Another Outrage Against Confederate Heritage?

Word comes via the gift that keeps on giving about the fate of a man who likes to play someone who gives out gifts …

Dear Compatriots, A couple of days ago I was told my position of Legendary Santa at the Children’s Museum of Richmond would be discontinued. I believe that the reason is due to my association with Confederate heritage groups. The assault on our love of our culture continues…

What would you ask Confederate Santa Claus to place under your Christmas tree … other than that Red Ryder BB Gun?

    Maybe if you’d been especially good that year you would ask him for the General Lee, the Dukes of Hazard car.

    A few boxes of AK-47s? Wait, that’s already been done …

    The Red Ryder BB gun was the first mental image that jumped in my head after getting to the Santa Claus part. Too funny. I wonder if South Park has ever done anything on the these folks.

      South Park has come pretty close–they did do a show devoted to Civil War re-enacting, which I used to be very active in. South Park’s take on it was absolutely hilarious! I could swear they spent some time at actual re-enactments, because they faithfully depicted all the personalities that one sees in the hobby–especially in the Confederate ranks. Hopefully this episode is still available somewhere; I’ve got a very old video copy of it.

    That photo is just unbelievable. An oxymoron if there ever was one.

      I wonder if FatHead makes an HK wall cling?

    A Christmas present from the Confederate Santa…hmmm. How about a case of Trailer City Beer from the local Food Clown store…”The One Beer To Have If You’re Going To Have More Than Six.” Also known as “The Mayor Of Bottled Beers.”

    This was in the old National Lampoon Sunday Paper book that came out when P.J. O’Rourke was NL’s chief editor back in the day.
