Celebrate Lincoln's Assassination?

As is the case with President Obama, hatred of Abe Lincoln persist among the nation's more regressive, opportunist and intellectually deprived denizens.  

Believe it or not the nation has a group of Confederate revisionists who remind of groups endemic in the GOP. A group who will never find safe harbor in progressive and liberal America. Before reading about a group who espouses celebration of Lincoln's assassination, follow a quick set of reports on how such groups are feed by money grabbing demagogues.  

Former Rand Paul communications director: The Southern Avenger. 

The Charleston City Paper

While a member of the City Paper’s stable of freelancers, Jack wrote in support of racially profiling Hispanics, praised white supremacist Sam Francis, blasted the House of Representative’s apology for slavery, claimed that black people should apologize to white people for high crime rates, defended former Atlanta Braves pitcher and racist John Rockerand Charleston County School District board member Nancy Cook after she said some mothers should be sterilized, argued that Islam was aninnately dangerous threat to the U.S, professed that he would have voted for a member a British neo-Nazi political party if he could have, considered endorsing former Council of Conservative Citizens memberBuddy Witherspoon in his bid to unseat Sen. Lindsey Graham, compared Abraham Lincoln to Adolf Hitler and Ike Turner, and continued to profess the erroneous claim that the primary cause of the Civil War was not thefight over slavery, ignoring the decades of American history leading up to war and South Carolina’s very own Declaration of the Immediate Causes for Secession, which clearly note that protecting slavery was the preeminent motivation of state leaders.

As for that persona he created for his writing and radio personality, that’s a character called “the Southern Avenger.” And while the site for The Southern Avenger still exists, purportedly, as of last year, its star no longer dons Confederate flag masks to make his points. From The Washington Free Beacon:
From 1999 to 2012, Hunter was a South Carolina radio shock jock known as the “Southern Avenger.” He has weighed in on issues such as racial pride and Hispanic immigration, and stated his support for the assassination of President Abraham Lincoln. 
During public appearances, Hunter often wore a mask on which was printed a Confederate flag. 
Prior to his radio career, while in his 20s, Hunter was a chairman in the League of the South, which advocates the secession and subsequent independence of the Southern States from this forced union and the formation of a Southern republic.” 
“The League of the South is an implicitly racist group in that the idealized version of the South that they promote is one which, to use their ideology, is dominated by ‘Anglo-Celtic’ culture, which is their code word for ‘white’,” said Mark Pitcavage, the director of investigative research at the ADL. The ADL said it does not necessarily classify it as a hate group.
The Avenger has moved on post the Paul campaign, and today is on a reclamation project with reflection of contempt for his past antics. He is often quiate as stating: "I am not a racist, I just played on on the radio."

I am posit, he speaks as many Right-wing Demagogues live. They spew vile obscene messages to people who have psyches 'salted' with racial hatred from birth to full adulthood. If you need an example Crooks & Liars offers a look at the fields of racists and bigots who soak it all in and move their sycophancy to action.

Neo-Confederate Group Plans Celebration Of Lincoln Assassination

I'm really glad there's no more racism to worry about in the United States, aren't you? Because now we don't have to worry about people like this: Warren Throckmorton notes, just today announced that on April 14 it will host a celebration of the anniversary of the "execution of the tyrant Abraham Lincoln."League of the South…
