Is the Confederate Flag or the Rising Sun flag a more historically sensitive and controversial flag?

Depends on who you talk to. There'd be a lot of Chinese and Koreans who would have something to say about the Rising Sun flag and not give a second thought over the Confederate Flag whilst there'd be a lot of African Americans who would have something to say about the Confederate Flag and not give a second thought about the Rising Sun flag.

"Sensitive" and "controversial" as used in this context are terms that represent a manipulative effort to promote hate.
Neither flag has a direct bearing on events today. But both are important reminders of countries that fought against injustice and it's these reminders that the Left is trying to erase.
The Civil War was not about slavery, it was about states' rights. But we're "taught" to believe otherwise. The Constitution supported slavery at that time, so slavery was not the issue - it became the justification.
People are quick to accept the "slavery" claims because they tend to think in terms of today's standards, not through the eyes of those who experienced the political issues at the time.
Banning (or socially discriminating against them) is a form of censorship to prevent any ideas of people fighting against tyranny from being among the realm of possibilities.
"Hate" as we all know, is the product of the Left. And we know that the KKK was a Democrat creation. Liberal hate groups tend to use the Confederate flag as a symbolic representation of their hate.
Thus, you have Democratic hate groups using the Confederate flag to represent their hate, and then you have the same Democrats condemn the hate that they created in the first place. And of course, they'll never run out of "solutions".
This "modus operandi" is a familiar strategy that is seen throughout modern history, and it bears the same signature each time it's used. It's based on the Marxist (Democrat) philosophy "1) create a problem, 2) blame it on someone else, and 3) provide the solution" - and then condemn anyone who exposes this ideology.
The issue of the Japanese flag follows the same trend.
1) FDR provoked the Japanese to attack, 2) he blamed it on them, and 3) his "solution" was to get involved in a war - not just with Japan (as would seem to be the more realistic thing to do if it was just a matter of "defending the country against an 'unprovoked' attack") but in Europe as well, where the United States never had a dog in the fight.
(Europe was FDRs main goal since he was one of the architects of the hostilities in the first place - provoking an attack from the Japanese was how he justified it to Congress to get their approval.)

In the US, alt-right extremists were waving the confederate and Nazi flags at Charlottesville where a riot ensued. Adam Lanza went on a shooting spree in a black church ... he sported a confederate flag etc. I don't see rising sun flags in the US.
