Classy, the official flag flown by the Confederate States of America as they waged war to keep things, such as slavery, intact. Nothing screams 'Merica! like a good old confederate flag.

When making statements like that, remember that "history is written by the victor".

All I'm gonna' say on the matter.

I know I know .. A lot of people's opinions vary on the matter, and its someones right to display whatever image they want on their vehicles, house, etc etc, so I definitely respect that.

Being a southerner and waiting to rise again I do like the tire cover. However you may be asking for vandalism from some unhinged yankee type. And it may not be limited to just the tire cover. Good luck! I am sure there will be some heated debates on this and you may be labeled as a trouble maker by some and a hero by others. And I will be lurking to stir the pot.

Actually, that particular flag design was rejected and never became an "official" flag of the Confederacy. It did, however, serve as Gen. Lee's battle flag.

The display of the Confederate flag is a highly controversial topic. It was largely absent during the Civil War. Rather, the Confederate flag was reintroduced in 1956, just two years after the Supreme Court decision Brown v Board of Education. It was considered by many to be a protest against school desegregation. It was raised at the University of Mississippi (Ole Miss) during protests against integration of schools.
Supporters of the flag view it as a symbol of southern heritage and the independence of the distinct cultural tradition of the South from the North. Some groups use the Southern Cross as one of the symbols associated with their organizations, including groups such as the Ku Klux Klan.
For some, the flag represents only a past era of southern sovereignty. Some historical societies such as the Sons of Confederate Veterans and the United Daughters of the Confederacy also use the flag as part of their symbols. Some rockabilly fans hold the Confederate flag as their emblem as well.
As a result of these varying perceptions, there have been a number of political controversies surrounding the use of the Confederate flag in Southern state flags, at sporting events, at Southern universities, and on public buildings. According to Civil War historian and native Southerner Shelby Foote, the flag traditionally represented the South's resistance to Northern political dominance; it became racially charged during the Civil Rights Movement of the 1950s and 1960s, when fighting against desegregation suddenly became the focal point of that resistance.
Symbols of the Confederacy remain a contentious issue across the United States and their civic placement has been debated vigorously in many Southern state legislatures since the 1990s. Supporters have labeled attempts to display the flag as an exercise of free speech in response to bans in some schools and universities, but have not always been successful in court when attempting to use this justification.

I think the first line accomplished just that.

My question is ... would a good old American flag, that displays 50 stars, not suffice with that saying?

Removed that last part

Where a person lives does not necessarily define the person. I live in a suburb of St Louis but grew up in a farming town in central CA. I also lived in the south (NW FL and AL) for better than 20 years making me as country as they come.

That said, I agree, the Stars and Stripes might be better to prevent those, whose opinions differ and have no qualms about defiling your new tire cover, from doing so.

I was gonna do a short history lesson on this but you beat me to it.

I see no problem with the tire cover or the flag, but those who go around looking for a reason to be offended will. I really dislike small minded people.

True story. I don't know too many people who would display that in this area.

I absolutely love seeing people express their first amendment to the fullest. It lets me know we still have some say somewhere still yet. And if anyone judges you based on your beliefs, shame on them.

People are just as entitled to have opinions as you are your rights. Your rights, and people's opinions, don't necessarily make things any more nor any less moral. It's definitely your right to proudly display what majority view as ignorance, and it's definitely others rights to inform you of this. That's the beauty of this country.

Isn't as much of a belief as it is the 'in' thing right now. I'm just across the river in PA and there's a pretty solid chunk of wannabe hicks in the area. The same group that thinks the stuff on the radio is still country music . Keep in mind I'm in bucks county, one of the highest income counties in the state.

Because that flag solely stands for slavery and not independence/states rights. You obviously have no understanding of civil war history other than the garbage they feed you in school, or else you'd realize there were a bunch of sanctions/tariffs against the south before they seceded. The north were the aggressors, the south wanted be left alone and they were trying to defend their homeland, not trying to invade the north. Also Sherman's march to sea the north pillaged every village, burning homes, slaughtering livestock, stealing private property, and raping and killing women.

I guess the next thing you'll say is that the Gadsden Flag is offensive. How dare people declare their independence and secede from the indentured servitude of Britain!

While I don't claim to be a historian I do understand the civil war and know plenty about it. To say that slavery wasn't a strong factor in it is ignorant and offensive in my honest opinion.

I guess my phrase "waged war" could be read as me saying the south were the aggressors but rest assured it was not my intention.

We have two groups in this country:

We have a group that boldly flies the Confederate Flag because they're proud of their heritage. This same group thumps their chest indignantly when those of other heritages fly their flag.

We have a group who will defend to the death any individuals right to proudly celebrate their heritage by flying other nations flags in America, but they thump their chests indignantly when anyone flies a confederate flag...

Isn't irony great...

There is only one flag that millions of AMERCIANS have bled and died for! Fly it proudly!
