    if the wind blows in a certain direction it infuriates the civil rights movement.... who cares anymore? I mean really they're irrelevant.

    we have the same plates in Virginia and they're very popular.... the Civil Rights clowns should find something new to whine about

    The rebel flag is a symbol of racial oppression and slavery but I do agree it's a good flag to represent the south. I mean, it's basically what the south still stands for, as your comment clearly shows.

    @happyhedon that's what it represents to you because you have the victim mentality... it's not your fault it's the fault of the public education system.

    @bsking The CSA lost and its states rejoined the USA as fully coequal with all other states in the country, yet people are still displaying the CSA flag as a "rebel" statement. That's not a "victim mentality"?

    @InTheDark how utterly liberal and presumptuous of you to take it upon yourself to decide what motivates people to display the stars and bars..

    typical really, and I would venture to guess you were silent when Obamas sycophants desecrated the American flag with his image.

    @Cal Go down to Georgia and tell some of the guys who have family who fought in the civil war that they and their relatives are. Make sure to get a pillow suit from a woman's self defense class before you do though.

    Their ancestors fought to preserve the "right" to own human beings as if they were livestock. If they're unwilling to acknowledge that the cause of the Confederacy was evil, that's just too bad.

    @Cal My ancestors fought to preserve State's Rights and to have less control out of Washington - slavery had very little to do with the war - from the Southern perspective! It was, and still is being used as a weapon of control by Washington.

    @Cal

    if I recall correctly awhile back on a topic about slavery (I don't remember exactly but slavery was brought up) alot of people made comments along the lines of "that was a long time ago, people need to quit living in the past"... I think the same applies here and they should take their own advice....

    @Cal: sure, but this flag was around long before your inaccurate statement but if you feel all warm and fuzzy for saying so good for you. Sons of the confederacy were around long before the SS but you can keep believing as you wish. looking at my tracking numbers you are outside of reality by 7 to 1.

    Aw, the proverbial bed wetters and thumb-suckers are upset <sob> -- let them wallow in their ignorance. The stars & bars was nothing more than a military "battle flag," the detractors made it into a political statement. Get over it!!

    @Cal

    Der "Schutzstaffel" (SS)(protective squad) was originally part of the Sturmabteilung (SA)(Storm troopers) both of which were paramilitary groups of the NAZI party. Hardly a comparison to those that served under the Battle flag of the Confederate States of America. Wise-up!

    State Republicans didn't approve the Medicare expansion and one in four persons in the area has no insurance, of course Hospitals are closing. It's not Obamacares fault Republicans in the state refused to pass the Medicare expansion.

    I'm writing a letter to Georgia's DMV to see if an 'out-of-stater' can register their cars there so they can give the middle finger salute to Political Correctness as well.... <smile>

    And THIS is the reason of the dissent that is of the highest form patriotism.....

    Who are the ones that are really antiAmerican? Son Of Confederate Veterans OR President Hussein Obama and his administration that has armed Al Qaeda and still is not held accountable for the murder by terrorists connected to the Muslim Brotherhood and Al Qaeda of four Americans in Benghazi?

    @Concerned_Cit
    I've lived in Gettysburg, PA for the past 22 years and I've just gotten used to seeing huge Confederate flags outside of museums, visitors center, etc. so it's simply a normal thing to me and everyone else here. The difference is that many of the natives that I've talked to over the years are often very objective and extremely knowledgeable when discussing the Civil War. They really seem to get the whole Southern Pride thing much more than the rest of the country does.

    Then make a license plate! There's no white history month, maybe we should do away with black history month! I live in the south where there are blacks with the Confederate Flag painted on their cars and fly the confederate flag. Here it's about southern history and southern history is not about slavery! It's just a portion of it, just like the north. There was slavery in the north too. People seem to have conveniently forgotten that fact! So the Union Flag, the American Flag represents that same history! The Confederate or Rebel flag is part of the south's history to blacks and whites in the south. Some blacks may disagree, but I have seen too many Confederate Flags on black people's cars to know there is a big difference! I am 1/2 black and I see nothing wrong with portraying the Confederate Flag on a license plate. That is the history of the south! No amount of fit throwing is going to change that fact! Blacks can come up with their own license plate. They have their own everything else! History is history and the confederate flag will never go away!

    The confederate flag represents the south, which got the beat down they deserved in the war. I have no problem with people flying the flag of the losing side, it just reminds me of the US victory.

    I especially appreciate the "Women in Men's Apparel" page on your linked site. Put on them petticoats and hoop skirts ladies!! Take off them britches!! That'll fix what's wrong with things today. BTW, every word on this site is unmitigated crap. I'm pretty sure you must know that.

    Are we going through this again? The Civil War ended 149 years ago. If the representation of the Confederate flag offends, avert one's eyes.

