Re: Now The Symbol Of New Orleans Is Considered Racist

Why is this country trying to demolish individualism? It seems like we're being pushed into believing everything and everyone is equal. I fear that we're being turned into mindless drones where everything is normal and if you oppose it then you're the "weird one." Orwell is becoming less and less of a fiction writer: War is peace. Freedom is slavery. Ignorance is strength.

Because INDIVIDUALS don't have to be attached to the teet of government to survive.

If you're dependent in some way (and hell with Obamacare we all are whether we want to be or not), you better vote right to keep the right sugar daddy in power, handing out the scraps from his table.


Too many people gave up freedom and a self-reliant life for a so-called guaranteed (and very meager), government-funded exisitance...

The "offended party" aka Black people aren't talking about this or sharing this. I've only seen the article posted by White people and never by a major news source. This won't gain any steam like I said before. Most people outside of Mississippi and Louisiana don't even know it's called a fleur-de-lis or anything about its origins. This is nothing like the Confederate flag. Don't fret.

Let me guess team "Owners" will be next! Cars have both master and slave cylinders in them, better ban the automobile while they're at it.

Y'all know the Fleur De Lis is the emblem for the Boy Scout of America too. Pretty sure there is enough support of that organization to make this a wash.

The Fleur de lis offensive...

I believe the continued Political Correctness attacks on virtually anything someone could find offensive to be worse...

I have CSA soldiers on both sides of my family with C.S.A. tombstones. I never really flew the Stars and Bars. And yes, I have learned some were slaveholders, some not. I can see how the Bars and stars is offensive, but the fleur de lis - COME ON

We might as well ban the CROSS. It was used to symbolize the crusades when fighting for Jerusalem and is on current flags and almost every protestant church in the U.S. SOMEONE may find it offensive, so we should remove ALL of them.

WHERE DOES IT STOP...

The CSA battle the "Army of Virginia" flag has become confrontational due to the usage by some groups. I wonder when the outrage will come when people in Louisiana realize several of the State National Guard armories are owned by the Daughters of the Confederacy (DoC) and leased by the State (i.e. - Funding the Organization). The Armory in Shreveport is owned by the DoC, and the history of Ft. Humbug goes back to the confederacy (and just happens to be the LAST Confederate fort to surrender). If I am not mistaken the Battalion flag contains streamers from the Civil War.

I believe, I may just go out and purchase a "Bonnie Blue" to fly.

Seck also believes it shouldn’t be taken down as it is now embraced as a symbol of unity.

Geez, learn some history, bro ... the French were all over the Great Lakes region and the Ontario/Quebec provinces during the 1600's - 1800's and the fleur-de-lis is a well known symbol that appears on many flags, monuments, buildings, et ... throughout.

Re: Now The Symbol Of New Orleans Is Considered Racist

How many generations of Native Americans were slaughtered under the Stars and Stripes?

How many years did slavery sit in the shadow of the Stars and Stripes?

For the gabillionth time, the South did not fight the civil war for SLAVERY. During the civil war, the North had SLAVES too. (I will not argue this point with anyone. Do some REAL research, other than movies)

The Klan has bastardized the Stars and Bars. They turned it into a symbol of hate.

I had family that faught for the South and the North. I pisses me off to see the KKK using a flag that my family faught under. It degrades what they did. It cheapen's what my family did when a picture of Hank Williams Jr or a 12 point buck or a large mouth bass is put on that flag.

Do I own a "Confederate" flag? No, I don't. But I should the right to own one and fly it if I want too.

I say instead of banning it; why not take ownership in it? Take it back from the KKK, intead of giving them power over it. Stop letting these so called leaders of our Nation divide us.

ps: If this offends you.... get over yourself.
