    Sure does make you wonder how much of this “hate” is being manufactured, either by progressives or big brother. The only reason this man posted signs like that was to incite anger and hope for violent reactions from his fellow blacks. I have a feeling “we ain’t seen nothing yet..”

    Here is something else funny. Black organizations, years ago, wanted to get rid of the statutes of black men holding the reins of horses that decorated lawns. They should have done their homework as well. These statutes represented homes that participated in the Underground Railroad. Yep… if the statute was decorated one way or the other, it meant that the house was safe… or had been compromised. With absolutely no common sense, the black community decided that these statutes were racist in nature and wanted them removed.

    I looked around today and thought… I THINK this is still the United States of America. But wait… people are getting beat up because someone else feels that the bloodied person’s opinion is not acceptable. What ever happened to peoples right to their own opinion? Since when did that become a reason to beat someone else? And if the people that object so much to the flag everyone is going crazy about… it never was the OFFICIAL flag of the Confederacy (the Stars and Bars). This is the Naval Jack of the Confederacy. The large “X” on the flag represents the “Southern Cross” the shape of the Cross St. Andrew was Crucified upon. It had absolutely no relationship with Slavery. It was created in 1863 and was a flag of honor. Unfortunately. the Klan, the Aryan Nation, White Supremacists and other groups adopted the Naval Jack and gave it the racial reputation it has today. Damn America.. get educated.

    I used to enjoy reading comments on the Blaze. Lately, I just shake my head and wish Conservatives would disavow all this racist clap-trap I have been reading. Idiots are Idiots… their color does not matter. I see so many of you making subtle racist remarks it makes my stomach turn. Most of you don’t understand the politics of the Civil War… the Confederate flag everyone is so concerned about was the Confederate Navy Jack… NOT the official flag of the Confederacy (The Stars and Bars). Slavery was definitely an issue in the war… but economics was the major reason. If the South Seceded, the North could not support the Government. The Southern States Seceding forcing the North to invade the South.

    you need to do a bit of reading. The Civil War was fought for more reasons than just slavery. In fact, the main reason was economics… The North fought the war over money. Plain and simple. The South was exporting the lion’s share of Cotton and the Northern States did not generate enough money to support the Government. When the South started Secession, Lincoln was asked, “Why not let the South go in peace?” To which he replied, “I can’t let them go. Who would pay for the government?” (go ahead…Google the quote) Sensing total financial ruin for the North, Lincoln waged war on the South. The South fought the War to repel Northern aggression and invasion.

    America, please, please educate yourself before opening your mouth and looking foolish. The flag in question is the Confederate Navy Jack designed in 1863 and was NEVER the Official Confederate flag. The Official Flag of the Confederacy (the Stars and Bars) had 3 wide stripes (Red White and Red). There was a blue field in the upper left corner with 7 stars (later versions included 9 stars and 13 stars).
    As for the Confederate Naval Jack, the large X on the flag was to honor Saint Andrew and was called “The Southern Cross” (Saint Andrew was crucified on an X shaped Cross). The stars simply represented the states that seceded from the Union (they added Kansas and Missouri – slave states that did not secede). This flag symbolized that States Rights should be held above Federal Rights. It had nothing at all to do with slavery.
    Unfortunately, Hate Groups such as the Klan, White Supremacists, The Aryan Nation and others adopted this flag and gave it the reputation it has today. These groups were never given permission to use the Navy Jack in any form.

    Actually, once again people show how ignorant they truly are. The Confederate Flag that everyone is suddenly up in arms about is the Confederate Navy Jack Flag… not the official Confederate Flag. The Klan, Skinheads, Nazi Party and such have given this once honorable flag a very bad reputation. This particular flag had nothing to do with slavery, it was intended as a protest flag against Federal laws being given priority over State laws. Folks.. it is a FLAG… Flags are not racist. They have no power to keep anyone down unless they allow it to.
    Slavery has NEVER been acceptable even when practiced by the ancient Egyptians and African Tribesmen.

    What gives the people of Bethlehem the right to force a bear from it’s natural habitat? Bears have been in that area longer than humans have. I mean… come on. Was the bear sporting a Confederate Flag? Was the bear a Christian? Maybe the bear was a conservative… or a progressive. Wait… it was a BLACK Bear!!!! RACIST Bethlehem citizens!!!! I bet the bear would have been left alone if it were a Polar Bear!

    I can understand that the employee may not have recognized the Isis flag. If Mr. Netzhammer did not say it was the isis flag and just handed over a picture, well… yea, maybe.

    as a once great Democratic President said as he passed bill after bill to put the “Great Society” in place: I’ll have those N****rs voting democrat for the next 200 years”, and lets not forget this one: “These Negroes, they’re getting pretty uppity these days and that’s a problem for us since they’ve got something now they never had before, the political pull to back up their uppityness. Now we’ve got to do something about this, we’ve got to give them a little something, just enough to quiet them down, not enough to make a difference.” Who dared make such remarks? Lyndon Baines Johnson!!

