Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

Tue Nov 20, 2012, 08:11 AM

The ONLY place I find incessant discussion about the Civil War [View all]

is on DU. Among friends, family, Waffle House patrons and other groups or places where I find myself, that doesn't come up as a topic of discussion.

I would have to find one of those regressive groups of Neanderthals in order to hear it as much as I do here. The other place might be among historians who pick over every aspect of the war.

Lots of people harp about the need for the South to get over it. Newsflash: Southerners aren't the only people who need to get over it. It is pulled out on some thread every week and used to smack everybody in the region around.

There needs to be a separate forum where those who want to drag it out or drag out some fulmination about the South can go and blast away. There are many people on DU who are endlessly pounded with screeds about this area. We would like to spend the energy moving forward and beating back any serious efforts by the morons to roll back history.

I'm sure this OP and me will be smashed. Flame away.
