  • "How about an Antifa Flag?"
    "Oh, we'd kill the driver and his entire family."
  • I would be shocked at one that didn't.
  • They all have one under the visor
  • Wow there was a lot of words explaining how the driver would have taken care of the situation if only he had been told about that flag.  More words about how the flag wouldn't be there if he raced again.

    no words saying that the flag has already been removed, because it hasn't, and won't be.
  • What we refer to today as the confederate flag was Lee's battle flag during the civil war, and very few people outside his command ever knew of it or saw it. Confederate veteran soldiers after the war adopted a completely different flag as their sigil. It wasn't until the desegregation movement that state houses in the south started flying todays version of the confederate flag, and they did so to show support for Jim Crow era segregation. That flag could not be more of a racist symbol even if Hitler wiped his ass with it.

    Apparently they tried using the Stars & Bars in early battles (Manassas?) but everyone was sofa king confused because when they're hanging down, red/white/blue kind of all looks the same. So they went with something more unique.

    If you want to support state's rights, fly your state flag. A lot of people just do that, and there's not stigma.

    That's not even a good reproduction of the battle flag. They've got the square part right, but the flag that Lee's army flew didn't have the stars all the way to the corners, and the flag that Forrest's cavalry flew, which did have stars to the corners, didn't have a star in the center. Modern rebels are so lazy.
  • He has a Confederate flag in his car, AND his car is #45?  Where was his thin blue line flag?
  • So he didn't know...

    He missed alllllll the the white trash biatching about NASCAR's losing side flag

    Sure Jan.gif
  • It should also be noted that the choice of number was no accident.

    Get Stiff for the Biff!
  • Seeing that NASCAR has the flag flat out banned, subby should maybe be a little shocked
  • And not a single mask being worn by anyone in any pic I saw of the race that accompanied the article.


    Also noticed the already-mentioned fact that there wasn't anyone talking about how the decal that was put on the car 10-12 years ago had actually been removed.

    Too bad that state flags from 1800-1900 look like someone wanted to recreate the Renaissance, but only took 6th grade art classes. How busy and full of random garbage can we put in? Does it look good on a letter head? A field of battle?

    Naw. Let's make some middle ages monk art, and slap it on a blue field. Every flag should look like it needed 12 layers on an ink press.

    I don't mind ours (Alabama), which is just a Spanish-inspired St. George's Cross, like a diagonal English flag. 2 colors, red on white background, done. Easily recognizable, but Florida took the same design and added the requisite 6th-grade art right in the middle:

    California: Check out my son's BEAR, aren't you proud of him? If this ends up on our flag, I'm just saying, I wouldn't be disappointed in you. You want that promotion to Director of Flag Art, don't you?
