Occidental College students vandalize 911 memorial - CNN.com



We are living in a trigger-filled world.
Now the incident at Occidental College, that was wrong. I am against vandalizing a 9/11 memorial.

My opinion about the Confederate flag, well, this is what I say. If I Confederate flag gets destroyed, I have no feelings of anger if it happens. My stance is set in stone. I find the Confederate flag a deplorable flag. It has no place is modern American society, except maybe in museums. The U.S. flag has a place in modern American society because this is the USA, NOT THE CSA.

If the situation at Occidental really happened as described above, those students need an adult to pull them aside and talk to them. Many, Many, people of color died or were injured in the 9/11 attacks.

Those students who did that to a 9-11 memorial need to be expelled.

Sir, Your opinion is the most painfully, obvious, and patriotic reasoning . +100

I do what I can. If it came between having a Confederate flag flown and a USA flag flown, that USA flag will be flown first, foremost, and to the exclusion to the Confederate flag.

Jolly Roger goes up. At least it's connected to something more reputable, the Pittsburgh Pirates. I will never fly the Confederate flag, period.

Flags I despise: Confederate flag, Nazi flag

So you endorse all the raping, pillaging, and enslavement performed by pirates in the past as well as today?

Will you engage in "Talk Like A Pirate Day" this Monday in tribute to those who lost their freedoms to pirates?

Did Disney do enough whitewashing of their image for you to accept their atrocities?
