Head on down to Pulaski, Tennessee during their big rally. I guess most of them illiterates cant read the bylaws. the klan waves the confederate flag very openly. They have ruined a proud symbol of the south.
I drove by a kkk grand wizards house for yrs on my way to work every day. guess what he had flying in front of his house? yep, stars and bars.
I personally have know several klan members all of their memorabilia has the confederate flag on it in some way. i don't know if its in their rules to not use the flag or not, (I really dont care) but they clearly do.
I have nothing against the flag, Im proud to be from the south. Ill never wave that flag or allow it in my house. I have made employees take off caps and change shirts because of the flag.
Fact is the their use of the flag makes people question if your a racist or not. I hope no one ever has to question that about me.
All that being said the guy has every right to fly what ever flag he wishes. If folks dont like it, shut up and dont vote for him next term. Ain't America great?!?!
