Five IMPORTANT Facts You Did Not Know About This Flag

The confusion caused by the similarity in the flags of the Union and the Confederacy was of great concern to Confederate General P.G.T. Beauregard after the first Battle of Manassas. He suggested that the Confederate national flag be changed to something completely different, in order to avoid confusion in battles in the future. However, this idea was rejected by the Confederate government. Beauregard then suggested that there should be two flags. One, the National flag, and the second one being a battle flag, with the battle flag being completely different from the United States flag.

  1. This is not the National Flag of the Confederacy. It is a battle flag.  Three national flags were tried before the final design was settled on:

  • The first National flag design looked too much like the Union Flag and caused confusion in commanding armies in maneuvers.

  • The second one looked too much like a surrender flag when there was no breeze and it was hanging limply..

2nd flag

  • A vertical red bar was added to the third and final version of the Confederate national flag.

  1. The Confederate Battle Flag was never a National Flag of the Confederacy. It was carried into battle by several armies such as the Army Of Northern Virginia and the Army of Tennessee. It was also used as a Naval Jack by the Confederate Navy.

  1.  The Battle Flag was not called the Stars and Bars. It was called the Southern Cross.

  1.  The original Battle Flag design was a square flag and not a rectangle.

  1.  No Confederate flag was ever flown on a slave ship.  English, Dutch, Portuguese, and the New England States ships were used in the slave trade.

It is necessary to disclaim any connection of these flags to neo-nazis, red-necks, skin-heads and the like. These groups have usurped this flag and desecrated it by their acts. They have no moral right to use this flag – it is a flag of honor, designed by the confederacy to distinguish itself from the Union  .

In fact, under attack, it still flies over the South Carolina capitol building. The South denies any relation to these hate groups and denies them the right to use the flags of the confederacy for any purpose. The crimes committed by these groups under the stolen banner of the confederacy only exacerbate the lies which link the secession to slavery interests when, from a Southerner’s view, the cause was to distinguish itself from the Union.

This is just another cave by the Progressive Republicans. Maybe we should start applying the terminology 'Low Information Voter" to them, complete ignorance.

I did read this article yesterday.  I admit it  I had no idea.  So good info.

Awesome history!

Maybe it is time we fly them all together

CONFEDERATE FLAG? Erase History, All Will Be Well! http://ow.ly/30uLLB
The Confederate Flag represents many things; it's history is a complicated one. Leftists want to change past history by simply erasing it.

CONFEDERATE FLAG? Erase History, All Will Be Well.

Who’dathunkit. After all these years and all those national conversations on race, all we gotta do to fix it is remove the confederate flag from public view?

That is what we’re being sold. Remove said flag and a new era of peace, love, and understanding will commence. Never again will mobs burn a CVS once that flag is taken down.

Thing is, the confederate flag isn’t representative of a singular topic. Progressives want it to be because that’s how progressives operate. Construct a narrative, attach it to a person or a thing, and then use it as a vehicle to ease in their agenda. In this case the narrative is racism represented by the confederate flag which must be removed to make way for the progressive agenda.

Obviously the confederate flag represents much more. It was a Democrat symbol from the 1850s well into the previous century. Democrat luminaries waved that flag as they attained electoral victories. The confederate flag represented income inequality. The pre-Civil War American economy featured unique paradigms north and south.

In the south, a very wealthy plantation owning elite dominated poor whites and blacks alike. My ancestors were among those poor whites who struggled to subsist in that economy. Slavery was, of course, a national holocaust. Even in places like Augusta, GA – where slaves lived in their own neighborhoods off the plantation and commuted to and from work – the relatively benign flavor of slavery doesn’t alleviate it’s evil. It’s worth noting that through the process of manumission slavery could have ended, and become a part of history’s vast dustbin.

The confederate battle flag, which is the one people are upset about as opposed to the national flag of the Confederate States of America, represents the Civil War itself and Americans that suffered through a war that nearly ended the United States itself. It doesn’t represent slavery or racism. Rather, it represents a trying time in our collective history where ideological entrenchments severed our country and even households. The battle flag isn’t retained, then, as a symbol of jubilation but rather, as one of somber reflection. Through Reconstruction the former Confederate States of America were restored to the United States and our nation began to heal.

CONFEDERATE FLAG MUST GO? Then So Must the Democrats Since They Created It http://ow.ly/30HOEB
If the Confederate flag must go, then so too must the Democratic Party which is responsible for it.

CONFEDERATE FLAG MUST GO? Then So Must the Democrats Since They Created It


Political and cultural elites have informed us the Confederate flag must go since they say it is a sign of racism, and if this is the case the Democratic Party, which created it, also must go. Failure to dissolve the Democratic Party is not an option. We must act.

