Here is what I posted on the other thread about Sullivan’s comment.
I donâ€™t quite get the Sullivan reference. I made the point that secession is a political tactic and didnâ€™t belong in the laundry list of Nazis and fascists, anti-Semites and racists, blah, blah, blah. How does that prove Bernsteinâ€™s point? Unless defense of the idea of secession is proof positive of guilt of some sort of thought crime. Maybe that was just the closet thing to â€œincriminatingâ€ Andrew could find in his quick jaunt around the web.
Actually secession is more than a tactic. Support of secession arises from a belief about government that goes against the modern conception of the nation state, but I seriously doubt that Bernstein was giving it that much thought. He was using Southern secessionists as a slur equivalent to Nazi, racist and anti-Semite. I guess the Vermont secessionists are all those things also.
Does this mean yall are bad people..or good people..??
HAW HAW HAW…
I distinctly remember the deep feelings of resentment I had wearing my
oldest brothers jeans to school…Mama had washed them carefully over the years, and they were dried on the line in the sun. He was exactly ten years older than me. By the time I had reached High School, I was able to
purchase my own, but the faded ones were in ‘style’ by that time.
Some folks just don’t know who their friends are, do they ?
