It doesn't mean different things, at all @Fishslayer777.

 

To WHITES, it is a symbol of WHITE SUPERIORITY and the continuation of SLAVERY.

 

To BLACKS, it is a symbol of WHITE SUPERIORITY and the continuation of SLAVERY.

 

To WHITES, many believe there is nothing wrong with continuing that symbolism.

 

To BLACKS, there is everything wrong with continuing that symbolism.

 

Other than stating the incorrect analysis that it means DIFFERENT things to different people, where do you stand on the symbol the confederate flag represents? You didn't make that clear.

Flags are SYMBOLS, and from it's inception, the Confederate "battle flag" was a SYMBOL for the revolt against the Government of the United States, a revolt that was intended to preserve and expand SLAVERY. There was NO other reason for the southern States to succeed from the Union as slavery was the ONLY "States Right" that was in dispute.

 

Today it is a symbol of White Supremacy and as onerous as the Walking Wheel of Hitler's Germany.

 

Brave Americans fought and died to destroy both, and to venerate such symbols is to desecrate the sacrifice of those brave Americans, which is what the Republican Party is all about these days with a leader who supports those who offer bounties for the killing of our GIs.

See here's the thing... that's what you WANT it to represent so you can justify hating.... I get that. However like I said earlier, the confederate flag means many different things to many different people. 

 

You can't suppress thought, you can only influence it.

Donald Trump is a symbol representing someone who stands up for white people in the ALL WHITE REPUBLICAN PARTY.

 

Not only is the Confederate Flag a symbol of Treason, it also represent WHITE people exercising slavery over black people Therefore, Trump World readily identifies with that flag.

So you wish to change the constitution regarding free speech? That is what protects us from an over reaching government. I believe the Supreme Court has made this settled law.

 

Unless of course you wish to discard the constitution and start all over.

Neither is flying a Nazi flag, but both should be.

 

The only "independence" I've seen associated with the stars and bars would be independence from Government - specifically the laws and regulations that make civilization possible.

The confederate flag means different things to different people. Hard to imagine if you believe its treasonist and racist, but it's true. Let the moral police begin their exorcism. 

 

However I can say without a doubt...  it is symbolic of southern white independence for sure, and flying one isn't illegal. 

 

Flags mean something even when you burn one.

Remember when patriots flew American flags? I think these people would be much happier with the hammer and sickle flying over their houses

CONFEDERATE FLAG IS A SYMBOL OF TREASON!

 

Reed Galen, co-founder of The Lincoln Project said, “The Confederate flag is a symbol of slavery and disunion. Its history is one of sowing division and oppression. Those who fly it proudly are celebrating the legacy of American slavery, the wrongful, and violent insurrection that followed, and the oppressive Jim Crow regime that came into power in many states.”

No patriotic American should brandish or proudly celebrate the iconography of a rebellion that resulted in tremendous devastation, the loss of more than 620,000 American lives, and the continued subjugation of Black America,” Galen continued. “Our namesake, Abraham Lincoln fought to preserve the Union. The Lincoln Project will do the same during the course of this campaign.”

 

President Trump’s co-opting of the Confederate Flag and relationships with known white nationalists like Stephen Miller, Steve Bannon and David Duke shows his true beliefs. His blatant racism, dog whistles and disinterest in unifying the country, particularly in recent days following the death of George Floyd, show just how far he is willing to go to stoke fear, incite violence, and ensure the country descends into further chaos up to the election.

 

John Weaver said: “Come this November, we’ll make sure Donald Trump and MAGA join the Confederacy as another group of failures history never forgets.”
