"Lincoln did not start the war."
You mean the American civil war?
If so you are right.
"The rebs did."
Ok, And your point is?
"The secessionists were nothing more than glorified outlaws"
A matter of oppinion.
They had a grivance, They could have negotiated, instead they resorted to war.
I would call them stupid.
The rest of your post is word salad.

How are we meant to take someone who uses "Obooombi" seriously?

Translation to english: "Waah, i wanted the slavers to win out of pure spite towards a lame president!"

The South had a number of excellent military commanders, it's true; but their record of political astuteness is pretty sorry.
And if they had more of each than the North ever had, how come the South got its ass kicked?
You'd like to not only forget who won, but try for a rerun? Be my fucking guest, and we'll watch you go down in flames yet again.
1/4/2011 3:55:57 PM
Obooombi? What are you, 12?
1/4/2011 4:10:02 PM
If only... IF ONLY the Freeper had stopped at the first paragraph. Does anyone here still think they aren't Neo-Nazis?
As for secession... JUST TRY IT BUB! The U.S. military will kick your racist, bigoted ass!

@D Laurier: I'm pretty sure the first line is a previous post to which the idiot's ramblings are supposed to be (and fail miserably at being) a rebuttal to.

How much longer did this take to type because he used Oboooombi?
1/4/2011 5:36:06 PM
Typical Freeper Bs...You know sometimes I really do feel we should of let these losers go, they are nothing more than a bunch of whine babies who are too stupid and are always more than happy to vote against their own good.

Read the Timeline 191 series to see just what might have happened had the South won. If you can manage a book that long. They 'kind of' turned into pricks like you.
1/4/2011 6:03:33 PM
Wow, a new fail spelling of our President's name. Has anyone made a list yet? After all por litterazie es kewl.

Yes, you would be right about who did and didn't start the Civil War if you didn't dismiss it as some kind of "liberal-esque propaganda".
Granted the Confederacy, like what Lucilius said, did have very good, experienced officers in their military. They also had a very distinct and unique culture, but it was a culture that included and endorsed the inhumane institution of slavery.
Socialist, fascist, and communist are completely different and are incompatible to one another.
By the way, the United States of America never recognized the Confederate States of America, and neither did any other country in the world at that time.
In conclusion, I leave these last two sayings I have heard numerous times in my life:
The winners of war write the history.
Those who don't learn from the past are doomed to repeat.

If so, why did they lose the war?, maybe because their monocultivation system, the reason why they wanted to keep slavery?
1/5/2011 3:14:14 AM
Because the meaning of each one of those words clearly escapes you!

Please, DO leave, and take Texas with you.

Actually, there are some pretty good alternative history novels about what could have happened if the South had seceded successfully. In one of them, the southern states are Mexico Norte.
1/5/2011 6:54:27 AM
Um, the rebels DID start the war. Remember Ft. Sumter?
And when are you stupid rednecks ever going to give up the idea that the South will somehow rise again? It ain't ever going to happen. But really, though, if they wanted to, I'd let Alabama secede only if all the right-wing bible thumpers in the country would move there and make it their glorified Christian theocracy they so desperately crave.

Now wait a minute...
He's certainly wrong, but what part about this is racist? Is any defense of the south automatically judged as racism?

"Is any defense of the south automatically judged as racism?"
Neo-Confederates can either be called racists or traitors. Take your pick.
1/5/2011 1:19:40 PM
At this point in modern history, I'd be glad if the NeoCon bigots & fundies would seceed from the rest of the USA. Gather them up in a big chunk of the deep South, create Jeebusland & let the rest of the good ol' US of A continue to exist in the truly All-American, Progressive, Secular Government, Melting-Pot, E Pluribus Unum Way....without these idiots puting a moneywrench in "The Great Experiment".
I don't see why this is in RSTDT, apart from the "Obooombi" bit. But folks conjure up names like "Dubya", "The Shrub", "Raygun", "Slick Willie"....
1/5/2011 2:52:26 PM
What about the 1% reasonable minded? Do we really have to suffer through GUNS BABIES and JAY-ZUS?
1/5/2011 11:15:06 PM
I have the list right here:
Barack NOjoba (yes... That's what they called him)
The rest was just regular run of the mill racist terms. Still... Anyone who is mad that slavery has ended has the mentality of a child, no matter how many degrees he or she has obtained

Well, I guess that the reason it comes off as racist is because to say that you wish the South prevailed is the same as saying you wish that Nazi Germany prevailed.
Even if you try to claim that you didn't mean slavery or the holocaust in it, you really can't have one (Southern/Nazi victory) without the other (Slavery/Holocaust).
