Confederate Flag Parade

On Saturday the town of Dalton, Georgia held a Confederate flag parade. Take it away Gawker:

“They got a goddamn day for Confederate flags. This is some bullshit!” says the (presumably black) man filming this video, “I wonder what kind of motherfuckin’ parade we could have?” And just when you’re wondering how long this line of assholes in lifted trucks can possibly be, and wishing something would make them stop… well, something does.

    If South’d won Civil War? Slaves would’ve soon been freed anyway, South would now be banana republic, & North the greatest civilisation ever

    • Craig Howell

      Except that the South would have allied with Nazi Germany in WWII, laying waste to North & South alike.

      • Câl

        If the South had allied with Germany in WWII, the Northern USA would have joined the war sooner, quickly over-run the South and got more involved in Europe years earlier. While there might have been more US soldiers and some civilians killed, the war would have ended a lot sooner with a lot fewer deaths worldwide.

      • Soren456

        Would have started earlier, like WWl.

    Enjoy it while you can assholes
    1) Dalton “carpet capital of the world” (they makes carpets…its not a lesbian reference…forgive me..I could not resist) is the home to a MAJORITY hispanic population now. they came there to work hard and make a life for themselves. Dont see them at the parade
    2) Dalton, an hour north of Atlanta, aint much of a town.its only in the small backwaters of the DEEP south that this will go on much longer. even here most people know their faces are on facebook, etc..and facial recognition software is used more and more by employers…just as we will not see KKK hosting public parties with ferris wheels (love that old photo) in a generation, this will look just as dated…and…extinct.

    • Gene

      demographics are destiny….(African Americans, Hispanics…white people who are not stupid..vs this lot)
      and its hard to reproduce little bigots if you keep dying in car accidents while trying to dip skool, find that Hank Williams cassette and open the keystone beer can at the same time.

          like sex in a canoe….Fucking close to water.
          .
          I am in Dalton twice a month or so. And, yes…Its a pit. Once, after meeting with an investment club whom I am the broker for, I was driving home and saw a man, his wife, and kid at a bus stop. it was cold, and they looked worried. I stopped and asked, in bad Spanish, “you need help?”. the baby had an ear infection. I offered to take them to the hospital..save some time. No huge deal. just being a mensch. The husband, Jesus, saw my business cards on the dashboard and asked for one. I obliged, but, thought nothing of it.
          A month later he and his wife show up at my offices, he in the boots and cowboy hat, she rather traditionally dressed, with their 3 kids in tow, and a styrofoam container with 30 pounds of frozen chicken as a thank you gift. He works at a processing plant. I was..so touched, and the looks on all the other peoples faces in my office tower were….priceless. I do business in Dalton…they are the ONLY people I LIKE in Dalton, and when I visit (we are friends now) HE has the decency to at least offer a PBR! 😉

          • Gene

            PS…I donated the chicken to the shelter I work with….Who the hell has freezer space for THIRTY POUNDS of frozen chicken?

          • Oh’behr

            That made my eyes tear up. You Sir, are a good man, Gene.

          • Gene

            thanks..your sweet. but, it was a small human kindness..nothing more. and, the friendships I made are wonderful…and…the looks on my Armani clad, southern white business associates faces as I took them to lunch at one of the “business” restaurants here in Perimeter was 100 times worth any small inconvenience (they DO look like they just arrived from Nuevo Neon, which, 3 years ago, they did. I thought I could not beat showing up at a WSJ sponsored event with a gay mainland Chinese husband on my arm for the reactions..but, I was wrong

            😉

            Great story. Thank you Gene.

            This comment made my day. Thank you, sir.

    • RoFaWh

      When a burg adopts the slogan “the <something> capital of the world” you can be sure of two things:

      1. It’s a small and unimportant place.

      2. There are many, many other places with a better claim on that slogan, but they have the common sense not to make fools of themselves.

