Wise people have stated, “That if you live long enough you get to see everything twice.” Another way of saying the same thing is, “All things come back around in due time.”
Today I heard a term that I had not heard since I was a young man. The term was “Southern Traditionalist.” Back in the 1960’s when the Civil Rights Movement was in full swing, those who opposed “Equal Rights” being applied to all citizens in the United States, referred to themselves as “Southern Traditionalist.”
That was the buzz word or palatable name for those who were sympathetic to those common viewpoints of the Ku Klux Klan.
Today the current buzz word or palatable name for those who once again are sympathetic to the same Ultra Right Wing Conservatism are calling themselves “Tea Party” members or simply the shorter, “Patriot.”
Whether one uses the old 1960’s Southern Traditionalist or today’s current “Patriot,” these people are all one in the same.
