2. All these older Southern evangelicals were surely strong segregation supporters 50 years ago

I have no doubt about it.

3. Absolutely. I made that point a little while ago in another thread.

4. Exactly - and every time you hear a complaint about "PC" behavior and speech

keep in mind that its usually complaining about how you just can't hate and discriminate like you could in the good old days.

5. They need an "other"

for which to blame all their problems. In the 50s it was the colored or negro problem.

6. Ain't it the truth, ain't it the truth.

Hannity Insanity would be there, serving sandwiches, and O'Reilly would be mixing the malts.

Yeah, sure, sure.
