Pajamas Media ^

Posted on 04/30/2007 11:06:27 AM PDT by PanzerKardinal

Saw this photo and thought - and thought - Hey that sign looks familiar

It's the Confederate Flag!

Wonder if the Dem's realize it?

I think this may be a subliminal advertising attempt to get Red Staters to think these monkeys are on their side.

Does it not look as if Harry Reid is pledging allegience to the Confederate Flag in that picture? What position did the DemoncRat party take following the Civil War? Were they not anti-Slave rights?

Absolutely. They started the Klan as well as participated in terrorist activities against freed slaves and Republican politicians.

The Copperheads were a faction of Democrats in the North (see also Union (American Civil War)) who opposed the American Civil War, wanting an immediate peace settlement with the Confederates. The name Copperheads was given to them by their opponents the Republicans, because of the copper liberty-head coins they wore as badges. They were also called "Peace Democrats" and "Butternuts". The most famous Copperhead was Ohio's Clement L. Vallandigham, who was a vehement opponent of President Abraham Lincoln's policies.

I’ll have to wait until I can get onto a different server. Our internet security software won’t permit access to that site. I’ll let you know what I think.

The Democrats are the party of the KKK, the Confederacy, copperheads, the trail of tears, Japanese internment, racial segregation, Jim Crow, Dixiecrats, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, and so much more...

That is priceless.

Place Mitch McConnell behind that same podium and he’d already be the EX-Majority Leader.

That’s because, historically, the Confederacy was made up almost entirely of Republicans, while it was the Democrats who won the Civil War and freed the slaves. I believe it was President William Jefferson Clinton in fact who signed the Emancipation Proclamation.

Of course, had the South’s President been a better military man instead of Republican Strom Thurmond, who knows?

That is very funny.

It wouldn’t surprise me at all if the similarity was intentional, as a way of gaining votes in the south...seriously.

Remember Howard Dean’s comments about wanting to get the votes of southern guys with gunracks?

Heh, heh. I’m sure it was intended as a subliminal message to motivate the redneck vote.

FYI - that's the Battle flag of the Confederacy.

Here's that last national flag of the Confederacy:

Does you remember the Republican convention where the Dems complained the podium “looked like a church” and was a subliminal message to the evangelicals?

I’ve also noticed since the rise of the blogosphere the Dems have suddenly started using flags in their logos. I guess they are trying to use Dean’s advice in “taking back the flag from Rush Limbaugh”.

That must be pretty hard considering their base is stepping on it half the time and the other half is just darned ashamed of it.

Re your post #17.
Your anti Southern rant is totally ridiculous. Were it not for the “Dixiecrats”, decendents of Confederates, etc. in the South moving over en masse to the GOP the Republicans would be under 30 Senate seats.
