So i am Curious where everyone stands on the Issue of Banning a Part of Amarican History because Some one is Butt hurt. the most i have heard out of this argument is that the flag is being banned because a few people got offended and possibly one or two got killed. has this country really fallen so far into politicly correctness that i now have to abandon my rights as a citizen because someone is mad at a warped incorrect version of history?
Now Civil war history as it was taught to me in 2001- 2009 in arizona and kentucky account the Civil war was the result of a milder form of taxation without representation. Not to be confused with the Revolutionary war between GB and the Colonies where the colonies had NO representation in british monarchy, but the fact that representation in congress was based on the national Census of population by state. the southern states by population were far larger than the northern states due to the slave population on the plantations but were only given representation based on the white population because the Union government did not reconise slaves as humans but were simply property in the sense as livestock. when the south brought up a vote to include the slaves as part of the human population of their state the northern gov. said no that slaves were not people but property due to this the south broke off from the USA creating their own government based off the Same bill of rights and Constitution but refused to remain part of the union. now the South retreated back south of the mason dixon where they built up their own military and government system. the union felt threatened by this act and was the first to declare war. so when the fighting broke out the confederate Government made a declaration that any slave who shall raise arms in defense of the confederacy shall no longer be a slave but a paid worker and soldier. the black former slaves fought side by side with confederate soldiers in battle UNLIKE the union who still did not allow blacks in the millitary. upon hearing of this declaration lincoln made his own declaration to cover his ass freeing ALL slaves north and south to make it seem like the union were the good guys and the rest is history. However i heard a quote before that History is written by the victor since the union won the war the union re wrote and masked the entire cause of the war behind bigotry and slavery where as the true origins of the war were based on political reasons and human rights.
now to the matter at hand the reasoning i heard about the "rebel flag" being banned and removed from everywhere was due to racisim and killings but my argument is that Old glory the USA flag is stained with far more blood, inocent deaths, racisim and in-equallity as the confederate flag. the USA born the ideals of slavery of african's the confederates were formed after the fact and mearly adopted the culture of the Union that existed far before it had so why is it that the confederate flag gets the repercussions of the sins of Old glory while it stands tall as a symbol of freedom of opression where as the confederate flag was born of the shadow of old glory in attempts of breaking free of opression and strife during a time in which America stood for slavery and opression?
