This is an accurate offensive stereotype

The Confederate flag just keeps slithering off flagpoles and license plates and out of retail stores lately, and the losses have been piling up like bodies in a Matthew Brady daguerreotype.

Now I Hope Neil Young Will Remember

The most recent adieu to the scar-strangled banner came in Alabama, where, as of Wednesday morning, it no longer has a sweet home at the state capitol. Unlike in South Carolina, which actually has a law requiring a 2/3 majority in both houses to remove the flag, all Gov. Robert Bentley had to do was tell the grounds crew to take the flag down from a Confederate monument on the Statehouse grounds. We were sort of hoping that maybe a group of civil rights activists might have at least taped themselves standing around while a state worker removed the flag, so they could take credit for it, but no such luck.

Gov. Bentley was asked if the flag had been removed because of the murders in Charleston, and he replied (presumably after a brief “are you really asking something that obvious?” glance):

Yes, partially this is about that. This is the right thing to do. We are facing some major issues in this state regarding the budget and other matters that we need to deal with. This had the potential to become a major distraction as we go forward. I have taxes to raise, we have work to do. And it was my decision that the flag needed to come down.

Yes, you also just saw a Southern Republican governor saying not only that the Confederate flag had to go, but also that he needed to concentrate on a tax hike. Are we entirely sure we’re still on Earth Prime? AL.com also notes that in addition to taking down the battle flag, the workers removed three other versions of the Confederate national flag as well. Guess a Southern Man don’t need it around anyhow.

CitaDeleted

In South Carolina, the Citadel — which was created to stave off slave revolts and to intimidate troublesome blacks like the original congregation of Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church — announced that it would be removing the Confederate battle flag from its chapel.

Taking License

Elsewhere, Georgia and North Carolina both announced plans to remove versions of the battle flag from specialty license plates sold by the states, now that the Supreme Court says they can. For your scorecard, that leaves Alabama, Louisiana, Maryland, Mississippi, and South Carolina as the states that, as of noon Eastern, at least, still have Confederate flag license plates.

Run, Bedford Forrest, Run

Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam has announced he’d also like to remove the bust of Confederate General Nathan Bedford Forrest from the Capitol rotunda, seeing as how Forrest wasn’t just a general, but also a notorious early leader of the KKK (though maybe not its first Imperial Wizard, says the wiki).

We can get behind removing the bust, but agree with Gawker that the insanely bad sculpture of Forrest on private land near a freeway in Nashville should stay, because in its misshapen hideousness, it is “the most fitting monument to the ugly idiocy of southern history.” Just look at this goddamned thing:

Fun fact: It was sculpted by James Earl Ray's lawyer!

The Sound And The Spurious

Mind you, not everyone is pleased that the Confederate flag is under siege, because what country do you think we live in, silly? On The Fox and Its Furry Friends Wednesday morning, co-host Steve Doocy shared Rush Limbaugh’s worries that First They Came For The Flag Of A Bunch Of Traitors, and next they’ll come for Old Glory, because that’s how it is with America-hating liberals, as Rush explained:

It makes perfect sense. If you take a look at the timeline of progression of events, the speed and rapidity with which the left is conducting this assault on all of these American traditions and institutions, if you don’t think the American flag is in their crosshairs down the road, you had better stop and reconsider.

Maybe Rush is confused about what an “American institution” is, seeing as how the Confederate States of America was a foreign country that declared war on the United States, and lost badly.

Idiot manchild, professional victim, and pee enthusiast Todd Starnes also frets that Libs will come after the Stars and Stripes, because he is a moron:

It’s only a matter of time before the cultural revolutionaries destroy films like Gone with the Wind and Forrest Gump and burn copies of Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn. Stalin and Lenin would be bursting with pride. You know who else has been doing some cultural cleansing? The Islamic State — bulldozing their way through history — turning Iraq’s heritage into rubble. And mark my words — the left’s cultural crusade will not stop with the Confederate Flag. They will use the perception of racism and hatred to whitewash history and silence dissent. And one day — very soon — I predict they will come after another flag — the one with broad stripes and bright stars. So don’t be terribly surprised when even Republicans stand idly by as they burn the Star-Spangled Banner. Run Forrest, Run.

Yep, we liberals just hate that Mark Twain for his allegiance to white supremacy and dedication to the Southern Cause. Christ, Starnes, have you even read Twain? You’re the one who should hate him, since he couldn’t stand religious hypocrites, blind patriotism, and overseas adventures in imperialism. Also, you don’t need to worry about Gone With the Wind, either — it’s so thoroughly campy that you can depend on The Gays to keep it safe.

Even the Gray Lady has a piece on the sad pushback from defenders of the Confederate Treason Rag. We liked their opening vignette, featuring a sad old defender of the flag:

“This is the beginning of communism,” said Robert Lampley, who was standing in the blazing sun in front of the South Carolina State House … “The South is the last bastion of liberty and independence. I know we’re going to lose eventually.”

