    Re: Is the Confederate flag a symbol of treason?

    I always thought the only thing the Confederate flag stood for was anti-federalization. Anything else is just personalizing it. If someone slapped a confed flag on their beat up pickup I dont think that counts as treason. It just means they dont like federalized America. And then there are the racists who happen to sport it. Who gives a **** about them.

    A persons actions define them. Not what logo they take interest in.

    my answer is... I don't give a chit if it's a symbol of treason... it's a cool looking flag.

    I like the union jack as well... and the jolly roger.

    I guess that makes me a loyalist pirate traitor....and that's fine, i can live with that.

    No, they were fighting for their property rights. Looking at it in the from the wrong perspective makes your opinion wrong.

    Are you ****ing kidding me? Those "property rights" were slaves. Please read about 6 posts up and you can see their exact reasons as they stated them in writing. It was slavery.

    Not really, since no one said that those who like or fly the Confederate flag are traitors, but whatevs.

    Hindesight is 20/20....most of the time. Yes it was slavery. No one is denying that. However you should put yourself in thier shoes and try to understand it from thier perspective. Those slaves were property. Was it disgusting? From our point of view hell yes. But to them it was just like a chair or house or dog. Would you not be pissed if you thought that the government was going to come in and take your property away from you?

You can search for as many other excuses for the war as you want, but it doesn't change the fact that the flag is offensive to many. Not that you would give a ****, though. There are very few people on this board who have shown a willingness to let logic fly out of the window than you.
    So, by that logic, the Somalian national flag is a racist symbol and should be removed. Yes?
