Neo-Confederacy of a potential candidate for U.S. Senator from Georgia

Evidently U.S. House Representative Paul Broun referred to the Civil War as the "War of Yankee Aggression," in the U.S. House and now it is likely he will soon be a candidate for U.S. Senator from Georgia.

This is just one item of neo-Confederacy in the Republican party in the South. It isn't a trend yet. If he is successful I think other Republican candidates for federal elected office will seek to emulate him.

The link to the article is:

I am reminded of a T-shirt sold by Southern Partisan magazine. This was on the front of the T-shirt.

And surely this would be one of Lincoln's nightmares. And the following graphic was the back side. The prediction or claim made by the graphic is only half true. The Republican party has become a party centered in the former Confederate states, but it it isn't a majority party and increasingly becoming a minor party.
