    This was taken at a homecoming isn't it sweet.
    Can you just imagine what Chesty Puller would say.
    It was staged.

    I know that. And it was discussed heavily among PA types.

    They were staged events designed to make front pages. They weren't spontaneous.

    Yep, better not get caught using a flag that has been adopted by white power groups.








    I feel that once a black fella has referred to white foks as "honky paleface devil white-trash cracker redneck Caspers," he's abdicated the right to get upset about the "N" word. But that's just me. -- Jim Goad

    We see staged nonspontaneous homecomings on TV about every other week.

    No bubble involved. I was just anticipating idiotic nonsense over here by people like Bailey. You'll note that he's as predicable as nightfall.

Now, if some troopies is posing with a rainbow flag in the middle of a vicious Islamist state, well, let's just say that if I were his commander, I'd be explaining that the Muslims don't particularly care for such things and that he's just made himself a target, and maybe he'd like to think again before doing something that stupid.
    We don't let other people decide what the Confederate flag mean, especially hostile panties in a knot people. You will note that on that website I linked to that the Confederate flag is also displayed in Iraq and Afghanistan. I suppose it could be a photoshop as well, but I don't recall hearing a barrage of crap from white trash like Tony Perkins about it.
