Given that the Confederacy was antithetical to the entire notion of the United States of America — they went to war against the U.S., remember? — how can anyone in their right mind fly both flags on one pole at the same time? This is patently ludicrous. Which side are they on? It can’t be both.
Every time I see a Confederate flag, I can only think one thing: Why is someone advertising, “I’m a loser!”
