On Confederate Heritage … and That Flag :)

This is amazing for its ignorance of (among other things) the amendment process for the United States Constitution. Unfortunately, you have to get through a lot of noise before the interview begins.

    She sounds like she’s been smoking that stuff the government tells her she can’t smoke.

      I listened to this interview live at the time, and it’s worth mentioning that Cooper made the same points, almost word-for-word, here as she did in the in the “Battle Flag” documentary. So there’s no question that she’s being misquoted, or taken out of context. She’s very clear that she is driven and motivated by antipathy toward the federal government of 2015, rather than the Federals of 1861-65.

      And that’s fine; people are motivated by all sorts of things. But her inability to articulate anything substantive about the events of 1861-65 beyond a few catch phrases and clichés picked up on the sidewalk, while at the same time having been one of the most active and high-profile members of the Virginia Flaggers for three, going on four years now, really does underscore the fact that one can become a Confederate Heritage™ celebrity without ever cracking a book, or having any real knowledge of the conflict.

        Should read,

        So there’s no way to claim that she’s being misquoted, or taken out of context.

        From what I’ve seen of that crew, having any real knowledge of the conflict would disqualify one from being a confederate heritage celebrity.
