Flaggers and their bigoted ilk . It's what they do.

It's usually simple to catch and expose them, but the stupid among us have developed no critical skills. They swallow the bilge hook, line and sinker.

A great piece written by Patterson Hood of Drive By Truckers. He very eloquently captures the complexities that go along with being raised a Southerner and the tangled, garbled mess that the flag has created.

It would be nice to believe that, now that this despised symbol of hate and racism has been expunged from the State House grounds in SC, hate and racism is now officially gone from the hearts and minds of Americans for good. It would be nice to believe in the Big Rock Candy Mountain.

There are a lot of feel good, fuzzy emotions over how much has been accomplished by the removal of this memorial symbol from it's place of prominence, and for the people of South Carolina, that's presumed to be a good thing. Sanctioned governmental display of such symbolism is agreeably questionable and, in essence, defeats the intended nebulous rebellious connotations embraced by those who view the flag more fondly and less bitterly than those who carry the chip of both racism and resentment of slavery on their shoulders.

Unfortunately, this brew-ha-ha has relegated, on a wider basis, negative connotations to everyone.......even those who don't particularly subscribe to the extreme factions who embrace or distain the confederate flag for reasons of hate and racism.

Aside from a few neo skinheads and residual southern good ole boys, nobody believes that slavery was an honorable institution, but it was condoned by the nation, as a whole, for a very long time.....and to the benefit of all (except the slaves). A moral issue wrapped up in economics was certainly a large part of the ensuing hostilities, but to consign the entire conflict to a battle over slavery simply denies the complexity of the divide and mischaracterizes the motivations of a lot of dead people no longer able to express themselves.

If boiling down the Civil War into a conflict between those willing to die to end slavery and those willing to die to preserve slavery (no matter how unbelievable that may sound) does anything to put racism to bed, then so be it. Americans are unsophisticated enough to trade truth for warm and fuzzy any day.

We suspect it be as unifying as electing a Black President.

Here is a fact that illustrates perhaps more clearly than anything else just how racist, stupid, and uninformed southern rednecks are about the world.

Because he is black, they blame during an event ... before he was elected president and for which GW Bush was clearly responsible!

Idiot white southern Republican racists ... a pox on all of 'em. They are consumed by rage that an uppity black jes' don't know his place.

It's hilarious how southerners, the dumb ones, trumpet fictions about the civil war.

at shining some light on revisionist history as told by stars and bars wavers.

This piece is another .

Any notion that the Civil War was not rooted in owning other people as property is ridiculous.

Racist revisionist history is wrong, and cruel. Stop it.

I'm not persuaded.

EXACTLY the same sentiments were expressed by a large fraction of the German army and general population during World War 2.

And they were wrong.

The heroes were those who resisted the fight for a dishonorable cause, and who foreswore the glorifying of their failed effort after the war.
