Ben Carson and Confederate Flag

Dr. Ben Carson said that the Confederate flag should be displayed at NASCAR since it is private property.

Do you agree with Dr. Ben Carson?

I do not think that we have any right to not be offended, and as far as the evidence goes that seems to be the only substantiated "harm" involved in this scenario. That seems a rather trivial basis for restricting the private individuals' freedom of expression.

You do not feel that normalizing such imagery plays into the larger system of micro aggressions towards others like black Americans?

But to clarify, yes I agree NASCAR could use the flag if they wanted. I just draw the line at state/government sponsored use of the flag.

Actually, I think that it does but do not see any clear or direct harm to micro aggression itself (certainly nothing to merit censorship of free expression).

As do I.

What might you be upset with there Progressive ? Can one not fly the Confederate Flag on private property ?

Side: I Agree with Dr. Ben Carson

I agree that it can be flown on private property as far as the law is concerned. I also agree that that should be the law. However, I do not think they should display it; if only out of respect and basic decency.

When the Left starts censoring the many things that offend Conservatives, then we will talk.

The Left is the biggest bunch of hypocrites on this planet. They want to censor private businesses from expressing their beliefs, but when it comes to their Politial correct agendas, it is ok to offend Christians, or any people who do not agree with their views.

I wonder if the Left would want to censor private businesses from flying the Gay pride flags? Nah, that is pushing their PC agendas. HYPOCRITES!

Says the person who censors anything that offends him.

The Left is the biggest bunch of hypocrites on this planet.

Says the guy who censors everyone while decrying censorship.

As do you, just on different subjects.

but when it comes to their Politial correct agendas, it is ok to offend Christians, or any people who do not agree with their views.

That applies to literally everyone.

No, you are the one who wanted to censor those.

So you now have associated blacks as being racist by your statement. Is this a new thing that blacks are racist unless they agree with the Leftist agenda ?

Ad hominem attacks do not address the substance of the argument. Additionally, since when was racism incapable of being political?
