Note that it's not me this time stating that there is a moral equivalency between the Confederate battle flag and the NAZI swastika, it's some of the folks that promote the flag itself.
As I've previously noted (for example in THIS posting):
I will add this slight caveat to the discussion though: I do think some organizations have taken the whole "ban the flag" thing a bit too far. For example, a cable channel refusing to play re-runs of the Dukes of Hazzard because of the rag flag on the roof the the "General Lee" is silly at best. It's just a television show. By that logic, no re-runs of Hogan Heroes should ever be shown. What's more, I don't want to see the flag totally banned; heck, it's a good way to identify the latent and overt racists out there, and as long as society actually acknowledges what the flag stands for, my concerns are met.
