I don't know. In my mind the only people who could be down with Trump are racists and dumb bigots scared of someone coming to take their guns and confederate flags or the US army invading Texas or having someone any shade darker than ivory moving in next door.

are you insane? You understand people ARE trying very hard to take guns, right? That they HAVE banned/shamed the flag and people ARE being assaulted/robbed/murdered over it (by extreme racists, no less) ? 

being afraid of those things is dumb/racist/bigoted... how?

Banned/shamed a flag with deep roots in slavery and racism? You poor souls.

Seeing the American elections makes me realise how relative political scales are - what is being touted as leftist socialist whatever in America would be considered centre-right in the UK and Europe.

I realize there's a big push for gun control. I can't say that I care either way.

The flag, though, seeing as it's a universally recognized symbol of racism, slavery, violence and white supremacists deserves all the shame and dishonor it has received.

saudi arabia, qatar, FIFA, Apple/most electronics...  where's the outrage against CURRENT racism/slavery/violence?  Not to mention the lord and savior obama's support for terrorist groups who have child armies performing mass executions, are openly killing off tens of thousands of christians/nonmuslims, and regularly promoting terror attacks throughout the world?

you fucking retards are all of the sudden acting like white people and their flag [nevermind all the blacks who support it/have proud family history linked to it, right? they're racist too?] are the worst/need to be put in their place for stuff that happened generations ago, while completely ignoring things that are just as bad or worse that are happening right now, and you're acting like the people who are concerned about it are the crazies/bigots?

I wonder how people in syria, libya, egypt, tunisia, yemen, etc, would feel if you showed them a confederate flag, VS how they would feel seeing an obama, mccain, or clinton bumper sticker?

the banning per se isn't the issue. there ARE actual victims, and there will be more.  who's going to take responsibility for all this new black on black/black on white violence popping up now that the flag is an excuse to assault/rob/murder someone? Or is that white people's fault too?

'political correctness' is getting people killed, and people like you are only making it worse. Meanwhile your supposed grievances are NOTHING compared to stuff going on right this second as a result of people like you supporting blatant conmen/pc-panderers/race baiters...

People love to deflect, and not talk about problems. This is basic america at its best. Avoid talking about obvious problems and shit will never get better.

This is such a dumb argument. Do the white people with Southern heritage who think the flag is offensive, do their opinions not matter? Cause I'll tell you right now, there are a TON more white Southerners who think the flag is offensive than their are black counterparts but they're probably brainwashed by the liberal media right?

This is such a dumb argument.

Which is worse;

-  people feeling offended at the site of an inanimate object

or

- people being physically attacked/financially punished for displaying an inanimate object

?

You make it sound up there like people can't feel outrage at both past and present day slavery.

Woah there alaskun, chill your beans. You made lots of assumptions. I never said the confederate flag was the worst thing ever, or that there aren't current slavery issues that I disagree with. I just said it's got racist tones, and it was rightly shamed. I can think that AND ALSO think there are other, even worse things happening.

Sounds like you have a complex.

I'll lay it out straight. Life's not fair. It's not fair to black people, it's not fair to people of other races, and guess what, in a certain instances it's not fair to white people. Be glad the worst they have to deal with is the small chance that they could get 'physically attacked/financially' punished cause people wanted to wave their dumbass flag in some bullshit name of freedom. Cause this absolutely pales in comparison to people physically attacked/financially punished for simply being black.
