News and Notes: March 27, 2012

Never a dull day in the neighborhood …

  1. Here’s a protest against lumping people together offered by a person who lumps people together.  Ironically, the author’s also been lumped with me by Hunter Wallace, but she’s too skeered of confronting him.  Indeed, she has yet to challenge any of his posts about southern and Confederate history as history.  This may be because she doesn’t know any history: she admits she doesn’t care about it.  That’s exactly the sort of thing you want to hear from someone who wants to restore southern pride and protect southern heritage: a confession of complete ignorance about what actually happened.
  2. It’s fascinating (and entertaining) to watch one Confederate heritage advocate press the claim that slaves were citizens on Kevin Levin’s blog.  As I’ve told you before, it’s heritage, not history.  Thanks for another stunning display of ignorance.  As someone once said, “I do know people should really know a little more about the reality of things before they spout off, because their spouting off has the potential for making them look real, real stupid.”  Now if she’d only practice what she preaches …
  3. And from that group … “The Jews already run just about everything. When you run the financial behemoth and the media, you don’t need much else.”  Love Connie’s public!  Waiting for someone to observe that Judah Benjamin was Jewish.
  4. Want an idea where some Flaggers come from?  Try this.  Methinks they forgot who won.
  5. Then again, perhaps the Museum of the Confederacy went a little too far in the eyes of some.  So, is this bad …… but this is okay?You tell me.

UPDATE: Connie Chastain informs me that the image of the prom dress originally displayed here was “photoshopped,” and, upon examining the image, I found it offensive and exchanged it for the original.  That Connie is currently blaming bloggers she targets for doing the photoshopping is a lie, of course, but then I attribute that to her continuing bitterness.  Note that at first Connie had absolutely no problem with the offensive image, which portrayed a cartoon racist image of an African American.  She wasn’t angry about that.  You’ll have to ask her why that was okay with her.

    Brooks-We have to get that on “Fashion Police”‘s “Bi#$h Stole My Look!” to get a determination on who wore it better. I vote for RuPaul!

    Forget the prom dress. How dumb do you have to be to pose in a Confederate uniform in front of that particular picture?

    Stupid is as stupid does.

      My understanding is that the background image originally displayed was added to the original image. I’ve replaced the offensive image with the original image.

        Good, thanks. I withdraw my comment.

          It is worthy of note that the image in question that Connie Chastain claims I photoshopped for this blog appeared here. But she’s not too bright about these sorts of things … and, of course, she’s the photoshop expert. 🙂
