Muvico’s Confederate Flag
It annoys me when people want to use the Confederate/Rebel flag to express their “heritage” or “Southern pride” despite it being offensive to a lot of Americans. Sorry, defenders, but your banner has been co-opted by hate groups. I’d let it go.
On that note, it also annoys me to get upset over EVERYTHING and the politically correct police have to wade in. There’s still a history lesson to learn here and you can’t erase the ugly parts. Muvico’s theme for their lounge or whatever was on the Civil War. There’s an American flag on the mural along with the Confederate flag. Just one problem…the battle flag used WAS NOT the flag of the Confederacy. I think Muvico should have used the flag…or one of them…adopted as the official flag of the Conderate State of America, and gone with it. Of course a lot of people would have gone “huh?”.
