Meanwhile, In Possum Hollar

Greetings from Possum Hollar!

Well this was predictable:

The leader of a private paramilitary group that provided security for Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene said he has formed alliances with other far-right groups to advocate for Georgia’s secession from the union, following the arrests of participants in the Jan. 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol.

“The way patriots are now being hunted down and arrested by fellow men and women who have taken the same oath has disheartened any faith I had in the redemption or reformation of the USA as one entity,” Justin Thayer, head of the Georgia III% Martyrs, said in a text exchange with The Atlanta Journal-Constitution this week.

Fiddle-dee-dee! The very idea that people who violently attacked the capitol with the plan to overthrow the elected government should be arrested…

History repeats itself.

  1. The problem stemmed from post-Civil War history. Instead of hanging EVERY rebel above company grade, and confiscating and re-distributing their land and property, Lincoln forgave everybody. And here we are today.

      Things may of course have been a little different if a Confederate hadn’t killed him and a Southern racist hadn’t taken over.

      Gordon-Reed on Johnson:

      “We know the results of Johnson’s failures—that his preternatural stubbornness, his mean and crude racism, his primitive and instrumental understanding of the Constitution stunted his capacity for enlightened and forward-thinking leadership when those qualities were so desperately needed.”

      But the ignorant racist culture persists today, a century and a half later. This stuff is persistent, and we have a lot of stupid people living here.

      I think two historical grease stains had more to do with that: John Wilkes Booth and Lincoln’s successor Andrew Johnson.

    They were martyred by the mighty Stacey Abrams. Two Democratic senators and fourteen electoral votes for Joe Biden. Secede from that, III Percent Milk.

    They have Martyr RIGHT IN THE NAME and he’s complaining about people being hunted down for violent illegal and seditions acts and arrested?
    Emmet Till might have something to say about that.
