I suppose the more serious charge will be displaying the Confederate flag.

Which charge would that be? Please don't try to diminish the legitimate issues around the Confederate flag.

The confederate flag still flies high at many homes in Florida. If you’re in Coral Coral drive down Veteran’s Pkwy and just before you get to Santa Barbara look right. There will be a giant one flying above the stars and stripes and FL state flag.

I don’t know the people but it is a stand your ground state so I would suggest no approaching their domicile unwarranted.

Above the Stars and Stripes? America - where people are free to be idiots.

Other articles show the real car. It wasn't a '69 Charger with a Confederate flag on its roof, but a modern Challenger with 74 on the doors and black stripes (no rooftop flag). It doesn't have any resemblance to the General Lee other than it's an orange Dodge.

The "fake" media put a picture of a vintage '69 Charger to add to the story.

Did my own googling after reading your post. WTF?


It's just a modern orange Charger. This news clip shows a picture of it

Fake news strikes again, at least the details anyway. Our media truly sucks.

Well.. Questions should have arisen when seeing a picture of the guy who was arrested..






Now.. There's a guy in Asheville.. Black feller.. Wears a full confederate uniform downtown every day.. So.. Not everyone takes offense at the same things... But.. Like seeing a black gentleman in full confederate uniform.. Questions come to mind when seeing a story that the above guy was in a General Lee replica.


And.. If you want my guess. The first story posted on this was from a radio station website. If you look at the byline on it, Jeff Zito wrote the story. You click on about and you see that Jeff Zito is the afternoon drive DJ.. And his bio states "Jeff is a swell dude."


More red flags than a drought zone there.


But.. Probably he wrote the story, fudging some details for his afternoon drive show.. Some wire service picked it up and ran with it without fact checking it whatsoever.

That Challenger doesn’t even look anything like the General Lee.
