Confederate Flag vs. Pronkssõdur

Last night I was watching a 60 Minutes interview with presidential candidate John McCain, one question that came up was his view on the Confederate Flag which is flown at the state capital in South Carolina. In 2000 this issue came up and he said it was a state issue, many believe his stance on this played a part in him loosing the primary there and subsequently losing the Republican nomination.

In this week's interview he said that his initial statement wasn't what he truly believes and in his heart he knows that flying the flag is wrong, quote: "That it was a symbol to many of, a very offensive symbol to many, many Americans".

Similarities with Pronkssõdur?
