I don't know why I should care, but I do. I just can't stand seeing racist buttholes getting their evil and insidious way over good and decent folk anywhere in the world, especially to poison the minds of children. I just watched a TV news report about the Texas board's changes to the education curriculum (yes, it's one of those 'can you believe Nigerians still burn witches' whackjob stories that makes the TV news reports around the world) regarding their changing the name of the slave trade to the more benign Atlantic Triangular Trade or somesuch nonsense and giving Jefferson Davis's words equal weight in elementary school history books as Abe Lincoln's. As well as giving weight to post-Reagan conservtism without any counter-balance. Avid 'conservatives' voting to demote the conservative Republican Party's founder and figurehead to be equal to the anti-USA enemy he conquered? Who'd a thunk it? Why raise post-Reagan era 'conservatism' at the same time? Basically this confirms further my already well-confirmed belief that the far-right 'conservative' and 'Christian' movement in the USA is simply a bogus front and fake deceitful facade for neo-Confederism. These people are Confederates and should be always referred to as such. Nothing more, nothing less, despite all the misleading self-nomencature they keep disguising their true selves under. But every now and then they reveal themselves to the whole world (on my TV set on the other side of the planet) to be exactly what they are - Confederates. Trying to rebuild and restablish the Confederate States of America. All these years it's seemed that the key word in the derogatory 'New York Liberals' was 'liberal', where in fact it is actually 'New York' to mean 'northern' to represent non-Confederate southern ideology. Because it's never been about liberal versus conservative, it's always been southern versus northern ideology. Sarah Palin's popularity shows 'south' is no longer geographical, but an ideology now spread far and wide appealing to those who hate the United States of America and what it stands for. What it has always stood for. What they fought againt it for all that time ago and havng been fighting against ever since. Their Republican Party figurehead and founder is not and never will be Lincoln, it's Reagan. 'Conservatism' doesn't mean fiscal responsibility like it used to before Reagan brought all the Confederates swarming to the GOP after the wilderness years af being abandoned by the Democratic Party when Johnson signed the Civil Right act ("I didn't leave the Democratic Party, it left me"). It means pre-1861. They care not for the Republican Party 'conservatism' and never have. They want the pre-conservatism before the Republican Party. The 'heartland' of America, 'mainstream' America, 'real' Americans, a 'Christian' nation, and all the rest of their dozens of codenames that people like Palin drop all the time in speeches to applauding cheers from the crowds... all mean just one thing - Confederate. Next year is the 150th anniversary of the start of the US Civil War. You do indeed need to re-write your history books soon - 2015 will mark the 150th anniversary of the day the Confederates were not defeated.
