Which flag represents terror and hostility today? The racist confederate flag or the imperial flag?

The NE, West Coast, and areas around the Great Lakes should secede.

The rest of America can then become the inbred theocracy it seems to desire.

Republicans are nakedly sociopathic. In Ideology, and Policy enactment. There is little left of the "Compassionate Conservative" veneer of Bush, it's all Ayn Rand all the time.

Does the libturds left understand the Confederacy was part of this country`s history? And the lionshare of Confederates and Slave owners were Southern Democrats?

The "liberals" and the "conservatives" are just two sides on the coin of white supremacy (i.e., inferiority complex masked with overcompensation). "Liberals" treat non-whites — especially Black people — like pets while "conservatives" treat non-whites — especially Black people — like the plague.

Abe Lincoln made a grave error. He should have just let them go.

Emodi Kann · December 30, 2017 at 7:21 am

This is just more fake news designed to sidetrack the ignorant masses who were never taught the history of the United States, much less the real causes for the Civil War—one of which was NOT slavery. They also can't grasp only 3-6% of European Americans at that time could have even afforded to own them—-and the majority didn't come from Africa either. The primary cause of the Civil War was state's rights, and that is the reason so many Southerner's sacrificed their lives. Lincoln freeing the slaves was a means to slap the faces of those he felt were instigating the rebellion. Unfortunately, Harriet Beecher Stowe's Uncle Tom's Cabin (completely fictional novel) became the foundation for how the North believed slaves were treated—which would actually be the equivalent of making a major purchase only to destroy it—sensationalized drivel at its finest. But politicians have pandered to those who lack the academic skill to study or do actual research; preferring to to play the role of entitled victims. Furthermore, there is no legal definition of "black" even though gov't forms from gov't agencies use it for classifying individuals. In actuality, because there were so few slaves compared to European Americans, and immigration to the United States has been continuous, only those who immigrated this generation could call themselves "black". (That is why Africans laugh at Americans who travel there and call themselves "black"). Why do they think Hitlary smirked when she agreed when asked about reparations?? She knew if individuals were ever tested, they would find they were more European/Caucasian than "black" and never receive a dime—and that's without deducting all the "benefits" (i.e. cost of health care, housing, food stamps, etc.,) they have already been able to claim just by deciding to identify themselves as "black." Look at Oblama; he was just as much Caucasian, but he profited by calling himself "black" and demonstrating racism towards his Caucasian ancestry.
There is nothing wrong with those who take pride in their Southern heritage; and statues of great leaders should not be arbitrarily taken down by idiots with IQ's under 80. There is also nothing wrong with any state wishing to separate from the USA and the corruption of the swamp in Washington which hasn't represented the people since being a politician became a career. FDR's corruption and involving corporations to form the FED ensured enslavement of all working class Americans; and we have been slaves ever since. The chains will only come off when the workers unite and refuse to continue funding the corrupt system. However, those that have the means to do so are jumping ship and leaving as fast as they can. The best advice I've given my children is to leave the US after they finish their education and go where they (and their money) are treated best so that they never contribute to the corrupt system here. Let the liberals have it; and let them deal with the problems they have created when they are the only ones left to fund the handouts they promise to get elected.

It always amuses me that the hyper nationalistic conservatives fly the Confederate flag, or a version thereof, and think that they're patriotic.

Yes we still love Al Franken.
You are right Tom.
The fix was in for Mr. Franken and nobody I know is happy that they got rid of him.
It was certainly planned by the GOP…..I HAVE NO DOUBTS ABOUT IT.

Look at the Lincoln Memorial. He sits on a Fascist throne.

Will224000 · December 30, 2017 at 7:21 am

Lincoln was a Fascist. He was put in power by the Northern Industrialists. A new government was set up with the Act of 1871 and is a Corporate State. This did not exist in minds of the Founding Fathers except the traitor Hamilton. Lincoln disbanded the Government and set himself up as a totalitarian dictator. He invaded the Southern States.

XHellXGeistX · December 30, 2017 at 7:21 am

I think the North and South should make a mutual, peaceful agreement to secede from eachother. Would solve a lot of problems.

The US in its current form is too vast, unwieldy and culturally dissimilar to govern properly. I think it's a myth that Americans share the same values.

The South clearly wants a different form of government compared to the North. Perhaps Lincoln was wrong in maintaining this fake "Union."

Maybe instead of "States Rights," we should have regional rights.

The other regions of the US could then decide if they would like to join the North, South or become independent themselves.

Then, there could be trade between regions, and a mutual NATO-like agreement to come to the defense of any former US region should it come under attack.

Just thinking out loud.
