    And, since slavery was the single most important cause of the war a flag representing slavery would seem essential in a museum. The history of the flag and its meaning is being destroyed by banning it.

    So wouldn't you be the one seeking to control society by defending the erasing of history of that dumb flag?
    You are the one who wants to erase the history of slavery by banning a flag that represents that slavery.

    You want to destroy the freedom of museums to display such symbols.

    Again, should the swastika be banned in WWII or Holocaust museums? Or, the entire U. S.?

    because it's a government flag, but burning a rainbow flag is NOT covered by the 1st Amendment.............why?
    The war on crime, war on drugs, war on terror, and now the war on opiods.............there's a reason they call it a war. So you idiots will easily accept the collateral damage of innocents

    Technically, you can burn a cross in a public space with the right permits. Granted, getting permission from a local government to do that is very unlikely for obvious reasons.

    Hate crimes are easier to determine when the action being done is on someone's private property or in other expressions of a personal threat.

    It's why the KKK is still allowed to have rallies, but they aren't allowed to burn a cross in someone's yard.

    If you bring up the topic of hate crimes, it requires specific conditions. Burning a symbol in and of itself is not a hate crime.

    Do you ever get tired of driving drunk.

    Hopefully you'll watch your wife scream for help after being trapped in a burning car caused by it being hit by a drunk driver. I doubt you'd care.
