Great post on RedState.com about the GOP Right Wing and why it is hard for many in the GOP to support their views about the Civil War.
Jim says, “Worrying about what the left might do next is less of an issue for me than knowingly allying myself with people like this. This is not a person who understands what liberty means. He has no grasp of what “all men are created equal” means. He has a pretty questionable idea of what “Christian” means as well. I don’t want to hear the arguments about how the Civil War wasn’t about slavery. If it was even a little bit about slavery, it was about slavery, and the Confederate men being honored with statues were fighting to keep people enslaved. That’s not worthy of our respect. They chose the wrong side.”
