Regarding Heather Scott and her confederate flag, either she is very unaware of the meaning of that flag or she is very racist. Yes she can claim that her actions are a freedom of speech issue. Obviously she is is ignorant of the fact that the confederate flag is basically the same as the nazi flag, and has the same basic meaning. But I shouldn’t be complaining, we elected her to continue the North Idaho legacy of racism. We get what we pay for.
