Me too! Now that I live in the South, it grinds my gears how many of those flags I see. What's worse is that some think that the Civil War isn't over yet.By Seeking Solace, at 3:09 PM
Well, apparently it isn't. The others side certainly doesn't think so. The South has never really accepted this, and sometimes I wonder if it ever will. They went from trying to dominate the Union from within before 1860, to leaving the Union when they couldn't, to becoming a marginalized part of the country, to trying to dominate it from within again. It's ridiculous.By Arbitrista, at 3:14 PM

Interesting you mention the NAZI flag. When we lived in Berlin there was a train stop right outside of town where I would always be mesmerized upon seeing a tiny little shack by the train station. Flying NAZI flags is illegal in Germany, but this house had 4 confederate flags on each corner of the house and one big German one in the middle. I really doubt they were big Dukes of Hazard fans...By Super Babe, at 7:49 AM
BTW, as a Mexican, I can tell you that I'd always thought it was a pretty flag (if you don't know any history), but after living and having married into a Southern family, I have come to pretty much the same conclusion as you have, and unfortunately for them, if I see a person flying the flag, I automatically think they're just ignorant racist rednecks... I don't think "oh, they must be celebrating their heritage"
I still cannot get over the fact that the flag is still in the Capitol building grounds in SC! (But hey, at least it is not flying over the Capitol, right?)