    Spin… While I agree that there were reasons other than slavery that led to the Civil War… some of them still centered on slavery. Economically, the Southern States wanted to be able to expand slavery westward as the country grew. The Republicans (yes… the REPUBLICANS) in Congress did NOT want that to happen.The South wanted State Law to overrule Federal Law so that they could override any laws regarding slavery. The Abolition Movement was growing and the Southern States saw that as a threat to their economy (remember, while the North Industrialized, the South remained mainly dependent on cotton crops, and that depended on cheap labor – slavery). And when Abraham Lincoln was elected, he won the election without a single Southern Electoral Vote… the South had lost influence. That led to the secession of the Southern States and THAT led to the Civil War.

    Are we just supposed to forget that the Civil War actually happened (like some people claim that The Holocaust never happened)? Are we supposed to forget 258,000 men that died defending a cause that they believed in? Just wipe away their memory? Remember, the Civil War was not ONLY fought over slavery. While much of the reason was about slavery, there were political and economic reasons as well.
    Don’t misunderstand me, slavery was abhorrent both then and even when the Egyptians and the African Tribesman practiced it centuries earlier on the African Continent.

    Liberals / Progressives always show their true colors… then try to recant in order to save face.
    By the Way… how do you “accidently” tweet something? Since I do not have (nor will I ever have) a Twitter account, don’t you have to confirm the message before sending it? And why would he have written such a thing if he did not mean to send it? Just saying.

    Dear Founding Fathers,
    It is with shame that I write you today. Your founding principles have once again been overturned by the vast minority of this once great nation. We have failed you on so many issues:
    • Lifelong politicians in Washington
    • Graft and bribery run rampant among our elected officials
    • Elected officials breaking the laws they are supposed to defend and uphold
    • Elected officials that flat out lie to the American People to pursue their own private agenda
    • Elected officials that “rule” by, or allow others to rule by Executive Privilege
    • Our borders left wide open
    • Non-Citizens that are” legally” allowed to VOTE in some of our major cities and that are allowed to Illegally vote in National Elections by corrupt officials
    • A Congress that meekly sits by and watches our Executive Branch run amuck and do as they please
    • Politician’s that pick and choose which laws to uphold and which laws the ignore because they don’t like them
    • Elected officials that ignore the will of their constituents and do only what is in their own best interest
    • Constituents that keep electing leaders that are corrupt because they refuse to see the corruption or learn the true nature of their candidate
    And the worst of all, a population that is willing to give up the freedoms and the rights that you fought so hard to establish and preserve, because our elected officials tell them it will make them safer.
    With Deepest Regrets,
    The American Citizens

    PLEASE DO NOT TAKE THAT PARTICULAR CONFEDERATE FLAG DOWN!!!! LET IT STAND AS IT IS.
    OK… pun aside, just because a “thing” offends people does not mean that you can discriminate against those that choose to display it. You don’t have to like it, agree with it, look at it, or anything else. You have the right to think it is in poor taste. You have the right to dislike it and what it stands for. You have the right to purchase one and burn it (like they do the American Flag). But you DO NOT have the right to ban it. Stores and retailers have the right to refuse to sell it or choose to sell it. Just because you don’t like something does not mean it is evil, bad, racist, etc.
    Here in the United States of America, we have the right to say and do and display any stupid thing we like. Say for instance, the “rainbow” flag. That offends me because that is not what the rainbow is supposed to represent. But I do not condone banning it. Nor do I condone banning any other country’s flag, say for instance Mexico’s flag. You have a basic right to fly the flag of your forefathers, your heritage, your nationality. Stop the stupidity of trying to ban an object that offends you… after all, you morons offend me and I do not condone banning you…

    Flags are not racist. They are simple cloth that represented another era in time. In their day… slavery was NOT illegal, but a practice that was done worldwide. Yea America… worldwide. NOT just here.
    PLEASE do not misunderstand me… slavery was never right… not even when the people on the African Continent practiced slavery. I do not make excuse for what happened in the past. It was what it was and nothing we do today can change the past. The flag of England once flew over this nation and they held the Colonies as property of England. The American people did as the King commanded or suffered the consequences regardless of race, color or creed.

    Please… don’t forget LBJ’s wonderful opinion of the black race:
    Democrat President Lyndon Baines Johnson stated, “I’ll have those n*****s voting Democratic for the next 200 years” as he confided with two like-minded governors on Air Force One regarding his underlying intentions for the “Great Society” programs.

    I bet Senator Byrd from West Virginia NEVER had a Confederate Flag in his possession. He was a simple man of the people. Oh.. never mind that he was a recruiter for the Klan back in his day. He was a fine upstanding Democrat and we all know that even IF he had a Confederate Flag… it really did not mean he was a racist.

  • June 25, 2015 at 11:52pm

    Oh.. .by the way… the scumbags that just stood there filming the attack are cowards. In my day, that crap would not fly. Today… maybe you can sell it to someone… Scumbags… man up and take a stand.
