LOYAL SOUTHERNERS ARE THE ENTS OF OUR DAY | 2003-03-15
If you are a Southerner, no one is exactly on your side. For fashionable approval, everybody will sell Southerners out so fast it will make your ears ring.
To give but one example, A Scot will bust a gut if you call him an Englishman. But the Scots are the first to call all Americans "Yanks." They do it on purpose. They may beat their chests and talk about how fearlessly Scottish they are, but they are desperate to show they do not take the South seriously.
Scots want to scorn the South to show they are, at heart, not really provincials.
It's kind of pathetic. The only patriotism most American Patriots have is a common love of Lincoln and a common hostility to the South. That is about the only thing that unites Western fashionable opinion these days.
Please see May 4, 2002 - AMERICA, GET A LIFE!
A great friend of mine is very pro-French. He says the French are on our side in opposing the Iraq War.
'Fraid not. France hates Americans, especially Americans in what Hollywood and New York call "flyover country".
And most especially and above all they denounce Southerners.
Don't burn out your stomach lining about attacks on Europeans. Southerners are in the Ent Position. We are on nobody's side because, believe you me, nobody is on our side. Them and Against Us
