The Gift That Keeps On Giving is predictably upset about the Memphis City Council’s move to change the names of three parks. Story here.
There’s nothing worthy of note there, but there is in the nature of some of the reactions–at least this one.
What makes this worthy of note is the link at the posting. So far I’ve seen no one there protest it. It’s a link to a site called “Southern Nationalist Network.”
Let’s take a look at some items in the article.
“It should be noted that Memphis’s population is now 62% Black and less than 30% White.” — Why should we note that?
” ‘New South’ democracy and equality mean that Southern heroes are cast aside while people (such as those who staff the local government) with no regard for the historic Southern identity and culture of the city are allowed to push their anti-Southern and anti-White agenda.” — So then anyone who isn’t a confederate can’t possibly be a “southern hero,” and anyone who’s not white is by definition “anti-South.” I guess to these folks there can’t be any southerners who are of any race but Caucasians. Interesting.
Let’s take a look at a couple comments from the loyal readers at the site.

With a large dusky population, what would one expect!

No doubt with White, Northern Trendy-Lefties egging them on in the background. Too many Southerners ignore this fact. There’s nearly always a Yankee at the bottom of it.
At least one other member of TGTKOG gave the posting a “Like.”
Hmmm. Why would anyone think neoconfederates are racists?
