Don't Ban the Confederate Battle Flag

I was brought up in the great state of Texas, which, in many ways, is neither southern nor western, but during the Civil War, in which many of my ancestors fought, Texas was a part of the Confederacy.  That all is historical fact.

Therefore it is absolute rubbish to ban a flag which is an historical symbol by saying it is racial.  That statement is just rubbish.  The Confederate Battle Flag, in fact all the Confederate Battle Flags, are symbols of historical fact.  That is true, and yet, many race mongers of today, especially those of the Yankee persuasion and those who want to see racial tensions rise, are verbally forcing the more liberals of the Southerners to remove an bygone emblem that speaks of our historical past but does NOT speak of hatred in any way, shape or form!  I know many people, black, white, brown and yellow who agree with this statement and proudly flag this historical flag.

Because of this political bull, many companies right here in the good ole USofA have chosen, NOT been forced, to removed from sale the most common example of a Confederate Battle Flag, the "Stars and Bars".  On the other hand, these same commercial outlets are selling Nazi memorabilia which certainly is a sign of hatred!  

Even the liberally established public television PBS states the truth:

What led to the outbreak of the bloodiest conflict in the history of North America?
A common explanation is that the Civil War was fought over the moral issue of slavery.
In fact, it was the economics of slavery and political control of that system that was central to the conflict.
A key issue was states' rights.
The Southern states wanted to assert their authority over the federal government so they could abolish federal laws they didn't support, especially laws interfering with the South's right to keep slaves and take them wherever they wished.
Another factor was territorial expansion.
The South wished to take slavery into the western territories, while the North was committed to keeping them open to white labor alone.
Meanwhile, the newly formed Republican party, whose members were strongly opposed to the westward expansion of slavery into new states, was gaining prominence.
The election of a Republican, Abraham Lincoln, as President in 1860 sealed the deal. His victory, without a single Southern electoral vote, was a clear signal to the Southern states that they had lost all influence.
Feeling excluded from the political system, they turned to the only alternative they believed was left to them: secession, a political decision that led directly to war.

Wake up, America!  See that, indeed, what is happening to us here is what happened in Nazi German in the 1930s.  Let's not take this dictatorship lying down.  It's time we stand up and tell these liberal politicians and hate mongers to stop making up lies, to get out of office, and to allow America to be a free, God-fearing nation once again!

God bless America!

You nailed it, Sue. If you don't mind, I'm cross-posting this on my Facebook page.
