confederate-flag-clinton-gore-buttonA shopper perusing the merchandise at the Redwood Country Flea Market was so offended by a vendor selling Confederate and Nazi historical memorabilia, the person actually called 911.

Wallingford, Connecticut police were dispatched to the flea market to investigate.

The police chief William Wright tells News 8 “the reason no one was arrested was because the items were being sold on private property” — not to mention no laws were broken.

    Screw the PC…ASSHO//…this is to much like HITLER GERMANY…one group at a time…why do you think we have Fema camps, mass graves, stock piles of ammo, and government take over your life. What needs and should be done is to ARREST THE FRAUD IN OUR W.H. FOR HIGH TREASON AND TAKE AMERCIA BACK…ENOUGH IS ENOUGH FOR BARRY MADNESS ON THE U.S.A..

    I would like to purchase several dozen of these flags so I can give them to some of my good friends for display on personnel property. I use to have one but it eventually wore out, completely. Old Dixie will never die.


    So why did the cops dispatch a car to see what they already knew,,,NO LAWS WERE BROKEN……and why did they not charge the whiner who called a fee to reimburse the tax payers…?

    How stupid can you get the confederate flag has not been outlawed, it is just not flying over federal buildings. Any person in America can fly the confederate flag on their property if they so want to. I hope that that flea market puts the confederate flag In a prominent place so all can see. meh

    • Ace Dragon

      finally a person with an education of the law. but don’t you think it’s sick to relocate there graves?

    • There are a group of young Monkey looking humans that are going around with a Flag Challenge now, to rip Confederate Flags from private property! If you are in a state that allows it, if you catch one of these humans that resemble chimps, please put them out of their misery, which is your right as a property owner. I refuse to call these kind of fecal worms Blacks because Black people are good, decent hardworking folks that do not get involved in immature nonsense such as this, only the deranged ones! Come to my property and try to rip my flag down and you will be carried off in a body bag!

        amen brother

      • Terry Rushing

        I was once young, impressionable and, for the most part, easily led and as such I really did some dumb stuff. My point is, that people who would do this sort of thing quite possible are acting on immaturity and impulse and haven’t the life experiences to evaluate the possible consequences of their bravado. Finally, my own life experiences tell me that I would not want the burden of knowing that I took a life over a non life threatening event.

        • Naw, a good pistol whipping should make them wake up, lol! Knock some sense into their ignorant, uneducated heads.

  • teaman

    I am offended by everything these perverted liberal communist driven idiots are doing to our country. How about you? There is nothing offensive about the Confederate Flag and if people actually new history, they would agree. It makes one rather STUPID to hate something they truly do not understand. Here is a history lesion for you;

    RACE BAITERS: Don’t Want You To Know This About Black History

    Talking heads fill our TV screens as they continue to enumerate the offenses
    white Americans have committed from slavery to Jim Crow.

    a false narrative has been embedded in the minds of Americans. The
    nation is suffering from false memory syndrome. Our ancestors, we
    believe, raided peaceful African villages, bopped innocent Africans
    on the head, then led them in chains to slave ships. Once in America
    we imagine wealthy white plantation owners forcing hordes of black
    slaves to pick cotton in the hot summer sun twelve months out of the

    The narrative is so well ingrained in our thinking that it seems almost sacrilegious to question it.

    Nonetheless, facts are stubborn and data takes precedence over anecdotes.

    Here are thirteen things most Americans don’t know about black history.

    1. America’s first black military officers served the Confederacy.

    In 1861 about 1,500 free blacks in New Orleans answered Gov. Thomas
    Overton Moore’s call to serve the Confederate army. The new
    enlistees were garnered at a meeting called by ten prominent black
    residents. About 2,000 blacks attended the meeting on April 22,
    located at the Catholic Institute. The new regiment was formed May 2.

    Considering there were
    about 10,000 free blacks of both genders and all ages living in the
    Louisiana in 1861, the large number of black enlistees speaks to
    the loyalty of blacks to the Confederacy. It can be estimated that
    as many as half of all free black males between the ages of 15 and
    50 enlisted.

