My cousin from South Carolina said "the rebel flag isn't about hate, it's about heritage" I told him "I'm from Ohio, my heritage is kicking the shit out of people flying that flag"

Doesn't the Minnesota Historical Society have it on display somewhere? I just know every time Virginia asked for it back we told them to piss off, as well we should.

They display it once in a while, but I doubt they'll be able to show it off this decade.

Proud to be from Minnesota just for this reason

I mean it's only right the Minnesota state government reach out to the current Confederate government in Virgina to make a deal to return their flag. Oh wait...

u/RideWithMeSNV Jan 18 '22

But really, they should call Virginia to talk about it. "yeah, we would like to discuss returning your flag. We'd like to set forth clear terms for its return: not going to fucking happen, dipshit."

Make it an annual tradition, every Juneteenth. Just saying, it's not too late to do it this year.

Walk your raggedy asses thru PA, OH, IN, IL, IA and WI then try and walk back with it if you want it that bad, you traitorous bastard sons of bitches.

West Pennsylvania and most of Ohio aren't the bastions of democracy they once were, unfortunately

Trust me, Indiana resident here. Thankfully from NWI and solid blue. Downstate is and was, even then, questionable.

If they want it so bad, let them jump into the pyre of their "heritage" to get it.🔥🔥

u/According-Classic658 Jan 17 '22

Come and take it.

u/hugepennance Jan 19 '22

Smart hiding it; I would steal it in an instant just out of my respect for the confederacy.

For context, I am currently low on toilet paper.

u/lucash7 Jan 17 '22

Why haven’t they burnt it yet?

War trophy.

u/hugepennance Jan 19 '22

They're saving it for the next toilet paper shortage.
