I'm contemplating buying a Confederate flag, not because I agree with anything they stood for, but because I despise what's being done in protest of it. The news today is that at FREAKING GETTYSBURG, they're pulling anything depicting it. Reenactors can't use it anymore. It's vanishing from everything but a single museum exhibit.
This is going too far. We're censoring our own history out of misguided sensitivity thanks to the actions of rank opportunists capitalizing on a tragedy.
Do you figure it would land me on some kind of government watchlist to do this? That I even have to ask tells me something has gone seriously wrong with this country.

I also believe that they are going too far. I don't agree with covering up history. Now they want all land monuments from that war to be removed. Having artifacts to represent the sacrifice that people made during that time because people want to make it all about race is ridiculous. My grandfather is full-blooded Native American. You don't see me throwing fits over the past and things that I never experienced firsthand. If that were the case, I would fight to have the truth about Christpher Columbus revealed and taught in schools since the truth isn't being told. We were taught to celebrate Columbus. Why should I celebrate someone who raped, pillaged and slaughtered MY ancestors? Tit for tat. People are getting out of hand with all this political correctness crap.2
