The Truth about the Confederate Flag 9/20/01

I got a letter some weeks back about women and shoes. In fact, that was going to be my next Truth letter--until we were attacked, that is.

Then, there was that last Truth--which was a nice touching piece with the exception of a tasty little tangent about Confederate Flags and the dumbasses who fly them.

And--of course--that was the part that got the most attention.

You are a fucking idiot who can burn in hell. there is not a damn thing wrong with the confederate flag. You are a fucking pussy. I bet you are against the death penalty too. An about bombing the arabs, I hope we do. Did youo not see them on tv celebrating after their people destoyes the WTC. I hope we kill them and every single one of them and their familes BURN IN HELL.

Rebel Flag

Finally, some hate mail. It's been far too long. I love it.

Let's break it down. I love breaking it down.

You are a fucking idiot who can burn in hell.

Can't argue with 'idiot.' And, if you believe in that sort of thing, I am definitely burning in Hell. Let's move along.

there is not a damn thing wrong with the confederate flag.

There is, in fact, nothing wrong with the Confederate Flag--so long as you're a racist who thinks slavery is a-okay. Does the Confederate Flag stand for anything else? To anyone? Then please tell. I'd be fascinated to hear it. I did read one person stating that it wasn't about racism, it was about a way of life. Uh-huh. So's the Swastika.

You are a fucking pussy.

If 'pussy' by your definition means someone who tells racists to go fuck themselves, then I am indeed a pussy, and proud of it.

I bet you are against the death penalty too.

Nope, I'm all for the death penalty. In fact, I think it should apply to a greater percentage of criminals. Child molesters, for example. These people should be put to death. There's something wrong with their brains that we simply can't fix. So, wipe 'em out.

Racists, on the other hand, should not be put to death--as it's my experience that most racists grow out of that shit once they get a little older and a little smarter.

An about bombing the arabs, I hope we do.

I believe that about you.

Did youo not see them on tv celebrating after their people destoyes the WTC. I hope we kill them and every single one of them and their familes BURN IN HELL.

Yup, I saw it. And it pissed me off mightily, let me tell ya. It still pisses me off. But by the same token, you can't judge an entire people by it's lowest common denominator. Do you want to be judged by the same yardstick used to measure the dumbest/sickest whites you know? Those cheering morons don't represent the general population of Pakistan any more than Confederate Flag-waving hicks represent the general population of America.

Let's take the ideology of racism to its only logical conclusion, shall we?

Okay, all Arabs are bad. They--as a people, and with every single one of their race in agreement--destroyed the Twin Towers. All Arabs are bad. We hate Arab people!

Blacks are bad, too. Wasn't Malcolm X black? Didn't he make statements after JFK was killed about the violence of whites coming home to roost? And didn't African Americans--as a a people, with every single one in agreement--stand behind him? All black people are bad. We hate all black people!

What about King George? Didn't he try to keep a budding American under his thumb, and cause the deaths of thousands of patriots? All English are bad. We hate all English people!

The Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor. All Japanese are bad. We hate all Japanese people!

The Jews killed Jesus. And what's more, they just have too damned much money, if you ask me. All Jews are bad. We hate all Jewish people!

White America lied to the Native Americans. And we're not talking one or two isolated incidents, here. It was national policy. It was on the President's personal daily agenda for about a hundred years. 6:30 am: Breakfast. 7:00 am: Lie to the Indians. Not to mention the fact that White America not only produces more serial killers than any population per capita on the planet, but we also choose types like Jerry Falwell to be our spiritual leaders. Jerry-fuckin'-Falwell. This guy's not even close to spiritual leader material. He should be behind the counter of some general store in the deep south ... a general store that displays a large Confederate Flag ... spouting hatred for homosexuals to toothless patrons buying bait. All White America is bad. We hate all White Americans!

Which leaves us where? Should we kill us all? Nuke the entire planet? Let the cockroaches take over? Sounds great.

Except I hate all cockroaches.
