    Where do you people come up with this crap?

    The South fought the war to preserve slavery. The North fought the war to preserve the Union. I'd suggest you print this and put it somewhere where you can read it every day.
    No, they didn't. There was a movement in the Confederate Army to free the slaves led by Pat Cleburne and supported by thomas Jackson and Robert E. Lee. When General Jackson addressed the 33rd Virginia about secession, he never mentioned slavery. At Gettysburg, right before Pickett's Charge, when General Armistead inspired his soldiers he said, "Virginians! Virginians! For your land - for your homes - for your sweethearts - for your wives - for Virginia!". Nothing there about, "for the preservation of slavery". Gee, I wonder why?

    No, my friend, I have read the history books and you won't find anything, anywhere that proves that hundreds of thousands of southern men--white and black--enlisted in the Confederate Army and Navy for the soul purpose of preserving slavery.

    There's far more historical documentation that disproves the notion than there is that supports it.

    Maybe you can keep reading the crap history that calamity reads, that claims that non-slaver southerners made up the majority of Federal soldiers fighting in the Civil War. Have fun with that one!

    Ah. Now it was the Confederates who wanted to free the slaves.

    The Right Wing's alternative universe is definitely expanding. First we have the Democrats as racists; now we have Confederates as the abolishonists. I really don't know what to say. The bubble is obviously strong over there.

    Lets just say this: if the Wingnut alternative history is true, why did it take Mississippi an extra 148 years to ratify the 13th? Too busy fighting racist democrats and union insurgencies?

    You're being obtuse or purposely taking what i said out of context. I clearly meant a majority of Southerners who fought against the Confederates were non-slaveholders. This was a direct response to your post, arguing that slaveholders were the ones fighting for the union.

    The alternative universe, I guess taking statements out of context helps solidify the delusions.

    Maybe our wingnut friends can explain why we don't really need the 13th Amendment, and that Mississippi was just defending liberty by not ratifying what is clearly a Union Conspiracy to take away our Rights.

    Ron Paul Says He Would Have Voted Against Civil Rights Act - COLORLINES

    Do you ever bother to do any research before you post your knee jerk defense of right wing bull****?
    Do you? It's never that simple with Ron Paul. You're the knee jerk reactor.

    because of its infringement on private property rights. He said that while he would favor repealing Jim Crow laws, the United States “would be better off” without government intruding on and policing personal lives. When Chris Matthews pressed the issue, asking if it should be legal for shop owners to not allow blacks, Paul responded, “That’s ancient history. That’s over and done with.”
    You know that segregation was already on its way out, and the law didn't suddenly change everyone's mind. Why don't you do some research before trying to paint Ron Paul as being against civil rights.

    So Rosa Parks never needed to make a stand by sitting in the front of the bus? The Southern Gentlemen were about to hand their seat over to her anyway.

    MLK had no reason to march in Selma. Bull Connor was only giving the Blacks a bath with those firehoses?

    Talk about "fail". That has to be the stupidest comment in all the posts I've seen during all the years I've debated Southern apologists.

    No, THEY use to be DixieCrats, and now theyr'e Democrats. They just put their sheets away in favor of building massive voter farms and enabling generational Dependency.

    You guys call the South racist, but whats the unemployment rate for blacks under Obama.

    A Democrat by any other name is still a democrat.
