It’s been a slow year for Confederate heritage, which has found itself increasingly on the defensive and with little ability to rally its forces. Perhaps these latest efforts to rescue the cause suggest why.
Nothing like embracing white supremacy as the cornerstone to your movement. Oddly enough, many radical opponents might agree with a portion of the central argument.
But that’s not all.

I would use the ad space to sell tin foil hats.
I find this a rather unattractive flyer that could use a little proofreading. Too bad Confederate heritage spokespeople are design-deficient as well as a little too addicted to tired old slogans that don’t wear well.
Then again, this is just what critics of Confederate heritage desire, so I guess we should encourage more of the same.
I remember the Nashville Dixie Flyers in the old EHL.
The stories about travel and living conditions in that league would generate a great book.
The old Salem Rebels lived in a trailer court behind an amusement park.
It’s the same denial in flyer form. They’re going to keep screaming about the legality of secession while ignoring the reality of what caused the secession. Note how they ignored who fired on Fort Sumter, who ordered that attack, and why? It is became the factually challenged avoid the things which don’t put the Confederacy in a good picture.
You know, that whole slavery thing? Bad for reality.
1. Nothing like kicking off your newsletter with “some smart-aleck snowflake” in the first sentence of the first article on the first page to make it painfully clear the quality of the material we can expect.
2. Anti-Confederate Heritage = Communist destruction of American values. Sort of like how ending segregation was Communist?
Stay classy, NeoConfederates.
“Letter from Facebook Jail” doesn’t have quite the same impact as one from the one in Birmingham…
