|Brooks if you want your face removed just let me know. Connie...I don't care.|
The self proclaimed defender of Southern Heritage chimes in on Dr. Simpson's recent post with a flurry of her own defensive rhetoric, aka vomit. This post entitled, "Damnyankees Attack. Southerners Defend." is the latest of the spew. Historically this title is wrong; the South fired first, carried out some invasions of their own, and ultimately lost. Connie professed in the past that she cares not for history and instead values subjective heritage. Taking this into account, it becomes obvious that Connie's title is commentary of the strife between herself and Professor Simpson. I once thought Connie carried sentimental feelings for Kevin Levin. She used to go on and on about him reminding me of the flirtatious young students I have in class. It seems that Connie directs her attention towards Brooks Simpson now. She writes about him constantly (romance novel forthcoming) and reads his posts everyday with a scented candle and red wine.
With that aside I think it is interesting to read the two posts above. Connie refers to Dr. Simpson's work as merely a critique or rather unjustified snarky commentary (paraphrase) on "Southern Heritage," (in quotes due to irony). It is easily noticed by viewing the website cwcrossroards that Dr. Simpson writes about a multitude of things. It just happens that Southern Heritage is one of them. Connie seems to be flabbergasted as to why. Now I could cite Michel-Rolph Trouillot's book Silencing the Past: Power and the Production of History which calls for Historians to stand and meet the injustices of pseudo history to answer 'why,' but I do not think I will. Mainly because those that have not read it would not understand, and because certain groups would simply disregard it as revisionists history. Odd that it is usually those that have not read the article are usually the first to discredit it. In short I will simply say that maybe Dr. Simpson's approach to "Southern Heritage," parallels Richard Dawkins approach to ardent Creationists; he just cannot believe they are that dumb.

Of course this cannot go on anymore. Connie Chastain, the woman that defends Southern Heritage has gone underground. She deleted people from her group that posed a threat (disagreed) and blocked viewing permissions to her group. "Damnyankees Attack.....Southerners Flee".....makes sense given the large amounts of desertion in the Rebel Army during the Civil War.
