Whose Blood? Whose Soil?

Over the weekend, a crowd of neo-Nazis descended on a Virginia town to protest the removal of Confederate memorials and conduct a totally-not-creepy torchlight procession. Among the slogans they chanted was the oldNazi standby "Blood and soil!" Of course, the soil that these sons of Europestood upon was stolen from Native Americans, and the blood that stained it was the blood of enslaved Africans... but these assholes would never acknowledge that, and "lack of melanin and trust funds" isn't much of a rallying cry.

I typed this out quickly on the phone while having a new tire put on the car (our roads are the pits these days), I'll clean up the linkage later.

Actually, the Nazis and the Confederacy have a lot in common, when you think about it. They went to war over a certain kind of racial purity, and they both were utterly defeated by America and her allies.

I'd say they have much to celebrate...

No doubt. The real problem in the US is that the Union never dealt properly with the ringleaders of the treason and secession. Lee, Davis, and the rest of them should have been hanged.
