This is very puzzling to me considering the confederates were against America by wanting their own country. Yet conservatives were making such a big fuss when South Carolina had to take the rebel flag down. After all, this is America so why have any other flag besides the American flag up and the state flag. Especially a flag that wanted to break up America. But conservatives believe they're true Americans, even though they support the rebel flag. Makes no sense to me.

I am no fan of the Confederate flag... but it is a person's own business if they want to hang it on there own property. But tell me this.. why do liberals say they are so "progressive" support a racist party like the democratic party? They are the ones who started the KKK. They fought to keep slavery... They did not want to give blacks the right to vote. Liberals say they are not like that anymore. But they are they have just gone from slavery to enslavement. The democrats still are the racist party. With the New Deal... they just gave blacks more crumbs to get their vote.3

Sure it makes sense, its not about that its about freedom of expression something they have sworn to uphold since its part of the constitution. What doesn't make sense is why people can't understand why a person would support anothers belief when it doesn't coincide with their own. Besides which the flag has to do with what came after (since technicly that was not the confederate flag that was flown during the war) that is the huge economic devastation that hit the south which the north despite being a "united nation" was completely content to allow to continue. That's why to this day the majority of the south is still far poorer then the north its a way of showing solidarity for the south while reminding the nation of how they where abandoned by the north for over a hundred years.0
