Confederate flag taken down in South Carolina after 54 years

COLUMBIA, S.C. — For the first time since the civil rights movement, the Confederate flag was removed entirely from the South Carolina Statehouse, in a swift ceremony Friday before thousands of people who cheered as the Civil War-era banner was lowered from a 30-foot flagpole.


Well then all of America’s problems are solved. Let us speak of them no more.

    Finally, all our problems are solved.

    • That’s a relief.

      I can feel the healing beginning already. $50 says there’s no murders in Chicago this weekend.

    Let’s just never forget that the Democrats erected that flag in the first place and defended it for as long as it was politically expedient to do so … but then somewhere along the lines of recent history, the Democrats projected their racist past/present/future upon the Republicans, the party that was formed to defeat the racist Democrats.

    THAT’S how honourable Leftists/Democrats really are.

    When a flag is taken down it usually symbolizes that a nation has been taken over by another entity. South Carolina has been taken over by the forces of political correctness. In the 54 years it has been flown in the South Carolina Statehouse not one incident of slavery had occurred in America. They can’t make the argument of segregation either because it occurred in northern states as well and under the stars and stripes. The can’t say it was because it is a symbol used by the kkk and if that is the case then they will have to ban crosses since that is a symbol the kkk use to ABUSE and pervert its meaning. Once again emotion triumphs over facts and reason to the loss of many in the south who see the Confederate flag as a part of their cultural heritage.

      The Confederate flag was a battle standard during the Civil War. The KKK came predominately after the war instituted by Democrats. The two issues have nothing to do with each other.

        Another inconvenient truth.

        try telling cement head liberals that… impossible… this is Barry’s race war

    • Speaksvolumes

      Well they’ll eventually call for Old Glory to be taken down too for what it “represents”. Just you watch.

    Well I’m glad Obama Fuckwit finally, FINALLY earned his Nobel Prize.

    Saying it was flown from the “Statehouse” is a lie. It wasn’t flying from the Capitol building/Statehouse. It was on the hill the Capitol building is on at a war memorial to the state’s ACW dead paid for by their widows and orphans.

    Still, when it stops all the black shootings/killings in Chicago, Baltimore and Cincinnati, I’m sure it’s all be worth it.

    BTW, Bill Clinton signed into law the bill that flew the Battle Flag from Arkansas’s Statehouse.

    The CBC had a breaking news brief on this as it happened and the announcer cheered herself about how wonderful it was to see the racist symbol removed.

      And the bitch probably vacations in Cuba every year or two.

      • Gary

        True, she okay with Cuba that jailed gays with AIDS to hide them from her as to not upset the Tourists from CUPE and the NDP.
        Blacks aren’t allowed in the upper Government , plus that good old boy Ernesto Guevara is on record saying that he admired the White Christians that were inventive and productive to build great societies while the Blacks are lazy Nig**rs that are burdens where ever they live.

        But hey, it’s great being a Liberal progressive 2-faced fascist that metes out human rights and compassion to which groups they feel deserve it.

    • Alain

      Typical ignorant bimbo with no clue of what the flag represented.

      • Exile1981

        She’s just the product of a public education and leftist indoctrination.

  • Petey

    Why don’t they take off their gray uniforms, the damn traitors, and maybe replace them with a rainbow flag or something? Pathetic.

  • Xavier

    I heard they were hoisting a white flag in its place.

  • Xavier

    Pepsi’s next. Many blacks believe the government puts chemicals in it that make black men sterile. No I’m not making this up.

    • Minicapt

      … and Dr Pepper.

      .. not Pepsi.. something similar
      The Tuskegee Syphilis Experiment
      For forty years between 1932 and 1972, the U.S. Public Health Service
      (PHS) conducted an experiment on 399 black men in the late stages of syphilis.
      in 1972, news anchor Harry Reasoner described it as an experiment that
      “used human beings as laboratory animals in a long and inefficient study
      of how long it takes syphilis to kill someone.”
