    Not only is the assumption "a fundamental mistake", it, by necessity of logic, transfers that same assumption and guilt to many more organizations and persons than just the one displaying the flag . . .

    TRUE HISTORY OF THE WAR FOR SOUTHERN INDEPENDENCE IN THIS AGE OF POLITICAL CORRECTNESS there has never been a greater need and greater opportunity to refresh our understanding of what happened in America in the years 1861-1865 and start defending our Southern forebears as strongly as they ought to be defended. There is plenty of true history available to us. It is our job to make it known. All the institutions of American society, including nearly all Southern institutions and leaders, are now doing their best to separate the Confederacy off from the rest of American history and push it...

    Did Hillary Clinton put on a southern accent on campaign stop in Memphis? Some critics claim she changed her voice Hillary Clinton has been accused of putting on a southern accent during a campaign stop in Memphis. During a speech at LeMoyne-Owen College earlier this week, some people claimed the Democratic presidential candidate's voice had something of a southern twang. Clinton has faced similar accusations in the past, most notably during speeches in Alabama and South Carolina.

    The Mizzou protest has sparked a lot of controversy all across the country even right here in our own backyard, this time in Statesboro, Georgia. If you’ve missed what’s been happening at Missouri University here’s a brief timeline: September 12, 2015 – Student government complained about the bigotry and anti-gay sentiment which gained national attention. October 4th, 2015 – Caucasian student removed from an event strictly for black students and uttered, “these niggers are getting aggressive with me” while being removed. November 3rd, 2015 – Student Jonathan Butler vowed not to eat until the president of the school resigned. November...

    The other day, my son asked why there are such a variety of accents in the country. Why does a fellow from Mississippi have a twang thats different from a fellow in Texas? Long ago, I asked my father a similar question. He pointed out that it isnt just in America a wide range of dialects and accents are common for French, Arabic, whatever. In recent days, some interesting pieces have appeared online. One in Slate has a list of the top slang terms from every state. Heres what was included for the Mid-South: Arkansas: tump -- to tip...

    As the debate over the Confederate Battle Flag continues to occupy the interest of the media we are constantly reminded of precisely who is “right” and who is on the wrong side of history. Listening to the talking heads on cable news you’d be tempted to think that, much like climate change, the social science is settled. Everyone is onboard for tearing the hated flag down and if you don’t agree you are part of a tiny group of racist dead enders, clutching your guns and your bibles in some remote cave in the Ozarks. Presidential candidates and Republican Party...

  • Alabama, Where Same-Sex Marriage Remains Deeply Unpopular

    New York Times ^ | February 9, 2015 | Nate Cohn
    Public opinion surveys show that a majority of adults and a growing one now supports same-sex marriage. But the rapid change in public opinion may obscure another fact: Large areas of the country remain overwhelmingly opposed to same-sex marriage, with little sign of change. Alabama is one of those places, and the chief justice of the Alabama Supreme Court this weekend encouraged probate judges there to defy a federal court order to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples. The emerging national majority in favor of same-sex marriage is built on high levels of support in well-educated metropolitan areas,...

    Miss Rutherford lived during a time when people were closer and the pace was slower! Miss Rutherford writes often about the Confederacy, and Southern traditions, and was overall a champion of all things Southern. While her writings may not be politically correct in todays world, they are an important look into her era and document views and events from someone who lived through them and knew people who did.---Kenneth H.

    As you might of heard, the UAW went down to Chattanooga, Tenn. and took a bullet a few weeks ago when non-unionized workers at the Volkswagen plant told them to pack their carpet bags and head north. Now the question is: Why would a Southern man trust his future to a German company and not an American union? We deserve an explanation, since we not only bailed out the auto companies but also the pension fund of the UAW. In this edition of The Americans with Charlie LeDuff, the crew takes us on a journey that starts at the UAW...

    MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russia's federal Anti-Terrorist Committee said on Friday it had detained six men suspected in a bombing in the southern city of Pyatigorsk last month that killed three people and added to security fears in the run-up to the Winter Olympics. Russia is on security alert only weeks before it opens the 2014 Winter Games on February 7 in the southern Black Sea resort of Sochi, some 270 km (170 miles) west of Pyatigorsk where the car bomb went off...

    Born as a symbol of rebellion, the Confederate battle flag retains much of that symbolism to this very day. What is even more intriguing is the fact that the very commissioning of the original Confederate battle flag was itself, an act of rebellion. This little-known part of the flags story is told in a fascinating new documentary written and produced by historian Kent Masterson Brown.

As Corkins told the FBI after his arrest, he learned of the FRC online, It was a, uh, Southern Poverty Law, lists, anti-gay groups. I found them online. I did a little bit of research, went to the website, stuff like that. Corkins attempted a mass shooting on Aug. 15, 2012, opening fire at the Family Research Council and wounding...
