Glorifying Villainy

If you fly a Confederate Flag you are endorsing Confederate “Values” and the right to own Human Beings as chattel. This is what the Confederacy fought for when they broke from the country, these are Battle Standards flown by those who fought to keep slavery intact. It is not Patriotic to fly the Confederate Flag, it is an act of open rebellion and disrespectful to America. These are the Facts. This is History. The Confederate Flag is the same as the Nazi Flag and the ISIS Flag in that they represent the Evil in People. The Monuments dedicated to Civil War Villains gives Honor to the Evil in People. Should we glorify people who warred to own other people. The Answer is unequivocally emphatically NO.

Nothing To Be Proud Of

There is nothing to be proud of
If Southern Pride is dependent on the Confederate Flag
Do you see Germany clinging to the Nazi Flag?
So why are people to clinging to the “Bloodstained Banner?”
Do they wish to bring back the good ol’ days
When a man was chattel to be bought and sold
And have the flesh flailed from his back if he got uppity?

Rebel’s Requiem

Take down that disgusting dirty stained rag
There’s no place for the Confederate Flag
A Standard born of Racism and Hate
And ideals past their best-before date
The history of The Bloodstained Banner
That flew high in front of Master’s Manor
It’s been used as a symbol for the Klan
Dyed crimson with the blood of the Black Man
Plantation cotton made The Stars and Bars
To this very day we still bear the scars
The thread used to sew this flag of battle
Tied one man to another as chattel
It signifies the right to have a slave
It’s time to put this pennant in its grave
Let no songs be sung, rejoice and mourn not
The Civil War is over, the fight has been fought
It’s time now for healing, or all was for naught
It’s time to put the past in the past and in its place
It’s time for you Rednecks to join the Human Race
