A call to ban the Confederate Flag due to its association with slavery is akin to banning the Democrat Partyís Donkey and Islamís Crescent, as both of those institutions were involved in the enslavement of Africans.
The Democrat Party defended the right to own slaves, as the Partyís founder, Andrew Jackson, owned slaves. Beginning in colonial times, approximately 350,000 African slaves were brought to America, growing to number nearly four million slaves prior to the Civil War.
Slaves were purchased at Muslim slave markets.
Islam defended the right to own slaves, as its founder, Mohammed, owned slaves. Beginning in 622 AD, the next 1,400 years saw approximately 180 million Africans enslaved in Islamic occupations.
