“Ignorant”? Seriously? Nothing to do with that. Of course Tennesseeans know they were Union.
I wasn’t referring to a literal Civil War South v. North, just general southern mindset, which does exist in TN. I was born in PA, raised in NY, and I’m proud to be part of the south — Dixie — now.
And they’re pissed about the overall caving to political correctness — which Dolly is doing.
I heard too many comments about Dolly’s good.reputatiom and character over the years so I give her benefit if doubt.
You are right about there being a different mindset in Tennessee than in the leftist urban coastal culture. But I think that divide is more rural versus urban than north and south. And rural culture should not be linked closely to the Confederacy, a power-grabbing movement that ruthlessly exploited the common man, both black and white.
Much like their Northern counterparts.
“In fact, when East Tennesseans wanted to exercise their “right to secede” (which Confederates insisted everyone had), the slimy hypocrites in Nashville and Richmond wouldn’t let them and even sent a whole Confederate army to keep them in the Confederacy by force.”
Massacred resistor’s too.
It’s hypocrisy to care about that compromises your own country while not caring about things that compromise another country that doesn’t even exist anymore, and hasn’t existed during mine, my parents, or my grandparents lifetime?
That’s a strange definition of hypocrisy you’ve got there.
‘Now tell me where Im wrong?’
you asserted that FR is a place where Southern heritage is spat upon, and then, to back it up, you throw out the idiotic notion that those who do not despise Lincoln are the instigators of it; a ridiculous assertion on its face...please indicate where someone on this forum opined that cemeteries with Confederate dead should be dug up and the remains placed in a big ditch, and covered up with salted earth, which is what you implied...
At every one of these meetings and rallies, they trot out their token white person who talks about traitors and evil people.
what meetings are you going on about...?
