Hazzard Flag

Growing up as poor white Yankee trash, my first exposure to the Confederate battle flag was the Dukes of Hazzard.

Of course, as a youngster, I had no idea the significance of the flag, or the appellation “General Lee”. I just saw some dudes -who were clearly the good guys- sticking it to the Powers That Be…


…and driving an impossibly awesome car (-with a horn that played “Dixie” no less).

(Alas, I was also too young to appreciate the tremendous… talent that Catherine Bach brought to the show.)

And it is in this gallantly rebellious spirit that I know many view the Southern Cross. As Ace put it, it often means “fuck you”.


We still need a “fuck you” sign. It’s a shame that the rebel flag carries so much baggage.

I guess there’s Gadsden…

    I’m in the same boat as you when it comes to the Dukes of Hazzard, right down to being too young to appreciate Catherine Bach’s assets. Fun fact: the General Lee’s doors were supposed to be welded shut so I had to chuckle at the bottom pic. I’ve seen another one like it but I’m not sure if it was from the same photo shoot or a different one.

    I’m not sure if this is going to work, but if it does……..
    Is this a hate crime?

    It does not carry baggage. It has been assigned baggage.
    (Trivia: Name the 4 slave states in the Union)

    Forget Gadsden, liberals will eventually call for it to be banned on the grounds
    that signifies dead, white slave owners. Your spoof has a better chance
    surviving the PC onslaught!
