She’s a traitor to her heritage and a sell out. It’ll close in a couple of years. Apparently, she hasn’t seen her audiences there. Not too many BLM members filling the seats. Just a part of the ongoing cultural genocide against the South and her history, surprisingly cheered on here at FR by supposed “Conservatives”

Excuse me. I have absolutely no use for Dolly Parton whatsoever, but you are going too far when you accuse her of being a "traitor to her heritage." Dolly Parton is from East Tennessee, and I don't know if you're aware of this, but East Tennessee was thoroughly anti-Confederate and pro-Union, even being a hotbed of abolitionism at one time. 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.

The Right has its own form of "political correctness," and one of these is that the Confederacy was run by angels and Abraham Lincoln was the world's first "Communist dictator." 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). There is also a huge case of amnesia over the fact that not everyone from the North was on one side while everyone from the South was on the other. There were many Northerners who took the Southern position while the Union armies were full of Southerners from western North Carolina, East Tennessee, north Alabama, and other places. My own Southern ancestors were Unionists and Republicans. I am as proud of this as I am of being a Southerner.

"South" is a direction on a map and a geographic region of the country. The Confederacy was a political entity that temporarily occupied this area of the country. To insist that all "real Southerners" supported it is ignorant nonsense.

You’re going to be in heap big trouble with the Southrons around here, kimosabe. They don’t cotton to pesky facts that don’t make Yankees look like the devil incarnate.

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.

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.
