This could be the most Deep South moment of all time.

The Confederate flag controversy that’s swept across the U.S. in the past couple of weeks following the mass killing in Charleston, South Carolina, has inspired a vocal blowback from Confederate die-hards who don’t want to see their favorite red, white, and blue flag lowered a single inch.

To that end, some dudes in Georgia held a casual Confederate flag parade, with a long line of pickup trucks flying the old Southern battle flag. The man taking the video can hardly believe what he’s seeing until the end of the video, when the universe achieves absolute harmony.
