    I looked through. Apparently Diesel said that the guy deserves to have his house burnt down.

    Of course he has the right to fly that flag and be an asshole towards the Jews and the Holocaust.

    Yes, he does. Free speech means tolerating that which we disagree with. It is not a green light to commit a crime and burn down a house.

    Sick.

    That flag is not flying on a house. Mr. Stupidy doopy do da... Seriously. You desperately wanted to try to find some rich idiot flying the flag and couldn't so you post someplace that flies a Virginia Battle Flag on a flag pole (likely one of the states that used it as a state flag back in the day, from back in the day).

    Reality is creeping into your brain slowly. You couldn't find a house with a Nazi flag that didn't look like it belonged to welfare recipients because folks who fly that flag are welfare recipients. So instead you had to find a battle flag and pretend it was the same thing, even though it clearly wasn't.

    Again. The "Confederate flag" is a Virginia Battle flag. Back in the day Mississippi literally used it as their state flag though, then changed it to a smaller field on the flag more recently, and I believe are changing it once again (or have already, I'm not sure) to remove it altogether. My guess is he found an old picture of a neighborhood in that state flying their state flag, as states are wont to do, and just assumed that the "Confederate Flag" was the same thing as the Nazi Flag in the OP. While we now associate the battle flag with "the Confederate Flag" the Confederate states never used that flag for the Confederate States...

    Anyway, the two things are conflated in his stupid post, and are not an example of any house flying a Nazi flag in a "rich neighborhood"...

    Nobody said it was "okay" for that to happen, we just predict it to be more likely to happen to this idiot than others. Being stupid shouldn't be a death penalty, but in this case it just may make him believe he's really "unlucky" or he may actually understand why people might dislike him and like I said is willing to put his family in danger to make his point....

    Along with several others on this thread, do you find it acceptable to burn a house down because it's flying a flag you don't like?

    True. Here in America though we dont get to burn down somebody elses home because we dont like their politics. If we did everyone would end up homeless...
