Are We "Neo-Confederates"?

Our latest link is to Stogie, an old friend. His blog is "Confederate Gray." In his latest post, he poses an interesting question about the term "Neo-Confederate," which is supposed to be an accusation:

If those who identify the South as their true homeland, who else might bear the "Neo" label? Some ideas:
  • Tibetans who want their country back from China should be called "Neo-Tibetans."
  • Hawaiians who want their nation back are "Neo-Hawaiians."
  • The South Vietnamese who want to be free of their Communist masters are "Neo-South Vietnamese."
  • Up until the 1991, when the Soviet Union unraveled, Latvians might have been called "Neo-Latvians" and Ukrainians "Neo-Ukrainians."

Ya skewered 'em, Stogie! Looking forward to your future posts.

Yes, anything that doesn't promote the loud, obnoxious,vapid, vanilla sameness (no offense to vanilla!) of the rootless Valley Dude/Dudette talking "multi-cultural" mainstream, is considered bigoted and racist. In fact being called that or Neo-Confederate by the likes of them is actually a compliment!

Our enemies like to attach the term "neo" to us to suggest "neo-Nazi." Perhaps we should start calling them what they quite commonly are: neo-Communists.

Not me. I'm a Paleo-Confederate!
