As for your opinion of the Confederate flag, I find that completely consistent with other people whose communist grandparents were given refuge in this country. I don't know what it is about Eastern Europeans coming to the US and feeling entitled to piss on American culture, I suspect it's their inherent feelings of inferiority as people who abandoned their own countries. There is a "liberal" Czech on another board who sounds exactly like you.
My comments on the Confederate flag don't involve my "pissing on American culture" so much as recognizing that some parts of it are going to be controversial. I personally am not offended by that flag, but I do know that many people are, and that some persons who fly it do so in order to be offensive, rather than to show pride in their ancestry. Note that I didn't say that I'd punish the troopie who flew that flag, but that I would ask him his intent, and I'd probably tell him to take it down so as to avoid an EO complaint, because in our PC culture, which liberals like you have imposed, his intent doesn't matter so much as the perception of insult by those who view it, and I'd personally like to make it to retirement without incident.
But, while we're talking about pissing on cultures, you are aware that there is a culture to the military that you've never hesitated to moisten, right? I guess that the culture that protects you isn't worth as much as the culture that you pretend to embrace when it's convenient for you.
