    What a huge political mistake. There are so many compassionate voters who love and adore the Confederate Flag. The Confederate flag is a symbol of the Confederacy. That is what it represents-not slavery, not racism as pandering Perry alleges. To millions of southerners, it is family heritage to them because their not to long ago ancestors fought and died for that flag and now Confederate flag loyalist are fuming mad. Perry committed political suicide today when he came out in opposition of a Confederate Flag license plate for Texans. Believe me, this will truely have consequences for Rick Perry on a massive scale. There is nothing wrong with the Confederate Flag at all and it is not racist. It is a symbol of our southern heritage, pride and traditions.

    How is he doing the right thing by opposing the Confederate Flag? I can guarantee you this, he just lost South Carolina with this flip flop. Perry is a politically correct coward.

    He opposes the flag of a foreign, and now defunct, country, and that's supposed to be a bad thing? I have to say that I'm surprised that the secessionist Perry would do that, then on the other hand I guess I'm really not. If he's going to ever convince people to vote him as President of our country he needs to make people forget that he wants to leave our country.

    Rick Perry is a symbol of race treason and political opportunism, a bottom dweller who licks the boots of Mexican invaders for a vote. I'm currently reading volume two of Shelby Foote's narrative of the Civil War. He describes an anti-negro rampage in New York City in 1863. The citizens were outraged that they were being conscripted to risk death fighting the South in order to free blacks. It was also rather hypocritical of Honest Abe to be emancipating southern negroes while northern negroes were still held as slaves.


    Quote:
    Initially intended to express anger at the draft, the protests turned ugly and degraded into "a virtual racial pogrom, with uncounted numbers of blacks murdered on the streets". The conditions in the city were such that Major General John E. Wool stated on July 16, "Martial law ought to be proclaimed, but I have not a sufficient force to enforce it."[6] The military suppressed the mob using artillery and fixed bayonets, but not before numerous buildings were ransacked or destroyed, including many homes and an orphanage for black children.
