I just burn them in place. The south fought a war against the United States and lost. The confederacy is an enemy of America. If you are proud of being an enemy to America, or your ancestors being an enemy to America….. move. Or get your ugly flags burned down. You decide.

They think they are the only voice that should be heard .94 percent of the population of the South were not wealthy land owners . Nor were they slave owners .. but Again then as now . People like the man in the above article ..Take liberty to be their voice ..It is honorable that he had some family that actually faught in that war as most of the plantation owners hid themselves and family and continues to live in comfort while they brought havoc and devestation down on the rest of the population .. Who had to get up and defend their homes families and neighbors because of Northern Aggression prompted by these creeps . So no this man does not speak for the Southern Cross .. There were the true taitors of the Southern STates .

I wonder if this guy knows that the left wing anti-racist Southern Student Organizing Committee used the Confederate Flag as their symbol in 1964? What I find so amazing is this person is proud of trashing other people’s cultural expressions because of the motives *he* imputes to them. The self-righteousness expressed in this article is truly epic.
