MS House votes to change flag

Recommended Posts

And the SEC was the reason this happened. Showing yet again that sports can lead the way on social change.

Well, Alabama and even South Carolina came across that line

Alabama came halfway across.  Their flag still resembles the confederate battle flag. Georgia is basically the stars and bars.

It’s a family identity by now.  Their great grandpappy was a loser who lost the war and now it’s who they are

It's dumb and should change but at least this is the actual flag of the country they claim to view as their heritage. The flag was later changed to resemble the battle flag that was created because the original Stars and Bars caused confusion on the battlefield. Everyone who flies a flag in the United States of America that was literally invented to be a battle flag flown against the United States of America while killing American soldiers has always been an idiot. The fact that the United States military is just now banning that flag is absurd.

It's the same thing as flying this:

Runners up in sedition.  Runners up in war.  Runners up in history.  Runners up in life.  

When your heritage is a  "participant" banner, best let go and move on.  

Since the end of the Civil War, the Union Government has managed to reboot the economies of Spain, Mexico, Germany, Turkey, Italy, Japan, China, South Korea, Panama, and a half dozen Middle Eastern regimes.  But not nobody...nobody can help create anything of note in Mississippi.  A people should know when they've been conquered.

They weren't a people. They were a splinter group that lost a rebellion/revolution. Tried to get out (for a terrible reason), got beat, didn't get out.

And when the Allies looked to Canada to seize Juno Beach for Operation Overlord on that fateful day in June 1944, Canada sent the heavy pipe-hitting mutherfuckas from 3rd ID to capture a beachhead 6 miles long and just as fortified and hellish as the stretches taken by Britain and the U.S.  And they succeeded with less than 1000 casualties.  

It's important to note than the 3rd CID was comprised of young men almost exclusively from the 4 western provinces.  Sons of farmers, fishermen, and laborers.  When it came time to liberate France, curious to note that neither the French nor French-Canadians could be bothered to show up.  I kid, I kid.  I'm sure they provided sandwiches or something after the 3rd got their armor on the beach.

This right here. Thank you, nation of Canada, for being out friend. I know a few western Canadians, and they're as rugged and badass as anyone in the US.

Just laugh a little this morning, my friend.    and your post even supports my joke even more as the Westerners have pretty much shrugged off the French influence.

Ok, but the Japanese flag analogy is off base unless you were saying it’s like current Japanese citizens flying their fallen empire’s flag, or a Russian flying a USSR flag. It was their states and their ancestors who fought under the Confederate banners, and while you or others may disagree, some of them do still view it as a states rights thing more than a racist pro-slavery thing (good symbols can be corrupted and considered inappropriate, can a symbol of “racism” be used alternatively by future generations?).

Re: “why would you losers want to fly a losing flag?” If the federal government abolished the states and became the United State of America, would you mock defeated and conquered Texans for flying a Texas flag a hundred years from now? If Canada conquered and annexed the USA (lol jk), would you mock people for still flying US flags that they felt made a statement of rebellion or opposition against their conquerers?

You missed the point, possibly intentionally. 

It is the exact same thing as a Japanese immigrant flying that flag on a United States military base.

No it isn't.

It would be like flying the Japanese flag on our base in Okinawa.   It is their land, but they were defeated.   It's still understandable.

 

FTR- when I see the stars & bars, it's like an instant view into the soul of the bearer, "i hate n_ggers."   Your scenario is still false.

Actually it's worse, because the Japanese immigrant probably isn't telling people to leave America if they don't like it.

The Rising Sun is a cultural thing that goes back 1,500 years.  The current incarnation of the Rising Sun flag is from the 1870s, but in various similar forms it goes back like a thousand years.

Confederate shit on the other hand, was for just a few years.

Jesus the density around here. 

Y'all can try and twist it however you want, it is flying the flag of a war enemy under the guise of heritage. And it was never "their land", they were not a conquered nation. They were an attempted rebellion that was quashed. Stop glorifying their terrible failure.

I did none of that.  Your reasoning is still flawed.  Then because we don't agree 100% on your flag analogy, I somehow support the confederacy.    LOLz.  You people only know one fucking way to discuss things.   Cancel everything else.

 

No sir.  It's just a different perspective.

 

Moving on.

You know what’s too bad is that if can can somehow separate what it looks like from what it represents, the Stars and Bars is a pretty cool-looking flag. Agree with Iceman’s assessment above about what immediately pops into my head anytime I see someone displaying it...

I feel like different posters are using “stars and bars” to describe two different flags, the CSA flag and the battle flag. 
otherwise, who is seeing the CSA flag so often?

not discrediting what the men of Canada did, but your post makes it sound like they were just hard pipe hitting muthafuckas.... and not the fact that 21 of the 29 DD Day tanks assigned to Juno made it to the beach and were able to shield the solidiers exactly as intended, and they were able to knock out the pillboxes much faster as a result.  Omaha only had 2 of the DD tanks make it to the beach.

I don't like the time argument.

I see that when I see the battle flag, not the stars and bars.

i don't care for either one.  I misspoke about the Stars and Bars though.  It is most definitely the battle flag that instantly signifies hatred, regardless of what heritage the bearer claims.

My parents moved to Hernando, MS back in 2003ish. Hernando is right on the MS/TN border by Memphis. My mom was shocked at how openly racist everyone was. Lots of white folk letting the N word fly in public, calling them "boy" and "gal" at places of business. Keep in mind, my parents moved from Vidor into this and it was 1000% times worse than anything ever heard back in east Texas.

I moved to Lake Charles, LA in 2003.  Similar circumstances are why we lived there exactly one year to the date before we could get back to Texas.  You get off the main roads and you started seeing the flags and hearing banjos...almost.  It was eerie as fuck.

Culture shock doesn't even begin to describe it.  I damned sure didn't want my kids growing up around that shit.

The six flags over Texas haven’t been displayed at DKR in quite some time. Not since the Moncrief Center was built at least if I remember correctly

This was long past due.  I cringe when I see that flag.  I don’t mind private citizens flying it.  I support idiots self identifying themselves.  There is a ranch off 117 near us in Frio County. A large, high fenced spread.  Owner has had the confederate flag up for over 30 years.  
 

I fully support idiots being able to do that.  So I can avoid them.
