Symbol of Secession 2.0
A liberal rainbow coalition charge conservative calls for secession from the union as " racist " in the wake of Obama's re-election victory.
Instant messaged images of the War Between the States and American captives flash in their fevered minds.
Sounds right, doesn't it?
This time around the "confederacy " is more a cyber-ocracy where outraged patriots ( of all colors ) frankly discuss divorcing themselves from a regime seen as against traditional values like limited government and individual sovereignty.
Conservatism is a multi-ethnic community. Lately, Its major public figure is arguably embattled Congressman Allen West, who is Black last time I checked.
His fervent following alone dismisses racism allegations, as does veneration for economist Thomas Sowell; US Supreme Justice Clarence Thomas; former Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice; liberty messengers Keith Carl Smith; Deneen Borelli and numerous others.
Secession 2.0 may be anti-Black liberal but it's also anti-liberalism period- regardless of packaging.
Those articulating this view correctly feel government is poised to control Americans through Obamacare. When ever DC can fine you for not insuring your God-given body- that's oppression!
When this measure forces religious based healthcare providers to comply with policies contrary to their beliefs- that's oppression!
When a foreign policy is pursued that favors murderers and dictators to the exclusion of supporting long time ally, Israel- that's oppression!
When Black voters defiantly vote for the president because of color alone and through proxies, this chief executive encourages it- that's oppression.
Far from a hate fest, Secession 2.0 is about love: love of country; love of traditional values; love of an evolving universal identity called American that anyone of any color; class or creed can become.
This identity has been enriched by pilgrims; slaves; confederates; abolitionists and other contributors to the culture. Their common theme was liberty, addressed from diverse perspectives.
Is Secession 2.0 based in racism or realism?
It's based in realism- the reality that government must listen to Americans who didn't vote to trade freedom for oppression in this last presidential election.
Secession 2.0 is a cry in the big government wilderness for peaceful dissenters to finally be heard- not demonized and dismissed!
