Re: “Reader: I'm fed up with the hate being spewed at the symbols of our history

The South-hating trolls are out here to dispute those of us who believe what the vast majority know, and have known fo r150 years. "Losers"? I've bet you say that to Native Americans and those who Remember the Alamo and Goliad/La Bahia, for two examples. The brave honor the brave. As to what the Confederate Battle Flag symbolizes, Union General Joshua Chamberlain (the guy portrayed by Jeff Daniels in Gettysburg) said later in life, "The sight of the Confederate Battle Flag always reminded me of the immense bravery of the men who served under it." Chamberlain paid tribute to his foe at Appomattox. This viewpoint is dismissed by those who want to attack the memory of men who served to protect their homes and families. The CBF is a soldiers flag - the naysayers are happy to learn hate and disrespect of American veterans, but not respect and honor - and this reveals them. I do not allow serial murderers to determine my opinions of things, nor race agitators who need fundraising dollars no matter whom it hurts, nor politicians without any genuine statesmanship skills who have more genuine principles and policies upon which to campaign. No Confederate was ever tried for treason by those against whom they fought - and now persons 150 years later hurl names? Puh-leeze. Its people who want to debase real history, and those spreading "offense" as a reason to do something (amusing after a century of Leftism) who are the threat to our country.
