Andrew Sullivan Worries About the Return of the Confederacy

Andrew Sullivan is an idiot who has made many crazy, far-left claims in the past.  Now he is saying that if Romney wins Virginia and Florida, the Confederacy will come back.

No Sullivan, you ignorant fool, the Confederacy will come back if THEY DON''T WIN.  Because if we must suffer another four years of far-leftist Barack Obama, then many of us are ready to secede.

If America is to become a permanent cesspool of late-term abortion, soaring energy prices, high joblessness,  illegal immigration and Islam-supporting dhimmis, then it will be time to leave America (or what now passes for it) behind.

Of course, Sullivan, being the walking leftist stereotype that he is, assumes the Confederacy was all about "racism" as defined in modern terms and reflects his ignorance of history and his willingness to distort it in support of his modern-day political arguments.

Don't waste your vote on the Libertarian candidate on November 6.  Gary Johnson is a good guy who can't win.  By voting for Romney you will not only fire the ignorant fool currently occupying the White House, you will also mightily annoy Andrew Sullivan.  It's like getting two for one!

Ken Burns, Creator of Yankee Propaganda Film "The Civil War," Endorses Obama

More than twenty years ago, Ken Burns produced the TV series "The Civil War."  It was a complete whitewash of the Lincoln's invasion of the South in 1861 - 1865.  Many Southerners and others were disgusted with the distorted views of that propaganda effort.

Now Burns is endorsing Barack Obama for president.  Apparently, his knowledge of current events is on a par with his knowledge of history.

Read his absurd endorsement here.

"Despising Dixie" -- A Friendly Yankee Responds to Anti-South Book "Better Off Without 'Em"

Daniel J. Flynn, a writer at the American Spectator, takes author Chuck Thompson to the woodshed for "despising Dixie."  Thompson is the author who wrote the stupid little book, "Better Off Without 'Em," which I panned in a prior post.

Flynn defends the Southern contribution to America, and writes:
Even a Yankee unable to pronounce the letter "r" can articulate the charms of the drawling South. America's military heroes, from George Washington to Alvin York to Dakota Meyer, have disproportionately come from below the Mason-Dixon line. Whether one drinks Coke or Pepsi, Jack Daniel's or Jim Beam, one drinks to the South. Has the CNN travel writer traveled to Savannah, Charleston, or Nashville? The musicians who invented rock 'n' roll -- Chuck Berry, Elvis Presley, Buddy Holly, Little Richard, Fats Domino, Jerry Lee Lewis, the Everly Brothers -- all hailed from the South. It's also a fact that the South has better fiction: Flannery O'Connor, Zora Neale Hurston, William Faulkner, etc.

Who but a hater wants to discard all that?
Read it all here.

Hat tip to Stacy McCain for the link.

More Nonsense on Spielberg's Fictional "Lincoln"

There's another discussion online about director Steven Spielberg's new movie, "Lincoln."  I commented there, for anyone who's interested.  See the discussion here.

Having watched the latest ads about this monstrous distortion of history, i.e. Spielberg's "Lincoln," I fear for the future of the American republic.  Many Americans are totally ignorant of the most basic facts of history, and they will readily swallow this Hollywood malarkey as truth.  So much easier to watch a movie than read a book.

The new ads show Lincoln as a passionate purveyor of equality for blacks in America, motivated only by his deep convictions of freedom for slaves and his love of a suffering humanity, with emancipation his major, overriding goal.

In truth, the slaves were not much of a consideration while Lincoln was using military force to destroy Southern independence.  To Lincoln, the slaves were both a nuisance and a political tool; he didn't care for blacks at all, considered them an inferior race, and wanted to get rid of them by deporting them to Africa or Central America.  His attitude per Spielberg was "Oh, let's free black people and make them our social and political equals!"  His actual attitude was, "Let's get these damn inferior Negros outta here."

The facts show that Lincoln was utterly ruthless, politically ambitious and even dictatorial in office.  He knowingly and enthusiastically supported war on civilians, the burning of private homes and universities, and he hoped for a slave rebellion that would murder Southerners in their beds (thus saving him the trouble).  However, that's reality.  Spielberg's fictional Lincoln was a caring, weeping, meek and mild messianic figure who wanted to end the scourge of slavery, all out of the goodness of his heart, for justice, mercy, equality, for puppy dogs and butterflies, for tulips in spring and peppermint candy canes at Christmas.  It's enough to gag a mule.

Update:  This Canadian website has an interesting essay on the Lincoln myth, "Lincoln:  An Invented Hero."
