“Not hate, Heritage” and other lies.

Speaking of course, of the Confederate Battle Flag. The “Southern Cross”. Rejected as a candidate for the United States Flag due to its Religious implications (two of the three crosses on the flag, the cross of St Andrew and the cross of St Patrick, half of the four crosses on the Union Jack British flag) being very uncomfortable reminders of the Christian-on-Christian multi-million counts of Murder which led directly in to the Revolution, and in the confusion of battle and especially the thick smoke from black-powder muskets, pistols, rifles and cannon it looked too much like British regimental flags.

The local Wreligious Wrong who dispute the notion that there was any dissent among the “founding fathers” over what Bush called “the bridge between Church and State” gloss over that bit. Truth gets in their way so they ignore it.

Then in the American Civil war, it still was never the official flag of the Confederacy and got to be the Battle Flag simply because it didn’t look like the Stars and Stripes in the aforementioned Smoke from the cannons. That and the Confederacy liked the Religious symbolism and the Racist symbolism (Scots and Irish were, after all, White, and the Rich Rebels wanted to convince the Poor Rebels that they were carrying on some Great Celtic Traditional Struggle) embraced by people who were convinced politically and religiously that there was nothing wrong with Racism or Slavery. And the official Confederate flag, the Stars and Bars, DID look a whole lot like the U.S. flag under battlefield conditions.

Kind of the forebears of the Retardican Tea-Party types who claim that it’s not Hatred of anybody,  just, you know, the natural superiority of the White Race entitled them to hold the Darker races in slavery. Not that the Darker Races were inferior, you know, it’s just that the White Race is better.

See, that kind of “logic” pans out among the Tea-Party type of Mental and Morally Deficient Socially Retarded Animated Sphincters.

So what got me going on this, and really, Southerners acting stupidly and claiming that ALL (real) Southerners are as stupid as they are is a Pet Peeve that’s so familiar to me that I feed it and give it a name, and take it to the vet regularly…

Aside from the Racists of the Tea-Party waving it around and claiming it to be the Flag of Freedom (unless, you know, you happen to be a Slave in which case you’re not Human to their eyes so you don’t count)

Some Retard in the parking lot of King Soopers had a bumper sticker (nothing unusual about that) but this one had the POW propaganda flag along with the Confederate Southern Cross and saying “This Flag would never have left you behind”.

The POW camps run by both the Confederate and Union Armies, for instance, made the worst examples of Nazi or Communist prison camps pale by comparison.

For another “for instance” the North VietNamese actually released the American POWS.

So the POW flag and the Confederate flag being used in conjunction with each other, along with the absurd antics of the Tea-Party wanting to reconstruct the Worst Episodes of American History… creates not merely a double or triple error in twisted logic, but a growing mælstrom of spiral disintegration of Logic that threatens to overwhelm the very nature of Intelligence and Reality, an Event Horizon if you will, so concentrated and dense a Mass of Stupidity that it will suck the entire Universe into a black hole.

Or, a happier possibility, the entire Tea-Party movement might just collapse under their own stupidity.
