    A trivial search would reveal that this video is, per its creator, comedy / satire.

    I would not have done what she did. I wonder if it was a set up, though. Another BLM supporter who just "happened" to be walking down the street and confronted, perhaps. Seems just a bit off to me.

    The problem is that the very worst parody or satire or whatever is not very far at all from the idiocy we've seen from the extreme fringe left.

    The world is a safer place now that the South no longer exists. There never were two sides in the civil war. History has just been cleaned up.

    It is dangerous to simplify and bury history. It is dangerous to stop people's voices. I don't know what (if anything) the confederate flag (or its image on a shirt or car) means to those who display it. However, the prevention of free speech (a voice) could promote worse effects.

    Yes, it's a complex symbol, composed of equal parts of pain, patriotism and racism.

    You keep painting "the left" as the most extreme voices (not just in this thread). That's not "the left" in any meaningful sense. You don't like being called a nazi or a racist despite them running rampant in the Republican party, right?

    Yes, toppling and defacing historical statues, removing historical films, negating history is a very promising future.
