Popular culture very hostile to the Confederacy, Gizmodo article mocks the Confederacy

It used to be some journalist would criticize the Confederacy or the Confederate flag and neo-Confederates would flood the journalist with emails that were really hostile and sometimes email boxes would over flow. (That is something that could happen in the past.)

Now journalists don't worry about some Confederate email brigade. There are probably too many journals to attack with email floods and the journalists would report on them.

However, this article really goes after the Confederacy.

The title is "Confederate Group Fights For Possession of Time Capsule Found in Monument to Losers."

In the article Robert E. Lee is called a traitor. A member of the United Daughters of the Confederacy (UDC) is called a "loser." The author refers to the UDC's "racist ancestors."

Gizmodo is an extremely popular website for those interested in science fiction (sifi), technology, and comic books and graphic novels.

Popular youth culture, sci fi culture, and technology enthusiasts are very much against the Confederacy.

Perhaps because the STEM world (ScienceTechnologyEngineeringMathematics) has always been multinational, muticultural and of deep antiquity.

The fact that the rejection of neo-Confederacy is so complete, and so emphatic means the Confederacy is being rejected by American culture.
