News Flash: We’ve Been Betrayed by Establishment Conservatives


As Paul Gottfried pointed out recently, “No one on the Left sounds as unhinged as ‘conservative’ journalists like Max Boot (Furling the Confederate flag is just the start). Or for that matter, Jeff Jacoby (The Confederate flag is anti-American).” And Gottfried is right – it’s not just Establishment Conservatives in the media who are attacking their own base – the most shrill, hysterical slander against Southern heritage has come from “conservative” Republicans in office. For example, here’s Gottfried again in a piece entitled “The NeoCons’ Confederate Problem.” And if you have the stomach for it, watch Republican Jenny Horne screech that the “symbol of hate” flying on the South Carolina capital grounds MUST be removed: (Says she's related to Jefferson Davis:  What a disgrace. BT)

    I use to see this type in the Georgia State Hospital, insane asylum.

    1. I imagine the Tea Party will run someone against her and hopefully she will lose. What a repugnant individual.

    1. Really. It's difficult to believe that they really want Bush for the candidate.
