Nothing worse than ignorant thug criminals being lionized as heros by the Left.
I can think of one. Traitors being lionized as heros by conservatives

Conservobots? Any number of people here would find that entertaining if used as a descriptor for me, but have at it if it makes you feel better.

I never said you haven't read books on the ****ter or elsewhere. I suggested you might want to read books on the subject actually being discussed that have not been 'adjusted' for a particular thought outcome.

Funny that a phrase I used elsewhere this morning comes into play here too. Normalcy bias. Unfortunately, it is applicable.

Of course you do. A victim of monolithic PC, you cannot help but parrot it despite the availability of reason. Those "traitors" were lionized by our own National Congress (in modern times) when reasonable men and women realized the dilemma of being a patriot to your state and a national government that oppresses. And each State of the original union holding a contract that says they could leave. However, their attempt to do so was thwarted by the oppressive North.

The southern states did not invade the North. They simply left the Union. At which point the North sent in troops. The word "traitor" does not apply.

California speaks today of succession to the accolades of Progressive Liberals nationwide. Again it is about the right of a state to determine and enforce it's own laws. I have heard no one suggest the concept is "Traitorous."

It would seem you have a real and unsupportable bias generated by current PC propaganda. I suggest you think again. Not that it would matter a twit.

Why do you keep defending the confederacy?
