Secondly, wanna know how dumb flag supporters are in general?

They'd support defunding schools in a state that has the highest illiteracy rate in the US over a hate symbol.

Speaks volumes about their priorities.

I agree their priorities are wrong as well but priorities cut both ways. There is a valid argument to be made that many of the people who are part of the reason why the state has the highest illiteracy rate are more worried about things like flags than bettering themselves.


A lot of failure going around from all sides.

The numbers in this poll don't surprise me at all. Hands off the Mississippi state flag, say a majority of Mississippians in Mason-Dixon poll | SunHerald

Good point, the DM however, is known for being a pretty liberal newspaper, held a similar poll and had identical results, so I found it kinda odd they had a majority "No" vote about it.
