    A friend of Dylann Roof, the man charged over this week’s shooting in a church in South Carolina, has told BBC News that the suspect had told him a week earlier he wanted to attack a local university.

    WTF?

    And he didn’t think to mention this to someone?

    They sure make ’em smart in SC!

    And while I hate to put too much emphasis on looks . . .

    Geez! Look at that guy!

    South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley Calls for Removal of Confederate Flag From State Capitol

    I applaud her for this!!!

    I’m still disgusted about all those weasel words about how the Confederate Flag is an important part of the South Carolina heritage.

    By the same token, is the Nazi flag not an important part of the German heritage?

    For me, the use of the Confederate flag at Ole Miss’s football games in 1962 cemented with me the fact that it’s a racist symbol.

    ESPN 30 for 30 did a great show on this.

    “And while I hate to put too much emphasis on looks

    Geez! Look at that guy!”

    Amus, lets be careful how we frame people based on looks. It’s easy for us, who never interacted with Dylann or his friends, to race to the wrong conclusions.

    This is more complex than I think we realize. But I do believe it was racially motivated, even though Dylann’s friends may say otherwise.

    Yes, You’re a Racist — And a Traitor

    Let’s go one-by-one through some typical Lost Cause-tinged revisionist talking points:

    The Civil War was about economics, not slavery!

    Yes, the Civil War was about the economics of slavery.

    The Civil War was about states’ rights, not slavery!

    Yes, the Civil War was about the states’ right to maintain slavery.

    That’s not the Confederate flag!

    True, it’s the battle flag of the Army of Northern Virginia, which actually makes your usage even worse. It’s the banner under which men fought and died to enact secession.

    Heritage not hate!

    Funny story: The heritage is hate. This is my favorite talking point because it sets up a false dichotomy and then tries to pretend “heritage” is a signifier for some romantic, noble culture just waiting to be recaptured. When Lindsay Graham says things like, “The flag represents to some people a civil war, and that was the symbol of one side. To others it’s a racist symbol, and it’s been used by people, it’s been used in a racist way,” he makes a mockery of the history. Yes, Senator, it does represent one side of the Civil War: the side that advocated slavery and secession. It’s the flag of treason.

    The troglodyte that killed those people in South Carolina wanted to fire the opening shots in a new race war. He is a Confederate in every sense of the word. He is a white supremacist. He is a terrorist. He is a traitor.

    That’s a bullseye, right in the center of the “X” formed by the Stars and Bars.

    Broadway, be very scared of militant niggers. They are coming after you, your wife, and your daughter.

    Real racism is right in front of us, and if there’s one good thing that can come out of this latest mass shooting sponsered by the NRA, it’s the fact that a spotlight has been shown on the rats.
