Speaking as a Republican and a conservative, I feel that banning the Confederate flag is paramount to denying what Americans did wrong in the past, and shows no respect for those in the service of the United States military, and the Confederate military who gave thier lives so that America could overcome this part of its past.
Regardless rebel or not, they are American and deserve our respect as a nation. The Confederate flag is a symbol. A symbol of what we went through as a nation to become the great country that we are today. Many fail to see that that’s what they’re denying when trying to ban the flag.
What it boils down to is simple: flags don’t kill people. People kill people. Why do we kill each other? Well, there’s philosophical and scientific sides, but this post isn’t about that.
God Bless America.
