Should we celebrate secession, treason, and the defense of slavery?
This article violates Rule 4 for use of the service:
>It is defamatory. It characterizes the Confederate soldiers as traitors, when they were fighting to preserve government by consent of the governed — the very thing that the Declaration of Independence proclaimed and the Constitution established.
>It is false. The Confederate States did not secede to preserve slavery — they seceded to escape an overbearing, intrusive central government — the very reason that thirteen States seceded from Britain in 1776.
>It is abusive, harassing, and constitutes hate speech and a personal attack on the Confederate soldiers and their legal successors the Sons of Confederate Veterans.
