No one is calling for the confederate flag to be banned. They're calling for people who know better to stop flying the thing as if Jefferson Davis just stepped out for a pack of Chesterfields and will be back any minute to show those carpetbaggers what for.

Private citizens are entirely within their rights to celebrate slavery and a patronistic economic system, and other private citizens are entirely within their rights to mock them resoundingly.
