Interesting choice of words. "Beta male, soy drinking hypocrites & depressed feminists" rather than 'soyboy betacucks & legbeards.' Aimed at boomers rather than zoomers, I guess.

I hate that guy.  I'd like to kick his head in.
I've given it serious thought. I must scorn the ways of my family, and seek a Japanese woman to yield me my progeny. He shall live in the lands of the east, and be well tutored in his sacred trust to weave the best traditions of Japan and the Sacred South together, until such time as he (or, indeed his house, which will periodically require infusion of both Southern and Japanese bloodlines of note) can deliver to the South it's independence, either in this world or in space.  -Lettow April of 2011

I don't think anybody alive today is being blamed for 19th century events.
If we can hit that bull's-eye, the rest of the dominoes will fall like a house of cards. Checkmate!

Yes but it helps to pretend they were when creating nationalistic narratives.

It helps less than they think.  If indentured servitude is a form of slavery so would sharecropping.  So guess what?  There are people living that were slaves.  Slave reparations are back on!

“There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable.

There is another theory which states that this has already happened.”

I think recent developments gave them a bit more.

I think he's talking about Rachel Maddow's reaction to Teh Report.

Or more properly, Barr's summary, right?

Wow.  What a disgrace to the name "Phillip Schuyler".
"Love to my country actuates my present conduct, however it may appear inconsistent to the world, who very seldom judge right of any man's actions."

"...this was a bitter tormented soul, a sinner who mocked both gods and men. He served but found no pride in service. He fought but took no joy in victory. He drank, to drown his pain in a sea of wine. He did not love, nor was he loved himself."

For shame, Valmy! Why is your hometown so unpatriotic? :P
