Before anyone corrects me, I know it's technically called the "Battle Flag of the Army of Northern Virginia". I work in the vernacular. :)

Bro, you trying to get on my nerves? Good comic!

-The Stars and Bars needs to come down and stay down. More Americans died to see that done than in any other war before or since, and IMHO any reverence towards that rag is borderline treason.

-I too cheer for the submariners in Das Boot, not the criminal nation that sent them to their deaths. Those who willingly go beneath the waves are part of a brotherhood that bows to King Neptune's trident first before any national standard. Because everything else is a target.

That's a good way to look at it (for both your points)!

"Borderline"? I am still surprised that thing lasted through the super hyped-up "patriotism" of the 00's. About time we start tearing it down.

And excellent comic, sir. I normally don't reply to others' comments, but I had to.

Prof, I've said this in a cutesy way a bunch of times before, but this time I mean it: you don't understand the power of the Dark Side.

That evil symbol has kept people--white and black--in line for a long, long time. Look at the initial reactions from the majority of Republican presidential candidates, saying it was a "states' rights" decision in the wake of Charleston. People are still afraid.

I remember growing up, my friends and I would refer to it as the KKK flag. I just always assumed it was a white supremacy flag.

It wasn't till I was older that people tried to convince me otherwise. I still call it the KKK flag.

For me, it was always the "Dukes of Hazard flag". I was too young to understand the Civil War, slavery, white supremacy, etc.

Symbols mean different things to different people. I get that. But when it's such a NEGATIVE meaning to so many people... and heck, that's putting it mildly. Slavery is abominable.
