D’vorce D’spousa, documentarian fabulist, convicted election fraud felon, fired Y’all Qaeda business school dean, serial adulterer, and would-be bigamist and self-proclaimed political prisoner of the Kenyan Usurper is really on a tear promoting his latest doorstop, er, book. And besides trying to convince us that his books are flying off the shelf…
Isn’t that cute: D’Vorce D’Spousa put copies of his (remaindered?) book on top of other books on the featured table. https://t.co/oSjBKLHYD0

…he’s also writing up a storm on Fox News’ blog-like thingie. His piece is of course summarized as the left are the real white supremacists. Here’s some of the longer version:
The tragic events in Charlottesville seemed almost too good to be true from the point of view of the mainstream media and the political left. On the one side were the neo-Nazis and Ku Klux Klansmen who seemed to be for Trump; on the other were the valiant leftists fighting against racism, Nazism and white supremacy.
The KKK who seemed to be for Trump? What gave it away, the MAGA caps and signs?
Looking back at Charlottesville, I am struck by the anomaly that the whole controversy erupted over the campaign to take down a monument to Robert E. Lee.
Oh, here we go again: the GOP were anti-slavery in 1860 and the Dims were the slavers, right?
I realized that in heaping opprobrium on Lee, the left was advancing one of its big lies. This is the lie that the South is to blame for slavery. In this view the slavery debate was entirely a North-South debate. But in reality it was not so. Certainly the secession debate of 1860-61 was between the North and the South. The slavery debate, however, which lasted from the 1820s through 1860, was between the anti-slavery Republican Party and the pro-slavery Democratic Party.
As our good friend Yastreblyansky writes at the always-excellent Rectification of Names:
If it is all about label definitions, then we can change the label. D’Vorce D’Spousa wants to change the Civil War definition from North-South to Republican Party – Democratic Party, and therefore I should be able to change the definition to Liberal-Conservative.
The Civil War was between the anti-slavery Liberals and the pro-slavery Conservatives. And suddenly D’Vorce D’Spousa’s thesis that the Democrats are the true racists goes up in a puff of (white) smoke. The Conservatives definition stays the same over time, Jim Crow and Civil Rights Era, to the Nixon and Reagan Southern Strategy, up to the current moment with the Orange Menace giving full throated support to White Nationalists.
So, we return to Miss Janet Jackson, D’Spousa and the rest of your fellow Conservatives: What have you done for me lately?
