The stars, the fasces, the stripes, they're all intangibly bound to American history.

2017-10-07 02:05:42 UTC  

I'm not upset, I'm just drawing the distinction between overall cultural concepts that define America, and colloquialisms that are great, and I agree with, but not something to wrap a nation in.

906 pm is real autism hours.

I don't think it's a mere 'colloqualism.' I think it's a guiding philosophy. It makes the nation explicitly white. The 13 colonies reference does not. They were white... but it really only implies it. The civic nationalist would tell you that dot Indians could have pulled off the Boston Tea Party.

It reminds me of that maxim "any non-profit which isn't explicitly conservative, soon becomes liberal." In this day, any nation not explicitly white, turns brown.

The 14 words did not invent the concept of tribalism, it existed before they were coined. Also, remember, there's a fasces there. The symbol of quite literal Fascism. Strength through unity, unity through blood.

2017-10-07 02:09:11 UTC  

There we go

2017-10-07 02:09:14 UTC  

something for everyone

2017-10-07 02:09:47 UTC  

"This is a white country" has 5 words, therefore we should have 5 stars.

2017-10-07 02:10:02 UTC  

That's faulty logic.

2017-10-07 02:10:03 UTC  

The 14 words are established, but I do agree

2017-10-07 02:10:31 UTC  

I'd say maybe 1/5 Americans have heard the 14 words, and that's only a recent thing

2017-10-07 02:10:48 UTC  

1/5 is greater than 1/10.

2017-10-07 02:10:56 UTC  

And 1/10 can start a mass movement.

2017-10-07 02:11:01 UTC  

We were far less than 1/10 6 months ago

2017-10-07 02:11:08 UTC  

But I also see your point

2017-10-07 02:11:14 UTC  

By putting the 14 words, as a concept, on the flag that represents the American Identity, you are kind of lifting David Lane up above George Washington, or any other founding figure this nation has known.

2017-10-07 02:11:39 UTC  

That's a better argument.

2017-10-07 02:11:39 UTC  

Your flags are all g2g, Thomas. Y'all jokers have a good night. I gotta get some sleep.

2017-10-07 02:12:03 UTC  

goodnight friend

2017-10-07 02:12:41 UTC  


2017-10-07 02:13:00 UTC  

So you're leaning on top left Thomas?

2017-10-07 02:13:07 UTC  


2017-10-07 02:13:15 UTC  

It'd fall over if I leaned any harder.

2017-10-07 02:14:57 UTC  

You know when you open up a new tab because you had an idea of something to do... but once you open it you forget what that idea was?

i like it too. i guess my "issue" with the different designs is that the ones i listed as the ones i liked is that they fit different roles. Some look good with flags, some look good for stickers/posters, some look good for patches. it kinda hard to decide. although if we are modeling after the american flag, id say the middle middle one then

Am I the only one that thinks Texas' flag is a minimalistic version of the American flag? One of each component.

2017-10-07 02:21:10 UTC  

It was intended as such

2017-10-07 02:21:21 UTC  

Statehood was unfortunately immediately in the minds of Texas' founding fathers

2017-10-07 02:21:37 UTC  

Except Mirabeau "The based" Lamar
