Lament of the Neo-Confederates

July 18, 2015

“Those Yankees took our slave away and we’ll never forgive them for that! Boo hoo!, Feel sorry for us!”

“Even after the war was over they still didn’t give us our slaves back! That’s no fair!”

“That’s why we have been posing as Angry Victims for 150 years now.
Angry self-pity is our stock in trade. It is the fuel that keeps our engines running, our outrage going. It is what defines us. We have built our whole identity around this [Big Lie] so we can’t give it up now!

“Now you want to take away White Supremacy, the only thing we have left! How can you be so cruel?”

(this is really the heart of the matter)