      Shawnigan Lake, BC used to have at least three private schools and had a big sign as you came into town “the educational capital of the world”. Both points 1 and 2 were true.

      One of the schools is still in business, the Shawnigan Lake boys school, modeled on the English “public” schools; one folded and was reopened as a Bahai school; and one folded and is a Lions Club camp for disabled kids now (I think).

    All driving pickup trucks, many with oversized wheels which, as we all know, makes their micropenises bigger.

    • Gustav2

      Maybe they took their eyes off the road when they were trying to find their micro-hard-ons flying the flag was supposed to give them.

    • Giant Monster Gamera

      How many of them were also sporting Truck Nutz?

  • bkmn

    If the Confederate flag isn’t racist why don’t you see black people in the parade?

    I was waiting for both the drivers to get out of their trucks with their guns out.

  • MexicoTom

    Won’t someone think of the poor puppy?

    • Ragnar Lothbrok

      The puppy sounded VERY UPSET, and rightfully so.

      • MDB

        Poor little pupster, couldn’t take any more ugly !!!

      • delk

        Made my dog wake up and come over to investigate.

        • Ragnar Lothbrok

          Mine snored thru the whole thing.

  • ohbear1957

    One difference between Confederate Pride and Gay Pride: we have the good sense to wait until the parade is over before we rear-end each other.

    • barracks9

      Not sure why, but I suddenly remembered that lovely photograph of the drunk straight couple getting it on at the St. Patrick’s Day parade.

    • Belthazar

      LOL!

    • Bill Doyle

      Not only that, we actually can MARCH the length of the parade and still go out dancing afterward!

      • Ginger Snap

        Some of us in heels.

          SAAAAAAH- LUTE!!!

    • Craig S

      Agent: Thank you for calling Geico, would you like to report a claim?
      Racist: Yessum. Me and my boys were in this here confederate flag parade and Bubba done rear-ended me.
      Agent: I hope Bubba was using protection.
      Racist: Bubba don’t wear no pansy ass seatbelt.
      Agent: I hope Bubba enjoys his concussion. Have a good day.

      • GreatLakeSailor

        Agent: I hope Bubba enjoys his concussion. Have a good day.
        Racist: Hardda say, he ain’ actin’ no diff’rent then whut it is he usually does.

        • Paul

          Bubba got his first concussion the day he was born. Let’s say he got concussions many times as a child.

    • Todd20036

      “God don’t like ugly”.

      Could not have said it better.

      • MC

        I’m going to start saying that a lot.

  • MikeBx2

    Considering there’s only one thing Dalton Georgia is known for, I think someone needs to get a response on record by Dalton Carpet about this “parade”.

    • Gene

      most of the companies that run that industry are some of the most conservative in the whole nation. they probably would not give a damn…sad to say

      • MikeBx2

        I get your point, but Dalton Carpet is an international company and just like the conservative Walmart would not want to be associated with anything potentially racist.

  • TampaDink

    Something similar to this parade of shame took place in & near Tampa last weekend too. As far as I can tell, there was no schadenfreude to accompany that one.

    • TampaZeke

      That must have been the day that I saw a pickup driving around Temple Terrace flying a big Confederate flag from the truck bed.

      • Jonathan

        I saw one of those 2 weeks ago in Reno, NV. He looked exactly like all of the Bubbas I recall from N. FL. The flag was HUGE, waving out of his lifted truck bed and in the center was an assault rifle and the flag had “COME AND GET IT” emblazoned on it. I suspected he was a southern/Texan transplant.

        • Octavio

          Along the I-80 corridor many southerners have taken up residence because of the remoteness and scarce population. Lot of transplanted racists be there. Not to worry. They eventually move back where they came from because it costs a load of money to heat a single-wide in the sub zero winters of The Basin and Range.

        • charliebkk

          Probably on his way to Cliven Bundy’s ranch.

        • Oh’behr

          We get some of those in the north too.

