A black Mississippi citizen is taking his case against the Confederate-
themed state flag to the U.S. Supreme Court.

Carlos Moore says lower courts incorrectly rejected his argument that the
flag harms him by violating the Constitution's equal-protection guarantee.

Mississippi is the last state with a flag featuring the Confederate battle
emblem -- a red field topped by a tilted blue cross dotted with 13 white
stars. Supporters say it represents history. Mississippi has used the flag
since 1894, and voters kept it in 2001.

Moore calls it "state-sanctioned hate speech."

A federal district judge dismissed Moore's case, saying he lacked legal
standing to sue because he failed to show the emblem caused an
identifiable legal injury. An appeals court upheld that ruling.

Donald J. Trump, 304 electoral votes to 227, defeated compulsive liar in
denial Hillary Rodham Clinton on December 19th, 2016. The clown car
parade of the democrat party has run out of gas.

Congratulations President Trump. Thank you for ending the disaster of the
Obama presidency.

Under Barack Obama's leadership, the United States of America became the
The World According To Garp.

ObamaCare is a total 100% failure and no lie that can be put forth by its
supporters can dispute that.

Obama jobs, the result of ObamaCare. 12-15 working hours a week at minimum
wage, no benefits and the primary revenue stream for ObamaCare. It can't
be funded with money people don't have, yet liberals lie about how great
it is.

Obama increased total debt from $10 trillion to $20 trillion in the eight
years he was in office, and sold out heterosexuals for Hollywood queer
liberal democrat donors.

I can sue because the Rainbow flag was illuminated on the White House?

I can call the gay flag hate speech that is hating on white heterosexual
males? There's NO white in a rainbow...

If a gay flag and a NAZI flag or Black Liberation flags are NOT banned
from his house, then why would the Confederate flag be banned from a
public place?

Using his hate speech theory would require that the U.S. Stars and
Stripes flag which flew during slavery prior to the Civil War would have
to be banned as a hate flag and people burning it NOT be able to do that
because it represents hate to burn the flag that you are angry with, the
same as flying it represents hate. *Two sides of the same coin*

Democrats would then be required to make it illegal to burn the U.S.
flag on government/public property. That would turn over a Supreme Court
ruling on free speech... pitting the Democrats against free speech.

The confederacy never tried to Starve or otherwise commit mass killing
and commit genocide against blacks..... That was done by General
Sherman and todays Planned Parenthood.

In a twisted and odd way the Confederacy was trying to save the people
the NORTH was starving and burning out and after the civil war the NORTH
abandoned them to starve and die of disease and malnutrition. It was
the "Stars and Stripes" that did the most harm to the Southern blacks.

All be it slavery was a failed economic system and morally repugnant,
the only thing worse was to starve and kill the slaves, and history
tells us that was what the North did while flying a U.S. stars and
stripes flag.
