    Officers maybe but take a look at the shoeless Confederate soldiers in the war and tell me they were fighting for a noble cause.
    They were too far from home to desert so they stuck with it.
    And did an amazing job at it against superior forces.
    You fight for your buddies.

    Why the convictions? Because the victors write the rules. Except, interesting enough, the insurrection we are talking about in this thread.

    This is actually worse. The swastika had meaning independent of the Nazi usage. The "independent" usage here is actually part of thing people are criticizing.

    Jon Stewart said that Southerners hang onto the Confederate Flag like some hold onto their fat pants after losing weight.
    Low and behold several are talking of secession.

    You ever been shot at?
    Never said anyone lacked "patriotism"
    When your ass is in the shits there are no patriots.
    That is TV stuff.