          It usually doesn’t go over well with other locals. (At least in Minnesota).

      • TampaDink

        I’m away right now, looking after my mother but in addition to reading about the hate flag parade that began in Brandon, went through Ybor & to the courthouse downtown before proceeding to Riverview for a bbq (and probably a cross burning) it was also mentioned on Chris Hayes’ show on MSNBC last night when he was covering the redneck pile up in GA.

  • Wynter Marie Starr

    On my way into the bank today, an older man, assuming I was a bigot said, “What’s next, the American flag?” I don’t know if he was upset about marriage equality or the confederate rag, but I proceeded to explain that the confederate flag stood for racism and the rainbow flag along with the American flag stood for inclusion. I then told him he was an idiot to assume others were bigots because of their skin color or because of where they lived. He was sputtering in anger at the end and the people surrounding us were applauding me.

    I laughed at the jerks in pickups crashing. Sometimes there is justice. The confederate flag is an insult and one should be ashamed to fly it.

    • barracks9

      “God do not like ugly.”

      Yup.

      • Wynter Marie Starr

        I seem to remember that from The Color Purple.

      • Corey

        “Boom. I got all dat! Dayum”

    • Gene

      I sooo love you right now. 🙂
      thanks for that!

      • Gene

        tell him to move to the hill towns north of Dalton…he would fit in well

    • TampaZeke

      I can’t tell you how many times bigots say stupid racist, homophobic or anti-liberal things to me assuming that I will agree with them; ESPECIALLY when they know that I’m from Mississippi. They always get a rude awakening when I tell them, with a full Southern drawl, what idiots they are; complete with charts and graphs.

      • Gene

        same here TampaZeke. And, sadly, bigots in OTHER parts of the nation, knowing where I am at (GA) with my accent (which I thicken up for some clients…some love it, some don’t) ASSUME I share their prejudices. they think they can say what they normally would not..and I hear NASTY SHIT from Bostonians, people from VT…the Bay Area…there ARE more bigots out there than I would like to think…sad to say 🙁
        I HAVE told some of them off. if what they say is especially egregious. most, I just say..”I (pause_ just wasn’t raised to say such things”. Their embarassment is enjoyable.

        • TampaZeke

          I’ve had the same experience. I can’t tell you how many times people from New England or California or other “liberal” bastions find out I’m from Mississippi and start foaming at the mouth about black people and gays. It’s amazing how bigots come out of the woodwork from all regions of the country when they assume that they’re in “friendly” company.

      • Wynter Marie Starr

        I always assume people aren’t bigots. If they prove me wrong, I no longer have anything to do with them.

      • 10_39

        We have a stealth Democrat to send to unobtrusively observe the bigots in their natural habitats. He is an older white man from Mississippi and sounds like it. He also has been known to wear his (used for deer hunting) camo cap as well. Amazing what racist things people will say when they think they are speaking to someone who shares their poisonous views.

      • ColdDesert

        On can easily assume I’m not a gay guy (I drive a Subaru so…Lesbian I suppose) and some of my favorite coming out moments have been when people make homophobic remarks to me and me shutting them down simply with “but you know I’m gay right?”

        • clay

          Two stories– I routinely do that being mixed race and the reverse– a guy at work people often assume to be gay (he has a southern drawl and wears pink socks) once answered someone challenging him for being gay that actually his pink socks actually meant his balls were bigger than the challengers would ever be.

          • ColdDesert

            One of my favorite podcasters, George Hrab, did a sketch on his ‘cast years ago titled “Gay or Southern.” It is a game-show style Mystery Date sketch where the contestant has to identify the person as gay or southern. It’s hilarious.

      • clay

        “charts and graphs” is this decade’s “twenty seven eight-by-ten color glossy pictures with circles and arrows and a paragraph on the back of each one”.

        Most of the time I don’t have to say anything,I shoot daggers out of my eyes.

