Palestine Pro-Confederate Flag Rally Yesterday


My favorite screenshot from Fox 4 News last night as these folks argue with an African-American county commissioner about whether the Confederate Flag should be flown. (The guy whose face is partially blocked was talking loudly and pointing his finger.)

They look like an open-minded and compassionate bunch. I wonder who they voted for in the presidential election?

Knowing those people, they probably voted for some FRINGE third-party candidate. NEVER ASSUME ANYTHING BARRY.......

They look like teabaggers.

That's like focusing on a group of black people and saying "They look like an open-minded and compassionate bunch. I wonder who they voted for in the presidential election"?

Think before you post, Shorty. Your illogical rhetoric goes both ways.

I wonder who the black guy voted for. How "open-minded" and compassionate is he? Are blacks racist for voting 95% for Obama? They are the only people in America who even care that he is black. The true "open-minded" people are the ones who vote for people based on policy. Not race.

The TV footage showed white people screaming and a black county commissioner sounding pretty rational. Wow

The confederate flag should not be displayed at any court/city/county building.

However, because of the symbolism of the flag and its historical relevance, if a city/county/state removes it from their buildings then they must be held responsible to create a memorial or something equivalent to that so they do not disrespect history.

The people have a right to be outraged because of their attachments to the flag, but it is misdirected. While the commissioner and officials should of had a drawn plan to show reverence to the symbol of the South. Instead of being shortsighted on their community's needs.

Also, the South had risen again, but they showed up late, like every self respecting southern would, and missed the train.

Is there ANYONE who believes the Nazi flag should be flown anywhere in Germany?
Why are there retards who still think the Confederate flag should be flown over ANY government building anywhere?

NEWSFLASH!!

The Confederates lost the war.

Mr. Mike Honcho said...

10:03am hit the nail on the head. Not appropriate for an official display at a government building.

But certainly appropriate to dislay for Historical purposes.

These Yahoos in Palestine are just morons.

Mizchief, if you cannot understand the difference in the Nazi's and the Southern Confederacy then no point in trying to talk to you. Your logic will pretty much make it illegal to display lots of countrys' flags... England, France, America, Spain, etc... But selectivity is soooo much more fun.

9:09 ... NOT "well said." (Contrary to 9:46 above.)

BG did NOT post this pic because it was a bunch of "white people" (as opposed to your suggestion regarding a pic of a group of "black people"), but because it gives every appearance of being a bunch of angry, belligerent, ignorant "white trash."

I don't know, why don;t you ask your party and see?

11:28 - MZ's point was damned clear. I don't know any country that lost a war and gets to have their flag flown by the country that beat their ass. Rednecks like you still haven't figured out, the confederate rebels were traitors, to the United States, who had their asses handed to them. By the looks of things, there are plenty of dipsticks who still need to be reminded of it, regularly.

They lost, for sure, but it was anything but having their asses handed to them.

Funny, this girl may be skinnier, but I bet she's boring as hell. Bring me the solid one from yesterday. She looks like she could take some pushin'.

Mr. Mike Honcho said...

Rage, your 12:56PM goes down as the first one I have wholeheartedly agreed with.

I am not a "South Will Rise Again" type... but any student of our Civil War knows it was a bloodbath on both sides.

Having ten billion dollars in property laid to waste and two-fifths and of its livestock destroyed pretty much goes a long way to proving the South had their asses handed to them. If that doesn't convince you, then maybe, the 100 years after the end of the civil war, that the South was among the poorest parts of America does something to make you take a step back and rethink your bullshit that the South didn't do too badly.

You got to hand it to the South, they're making all kinds of inroads and getting top rank on a lot of lists. Eight southern states have obesity rates over 30% of the population, the highest in the country: Mississippi, Alabama, Arkansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Oklahoma, Tennessee, and West Virginia. Rates for hypertension and diabetes for these states are also the highest in the nation. The South also has the highest teen pregnancy rate in the country, with states like Arkansas, Mississippi, and Texas having rates exceeding 60 per 1,000 teens.

Keep fighting that losing war and show everyone just what kind of dumb ass redneck you really are. I know it's just got to eat you alive that MZ was right.

Forget the "heritage" and "history" arguments and all that other garbage...the main thing is, the North won the war.

When another country takes you over and you become part of that country, then you lose the right to fly your flag.....period. No discussion. That's how war works. The CSA does not exist anymore. Flying that flag, regardless of what others think it stands for, is a show of disrespect toward YOUR country, the United States of America.

So I say this to those of you who desire to fly the confederate flag.....GET THE EFF OUT OF MY COUNTRY, YOU UNPATRIOTIC BASTARDS!!!!

BUT KICK THEM MEXICANS OUTTA HERE!

Am I right, Tea Baggers? We were part of Mexico far longer than part of the CSA, and the Texas revolution started out as an effort to restore the Mexican Constitution of 1824, not for independence, but don't let facts and history get in your way.

Mr. Mike Honcho said...

LOL at the traitors talk. Those Confederats were traitors... you know, good ol traitors like those crazy Revolutionary War "patriots".

This blog cracks me up. Lots of Yankees that move here and act like Texas wasn't part of the South. Or present day 'necks that think its gonna rise again.

Its part of YOUR history people, and all the angst you have about those rebels today (both the 1861 and those 1776(?) versions) doesn't change the facts. You can bitch about traitors and all that jazz... but no one is leaving the country. People will still be proud of their heritage and if you don't like it, sorry.

I wish a reporter would look up the giddy black woman that was interviewed after Obammy was elected that said he was going to pay for her gas and her mortgage.

I wanna know why Mike Honcho doesn't have his own blog. I'd read it.

I am a Libertarian and have been for 20 years. Trust me, Libertarians do not support the government endorsing the Confederate rebels who attempted and failed to divide and destroy the US.

Like I stated in my original comment, the Confederates lost the war. It is moronic to believe any US government entity should/would fly the flag of ANY group/army/government/country that attempted to overthrow and/or divide the United States.

Equating the LOSING Confederate rebels to the WINNING Colonial patriots is MORONIC.

Ricardo Perry said...

Last time I checked this is the United States of America not the
"confederate states..." That flag (confederate) is a symbol of a cause which sought to destroy this great nation and has no business flying over any public building any more than any foreign national flag.

Bill Maher is a Libertarian. MZ is in good company.

To anonymous 11:55...
Maher's push for ObamaCare and bigger government should be enough for anyone, who knows anything about the Libertarian agenda, to realize, Maher is not a Libertarian. Several years ago, Bill Maher became a Progressive. I think "W" and Chaney are what pushed Maher to the dark side.
