President Obama gave a speech in Oklahoma Wednesday night and a bunch of local rednecks decided it was the perfect opportunity to fly their Confederate flags to “show the president some southern heritage.” So they all got gussied up in their finest Marlboro t-shirts and put their flags on their pickup trucks. Here’s video of the planners, who had no idea when he was even going to be there:
Now here’s what I find amusing about this. Oklahoma did not exist at the time of the Civil War. They had nothing at all to do with the Confederacy. That land was settled by white people, taking the land from Native Americans of course, decades after the war and it became a state in 1907. But they’re showing their “pride” in something they had nothing to do with. Strike a pose, there’s nothing to it.
