So here we are this year: The Lost Causers, the Closet Lost Causers, the Lost Causers by another name, the Lost Cause Lite, the Confederate Apologists, the "Southern" apologists and the "Southern history" apologists; in that order of commitment from bold admission to merely fooling oneself; are going down as we speak.

Their BS stories, "their" monuments, their twisting of, or selective recall of, actual history is presently no longer prevailing under clear light of day, and it's about time.

One unfortunate casualty of events is that memorials to the Confederate soldier (and some Union) are being swept away in the otherwise fully-justified and correct purge of civic memorials to Confederate leaders (traitors) and "the Cause."

Another unfortunate casualty of events is that Civil War reenactments are being swept away in the otherwise fully-justified and correct purge of the use of the Confederate battle flag at reenactments (only a portion of actual Confederate units employed it in the war - despite what you see at reenactments). What hasn't helped are the BS impressions of mouthy play-Confederates (and some Union), those grey pot-bellied reenactors who have sullied the whole hobby with their uneducated and thinly-disguised excuses for their own personal racism. It's the "hey, this is what a real soldier was all about / it wasn't slavery that caused the war / I'm just giving it straight don't blame me" thing.

So good job boys, you've killed many of the otherwise legitimate history-based reenactments and living histories, now on-hold because of your selfish man-child puddle-play.

But as to the general drift of events, the current purging of Apologist symbols, may you squirm. And btw ha.

Even Ha Ha, ...in-your-face HA HA HA, ...blow-snot HA HA HA!!! Bottom rail on top, jerks!!!

True, but is going on since the Civil Rights movement. A key factor is that a more diverse voters base is detrimental to White Supremacists.
