“It’s very pitiful that they would take down everybody’s logo to shield the people of Leesburg,” said Bragdon Bowling Jr., director of public relations for the Sons of the Confederate Veterans international headquarters. “Are they from Virginia or New York? The Confederacy unfortunately happens to be a part of their history. [This] makes them look like a bunch of cultural Marxists.”
Here we have another example of the standard formula or argument: First, reduce southern history to four years of Confederate history, mix in a naieve and uninformed distinction between North and South, and finally add a dash of insult utilizing terminology that fails to pick out anything of interest. Let simmer for 30 minutes and pray that someone will find it informative. Unfortunately, many will.
