Who cares who flies it? Itís a symbol of freedom, rebellion against tyranny. It has nothing to do with race.

Who cares what these cretins think. I wore my "Dont Tread on Me" t-shirt until it was barely readable so just ordered two new ones.
I'll make an effort to wear it even more now. Antagonizing Democrats is therapeutic.

I didnt know that was up for debate. I mean the Constitution didnt even define black people as citizens. Do you not consider that racist ?

That all changed with the 14th Amendment in 1868 that has been standing for almost 150 years now......

We are talking about a flag - one that was flown during the Revolution in one form or another. Not every damn thing that existed in 1775 was related to slavery.

This is 100%, but your argument was about "everything", which means you are included our flawed Constitution that allowed slavery, and our founding fathers who were slave owners.

I get i shouldnt take your post literally, but you set yourself up man, LOL

Oh, poor baby. Virtue Signal somewhere else. That flag represents freedom. Yet you hate freedom, and now want oppression. Too bad, we aren't allowing your progressive oppression.

Flying the Gadsden flag is sort of like putting up a sign that says "Gun Goober lives here."

All races have racists. There is a lot of racism against whites today, and the SJW crowd/media/entertainment industry glosses over or even actively participates in it. What is your point?
