    The Confederate battle flag, long a symbol of hate, treason and oppression. Perfect for today’s Republican Party.

    Hey, it’s heritage, not hate, don’t ya know? And when you see a Swastika, you should think Oktoberfest.

    As bigotted and myopic as using the hammer and sickle to represent Democrats.

    I grew up in a very left-wing part of the South where every man stood when the band played Dixie, in memory of the War Between the States (in the right-wing parts, it’s the War of Northern Aggression).


    I knew some of the men who fought to preserve man’s most essential liberty, without which no man can be truly free: the liberty to own slaves.


    But honouring those who died valiantly but unsuccessfully defending their Southern homeland from the Yankee invaders is NOT what separates the Tea Republicans (60%) from the mainstream Republicans (40%).

    Except that elected members of the Republican party HAVE actually adopted the confederate flag, while the Democrats never adopted the hammer and sickle. (If you confuse Democrats with Socialists, you need to brush up on your real-world history.) The tea party folks planted a confederate flag at the White House. I can’t conceive of that happening under Bush, Clinton, or anyone except the first black president.

    Except there are quite a few Democrats that are members of the American Socialist party too, Democratic Socialist Party, and allied groups that run and are in Congress as Democrats elected on that ticket.

    One of my state’s represenatives runs as a Democrat and is the co-Chair of the American Socialist Party, Raul Grijalva, to give you an example of a Socialist in the Democrat party and in office.

    No, the Republican party has not adopted the Confederate flag either. But, do feel free to show some credible sources that contradict that claim or support it.

    The TEA Party is not the Republican party either.

    I believed the democrat symbol in the south was the white hood and a rope. If memory serves me right. And if I remember was not one of their senior Senator a Grand Dragon of the KKK?

    That’s always been the Liberal problem. Lack of U.S. History. Who freed the slaves? Republicans. What party was really behind slavery? Democrats. Try reading from all sources people, before the brainwashing info from your pacifist cohorts.

    Don’t forget why the 1860s Republicans did it! To level the playing field between North, had to pay their help and the South, didn’t have to pay the help. Today’s republicans are very different from the 1860s Republican.

    Also, today’s republicans are working on returning to the time before 1860, evidence is in the huge transference of wealth to the 1% from the rest of us. bush & cheney should be known for that, it is/was their most successful program.

    Quite right, and the political parties haven’t changed ONE IOTA in the past 50 years. They are still EXACTLY the same as they were in 1860.

    Hmmmmm! Which party is rushing to disenfranchise minority voters, in which states? Well, the phants can look in the mirror and lie to themselves, but it’s not fooling the rest of us!