“Our people are dying off,” he went on, before encouraging a white reporter to “keep reproducing.”


The New York Times
didn’t have a photo of Mr. Lamply, but we’re pretty sure we’ve seen his face somewhere:

Grr. Argh.

Just about all that’s left now is for the reanimated corpses of Jefferson Davis, Robert E. Lee, and Stonewall Jackson to rise from their graves and yell “Take the fucking thing down already! We lost!”

          It’s true that he was a brilliant strategist, and one of the few ranking officers (on either side) of that era who wasn’t deranged. But he made poor life choices.

        • nightmoth

          Yes, this. He was first offered command of the Union Army, but couldn’t abandon his state. He just didn’t have a big enough vision of what the USA could be, despite his father having been a Revolutionary War general. It makes me sad when I think that everything could have been so different if Lee had chosen the Union side. Shorter war, fewer casualties, maybe not even the 150 years of “chip-on-the-shoulder” bitterness that’s still present in the South, and that has been taken out on the hapless descendants of slaves.

          • Lazy Media

            Be careful what you wish for. A Civil War that ended in 1861 or 1862 would not have ended slavery. The fight originally was over secession, and Lincoln had been VERY eager to say he had no designs on the peculiar institution, until the middle of 1863 when people had shed enough blood to support the underlying issue being settled.

        • artem1s

          at least part of the revisionist history by no-confederates was painting their generals as brilliant, benevolent leaders while the Union’s generals were inept (McClellan); drunkards (Grant); or insane (Sherman). If Lee hadn’t been a traitor, we wouldn’t have gotten two of the best commanders in the history of the US who completely changed how modern warfare was waged. starting in 2014 or so, Charles Pierce cross posted a series of pieces on his blog by Lt. Col. Robert Bateman, an excellent story teller of all things Civil War. Well worth reading for his radically un-revisionist’s take on the excellence of those who refused to let us be a house divided.

          http://www.esquire.com/news-politics/news/a23285/iron-brigade-closes-in-062813/

          the Union’s generals were not losers. Sherman was just that good when he predicted it would take 400,000 troops, 4 years, to finish the job.

          • Meccalopolis

            “After the failure of his first experimental explorations around
            Vicksburg, a committee of abolition war managers waited upon the
            President and demanded the General’s removal, on the false charge that
            he was a whiskey drinker, and little better than a common drunkard.
            “Ah!” exclaimed Honest Old Abe, “you surprise me, gentlemen. But can you
            tell me where he gets his whiskey?” “We cannot, Mr. President. But why
            do you desire to know?” “Because, if I can only find out, I will send a
            barrel of this wonderful whiskey to every general in the army.””

            It was. While we were there we saw two colonels pushing a cart with a huge coffee urn and a sheet cake on it. As they approached I said, “It’s true!”* and everybody laughed.

            (*True that colonels make coffee at the Pentagon, that’s how plentiful and unimportant they are.)

    Here deep in the heart of crazy, we’re talking about taking the statue of Jefferson Davis off campus. I’m against it, largely because removing it erases an ugly legacy of which everyone should be aware and allows the U to whitewash its history.
    Instead, I propose replacing the plaque with “Here stands Jefferson Davis, a treasonous slaveholder who fomented secession in order to preserve the inhumane, exploitative slave economy which supported him and his class. It was placed here as a condition of a bequest to this university, which accepted large sums from a Confederate apologist and racist, in return for erecting this and other monuments to his vision of our heritage.”

    By the way, Dok. That statue is actually on I-65 outside of Nashville. Memphis has our own statue, because of course we do, but we’ve been talking about moving it for years (it also stands atop Forrest’s grave, which presents its own set of problems).

    • Zippy

      the one on I-65 is on private property, which really complicates things, especially since the property owner is racist shitheel

        • bobbert

          Probably related to the Shenadoah Valley.

          • Left Coast Tom

            Makes sense.

            Regarding the Shenandoah Valley…it was a shock to me to learn that Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley is also an AVA…I mean, Amador’s Shenandoah produces such deliciousness, allowing Virginia to use the same name seems like sacrilege. Worse, according to the official AVA list, the good Shenandoah Valley is prefixed with “California” whereas the other one doesn’t bear a prefix.

      The more you know, the weirder it gets:

      The statue was conceived and designed by the late Jack Kershaw, who was one of the attorneys hired by James Earl Ray after he was convicted of the assassination of Martin Luther King. Kershaw, who thought himself an artist and sculptor, chose to locate it where it would be visible from I-65, on land owned by Bill Dorris (president of a bathtub company called Aqua Bath.)

