  •  Idiotic spin? The issue is secession... (0+ / 0-)

    not racism or segregation or Jim Crow or reconstruction.  On the topic of secession my point (which I qualified as my opinion) was that if we'd hung the leaders (as the traitors that they were) then we wouldn't have wingnuts in the modern era considering the proposition and discussing it on TV.

    My use of the term "them" was never intended to encompass the inhabitants of all red states nor all "Confederates" nor all bigots.  "Them" refers to the secessionists in our midst.

    As far as an "us vs them" mentality...  I think you're reading too much into my comment.
