A Challenge for Ohioguy

As I noted yesterday, Simpson's carping about the dead-as-a-doornail Pat Hines issue. I guess his floggerettes need some stirring up.

Anyhoo,  OhioGuy sez:
Well, when Connie says you’re nuts, you are a certified screewball! I believe this guy is all bluster. But, to even talk about committing such heinous acts deserves condemnation, and I’m glad you put the spotlight on him. While he is not inciting to immediate action and, thus, his speech is protected, he does bear watching by the FBI in case I’m wrong about him being all bluster.
Once again, it happened over two years ago, Mr. Guy. There have been some attacks on schools since then, but none by Southern nationalists. To get an overview of the Hines issue, read these --

My blog posts about this issue:
Simpson's distortions:
Read all that and get back with me. You can post in my comments. I won't hex a spell on you, and you'll find a lot more respect from me here, than I find in the comment threads of your flogger buddies.

By the way, here are lists of school shootings, attacks and other violence. Why don't you skim them and see which incidents (if any) were perpetrated by Southern nationalists or Confederate heritage folks....


Ohioguy also sez, Thanks, Andy and Brooks, for further clarification of the tangled web that is the heritage movement of the unreconstructed rebels of the late insurrection. As “luck” would have it, I will be in Pensacola early in the new year. What specifically should I check out? I wouldn’t want to miss out on any CSA heritage tourist attractions. ;-)

P.S. This will be my first time back to Pensacola since I was stationed there when on active duty in the U.S. Navy.

  1. Whereas I don't agree with killing civilians. I do, however, understand Mr. Hines' sentiments very much. I've felt them myself on many occasions. I won't defend his statements, though. However, the number of genocidal, homicidal comments made by Yankee types on the net and elsewhere, on a daily basis, far exceeds the occasional lapse in composure by a rare Southerner. Most Southerners are too busy living their lives, to notice the hostility of their "fellow countrymen." Yankees, on the other hand, being how they are, thinking they're the only ones with rights or opinions, are shocked and angered when anyone expresses negative sentiments towards them. That the people they hate so much might actually be real Human beings with real feelings and opinions, is beyond their comprehension. Simple as it is.