    Just a point of clarity, that is not the Confederate Flag, it is the Confederate Battle Flag. I personally don't have a problem with it, people have all types of symbols and bumper stickers that I don't like. This is a part of history however I personally believe that there are enough people you are bothered by it that I would not display it. I might feel different if someone in my family fought under this battle flag.

    heck a singer was bashed do to having that flag on something.

    It'll help destroy political correctness, in Georgia anyway. Other states should follow suit.
    Dems should be mature enough to know the Confederate flag can be interpreted positively too.

    It shouldn't be a problem from a historical point of view (the past is past) If it was WWII, nobody would mind, at least so far. But obviously some people don't like it and they have a right to object. I had two Confederates ancestors ( and a few northern ancestors on the other side- it's been 150 years, they accumulate). From what I've heard they were good men but of course lived in a different time. With about a 90% casualty rate in their unit I imagine they were just happy to be alive at the end.

    You brought a very valid point, Oltimer.
    WW2 - Does people not hate the German or Japanese or Italian simply because of their opposition. Or would they prefer to hold them to history as well??

    Well being a baby boomer I'm naturally a little hostile to WWII Nazi's and imperial Japanese. I still think some of the people of that time were especially bad and have some group Karma they need to work on. But one day at work I was calling my locked up computer a Nazi when a co-worker objected telling me about how his uncle fought in the Germany army etc. He was a good guy and I felt bad about it. Worked with some Japanese guys that were pretty nice too. Guess we can say that war is over and it's time move on to the future.

    @oltimer : That is an interesting point. If I may I would like to add to it.
    During WWII, muslims in Bosnia/ Albania sided with the Germans, they visited typical destruction on the those not allied with Axis powers. After the war, the USSR kept a thumb on them and the tensions just festered. When it collapsed we had the charges of "ethnic cleansing" as those who had been oppressed now had the upper hand. In the Pacific Japan visited terrible conditions on the Phillipines, USSR and China. Japan, unlike Germany and Italy never addressed their crimes. The only mention I recall was some apology for sinking PT109, the Bataan death march, NADA. Today, China, our WWII ally, now has the upper hand and is flexing there muscles in the South China Sea. I wonder what our response will be, will we back our WWII ally? WJC chose our WWII enemy, will we do the same again?

    We had some Japanese techs working at our company, during a off hand discussion they stated that Pearl Harbor happened after the US attacked Japan. After some protest from our side they went and googled and had the charity to come back and say we were right. Apparently they teach some strange history in Japanese schools. I guess WWII isn't that far away, just hope WWII isn't a connection for the next war.

    @oltimer On a trip to Russia just a few years ago I was there when the publicly announced that the US had been fighting Japan long before the end of the war and that it was Russia who jumped in on our side against Japan at the last minute. They were amazed they had been so misled.

    The NAACP, liberals, progressives, etc. need to get a life and stop worrying about such extraneous examples of people showing their heritage or love of God, country, etc.

    I don't have a problem with the flag, but then again, I'm white.
    I have friends and family of different races that the flag doesn't bother and some it does, but the later would rather pay a ticket than buy this tag...and that's their right. I can understand both sides.

    I lived in GA in 2 different areas for nearly 8 years. Believe me when I tell you, the people who have confederate flags on their cars, truck, or homes are mostly racist hicks. You'd never see the confederate emblem or flag on a nicer home or nicer car. If the Georgia Division of the Sons of Confederate Veterans want to support their " heritage" so much then let them decorate the INSIDE of their mobile homes and re-enact the civil-war battles where the south always wins, because most of those rednecks will NEVER ever concede they lost. They simply don't understand the difference between intent and affect.

    @drpeeper You've got that the wrong way 'round. Assuming the democratic party of the south is liberal, and alot of southerners decided to join the GOP after 2008 (coincidentally after a black democrat was elected president).... that would make the GOP the party of racists..... since apparently all the democrat racists decided to move to the right.

    The GOP is not a racist party, it's just conservative. But that's what your argument kind of sounds like, it makes it sound the GOP is a party of racism. But if I misunderstood feel free to clarify. Also Liberalism is Racist like the Pope is Protestant.

    @Ironicguy I am saying, that it's hard to reverse 150+ years of democrat/liberal hatred.....since they owned that state forever. The GOP is eliminating that racism.
  • #57

    @drpeeper Democrat hatred.... sure why not. But Democrats didn't become progressive or liberal as we know them until the start of WW1. The democrats may have been a party of racism, but it wasn't the liberal ideology. Just the ignorant folks who occupied the Party, and some of the ones who still occupy the Party. But I agree with you, it's hard to try and counteract 150 years of hate.... but the GOP isn't known for being the most inclusive party either. The GOP may very well be just replacing the racism with nationalism, slightly not as bad but still kind of bad. Now the Independents and Libertarians..... I believe they could make a change in the south.
