“The South Under Siege”—It’s about time we woke up!

About five years ago now author Clint Johnson wrote a revealing book called The Politically Incorrect Guide to the South (and Why It Will Rise Again). I expect a book with that title did not gladden the hearts of the many liberals and socialists out there who have dedicated their efforts toward destroying what was left of the Old South so they could replace it with the “new” (Marxist) South where Obama is king and we eagerly await the next boatload of illegal immigrants from anywhere so they can be registered to vote for the “Great One.”
In an article by Ivy Sellers in Human Events Clint Johnson noted: “The South is under attack because it is the last region of the nation to resist being homogenized into an amorphous mass of people who think alike, sound alike, vote alike, buy alike. Nothing angers politicians, marketers, pollsters, and the politically correct crowd more than a group of people who absolutely refuse to get into line…While the South has always been rebellious, these days it’s become a cultural battlefield where the whole concept of Southern history is under attack. Displaying the Confederate battle flag, preserving Confederate statues on public and private property, even singing the song Dixie are under fire as ‘divisive,’ ‘racist,’ ‘hate-filled,’ ‘bigoted,’ and every other PC description imaginable.” I can attest to the truth of Mr. Johnson’s statements. My wife and I have lived in the South for ten years now and I see a constant, ever-increasing stream of vitriolic anti-Southern propaganda coming down the pike with every passing year.
