    I must be missing something but how do you show southern hospitality when you are carrying arms? how do you show no racism when the whole confederacy was based on it? I guess I am just not bright enough to work it out.

    I guess the real test of their sincerity is if some down home southern brothers and sisters of color (I'm including any color/race) showed up with some potluck family recipes and we see how they are received.

    I don't recommend anyone actually do this. Anyone with any sense of self preservation should keep their recipes at home and have a nice backyard cookout with friends and family instead. I was just at one this past weekend, black and white and Asians in attendance. A good peaceful time was had by all.

    There is a good healthy majority in this country quietly and normally getting along in backyards and churches and camps and soccer games all across America. Southern hospitality is alive and well and black and white families have been practicing it TOGETHER for most of my lifetime. And we don't need to praise the dead Confederacy to feel or celebrate southern heritage. We need to bring the food, though!

    Right now extremists on both sides are bringing the cray cray at all these big public things.

    That's gonna be a tough sell.
    Emotions are still very raw after Charlottesville.

    I can see this going a few ways...

    1. People wisely stay away that aren't invited, and let them have their rally. Make all your comments from outside observations. The confederate supporters will get to spin their message of being misunderstood, and push 'the Lost Cause' narrative a little further in the media.

    2. Protestors do show up, and the confederate supporters can ride the victimhood train protestors gave them free tickets to.

    3. It goes bad. Either Anitifas wanting to shoot any cause in the foot. Or Militias pretending to act as security take it as a pretense to wage a conflict.

    I wish it wasn't happening at all so soon after Charlottesville, but some people feel they have to send a message.

    Hopefully it's a peaceful message.

    I guess in the South, nothing say "welcome" like a loaded gun. Enjoy some dip, everyone!

    In his defense, all races are welcome. The Scandinavian White, the classic Arian White, the Easter-European White*, the Redneck White, the Classic White-Rural-American Toothless-******** White.

    It's diversity day, baby!

    * (excludes the Far-Easter-European White, as they have slightly slanted eyes. They should all die. Inferior dogs.)

    Wait, you went from Bernie who is a socialist to supporting Trump who is literally the exact opposite? I mean, the last 48 hours clearly shows his standing. He's a nationalist at heart.

    How????

    So you think a armed mob is welcoming do you? Maybe you should try integrating into one of these that are popping up everywhere.

    It's an interesting attempt at least. Right now Confederate supporters don't have a good image. I'm still perplexed as to why celebrating a time when the country was literally divided into two nations that were warring and 600,000 countrymen died is considered "patriotism", but whatevs. If it's peaceful and it's not about racism, then I'm not going to slam it.

    Southern hospitality is a real thing that should be celebrated, so... why not make this just about the South and just drop all the crap about the Confederacy? There was Southern culture long before and long after the Confederacy, which lasted all of a whopping 4 years before getting crushed in a disastrous war that killed nearly a million people.

    1. it's an open invite, like I said if you don't like it simply don't go, why is that hard for you to understand?
    2. far better things to do with my time Steve.
