Would you feel safe in this mob of rabid, rowdy, fired up Trump Supporters?

Trump makes NO effort to be president of all the people, he is CZAR ONLY of Hate riddled Red Necks with Red Faces from the Red States still flying the Confederate FLAG!

I do not recall seeing the Confederate Flag flown at half-mast in Vietnam during my tour of duty, 1965-66. Do you?

How did so-called "Evangelical Christians" get so mixed up?

Are we on the brink of another Civil War with the South and Southwest states who are fearful that the "non-white" population in America is out striping the so-called, "white population?"384

there's always room for compromise. if racist goobers want to fly the dixie swastika like their pathetic cause is still in question, it should be legal for the opposition to fire weapons produced before 04/1865 at them while they're doing it.

As a former attorney, mayor, United States Senator, and Vice President, who is now, running for president Biden is too busy slapping down that incompetent POS, installed illegally in the WH with the aid of Putin.

Trump has zero experience in government, none in reference to the Constitution, and only knowledgeable about CORRUPTION, child sex scandals, hanging out with sexual predators, porn stars, and Mafia thugs from Russia.

At 78.9 years, and rapidly approaching my expiration date, I have witnessed a cultural change from the late 1950s to the present day and time.

I am disheartened by Donald J. Trump's blatant license to America to discriminate against Afro-Americans, Hispanics, Liberals, non-Christians, Muslims, etc.

We are not going backward, Trump is trying to take America to the Dark Ages where despots ruled, and Religion was a club in their quill.

Our challenge is to DEFEAT this Enemy of Civilization & LOCK his, fat arse mouth up till he rots in prison with his entire Crime Family, and, the leaders of this FAILED COUP!

F*** T-RUMP!

You might want to let the Southern States know that considering all the confederate flags they fly and all the confederate monuments they defend. There are many who still believe the "South will rise again!". The rotten apples didn't fall far from the diseased tree planted by the confederacy in the South and continually watered by their descendants.

The one that rears its tentacles every time an angry, under-educated, self-proclaimed militia group marches with Army fatiques, automatic weapons, explosives while waving the FLAG of Traitors: 

The Nazi's Swastika and the Flag of the Confederacy, that promoted slavery, killing men and women, and seizing their children to sell, because their state laws declared that Southerner Whites could own slaves legally.

And, one could do anything with their property. To this very minute, Southerners believe they can do anything they want with their property and National LAWS do not apply to them, only

Would you Southerners, still smarting from the Arse Whooping in 1865, be offended if Trump referred to them as "LOSERS & SUCKERS" because they were killed for a cause, and, not MONEY?

How can you continue to justify this Obstuse and 384 Sarcastic idiot, Donald J. Trump?  And, his tribe of Maroons, as my Hero, Bugs Bunny, would say, "MAROONS!"

As you may recall the Republican Party was a new political organization created during the lead up to the Civil War.

The Party of Lincoln is NOT the same as the PARTY OF TRUMP.

Trump is a MONSTER, lying mobsters, an accused child rapist, a confidante of Putin,
a wrecker of precedent, a fraud businessman sued over 4000 times for deception, lying, non-payment, cheating his suppliers, and a host of other reasons.

The Republicans, voters, and elected officials DO NOT get to hide behind the achievements of past Republicans.

They are too similar to the tenets of Fascism, too void of history to know it, and, more akin to HITLER, STALIN, MUSSOLINI, MAO, The Dict-Tator of Every Nation of the world and Putin, Kim Jun Un, and the Crown Prince Butcher of Saudi Arabia.

Flying the Confederate Flag is NOT a Symbol of Patriotism!

Technically it is, it's just not American patriotism.

Patriotism: noun - the quality of being patriotic; devotion to and vigorous support for one's country.

Those who fly the confederate flag are showing their devotion to the confederacy and showing vigorous support for confederate ideology.