      According to Dorris, the statue – made of fiberglass – belongs to the trustees of Kershaw’s estate, while Dorris maintains the property and the Confederate battle flags that surround it. Mercifully, the state is preparing to plant trees along I-65 that would block the view of the statue from the roadway.

  • VandeGraf

    The treasonous supporters of the traitors flag are probably more pissed than one might expect after 150 years because Grant didn’t hang all their generals. He pretty much said, Okay, you lost, naughty, naughty, so go home and don’t do it again. How dare he impugn their manhood, such as it was?! Real traitors are hanged. They didn’t even bother.

      NASCAR has firmly been against the Stars and Bars for a while now (no cars, drivers or official NASCAR venues can display it, though fans can still display them at the track). They actually have a program where they will exchange any Confederate Flag brought to the track for a driver’s flag of the person’s choice.
      Big kerfuffle a couple years ago at Phoenix when PGA Tour golfer Bubba Watson asked to bring his restored “General Lee” Dodge Charger as part of a parade lap prior to the race (Watson was the honorary starter). NASCAR squashed it because of the battle flag on the roof.

    Though they deny it, of course. They don’t want to offend anyone. Bless their hearts.

  • Latverian Diplomat

It’s always amazing how the Leftists, Liberals and Progressives try to think of themselves as somehow Elite or “educated.” No, they had been indoctrinated during what they thought was education. These folks have their nose high in the air and look down on people who hadn’t walked the same ivory halls [of education]. What’s needed is to learn how to think. Not, what to think.

    Again, all they received was an indoctrination in carefully crafted and rewritten history designed to keep their minds in a box. It’s as the captions common to the Confederate flag state, “if this image offends you, you need a history lesson.”

    Yes, Wonkette, you need a history lesson.

  • Joshua Johns

    Leave it to the same people who will proudly raise a USSR flag and wear Che Guevara on their shirt to demand the confederate flag come down but defend the right for people to fly the flag of any other country they want. They might get upset if they see a Nazi flag of course while wearing their hammer and sickle or the face of some communist murderer. I’m not talking about the guy who wrote this particular article of course, it’s just annoying how hypocritical people can be. Maybe I’ll fly an Israeli flag on the back of my truck some time to piss off a liberal since they hate Jews anyway; everything that comes out of a liberal’s mouth seems to have something to do with this huge conspiracy about how Zionists are taking over the earth. All I hear is anti Semitism and hate coming out of their mouths; they’re practically saying ‘crank up the gas’ every time they say Zionists are the reason the whole world is screwed up.

    As far as I’m concerned I could careless or even take anything derogatory you say as a complement. Seeing how you went to a government school and perceive it as an education. I despise such lame ignorance with a passion! The WORLD literally gets dumber ever time you utter a word. For the love of life lady SHUT THE HELL UP 🤐 hahaha

      Wah, wah, wah. You’re too pathetic to even take pity on. Jealousy of the educated person who pays for your trailer rent & food stamps from my taxes, is SAD! Go to your church & repent, kid.

      You come on a 2 yo thread trying to act like a grown man (albeit stupid) and don’t expect any blowback? You’re no brighter than 45. FFS. Get back to your Legos.

      Proof that you’re an ignorant, troubled kid. Using memes instead of words is the coward’s way out of any discussion. Try to make it to 7th grade in September. Who knows, you might learn to use spell check.

        Just displaying my southern pride and it was the dumb ass autocorrect that was screwing my sentences up in the first place you stupid ass imprudent cunt! Speaking of cowards I’m tired of replying to you “bad ass” telephone tough guys. You wouldn’t ever run your sissy ass cock sucker in the south. Lol
        So I’ll escape this ignorance before you dumb down retards piss me off. 🙄 Watch out for them terrible flags & Jews they’re everywhere!

    BTW how many Yankees does it take to figure out your stars & stripes was designed after & in the likeness of the stars and bars? The colors and stars were on our flag first. So if you’re so offended by the confederate flag I’d suggest you get a new flag.
    So worried about those “terrible” Jews that are always blowing themselves up & flying planes into buildings full of people who pose no eminent threat to anyone. You worry about a historical american flag & people who mean you no harm. Mean while you openly support the mass migration of countless possible terrorist into your cities. And when a suicide bomber finds his way into the Sears Tower or flies a plane into the Empire State you’ll have to remember it will be because of you & like minded people. You won’t be able to point at Jews, Isreal, or rebel flags for that. That’ll be on you! https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/c0a0d5f7e7460b21090912300c8b921b6cb5b1a5c488aa8483ba4147cd33e3dd.jpg

      Hey, genius. You do realize that you’re leaving a bunch of angry comments on an article from two years ago, right? But thanks for visiting, and for the timely discussion of current events. Man, are you ever going to be surprised when you find out what happens to the Traitor Flag on the South Carolina statehouse grounds.

    People are still leaving dumbass comments on this two years later? Weird. Time to close the thread.
