I guess not unexpected to see the local Democrat Party mouthpiece jump on board the “Ban The Confederate Flag” nonsense stirred up after the horrific shooting and murder of 9 innocent people at the AME Church in Charleston. After all, they subscribe to several hate rants fostered by Liberals.
But I also couldn’t help but notice the lone comment under their article (at the time of this writing) and the seething hatred contained it, a liberals means of combating hate by being even more hateful.
Fran Hammond · Top Commenter · Vancouver, Washington who says: “Those refusing to voice their view on this issue have already let all know where they stand. They are pandering to their bigoted ‘conservative’ base.”
Well Frannie, do we ban everything that offends somebody? Or do we just ban what offends you, the hell with everybody else?
Is it your fellow White people you hate? Or just Southern White People that merit your hate? Or only Republicans that should be hated for not agreeing with you all of the time?
What about those Blacks calling for death of Whites?
What of Black Serial Killers? What symbol must be banned because of their crimes? What symbol must be banned to stop the Black on Black murders in places like Chicago and Detroit?
And what if the flag, which isn’t even the actual Confederate Flag, incidentally, is banned? What then? Do you really think you have stopped hate?
No doubt the flag was highjacked by racists and White Supremacists, but need I remind you that they also fly the American Flag? Should that be banned as well?
Racists are not racist because of the flag, they are racist because they have hate in their hearts and if they don’t wave that flag, they just wave something else.
And where does all of this banning cease? When only your feelings and likes and dislikes are allowed?
That flag was fought under by both Blacks and Whites, even today many Blacks respect, honor and hold it dear to embrace their own Southern heritage.
I agree, hate is wrong, but all you are doing is fostering more hate and not addressing the real issues of why these people go off and murder others.
That flag did not cause any of them to murder, some in the past have never waved.
Do you really think if that flag did not exist that mass murders and shootings would not have happened?
Get over your own hate and let’s put our heads together to seek real solutions, not focus on an inanimate historical image that is not going to go away.
In the end, if we ban everything that offends somebody else, we will not be left with anything.
Think about it.
