It is the same with the U.S. flag. Here, for example, is a photo of a northeren rascist using the US flag in bad context:
I would understand when Albania joins with Dardania, that perhaps in the beginning there may be two flags. But the southern flag represents secession not unification, so remove it I say.
It should be removed/prohibited from display on any public space at all levels of government. Private display would have to be allowed. I personally am happy to have moron racists identify themselves. This BS that it's just like the US flag (coming from the very people who support the confederate symbol of treason and slavery) is weak beyond belief. It was under that US flag that slavery was abolished in this country. Yes, atrocities have occurred and in the name of what that flag is supposed to represent (the most recent have been the Iraq War and torture) but by fits and starts we try to correct and get back to first principles of the founding of this country (in that typical hypocrisy of the extreme rightwing, most of the people who find the rebel flag an inspiration are also the most likely to lead us into committing those atrocities and perversions under the US flag). The rebel symbol of slavery and brutality differs entirely because its proponents will never admit they're wrong about anything it represented 150 years ago and still does today. Consider this: the KKK wants to hold a rally on the SC capitol grounds this week to "celebrate" that flag. Now, please, try to tell us that that flag doesn't represent slavery again. The laugh will do us good.
If you want to believe that the South had a right to secede that is your deal, your opinion. But keep in mind that what you are talking about is revolution not secession. The American revolutionists did not secede from the British Kingdom. The only reason the neo-secessionists concentrate on the word secede is because they are making an excuse to take over a portion of the good ole USA. Which is the same tactic that the Confederacy used while starting the Civil War. It did not work then and it will not work now. So give up the fallacious false dilemma bull**** argument, the American Revolution and the Souths anti-American BS are not the same thing.
