    You are either being deliberately obtuse or you are genuinely stupid. Based on my time here the latter is the less likely.

    Conservatives here whip themselves into frenzies on a daily basis over things that get completely forgotten weeks later. There is a new 'Obama is destroying the world' thread every other day. During the Ebola panic the old Politics Central thread saw 5 new Ebola-related topics started per week for 2 months, virtually all of them about Obama or the Democrats. As soon as the mid-terms ended the new threads stopped & the old ones went inactive. Ebola didn't, but conservatives magically stopped caring. Just one example of many.

    You are too smart to play dumb, it doesn't suit you.

    • Clearly a lot of the conservatives want to believe it's about states rights. The confederate battle flag however is not a symbol of the value of state rights. If anything it is an object lesson in how to become extinct by not cooperating with a central government.

        I guess you and I see the world differently. After all, Karl Rove said "Never let a crisis go to waste."

        Ebola, c'mon, really?

        Oh no, that was Obama adviser Rahm Emanuel who said that. Sorry, my bad.

          Like you, I see very few people advocating chattel slavery these days.

          Somehow though, the removal of the Confederate Battleflag from public display seems to have become a way to assuage the vileness and evil of the church attack in Charleston.
          You discount the meaning of the flag.

          You lost dude.

          If you'd won there would be a wack load of people still working as slaves...and no United States of America.

          I'd imagine that's a massive disappointment to some.

              You do realize that right now there is a thread on Marriage Equality where conservatives are declaring the 'beginning of the end', don't you? That is an actual quote. The professionally outraged conservatives are out in force yet again and you are too busy lowering yourself to playground retorts to even notice.

              I'm beginning to think I've overestimated you.

                You mean : centralist government of course ?

                And history taught and still is teaching that one can not cooperate with a centralist government .There are only two choices : to submit or to resist .

                          Earlier in this thread we had several people saying you might as well burn or take down the US flag as well. Seems you were with the take it down crowd.... They just followed your line of thought....
                          “The time has come,” the Walrus said,
                          “To talk of many things:
                          Of shoes—and ships—and sealing-wax—
                          Of cabbages—and kings—
                          And why the sea is boiling hot—
                          And whether pigs have wings.”

                            Apparently, you misunderstood, in my point of view both are harmless and the only way someone could be truly offended by either is if they have a psychological disorder.

                              They only call themselves liberal.
