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.