    The governor appointed
    three white officers to oversee the regiment. They were accompanied
    by three black officers appointed from the regiment. These became
    the first black military officers in American history.

    2. The first legally recognized slave owner in American history was black.

    Anthony Johnson came to
    the American colonies in August, 1619 as an indentured servant. In
    1623 Johnson had completed his indenture and was recognized as a
    free negro. In 1651 he acquired 250 acres of land in Virginia,
    later adding another 250 acres; a sizable holding at the time.

    John Casor, a black
    indentured servant employed by Johnson, became what historians have
    long considered to be America’s first slave. His enslavement
    resulted from a legal dispute between Johnson and Robert Parker.
    Parker was a white colonist who employed Casor while Casor was
    still indentured to Johnson. Johnson sued Parker in Northampton
    Court in 1654. The court upheld Johnson’s right to hold Casor as
    a slave on March 8, 1655. The court found:

    The court
    seriously consideringe and maturely weighing the premisses, doe
    fynde that the saide Mr. Robert Parker most unjustly keepeth the
    said Negro from Anthony Johnson his master … It is therefore the
    Judgement of the Court and ordered That the said John Casor Negro
    forthwith returne unto the service of the said master Anthony
    Johnson, And that Mr. Robert Parker make payment of all charges in
    the suit.

    Five years later, in 1670,
    the colonial assembly passed legislation permitting blacks and
    Indians the right to own slaves of their own race, but prohibiting
    them from owning White slaves.

    (In July, 2012, supporters
    of Barack Obama considered it politically advantageous to advance
    the notion that John Punch was the first slave of African descent
    in the American colonies. Obama is suspected of being a descendant
    of Punch through Obama’s maternal lineage.)

    3. Free blacks commonly owned black slaves in the antebellum South.

    Henry Louis Gates of the White House “Beer Summit” fame said, “This is the dirtiest secret in African American history. A surprisingly high percentage
    of free Negros in the South owned slaves themselves.” [Source]

    There were thousands of black slave owners in the South.

    In 1830 there
    were 3,775 such slaveholders in the South who owned 12,740 black
    slaves, with 80% of them located in Louisiana, South Carolina,
    Virginia, and Maryland. There were economic differences between
    free blacks of the Upper South and Deep South, with the latter
    fewer in number, but wealthier and typically of mixed race. Half of
    the black slaveholders lived in cities rather than the countryside,
    with most in New Orleans and Charleston.

    To write extensively about blacks who owned slaves in the antebellum South would require a library of full volumes. Black slave owners: free Black slave masters in South Carolina, 1790-1860 by Larry Koger is one such volume.

    Koger tells of Richard
    Holloway, Sr., a black carpenter who purchased his African cousins
    as slave labor. Cato was the name of one of his slaves. Cato
    remained in Holloway’s possession throughout the 1830s and ’40s,
    according to Koger, until he was sold to his son, Richard Holloway,
    Jr., in 1845. Cato died in 1851 and the younger Holloway replaced
    him with the purchase of a 16 -year-old black male.

    Koger says there were ten black slave owners in Charleston City, SC in 1830.

    4. In 1860 the largest slave owner in South Carolina was William Ellison, a black plantation owner.

    Ellison was one of many free blacks who, themselves, owned black slave labor.

    In 1830 there were about 319,599 free blacks living in the United States. That same year there were 12,740 slaves owned by blacks

    Black Property Owners in the South, 1790-1915, by Loren Schweninger is another excellent source for accurate history detailing the life in the antebellum South.

    5. Without black African slave owners there would have been no slavery in America.

    Henry Louis Gates enraged his base in 2010 by strongly opposing reparations to blacks. According to Gates the slave trade was almost wholly the result of black slave owners selling their human wares to Europeans.

