Political Correctness' Attack on the South

Upcoming seminar the Abbeville Institute.

TOPIC: The politically correct assault on Confederate symbols now includes nearly all things Southern. The statue of John C. Calhoun in Charleston was vandalized. Southern founding fathers are rejected because they were slave holders. Universities are removing or renaming buildings, monuments and symbols with links to the pre‑1960s South.

Not understanding the world‑inverting character of ideological thinking, many well meaning people seek to appease these militant demands. But they do so at their peril.

The Southern vision of society was America until the War of 1861‑65. Even into the middle of the twentieth century most Americans viewed Confederate heroes as American heroes. Southern statesmen shaped the destiny of the Union and formed the bedrock of the rugged individualistic American society. The popular film “Dixie” (1942), starring Bing Crosby and Dorothy Lamour, described “Dixie” as a rousing song that “expresses the spirit of America.”

Join us for a discussion of what these politically correct attacks mean for the future of the South and America, and why we should continue not only to recognize but to honor the South’s role in shaping America.

Hopefully they will make some of the materials available after the seminar.
