The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People and Jesse Jackson's Rainbow "shove-it-down-your-throat" coalition say that our beautiful Confederate battle flag and Georgia flag are full of hatred. This could not be further from the truth.
If you lay a gun on the table for a hundred years, I guarantee you it would not hurt one person until it is placed in the wrong hands.
If you lay our Confederate battle flag and Georgia flag on the table for a hundred years, I guarantee you it would not hurt one person until it is placed in the wrong hands of someone like the Ku Klux Klan, skinheads or some other group.
If any flag is full of hatred, it is this rag of a flag that represents the destruction of our Southern heritage and symbols. The only use I see for the new flag is the same use that people had for a used Sears and Roebuck catalog.
Now that the flag is coming down, no one has anything to complain about. Everyone will have a job, people will stop doing drugs, teens are no longer able to get pregnant and murderers can no longer kill innocent men, women and children. This has solved all our problems. Yeah, right.
No votes for turncoats.
