It's disgusting the lengths to which so many southerners, rightwing hardliners and their Dixie-lovin' Reb Flag wavin' cohorts around the US will go to deny that the Civil War and that goddamned rag they so love to wave were all about slavery.
They're wrong. Dead wrong.
Yes the Civil War was about slavery. Those Confederate flags are about slavery. I have no doubt that a majority of Southerners, and a great many Northerners, would bring back segregation in a heartbeat and slavery in the next.
Slave nations because they have learned from experience. Inspired by your overshoot post.
The hard right conservatives used the end of segregation and abortion to take over the Republican Party. Those are sores that will fester until the US comes apart like Yugoslavia. In the mean time, the 1% will rake in their $$$$$$ and everyone else will pay the freight.
Anyong said....Nice to see that old rag hanging from a few windows right here in good ol AB. Who would have tunk it.