"Our new (Confederate) government is founded upon exactly the opposite (of the US constitution and our founders) ideas; its foundations are laid, its cornerstone rests, upon the great truth that the negro is not equal to the white man; that slavery, subordination to the superior race, is his natural and normal condition. This, our new government, is the first, in the history of the world, based upon this great physical, philosophical, and moral truth." - Vice President of the Confederacy March 21, 1861

Flying the confederate flag is a physical representation of support for the confederacy and you cannot remove confederate ideology from it's foundation which was made very clear by the confederacy regardless of what it's sniveling defenders today falsely claim. It should be no surprise that those defending the confederate flag would try and lie about it, they merely reflect the lying treasonous foundation laid by their confederate ancestors who were willing to attack American soldiers killing hundreds of thousands of US citizens all to protect their supposed 'right' to own other humans as cattle.

How is calling those who fly confederate flags un-Patriotic a violation of free speech? Whose free speech is being taken away by rejecting confederate ideology?

Those here who pretend to support Free Speech, rarely support it when they don't agree with what is being said or done.

I didn't see anyone calling for confederates to be stripped of their right to fly a confederate flag. I do see sane patriotic Americans condemning confederate ideology as they should. In fact this seed is representative of free speech because everyone, even confederate scum, have a right to voice their opinions and I haven't seen any opinions here no matter how distasteful being banned or blocked. There is no right that forces the rest of society to validate or agree with such sick racist opinions and we have every right to confront and condemn those opinions.

Thus illuminating the real threats to Free Speech

Much like confederate ideology, you illuminate nothing. This seed and comments are a fine example of freedom of speech at work. If you disagree you have every opportunity to seed a rebuttal or can comment here in dissent as you're doing, no one is stopping you.

Also, even if those running NT wanted to limit or block some comments or seeds for supporting confederate ideology, that isn't an attack on your freedom of speech rights. I know many on the right want to believe that anyone telling them that their ideology is shit claim they're being suppressed or their rights are being infringed upon, but that's likely because they don't understand the freedom of speech protected under our constitution.

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances" - US Constitution 1st amendment

Do you see anyone here trying to get congress to make a law to stop anyone from voicing their opinions? Is it illegal for privately owned companies to choose what content they allow on their platforms? Of course not, so your whole "threats to free speech" claim simply doesn't stand up to even the mildest of scrutiny.

Your claim that some here aren't supporting freedom of speech was meaningless because it was without merit. No one here is violating the 1st amendment or even suggesting such a thing. Your attempt to deflect from that fact is noted.

speaks to the pervasive in this place

What exactly is "the pervasive in this place"? Are you saying some sort of violation of free speech is pervasive? Because it's not only no 'pervasive', it's non-existent.

That said, i have no desire to get into the usual endlessly debate you seem to prefer

That's fine, but you're essentially admitting that you aren't being silenced and can debate if you wanted to, you just don't feel it would be 'productive'.

My opinion is made and NOTHING you say is going to change

And no one is forcing you to accept the facts being presented, you can deny them all day, that's your right and no one is trying to silence you. And it's all the other peoples rights who have commented here to disagree with your opinions just as you disagree with theirs.

The greatest lie the devil ever told was to convince people that he didn’t exist.

Metaphorically speaking if need be for you heathens out there.

And JFK is rolling around in his grave that you used his name in such a context.    He was more of a conservative than many conservatives today but certainly wasn’t a liberal by todays standards.

Not even close

JFK was the one who proposed crafting the civil rights act which was supported by the Leadership Conference on Civil Rights, a coalition of 70 liberal and labor organizations.

“If by a "Liberal" they mean someone who looks ahead and not behind, someone who welcomes new ideas without rigid reactions, someone who cares about the welfare of the people-their health, their housing, their schools, their jobs, their civil rights and their civil liberties-someone who believes we can break through the stalemate and suspicions that grip us in our policies abroad, if that is what they mean by a "Liberal", then I'm proud to say I'm a "Liberal.” - JFK

Sounds pretty liberal to me.

I have never heard a Calcified Conservative every speak approvingly of him. 

On that fatefully day, November 22, 1963, seared into my being as the Day They Shot JFK, I was in boot camp in Augusta, Ga.

When the announcement came over the that he died on Dallas Texas, Southern s CHEERED!

