"Nobody seems to care that I am offended."
Your hangout site of choice is called "Niggermania". You've long since forfeited any privileges of whining about being offended.

Dude... the only people who can offend others are those prepared to be offended in turn. You fail the latter, ergo you forfeit the right to the former. Besides, racism is completely unacceptable in this enlightened time-- is there a reason you can't just call them blacks or Africans? No, it's always straight to the N-word with you racist bastards.

"Confederate Flag is a sign of rebellion and individualism. Fact."
The right to be free... ( to own slaves ).
Ok, technically the civil war was not about freeing slaves in existing states, rather it was about whether slavery would be extended to new states or restricted to its existing territories.
By your own admission the Confederate flag is the flag of traitors. Traitors who just happen to be racists.

If you fly the Confederate flag and don't want to be labelled a racist then STOP FLYING THE CONFEDERATE FLAG! I'm tired of the "heritage, not hate" bullshit. Do you look like a white supremacist? Fuck yes. And that's your own damn fault.

When we were studying the Civil War in grade school my teacher put a Confederate flag outside the classroom door but it was taken down when people complained

The Confederate Flag is a sign of treason and failure. Fact.

I'll be honest. I too am offended by those flags. Seriously, let's get some color coordination. He's obviously on a mission to make every nation fabulooooous.
4/19/2011 11:36:07 AM
Southerner speaking, here.
The Civil War was about slavery. Even the argument of "States Rights" is misleading, since the South wanted the right to abolish slavery to be decided at the state level as opposed to at the federal level.
Look into the history of the flags of an African, or any predominantly black, nation, and you'll find out just why those flag are those colors; each color is symbolic of that nation's spirit or history. As an aside, does complaining that the colors just shouldn't be together comes off as in of fashionista-flaming gay to anyone else?
And this fuckwit loses the right to any offense, seeing as he's put a racial slur into the name of one of the greatest figures in this nation's history.
All this said; I do own a Confederate flag, but do not display it. It's an artifact, for lack of a better word, from an ancestor's unit during the Civil War.

"Boofer"...sounds like a euphemism for gas.
*pbbbbtthhttt* "Oops! Scuse me, I boofered."

I don't run this site, so I don't make the rules. But it seems to me that this particular category should exclude any entries from either Niggermania or Chimpout.
It's too easy and posting quotes from those sites isn't fair to the other billion or so sites on the Web.

"Nobody seems to care that I am offended, except my fellow NM's."
Welcome to the United States of America. You know, the country that kicked the Confederate States of America's a** at the end to win the Civil War? You don't have the right to never be offended, even if you are a white person.
While I can understand some people owning a confederate flag much the way Power Skunk does, it's idiots like you, MartinBooferKing, that can't move on and want constant reminders of how the South was when blacks were forced in an institutional, inhumane, and subservent position called slavery, while whites, no matter how dumb, lazy, and/or unethical some might have been had all the legal and social privilage given exclusively to them.
Yep, those were the "good ol' days" when dumb, lazy, and/or unethical white supremacists didn't actually have to compete with other races for jobs and social status or have any actual real skills to use to make the climb up. You racist people just can't handle competition, can you?

HERITAGE, NOT HATE! FUCK YOU NIGGERS AND YOUR NIGGER FLAGS!

What the heck is a "boofer", anyway?
(I'll have to look that one up)

MartinBooferKing asks, albeit rhetorically, "When are the niggers going to move on?" But surely, shouldn't Martin be asking God that question? Since God gave the OK for slaves from Africa to be there in the first place, even laying down some easy-peasy requisites for slave ownership? As you can see, God's nothing if not helpful. I'll even help you Martin, as well. All you do, is the following:-
1) Place your hands together in prayer.
2) Close you eyes and lower your head, alternatively, open your eyes and stare at the ceiling.
3) Reverentially intone:-
"Dear Lord, we thank you for allowing us to have slaves from Africa. Since you in your good grace, O God, were instrumental in allowing us to fulfill our slave-owing ambitions, do you know when the niggers are going to move on? I appreciate you taking the time to listen to my humble question and I'm very sorry to disturb your valuable cumulus-relaxation time. The only reason I ask is because your great works and your mysterious intentions offend me. Eagerly awaiting your answer. Thanks in advance O Lord. Amen"
4) Whine like a deplorable racist wank-stain.
5) Praise the Lord for disregarding your request and enjoy the ensuing mockery.

Oh damn,a racist is offended.Boo-fucking hoo.

When are southerners who display the confederate flag going to move on and realize that the South is never going to rise again?
And regardless of what the flag originally stood for, it is now a symbol of hate. Just like the swastika was a Hindu symbol for the sun and then was taken over by the Nazis and used as a symbol of hate to this day, the Confederate flag is used by white supremacists today. So if you object to the Confederate flag being referred to as a hate symbol, take it up with the white supremacists.

The Confederate flag is an obvious rip-off of the Union Jack. Not original at all.
4/20/2011 11:28:52 AM
Oh, the war itself wasn't about slavery. But the indignation towards the Confederate flag in modern times comes from the declaration of support for the Confederate platforms of:
A) Dividing the Union apart which will piss off Americans of all stripes. Borders would be disconnected or redrawn which alone would result in another war.
B) Relying on slave and immigrant labour to prop up the economy without the pesky formality of giving them a piece of the pie that won't starve them. Wasn't the driving force of the South, but it sure was a loud rallying cry.
C) Breaking off all ties with current allies as they are 'dirty foriegners' and 'manipulators' which is economic suicide to say the least.
D) Obliterating all changes and amendments to laws and legal rights made after the Declaration of Independance including the original Constitution. In the time when that flag waved on the battlefield even those documents would not be spared.
Any living American will be ruffled by at least one of these things, and Humans will by nature assume that you believe the one that pisses them off the most.
But speaking of moving on... that's a hundred year old flag and ideology yer sportin' there sonny. You think maybe it's time to just let your crushing defeat go?

"Nobody seems to care that I am offended, except my fellow NM's."
None of us care either.
4/21/2011 11:54:02 AM
Because you get offended for not being able to ofend other people for no good reason?. What a surprise!!!
4/25/2011 10:13:11 AM
@DevilsChaplain: I agree. I am so sick and tired of Confederate apologists and white supremacists screeching, "We're not flying this flag because we hate black people, we're just proud of our history and culture!"
WHAT culture? A culture that was built on the enslavement, dehumanization, and torture of human beings? What history? You mean, the brief period (less than ten years) where the South had its own government, formed exclusively on sedition and treason and endless whining about how those big, bad Northerners were going to keep them from treating people like cattle?
There is no way that that pitiful excuse would be accepted in Germany if a family there decided to fly a swastika flag. And if any neo-Nazi whined, "Why can't I fly my swastika flag in public? Why can't the Jews just move on already? Why can't they just accept that I want to venerate a symbol of the people who systematically murdered and tortured their ancestors because they were Jewish?", then I hope to God that that racist idiot would be treated with all the contempt that he deserved.
MartinBooferKing, you and your ilk are the ones who won't move on. Otherwise, why do you still cling to that stupid, outdated, and now-useless flag? The Civil War is OVER. Get over it already.