    He wrote:

    While we are all
    familiar with the role played by the United States and the European
    colonial powers like Britain, France, Holland, Portugal and Spain,
    there is very little discussion of the role Africans themselves
    played. And that role, it turns out, was a considerable one,
    especially for the slave-trading kingdoms of western and central
    Africa. These included the Akan of the kingdom of Asante in what is
    now Ghana, the Fon of Dahomey (now Benin), the Mbundu of Ndongo in
    modern Angola and the Kongo of today’s Congo, among several

    The historians John Thornton and Linda Heywood of Boston University estimate that 90 percent of those shipped to the New World were enslaved by Africans and then sold to European traders. The sad truth is that without
    complex business partnerships between African elites and European
    traders and commercial agents, the slave trade to the New World
    would have been impossible, at least on the scale it
    occurred.[Emphasis added]

    The notion of White
    European raiding parties descending on unsuspecting African
    villages is a gross distortion of reality. Not only does the
    historical record argue against White raiding parties, but such
    parties would have been costly and inefficient compared to
    purchasing Africans already held in slavery. White slave traders
    would not endure the risk related to such incursions. Furthermore,
    Africans already held as slaves would be less willing to resist,
    particularly among those whose African owners were brutal and
    abusive enemies.

    Gates noted on another
    occasion that the importance of David Livingstone’s disappearance
    into black Africa was significant because White people never
    ventured beyond the coasts. The prospect of disease and other
    unanticipated dangers compelled them not to embark on slave-hunting

    According to the report of Joseph Cinque’s testimony in court, New York Journal of Commerce(10th January, 1840), the leader of the famed Amistad slave ship rebellion was originally taken captive by Africans, not Europeans.

    It is widely rumored that Cinque, himself, became a slave trader after his return to Africa.

    6. Blacks, including slaves, were allowed to own property in the antebellum

    The ‘rent-a-slave’
    concept may grate against our contemporary moral sensitivities, but
    owners of black slaves often found it economically reasonable to
    earn extra income by renting idle slaves. We also may find it
    surreal to learn that slaves often rented themselves. This allowed
    them to live autonomous lives to varying degrees, depending on the
    rental agreement arranged with their owners.

    Mary Ann Wyatt is a
    quintessential example of a self-rented slave. She was a Virginian
    slave who rented herself (and her five children) for $45 per year
    for ten years. During this time Wyatt established an oyster retail
    business. Each week she would travel sixteen miles to the
    Rappahannock River and buy two baskets of oysters which she sold on
    the town square to local residents in King and Queen County. Wyatt
    earned enough profit to purchase properties including a rental

    Southern states enacted
    laws to regulate the activities of self-rented or otherwise
    autonomous slaves. This was due to concern that autonomous slaves
    would outbid freemen, including whites, for freelance work, such as
    construction. There was also concern that autonomous slaves would
    resell untraceable stolen property. This prompted free Southerners
    to press for limitations on what autonomous slaves were allowed to
    sell. Many whites favored the concept of autonomous slaves,
    believing it encouraged personal responsibility among blacks.

    publisher of DailyKenn.com. Now 62 years old, Kenn formed his
    conservative views at the age of 14 and was an early member of
    Young Americans for Freedom. He is a vociferous anti-racist but

    bullied into silence regarding racial issue. Violent black crime is

          They may well already be knowledgeable but they are up to Hitlers old tricks; inflame feelings of outrage and focus it on a people (or an object) and they have almost all of the crowd’s attention. No thinkers are wanted for this crowd.

  • Thomas Goss

    My country has gone nuts. I am sick of these proterters, just because one person doesn’t like something these days everybody else has to change. SCREW YOU, if you don’t like it to god dam bad. It’s the Confederate flag, the ten commandments, prayer, religion, marriage between a man and a woman, monuments to Confederates, the fleur de lis, and list goes on and on. Well I don’t like Obama and can’t stand the sight of him, so I want ALL images of him and him gone from my country, how do you like that. Give me a break ASSHOLES and shut the hell up and get out of my country.

      the criminal part of this whole thing is there digging up the grave of the general and his wife. once your dead , what differance does it make,. to dig up bones? Desicration is a felony.unless your the government.

