No point, just letting people know.  I have never had a chance to read him.  

I thought it was great when Trump had Peter Thiel, well known, gay, very well spoken, speak at the republican convention.  Others feel republicans are anit-gay.

Not sure how it's relevant to point it out.  But I do agree that liberals are mistaken when they think conservatives are anti-gay.  Nothing could be further from the truth.  We're just also protective of the 1st Amendment which liberals think is something to trample on for the sake of the gay population.

Guy Benson has taken untold crap from the alt-right crowd over the past year.  Ben Shapiro has as well.  One because he's gay, the other because he's Jewish. 

Of course, they both had a negative tweet about trump, which cause the alt-right crowd to flock to their twitters to harass them.

alt-rights, at one time, were marginalized in conservative world, if not outright purged.  Now they're back.  Wonder why....

I think it's very relevant to the thread. Shows societal norms evolutionary change. Gays were outcasts in the republican party 30 years ago. Tomi's views on abortion will also be the new normal in 20-30 years.

I think this is likely true.

However, it's not why I personally dislike her. 

It's a side show that some people that otherwise dislike her, who don't really want to admit it out loud, used to gig her a little.

the alt-right you are describing remains fringe.  

The lefts attempt to cast that as anyone who supports trump as somehow subscribe to your anti-jew anti-gay alt-right is laughable.  Same they have said done about republicans in general.  Labels don't mean much.

Already is the new normal, more or less.  You really have to live in pretty redstate type area nowadays.  Grew up in rural Il, lived in Chicago, St. Louis and Seattle.  Only in rural IL would her views be left of 'their' normal.  Everywhere else she is very 'right' for normal.

Hard to say that with Steve Bannon in a influential position in the west wing.

They aren't mainstream, but President Trump hasn't exactly made them feel unwelcome.

I think this just shows the difference between the big cities and the rest of us.

I have a friend from Boston, and we were talking about Obama's stimulus.  He's a pretty conservative Catholic guy.  I told him we couldn't afford a stimulus, we'd borrow the money for it, and leave more debt.

His response:  what is it with you Southerners?  I've heard that response a few times - not a question I'd ever hear in Boston.

Sort of like your abortion comment - the big cities vs the rest of us.

Perhaps.  trump may not have opened his arms to them, but they swore allegiance to him as they went on their twitter crusades during primaries and elections.

I had a few tell me they had my ip address, and would come for me.  I told them to bring it.

You must know they came out of the woodwork to mouth off.  They seem to have quieted down a bit for now.

Funny how I've experienced the same thing on twitter, only with me it was skirmishes with libtards. I guess it's who we CHOOSE to tangle with

It's about 50/50 for me, but the libtards don't scare me - I know they're not armed.

The fringe people have died down since the election, but the libtards are still there.  I've been blocked by mothers against guns, planned parenthood, pro-trump people, anti-trump people, Niki Haley, Andrea Tantarros, and a bunch of people that support those causes.

It's getting hard to find people to argue with, so now I just post pictures of puppies and bunnies to build followers.

You listen to the press too much.  Bannon is not out that far.  BrietBart is not all the sudden some out there alt-right site.  

They attempts to label them as such because Milo, a gay activist, say outrageous things about the overreach of gay accommodation/gay glorification in America.   In that regard you guys, at least I, think Milo is spot on.

In fact the stuff that mikec says here would be labeled way more alt-right than anything Bannon has said or done.  Love of the confederate flag is number 2 in the alt-right labeling handbook (only behind KKK membership).  From the south, #7.  Anti choice #10.

I hear a lot more conservative on the fiscal side around me.  They seem to be alarmed by Obama's $20T in debt, spending out of control and failing military strategy.  

Most here are fine with Marijuana legalization, it is largely a non-factor.  I would not recommend for everyone, but for this state, it did not matter much as they were not arresting anyone anyways.  Gay marriage, no one here cares, not a lick.  We (my conservative friends) found it funny that the gay wedding cake played out in rural Washington state.  We are way too busy fending off out right communist 5hitholedom to worry about gay wedding cakes.  Town I am in is trying to pass a law against using BBQ grills (charcoal and gas), cause they pollute.

Like guns, the reason libtards want to outlaw BBQ grills is because they don't know how to use them. They forget that there are instructions on YouTube.

Bannon's views are a little to the left in my neck of the prairie. Soldier on.

MikeC, here is some alternate study materials for you. Thought you might enjoy some downtime. I read some books, and websites, but have seen some excellent work done by the AHC channel on Civil War recreations. AHC has seen fit to do breakdowns of major engagements one by one. From what I have studied, Hoods Texas Brigades were considered to be Lee's shock troops. They were the brigades you threw in if things got iffy. Word is they got cut down to size in a small cornfield by grapeshot at close range.

Thanks Woody - I enjoy history, and am an amateur historian.  I try to collect some pre-Civil War stuff (mostly from Georgia), and have learned quite a bit about the wars (civil and revolution) in Georgia. 

As I've said before, I am from Savannah, back to original settlers here.  I have visite the graves of my forebearers, which were a little hard to track down, but I was able to find them, all the way back to the original ship from England.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ebenezer,_Georgia

In my part of the world, you can't go a mile w/o a historic marker.  I have a National Battlefield park about 10 miles away, and several state battlefield parks 1-2 miles.  One of these was the site of a brutal Union defeat, and they say if you wander into a certain ravine, where dying troops tried to escape fire, you can still hear the moans.  Troops from both sides marched all over my little slice of Georgia.

I worked on an office project here where skeletons were found on the project site.  The project was halted, and the coroner was called in.  Turned out they were soldiers from both sides, and the little ravine they were found in was actually Confederate defensive earthworks.  They were relocated, given proper military services and burials, the site plan adjusted, and the area preserved and made available to the public.

History lives on here, as I'm sure it does out there.

Mikec, what I fear, is that our time has passed. Our interest in the history of our nations formation and past battles that determined the destiny of our nation, will be buried in the past with us. Our nations children for the most part, are ignorant of how we got here. Hell, most of the walking dead are ignorant of anything other than very recent current events. I think we have allowed our educational system to dumb down educational standards to the point that most young people couldn't tell you what the branches of our government are. They can't tell you the name of a past President, much less a VP. They get their news from TMZ. We have allowed our nation to fail. No standards, no values, no God. Socialists Democrats depend on these masses for their base. Thank God there are some people that have passed on some semblance of intelligence to their children. Remember, we aren't in the 1700's or 1800's when education wasn't available. Now we have people that have the absolute opportunity to advance themselves through a free education, but instead, ignore that path, and take a lower road bound for failure, and self destruction for them and their future children. I just don't understand it. Why would anyone choose to be ignorant? They even embrace ignorance, and lash out at anyone that would dare point them to a path of stability and self worth. We are lost as a society. No boundaries, no laws that need be obeyed, no purpose in our being. We need to separate into two nations. One of ignorant people that follow in lock step to their masters whims, and refuse to better themselves, and another that have self respect, determination to succeed, and a desire to better themselves. I see no path to our societal evolution by continuing to participate with people that would let our society slide into the abyss. Take a side. I'm on the side of the smart people, who want a better nation, and refuse to associate with stupid people. I am not talking about ignorant people, that are striving to better themselves. I mean stupid people who are walking around unaware that they are part of the human race. They don't wont to better themselves, they raise their children in the same mold, and they are breeding while we are busy working and solving problems. Cut the cord, stop feeding and housing them. Let them get some real world education. No more handouts or crutches. A hand up to those that will crawl out of the hole. The rest are doomed along with their spawn in the fishbowl they inhabit.
