How long will S. Carolina take to remove that dang, infernal treasonous flag? Alabama removed theirs instantly. By the way, because of an incident involving Carolina’s flag years ago I have never ever again gone to the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival… ever again. Directly after I bought my #JazzFest ticket and entered the gate, guess what I saw concerning South Carolina. Note: NOT old Glory… (read more)
Because of #SouthCarolina’s rebel flag I stopped #coldturkey going to the New Orleans Jazz Fest years ago. A large group of revelers from South Carolina were waving a very large confederate flag inside the gate at the #JazzFest. I turned right around and asked for a refund of my ticket. I asked to see the manager. The #2 man at the Jazz Fest himself refused to return my money. I have never, ever spent another penny on a New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival. PERIOD!!
Did a lady really climb up the flagpole to remove the Carolina flag? Is the below tweet real? UPDATE: Yes this is real. A black female climbed the pole in S. Carolina on Saturday morning, June27, and removed the flag. Once she climbed back to the ground, she was arrested and the flag was run back up. Oh, Carolina, you are wrong for this!!
I posted the below picture from a discussion that my cousin replied to relating how Columbus and the Pilgrims were actually illegal aliens who stole the land then enslaved another race. This site might not handle his post (which I inserted below the picture) because of privacy settings. However, this picture exemplifies what South Carolina’s Flag represents.
The Rebel flag represents this.
How hypocritical THEY are!! These right-wingers today are blind and cheeky. Plus, they want to wave a treasonous, Confederate flag in everyone’s face.
..NOW paleface in 2015 wants to turn away so-called “illegal aliens.”
Where is the wrath of God? Where is the swift justice? There is no such thing any longer in America. After the assassination of Abraham Lincoln, how many and how swiftly were the perpetrators hanged? Very, very swiftly and all of them were executed. This boy, Dylann Roof, assassinated a State Senator and 9 other black people and is still breathing good air. Will the South Carolina justice system provide swift retribution for the Church victims and for the country? I do not think so at all. This boy will most likely still be breathing and spouting hatred and execrations 50 years from now.
I am 9 months deep into the Civil War in my reading of the book LINCOLN, upon which most of the current movie is based. President Lincoln’s Plan at this point concerning captured or run-away slaves is to ship them back to Africa or some place in a climate congenial to them. This is what freedman Frederick Douglas intuitively said about Lincoln’s Colonization plan: “The president does not understand that the black man is an American with no desire to live elsewhere. His attachment to the place of his birth is stronger than iron.”
Furthermore, since the beginning of the war, Douglas avowed that “nothing would terrify the South like the vision of thousands of former slaves wielding weapons on behalf of the Union Army.” He continued, “The very fact of color in this case would be more terrible than powder and balls,” and that the survival of the nation depended upon enlisting the “slaves and free colored people into the army. We are striking the rebels with our soft white hand, when we should be striking with the iron hand of the black man, which we keep chained behind us. We have been catching slaves instead of arming them.”