      • helen s

        People are always, always surprised when they find out I am from Mississippi, And I promptly ask them where they’re from and then say “you know there are assholes from every state”. Most don’t get I am referring to them. 🙂

      • james_from_cambridge

        Nothing sexier than that deep South drawl attached to a hot, liberal mind 😉

    • People4Humanity

      There are few things sO satisfying as a proper retort.

      • Wynter Marie Starr

        Yup! Some people need to be schooled publicly.

    • LovesIrony

      It’s amazing to me how people assume others are as bigoted as they are. Recently in a grocery store some hard luck faced bigot had his cart in the middle of the aisle. I was patiently waiting for him to get what he wanted and move on. He saw me and said, “oh sorry” and then how he hates the way Mexicans block the aisle. I told him the only one I’ve seen blocking the aisle was a stupid bigot.

      • Wynter Marie Starr

        LOL. He hates others for what he himself does. Do these idiots ever hear themselves? I had a very close friend who never told people she was Jewish. She’d wait and steer the conversations towards people’s opinions on Jews. There would always be someone who was an anti semite in the crowd. This allowed her to know people’s true feelings. We became friends because I jumped on someone who started to say nasty stuff.

      • kanehau

        My reply would have been: So, you’re Mexican then?

        • Chucktech

          Or, “Funny, you don’t look Mexican…”

      • ColdDesert

        In the state where I come from, Utah, I hate the fat white Mormon mothers with their thirty screaming crotch goblins who run around on the loose underfoot while I’m trying to shop. Does that make me a bigot? Probably.

    • TreGibbs

      You are a whole barrel of AWESOME for speaking out.

      • Wynter Marie Starr

        Thank you. Brooklyn born and bred = big mouth.

        • barracks9

          If you ever find yourself in New Orleans, we need to grab a drink!

          • Wynter Marie Starr

            I’ll keep that in mind1

          • Gene

            Same for Atlanta, should you find yourself here, which everyone does eventually.
            Of course, down here most us think that if you’re good, and you die, you go to heaven.
            If your bad, and you die, you will go to hell. but, one thing is certain…either way, you WILL transfer at Hartsfield Atlanta International.
            😉

          • Wynter Marie Starr

            LOL, I’ve never flown into Atlanta, but I have been in the South. They were all perplexed when I ordered iced coffee and I was perplexed when I was offered grits at every meal. But, thanks! If I get down there, I’d adore meeting for drinks.

    • Clive Johnson

      Good for you! 🙂

    • JoeNCA

      “What’s next?” is a big giant billboard saying you have no argument against something so you must change the topic onto something else.

      • Wynter Marie Starr

        I took it as something a bit different. It’s much easier to stay entrenched in old beliefs and ways rather than change with the times. It reminds me of the court scene in Pleasantville. It’s bigotry with fear. Plus the knowledge that privilege is no longer an automatic based upon gender, race, or orientation. I agree that people like this have no argument and so feel the need to question what’s next to everyone in the hope that they will find another sympathetic soul.

    • Sk3ptic

      My favorite is when my (fairly rural) Texas patients say to me, “You’re so kind. You must be Christian.”
      I say, “Actually I’m Jewish,” or “No, I’m atheist,” depending on my mood. The gall–as if the only way to be kind is to believe in immaculate conception and zombies returning from the dead to atone for sins I have yet to commit.
      The reactions are priceless. And hopefully they learn something about assumptions along the way.

      • Wynter Marie Starr

        I’ve heard that a time or two. I’ll just tell them that atheists can be kind even if they don’t believe in any god. I like to think you’ve given them a little something to chew on. And maybe you’ve been able to open a mind or two.

      • Chucktech

        What they probably learn is how to change doctors…

        • Sk3ptic

          You’d lose that bet.

    • ColdDesert

      I can’t believe how many people there are like this “gentleman” who are so eager to immediately share their goofball views completely non sequiter. If I wanted your opinion anonymous passerby I would have asked for it.

