No.  I would either display the American flag or the Alaskan flag.

I could never do something like that because I know it would offend my neighbor.

Since I've had a number of black neighbors who proudly displayed Confederate flags at their homes, on their trucks, on t-shirts and hats; sure.

The flag isn't racist, just as all those who wave it aren't.

Funny, you'll happily tell me "not all muslims are violent extremists"; but you automatically assume anyone who doesn't find the Confederate flag abhorrent to be a racist.

Cowboy, never go any further East than New Mexico.

If the Confederate flag isn't racist, I would challenge someone to parade with one down the streets of Ferguson or in Harlem.

@MC    So, you're into trolling and antagonism.

It's one thing to have something displayed at your own home.

It's quite another to shove in someone's face.

For example, showing up and having sex in a public place because YOU think the human body is beautiful and who gives a rat's ass that a school field trip is going through at the same time. OR getting as many homosexuals together as you can for a make out session in the back of a church to "show those closed minded bastards what real love looks like".  OR going into restaurants in predominantly white neighborhoods with 50 or so black friends to chase off "de white folks" by screaming "black lives matter".

You tell everyone what a freedom loving soul you are, but you want nothing more than YOUR views reflected in that freedom. YOU don't like a Confederate flag, so you don't think anyone should have one.

I'm sure you probably don't think I should be able to own a gun either, simply because you don't like them.

@ MC:  Ferguson?  Isn't that where the Black Lives Matter movement started (based on LIES about what really happened)?  And didn't followers of that movement make Martin O'Malley (abject PC coward that he was) apologize for having the temerity to say ALL lives matter? 

I wouldn't take the word of those good folks for anything.

No, I wouldn't. I think it's a fine flag but using it to anger a neighbour is arrogant, racist, and more than a little redneck.

On the other hand, when my kids were playing soccer their team got a new coach who threw out four of the stalwarts who had been with the team for eight years. They moved to the next town and signed up for the opposition team and, the day they had to play their old team, one of the parents produced a Confederate flag. It must have inspired them because they won convincingly.

Of course, the Eureka flag would have been more appropriate in Oz. The Eureka Rebellion was a short-lived rebellion by gold miners protesting about government taxes. It had the same tone as the Boston Tea Party but, unfortunately, was less successful.
