Some asshat named Dean Obeidallah (nice Muslim name there) has written a hate piece at CNN called "Confederate Flag Was the Flag of Traitors." I had a great time baiting and bashing Yankees in the comments section, until the editors started holding up my comments ("awaiting moderation").
Skewering Yankees on the Sword of Truth is not difficult, in fact, it's like shooting fish in a barrel. They are routinely ignorant of the facts of history, and Southerners are generally well armed with such facts.
I must admit I was deliberately incendiary in my comments. If I can't convince Yankees that they are full of bovine excrement, then at least I can give them stomach acid. The writer, Dean Obeidallah, is greatly angered because Confederate troops killed "110,000 Union troops." Oh, so we were just supposed to stand there and let them kill us without any opposition? Idiot. I told him the number was greater than that, and quoted a verse from the song "Good Ole Rebel":
Three hundred thousand Yankees lie stiff in Southern dust.
We got three hundred thousand before they conquered us.
They died of Southern fever, and Southern steel and shot.
I wish it were three million instead of what we got.
Then I said, "I wish we could resurrect those dead Yankees and shoot them all again." Ha ha!
No kiddies, what you learned in Third Grade about Abraham Lincoln and the Great Northern Myth is false history. Free yourselves from ignorance, because truth is the weapon of freedom.
Hat tip to Carolyn Saunders of the Confederate Society of America for bringing this to my attention.
