Not everything just Yankees.

But seriously the democrat party makes it perfectly clear if you're a white southern heterosexual christian born male they don't like you.

They shouldn't be surprised that in turn we dislike the democrat party.

The tone was pretty condescending


This!

If you ever been to NY you see it and feel it. The other thing that has stuck in my craw is that I have lived all my life in the South and was brought up in an integrated society. My travels up to the major northern cities showed me that they were way more segregated than the South is today or the last 20yrs.

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.


My guess is that you are under the age of 30 and do not see the politcal history here. Southerners do not like Obama for what he supports and the way he underhandedly conducts political affairs. The under thirty crowd thinks this is all about race - my daughter being one of the brainwashed ones... The Democrats are running this country into a social dependency state in an effort to perserve their own power. They are destroying our manufacturing jobs and taking our meager personal wealth and redistributing it to those who do not choose to compete in society.

Ask an urban liberal and ask them how they plan to fiscally perserve the nation, our standard of living, and our values. They have no answer because it is all about race when you talk about Obama and the Democrats.

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


I know the stigma that the Southern male faces just in terms of perception. We are assumed to be less educated and idiotic. I can recount a story from when I was 13. I was a Boy Scout at the National Jamboree in Fort A.P. Hill, VA around scouts from all over the country and the world. I liked to trade patches and other memorabilia with other scouts. One day, I traded some patches for a hat from a troop from Connecticut.

I never realized how much I was being s&%t on constantly by my Northern and Western contemporaries until I took off my hat that said "Istrouma Area Council, Baton Rouge, LA" and put on the hat that said "Connecticut Rivers Council" and it was like night and day.

People who before just ignored or treated me with disdain and disgust were suddenly friendly and inviting. I thought it must have been a coincidence until I put my Louisiana hat back on for a day. Then, everyone went back to treating me like dirt. That was how I learned, for the first time, how truly hated we are. Now, when I head north, I have to hide my accent to avoid getting treated like a social pariah. If I mention that I'm really from South Louisiana, they suddenly start treating me like I'm the kid off of "Mean Girls" that says "God gave us guns to fight the dinosaurs...AND the homosexuals!" They ACTUALLY BELIEVE "THE WATERBOY" IS AN ACCURATE DEPICTION OF LIFE IN LOUISIANA!!!

I'm not disputing anything you posted. But it has precious little to do with what the article was about.

The article was painting Southern conservatives as the source of all of our country's ills. It even ridicules their ideas of personal freedom and patriotism. Instead of trying to understand the conservative outlook, like so many liberal authors, writers, pundits, and politicians, he simply decides to ridicule them. If liberals would reach out and speak to southern conservatives and more importantly, listen to southern conservatives, they would realize that we are not that different after all. In many ways, northerners and southerners, republicans and democrats, midwesterners and Texans, West coast and third coasters are really for the same things. They want a strong economy, good jobs, individual freedom, freedom of speech, a balanced budget, and a civilized society.

Someday, liberals may come to realize that the only thing that really divides the vast majority of the country is divisive "dog whistle" politics, and hateful rhetoric. We are really not so different, but the establishment needs to stoke this false dichotomy and artificial hatred to stay in power.

No. It did not.

I could say the exact same thing about conservatives.

The article is not about trashing southerners. It makes interesting points about political sociology.

This post is semi-serious, so take it with a grain of salt.

*Cracks knuckles*

As a Texan, I kind of bristle when the writer tries to include Texas as part of the south (the reference to Tyler, Texas), but no problem, really, that's minor.

But this?

quote:

In 1978, the Dallas Cowboys laid claim to the title of “America’s team”—something the San Francisco 49ers never would have attempted.


Actually, NFL Films' Bob Ryan (who was born in Pennsylvania and worked in New Jersey) coined the term "America's Team" for the 1978 Dallas Cowboys highlight video.

NFL.com

upenn.com - Bob Ryan alumni feature

I understand that the Cowboys ended up embracing the moniker, but Tom Landry hated it at first because it put a big target on their back.

George Packer.

Get your shite straight, Yankee.

seriously? I think you may be embellishing a little. I was born and raised in Louisiana and I have lived up here for 13 years now, and I have never experienced this. Do you run into a few a-holes every now and then? Sure, but your experiences sound ridiculous.

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 .
Best thing I've read all day!
