I'll bet all these pro flag braggarts in the comments section are the same ones who would gladly deny Southerners their right to fly the battle flag, even in the South.
Yet one more bit of data supporting the overwhelming conclusion that the U.S. is NOT a nation, but rather an empire consisting not of a people with the same ethnicity, history, traditions, culture, etc. (as the original understanding of a nation maintained), but a collection of peoples of a multiplicity of nations whose function is to service the power and profit of a corporatocracy. If some of the "people" happen to themselves profit from any of this, fine, as long as it poses no threat to the powers-that-be.Regards,David SmithTennessee
The day is coming when the U.S. flag will be just as much of symbol of "hate," according to left-wing haters, as the Confederate flag is today.
@Southron,I agree with your comment. And why should the striped banner not be hated, when it was the one that flew over the slave nation before 1861. I say this in the context of agreeing with those who revise history to their liking. If they were to be consistent in their story line they would have to agree.Our flag was devised to identify southron troops in napoleonic formations of battle against the northern invaders, and to identify a rally point for troops should they become disoriented in the haze of battle. The extent to which it was used or recognised as a national flag are questionable at best.I also contend that long after the Emancipation Proclamation freed slaves behind Confederate lines, those soldiers continued to fight under the battle flag. Why then is that flag so reviled as a symbol of slaveholders, while the striped banner is heralded as the "flag of the free"?
