The confederate flag is a controversial symbol. What it means has changed over time and can depend on who you are and where you come from. And to further complicate this, there wasn't just one confederate flag--there were dozens--and the flag we've come to know as the confederate flag has a history as complicated as it is contentious.

The Media and Government who are tied together have very cleverly misled many people into thinking that the Rebel Flag & The Civil War was about slavery . Before you comment on this video Read Your History . BOTH sides had slaves before and during The Civil War . General Robert E Lee commander of the Southern Armed forces "FREED his slaves" LONG BEFORE General Grant of the North . General Grant, commander of the North's Armed forces held onto his slaves LONGER than the Southern General Lee . What does that tell you about the North, and your understanding about how things were back then ? In the very beginning slavery was an acceptable source of acquiring manpower in society from the time of the Pharaohs of Egypt, some 2000 years prior to, and leading up to The Civil War in America . The Civil War began when The South Seceded from the Union . The South Seceded from the Union and printed their own money . They did this because the North (Washington DC) severely raised TAXES on Southern Farmland which was extremely disproportionate to taxes paid by the citizens of the North . In short Washington DC's politicians were bleeding the South with unfair "sky rocketing" Tax Rates and would not listen to reason . In addition the NORTH tried to TAKE AWAY THE RIGHT for States to Govern themselves. To this day, The Right of States to Govern Themselves is a cornerstone of American Government. That's why The South Seceded ... That's why The Civil War Began ... And That's why The "Rebel Battle Flag" was Born . Later on in the War, as so many Soldiers died, Freedom was offered to any Slave willing to fight for either side when the War was over by BOTH the Northern and Southern Governments . KNOW OUR HISTORY before you comfortably fit This Battle Flag into your respective political narrative . Times and ways of life were so very different back then . The facts are documented in our History books . The North and the South were ending the practice of slavery long before The Civil War ever began . The Largest slave owner in North Carolina in the beginning of The Civil War was a black man, not a white man . That fact alone should tell most people how wrong their understanding of how things actually were back then, and how wrong they've been about The Rebel Battle Flag . That Battle Flag Was and will ALWAYS be used to push back against an unreasonable Government . The Government fears that Flag because it was the symbol of Rebellion in a Time where people stood up to their Government with "checks and balances in last resort" to correct our course . The Colors are intentionally the SAME .... "Red, White & Blue" The "X" configuration means STOP ! And in Times where all branches of Government inevitably collude to Rule instead of Represent ... who conspire to nullify the checks and balances provided by The Constitution Of the United States .... and believe they have somehow become Royalty ... We The People, with that Rebel Flag will provide the "checks and balances" to correct the course again . I love my Government and my Country, The United States of America. Thanks for watchin' ................... WILD BILL .
