Here’s how someone feels about the people who oppose the flying of the Confederate flag:
If you are anti-Southern Cross, you are pro-racist.
Consider the following facts:
(1) There are at present several million Southern-born Americans today both here in the United States and across the world who honor the Southern Cross of Dixie as the living symbol of Southern identity, heraldry, and memorial for the Confederate dead. Of that number roughly 90% or higher display that flag in no manner advocating racial hatred or superiority in any way, shape, or form. And of that number, and perhaps more, tens of thousands of active defenders of Southern heritage who advocate for the continued display of that flag in all honorable forms.
(2) Every active Southern heritage group in America and across the world who honors that flag has members who actively oppose any hate group that wrongly misuses that flag as a symbol of intolerance.
(3) Corrupt civil rights groups like the NAACP, their political and academic allies across America condemn the display of the Southern Cross of Dixie as an outdated symbol or an outright symbol of hate and intolerance. They attack any and all public displays of the flag on public and private property and label all who do not share their views “racist” for failing to comply.
(4) Hate groups that advocate white supremacy like the Ku Klux Klan, American Neo-Nazi Movement, ect. clandestinely support attacks on the Southern Cross they misuse to create hatred and try to boost their membership. They too view the flag as a symbol of hate and intolerance.
To stand in favor of the positive display of the Southern Cross of Dixie as a true living symbol of Southern identity is to stand for the view that the flag should offend nobody. Under this view no human being should fear the display of that flag, or the people who honor it.
Under that view the misuse of that flag by hate groups is diminished.
To stand AGAINST the display of the Southern Cross of Dixie is to concede it to be a symbol of hatred and to stand for the view that the flag is offensive. That view creates misguided fear and prejudice towards all who display it regardless of their personal views, and it diminishes the concept of true tolerance.
Under that view the misuse of that flag by hate groups is exhausted.
To honor the Southern Cross of Dixie as a symbol of Southern identity is the fight for pride and respect for all Southern people.
To condemn the Southern Cross of Dixie as a racist symbol is itself a PRO-RACIST act in the modern 21st Century view.
