Youre going to be in heap big trouble with the Southrons around here, kimosabe. They dont cotton to pesky facts that dont make Yankees look like the devil incarnate.
Our pastor did, he just spent 12 hours repairing the damage done by left wing hackers to his 2008 thoughts on ChristianPatriot.com
I am aware of the history of East Tennessee. I am entitled to my opinion as you are entitled to yours. As you are aware, those of us who had Confederate ancestors are seeing their honor and their memory and even their grave sites dishonored on a daily basis, by those who have no honor. It is only a matter of time, before they come for your idols.
Sure. They use you and folks like you as an example of what “right thinking” whites believe. You may not do it intentionally, but you assist them in their mission to destroy the last remaining vestiges of Southern culture when you use words like “traitor.”
There you go bringing facts to the discussion.
THE CONFEDERATE AIR FORCE FLIES AT LAST by Dan Jenkins, 1963.
Confederate Air Force adopts another name, Amarillo Globe, 2001.
"CAF officials said the old name and its "confederate" stereotype inhibited the group's ability to raise funds from image-conscious corporations."
Too bad Dolly has sold out to the PC crowd. Dolly Pardon has gone full blown Hollywood. Her audience no doubt consists of Southern country music lovers and Northerners who want to experience a “Southern venue”
Her theme park has as much to do with authentic Country Music and culture as Disney world has to authentic Medieval fairy tales.
Dollywood will be a shell of it’s former self and collapse as tourist attraction. Probably before her mortal demise.
There is nothing original about Dolly Pardon anymore than her shame marriage.
Much as the real Dolly Pardon exists as a silicone, face lifted(among other parts)botoxed Frankenstein horror spackled with
pancaked make-up clown creation of the pharmaceutical and plastic surgery industry.
"Stampede"? Sounds like a zeppelin race to me...
Sounds like fun. Too bad I never got to see it.
I’m a Lincoln lover and never once thought of men Like Robert E Lee or Stonewall Jackson to be traitors. Jefferson Davis, yeah, guilty there. Now it’s all just history. I never hear anybody talk negatively about the South where I live in Illinois.
I’ve read Shelby Foote’s 9 volume saga about the CW twice. I think anyone who reads up on the civil war would likely respect both sides, especially now that over 150 years has passed.
And there’s the difference. Folks can have varying opinions on Lincoln and of course being from Illinois, that makes sense. Just check out some of the WBS threads and you’ll see what I’m talking about.
‘Your ilk and the rest of the Lincoln lovers, who enable these thugs’
what a remarkably intelligent and enlightened comment...compliments...
‘Youre going to be in heap big trouble with the Southrons around here, kimosabe.’
we may have to call out the National Guard for his protection...
Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge, Knoxville and East Tennessee were generally pto-Union during the Civil War. The word Dixie should not be associated with anything concerning East Tennessee.
“Everything Lincoln did that “constitutionalists” bellyache about was done by Jefferson Davis first He is forgiven for his centralizing tyranny and his experiments in state socialism (which the Union didn’t engage in).”
Meh, Jefferson Davis wasn’t President of the United States. I really don’t care if he violated whatever constitutional principles the confederacy had. I do, however care that Lincoln violated the constitutional principle of our country, setting a precedent for all the others that followed him.
Thank you for that admission of hypocrisy.
Of course it was political correctness. We live in E TN, about an hour from Dollywood. People here are vowing never to go again if “Dixie” is removed from the name. I expect that’s a general opinion of most of the south. People here are proud of the word.
Thank you. Now tell me where I’m wrong? At every one of these meetings and rallies, they trot out their token white person who talks about “traitors” and “evil people.” Does that include Gen. Corcoran and the Southern Irish Brigade? It’s easy to heap scorn on 19th century society through 21st century eyes.
On June 8 1861, East Tennessee voted 32,923 to 14,780 to remain in the Union. East Tennesseeans need to quit being ignorant about their history and start to embrace and honor their pro-Northern heritage.
