    Bud, Coors, Miller…nothing but “Dutch” Yankee beer at the Confederate Bar and Cafe. Of course it is in North Dakota, so getting a case of Abita or Dixie is probably not easy.

      How did you know that, Ken? Is this a frequent stop on your book tours?

    Well as you can’t say “no Negroes welcom” directly a huge CBF will have do to get the point across

    Interpret, I do not need to interpret. Its a nice way of saying “whites only.”

    Not South Dakota?

      I believe it is McClusky, North Dakota.

        When I drove across North Dakota years ago, I saw a car covered with neo-Confederate stickers – the “Heritage Not Hate” type.

          Would you believe that I saw a Confederate Bumper Sticker in England? I got the chance to speak to him. Transplanted Confederate. Poor Guy.

            Of course I believe it – did you think we didn’t have rednecks here? And Brits who display the CBF know exactly what they mean by it – no double-talk about “heritage” – just plain racism.

    They haven’t invited me yet. No, just thirty seconds and the power of Google.

    I see you’ve found the family business. Come by for a cold one sometime.

    Perhaps it’s galvanized?

    Maybe they came down from Canada like the St Alban’s raid!!!
