This falls under the rubric of “keepin’ it real.” On the Pledge of Alleigance. . .I’ve noticed that the Confederate heritage folks seem divided on whether they consider it appropriate to recite it or not. Some are quite adamant that they do not. I imagine those are the extreme types who also believe that the former Confederate states are an occupied country. Reply Kevin Levin December 13, 2011, 8:19 am I especially like the reference to American Exceptionalism at the very end. Reply Ray O'Hara December 14, 2011, 9:21 am A good point the speaker raises which many of the “Lost Cause” persuasion don’t like is that while they are allowed their views, free speech also allows their critics to criticize them in turn. And it seems the first club out of the LCer’s bag in the “you just hate the South” driver. I recently quit a Face Book CW page because I got tired of hearing “you just hate…” every time I failed to agree and heap praise on someone’s post.
