the Union...

modern Republicans do not know who Lincoln is, what he did and what he stood for, but instead tried to keep the Confederate statues in every southern State and tried to suppress non-white votes. Because history is written by the Conservatives and Jefferson Davis and Robert Lee are what the Republicans thought of what America is about...

Only history is not written by the Conservatives. If we were to call an Elephant's tail a leg, then how many legs would an Elephant have? Four, of course, because even a fool knows that calling a tail a leg doesn't make it so. And those that revere the Confederacy do so for the very same reason many revere Pirates, or Gunslingers, even Ninjas. Romance. Real pirates are unsavory characters with no honor. Ruthless and bloodthirsty thugs, thieves, rapists, murderers. Gunslingers, mercenaries as often as not on the wrong side of the law. The people who wave the confederate flags and honor the likes of Lee aren't making a statement of hate or bigotry. They aren't even celebrating real history. It's a rebooted, remixed, recolored, and formatted to fit this screen, BASED on a retelling of an actual event although the names were changed, edited for television version of history.

I ask you, when the Internet, especially Pastafarians, celebrate Pirates are they celebrating rape, murder, theft and destruction? What a foolish notion. Of course not! What idiot thinks that pirates actually went around with parrots on their shoulder going ARRRRRRR! We be off to bury our treasure ARRRRRRR! AWK! Bury Our Treasure! AWK! ARRRRRR! AWK! ARRRRRR! AWK!?

Sure, there are some fringe bat shit insane wingnuts but they've ALWAYS been there. The thing is their voice is getting Magnified through the use of bots. It's proven, no one of any consequence denies it. So it makes things seem a little off kilter but you just got to remember who's doing the talking. I mean, you got people, like admitted pedophiles. You got convicted felons. You got people with severe mental illness so bad they're in and out of the hospital on a monthly. And they link to each other like that's supposed to be truth, I mean it's like these fucking Sovereigns. You seen these wack-a-doodles? You know? And the thing is, you just don't engage the fuckers.

Ok, like Lincoln himself. What did he tell you about fools? You remember?

You can fool all the people some of the time, and some of the people all the time, but you cannot fool all the people all the time.

Americans are pretty foolish sometimes. But we're also cynical and being both consumers and producers--the vast majority of us both produce goods or provide services as well as being consumers of goods and services--in the foremost Capitalist Society in the World we realize pretty quick when we're being sold a bill of goods.

This is a bubble, just like an economic bubble but this is a political and cultural bubble. And like all bubbles, it will pop in due course.
