I read earlier that the Apple store has taken down some Civil War games as they had the Confederate flag on them - that kinda sounds like a step too far

I stopped into a bar tonight in Williamston, NC and found myself in a discussion about how the Civil War had nothing to do with slavery. It was fought because the North taxed Southern cotton.



Southern Cotton is projected as a late first round selection tonight.

Seriously. I mean, are there Nazi flags in any WWII games? I don't know, I'm asking.

Not in Germany, at least. On Steam, Wolfenstein was a disclaimer listed that it cannot be played in Germany.

I never knew there was a second video. The first one is still the best.

I made the second after they took the original down at The Pit claiming that my use of "gay ass shirt" was homophobic. I regret not choosing my words more carefully, but they would have found another excuse.

The KKK has been granted approval for a pro Confederate flag rally in Columbia in a couple of weeks.
Apparently they don't realize that will do just the opposite of helping their cause.

Did they threaten to revoke your membership?

No. I didn't post it at the Pit, and I'm allowed to make whatever YouTube videos I want. :D Artistic license!

TVLand has pulled The Dukes of Hazzard. I'm pretty certain if you were still watching the show the General Lee didn't offend you. :roll:
