Five for stupid.

Well you see
the Confederacy subjugated millions of innocent human beings to a lifetime of brutal, degrading, unpaid, involuntary labor from birth for no crime greater than being born black. they also declared war on half of America and killed millions of innocent people.
but rap music uses words like ni*ger and bitc* and cuntsmash*r
so this is an intelligent comparison
The link isn't working for me, but the argument I would have made is that hip hop is the soundtrack to the sort of ruthless capitalist greed that turned human misery into a thriving business. It would have been a bit of a shaky argument, but it's impossible to deny hip hop's deep-rooted celebration of materialism, which makes it very compatible with the 'free-market' fetishism that right wingers like Hannity engage in.

have you ever watched hannity
you're assuming his arguments are more complex than smirking as he eats a bald eagle, live and raw

Wow what a tool.
I did find it interesting he brought up Walmart, the same company that refused to put Marilyn Manson on its CD shelves because, you know, Family Values.

Hannity is one of those guys I'd really like to drop a cinder block on from a 10 story building.

Well, they ARE both terrible things that should have gone away years ago...

I think the swastika flag should be illegal here. It's illegal in Germany. Am I alone in this? I don't normally think anything should be illegal if it doesn't hurt anyone, but I push for this because it is the ultimate symbol of what our country had to fight against, of our greatest enemy in all history, and technically it can be equated with treason.
Mainly I just want to piss off Neo Nazis, though. Fuck them. Fuck the Confederate flag. Fuck the swastika, they mean the same thing.
15th, imagine the Moon of Endor populated with hairy tribes of barbarians who practice primitive religion and ritual sacrifice of strangers, but who aren't Ewoks.
Germany has more white supremacists than a Ted Nugent concert (they are a tiny ass country with as many mighty whitey groups as America, like it's some kind of competition), if they still had flags it would be easier for others to protect themselves. Fascists who can operate without symbols are a horrific thought, because it isn't 'Merican.
That and Americans love burning flags we don't like, why take away the most fun ones to burn? Seriously, burn a swastika, it's cathartic. Also, capture the flag is more fun when it's a flag the other side is attached to for dumb reasons. Also, desecration of flags. So much great shit can be done with other peoples' bigot flags. Man, I want to go burn some flags now... My point is, humans are programmed by rhetoric in a unique way completely outside the animal kingdom. You can destroy a national identity by destroying its flags in front of it and we need that sweet seductive power, because nnnnnngggggg.
Not like Ewoks at all.
I'm not really into Star Trek, so I don't get the reference, but that's a great point. Burning a Swastika has to be wonderful - I gotta try it. Let assholes have their symbols, it can be their yellow star.
