Role reversal: Left establishment vs Right counter-culture 1

Southern nationalist secessionists vs Leftist educator/businessman

Southern nationalist secessionists vs liberal educator/businessman

Those of us who weren’t alive in the 1960s have likely seen clips from television and movies showing Right-wingers chastising hippies and liberals over their long hair, casual demeanor and less-than-formal dress. Conservatives also often used rhetoric about how liberals were traitors and should leave the United States. Pro-Vietnam War veterans complaining about how Jane Fonda was an enemy of America immediately comes to mind. The Left was then the rising counter-culture, which went on to be destroyed in the 1972 US presidential election but take over the Democratic Party and progressively acquire more influence and power in society.

My how things have changed from the days when The Beatles’ haircuts scandalized establishment conservatives and delighted counter-culture liberals!

Recently, the League of the South, a Southern nationalist organisation, unveiled a billboard with the message of ‘secede’ in front of the State capital building in Tallahassee, Florida. Dr Michael Hill, League president, described the motivation for Southern independence, writing in a recent article, ‘If the South is going to survive, especially against a flood tide of massive Third World immigration and leftist attempts to destroy her very cultural and political foundations, she is going to have to seek her independence and govern herself.’ On the day it was unveiled, League members recorded a short video in front of the billboard to promote the effort.

It doesn’t seem so. Obama may be the best recruiter for secession in the United States in the last century and a half!

Bare Chest Equality… Elsewhere Reply

Recently a group of women in New York City (who apparently believe that space aliens visited their French leader – that is a bizarre story in itself) rallied for what they call ‘bare chest equality.’ Essentially, they want the right to go topless in public. And men in New York are not exactly lining up to fight this strange new front in the relentless march towards equality and sameness. In fact, crowds of people gathered around to stare and take pictures of the female protesters. To add another level of strangeness to the story, women already have the right to go topless in New York City, as the story linked below notes. What the women actually want is for communities and governments elsewhere to enact ‘bare chest equality.’ More…
