    It always surprises me when people say "you should not be flying that Mexican Flag if you're an American!" then, hoist the traitorous Stars and Bars over their trailers.

    To be honest, it all depends on the venue. Flying it, in lieu of the American or State flag would be considered unpatriotic and quite possibly a display of overt racism. Simply displaying (not flying) the flag COULD mean the above or it could be simply of be a slightly-in-your-face expression Southern pride.

    Yes they are, very.  Some are traditional, and do not care for the yankee flag, but you can most definitely be a patriot flying a rebel flag.

    I think so. I do not question the patriotism of Texans who even fly all six flags under which it has existed. That is part of their heritage, and they are right to be proud of it.

    No. Good Americans don't conspicuously associate themselves with the failed rebellion. To pretend that failed rebellion wasn't about preserving slavery, preserving a system in which Negroes were legally less than human, is to willfully deny historical fact. The leaders of the rebellion were very clear and very public in stating that this was exactly what the insurrection was about. 

    Good Americans may seek to put this position into historical context, to avoid the error of faulting 1860 people for thinking as 1860 people rather than as 21st century people. But Good Americans oppose, rather than support, the Confederate stance.

    The real Confederate flag or the Confederate battle flag? Someone should tell them the war is over and they lost.

    No. They are patriotic to a now defunct country.

    Yes. They are Americans who have been let down and left behind by the Globalist trade policies of the Democratic Party.

    They terrorize anyone who dares think of flying a communist flag.
