The New Yorker is right -- the south is completely out of touch with their far, far, far left, whacked out, socialistic utopian ideals.

They can keep their mentally diseased ideals of government up in the northeast and and the Left Coast.

Didn't take a liberal long to introduce race into the conversation. Conratulations on being on the Democrat talking points express train which they have ridden for the last three plus years.

Simple answer. Non conservatives move north. Lets try it for 5 years. Who do you think would be more successful. Yea we know it will never be done but no liberal would want it because they know.

I'd love to see them because frankly, it isn't that the statement is somewhat true it is that it pretends it is fricking unique to any particular region of the country.

Show me a state dominated by unions that isn't "resistant to the new idea of right to work".

No. I haven't read the article yet, but that quote definitely DID warrant a "good lord" because it's fricking stupid. This whole pretense tha the south is somehow unique in the area described in that quote is a testament to the writer being a fricking moron.

Honestly I was expecting worse. Its obvious that his political views are not the same as the majority of southerners but he at least attempts to understand us. Thats more than you can say for a majority of northern liberals/journalists. In the end its actually a well written article that will give some people up there some needed perspective.

The irony is that the only authority for every so-called civil right is moral authority. What justification do progressives rely on when they argue in favor of same sex marriage?

It's one man's opinion. I have a person opinion of the Northeast and of California that is definitely not what they would want to hear.

Let it roll off your back, keep living the life you believe in and keep the south southern. It's why we like it anyway, right?

What "perspective" are supposed to gain?

Are there idiots in here who actually think there's some remarkable difference between the number of idiotic voters in the south and anywhere else? Some remarkable difference between voters who vote entrenched interests in the south and anywhere else?

The entire concept is fricking ludicrous. It's a pompous batch of pretentiousness to act as if the north has some shortage of fricking morons.

Sure, the article makes some salient points but they are in and among cliche bull shite that represents more of the way hollywood and NY sees the south than reality. This line
quote:

The South’s vices—“violence, intolerance, aversion and suspicion toward new ideas
is easily the most retarded line in the column. The south has nothing even close to a corner on the market for ANY of those things. Moreover, what the left calls "new ideas" are more often than not, not new at fricking all.

Basically, what have you have here is a pretentious a-hole who is talking nice on occasion about the south but in the final analysis, is looking straight down his nose as he does it. He views his thinking as "new" and superior while the South is this petulant child that has a few noble tendencies he hopes the mature rest of the nation can harness.

frick that a-hole. His cities are going to shite. People are leaving his states in droves. And even if they weren't, frick him and his "poor little south" attitude.

As its political power declines, the South might occupy a place like Scotland’s in the United Kingdom, as a cultural draw for the rest of the country, with a hint of the theme park.
What a dick.

It occurs to me that a review of the various secession threads and some of the bat shite crazy talk in them might be in order.

I was thinking he had really trashed the south until I read the article. But he just doesn't do this. its clear he admires things about the south, but disagrees politically.

I don't get why people are upset. Personally I agree with his assertion that it would be great if the southerners in congress would try to play ball and make some of the legislation more well rounded and fair, instead of throwing a hissy fit over everything obama does. We get it guys, you hate obama. Understood, I am not in the fan club. But if you work towards a mutually beneficial solution we will all be better off, as opposed to just screaming no and frick you. Of course, they need to come with to grips, they wont' get everything they want. But better to play ball and get something, as opposed to nothing.

At the same time, the Southern way of life began to be embraced around the country until, in a sense, it came to stand for the “real America”: country music and Lynyrd Skynyrd, barbecue and nascar, political conservatism, God and guns, the code of masculinity, militarization, hostility to unions, and suspicion of government authority, especially in Washington, D.C. (despite its largesse). In 1978, the Dallas Cowboys laid claim to the title of “America’s team”—something the San Francisco 49ers never would have attempted.


Seems like a jealous little prick to me. But, seeing as how liberals are the party of, "I want what he has", i'm not surprised.

Do you ever ask this of the Democrats in the Senate? Does any liberal? Every liberal loves to say, they wish that Congress would do something, yet when faced with the fact of Harry Reid's complete impotency in the Senate, they just shrug, and blame R's.

And you know, i would blame the R's if Obama wouldn't throw an executive order on anything congress wouldn't pass. Also, if our economy was actually fricking working, instead of the abysmal failure that his entire presidency is, then maybe, i'd agree with you. But Marxism IS NOT the American way of Life.

I don't see that as jealous, I see that as a statement of fact.

It was a ballsy move, I see admiration in his tone.

But you know white male southerners are the new blax in america. everything offends them.

re: Talk about your condescending A-holes at The New Yorker


I'm a native New Yorker.
I love New York.
But The future belongs to the South and The Mountain States.
There is no need to be insecure.
My standard of living here, and the quality of life here FAR exceeds the northeast.
And the quality of people here is head and shoulders better (apologies to my NE peeps).
Leave em in the rearview mirror and enjoy this 70 degree day .
