They’re going to keep this up. They’ve kept up the fiction of the Lost Cause of the South’s defeat in the Civil War for more than 150 years, so why shouldn’t they keep pushing the Lost Cause of Donald Trump’s defeat in the election of 2020? The South has been enslaved by the lies they have told about the Civil War. Look at John Bell Hood! They even managed to get a United States Army base named after the man who lost more Confederate soldiers on a single day than anyone during the entire war! Why give up now? Next thing you know, they’ll be pushing to erect monuments to General Michael “Let’s have a coup!” Flynn! If they can celebrate the criminally incompetent Hood, why not the criminally pardoned Flynn? Why not rename the FBI building after Rudy “Hunter Biden! Burisma!” Giuliani? Or re-name the building housing the Department of Justice after William “What Mueller report?” Barr? Or erect a grand statue of Mitch “I forgot where I was on January 6” McConnell? Or name a federal courthouse after Sidney “I lost every election lawsuit I filed” Powell?
