Today on Instagram someone asked me about the flag commonly called the Confederate flag.
I thought I would share my brief answer to him here on my blog as well, to add my voice to those who love our heritage and want to see it preserved.
The short version of the flag’s history is that is was one of many battle flags flown during the civil war. It was never the national flag of the Confederate states, but was quickly adopted by many because it was easier to distinguish in battle than other flags and it features St Andrew’s cross.
St. Andrew’s cross was an important symbol to the Scotch-Irish population of the South who had retained much of their culture and heritage from that region, including the accent we know as a “southern twang” which is actually just a variation of the Scotch-Irish accent.
The flag is important to many people for different reasons but for me it symbolizes a continuation of the independent American spirit which was quickly lost by the globalist North (I see Yankee culture as an early form of globalism). And because it shows the importance of America’s Christian and British Isles heritage and founding.
I also fly it because, as a native born Southerner, my ancestors fought and died to keep us free. That red color is the blood of my people who fought the Lincolnite traders who have ruined our nation.
