This may be only one person, but there are many more idiots just like him. When Americans stand outside the White House with what's pretty much another version
of a Nazi swastika something has to be done. If we can't change the people, then start eliminating ways in which they can disrepect this Country.
The confederate flag is a disgraceful part of American history and needs to be forgotten and buried.

It's an enemy flag and it has no place in this Country. The cival war is long over, they lost. Get over it!!!


Look at this fuckin prick, holding this assrag next to Old Glory and U.S Military flags.

Learn your state flags. It's not an enemy flag it's a state flag and a source of pride to southerners. Those of us in the south are proud not to be Yankees. Mississippi, Georgia, and North Carolina all take their flags from the confederate flags. Texas takes theirs from the Texas flag, from the time the were a republic, Alabama and Floridas flag descend from the flag that flew over the spainish territory; state flags represent state pride. As it should.

We don't ban swastikas either.

Thr swastikas are a great comparison to make. Much like the confederate flag, anyone who really feels its necessary or acceptable to trot it out in 2013 is doing us the favor of taking out all the guesswork by self-identifying as an ignorant, hateful secessionist bigot at worst, and a selective, tone-deaf student of history at best*. We all know that the mouthbreather pictured above is not there for the purpose of exhibiting defeated battle flags or discussing ancestors who fought for Robert E. Lee. Same with nearly every other one we might see in the back of a pickup truck or emblazoning a twitter handle.

This is not an argument to ban anything, only to call things what they plainly are. Billy Joe Backhoe isn't doing thesis work on confederate wartime politics, let's not pretend otherwise.

Ummm, no.

The Confederate flag evokes emotional responses from all sides. That makes it a pretty potent symbol. I get that.

While I do find this ass-hat carrying the flag in front of the White House mildly offensive, I accept that he's got a First Amendment right to do so.

Just as with many symbols, the reasons people chose to identify with particular ones often vary considerably. Without talking to the guy carrying the flag, I have no idea of exactly what message he's trying to convey.

As one who comes from the deep South, I am not embarrassed by the Confederate flag not do I feel any shame that my "native state" was once at war with my current country.

Symbols don't bug me -- people do.

Obviously you've not spent time in either the country or the south. That flag doesn't mean burning crosses or slavery. What that flag stands for is things other people don't even realize they are missing.

It stands for working hard in the sun, sweating to get a job done. (Or freezing depending on the weather. The point is not letting circumstances get in the way of what must get done) it stands for Sunday mornings spent in church. It stands for slow cooked beans with greens and ham. It stands for real biscuits, made with butter and buttermilk. It stands for Saturday nights mudding and trashing the truck you spent Saturday cleaning. It stands for time spent with your dogs and your buddies in the woods. And Mondays spent in the sun again. It's hard work and traditions.

Most of all it's pride in yourself, your family, your friends, and your home.

I don't see that as wrong.

I might not agree with him politically. Hell I disagree with both sides. But I understand that he loves his family, his friends, his home, and his way of life.

Some folks really need to learn their history ( not the revisionist crap they teach in schools these days) The Civil War started over states rights slavery didn't become the main issue until Lincoln issued the Emaciation Proclamation I think tying the Confederate flag to just that issue is an over simplification, a good comparison might be the " Don't tread on me" flag which stood for the same thing. Please don't misunderstand I'm not advocating any agenda just that some times we need to know more of the "why's" for things. Didn't mean to step on any ones toes.

That's when it *officially* became a primary war issue, yes, but the southern states long (and rightly) suspected that the Republicans, newly armed with a president of their own, would attack slavery as swiftly as possible. But the cause of the civil war isn't really in question; we all know that to some key degree, the war was very much about slavery, which the South's economy and accumulated wealth absolutely depended on (for example, in 1860, Natchez, Mississippi, a key slave trading hub and agricultural port, had more millionaires per capita than any city in North America). States rights issue? Absolutely. The states rights to maintain and expand slavery, among other things, were directly threatened.

