South Carolina Still Flies the (Insert Intense Gerund Here) Confederate Flag

The oldest and wisest there make a point of flying it in front of the state capitol.

This is akin to sneaking a swastika onto that flagpole, and it needs to stop. It needed to stop well before the obscene massacre yesterday, and it will need to stop even if people make well-modulated noises today about history and heritage and military service and how hard it is to tell why someone does something. It just needs to stop, period.
