Yes....and I would hold out hope for the south to rise again.... :roll:
Bjorn your statement here unless Im mistaking was in reference to The War Between the States.
If it was not then I humble ask you to explain your statement so as I may have a better
understanding of "the south to rise again".
I was not trying to define mine, your, or anyone Else's definition of what they may, or may not, feel is the meaning to everyone's definition in regards to "the south will rise again".
I once lived in the south. Some things went hand in hand, regardless of the nitpicking and baiting me into some narrow definition of only I'm sure will be your kneejerk reaction of what some often repeated slogan actually could mean in your mind.
I know this statement used just yesterday on another thread..."against diversity, for ethical separation, and the right to tell off colored jokes" is something I encountered by certain groups while living in the south. It usually was from those I would call racist, bigoted, and ignorant. Calls for the south to rise again (usually at certain concerts while consuming large amounts of beer), flying the rebel flag, and language such as bleep, gook, and faggot were common, are among the other things.
I half jokingly made the "south will rise again" to take a jab. As for what your definition is, I could care less. Just as I could less about worrying what goes on in other people's bedrooms, or the desire to run around calling people "evil" based on their preferences (or my religion), or anything else. But I do take offense when people need to step off their own property, and feel the need to shout these accusations, claims, positions, and viewpoints.
I think anyone calling people queers on a website forum, is crossing the line. It is not my site. But I hope nobody would be offended by my commenting on such statements. I'm certainly not doing anything more offensive than what I am countering with my own comments.
Of course I would find it quite normal for you to see things different in your world, through your eyes, as compared to mine. The fact that one person has no problem using the term "queer" on a forum, only proves this as a reality in everyday life. Of course, my position is just a tad less inflammatory as the other side.
Now go ahead...and do what you really want to do. Teach my what your definition of "the south will rise again" means to you. Like that little detail really matters. :roll:
Could it be.....a rallying cry for Confederate enthusiasts. a slogan claiming "southern pride". a call to distinguish the difference between states rights as opposed to slave rights. Or is it a redneck saying that is simply used to denigrate others. I've listed four for you. Will you go with one of these, or another just as correct definition. :roll:
