Some conservatives really, really, really, want to be inside Reagan — no, not in a “gay way,” but instead, in a mystical new land formed of Southern states called “Reagan.” In fact, one particular conservative — or most of them, rather — don’t want “the gays” anywhere near them.
According to former Reagan and George H.W. Bush aide and conservative columnist Douglas MacKinnon, the South needs to secede again — and get rid of all gays and Hispanics!
Appearing on Janet Mefford‘s radio show to talk about his new book, The Secessionist States of America: The Blueprint for Creating a Traditional Values Country . . . Now, MacKinnon called for South Carolina, Georgia, and Florida to establish a new ultra conservative country, but to leave Texas out of it because “there have been a number of incursions into Texas and other places from some of the folks in Mexico.”
He claimed that the South had “seceded legally” and “peacefully,” but those awful Northerns like President Lincoln “waged an illegal war that was in fact not declared against the South after the South basically did what we’re talking about in this book now in terms of peacefully, legally and constitutionally leaving the union.”
Whining that “for whatever reason the leaders that we’re picking are deciding not to stand firmly for traditional values,” MacKinnon said that this new, rainbow and Hispanic-free conservatopia should be given the “interim name” of “Reagan” after his former boss.
MacKinnon said that a primary reason to form this new wasteland, err…right-wing haven is the numerous advances in LGBT equality in the United States. According to the former Reagan speech writer, it’s a shame that those evil Lefties will lash back at you if you openly espouse bigotry.
He said that “there’s no reason” that conservatives can’t secede now, defending the South’s role in what he called “The War Between the States,” urging the hyper-religious people on the Right to stand behind the ridiculous idea of forming a new nation simply because a group of people is being (slowly) granted equal rights.
On a positive note, at least he didn’t call it the “War of Northern Aggression.”
We checked out reviews of MacKinnon’s book, and they are hilarious!
“As a frothing, desperate, impotent, fat, self-righteous 40-year-old infant with a world-view so simplistic it might as well have been drawn in crayon, I am constantly on the lookout for shrieking noise that confirms the divisive lunacy on which I base my sense of self,” writes one reviewer who calls the book “Better Than Jesus,” adding, “I felt the first stirrings of an ideological erection when I read about how climate change is a communist conspiracy, and even gained some small sense of priapic emotion from wallowing in contrived paranoid fantasies about black presidents and birth certificates, but have never been able to truly achieve the climax of faux-conservative gibbering that I, and my wife-sister craved.” The reviewer continues, “Never have I been so happy. I have ordered 100000 copies of this book, and will use them to construct a temple to Christ, Ayn Rand and a bunch of other people whose work I have never read and have no interest in. I will then sit inside it and daub the walls with Glenn-Beck-inspired slogans in my own faeces, which is the one thing those liberals will never see coming.”
“Great idea! Just do it already. The rest of us are tired of your whining,” writes another reviewer, with yet another calling MacKinnon “Another seditionist lunatic who thinks anyone other than delusional traitors to America will listen to his ranting tempter-tantrum over a black man being in ‘his’ White House.”
One person caught a gigantic “editing error” in the book. ” The word used to refer to the process of splitting up the country by having conservative states break away to form their own nation is consistently misspelled on the cover and throughout the book. The proper spelling is T-R-E-A-S-O-N. A better editor would have caught the error,” he wrote.
