I understand taking the Confederate flag down from the South Carolina state Capitol grounds. Flying a flag there should signal affiliation with some entity, and South Carolina isn’t affiliated with the defunct Confederate government.
I don’t understand banning the flag altogether as I see it being a matter of free speech. I don’t agree with some things people say or do, but it’s their bag, and I leave them alone to look or act stupid if they want.
Now there’s a move afoot to remove Confederate monuments like “Silent Sam.” The school teaches history. Confederacy is in the history of the country.
I see the political correctness totalitarians who want to throw the past into the dustbin as rewriting history. How are we as a society able to understand and avoid such wickedness as there was a century and more ago if we expunge the record and never study the history?
