U.S. Senator Rand Paul on Lincoln , is the GOP the party of Lincoln or Jefferson Davis?

U.S. Senator Rand Paul has shared his thoughts on Lincoln in response to the Jack Hunter controversy.

It is reported in this article online:

Trent Lott explained to an interviewer for the Southern Partisan how the Republican Party was now the party of Jefferson Davis.

Is neo-Confederacy like a rising dampness, penetrating the conservative movement? Or is it an ideology that occasionally shows up in the conservative movement, but for which there is no general trend of neo-Confederacy being adopted by the conservative movement.

It might be that either scenario is a  current possibility and the conservative movement, if it wishes not to be neo-Confederate needs to take strong measures to prevent that from happening.
