No Place For The Confederate Flag

Americans shouldn't honor the flags of traitors.

The current flag of Mississippi contains the confederate flag on a background of the bars and stars confederate flag. Until this century the Georgia flag contained a confederate flag. The current flags of Georgia and North Carolina have backgrounds containing portions of the confederate bars and stars flag. Flags of the confederacy or one of the confederate states are the flags of traitors and enemy governments.

Flying any of these flags or a flag that honors them is disrespectful of the United States, its Constitution and its citizens. 

Some Southerners call the Civil War the War of Northern Aggression. This is untrue. The Confederacy started the Civil War when it seceded from the Union and attacked Fort Sumter.
