Glad to see some place holding their ground in this PC shitstorm. The Mississippi flag has stayed unchanged for 121 years. If it was that important to be changed, where was the outrage for the last century, to change it now is just to appease SJWs.

While I am iffy about a state government using the flag of a different country, if any state can, it's mississippi. They've had the confederate flag on there for a while. They aren't georgia who only added it to protest the civil rights movement.

Fully agree. Flags don't cause problems, people do. If a flag offends you, then you offend me by being offended by a flag.

Good. They shouldn't have to just to save some hurt feelings. It's definitely not something I would ever use or promote, but I see no reason to change it or not allow others to use it.

Americans don't have the right not to be offended.

That said, if anyone dies from hurt feelings then I believe the Mississippi council should send flowers to their grave.

We have one, a plague of liberal faggots destroying civilisation from the inside out.

Fuck. Your upvoat count is so disappointing. I thought Voat would be Reddit without the censorship. Turns out, the only people who migrated from Reddit are just a shit load of bigots, morons, and radicals.

I'm against these SJW assholes, but you're even worse. Shit like this just galvanizes their stupid shit.

Not a big deal leaving it up. If someone in the state are offended then they should move away. People being offended is honestly ruining this country. Let people do them and just leave them the fuck alone.

I don't think it's "being offended" that's ruining our country, it's the fact that anyone that gets "offended" can bitch and moan enough to get entire state symbols removed. These same people tried to dig up a confederate grave because it was "offensive" and the state wasn't "taking care" of this issue fast enough. Fuck 'em, every last offended one of them.

I think the bigger issue is, it's their OFFICIAL state flag. If they want to change it, have a vote, have a design contest or what not and redesign the flag to be a more modern representation of the state. If the state chooses to keep the current flag, then too bad for the people who are offended.

We actually had a vote over the Mississippi flag about 12 or 13 years ago. We voted to keep it. This should be a settled issue.

I'd love to see a poll with someone showing people the British Flag, and then asking people if they think its appropriate to show this "confederate flag" in public.

It did take them until 1995 to ratify the 13 Amendment.

The People of Mississippi will vote on it in a few years it sounds like. Let them choose.

Alabama state motto ("Thank God for Missisippi.") is perpetually on point. Good job, 50th in the nation.
