We don't want to live in Ted Cruz's America. He doesn't like ours. Maybe a split really is inevitable and right
Yes, I know Michele Bachmann is from Minnesota and Steve King is from Iowa, but all this proves is that in the 150 or so years since the Civil War, the vituperative Confederate agenda of anti-Americanism has managed to spread its irresistible redneck poison into benighted pockets across the country. Kind of like Waffle House.
But to deny that the current attack on the federal government isnt part of the hidebound Confederate agenda is to ignore the people who have engineered it and whose sedition will be rewarded with reelection
Much as Kentuckys Mitch McConnell did in 2010 when he said that the single most important thing we want to achieve is for President Obama to be a one-term president, Meadows legislative gambit revealed a man and a party absorbed in a classic state of Southern pique. Its a pathology sadly worthy of Calhoun and his whole sorry legacy of tantrum-throwing quack parliamentarians who want to continue enjoying all of the benefits that come with being part of the United States without having to make any of the necessary sacrifices or compromises.

YES! Please, libland, GO AWAY!
I really cannot figure out why we are always likened to Confederates. There are lots of minority people in our party and there would be more if the Left wasn’t so intimidating/scathing of the minorities who are Conservative.
We need to convince the leftists that secession is a good idea and also their idea. Nothing is good or right unless they think of it first. So let them think that...
It is an insult that resonates with libs in general and black libs in particular. Reason and rats are mutually exclusive.
We’re the confederates? Well then, let’s try for round 2 and see who comes out on top, shall we?
let the libs secede
Chuck is a Democrat, just like the KKK and Bull Connor and that woman who began Planned Parenthood in order to exterminate blacks.
No wonder he wants to secede.
And he’s wrong now. Show him a red/blue map on a county or district scale and he’ll change his mind in a hurry.
If Red State American secedes, who will feed the welfare parasites and other EBT ‘rats in the Blue urban zones?
My impulse to these people is to exterminate them all, with no exception for kids, budgies and small kittens.
Ashes to ashes.
If you drop the dripping sarcasm and the open hatred from the article it would have been have pretty decent and a lot shorter.
“We need to convince the leftists that secession is a good idea and also their idea.”
We are incompatible and if you would go your own way and let us have America as she has always been, then you
on the left can create your GOD-less and socialist entity instead of destroying ours. I refuse to live in your dream world and I will never accept it. Best we divide.
I prefer purge.
The northeast should be purged from America. The trash should be just thrown out
It's an Alinsky tactic, the subtext of which is that TEA Party Conservatives are necessarily racist by associating the movement with the Confederacy, never mind the overlooked fact that the old time secessionists and slave owners were all Democrats, and that it was the Republican Party that ended slavery and then fought the Ku Klux Klan (again all Democrats).
All the Red Counties should be self-sufficient after the Blue Counties leave. Sounds like a great plan!
Texas could survive very nicely alone, but we would have to have a severe border policy with fences and land mines to keep from being over-run by the starving Left and their Dependent Class.
I’m dedicated to BLUE STATES in accordance to the 1980 and 1984 election wins by Ronald Reagan.
The alphabet network TV “news” shows flipped the colors, after that, in order to confuse west coast voters.
RED STATES despite the liberal media effort and propaganda, remain COMMUNIST / LEFTIST / PROGRESSIVE / SOCIALIST !
Geographically, we only need two states. LibState would be made up of the nation’s metropolitan areas and Right-State would be everywhere else. So be it we have islands.
Actually, separating the territory once known as “the United States of America” into distinct republics reflecting the political disposition of the majority within those districts, and following Congressional districts rather than state boundaries, would result in one nearly contiguous “red” electoral country, and a number of much smaller “blue” electoral republics, clustered on the East and West coasts, and part of the so-called “Rust Belt” surrounding the Great Lakes. There may also be some really isolated pockets in and around cities notorious for their ultra-progressive public universities or their history as the state capital, but their very isolation would soon result in their dissolution as a separate republic and reabsorption into the “red” country.
