NFL Punts On Daniel Defense Video

....... Daniel Defense’s banned Super Bowl commercial. ....... ....... Birthplace Of The Confederate Flag ie "The birth certificate of a flag". ....... NFL Bans Super Bowl Gun Commercial ....... G&A Online Editors ....... Daniel Defense recently submitted a commercial to FOX to be played during the 2014 NFL Super Bowl XLVIII. Though the video doesn’t showcase one of the company’s popular DDM4 rifles, this paid advertisement spot was rejected by the NFL. The commercial, which focuses on themes of personal protection and fundamental rights, was originally created by Daniel Defense to run in any network TV station at any time. According to NFL guidelines, Daniel Defense’s Super Bowl commercial does not violate NFL policy for two reasons: Daniel Defense has a brick-and-mortar store, where they sell products other than firearms such as apparel. The commercial itself does not mention firearms, ammunition or weaponry. While Daniel Defense’s commercial does not mention firearms, it does include a logo of their DDM4 rifle at the very end. ........ ........ ....... (Thats right bubba the confederate flag has a "long form" birth certificate not a PDF forged document like the FRAD who calls himself obama. What does this have to do with the Daniel Defense Video? The South fought against the north because of several reasons the main one being the north, ie fed government, was bypassing the US Constitution and states rights. The NFL i'm sure wants to be pc and not offend the obama machine by bowing down to the federal regime in power. Yes Bubba the Confederate battle flag does symbolize an individual's freedom to resist the federal government tyranny and oppression of freedom including the freedom to exercise freedom of speech. Freedom of speech includes the Daniel Defense Video and its contents. The NFL has denied The Daniel Defense right to freedom of speech. They have punted your right in effect bubba to speak your mind on the 2nd amendment to the Constitution. Obama has punted every time he was confronted with any question of his origin and US citizenship. Obama has also punted when asked any serious question about anything he is doing. He is good at doing head fakes to the American public.) Story Reports ....... Confederate Battle Flag ....... Confederate Battle Flag ....... When the Confederate Army of the Shenandoah, under Joseph E. Johnston, and the Confederate Army of the Potomac, under Pierre G. T. Beauregard, met Union forces at the First Battle of Manassas on July 21, 1861, their troops flew an assortment of flags, both state and national. (States' rights was a founding principle of the Confederacy and influenced the attachment many units had to their state flags. Some Virginia and North Carolina soldiers refused to fly anything but their state flags.) The Stars and Bars' resemblance to the U.S. flag, combined with similarities between the two sides' uniforms and the general confusion of battle, contributed to an incident at First Manassas in which Confederate forces fired on a Confederate infantry brigade commanded by Jubal A. Early. Shortly after, Johnston and Beauregard resolved to establish a new, sufficiently distinctive flag for their troops, and they consulted one of Beauregard's aides, the same William Miles who had opposed the original flag in the first place. Miles resurrected what had been his preference for the national flag, a design of his own that featured a blue saltire, or X shape, with a white border and white stars (again, one for each state) on a field of red. The Committee on the Flag and Seal had rejected it the first time, suggesting that it looked "like a pair of suspenders," and now the members rejected it again. Johnston and Beauregard decided to use it anyway, with Beauregard proposing to Johnston two Confederate flags: "a peace or parade flag, and a war flag to be used only on the field of battle." This second flag, the so-called battle flag, would be the one Miles designed, and the two generals and their lieutenants met at Fairfax Court House in September 1861 to work out the details. At Johnston's urging, a square design was adopted, and each branch of the army was assigned a different size: forty-eight inches square for infantry, thirty-six inches square for artillery, and thirty inches square for cavalry. The Confederate battle flag was never adopted as a national flag, although over the course of the war it was incorporated into two such banners. The Second National Flag was adopted on May 1, 1863. Rectangular with a white field and a canton containing the battle flag, it was designed to look substantially different from the Stars and Stripes. (Public opinion had shifted since 1861. Matthew Fontaine Maury called the Stars and Bars a "servile imitation" of the Stars and Stripes.) However, the "Stainless Banner," as the new flag was called, introduced another problem. In the rare instance where it was used on the battlefield, it looked too much like a flag of truce, so on March 4, 1865, a vertical red strip along the fly edge was added, making it the "Blood-Stained Banner." In the meantime, the battle flag slowly transformed into an important national symbol independent of the national flags. For a time it was referred to as "Beauregard's flag," and when Beauregard's and Johnston's armies combined into a new Army of Northern Virginia in March 1862, it became closely associated with that force and its longtime commander, Robert E. Lee. As the Army of Northern Virginia became an important national symbol, so did the battle flag. Confederate nationhood was not independent of Lee's army and its success—as suggested by Johnston's distinction between peace and war flags—but, in fact, dependent upon it. Still, even as it became an important national symbol, the various meanings contained by the battle flag were complicated and sometimes ironic. Miles's original design was inspired by a South Carolina secession flag, which featured a blue St. George's cross, populated by fifteen white stars, on a field of red. In the upper left were a white crescent and a white palmetto. However, a Confederate Jew complained that the cross invested the flag with inappropriate religious symbolism, and Miles replaced it with what in heraldic terms is known as a saltire. Ironically, the X-shaped saltire is identical to a St. Andrew's cross, named for the Christian martyr and patron saint of Scotland. In that way, a flag that was intended to be secular took on powerful religious associations for some. Meanwhile, a flag not originally intended to be a national symbol has come to powerfully represent, more than any of the national flags, the Confederate nation and its varied and sometimes volatile associations, including slavery. Finally, during the twentieth century, the battle flag was often mistakenly referred to as the Stars and Bars, linking it to the First National Flag, whose design Miles had found so objectionable. A flag that has come to symbolize Confederate independence is often called by the name of a flag designed to emphasize the Confederacy's connection to the United States. ....... ....... (Today the virgina battle flag means diffenrt things to some people. The original intent of the flag was to inform the federal government that the south had had enough of their corruption and the south was willing to fight for their individual freedoms and rights. I think it still has the same meaning to the federal government.) Story Reports ..... . AR15 Info For American Self Defense