    • If your not an American, then you need not worry your feeble little Euro mind with it, son. Don’t try to understand things that, unless your born into it, you will never come to understand.

      • Kurt Hanssen

        How to annoy a liberal.?. Use facts, and logic.!

    • You know, after reading your comment a 2nd time, your speaking of the insanity of the Left, trying to publicize their actions. My bad and I apologize for any rude remarks I might have made, thinking you were a Liberal Euro. I never hesitate to admit I was wrong about someone, hell, I have turned out best friends with people I started out arguing with, lol! Yes, the Left in America are complete Loons, and they mentally deranged. Just look into the eyes of their Leaders, like Obama, Pelosi, Reid, Biden, any and all and you will see a crazed insane look. I know most of them are bad alcoholics, especially Pelosi, that woman is pure alcohol and Botox, lol! Hey, I move to Europe back in 1990, my wife is from here, Mozart Land. You from Norway, Sweden? God Bless you and yours!

      • You’re such a hypocrite, Nitwhit. You jump all over someone calling him all kinds of names until you realize he’s “one of you”, and then you’re best buds. You’re a first-rate a**hole. Talk about “Don’t judge a book by its cover”, and the Golden Rule? You fired BEFORE you saw the whites of his eyes, and you judged a man before knowing anything about him. God destroyed Sodom for just those kinds of sins.

        • Kurt Hanssen

          Thanks for backing me up, but he has apoligised, and that’s ok with me.Thanks again.

        • Think I give a rats ass what you think, Twat? If someone is not clear in their comment, then I usually get them to clear up their meaning. If you have a problem with that, then call your mama down to the basement and cry to her! Be Clear, Be Precise, then people won’t misunderstand what they are saying. Now, go back to your kissing Obama’s butt like a good little Leftist Twat!

      • Kurt Hanssen

        Thanks, Apoligy accepted. Norway, you were pretty close. guess you speak German then? Been in this country for several years, long enough to agree with you about the left. Thanks again,and a good adwice, sarkasem make you loos friends. Please excuse my English, and enjoy Eourope.

        • I like Europe, I live in Austria and own a house in Hungary, way out in the sticks, in a village, but it is way out in no where land, lol! I make it back every two to four years, was back last in 2013 and my sister, from Oklahoma, will be here in the morning, to spend a couple of weeks. I was Oklahoma born and raised, even got the OK Flag Symbol tattooed on my back, lol! Long story as to why I moved here, but only had four little girls when we first moved here, now we have eight grandsons and two granddaughters to add to them, plus son in laws, so we have a large immediate family. Love to move back, but the cost would be outrageous for so many, plus, got a life started here, retired now, but the daughters and kids all have their lives so it would probably be pretty hard to get them all to go back, and I am not about to leave them alone, so , kind of stuck, lol!

      • Kurt Hanssen

        You are so right, the muslims has invaded Eourope, Sweden, and Denmark is completely out of control, one of the reason That I’ moved ower here, and now thy got 36 training camps on gow land in seweral states, so the are some problems ower here to.

        • Do you mean you moved to the states? My wife is from Europe and we moved over here back in 1990, to Austria. Not too bad in the countryside yet, but in Vienna is overran with the barbaric Pigs! And with all the refugees coming in now, they just set up a tent city across the street from us, at the police station, and have about 200 heathen males over there and they allow them to walk the damn streets! This is all part of the Islamic takeover and Islam said that they would take Europe again without firing a shot, and now they are doing it with these refugees. I am ready to head back to Oklahoma, dig up my cache of Arms, and start preparing to go Islamic Pig hunting, lol! I pray your enjoying America and don’t listen to that heathen homosexual Muslim we have as a President at the moment! Obama is one perverted, penis sucking fecal maggot and never to be trusted, he nor any of his staff! If I could load up my entire family, we would be heading back but with grandkids, we number around 20 now, and that is a lot of money! God Bless!
