Back when esnl was knee-high to a grasshoppers, folks used to joke, “Save your Confederate money! The South will rise again!”
Looks like it’s finally happening, although it was the Republicans, under the first Republican administration, Abe Lincoln, who originally led the war against the Confederate States of America, the rebellious states that fought a war to keep slavery [and, yes, the war really was fought over the issue of whether or not slavery should be allowed in new states joining the union].
Ol’ Abe must be spinning in his grave.
From the Washington Post:
‘Racialists’ are cheered by Trump’s latest strategyWhite nationalists, once dismissed as fringe, believe that their worldview is gaining popularity and that the old Republican Party is coming to an end.
