On Fort Bragg in North Carolina, there is a small graveyard out in the middle of nowhere that has Confederate soldiers buried. There are small Confederate flags on the graves in a similar fashion that you see small US flags on the graves at the National Cemeteries. In this case, I'd let these guys have a pass. The graves are 15 miles into the woods and not visible from a paved road.


Obviously they have been given a pass, at least to date. And I, for one, have no problem with that whatsoever.

Can't say for sure if they still have the flags placed there anymore, it's been 15 years since I was last there and saw them. From what I remember, the place was tended twice a year by one of those groups like the "Daughters of the Confederacy". Very small graveyard maybe 10-15 graves, but I wonder with the push to remove the flag from government locations like statehouses if this will force someone to remove these.

I hate how apologists for the confederacy have sullied the name of the states, so now everything has to get done federally or it's no good. By the time of the Civil War, a citizen of a free state could go to a slave state, buy a slave, return to their home state, and keep that slave in perpetuity, with state authorities required to help against any escape attempt. And because that's what "state's rights" has come to mean, we essentially can't have any policy more significant than driver cell phone use end at a state line, all of us standing or falling with Alabama and Wisconsin.

Heh. I wonder if there are cemeteries in Germany where soldiers are buried under tasteful little hakenkreuze...

Next you have the far-left who truth be told do not like the USA at best and hate it at worst. This is the kind who think the S&S represents slavery, genocide, theft, and any other bad thing they can think of. They are the kind that pushes the bans listed above.

No, but people do. And it just illustrates what I said, the call will come from the fringe first and slowly mainstream.

Some film critic says "Gone With the Wind" should be banned as well. Is it getting crazy enough for you?

It is easy to see what is happening. The lefties do not like southern culture or valuers, so they are trying to snuff out any symbols of the south. They are effectively launching a cultural War of Northern Aggression. And so much of the nation is doing their bidding to "be nice."

1st off the far right , Westover Baptist Church , is just as anti-American as anybody on the far left.
So some clown wants to ban gone with the wind, so what. The movie is not going anywhere.
Stop listening to the extreme clowns such as Nation of Islam, Westboro Baptist church, scientilogy, its all toxic.
Look slavery was wrong. Thats the bottom line. Why honor a cuture that promoted slavery.

OUR culture--that of the United States of America--promoted slavery. Our flag has much more history of promoting slavery than anything from the Civil War. Tearing down Confederate battle flags and statues is not going to change a thing.
