Do some research on the confederacy and you will find that slavery was NOT the biggest issue they were fighting for. Why shouldn't decendants of confederate soldiers be proud of their ancestory?They fought to protect their own and to keep the goverment out of their homes.Somethings they were wrong about other things they were spot on. Sadly these things aren't taught.

I agree I don't find it offensive at all or racist. Although some do. Comments have been made to him about it. But I think it is freedom of display;speech; or what have you. Which I think our country is losing- a bit at time. More people need to stand up for their rights and what they believe in. I know the history of the confederacy and it wasn't all about slavery or abuse as has been taught or passed through generations. The flag has gotten a bad rap and people who use the symbolism as a racist trademark are wrong and need to do their own history lesson.

if you're going to make comments at least give reasons why you feel this way. By not doing so makes you look ignorant.

First of all he's not a confederate. People that fly these flags are stereotypical racist. They are kinda slow and closed minded. They all like the same things. Like big dodge diesels and car harts and deer antlers. Not knocking those things but, they jus like whatever is redneck trendy. I can like any of those things but they only like cause there redneck slow closed minded rednecks. Have no clue about the world outside if there own. There display if the flag they rep is racist person that can't think outside of there own reality.

so you basically have just described rushville and pretty much all of central and southern Indiana and over half of the U.S. To me that's more racist than flying a flag to be honest.

. Ummmm Maggie please re-read your comment. You seem to be very close minded and full of bigotry. I don't own 1 Carhart article of clothing, Definetely don't drive a diesal truck, or any truck, am surely not racist. I DO however support the Confederate flag and the right to display it. You see when the confederacy was taken so were ALOT of rights. Slavery is and always will be horribly wrong. The right to take care of and defend your family and home was taken away with this also. Of course I am sure nothing that is said here could change your slow closed minded opinion though. I can tell you feel everyone deserves equal rights so long as YOU agree with them.

it's really scary how unintelligent the vast vast majority or people on this site are. It's pointless to try to explain anything to them, you might as well be talking to your kitchen sink.

Yes it really is sad how unintelligent people are. So sad that instead of researching and studying a subject they just regurgitate what they have biasedly been taught. With so many years of this type of brainwashing I guess we can't expect people to think for themselves. Hmmmmm judgement at its finest being past here. If you display the Confederate flag you have to be slow and a racist? There's a couple speaking out of both sides of their mouths on here.
