This might help some of you.

And it is all true because I researched it myself to see if it was. Low and behold it was.

But so many more myths aren't posted on this sight.

There are several people on MLW with more than a passing knowledge of the Civil War.

"It wasn't about slavery, it was about protecting states' rights! Like the right to, uh, keep slaves."

To those who are so fixated that may be the case, but I personally kept a photo of Admiral Doenitz (full uniform with Nazi insignia) on my desk and stateroom locker as a reminder of what I was doing as a naval officer. Anybody with a brain got it...and respected it.

You wanted to identify yourself as a hardcore loyalist to Der Führer?

Couldn't find a photo of, say, Charles Lockwood that he had to use that of a Nazi war criminal?

Donitz...and even many Allied commanders agreed...was a military man rather than one of the Himmler crowd. He was punished for conducting unrestricted submarine warfare. Something the Allies were quite familiar with themselves. He was indeed a Nazi, though. They all had to be to hold their commissions.

Rommel falls into this category,as well...

German military officer...Not necessarily a NAZI...

Same as Lee...Not a believer in the institution of slavery,but, infamously said he could not take up arms against his southern brethren...

I always thought the Confederate Battle flag was a naval flag?

It should be noted that the flag is square and not rectangular...

At Bull Run, a good number of Reb units sported blue uniforms. There was little in the way of conformity to any Reb Army...especially those out West.

As we all know there was conflict between the south and north in America that caused The Civil War. 150 years later many people across America still fly the Confederate flag today.

The topic here is it racist to fly the flag?

It's not necessarily racist or bigoted to fly it...

It is if one believes in what the underlying issues around the "States Rights" arguement and not the cotton/economic issue...

And more so Guderian, the father of air-land battle.

He was as ardent a Nazi as anyone in the high command.

Meh...the British appeaser support for Hitler and Nazism is no great secret, up to and including King George VI. Pretending to hate the symbols after the fact is a game in political correctness. The Confederate battle flag represents a place and time just like any other, including union jacks or the rising sun.

Which has what to do with your apparent affection for ardent Nazis?

Twaddle.

The Confederate battle flag represents a place and time just like any other, including union jacks or the rising sun.

And it carries historical baggage as a result.

Feel free to use it along with your snapshots of Nazis, but that really does say a metric tonne about your mindset.

I feel free to use whatever I wish without your consent, approval, or baggage. That's the whole point which escapes your narrow view and perspective for this topic, as always.

      So, the first leader to declare war on Hitler and Nazism is under fire with calls to change the name of Sir Winston Churchill Blvd. Thoughts?

      With all of the accusations of systemic racism, including the idea of unconscious bias, some companies are implementing affirmative action hiring policies that will aim to hire more minorities.  The CBC, for example, claims it will make sure at least 50% of its workforce are minorities.  Do you agree with affirmative action policies?

      A news conference was just held now on the news of Indigenous people declaring war on us all for the "not guilty" verdict of Gerald Stanley. See  http://thestarphoenix.com/news/local-news/gerald-stanley-trial-jury-delivers-not-guilty-verdict-in-murder-of-colten-boushie
      and present news coverage tonight (10:45 Global news and likely on CBC network now). 
      I've always understood our government's stance of "Mutliculturalism" (TM) to represent collective forms of National Socialists and NOT diversity of all peoples. In the need for the establishment of this country's faltering power to preserve their own Nationalistic 'catholic' origins here, Pierre Trudeau set up a Constitution that locked in his favored religion and culture but had to include token means to the very Aboriginal tribes his (not my) relatives thought of the Natives when they abused them through various policies of their own ancestors. 
      I believe the means of 'favoring' the Aboriginals the WAY we have in this country today goes along with the similar movements to grant women and girls retribution against the problems ...that again....his own kind of family and thinkers created. Yet to do so means to TRANSFER the burden to all people and especially to those very stereotypical thinking memes against SCAPEGOATS of the whole rather than take on the burden of debt that is due against the churches and wealthy establishment of the Eastern Canadian Catholic and Anglican 'loyalists' that served to go against the democratic changes of the Enlightenment when the U.S. was being formed. 
      My anger here is to what this conference of "Nations" (Aboriginal Nationalists) are challenging of many across the nation now against the trial that "let a guilty man free" today. [I don't hold any opinion for Gerald Stanley's guilt nor innocence, only the FACT that he's been tried by a jury of his peers as we are all expected a right here to.] The rise of Nationalism by the Natives now is something that I fear is going to harm us all in kind to all the other segregate empowered groups being fostered by Mutliculturalism. [Remember, the Nazis in Germany is precisely a motion of "Indigenous" Germans demanding SEGREGATE social rights as 'distinct' special peoples!.]
      History is not only repeating itself,...it is getting amplified for the sake of the selfish arrogance and ignorance of those supporting SEGREGATE laws for SPECIFIC people as though they are above and beyond reproach. 
      I was born on this EARTH and so am equally "Aboriginal" here. I also have NOT gained any of the wealth nor benefits of anyone here, including no favor to high paying jobs that I get stereotyped as having gained from. I am a "FLOATER" when it comes to the fact that I don't own shit nor any privileged "culture" that I supposedly OWN from some ancestors of mine. This is MY land as much as any others here. And I'm getting tired of this EMPOWERMENT to National Socialism in the name of "liberalism" of a left that is actually the collective right-wingers AVENGING W.A.S.P.s that I also DO NOT SUPPORT!!
      Thank you Trudeau and all you who support SEGREGATIONIST, racist and sexist laws here. Thank you for the inevitable wars that YOU are actually fostering of the very people you claim to be pitying. 
       
      P.S. "Person Kind" comes from the meaning "per son" (for each SON); So if you were intending to evade any sexist overtones of the word "Mankind" you think it has, Justine, think again. [This is a dig to his comment the other day correcting some girl who used this.]

      The author of this article states this succinctly,   and I agree.  These books hilight the evils of racism,  and banning them due to their use of racial slurs is counter productive. 
      ANY thoughts?
