Are Californians Extremist Neo-Confederates?

Y'all remember all of the hullabaloo over the discussion of secession by Texans a few years ago? Sure you do. The Fake Civil War Historians in the blogosphere got their panties all knotted up, calling the Texans "extremists, neo-Confederates", blah, blah, blah. It was the perfect opportunity for the Fake Historians to advance their preferred narrative about Southerners.

But you've not heard a peep out of them over what is apparently a much more serious threat of secession by the citizens of California. Gee, I wonder why? Could it be that it's because these Fake Historians share the same ideology as their soul-mates in California? Could it be because Californians aren't part of the South?

You betcha. "Birds of a feather" . . . LOL.
The proposed measure would strike language from the California Constitution defining the state as “an inseparable part of the United States of America, and the United States Constitution is the supreme law of the land.” 
Story here.
California Secretary of State Alex Padilla announced Thursday that a ballot initiative called “California Nation” has been approved by the state to begin collecting signatures to qualify for the 2018 ballot.

Personally, I have no objection. I think it would be a great experiment in liberty and self-determination. Go in peace my friends, go in peace.

Jeff Davis must be smiling.

Cue the crickets.

Outstanding! Will we need passports to visit? I can hardly wait to see the Feds reaction to this if it passes.

Passports? Don't be silly. Just make your way to the nearest sanctuary city.

Oh, I can't wait to hear what all the defenders of the idea that secession is legal and un- constitutional have to say about this. I wonder if they will start calling their left leaning friends traitors and put out a cal to send in federal troops to put down the rebellion?

Ernest D'Agrosa Jr. said...

The hypocrisy of the left since election day has been both amusing and sad at the same time.

Richard G. Williams, Jr. said...

Ernest - indeed. Also, you gotta love their incessant hand-wringing and finger pointing at the extreme elements of the Southern heritage folks and playing the "guilt by association" card while they, at the same time, embrace a march/movement being defined by Ashley Judd, Madonna and women who carry signs suggesting we'd be better off if Mary had aborted Jesus. A truly sick and twisted bunch.

I will be interested to see if Californians send a delegation to negotiate the terms of secession. Will they, for example, pay-off their share of the national debt and provide payment for the water they take from the Colorado River? The remaining USA is entitled to such compensation.

Richard G. Williams, Jr. said...

Phil - heck, let bygones be bygones. Just let them go for Heaven's sake. ;-)

Ron Walker said...

I can't think of one reason to keep them in the Union. As long as they pay their portion of the national debt and the debt they owe as a state, take care of the water rights issues, AND win the battle against their biggest opponent in leaving, the Democrat Party, they can go.

Would love for the Democrats to lose those 56 electoral votes.

Richard, and lest we forget this woman as well. http://dailycaller.com/2017/01/26/womens-march-featured-speaker-who-kidnapped-raped-and-tortured-a-man/

I feel as if they are the new "radical abolitionists" who are trying to incite another civil war in this country.

Ernest: The similarities and ironies we are currently witnessing are quite fascinating.