Quote:

tying the Confederate flag to just that issue is an over simplification


Recognizing the confederate flag as the chosen symbol of slaveholders and those who wished to live in a nation rooted in slaveholding, is not an oversimplification, it's just a recognition of fact.

Be that as it may, I can at least comprehend (if not understand, exactly) what Naughtynurse is trying to say. That while it's a symbol of enduring intolerance and a celebration of sordid history to many (and the words and actions of many who associate themselves with this flag prove that point over and over again, sadly), to others it has been given second life as a cultural values symbol. What I don't understand is how one can acknowledge the evil which the flag few in support of, and not view its continued use as immoral as a result of it. I realize that many do, and that their mental house is in fine order, I just can't fathom how.

Because to me and to many- speaking of history and learning our lessons- this seems to turn a blind eye to it, picking and choosing the good while gladly omitting the bad. To me and to many, the use of this flag isn't simply offensive. Looking at internet porn in a children's library is offensive. This reaction, which I'll grant has a certain emotional charge beyond just the facts at hand, is a much deeper visceral reaction.

All that said, I don't think it should be banned. We have to be careful about banning anything. Banning doesn't fix things. We have to want to see things differently on our own, and yes, choose not to fly a confederate flag outside of the White House. Short of that, we have to at least acknowledge the poor choice that doing so represents.

In the same way that I can view a bible and not see the Spanish inquisition, I can see the French Flag and not see a guillotine. I see Columbus day and not see the atrocities done to the native Americans, I can look at a Muslim and not see the twin towers. it seems there are atrocities attached to many objects. I think that those from other regions have no idea the depth of pride those stars and bars can create in a Southerner or really in any country person. It is over simplified into a simple symbol for racism, whereas down here its something else entirely. I can understand the hatred that it causes to those who see it as only a sign for those actions. Just as many hate the swastika neverminding its origins, or the fact that it is a common symbol in Asia of wealth and good fortune.

Lets get a few facts out to makea point. By the outbreak of the Cival War almost half of the South had recognized that Slavery was morally wrong. On the other hand their total economic structure was tied to it. Those in the North offered no slutions, I often wonder had the South agreed and abolished slavery on its own would the whole nation have survived. Remember most of the agriculture was in the south some of the newly admitted states and some tobe admitted became where a lot of our grain comes from now. In the end the war was for states rights not a single issue. We may be willing to go alnog on most of what you want us to do but dont DEMAND. To draw an analogy to today we have a war on drugs. Good sentiment but if the war was won totally it may do more harm than good. The fight is big business and entire angencies are devoted to it. They would cease to exist. Way too much money would be lost and way too many peoples jobs and livelyhood depend on it. This is a true conundrum. The 1st amendment is the freedom expression and ifi disagree its still your right to express as long as its done peacefully.
As far as a swastika that was originally used by a clan of Monks and was adopted by Hitler most likely out of sick sarcasm and another deeppart of his delusional thinking. Neo nazi's still have the right to say their opnion wether i agree or not. I am proud to be a southerner. Iam proud of our history although some things may not have been as good as others. Its still my heritage dont tread on it. Someone mentioned the Emancipation Proclimation, that was the most useless peice of political rubbish ever spoken. We will set free a group of people an rightfully so But we wontmake them a citizen and they wont have rights but we will take them away from all that. Wow! looks lie politics are still the same wehavent learned anything.

This is a National Confederate flag





*i'm ok, with this flag. * Very honorable Southern symbol, if you want to go that route.


The flag in my first post is considered as a battle flag. Georgia no longer incorporates that design in it's State flag. Mississipi does but, what has four "I's " and can't see?

just a thought. if you were standing outside waving a nazi swastika flat in front of a synoguoge, would it be considered offensive? if so, how is that different from waving a confederate flat outside of the white house while the standing president is black? to some, perhaps, it is a symbol of pride, hard work, family, all that, but to most African-Americans it is a symbol of slavery, pure and simple.

