The Saltire comes from an incident in Scotland where a brutal bastard called Cardinal Beaton was overthrown and killed by a rebellion and his body hung from the ramparts of Saint Andrews castle in a sideways cross, by one foot and one hand. Forming the cross of the Saltire. That's it's origin. look it up.

It has about as much to do with racism as it has the price of cheese in outer Mongolia.

To Scots It meant standing up to oppressors and freedom from English domination. Sound familiar?

The victors of conflicts get to write the history books. The meaning of the Confederate flag to those who fought for it may be completely different to the way we have been recently told it was.

200 year old bull# propaganda is still bull# today. It does not age into truth like wine.

Just saying.
