You Want To Whine About Being Offended?
Here, Let Me Give You Something To Whine About

Apropos of Stacy’s post on the attempt to shove the Confederate flag down the memory hole, Michael Z. Williamson and his friends have some suggestions for a replacement flag guaranteed to offend just about everybody, but especially the members of the pro-slavery, pro-segregation Democratic party.

Also, some clever fellow has introduced a petition to strip former Senator and Klansman Robert Byrd’s name from everything.

If you want to actually buy a Confederate flag, if for no better reason than Amazon, Wal-Mart, Mitt Romney and other bien pensants think you shouldn’t have one, Cooter (Ben Jones) can fix you up. Or you can examine the fine selection at the Ruffin Flag Company of Georgia.

On the other hand, Comrade, if you prefer Officially Approved Symbols, Amazon can fix you up with merchandise commemorating that great (National) Socialist regime led by Chancellor Hitler. Meanwhile, Walmart can fix you up with iconography of that racist murdererrevolutionary hero Che Guevara!

Mychal Massie has an opinion on the subject, and so does Zo Rachel. Also also, Allen West has some surprising news regarding the slain Charleston pastor’s opinion of the flag.

Apologies for the lack of linkagery this morning, but I spent most of the morning and afternoon at the VA here in Las Vegas dealing with some unexpected bleeding. All’s well, and things should be back to normal tomorrow.

    If the debate was anything like your posts, then you claims of victory are merely an idiot’s conceit. He owned you in just the little that was posted here.

    Oh, I see, slavery, segregation, and racist klan violence is a purely subjective call, and the flag really is just a flag!

    Slavery, segregation and racist klan violence are not purley subjective at all. You must be a raving progressive or completely insane. There I go repeating myself.

    Slavery, segregation and violence are atrocities that happened to individuals. There were many black slave owners during the early years of this nation. How many black free men were there I do not know. The point is that not all black people were slaves and so not all black people even have a legacy of slavery in their families.
    Was it “all white people’s fault” that slavery existed- another debate entirely. What I do know is that not person white, black or otherwise owns a slave in this country today so why all this screaming about slavery today ?
    Why do folks like you feed into it? What have you as an individual done to a black person that cause’s you to feel guilty?

    The only segregation we see today is economic segregation. This has been part of the human fabric for thousands of years. Are we to listen to the ravings of the perpetual victim classes about income inequality because of other segregationist policy’s in out history?

    Violence I cannot argue with you about. The thing is there is an exponentially greater amount of violence committed against blacks today by other blacks than there is by people of any other race.
    Show me an individual black person harmed by a white supremacy loon and I will help put that person away or put him down.
    Why all this conflict over things that haven’t happened to a vast majority of the individual’s who are raising hell about it.
    To quote one of our country’s greatest political leaders… “What difference at this point does it make?”

    Your ignorance of history is appalling, but since you’ve been polite you can hang around. The Commentariat needs fresh punching bags anyway.

    “A difference that makes no difference is no difference.” The policies of the New Left are pretty much indistinguishable from those of Senator Theodore Bilbo – the blacks are inferior creatures who need to be kept in their place and “helped” by their betters.

    And to further your education, it was Democrats who opposed the Selma march, Democrats who fought the passage of the 1964 Civil Rights Act, and Democrats who enacted Jim Crow and gun control laws intended to disarm blacks. Own your history, Democrat tool.

    Also, the Reverend Martin Luther King Jr. was a Republican.

    Jeez I quit reading your reply after you referred to me as Dr. Freud.
    “…collective historical past.”

    Talk about your construct’s.

    Read about Anthony Johnson, the father of chattel slavery in the colonies. He was a free black man who went to court to keep his indentured servant, John Casor, for life.

    You just repeated exactly what I wrote, i.e. the New Left is the same party that opposed desegregation, and the Civil Rights Act(odd that you’re now supporting their flag), and “they’re the new plantation owners”. I’m aware that MLK was a Republican, but you’re saying Elijah Cummings, a democrat who marched with King is racist who sees black as inferior”. This is patently ridiculous, and you’re a great example of the point that was being made, so thanks!
