Jerry Dunford Gets One Right

Sometimes someone gets something right.

You use history as your vehicle to blog and to spread the mistrusts about the flaggers and Southern heritage groups and history.

Absolutely. Several bloggers have been very active in sharing their understanding of history through their blogs (as well as through other venues). Their findings challenge the myths and misunderstandings about American history offered by Confederate heritage groups, including various “Flagger” groups and sole individuals. That in turn makes people mistrust what those heritage groups offer as “history.”

We always give the Dunford his due here.

In marked contrast, Connie Chastain offers the following observation:

Do you suppose Simpson and the navel-gazing academic “civil war blogging” circle will ever catch on that we don’t care what they think of us?

This, of course, is why Confederate heritage apologists advocates spend so much time telling us that they don’t care what their critics say. You can find Chastain’s comment buried in one of a series of posts that show just how much she doesn’t care. 🙂

Rest assured that the West Florida Flagger Gulf Coast Flaggers WTF West Florida Flaggers (sic) will provide so much entertainment in 2015 that I am now considering how to confine my commentary about the continuing exploits of the Pensacola Pariah within reasonable bounds. After all, there is real work to be done.

    They’ve earned the mistrust they get, every bit of it.

      As you’ve pointed out, some of them actually expect to get paid as well.

    Connie Chastain struggled to respond to this post in her usual “Sound and Fury” approach to blogging … you know …

    it is a tale/ Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,/Signifying nothing. (Macbeth, act V, scene 5; later used by William Faulkner as the title to perhaps his most famous book)

    She declares:

    So, yes, I take great interest in what they say — in the lies, the denigration, the harassment and attempted persecution. And THAT is what I monitor their blogs for (especially XRoads).

    But me care what Simpson thinks of us? It’ll be a cold day in hell before that happens.

    Which explains all those posts about my thinking … my intentions … my motivation … and so on.

    Don’t worry about that cold day in hell, Connie. Your hatred will always keep the pathetic Pensacola Pariah warm as she walks the sidewalks of the city. Happy New Year!
