If you want to keep mentioning treason then I suggest you look it up. It is a violation of allegiance toward one's country. Do you know why Jefferson Davis was never tried for Treason after being arrested? Because there was nothing in the constitution that forbids secession as pointed out by the Supreme Court. The South did not commit treason by seceding. Furthermore, It is a battle flag. If someone wants to fly it, then so be it. If my ggg grandfather (who owned no slaves nor had the intent) fought and died under that flag then I'll fly it where I damn well please. Not everyone who supports the flag are racist biggots and whoever believes the flag only represents slavery is ignorant. Do I think it should it be flown over government facilities - No. Should you STFU about an individual flying their own on their own property - Yes.
