Is this really the world we want to live in? Your freedoms are disappearing because the PC crowd demands it. Good luck America.
Sgt. Shannon Dildine, of the North Charleston Police Department, allegedly posted the photo several days ago and the image has since gained attention as it circulated on social media, according to ABC News Affiliate WCIV, was axed after allegedly posting a picture to his Facebook page showing wearing nothing but Confederate flag underwear and a smile.
The letter slammed Dildine for significantly undermining “your ability to improve trust and instill confidence when working with our citizens.”
“Your posting in this manner led to you being publicly identified as a North Charleston Police officer and associated both you and the Department with an image that symbolizes hate and oppression to a significant portion of the citizens we are sworn to serve,” Police Chief Eddie Driggers wrote today in a letter, obtained by ABC News, to Dildine.

All incidents like this are going to do is continue to create a deeper divide between blacks, and everybody else. Blacks vote for the Democrats. But Latinos and Asians, especially those with a good education and career, vote for Republicans.
For those who never picked up a history book; most southern soldiers never owned slaves but a lot of Yankee soldiers did, including Gen U.S. Grant. Lee never personally owned slaves but as overseer of Arlington he freed the slaves on that plantation before Grant freed his personally owned slaves.

We now live in the land of the perpetually offended. Anyone foolish enough to say what they really think is immediately smacked down by the liberal media bully machine and the politically correct. The “supposed” touchstone of liberalism is tolerance of differing ideas. Yet this mob exists to enforce conformity of thought and to de-legitimize any dissent from its sanctioned worldview. Intolerance is its calling card. Don’t bother trying to make sense of what beliefs are permitted and which ones will get you strung up
in the town square. Our ideological overlords have created a minefield of inconsistency.
