I Am the Confederate Battle Flag

I am the Battle Flag
of the Confederate States of America.

I am a proud flag.
I have led great armies to great victories.
From tall masts I have saluted,
And been saluted by,
The ablest generals in history.

I am a potent symbol.
I have the power to stir the blood
Of those who carried me in battle
Though that blood be continents away
And generations removed from those battles.

I am an honorable flag.
Do not use me for ignoble purposes.
I am a symbol of pride, not arrogance.
I represent love of homeland, not hatred toward anyone.
But no matter who carries me
Or for what purposes, I cannot be dishonored.

I secured my honor in a hundred battles
Where good men dying passed me to good men still struggling;
Where we prevailed against almost impossible odds;
Where we were beaten by overwhelming numbers;
Where I was as bloody, torn, tired, and soiled
As the men who carried me.

I am a worthy flag.
I have stood watch over the graves of patriots.
I have comforted widows in their loneliness.
As a blood-stained rag I have been passed as a rich legacy
To the heirs of those who had lost all for my sake.

I am the Battle Flag of the Confederate States of America.
Do not forsake me.

Just makes me mad when those hypocrite idiot liberals distort history to fit their agenda , and the younger generation, who can't get off their ipods and facebook long enough to learn history, believe their bull (Please excuse my language, I'm a bonehead). :x

Unfortunately, the winners of war, get to dictate the "facts" about the war. Check and see what the federally ran public schools have been teaching about the civil war now for......well, ....since there were public schools.

People trust the schools teachings and except it as fact...kinda like some other b.s. things they teach that i wont get into.

Adolf Hitler knew the tactic well...he stated numerous times.."If you tell the people a lie long enough and loud enough,, ,,they will begin to believe it"... Seems ol "honest Abe" didn't get pinned with that sarcastic name, for no reason.

Think about this....if you teach kids they are nothing more then a dumb animal, and have no higher authority to inevitably answer too, dont you think they're gonna start acting like.....well, like people do today?

Doc and Amak, I agree with both of you. Dumbing down has become so easy. Now there is a controversy at Gettysburg about whether or not to allow the showing of the Confederate battle flags at the re-enactments. Really, do you reckon there might have been some Confederate flags being carried during those battles. I think PC has been taken to a level that is beyond stupid and it is being allowed.
