There as been a flurry of activity on the net today between some of the history oriented bloggers and the Southern Heritage Drum-beaters. Brooks Simpson over at CWCrossroads has applied some heat on the true meaning behind the heritage crowd and has drawn the attention of some of it largest flunkies. I think a commenter on Michael Cushman’s SNN, Tony Gunter, had one of the best comments…
“Your YouTube channel is titled “RedShirtArmy” presumably after the 19th century militia that inflicted terrorism on African-American citizens in the south during the Redemption period. How can you take umbrage at Professor Simpson calling your organization racist? He is on much firmer ground calling you a racist than you are calling him a liberal.”
Keeping that comment in mind, I think it is also fitting the Brooks points out a certain League of the South video , posted by Michael Cushman from SNN, that actually called for the assassination of federal officials has been flagged as “offensive or inappropriate” by YouTube. It seems those who support “Flagging” got flagged!
