First of all, I think the removal of the Confederate flag or Confederate symbol from anywhere is a bunch of baloney.
The removal of the Mississippi state flag from in front of Boise City Hall by Mayor Bieter is unfounded. Also, Mayor Bieter needs to read about the history of Idaho City. A lot of the gold that was mined there and the surrounding area went to the South to help fund the Confederacy. So what is he going to do next, put a ban on Idaho City?
