WATCH: Nikki Haley Defends The Confederate Flag In Interview With Glenn Beck

JakeThomas

Nikki Haley, the former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, told Glenn Beck that the confederacy was something to be proud of — that the flag is about "service, and sacrifice, and heritage".

Haley also said during the interview that the flag was honorable until Dylan Roof, a White Supremacist mass-murderer, ruined it.

I get that to a lot of Southerners that the Confederate flag represents Southern pride and heritage and that's all well and good, but to a whole other segment of the population, specifically African Americans find that it is a hateful symbol of the slavery that their ancestors had to endure. I agree that Hollywood and the media has only perpetuated that image. But I just had a very disturbing visit to a public business in my hometown in Ohio (well above the Mason-Dixon line!) that had the Confederate flag hanging on the wall with a NOOSE hanging from the ceiling directly in front of it!! What does that say? I complained to the mayor of the village who told me if he hadn't spoken to the police department about it, but because it's inside the building, they can't do anything about it. I posted a comment about it on my hometown Facebook page and while most were shocked and appalled, there were a lot of people that kept telling me to just not go into the business or to F**** off! Seriously!? What is wrong with these people??? They aren't even from the south, yet they are defending that flag as well as the freakin' noose! I had one guy tell me, it's just a piece of rope! That they used to hang horse thieves, etc. Yes, that was and in some places still is a form of capital punishment especially in the wild west, but you can't convince me for one second that the noose hanging next to the Confederate flag says anything other than lynching!!

Imagine if post-WWII Germany proclaimed to the world: "Okay, anti-Semitism is wrong ... but you can't expect us to take down all of our swastika flags, right?"

...In Germany even performing the Nazi salute will get you arrested and fined, if not a punch in the nose from a citizen or two.

Note: At least 33+ % of voting Americans are out of their f...king minds. Depressing yes, but it is what it is and makes it hard to be surprised by anything anymore.

Funny how few ppl actually know what they are talking about let alone open a book. Slavery wasn't even an issue during the civil war until the last year. Yes the confederate flag is a symbol of the loosing side in the civil war. But lets look at what started the war the south was full of cotton the north factories that used the cotton. Ppl in the north white ppl btw wanted to make more money so by making cotton scares or killing for it ensured the north could demand more money. Oh the poor slaves those poor well fed sheltered sometimes educated ppl with medical care....you want to give credence to the ppl who have been through hell take a good long look at the Irish even now they fight for an independent country the Irish were indentured servants sound better than slave except its not a slave is taken care of by their masters I won't say all were great I'm not willing to believer there wasn't some major sob plantation owner. The slaves paid their masters with work and in return received food shelter medicine education ..indentured servant means you owe a debt you can work it off but you rack up another bill working for the same sob that runs the plantation..

I wish the AA community can read their own history and stop whining white ppl used to own them it was their own ppl that sold them
