The South takes the Confederate flag down and puts it in their dirty laundry. South: Okay, okay.
Indelible skid marks.
Probably, but at least it won’t be the state or local government that officially supports it anymore.
Interestinly, before the civil rights movement, the Confederate battle flag was rarely seen in public. Once the fight for civil rights became a reality, the flag came into frequent usage to protest equal rights.
^^ Yeah flown by the Democrats fighting AGAINST Civil Rights Acts.
If they want to continue their “Heritage” they could fly the Confederate Flag NOT the Confederate BATTLE Flag; there’s a difference. And the backlash is stupid…they announced they were no longer making the General Lee model kits because of it.
Segregation forever!Everyone separates the coloreds from the whites doing laundry. Wouldn’t want those Klan outfits turning pink.
Good cartoon, Toles.Now lets think about guns again.
Would that it were as simple as the cartoon; I’m not at all sure some idiots in the legislature don’t dig in their heels.
This is all just a big distraction. Racist idiots will continue to use the Confederate flag to incite racial division whether it’s flown at government locations or not. The way to take away its power is to co-opt the symbol. Fly it at NAACP meetings. That ought to piss off the KKK types.
I see a few daring politicians are about to join the 20th century………..
Lincoln was a great Republican. Today it would be the Republicans who would assassinate Lincoln.
Let them. I don’t mind bigoted morons displaying themselves as such. Let’s just not give it state sanctioning.
It’s a humongous, childish display of “you can’t tell us what to do, nyah nyah nyah!”.
Slightly Inaccurate.There is no Rope to raise & Lower that flag.It is fastened in such a way that you need a very Tall Ladder or a Cherry Picker to get to the Padlocked Chain fastening it to the Top of the flagpole..
