You stop being racist and I’ll stop talking about it.
OK let me break it down, there were 3 official flags of the Confederate States of America. The first was the Stars and Bars that had a Blue Canton with one White Star for each State (varying from 7 to 13) in a circle, superimposed on a field of 3 horizontal Stripes- Red, White, and Red. That one was used from 1861 to 1863. The second was the Stainless Banner which had a Canton based on the Battle Flag of the Army of Northern Virginia superimposed on an all White field. That one was used until spring of 1865 when they added a broad Vertical Red Stripe opposite the Canton on the field because several officers complained that it looked too much like a White Flag of Surrender. The last one is called the Blood Stained Banner ironically.
So these jackasses are not only racists, they’re morons.
This week’s guests-
Seth MacFarlane will be talking about Ted 2 which you might like if you liked Ted. It strikes me as a total waste of time and money not just for the audience but also everyone involved including craft services.
