    On a semi-related note, the AJC ran a story today about how the Civil War Monuments in the National Parks system are being vandalized. In particular, Union memorials were being targeted for single-car vehicle accidents and paint-ball spatter.

    I can't stand what they stand for, but I have to give most of them credit (except for possibly the one cropped out on the right) for standing up unmasked for what they believe in. No matter how incredibly hateful it may be, they have the right to peacefully speak their minds just like the rest of us.

    And they have the right to get that ass kicked free of charge. This is AmerikkKa, dam it!

    Well, yeah. Just because you have the right to speak freely, that doesn't mean you can't face retribution.

    I see bobblehead, trounced and lyman. Couple of those guys may be guests, though.

    Antietam is a creek.
    Sharpsburg is the town.
    And assholes live everywhere.

    (Damn, should have stuck this on Lou's thread)
  8. DH is right about Antietam/Sharpsburg. FYI, the North named battles after geographical landmarks (rivers, etc), South after cities and towns (in general, obviously Gettysburg an exception). That's why it's called the Battle of Bull Run in the North, but First (and Second) Manassas in the South. Having lived above and below the M-D Line, I got used to hearing it both ways.

    I assume you were answering Boots question and not my Blues Brothers reference.

    Just wanted to make clear the idiots wearing swastikas were from NoVa: http://www.nsmofnova.org/

    Oh, didn't bother checking that part. That area is close enough to three other states, so crossing state lines to get there is as easy as crossing the border from Mexico.

    And like offensive TV, we also have the option of just ignoring them and not listening to their hate-filled vitriol. Of course, like the debates with gay bashers on this site, it's also enjoyable to debate them on their own merits.

    No offense to the many fine southerners on the board, but the fact that there are some down south who hold on to those distinctions (and others from the Civil War), well, it's pretty pathetic.
