Here's the original video with over 760,000 views. :thumb:

That really takes the Isis on the cake.

When you boil it all down Walmart is pretty sorry about everything.

Although walmart sucks. They have the right not to make it if they don't feel want to. The guy in the video is stupid he is trying to make some out to be something its not. Perhaps he works for FOX news. I'm glad he doesn't use the flag for hate but enough people have that...well that's just too bad.

Large corporations should be treated as public when it comes to freedom of speech issues. Otherwise they have too much control over what we are allowed to say. I get that WalMart is a private corporation and that under out current set of laws they can do just about anything they want to, but when a corporation engages in any form of publishing (in this case putting a message and design on a cake) it should not be allowed to censor those wishing to make a statement. Laws should be crafted to prohibit such censorship.

May I point out the irony of the couple that just got sued for refusing to make a gay wedding cake? We have all the freedom of speech that politically corrected, corporate fascism allows; you can't have your cake and edict too (unless you are Walmart)!

Dukes of Hazzard Pulled by TV Land Over Confederate Flag
The politically correct idiots in charge are at it again! These two guys kind of sit on the fence and fail to properly condemn the idiots who want to ban the Confederate flag.

There's really nothing to debate here. The confederate flag is just a bunch of stars and an x. Had it been a bunch of stars and stripes it would have been no different. Had it been a white flag as James suggested people would have been offended claiming it stood for racial purity. Only two flags remain politically correct, the Jewish flag and the stars and stripes and when somebody with the power to eliminate them doesn't want them anymore then we will all be in the same boat with nothing better to do than argue who's fault it was.

The Dukes of Hazard just sucks, with or with out the symbolism. Glad they replaced it with another hour of Bonanza.

Fight over Confederate flag at Elk Grove business ends peacefully
I'm with the stand your ground crowd on this one. Caving into the whining of a bunch of politically correct idiots is the wrong thing to do!

S.C. lawmakers debate Confederate flag on capitol grounds
Looks like the flag is coming down in South Carolina. It's just a matter of how long it will take.

All while I was growing up everyone called it the rebel flag. Not sure when it changed back to it's other name or even how for that matter.

Viral Challenge Dares People To Destroy Confederate Flags On Private Property
SJW extremists denying freedom of speech to those they disagree with. Typical liberal hypocrisy.
