The Fringe Left is apparently still reading this blog:
Brad Griffin, when trying to posture himself and his organization: I am an OFFICER of LEAGUE OF THE SOUTH we are FIGHTING for our HERITAGE
Brad when facing accountability for the fact that that fighting was actually very illegal: i am but a smol historicist https://t.co/HEcaYVPg9b

nothing says “i’m not mad, im actually laughing” quite like embedding a dozen youtube videos about martin luther in your blog post about how no one will do business with you because you’re a white supremacist. pic.twitter.com/ZI2LdhblMv

I don’t believe in “white supremacy.”
My actual opinion on that subject is that it is an antiquated 19th century term. I think White people currently have all sorts of problems like the opioid and suicide epidemic.
I’m not part of the “far right” either. I don’t run a “hate group.” These are all just made up terms that are thrown around by fanatics and by leftwing journos who tend to be morons:
“(WWBT) – A new poll shows a majority of Virginia voters want Confederate monuments to remain where they are.
A poll from Quinnipiac University shows 57 percent oppose removing Confederate monuments from government property across the state.
Only 33 percent supported removal with 10 percent undecided.
Nonwhite voters favored leaving the monuments alone 48 percent to 42 percent. Among white voters, 63 percent supported the monuments while 27 percent supported removal. …”
“Almost 70 percent of Virginia voters said health care was the most important or a very important issue in deciding whom to vote for as governor.
Ralph Northam, the Democratic nominee, bested Republican candidate Ed Gillespie by 54 to 45 percent.
More than twice as many people said Gillespie’s support of Obamacare repeal made it less likely they would vote for him than said his support would make it likely he would win their vote. …”
A year after Charlottesville, a majority of Virginia voters support keeping the Confederate monuments. Most people in Virginia believe that Confederate monuments represent Southern pride. A majority of non-White voters in Virginia don’t even support your agenda of tearing down Confederate monuments. This is likely because whether some statue stays or goes really has little impact on their lives.
In the 2018 election, 41% of Virginians and 75% of Democrats said that health care was the most important issue facing the state. This is fascinating because as a populist I support both preserving the Confederate monuments as well as a better healthcare system. Strangely enough, this somehow makes me “fringe” or an “extremist” from the perspective of fanatics whose views on everything from politics to the morality of violence are far more radical than my own.
Note: BTW, I didn’t fight with anyone in Charlottesville. I went to political rally and was kind of just amazed at the way law enforcement collapsed around me. I’ve been to about 40 other political rallies in the South and have never seen anything like it before.
