Ann Coulter: Confederate Flag Debate ‘Completely Moronic’

Ann Coulter waded into the Confederate flag debate this morning on C-SPAN, calling the whole debate “completely moronic.”

She said that what’s happening is just “a litany of liberal talking points that make Republicans look bad,” and asked, “How about banning the Democratic Party?” Coulter repeatedly pointed to how Democrats were against civil rights for the longest time.

    I hear that ebay have banned it, though there seem to be plenty still on sale.

      New listings?

    Amazon, Ebay, Sears, etc have dropped Confederate flag items from their stores.. Florida, SC and Phoenix are “rethinking” their stance on this symbol of state’s rights and individual freedom.
    The states are FUBAR, and Canada is poised to overtake them in seconds.

    Next they will try to ban the American stars and strips flag because segregation occurred while under it.

    Not worry folks since Hamas, Muslim Brotherhood and ISIS flags can fly without a peep. It is great to see though that they are banning the Confederate flag, because we just know how dangerous it is. These vile idiots truly give me a tendency towards violence, an emotion I normally never experience.

    Any one for changing the flag of the State of Hawaii?
    They even got the Union Jack the right way up.

    Interesting op-ed essay in the National Post today (Wednesday June 24) on the Confederate flag. One tidbit I didn’t know was that the familiar Stars and Bars flag sold today was never the official flag of the CSA, but was the flag carried by the highly-admired CSA Army of Northern Virginia (led by Robert E. Lee). As students of the Civil War know, this army was the only really successful Confederate armies during the war, wining a number of large battles. The other smaller Confederate armies tended to lose battles with sad regularity. So the familiar Stars and Bars flag, I think, stands for Southern pride in doing something successful.

    Having said that, there are a lot of ultra-radical-rightist types who wear and fly the Confederate battle flag. I come from a Southern family on my father’s side (Murrell’s Inlet in South Carolina is linked to my family), and as a child I heard noble Civil War tales from that side of the family. At any rate, way back in the late 1980s I was walking down Younge street in Toronto, when a group of five or six wiry, muscular neo-Nazi toughs were walking in the opposite direction. They were heavily tattooed, sported Nazi regalia, and had Confederate flag insignia on their t-shirts. There were plenty of non-whites waling about, and they gave this group a wide berth.. In my head I thought that that Confederate flag use insulted my forbearers — but needless to say I did not engage these toughs on the matter (I would have been beaten up!).

    There are two sides of the Confederate battle flag — Southern pride and radical rightist extremism — unfortunately.
