I am ABSOLUTELY MOTHERFUCKING TIRED of the GODDAMNED liberal left telling me “I should do this” or, “I shouldn’t do that”…
Case in point, The Confederate Flag.
I happen to own every type of official Confederate Flag there ever was…& there were four. Interestingly enough, the one EVERYBODY thinks of as THE Confederate flag…wasn’t. What it was, was the flag of the Confederate Navy, better known as the Confederate Naval Jack, which was flown above Confederate “ships of the line” as a rectangle. The flag below is a square UNOFFICIAL army use version:
The First Official Flag of the Confederacy:
Although less well known than the “Confederate Battle Flags”,the Stars and Bars was used as the official flag of the Confederacy from March 1861 to May of 1863. The pattern and colors of this flag did not distinguish it sharply from the Stars and Stripes of the Union. Consequently, considerable confusion was caused on the battlefield.
The seven stars represent the original Confederate States; South Carolina (December 20, 1860), Mississippi(January 9, 1861), Florida (January 10,1861), Alabama (January 11, 1861), Georgia (January 19, 1861), Louisiana (January 26, 1861), and Texas (February 1, 1861).
The second Official Flag of the Confederacy:
On May 1st,1863, a second design was adopted, placing the Battle Flag (also known as the “Southern Cross”) as the canton on a white field. This flag was easily mistaken for a white flag of surrender especially when the air was calm and the flag hung limply.
The flag now had 13 stars having been joined officially by four more states, Virginia (April 17, 1861), Arkansas (May 6, 1861), Tennessee (May 7, 1861), North Carolina (May 21, 1861). Efforts to secede failed in Kentucky and Missouri, although those states were represented by two of the stars. This flag also draped the coffin of Lt. Gen. Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson after he was mistakenly shot by a North Carolina regiment at the Battle of Fredericksburg in 1863.
The third Official Flag of the Confederacy:
On March 4th,1865, a short time before the collapse of the Confederacy, a third pattern was adapted; a broad bar of red was placed on the fly end of the white field. Incidentally, the broad bar of red was added on the end to keep it from being confused with the “white flag of surrender” while hanging limp.
Confederate Navy Jack:
Used as a navy jack at sea from 1863 onward. This flag has become the generally recognized symbol of the South. Although the army did sometimes fly it, it was NEVER an OFFICIAL ARMY FLAG (as is commonly & erroneously portrayed in movies), & also, when the army DID use it, it was almost always square; NOT a rectangle.
These flags ARE, like it or not, a part of American History, and for some left-wing, nut-job, son-of-a-bitch to tell me that it shouldn’t be flown, OR that I can’t fly it,…he or she, can go eat horse shit!
This IS The United States of America, & I WILL NOT be bullied into “dropping a part of history” that should never be forgotten!
Was slavery a terrible thing? Yes, it was. Is it still going on? Yes, it is. Did the United States do some terrible things? Yes, we did. If we do away with the Confederate Flag, then what’s to stop us from knocking down The Alamo or Little Bighorn Battlefields and turning them into Walmarts!?!
Damn it! You don’t see Jews demanding the Auschwitz Museum be torn down. Why? Because the Jews are smart enough to realize that if you tear it down, people WILL forget (like they are anyway now, because Antisemitism IS, once again, on the rise in Europe!) …because it’s in people’s nature to forget! We almost always do… that’s why we HAVE monuments! Monuments represent both good and bad things in History, and whether you choose to view a flag as good or bad, is your own private viewpoint, but leave it ALONE!
By the way, atrocities were committed under the American Flag too,
why not take it down?
Dumb-ass liberal idiots!
