Dukes of Hazzard star and Georgia congressman Ben Jones (Cooder) is fuming over what he says is an attack on the Confederate flag.
Former Dukes of Hazzard star and Georgia congressman Ben Jones is fuming over what he says is an attack on the Confederate flag.

In a lengthy, all-caps post on his personal Facebook page, Jones — an actor who served four years in the United States House of Representatives from 1989-93 — defended the flag's use, calling it a "symbol that represents the indomitable spirit of independence."

His post came on the heels of word that the consumer products division at Warner Bros., the studio behind The Dukes of Hazzard, will no longer license replicas or vehicles model kits based off the TV show that feature the Confederate flag.

Good for him. thumbs
"God forbid we should ever be 20 years without such a rebellion. The people cannot be all, & always, well informed... If they remain quiet under such misconceptions it is a lethargy, the forerunner of death to the public liberty... Let them take arms... What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots & tyrants. " - Thomas Jefferson in 1787

Living right in the middle of Georgia for 42 years, I can say that I'm kind of over the whole rebel yell, them and us, if the south would have won we have it made, only good Yankee is dead Yankee redneck mindset. The south lost.
We can say the war was over Slaves or the North fearing if they lost the South their economy would tank. Channeling the Hilldabeast here, 'What difference, at this point; does it make?'
It doesn't, what matters is to make sure history is remembered, not to aspire to resurrect it and repeat it. Education can do a lot to solve our problems, so people aren't offended at every turn. With education comes enlightenment. Though you can't teach mental illness away. The young man that took those people's lives had a twisted mind, something the Confederate Flag had zero to do with. He attached himself to "it", not the other way around. I see the flag on one side of the coin, as a symbol of a period of time that's romanticized, yet one that can never exist again. On the other side, a symbol saying, get some, make me, over my dead body and a pile of other southern good old boy stereo/archetypes. All which are negative. Don't get me wrong, I'm proud of where I'm from. I just know the history behind it.
Makes me wonder what the schools are teaching kids, like evolution. Evolution teaches that species evolve to better cope with their surrounding world.. White people are the newest latest greatest version of the human yet! As whites evolved last. Sorry just musing. Though that thought could have been in his head... Yes, American Culture is a mess all the way around.
Much like the terms people used for the Japanese in WWII right up to N word, the Flag will always be there, just not flying on Government property and I'm okay with that.

To breakdown the Civil War to be only about slavery is incredibly ignorant. It dishonors the hundreds of thousands of Americans who lost their lives on both sides. Unfortunately, that's all most Americans think it was about.

You can disagree with the Ideologies of opposing sides that lost wars throughout history while still having respect for the dead. They were human beings who fought for their people. Most of them were not evil. They did what they thought was right. They did their duty. The soldiers and their families made incredible sacrifices. Most of them were pawns and it was politicians and tyrants who were responsible for their failure. We shouldn't celebrate them but their deaths should be respected.

We shouldn't try to erase their lives from our history.

And the LORD spake, saying, "First shalt thou take out the Holy Pin, then shalt thou count to three, no more, no less. Three shall be the number thou shalt count, and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shalt thou not count, neither count thou two, excepting that thou then proceed to three. Five is right out. Once the number three, being the third number, be reached, then lobbest thou thy Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch towards thy foe, who being naughty in My sight, shall snuff it.
