While people are so busy clap-clapping for South Carolina's Republican governor, who finally and quite reluctantly called for the removal of the Confederate flag from the state capitol, they might want to take a brief intermission to note just how reluctant Nikki Haley is
"It wasn't about slavery"
Piss off, redneck.
Conservatives respond without holding back concerning the victims of cop on black crime and the subsequent protests of those crimes, calling everyone involved thugs and worse but think it is beyond the pale (no pun intended) to offend the sensibilities of those delicate souls who have decided, despite all evidence to the contrary, that the history that rag represents is somehow noble.. Fuck 'em.
Now that we've settled that, could we return to a discussion of the utter stupidity that any attempts to keep guns out of the hands of the Dylann Roof's of this world cannot be tolerated because it would affect those who believe as Dylann Roof does but haven't pulled the trigger yet?
And then burn the rag.
They'll restore it, of course, claiming the end of democracy if anarchy is allowed to rule, but then they'll have to put guards on it to prevent that from happening again, and we'll have the image of armed guards paid by the state protecting the fucker from American citizens.

Hey, who'd we beat in the Spanish-American War? Don't forget them.
My eyes! The bleach! Quick!
Which happens every time there's a shooting. The conservatards were probably thrilled when everyone focused on the confederate rag. It'd be real hard to spin this one as violent video games, Hollywood movies, heavy-metal music, or homosexuality. (Actually, I don't think they've ever tried to blame gay culture for one of these shootings, but, give them time.)
thanks for clarifying that.
"But weaseling is important to learn--it's what separates us from the animals, except the weasel"

or like "Tin soldiers and Nixon's coming..."
Ashes are good for growing things, when mixed with nice soil.
Pete "Maverick" Mitchell libel!
Can it be composted?
Nikki does not want to violate the law by taking down their symbol of slave owning traitors. She is afraid of being impeached for not being a traitor.
As a german, I can only applaud the creative re-combination of existing words to form new ones. It's good, wholesome fun for the whole Volkfamily!
