The “confederate flag “ is not the prize, the prize is the US flag.
Once the liberals have everyone accepting of demonizing a long standing flag, they will immediate go after the US flag.
We have freepers here that think the Nikki did the right thing. Right, MinuteGal?
My thoughts exactly. The people who started agitating against the Confederate Flag have no more admiration for the Founders of this Country (nor for the Union) than they have for the Confederacy. The Confederate Battle Flag just happens to be an easy target, because they can even get a lot of "conservatives" to sign on to the deal and make this look like a mainstream project rather than one of radical subversion.
You don't have to be a Neo-Confederate or even a sympathizer of the Confederacy to see how rotten this all is. Leftist radicals and professional race agitators have been campaigning against the Confederate flag, and know that they can get moderates or even "conservatives" to go along for the ride on the issue. Such "conservatives" have either been cowed into submission by cries of racism, or they've been deluded into thinking that this is about Union vs. Confederacy or loyalty vs. secession. That isn't what this is all about - the people who want to take down the Confederate Flag would be even happier to see the American flag or any symbol of dreaded "dead white males" torn down. Do Republicans who support taking the flag down really think that Reverends Al and Jesse are doing this to honor the memory of Union soldiers?
