usually waved around by idiots that are attention whoring more than anything. it basically means PLEASE DEBATE ME OVER STUPID SHÏT. subtle racism is some kind of cute game to them.
Therein lies the sole purpose of the tinderbox.

I'm not saying that there isn't someone out there doing it, just that I haven't seen it.
If this is really just a half assed attempt at equating the Confederacy to racism, then I just have to say I expect better from you, homey.
I'm more offended by the Tea Party adopting the Gadsden flag than I am anyone flying the stars and bars. If you want to have a flag symbolism discussion, we could start there.
Like CoW said, the US flag symbolizes a lot more negative than the Confederate one.

I still maintain that arguing over symbols and how much hate is or isn't magically contained therein has to be one of the dumbest ways to spend one's time.
then you vastly underestimate the power of nuanced interpretive symbolism in today's image-driven society
