I watched a video of the flag being removed, there were people chanting and screaming as one would expect, but what came next really shocked me!

http://www.washingtonpost.com/news/post-nation/wp/2015/07/10/watch-live-as-the-confederate-flag-comes-down-in-south-carolina/

They rolled it up like it deserved some respect, just shocking! It should have disappeared in the night. At least the chanting of hey hey goodbye befits a losing symbol.

Said stowage of that flag possibly reflects the leanings of the people doing the folding, but I don’t know that for certain. European Neo-Nazis are not allowed to use the swastika flag, so they use the Confederate battle flag instead. That says it all, for me.

I agree totally, that should have shamed them into lowering it years ago.

If they lost the war shouldn’t they give up on all that rebel crap?

I don’t understand. It isn’t a country, but it is an economic and political union.

If “things” existed before the war it is ok by me, if it was created after the war to glorify the losers then it is rebal crap and should be relegated to a museum of embarrassing crap. That huge carving could be converted to MLK or something more appropriate than people fighting for slavery or the right for their state to have slaves.

EDIT:

“Things” does not include slavery, of course.

You folks really have no understanding of what the Confederate War was all about. Need to study on your History before posting false info. That is the issue in this country now.

Slavery comes to mind as the reason for the civil war. Is that not correct in the current mythos?

Are you referring to that crappy rag from a failed rebellion over the right to keep humans as slaves?

No. Just talking about your whining. thats the problem with America today. No one can get past anything.

Why don’t we just go ahead a kill ourselves because we damn near wiped out the Indians. Let’s give their land back while we’re at it.

Wah. Wah. Wah. Bleeding hearts.
