Nikki Haley said Confederate flag was 'hijacked' by mass murderer Dylan Roof, ignoring its racist heritage, saying people saw it positively. Is that accurate?

By Don Lee I agree with her. The Civil War was not about slavery anymore then WWII was about being against Fascism or WWI was to make the world safe for democracy. The 4 anglo cultures were destined to have a conflict over controlling lands in the west.

By William Dykeman boy where did you get all that crap? look the west isnt perfect, it did not have to be but the result of ww1 was the values of democracy prevailed, ww2 the values of democracy prevailed over fascism and we stood up to communims whcih we definetely defeated, you ask any credible historian and they wll tell you the civl war 100% about slavery and nothing else the only idots that advocate for an alteernative narrative are pathetic rascists who wont admit how morally bamnkrupt their culture was and quite frankly still is, i have researched this for years, even conservatives admit the civil war was about slavery, even THYE admited it if you look at the writings and speeches of the people who lead the treasonous sessesion? thye say over and over we are fightng to presere the institution of slavery. they said it over and over and it s there in the historical record its a fact.. and anyone who disputs this is a neo confederate illiterate.. this is all part of the american culture of anti intellectualism where baseless conspiracy rubbish is put on the same level as accepted historical fact.. its a fact.. saying otherwise is like claiming the world isnt round or that gravity inst real.. only a fool would even try to argue what you are arguing it has been rprovne false time and again.. domnt beleive me.. listen to dennis prager and thse conservatives https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pcy7qV-BGF4&t=43s this is fact not up to discussion the south is stil racist in their denial ... i can site a millon credible historians to prove slavery was all the civil war was about ther eis not one credible historian that disputes this it is the equivalent of holocaust denial

by anon-11bb We were attacked by Imperial Japan who were fighting our Fascist allies in China. Fascism has a lot to do with land reform, the lands of the Monarchs were fiefdoms, much like you leftist serfs who love overtaxation...We didn't fight to stop land reforms, we ourselves had land reforms from the British monarchy here.You commies are losers..

by anon-11bb The emancipation proclamation was written to keep Britain out of the war. Slavery in Britain ended by buying back slaves which is the decent non Marxist thing to do.