No, it shouldn't be banned/burned. Everyone has the right to be an idiot/bigot/whatever else they choose to be. Everyone knows (or should know) what the Confederate flag represents. What it really represents. Choosing to blatantly ignore this and wield it anyways is a personal choice/right...and shouldn't be revoked just because we don't like it. I'll always see slavery/oppression when I look at a Confederate flag...as will many others. I've no doubt in my mind that the guy wielding the flag in the above image was doing so for all the wrong reasons. But he has the right to do so. I'm not in the business of trumping on rights just because someone does something totally against my beliefs.

People have the right to be jackasses. And I have the right to call said people jackasses.

also, something to think about... if i was to march on washington dc, i wouldn't be waving around a Washington, California, Colorado, New York, whatever, flag.... that said, i might be wielding a rainbow flag and, as SWW said, it's people's right to wave whatever flag they want - i'm not disputing that - i'm just being real about what most of us think when they see that particular flag flying - sorry, but it's got a tainted history.

Banning anything just makes it cooler to people who think it's cool already. It would martyrize the flag in a way.

Let them wave their flag. It's obvious when people use it as a source of pride or hate to any outsider. This guy is using it as a source of hate. If he actually had balls he would just hold up a sign that said "that blak mooslim sand n----r aint mah prisedant."or something equally representative of his beliefs. Instead he uses a symbol that he can weasel his way out of political confrontation by saying it's just a pride symbol of his heritage. It's a bitch out.

The flag being there in this protest immediately takes away their credibility. They shoot themselves in the foot with it. If you ban the flag you also take their ability to alienate the majority of the population. The flag being there makes them all look stupid. It's like showing up to a serious debate wearing a clown outfit.

Why stop them? Let them look stupid.

Just a side note (and yes my country was involved in and lost many a man against the nazi's, lost an uncle i never meet due to them.) the Swastika is not just a Nazi symbol. it is a major symbol of hope prosperity etc.

It is all in the context it is presented with and the context it is taken in by. is that not the power of flags?

Quote Wiki : Among the earliest cultures utilizing swastika is the neolithic Vinča culture of South-East Europe (see Vinča symbols). More extensive use of the Swastika can be traced to Ancient India, during the Indus Valley Civilization.

It hit the news here a few yes ago when a young newly immigrated family arrived and painted a large Swastika on their root. it cause a riot with the local Jewish community and the war veterans.

A Symbol of hope to one is an insult to another. So who's religion wins out here? Both have horrific past in regards to blood loss. Not many westerners know of the years of wars in India with the different religious factions. if you can actually cut it down to religion as like being Jewish or Hindu, these religions are also known as a individual race of human kind.


Does America not have a Constitution that allows the people of america to express their beliefs free of fear. Imagine if you lived in a country that if you were to express your self so, you would be thrown in a jail, lost for ever until your body appears in a box.

Yes but the Buddhist swastika is different. The swastika is the Buddhist symbol backwards no? And it's not on a red and white flag? The nazi swastika is a perversion of the original symbol and it's easy to tell the difference.

I guess it's kinda the difference between a cross and an upside down cross. I guess once you have seen both it's obvious. I imagine that most of the eastern world and the educated western world knows the difference. I think if people saw a buddhist temple with the symbol incorporated into the architecture of the building they would hardly think they were Nazis. That said I have learned to never underestimate the ignorance of people.

The ACLU defends the right to wear Confederate flags on shirts etc in public, display on private property.

You are free to disassociate yourself from anyone who does wave a Confederate flag. It's called freedom and liberty. You can choose to wear and wave whatever flag you wish. If we are to have freedom then you have to show tolerance. It takes an intelligent and open mind to be tolerant and a closed narrow mind to be intolerant. Intolerance though is not illegal unless you carry it to violence or infringe upon the civil rights of others.

If you want to go around banning and censoring you should take a look at yourself in the mirror to see intolerance.

I have written a new poem. It is called 'Long Twisty Woman.'

Also, if you wish, check out my co-authored a story with the wonderful DanielleX. It is called 'Focus on Sex.'