You don't have to condone them to be a liberal, you can never choose to never get one or support someone to get one, you just have to accept that it's not your choice to make for others.

I am surprised that Biden as a Catholic does.

When did Biden or his wife get an abortion? As far as I know Biden merely supports the law which says it's not anyone else's decision, it's a legal choice between a woman and her doctor, anyone else can just fuck off, it's not their business. Only slimy pieces of garbage think their religious beliefs on the matter should trump other peoples choice and rights.

I find your point of view highly insensitive and insulting.

You are in charge of your conscience. You are not in charge of anyone else's. I assume you aren't a Catholic so I doubt you really know a lot about the faith. I was taught to examine my conscience and if I had doubts to pray about it. I'm pretty sure that's taught in all Christian denominations, tho.

I support choice. After praying and debating my conscience I left the church. However, it wasn't up to me decide who was a good Catholic or not unless I saw them doing something that was immoral, unethical, illegal, or highly dubious. Judge not lest ye be judged...I'm sure you've heard that one a time or two.

But we all know your president is a good Christian man....excuse me while I vomit

Is your religious belief to force your religious belief on others?

No. If you preach one thing but do another, such as preaching that no one should have an abortion but then in secret you get your mistress to have one, then you're a hypocrite. There is nothing hypocritical about someone who wouldn't choose to get an abortion themselves because of their own conscience or religious beliefs, but support the right of other Americans to make that choice for themselves.

We know that Biden is not a person of good character

What kind of utter bullshit is that? Who is this "We" you speak of, because you certainly can't include the majority of Americans in that sad and self serving "We" proclamation. You can think whatever you want, that's your choice, but you do not speak for me or millions of other Americans who think your personal opinion of Biden is just a smarmy sack of wet bullshit.

Of course, but, pushing their religious beliefs onto others in government offices, government legislations, county Board of Education, Laws, etc., in UNCONSTITUTIONAL and improper.

One's religion is a private choice, an individual choice that should be worn in your heart not constantly spat out from your tongue.

Both are free speech.    That you can’t handle one is your problem not the people who still want to display that flag.

What people flew both flags? Either you were a Confederate or you were a Yankee, people who "stood on the fence," were generally killed by both sides. One cannot be a US Patriot and a CSA Traitor at the same time. I find it very funny that you would support this aspect of  racism. Aren't you married to a white woman in VA. That would have gotten you lynched a few decades ago. See Loving vs. VA for an example of what VA thought about mixed race marriages. Aren't you a business owner with Gov't contracts? Do you really think you would have those contracts in the CSA?  

Just asking...

I think what he is saying is that our founders flew the American flag and they owned slaves and those who flew the confederate flag also owned slaves. The only difference is those who flew the American flag were smart enough to change and get rid of slavery whereas those who flew the confederate flag dug in their heels and attacked America in an effort to defend their supposed 'right' to own humans as cattle.

America has never claimed to be perfect, its founders desired it to change and wrote the constitution so that we could evolve towards being a "more perfect Union". It's interesting to note how the founders actually viewed slavery as the Vice President of the Confederacy admitted when he said:

"Jefferson, in his forecast, had anticipated this, (slavery) as the "rock upon which the old Union would split." He was right. What was conjecture with him, is now a realized fact. But whether he fully comprehended the great truth upon which that rock stood and stands, may be doubted. The prevailing ideas entertained by him and most of the leading statesmen at the time of the formation of the old Constitution were, that the enslavement of the African was in violation of the laws of nature; that it was wrong in principle, socially, morally and politically. It was an evil they knew not well how to deal with; but the general opinion of the men of that day was, that, somehow or other, in the order of Providence, the institution would be evanescent and pass away."

So yes, our founders did fly the American flag and also owned slaves, but they cannot be judged the same way as those who were the ones they were tolerating slavery for and who eventually broke with the Union specifically because of their desire to continue owning humans. Those flying the American flag had the backbone, the strength and the compassion to stand up for change when they realized they could no longer stomach the inhumane treatment of their fellow human beings. Those flying the confederate flag doubled down on their inhumanity and treasonously attacked our nation to prevent such change, to stop our nation from becoming a more perfect Union.
