The Washington Post published a piece by journalist Eve Fairbanks a few weeks back titled, “The ‘reasonable rebels.'” Guess what? Everything we hate about American politics, particularly the rhetoric from the right, is because the South ruined America. That’s right. You really can’t make up this kind of stupidity, but Eve Fairbanks tried. You see, there is really nothing to modern right wing political discourse. It’s all just repackaged Confederate drivel. There is much to take apart here. I discuss her positions and arguments in this episode of The Brion McClanahan Show.
