    The media is more focused on whether the shirt was appropriate rather than the violent mob beating. On Friday, numerous Kenwood High School students in Baltimore, Maryland physically attacked a fellow classmate for wearing a shirt with a Confederate flag on it, students say. A video of the apparent brawl, wherein multiple students are seen assaulting a classmate as a teacher unsuccessfully tries to break up the mayhem, has since made the rounds on social media.

    There are photos of young Hillary Clinton wearing gaudy striped pants in 1969. There are several candid photos of HRC in several poses. In some versions of these photos, a rebel flag, the Stars & Bars, appears on a bookshelf in the background. In other versions, the rebel flag does not appear. Question: Was the rebel flag photoshopped INTO or OUT OF the images? Clue: Look at the shadows in the group of four images on the PBS website. Each space where the rebel flag does not appear has different shadows. Compare this (conservativetreehouse.wordpress): with this (pbs.twimg.com):

    A New Orleans school principal has been "removed from campus" after a photo emerged showing him standing at the Robert E. Lee statue in front of a Confederate flag. Crescent Leadership Academy superintendent Tracy Bennett-Joseph confirmed Monday (May 22) that Principal Nicholas Dean was removed from campus. She said the school's management was investigating. "With the recent events in the city it is important that this matter is thoroughly reviewed," she said. Dean said he did go to the monument Thursday evening to take photos as rumors circulated of the statue's imminent removal. Mayor Mitch Landrieu had the statue of...

    JULY 17--But who will care for all those Confederate flags? The North Carolina man who responded to the South Carolina church massacre by further covering his property in the rebel flag was arrested and jailed this week on a probation violation charge, records show. Edward Lee West, 69, is locked up in the Nash County jail in advance of an August 5 court appearance. Seen in the adjacent mug shot, West was collared Wednesday afternoon. According to court records, a judge issued an arrest warrant for West after he failed to show up last week for a court hearing on...

    A new Twitter campaign called #NoFlaggingChallenge is encouraging people around the nation to shoot video of themselves ripping Confederate flags off their poles and posts, and then put the film on the Internet for the world to see. Some are predicting the campaign – which basically urges people to trespass on private properties – won’t end well. “This #NolagginChallenge is going to end badly,” wrote one Twitter used, Twitchy found. And another: “PLEASE DON’T do this stupid #NoFlagging Challenge. You could get shot! No joke people are crazy enough to shoot you for it!” And a third: “please please be...

    Former Virginia Sen. Jim Webb, a southern Democrat contemplating a run for president, encouraged people on Wednesday to understand the “complicated history of the Civil War” when calling for the removal of the Confederate flag across the country.“This is an emotional time and we all need to think through these issues with a care that recognizes the need for change but also respects the complicated history of the Civil War,” Webb wrote in a post on Facebook.Responding to the shooting in Charleston last week, the governors of South Carolina and Alabama have called for the removal of the flag off...

    I know I haven't been very active lately. Part of this is because the news is so unceasingly bad all the time that I simply must take breaks to keep from giving in to despair. But here are my thoughts on the implicit connection between two current raging headlines. In all but outlawing the rebel flag and all things Confederate, the Left is intentionally pushing buttons and trying to create a conflict. I understand how angry FReepers are, but I have read posts by FReepers saying they will now fly the rebel flag instead of the American flag (the Charleston...

    It's the capture-the-flag you never saw coming. In a shrewdly mapped play, South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley's (R) call to remove the flapping Confederate rebel jack from state capitol grounds suddenly prompted an entire party to reverse course on the issue. And after years of happily whistling political Dixie as part of its mad racial plan for Southern domination, the Republican Party backed away from this in an unprecedentedly humble about face. If presidential hopeful and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee was calling it a non-issue on Sunday, there's now a good chance he might find a convenient backtrack moment...

    The General Lee – Bo and Luke Duke’s vehicle of choice from ‘The Dukes of Hazzard‘ – is a classic and instantly recognizable Hollywood car. But it’s about to get a little less recognizable as Warner Bros., the studio that owns the theatrical, DVD and licensing rights to ‘The Dukes of Hazzard,’ has decided to remove the confederate flag from all future versions of the car. The news has reportedly been floating around the hobby community over the past few days as ‘Dukes of Hazzard’ collectors became aware of a new regulation. A collector on HobbyTalk.com was told by a...

    MEMPHIS, TN - (WMC-TV) – A Mid-South teen is banned from prom for wearing a dress that resembles a confederate battle flag. "It wasn't done to offend anybody," Texanna Edwards explained of her dress. "It was done just for the sole fact that I just wanted a rebel flag dress because I thought it was cool." But the principal at Gibson High in West Tennessee did not think it was cool.  Edwards, a senior at the school, tried to wear the dress that she helped design to the prom Saturday night.  She also wore a rebel flag necklace. "He told...

