This really "Grinds my Gears."

You know the flag that so many hate because of it representing "slavery?"

This one:

And you know what? I say screw you to those who find it offensive, I wave it proudly, and am proud to be from the South.



Those of you who find it offensive cause it "represents slavery" go get a damned history lesson. This flag does not represent slavery. It represents the former country of the Confederate States of America, which was started by the succession of South Carolina, and I'm damned proud to be from here. I don't care what you say, the flag does not represent slavery. I'm sick of hearing that, cause it's not true. This flag has even been used in a very popular television show. Anyone remember the Dukes of Hazzard?


Yup, the General Lee, named after General Robert E. Lee himself who commanded the Confederate Army, take a look at the roof.

See? It has the Confederate flag displayed proudly on the roof for all to see. The show was never bashed for displaying what those call "that obscene flag." Hell, one BBQ resturant closer to town has a Confederate flag waving proudly, the South Carolina state house does as well. So you think this flag is offensive? Go back to history class and get it right. I wave this flag proudly, I don't give a damn what you say about it.

P.S. I realize this is more so a rant, but I've been wanting to write this for a while.
