"The Tennessee Battle Flag was never a symbol of the "nation" of the Confederate States; merely an eye catching design that memorably symbolized a misguided mob of miscreants. It is long past time when it should be laid to rest among the memorabilia of US History, to be displayed only when the nation needs to be reminded of the vicious folly that underlies treating people as property and thinking that skin color defines human worth. "Never Again” should be our reflexive lament whenever it appears in public!”
—Bob Spencer 
NOTE: While being an American, I am not a nationalist. I recognize that what the current American flag has in common with the Confederate flag more than anything else is, ironically, exploitation, genocide and slavery. Keep that in mind when you think about patriotism.