    An Anderson County student suspended twice this fall for wearing items with the rebel flag on them has filed a federal lawsuit alleging that school officials trampled on his constitutional rights. The lawsuit on behalf of Tom DeFoe, a senior at Anderson County High School, and his father, Phil DeFoe, was filed Monday in U.S. District Court in Knoxville. The teen's rights of free speech and equal protection have been violated by crackdowns on a vague county school dress code, the complaint states. Tom DeFoe was suspended from Anderson County High School in late October for wearing a T-shirt with...

    Is Sen. George Allen a racist? Who? If you mention George Allen outside Washington and Virginia, most people don't know who he is. Yet the spin machine trying to cast Allen as a racist — as prequel to his presidential candidacy — already is operating at full throttle. Thus, before millions of Americans are able to match Allen's name with his face, they'll likely be able to link his name to the label — racist. The fact that the mudslinging has begun so early — while Allen is busy running for re-election to the Senate — confirms how seriously opponents...

    On a weekend pilgrimage to this town that was once the center of massive resistance to desegregation, Sen. George Allen (R-Va.) said he believes a congressional resolution expressing remorse for slavery would be a "powerful, worthy" idea. Allen, who is running for reelection while considering a 2008 presidential bid, was in Farmville over the weekend as part of a racial reconciliation trip organized by the bipartisan Faith and Politics Institute. Also participating in the pilgrimage was Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga.), a leader in the civil rights movement. Allen pledged to work with Lewis to build support among colleagues and the...

    Sen. George Allen, who has tried to reach out to minority voters in recent years, wore a Confederate flag pin on his shirt collar in a high-school yearbook photo, a national magazine reported yesterday. As a high school student in Palos Verdes, Calif., Allen was seen riding in or driving a Ford Mustang with either a Confederate flag license plate or Confederate flag imagery on the car, The New Republic quoted witnesses as saying. The Virginia Republican, seeking re-election now and weighing a presidential bid in 2008, was to depart today to co-host a civil-rights history tour for members of...

    Travelers on I-75 have a new diversion to break up those long drives to Florida. “Need a laugh?” beckons a billboard overlooking Exit 212 in Locust Grove, south of Atlanta. The sign directs motorists to the Tanger Outlet Center, where they’ll find the Foxworthy Store — an emporium devoted to Atlanta comedian Jeff Foxworthy and his buddies on the Blue Collar Comedy Tour. The store’s clever T-shirts, humorous hunting paraphernalia and novelties are built around Foxworthy’s “You might be a redneck” shtick — everything from camouflage camisoles for the ladies to a “redneck jack-in-the-box” that pops out of an outhouse....

    Two Hickman High School students disrupted a multicultural assembly yesterday in the school’s auditorium by unfurling a Confederate flag from the balcony. Ryan Lanman, 17, who is white, and a friend enacted their plan while another student was singing "The Yellow Rose of Texas" to commemorate the Spanish-American War and honor Texas. After the disruption, the students involved were told to leave, and the assembly continued, Principal Mike Jeffers said, adding that he couldn’t talk about whether the students would be disciplined. Lanman, reached by phone after the assembly yesterday afternoon, said he and fellow student Kevin Meyers meant to...

    No Rebel rousing: Clinton High forbids Confederate flag at tonight's game 2005-09-02 From Staff Reports Clinton High School officials have asked Maryville fans to refrain from bringing or waving any Rebel flags at the two schools' high school football game tonight. Kickoff in Clinton is at 7:30. While the Maryville Board of Education this summer adopted a ban on the besieged flag at its home games, Rebels fans lustily waved the spirit symbol during last week's 41-21 win at rival Alcoa. Clinton officials made the request in an effort to honor the school's heritage, according to Dragons athletics director Jim...

    The Maryville Board of Education voted on second reading Thursday night to ban flags, including the long-standing Rebel flag, from school-sponsored events. About 75 people attended the meeting with 10 audience members speaking both for and against the policy. The event safety policy bans ``noisemakers, flags, laser-pointers (lights), sirens, whistles, portable stereos (e.g. CD players and tape players), banners, horns, handheld signs and implements (e.g. poles, sticks and wires to support flags, banners or other such items at any school sponsored activity.'' The policy addresses other areas including abusive language, harassment/intimidation and taunting. ``Any action or speech that might reasonably...

    Lawyer Kirk D. Lyons got married 15 years ago in a traditional Scottish ceremony, wearing a kilt as he walked down the aisle to the strains of bagpipes. Like most traditional weddings, the ceremony was held at the bride's church and paid for by her family. But this church, the Church of Jesus Christ Christian, was located in the Aryan Nations compound in Idaho, where the father of the bride was second-in-command of the white supremacist group to Richard Butler, who officiated. A former leader of the Texas Ku Klux Klan stood as best man. Those nuptials, along with Lyons'...