The “blue” republics would soon find, that without the flow of revenue and tribute from the surrounding “red” country, they sink into a real cesspool of despair and anarchy, much like Detroit already has become.
“America” has come to mean some very different things to any number of people, and today, there is little agreement as to just what constitutes “American ideals”.
The Confederacy wasn’t racist, it was status quo. Lincoln was one of the biggest racist there ever was. Need I quote Lincoln on his plan to deport ALL blacks or how he thought the black man would always be the inferior?
They hate freedom and they aren’t changing.
Now that’s a good thought
Talk about projection!!! Their psychological projectiion is enough to cause physical projection.
More horse sh*t from Salon.
They are always soooo......superior. rofl
Brilliant idea....we can call it "Libernetticut".
Session to be taken seriously, some would argue it can never be taken seriously, has to be done state by state. A lot of northerners know that and know they would be “left behind” in Socialist Utopia. Sorry but move you asses South.
If I 95 and I 81 were shut down at the Virginia line, The blue zone would be in trouble
If any libtards want to secede they are more than welcome to take their liberal cesspools and go. Here's the thing though. There will be no monetary aide, in fact no aide of any kind coming from real America. There will be no immigration for you. Once you've decided to live in the progressive liberal paradise you create, you will be staying there. You will not be allowed to change your mind and immigrate back to real America, ever. We don't want your idiotic, unworkable ideas and ideals to pollute our political landscape ever again.
So, any libtards want to go live in someplace like that? I'm sure there are a few true believers out there. But most libtards, once they realize they won't be allowed to live off the successes and fruits of others' labor, lordly distributing it as they see fit...well, they back out fast.
It is indeed no accident that the red and blue state idea was deliberately flipped to eliminate the association between liberalism and communism. “Red” always indicated leftism.
The point here is that the libs are trying to convince low info voters that the southern Confederacy was the only racist element in America at that time, and that by associating the TEA Party movement with it, they are planting seeds in the backs of those voters minds that the TEA Party is in effect racist too, when it clearly is not.
“They won’t let us enslave them! Why are they so mean?!”
They can have fiat currency and the Fed; we’ll have PM based currency.
They can keep the welfare cases, bureaucrats, and government teachers; we’ll have productive citizens, rule of law, and home and private schools
They can have government granted rights; we’ll have natural rights.
They can have victim disarmament zones; we’ll have the right to defend ourselves with firearms.
It won’t take long to see which society will prosper.
The food producers should simply starve them until all dead.
The land could be used.
He's not the only, one, and there have been enough other insinuations that I have no doubt that it has actually gone out as a lib talking point somewhere, possibly on another hidden Journolist-type forum.
This column from WaPo last week was one of the first to come right out and make that accusation:
Hey! I LIKE budgies and small kittens! They don’t grow up to be welfare parasites and hate-filled criminals.
Well don’t fall for it. They can only hook the 2 things together if you let them. Blacks think every white in the south is a cracker racist. That is never going to change. You will never be on the same side with the majority of blacks - ever. The Confederate Flag and other false connotations do not exacerbate the racist situation. With 50 years of AA and defacto reparations, the situation HAS ONLY GOTTEN WORSE.
Yeah there were idiots here in Michigan who wanted to secede when Bush was president. I took particular joy in reminding them that they’re surrounded by enemies within the state that they would have to deal with first.
0bamaland, where adherence to the Constitution is considered ‘Anti-American’.
Separate from the communist, Obama-voting, dopehead, fag-marriage “blue states?”
Yes, I’d support and vote for that in a split-second.
The SOUTH was right?! Oh, yeah, I guess it was!
With A&M’s Manziel as Secretary of the Army?
Well, I'm not, but the low information, badly educated voters are, and I'm seeing this ugly little "racist" meme getting spread around by the libs everywhere, particularly in social media. That's how the "new Confederacy" column came up on my radar, a lib friend of mine posted it thinking that it was a fine piece of writing.
