And the hypersensitivity of people these days is just ridiculous - especially when they aren't even in the group being "insulted". I find myself just not making jokes and making the most banal conversation now because of fear of pissing off an idiot and getting screamed at or shot. For example, back when that whole bullshit of those pizza place people not wanting to serve gay people, I didn't think it was a big deal - I DIDN'T say it was right, btw. But fucking A, I got screamed at by a straight person for being a bigot, and god forbid when I posted something like that on Reddit, I got voted down into oblivion. That couldn't have possibly have been from gay people because they are a very very very small minority. It was all sanctimonious bullies.

And I think that is where a lot of this PC backlash is originating from: sanctimonious bullies.

Self-aware much?

The flag we're talking about was created to boost morale of the soldiers, and was only for use in battle.

But the soldiers were fighting to preserve a system of hatred, slavery, bigotry, and treason. Many of my ancestors among them. Thankfully, they lost. I don't honor the cause of my ancestors, and I am flabbergasted that anybody would.

Not to get in the way of a good rant, but Amazon does not appear to sell Nazi flags:

Nor does Walmart:

I'm not sure what a "Communist" flag is. I never knew Communism was a country.

Wow, saying the confederate flag means slavery, hatred, bigotry and treason and it gets a +5 Insightful?


Maybe the reason they fly the flag is to respect their ancestors who fought and died for what they believe in.

I think the whole point here is that their ancestors believed in slavery, hatred, bigotry and treason.

what if your OS writes program memory to unencyphered swap?

Luckily, encrypting the swap partition on Linux is trivially easy:

Only an idiot would encrypt their hard drives and not their swap partition.

Excessive login or logout messages are a sure sign of senility.
