Jeez, a guy makes a typo in his post and you holier-than-thou-liberal asshats fall over yourselves ripping him apart for it.
Go back into your basements and continue your circle jerking.July 16, 2015 at 7:17 pm #12375missing_kskdParticipant
Yeah, I’m sure it’s a lot easier to live with the regular spanking you’ve got here when you picture losers in basements…
Too bad the reality is far different from that. “Those liberals” you are writing to here are accomplished people. Too bad, so sad.July 16, 2015 at 8:14 pm #12377skepticalParticipant
Meanwhile, I drove by the Jefferson Davis Memorial along I-5 in Clark county — the two flags flying have the stars and bars in them. Also, at the Rebel fuel stop — exit 27(?) south of Kalama, the confederate flag is still part of their branding . . . Is SW Washington a refugee area for misplaced Southerners? I mentioned this before, but Clark county looks like a place right out of the south. The area 78th street and St. John’s Rd looks right out of down home Alabama.July 16, 2015 at 8:50 pm #12380duxruleParticipant
You do know that the nickname is “Vantucky,” don’t you?July 17, 2015 at 12:16 am #12382skepticalParticipant
I do. Vantucky was my parent’s choice for us after spending half by childhood in Seattle. So it was goodbye KJR, hello KISN. When I turned 16, I split across the river for Oregon permanently — goodbye Dan Evans, hello Tom McCall. 🙂July 17, 2015 at 9:02 pm #12400DanOregonParticipant
Oklahoma’s civil war history is interesting. It wasn’t a state, but Indian Territory and the chiefs of the five main tribes aligned with the Confederacy.
Don’t know how that translates to today, or if there are still pro-Confederacy leanings among Native Americans there – I do know the state has a troubled racial history as documented by the Tulsa Race Riots of 1921.July 19, 2015 at 11:05 am #12422VitalogyParticipant
The KKK shows what “southern pride” is all about.
They say pictures say a thousand words.July 19, 2015 at 2:21 pm #12433Alfredo_TParticipant
Did anybody notice that in the the photo in the MSN story linked from the first post of this page, there are several Black people among the Confederate flag supporters? One of them is a man who is waving one of the flags.
I do not understand the motivation behind this protest, though I would not be surprised if these people sincerely thought that they were working to “reclaim” the good name of the Confederate flag.
