Of course, that's not what it is for. That's funny, what a joke, hahaha.
Kevin Levin is a self-appointed civil war thought cop. His blog is not for studying how the civil war is remembered. It is his vehicle for PASSING JUDGMENT on how the war is remembered. What he approves of, he praises. What he disapproves of, he maligns.
How HE remembers the civil war is his business. How anyone else remembers it is not. But you can't get that simple truth across to a leftist. They are constitutionally incapable of minding their own business. They can't even grasp the concept, mind your own business. They mind everyone's business BUT their own.
The floggosphere is getting nasty, folks. For some reason I haven't yet run across, these folks red-hot angry and they get mean and nasty when that happens. Expect more and nastier attacks on Southern heritage, especially Facebook folks and the VaFlaggers.
Yes, chirren, that is a rhetorical question. We KNOW why, don't we?
I’ve said it before, but I find most Civil War battle reenactments to be disrespectful to the memory of Civil War soldiers. ... Is there really no other way to honor these men?Sure there is. But it's being prohibited, punished, erased, etc. (See efforts at Washington and Lee University.)
So don't worry and be patient a little longer, Levin. The day you long for is coming -- the day when honoring these men in any fashion whatever -- at least, the Confederates -- will no longer be allowed.
An excellent rebuttal to a recent tirade by Al Mackey's is posted at the Cold Southern Steel blog Check it out here.
As my readers are probably aware of by now, I monitor the flogger flogs for gratuitous attacks on Southern heritage and its supporters. I don't care what these rascals say about other things. They seem to think that because I don't pay attention to what they say about history, I'm uninterested in history, and don't know much about it.
Let me put it this way. I'm uninterested in THEIR versions of history, and their flogs are the LAST place I will look for it, because history is not their true interest, and what they say about it is not reliable. They get all bent out of shape when Confederate heritage supporters post mistakes about history on Facebook and elsewhere. But hey, mistakes are much more forgivable than the flogger practice of deliberately misinterpreting history in order to use it as a club to bash people they don't like.
