I wonder what they would have said if the Confederate Flag was flown above a US flag?

What's even more awesome is having a tramp stamp of the Confederate flag

tonkin: What's even more awesome is having a tramp stamp of the Confederate flag

I'm from Georgia, I went to Ole Miss... but had I been getting down and flipped a chick over and found a confederate tramp stamp, I'd walk away mid-coitus for a dangerously hot shower. Blue-balls be damned.

You went to ole miss? My brother was a kappa sig...I've been to many a party there.

Oh, and I we kicked your ASS in rugby when I played for USM.

Missouri wasn't a confederate state. These kids are both stupid AND ignorant.

Pardon me, chaps, but can I trouble you for a what-what?

CrotchBeard: Missouri wasn't a confederate state. These kids are both stupid AND ignorant.

The best part is that they tried to tie it into the part of the assembly where

another student was singing "The Yellow Rose of Texas" to commemorate the Spanish-American War and honor Texas

while apparently not realizing that took place 30 years AFTER the Confederacy. So double-plus ignorance points for them.

They sent more troops to the South than the North.

At my high school, some kid painted the top of his car with a confederate flag, "Dukes of Hazzard" style. I think he was suspended for like... three days.

White people are nuts.
 
2006-02-03 04:48:42 PM  
These dudes deserve the ass-kicking they will soon be receiving.

On the other hand, I find it eternally amusing that anyone would fly a Confederate flag for any reason. It is the ultimate "unpatriotic" symbol, and the banner of humiliated losers.
 
2006-02-03 04:48:59 PM  
Well... I... guess that is a culture. A stupid, hateful culture, but... a culture. I guess. Sort of.

Is this seriously headed for a greenlight? If so, I'd like to order one of those "Oh geez, not this shiat again" pics, stat.

Failing that, can we all just skip this thread and go to this thread or this one or this one or . . . you get the idea. How many times a year do we have to have the same friggin' argument?

"No, there aint going to be no riot," Vaughan said.

Best quote I've seen all Friday.

Also, am I the only one who noticed that the General Lee's passenger door was open in DarthBrooks pic. WTF?

As many as it takes until you get it right. It's the only way you'll learn.

Classy.

Geez guys, you lost. Get over it, ok? You were crushed under Sherman's bipolar, Grant's drunken and Sheridan's short-guy complex-having brogans. You were obliterated. Innumerable cities were razed, your property taken from you and your entire lifestyle upended by Federal forces.

Don't make us send the 7th New York out to settle this dispute because this time we aren't going to give you Sumter and Harper's Ferry.

Same thing happened 11 years ago at a pep rally at my high school. IN NEW JERSEY. Idiots nearly set off a race riot.
 
2006-02-03 06:13:46 PM  
The kids are both stupid and ignorant, but not because they think Missouri was part of the Confederacy. Without the presence of *massive* numbers of Federal troops, Missouri might well have seceded. Popular opinion was, shall we say, mixed on this issues of the day. The democratically elected governor and was pro-secession, as was the state militia, and only intervention by Federal troops and an allied mob prevented the Federal armory from being turned over to the Confederacy. Missouri was the only "northern" (above the Mason-Dixon line)state to allow slavery, and there was plenty of conflict over that issue(some spilling over from Kansas)

That said, these dipwads should be beaten upside the head with a two-by-four and told, "Ya'll lost. Get over it."

2006-02-03 06:14:52 PM  
Ok so we can support all other belief systems except those that offend you and Missouri was split in the cival war.
 
2006-02-03 06:15:16 PM  
"Hickman High School"? This shiat just writes itself.

entebbe: The kids are both stupid and ignorant, but not because they think Missouri was part of the Confederacy.


Maybe not as stupid as you think...

Lanman said he and his friend waited until "The Yellow Rose of Texas" to unfurl the flag out of respect for the other cultures being celebrated at the assembly.

Texas was.

Lanman, reached by phone after the assembly yesterday afternoon, said he and fellow student Kevin Meyers meant to "show Southern pride."

"Me and Kevin, we dont believe in slavery or anything else that goes along with the symbol," Lanman said.


Good job showing pride in things which you do not believe in.

what?

Its just a flag. Its just a school.

A very learned flame bait, indeed. Bravo, good sir, I must bite...

Pfft, the Yankees rocked so hard it took 4 years take Richmond? You'd all be playin' banjos and eatin' grits if it wasn't for those damn cigars...

Multiculturism - where you can celebrate any culture but your own!

"Its just a flag. Its just a school."

It's just an apostrophe.
 
2006-02-03 06:21:10 PM  
Unfurling the stars and bars was no more rediculous than having a "multicultural assembly" at the school!
 
2006-02-03 06:21:34 PM  
Multicultural assemblies are a joke, but that doesn't excuse the assclowns from a beating.
 
2006-02-03 06:21:52 PM

I for one think this is hilarious. The whole arab cartoon controversy has got me thinking, we just need to start pissing off everybody and anybody we can. So people can get used to being pissed off again. Political correctness has stunted us as a species.
 
2006-02-03 06:22:51 PM  
"It's just a flag."
It's a symbol of a war which killed more Americans than any other in history, which was fought over the right to opress another ethnic group. It'll never be just a flag.

Hmm, they go out of their way to tell us that Lanman is white, but are curiously silent on the other student.

I mean, yes, odds are he was white, too, but... suspicious.
 
2006-02-03 06:23:41 PM  
Yet another piece of evidence that people in the South are getting even dumber.
 
2006-02-03 06:23:57 PM  
Okay, so when celebrating cultures we're no longer allowed to celebrate any culture that offends anyone at the celebration. As it is people are so ignorant of the real causes of the civil war that people think the stars and bars stand for slavery and men in white robes. Yeah, let's keep people as far in the dark as possible. The South was evil little hitlers and the North was the virgin Mary, sure. It's that black and white. History is written by the victors, not to be true, but to bolster their position.

Ever heard of Robert E. Lee?

"Unfurling the stars and bars was no more rediculous..."

Spelling ridiculous with an "e" is no more ridiculous...
 
2006-02-03 06:25:05 PM  
The South is a culture, much hated on fark, and the best symbol for it is the confederate flag. It is no more inherantly racist than the US flag. Must we remind ourselves that the civil war was NOT started by any sort of abolitionist movement?
 
2006-02-03 06:25:17 PM  
One of these names is not like the others. Can you find the name that is unique?

Ryan
Xavier

The Mexican American war took place around 1844 and that's around the time when Texas came into the union, the war was actually over Texas's land. The spanish american war was much different, happened in 1898, and involved Teddy Roosevelt kicking some ass.
I call shenanigans on this.
 
2006-02-03 06:25:20 PM  
...which was fought over the right to opress another ethnic group.

Are we gonna have to argue about this again? Really? This is like saying we started the revolutionary war over TEA instead of TAXES.
