C/S but that flag's image is tainted due to the KKK. If they want to have "southern pride" they need to design a new logo...

It's election year. If Perry wasn't running for president, I'm sure he wouldn't have changed his mind but it's too risky to be type-cast at this stage.

For example, the Confederate battle flag has no more to do with the Ku Klux Klan than the Christian cross which the Klan carries and burns or the flag of the United States that the Klan says the Pledge of Allegiance to, yet the news media and Hollywood constantly try to connect our Confederate flag to the Klan in their propaganda. However, the news media never ask preachers if they are Klan members, because they wear a cross around their necks or link the American Legion to the Klan because they carry the U.S. flag. It is time to put an end to this anti-Confederate bigotry. It is past time that the truth was told. Hitler's tactic of "tell a big enough lie often enough and people will believe it" has been utilized to the fullest extent, to smear the Confederate States of America and her symbols such as the battle flag.

A burning cross is a sign of disrespect to Jesus Christ for sacrificing his life for to pay for our sins, therefore those who hold onto crosses are not seen in the same reference.

Nice try but FAIL!

The KKK uses the US flag when they march.

I guess we need to get a new US flag.

What's with "Our Confederate Flag"?? Never been my flag and never will be. In case nobody informed you the Confederate States of America tried to destroy this country and as far as I'm concerned they should put that flag on a roll so we can use it to wipe our collective azzes with it. The only place it has in our history is that it stand for the thousands killed while trying to overtake our country.......

Oh delusional one. The media didn't form this link. They did it themselves!

Klan from the North mostly marched with U.S., while their southern counterparts march with the Confederate flag. Let us remind you that the Confederacy was a treacherous sect who sought to tear the union apart through secession.

I say let them have it. The KKK didn't take up the Confederate flag until recently.

Should it not be American pride and not spither, northern, eastern, or western pride? The last thing we need is something that divides Americans rather than unite them.

No bubble bursted on my part, but you may want to re-read the article:

"Perry had remained silent on the controversy until telling reporters in Florida two weeks ago that he opposes putting the image on state license plates."

Remaining silent isn't actually against it from the start. Ever heard the term silence is confirmation?

"And if someone did not say it with words, he said it with facts, because there was not a single one who said he wanted Me alive, and to keep silent is confirmation of what others want."
