It would have been useful for you to actually read previous posts prior to responding. All of your 'points' have been addressed previously, either directly or indirectly. Three word summary: You're mostly wrong.

A bunch of people who don't actually know what they're talking about -- not having read any primary sources -- defending the confederate flag as an iconic symbol of states' rights (except, of course, the rights of opposing states to do something different).



I don't see any post here that is defending the confederate flag as an iconic symbol of states' rights..... Sure, that concept is out there, but I don't see it being expressed in this thread.

This reminds me of the time I talked to a really old person. He said he wanted to sell me a bridge for a great price.

Haha. This thread reminds me of that time a bunch of people on the internet made unsubstantiated claims that they knew better than those gosh-darn "Experts." You don't need to spend years researching primary sources to be a "capital-H Historian," just say things on the internet about how the victors write history and somebody really old told you the truth.

edit: just realized how old this thread is. whoops.

Do you mean that you are now declaring yourself the thread historian, expert on everything that has gone on in this thread?
