Human Events Mag. Dreams of The Good Ol’ Days of Slavery
July 1, 2010
(ChattahBox)—Human Events magazine, the source for all things right-wing, with plenty of hate and bigotry to keep its readers entertained, is now promoting a book that “shatters the stereotypes” of the Old South. The tome, “The Politically Incorrect Guide to the Civil War,” is a literary wet dream for racists and Neo-Confederates everywhere. The book “exposes the truth about the South, slavery, and states’ rights,” according to an email sent out by Human Events Editor in Chief Thomas S. Winter.
Described by the publisher, as a “joyful myth-busting rebel yell,” that all “Southern partisans” should own, it’s available free with a paid subscription to Human Events. This fine right-wing pamphlet is always coming up with cool bigoted stuff. Last Christmas, Human Events promoted a heart-warming little Holiday jingle, called “Illegal Aliens In My Yard,” sung to the tune of “Feliz Navidad.”
Talking Points Memo flagged the email promoting “The Politically Incorrect Guide to the Civil War,” in glowing terms:
“Dear Fellow Conservative:
Civil War buffs, Southern partisans, and everyone who is tired of liberals vilifying America’s greatest heroes — must have this book on their bookshelf. It shatters the stereotypes and exposes the truth about the South, slavery, and states’ rights.”
The link taking recipients to a subscription ordering page, offers additional endorsements, such as highlighting the “most devastatingly politically incorrect chapter of all, ‘What if the South Had Won”’
In other words, just imagine a world in which slavery was still legal. That Socialist, secret Muslim black fellow in the White House would be working on a Southern plantation instead, in chains.
The mind reels.
