Southwest Virginia is for haters
Hypocrites. Plain and simple. That is exactly what you and your Canadian friends are. You attack people who honor their Confederate ancestors, have guns, and practice Christian values. You call these people "haters". All because you have different ideas on how things should be. Kind of funny, you state, "Hostility to others is crippling,…", yet you have no problem with hostility as long as it is directed toward those you disagree with. You people are amazing. Move here and then try and change things to suit you. And if the people don’t agree with you, then they are backwards and haters. Go back to where you came from and fix their problems. We will be fine without your hypocrisy.