      • Wynter Marie Starr

        LOL, some days I think half the people I see should be locked up.

  • TampaZeke

    Oh my FSM! That was frickin’ hilarious!

    I saw one of these hillbilly trucks driving around Tampa with a huge Confederate flag flying from the bed a few days after the Charleston massacre. Truly disgusting.

    • You changed your avatar! Cool!

  • oikos

    Of course the confederate flag is not racist.

  • BobSF_94117

    And here I was about to say that at least they could manage a good clip and proper spacing (a parade pet peeve of mine).

      I think they were afraid of being shot at.

    • Did you notice the crowd was dominated by older folks? If we can just hold it together another 20 years, most of those folks will be dead and the younger set who are racists bigots, and believe that LGBT folks are equal beings will be in charge and life will improve.

      • Daniel

        Well, sure, the hardcore outspoken bigots (of that stripe, at least) will die off. But Ted Cruz is 44 years old. Maggie Gallagher is 54. Tony Perkins is 52. Dinesh D’souza is 52. Jason Mattera is only 30. And there are many more where they came from.

        • True, but there will be less hard core racists and bigots, and that will make a difference.

          • Daniel

            I’m not convinced. They just talk prettier and quieter about it.

        • clay

          Tony Perkins is 52? Damn! I look good!

        Ryan T. Anderson is 33…

  • Timothy Kincaid

    I agree. God do not like ugly.

  • StraightSupporter

    Some of the YouTube comments complain that he cusses and then says “god don’t like ugly”. Well from my knowledge there isn’t much in the bible about profanity. The only part I know against swearing is talking about taking oaths. I’ve never really liked that people have no problem with “shoot”, “darn”, etc, but “shit” and “damn” suddenly it is a big deal. I hear people say that using such language isn’t mature. I’d go further to say making a big deal over the “oo” vs “i” sounds and other words isn’t really mature either.

          No, but I did have a sticker on there that said “I support equal marriage” with three icons, one MM, one MF and one FF. Just the other day I noticed someone had written “FAG” on the sticker. I couldn’t scrub it off so I removed the sticker along with some paint on the car.

            Oh man, those freakin assholes. Maybe we should get a kick-starter to get your car touched up. Seriously.

            So sorry about that. But thank you for your support! We need all the allies we can get.

            My car had paint spots peeling before I even put that sticker on there. I have to touch up a spot every now and then. I’ve already painted over the spot.

            I wish I knew when it happened, though. I may have been driving around with that for a couple months and just never noticed.

            It’s messed up someone did that. I mean, it would never cross my mind to deface a Jesus fish, political or church sticker on someones car. It wouldn’t even occur to me.

        HA! Makes me wonder what the combined IQ of that truck rally was.

    “God don’t like UGLY!”

    That says it all.
    It’s so “in your face. We have the same kind of ass holes in Central Valley with large gas guzzling pick-ups with huge “mercan” flags on them. The larger the flags/trucks the smaler the dick?

    All driving because they don’t have the balls like LGBT’S to truly show their pride. Oh and the lazy part too.

    …”This is the real Southern heritage. It is not found in Birth of a Nation or Gone With the Wind. It is found in a belief that for some reason white men and women are superior to all whose skin color is any different. There is no other separate Southern heritage except treason.

    It is a heritage that should cause them to writhe in shame. It is a heritage of the kidnapping, subjugation, forced breeding and selling of a free people. It is a heritage of treason and treachery. And hate.

    It is time they got over it.” – Just found this on the Daily Kos

    To be clear — I do not support, endorse or approve of the confederate flag nor what it symbolizes. HOWEVER, free speech is exactly that, and we must defend it for those whom we disagree. I thing their message is vile, but I must fight for their ability to express their views, just as our friends, families and allies have fought for us to express OUR views. That’s what it means to be an American.
