Okay, Destroy all of the monuments regarding the Civil War southern flag.  For bid the flag so that you poor winners (or is that whiners?) can be ignorant of the cause of the civil war.

Why not go to the libraries and take all of the books regarding this war from the shelves and burn them?

Then you can pretend it never happened.

So removing monuments from government property is to you the same as an outright ban on confederate symbols?

So those citizens who like Confederate Flags to be displayed do not pay taxes in your ideal world?  I'm sure the local government guru's say, since we took your flag that you ancestors fought for... you don't have to pay for this court house, city hall, school, or monument.

IT HAPPENS TO BE HISTORY.  WHY NOT KEEP IT AS A REMINDER THAT SOMETIMES WE ARE WRONG?

you can hang a flag from your porch and stick bunches of them on your car if you want.  but the only flags that fly from government property should be city, county, state, or federal flags.

As is, all that is being eliminated is evidence of racism.The day the democrat  party ends I will believe the left truly wants to eliminate symbols of past racism.

Why should government property fly a flag other than an official city, county, state, or federal flag?

Byteryder: Okay[.] Destroy all of the monuments regarding the Civil War southern flag. [sic]

Byteryder, stop trying to alter the facts to suit your argument. Laws have been passed to remove Confederate monuments and rebel flags from public property, something that should had been done decades ago. No one in New Orleans advocated destroying those artifacts.

For bid [sic] the flag so that you poor winners (or is that whiners?) can be ignorant of the cause of the civil war [sic].

There you go again, Byteryder! You're changing the facts to suit your argument. Displaying the Stars and Bars has not been forbidden in New Orleans. Many states have enacted laws that prohibit it from being displayed openly on public property. And , by the way, the root cause of the American Civil War was slavery. Evidently, that's a historical fact you Lost Cause romanticists, Southern apologists, and US history revisionists still stubbornly refuse to admit.

Why not go to the libraries and take all of the books regarding this war from the shelves and burn them?

What would that accomplish? The Civil War is ingrained in the American psyche. Oral history of the events of the Southern Rebellion of 1861 would continue on, just as it has for over a century and a half. 

Then you can pretend it never happened.

Byteryder, what you and many others in this forum do is continue to pretend that the root cause of the  American Civil War was not slavery, when in fact it was. That's why your appeal to ridicule that suggests that all records pertaining to that war be destroyed is particularly asinine.

You know what they say about those who forget the lessons that history has taught?  Yes, They will repeat it.

What about those who attempt to ignore history, like you and many others in this forum? You ignore the fact that the root cause of the Civil War was slavery, you ignore the hatred and racial bigotry that war caused and which still festers a century and a half on. And have you noticed, Byteryder? It's always you right-wingnuts who continually babble about secession and taking up arms against governmental authority. Evidently, you on the right have forgotten the tragic lesson the Civil War taught this Nation. And, apparently, based on your hatred of President Obama and the federal government, you are willing to repeat that tragic episode in this country's history.

That's one way of looking at it. Another is are you
willing to repeat that tragic episode in this country's history to get your way?.

It is the ISIS/Communist way!

If any monument, person or place offends you remove it!

It is the totalitarian way!
