You’re Not A ‘Patriot’ If You Fly This Flag — You’re The Definition Of A Traitor

You can have all the “Confederate pride” you want, no one is stopping you. However, if you have said “Confederate pride” and also want to claim to love the United States and pretend to be an upstanding American “Patriot” you’re fooling yourself.

CONFEDERATE STATES OF AMERICA
The Confederate States of America (also called the Confederacy, the Confederate States, C.S.A. and The South) was a government set up from 1861 to 1865 by eleven Southern slave states that had declared their secession from the United States. Secessionists argued that the United States Constitution was a compact among states, an agreement which each state could abandon without consultation. The U.S. government (The Union) rejected secession as illegal. Following a Confederate attack upon Fort Sumter, a federal fort in the Confederate state of South Carolina, the U.S. used military action to defeat the Confederacy. No foreign nation officially recognized the Confederate States of America as an independent country,but several did grant belligerent status. [Source: Wikipedia]

Historic Southern United States. The Confederate States have historically been regarded as forming “the South”. States shown in light red are considered “border states”, and gave varying degrees of support to the Southern cause although they remained in the Union. (This image depicts the original, trans-Allegheny borders of Virginia, and so does not show West Virginia separately. See the images above for post-1863 Virginia and West Virginia borders.) Although Oklahoma was aligned with the Confederacy, it was not an official state because at the time the region was Indian Territory, not a state. Drawn by Nicholas F Source en:wikipedia

Wtf is this confederate pride bullshit

[re: this post]

Yeah, it’s exactly that: bullshit. But apparently Confederate History month is a real thing, like “southern pride” in the confederate flag  😒

I posted that in the middle of having a “discussion” with someone and then for some reason I made the mistake of looking thru the “southern pride” tag. That was one of the few redeemable posts I found. Idek what I was expecting tbh. Such aggressive denial about being racist

and Godwin’s law be damned: southerners having “pride” in the Confederate flag is like Germans taking “pride” in the swastika - at least Germany legally bans flying swastika flags and doesn’t have a holiday celebrating Hitler - unlike where in the southern U.S. states, they celebrate Robert E. Lee day close to or on MLKjr’s birthday, celebrate confederate “pride”, and fly the confederate flag on or near State House capitols, other gov’t buildings and even on some public schools (x)  (x)  (x)
