WTF is up with all the ruckus about the Confederate Flag nowadays?  

 

I heard the news that TV stations will no longer air the Dukes of Hazard?!?!

 

Unbelievable that this county lost it's freedom of expression due to somebody throwing a hissy fit and screaming 'I'm offended'?!!?

 

The land of the free has ceased to be...   :(

Agreed.

Walmart ebay amazon and even the gift shops at Gettysburg banned all products with the Confederate flag.

Out of hand.

The shame of it is, there's a whole generation of people who have no idea what that flag even means.  To them, it just means "Hey, look at me, I'm a country boy" or whatever.  If the ones who really want to see the race issues end would let this stuff be, I think they would find a different world, but they keep dragging it out and making a big deal out of it.  We're messed up folks, no doubt about it.  God help us all and I don't care if that offends anyone!

Are all these people so ignorant that they believe that the Confederate flag is to blame? This is a people issue, removing symbols will not change the people. Being this is a very political issue I will stop now.

Yup, no one knows the history of the country in my opinion, and that is probably due to everyone being taught how to take a test, and not how this country struggled to become free, and enforce that freedom. They say history repeats itself... And if it continues the way it is, there is a potential that we will all live to see what the confederate flag is all about, standing up for your beliefs against 'big brother'...

The one thing I am passionate about is The Flag of Our Country ! A lot of young men and women from every race creed and color as well a s different countries fought and died under the color of it and for it. I will never ever surrender my flag and I will defend it to the end. A lot of this talk of the American Flag being offensive has come from the radical left baiters and the rest of the radical " Laime Stream Media ' is trying to push the agenda.

" We " are to blame for that whole generation of American Citizens not knowing or caring about the Flag of our country. Keep on making sure the holidays are renamed and keep on making sure the holidays are about good times and days off instead of being remembered for what they are supposed to be. I have taught all of my kids what it really means to be a true American and to live the free life that we all enjoy. Freedom isn't free and the days like Veterans Day, Memorial Day, Armistice Day, VJ Day, VE Day Independence Day, Flag Day and Pearl Harbor day are just days of " Words " and hollow or no meaning  to many. But for some of us they still hold a solemn and proud meaning of our heritage and sacrifices put forth to make a way of life we all enjoy. Do I worry about offending anyone  " NO " . This is my belief and I will never apologize for it. By now you guys should know how I feel about " The United States Of America". Thanks for letting me convey this to you.                                                                                                                                                                                                            Roger

Have you ever noticed when things are calm, the news people can help blow anything out of shape. Heck they will even report on Donald Trump.

It's the same over here with the Union Jack Flag. Recently, a lady was asked to remove the flag from her allotment as it was deemed offensive........ What's the world coming to I just don't know.

To me the Confederate Flag is part of America's history from the Southern States.

Be interesting to see if the Women's USA Football team have any Confederate flags being used in the Finals.

This is the Confederate flag, the idiots screaming don't even know what they're talking about! They're fussing over the Battler Flag of The Army of Northern Virginia, also adopted by other units later.
