Thread: US Marine Corps bans the Confederate Loser-Flag

  1. #1

    Default US Marine Corps bans the Confederate Loser-Flag

    Presumably because they think it's kinda embarrassing to be associated with the quintessential symbol of being humiliated for being fuckwits.

    "One day, we shall die. All the other days, we shall live."

    Why would they allow the flag of treason in the first place?
    Hope is the denial of reality

    Traitors are also sensitive snowflakes

    Petraeus chimes in:

    Them being traitors and losers should be enough explanation for their desire to rewrite history.

    The stag hunt has transitioned:

    "One day, we shall die. All the other days, we shall live."

    More pushback from the military:

    "One day, we shall die. All the other days, we shall live."

    I can't believe a Confederate battle flag was ever allowed on the grounds of any US military installation considering it's literally an enemy flag.

    It's also been incorporated into the state flag of Mississippi. I can't believe it's taken this long to challenge and change that.

    I liked Trevor Noah's suggestion for NASCAR: Allow the Confederate flag.

    But only the last car is allowed to fly it.

    But that driver just "retired" cause he didn't agree with the idea that his favorite symbol of racism wasn't allowed.

    Things are really coming to a head... Mississippi has decided to abandon the loser-flag, yet the left's attacks on the Founding Fathers continue unabated:

    "One day, we shall die. All the other days, we shall live."

    Really undermining that 'statues teach history' case there.
    The world on your shoulders, the love of your mother
    The fear of the future, the best years behind you
    The world is getting older, the times, they fall behind you
    The need, it still grows stronger, the best years never found you

    American conservatives are... morons:

    "One day, we shall die. All the other days, we shall live."

    To be fair, a lot of them probably don't realize history is a thing you can read about in books.

    Hey now. She might have just been going for the "big lie" and expecting her supporters to believe that "the libs" are targeting figures like Washington and Jefferson too, based on the slave-holder angle
    Last night as I lay in bed, looking up at the stars, I thought, “Where the hell is my ceiling?"

    There's even this thing called "movies" if reading a book is too exhausting.

    American conservatives are losing their shit because someone aparently melted down a statue of some traitor and the video was too funny or something. I think it's very heartening to see that ppl are finally deciding not to honor traitorous slavers, but I worry about the hurricane of whining about to be unleashed upon the online world.
