Confederate Heritage & Nanny Boo Boo

A number of historians and bloggers have legitimately criticized some folks for the way they celebrate and interpret their Confederate/Southern heritage for being "unsophisticated." At the same time, these same critics have also illegitimately criticized others for honoring their ancestors and their Southern heritage.

But lets look at the "sophisticated" aspect of that criticism. One of the most vocal of these critics who occasionally gets it right (but more often does not), recently posted this rather juvenile display:

Lord, I often feel as though I'm back in high school when visiting some of these blogs. A "sophisticated" pissin' contest.

Dear Old Dom.,
Ungentlemanly? Yes. Juvenile? Yes. An example of why his writing cannot be taken seriously. You can take the boy out of high school but apparently you cannot take the high school out of the boy .

Must have been a sophisticated high school.

High school's too charitable a comparison. Middle school is more apt, particularly for the way leftist academics depend on similar tactics: bullying, gossip, and the assigning of scapegoats.
