    A historical flag that represents a treasonous government. So is Old Glory, but we won, and history is written by the winners.

    Secession: (derived from the Latin term secessio) is the act of withdrawing from an organization, union, or especially a political entity.

    Secession - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    Because you said you never thought of secession as treason.

    And it turns out that treason is "violation of allegiance to one's sovereign or to one's state" which is exactly what the Confederacy was guilty of.

    You just have to look at the values of the group instead of getting caught up in words like that. And the values of the Confederacy were despicable and not something I could ever support. That's why I don't like the flag, and find was glad when Georgia changed our state flag a few years back.

    Wow!
    I think you misread my comment. Read it again. Hint: I didn't say that everyone who flies the flag doesn't want to be a part of this country.

    Actually it is. Did you not read the title?

    The founding father were traitors to the British Crown. You can't ignore history because you want to put blinders on.
    They were traitors. How am I ignoring that? LOL. I see you're trolling again.

    LOL no. I'm pointing out the irony of those who think they're being patriots by flying the flag of traitors.

    Instead we are getting caught up in symbols? No difference.

    Some were, some weren't. I mean if you take out anything about slavery it was far better than what we have now.