Understanding why the Democratic Party must be dissolved first requires examining what has happened in the past few days involving the Confederate flag and the U.S.’ suddenly deciding that it is a symbol that needs to be destroyed.

I’m not from the South and so I don’t care about the Confederate flag. But I understand propaganda and controlling a narrative. Thus, I understand that those exploiting Dylann Roof slaughtering nine people are in control of a narrative meant to make another fundamental change to the nation. And the usual suspects of the GOP and the conservative establishment are playing into their hands by joining the calls to ban the Confederate flag. They are united in conditioning people to cry, “Racism!” merely at the sight of the flag, and subsequently to think of Southerners as the evilest of evil white men.

Nevertheless, some conservatives argue that removing the Confederate flag is the “right thing to do” even if the Democrat-Media Complex will use it to advance its cause. The Democrats also say it is the right thing to do even as that’s not what they really believe. Both groups have declared that the Confederate flag is undeniably a symbol of racism. Some have even compared the Confederates to the Nazis, saying we wouldn’t have dared allow the swastika to remain after the defeat of the Nazis. Therefore, all involved, communists and conservatives, have gone on record as saying that “doing the right thing”—regardless of how many people support it—is why the Confederate flag must go. And in making this decision and using these arguments they have all unknowingly condemned the Democratic Party.

If a failure to banish the Confederate flag is equivalent to a would-have-been failure to banish the swastika, then the failure to destroy the Democratic Party is equivalent to a would-have-been failure to destroy the National Socialists. After all, the Democratic Party created the Confederacy and the Confederate flag.

Therefore, the nation is now in an interesting position: allow the Democratic Party to continue existing and by our leaders’ own words allow the equivalent of the Nazi Party to continue existing, or do the right thing and forever dissolve it.

ALERT ALERT

1 Billion Dollar Net Worth!!! Oberlin College Claims Poverty To Avoid Paying Punitive Damages To Gibson’s Bakery

Although IRS reports show the university is worth around $1 billion, Oberlin College still claimed poverty to avoid paying punitive damages to Gibson’s Bakery.

As Breitbart News reported this week, the far-left Oberlin College lost a defamation case filed by Gibson’s Bakery after a local jury found the university liable for falsely accusing the family bakery of racism.

The jury ordered Oberlin on Friday to pay Gibson’s $11.2 million in compensatory damages for defamation and intentional interference with a business.

Legal Insurrection reported on Thursday that “the jury awarded a total of $33 million in punitive damages, which will probably be reduced by the court to $22 million because of the state law cap at twice compensatory.”

Legal Insurrection has been following the case for two years — since the beginning — and reports that the school’s only defense against a sizable punitive award is to pretend it is poor, despite holding assets that amount to a billion — with a “b” — dollars and despite paying some of its staffers more than a half-million dollars a year:

Oberlin College was so hellbent on getting the message out that their cash liquidity was in such dire straits — as the eight-person jury was figuring out if they wish to add $22.4 million to the school’s legal verdict bill — that they brought out the school’s president, Carmen Twillie Ambar to the stand to tell that part the story.

“We’ve created deficits … and over the next ten years, if this continues, that is unsustainable and we will not exist,” Ambar told the jury. She even indicated the school’s grants — about $60 million a year from the school, and lots of students get those scholarships as only 10% of them pay the full $70,000 a year — were important to preserve as “the accessibility of education” was a key component of the school’s purpose.

However…

The college has more than $1 billion in funds and net assets according to the latest IRS 990 form, an endowment fund that had grown from $440 million to $887 million in the last 20 years, and because of its non-profit status, pays no taxes on any property it owns.

It also had 18 members of their administration making more than $100,00 a year. The president and chief financial officer of the school were both making more than $500,000 a year.

Grifters gonna grift…

The day after Donald Trump won the presidency, this nutball school apparently decided to take out its impotent woke-rage on this poor bakery, which has been part of the Oberlin community for more than a century.

It all started when three Oberlin students (who would later plead guilty in a plea deal) attempted to steal bottles of wine.

The proprietors caught the students and, while attempting to hold them until police arrived, were allegedly roughed up by the shoplifters. But because the students are black and the proprietors white — and with no respect for due process or facts — Oberlin staffers and students decided some vigilantism was in order and did everything in their considerable power to destroy this local bakery forever, to smite it off the map.

Classes were canceled so hundreds of students could protest in front of the small store while enjoying free food and drink, courtesy of the school. School staffers handed out fliers that basically described the family-owned bakery as the local branch of the KKK.

As a result, the bakery had to lay off almost all of its employees and barely avoided bankruptcy.

In the end, the three shoplifters said race had nothing to do with what happened.

For those of you interested in incurring $200,000 in debt before you even enter the workforce, it looks as though you can major in Mob Justice at Oberlin.
