Where does MSNBC get ‘em all?

Joy Reid – described at the link as a “contributor” to MSNBC – thinks that there’s “this sort of neo-Confederate thread that runs through this pro-gun movement and NRA movement”.

Huh. I wonder where all those confederates in Northern Colorado came from.

And I have to say I am abashed to learn that all those Pacos who died fighting in the Civil War on the side that came in second were done in by a bunch of bluecoats carrying, apparently, nothing but barrel staves and pocket knives.

Update: Rinardman, in the comments - "I think there's this sort of neo-idiocy thread that runs through this MSNBC movement."

Your ancestors and my ancestors might have fought side by side against the Yankee agressors, Paco (although mine came from Tennessee and Texas (and most likely some distant ones from Alabama). My mother remembered her great-grandfather dressing up in his Confederate uniform (sans one eye and one leg) for Armistice Day and the Fourth of July parades.

American history. Embrace it all.

I had family on both sides of the War of Northern Aggression, or so it appears.

But if Joy wants to label me a neo-Confederate for supporting the Constitution, she can have at it.

Alas, my family missed out on all the American fun back then. They were in some other part of the world at the time fighting someone else's wars. I would imagine the majority of Americans have that history and not the Civil War one. MSNBC makes this stuff up as it goes along.
