What is your (and my–my ancestors wore the grey) “Southern Heritage”? What do the Sons of Confederate Veterans venerate?
They venerate a mentality that makes me think of a couplet from an absolutely horrifying film–horrifying because it brought evil to life–about vile persons who do vile things for fun and profit.
The Booman tells the story that brought this couplet to mind. Read the couplet, then follow the link.
I feel soiled just reading the story that the Booman tells.
Slavery was evil; the Confederate States of America was formed to protect and perpetuate evil; the myth of the Old South, with its happy darkies contentedly singing as they work, is a lie in the service of evil; and the modern adherents, proponents, and propagandists of this lie serve evil.
Ask me nicely, I’ll tell you what I really think.
