Listening to Lynnyrd Skynnyrd, however, is still regarded as a class one felony hate crime toward one's ears.

It's my first-amendment right to call anyone who supports flying the flag of a defeated enemy of America a traitorous, racist sack of shiat.

You don't understand the First Amendment.

LIkewise.
Any uppity southern assholes should remember that advocating for a violent overthrow of the united states is a bozo big time no no and punishable by death.

You lost the war, STFU about it, you racist pricks.

That's Lynnyrd Skynnyrd with four "n"s. I prefer Lynyrd Skynyrd with two "n"s, the well-known southern rock band.

At least the confederate flag is symmetrical. I love the USA, but our flag is kinda lame.

It's not really Lynrd Skynrd anymore, but more of a Skynryd cover band.

That's not the Confederate flag anyway. It's the battle flag of the army of northern Virginia.

People get too worked up over shiat like this.....symbols are all they are. The peace sign was originally designed for the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament in 1958. The swastika dates back to ancient India and literally meant "being with higher self". People love to hate...and haters love to get you twisted.

Yeah

But you know you could fly the REAL Confederate flag and not get any where near as much flak for it since hardly anyone knows what it looks like.

Also any one know why they said they fly the Alabama flag? They did some recording in Muscle Shoals but aren't they primarily a Florida band?

Oh just admit you didnt know how to spell it, asshole.

I like Skynyrd...can't quite call myself a fan. "Saturday Night Special" has a great intro.

Yes, well as I said, we don't have "Free Byrd" by Lynnrd Skynnrd, and perhaps to save time I should add that we don't have "Flea Burp" by Skynrrd Lynrd, the famous Welsh band, nor do we have "Flee Burb" by Linnerd Skinnerd spelled with four Ms and a silent Q.

Someone just figured out that, by trying not to piss off people that didn't like them already, they ended up pissing off the ones who did.

I am actually a fan of Skynard, but they are dead. These guys are SINO (Skynard in name only).
 
2012-09-24 03:08:53 PM
So??? If you were already a fan of the band, you didn't care about the flag anyways. If that flag prevented you from enjoying their music, please pull the stick out of your ass. If you weren't a fan, it just gave you one more reason to not like them.

Ummm - I'm not a history major - but I think you'd be hard pressed to find someone who could claim their heritage was free of treason, bloodshed, and slavery. And, if you could, it'd only be because they came from a long line of losers who got their asses kicked constantly.

Good luck finding a clean copy of the original album version in all the lame covers by suck bar bands and poorly recorded live versions on youtube.

Pretty much this. Northern people's heritage includes all of that as well.

Derp sells. Ask Charlie Daniels, Hank Jr, and Ted Nugent. Should've known they wouldn't do anything sensible now.

I know they're down to like one original member & Ronnie's brother, but weren't they liberal in the 70's?

Fark_Guy_Rob: Come'on - it's a kick ass flag!


Yeah.... Aesthetically, I do think the Confederate battle flag is more striking. I kinda wish that after the war, the North would have seized it, adopted it as the spoils of war, and gotten rid of the asymmetrical Stars-and-Stripes. I love America (as much as I can love a country, anyway) but I have always thought our flag was a clunky-looking thing that appeared to have been designed by a guy named Frank who thinks wearing striped shirts with plaid pants is also fashionable and well-matched.

There are just better ways to do stars, stripes, and bars. Damn those racist southerners for actually having better design sense in this one case. I think the Confederate flag must surely have been designed by the one gay rebel.
