The other day, Hunter noted Fox News pundit Todd Starnes' latest attempt to argue that Hollywood is destroying American values.
Then I perused the front page, and it's hard not to miss that the South and Republicans are, well, different than the rest of us. There was TomP's Republican States' Rejection of Medicaid Expansion Is "Almost Awesome in its Evilness"; Jim Demint(ed) trying to argue that emancipation was not the result of action by big government; poopdogcomedy's TX-Gov: Abbott (R) Advisor Charles Murray, "No evidence that women are significant thinkers"
And Meteor Blades posted a really incredible map showing where executions in the US have occurred since 1977.
Then I sat down to finish watching the movie, Amistad.
The movie, I suppose, is another example of how Hollywood is destroying the moral fiber of America. In fact, I am quite certain that when Republicans and conservatives watch it, they turn livid with rage. I bet that their get so enraged, they don't even watch the entire move. The movie ends with a magnificent performance by Anthony Hopkins, portraying an aged John Quincy Adams arguing before the Supreme Court on behalf of the Africans demanding their freedom. I think it really sums up what our struggle is all about.
What is the natural state of man?
Is it slavery, as John Calhoun and the oligarchs of the South argued?
Or is it freedom?
"And if the South is right? . . . . I have a modest suggestion."
". . . . and if it means civil war, then, let it come. And when it does, may it, finally, be the last battle of the American Revolution."
