Well, I'm going to enlighten you on something. Democrats are more likely to pander to feminists, LGBT, and Blacks, in that order. Republicans are more likely to pander to White conservatives. In particular, there is an appeal among those who feel like they're being taken over by minorities and immigrants.

There must be a similar appeal for feminists, LGBT and Blacks?

Because you call them traitors. Not all, but certain BLM and certain Antifa burn flags and say they want to overthrow the US. And by the way both include white folks. I assume they are traitors too?

Just trying to establish your parameters in that regard.

I posted previously I have a relative who fought and died in the civil war and he considered the Confederates "rebels" and "traitors." Yet they were welcomed back after the war, those that lived, as Americans. They were no longer traitors. As long as they turned in their guns and said their oath, they were Americans. And their offspring fought and died for the USA in our many wars since: Spanish American war, WWI, WWII, Korea, Viet Nam, etc. et al.

I'm wondering why 150 years later they are traitors again.

Yes, and it has been mentioned. The same can be said of how there is an appeal for White conservatives for the Republican Party. However, it is only called pandering if it has to do with Blacks.

I am not going to waste time going back and forth with someone who isn't capable of thinking about the question I asked. If you can't name a White supremacists then you can't dialog.

Have a nice life.

But this discussion is about the Confederates and why we shouldn't have Confederate monuments. And that alone. I called them traitors because that is what they are. Wage war against one's own country, that is being a traitor. Flag burning, as despicable as it is, is protected in the Constitution. Waging war against the USA, however, is treason. Leaving the U.S. Army to fight for an enemy combatant (that is what Robert E. Lee did) is a treason offense.

I suspect you only brought up the two groups to deflect from why there is such a disdain for Confederates. If you want to talk about BLM and Antifa, a separate thread would suffice.

The point was one of hypocrisy: while democrats pander to blacks for votes, they love it when LGBT types gentrify black urban neighborhoods - thereby forcing blacks out of urban neighborhoods. A counter-point would be how the GOP does it, and by the way, I'm not so big on the establishment GOP these days. Maybe with immigration.
