Gawker on The Confederate Flag touting fireman
Though Neo Confederate flag apologists claim that the Confederate flag symbolizes "rebel music from the South" not everyone is buying this extremely stupid argument. Gawker recently posted a very succinct response to the serious incident in Pine Hills, Orange County Florida where a fireman left an axe with the Confederate Flag outside the home of a Black resident who's house had been on fire. The ass wipe whom left the axe just happened to be the son of the assistant fire chief and we are not shocked to report that he was suspended without pay for a whopping 12 hours. That is the deep South for you.
How reassuring to read that the majority of those on Gawker don't support the Confederate Flag or make asinine excuses for it like the vast majority of the Rockabilly community. Despite our pessimism and sarcasm the media in Florida took this very seriously as should any media outlet. Far Right openly racist websites like American Renaissance have supporters who fully support the Confederate Flag as a symbol of "White Nationalism and sovereignty."
Bottom line: The Confederate Flag is a RACIALLY CHARGED SYMBOL overwhelmingly embraced and defended by white supremacists. Wearing and displaying it is not about "simply being a rebel" and it sure as hell is not about "coming together and listening to music at UK weeknders."
