So your a obsessed goof-ball if you are proud of your heritage? I really don't understand that. I am a southern girl, myself. Not that old at all. Twelve years of age. I completely agree with Jaqualine. Why should she have to stand for that? If someone wore a Irish flag would they send her home? I don't think so. If someone has a problem with the Confederate flag and think it is racist to wear it they clearly are in need of a history lesson.
The confederates asked to leave because they did not believe in what the union was doing. Lincoln said no so they fought to leave. Slavery was not in the picture until Lincoln lied about it and said it was. Honest Abe, my ass. And as far as the KKK is concerned they had another flag and then the people they stole it from took it back so they were left with nothing. We were down so they took our flag. Different set of people. Different reasons for use of the flag. Jaqualine was using the flag for the right reason. She was using it for the War Between the States. when the union rapped the confederate wives, lied to our kids, and burned our houses. Silent tears would fall but we stayed strong and kept fighting.
Goof balls, are we? i think you just got schooled by a twelve year old. Who is the goof-ball now?
I think she has every right to wear this to any place she wants...technically! She is obviously very proud in her heritage what is so possibly wrong in this!! I proud of her for having the guts to show that she is doing this for herself and not for the snotty society that has no idea what they are talking about! GO U!! (And she is wearing the battle flag not the stars & stripes flag, there is quite a deference between the two!)
naaaa...I’ll simply just say “Bite Me” Yankee.
Well, Friend: Looks like your Trouble-making compatriot has been ZOTTED!
Sounds like you know didly squat about southern heritage.
I wonder if you would have had the same sentiment if the results at Gettysburg would have been different, and Lee would have cut a swath through the whole state of Pa.?
It is considered desecration to wear a United States flag as an article of clothing. It ought to be the same for the flags of the CSA.
And Jennifer and her date both ought to say no on occasion to the twinkies, hohos and second helpings.
