Yeah, Kalen Allen’s shtick includes more than a little racism – and cultural appropriation since he’s not Southern – but he’s still “on point” to many foodies and he’s funny while doing it. And, frankly, even though the Philadelphia-born-and-raised, Los Angeles-living food critic isn’t from The South, just about everything he’s saying could, would, and probably has come out of the mouths of Southerns – White, Black, and/or Whatever – when we’ve seen “gentrified” Southern food recipes.
At the end of the day, Republican Karen Handel beat Democrat Jon Ossoff in the GA-6 special election runoff to replace Republican Tom Price, who resigned from the seat due to his appointment and confirmation as the United States Secretary of Health and Human Services in the Trump Administration. This has caused much weeping, wailing, and gnashing of teeth by liberals and Progressives nationwide.
Simply put, this is because Liberals and Progressives, the Lamestream Enemedia, and the movers and shakers of the Democratic Party are delusion idiots deep in thrall of apocalyptic fantasies. Ossoff was nigh on if not exactly the absolutely wrong candidate to try to take any district in Georgia, much less the traditionally Republican 6th. He was fundamentally just a carpetbagger and carpetbaggers have never been very popular in the South.
- Ossoff doesn’t live in 6th District and hasn’t done so since he was a child and, even then he attended an elite, private school in Atlanta.
- Ossoff, at only 30 years old, is younger than most Southerners prefer their politicians to be.
- Ossoff is unmarried and has no children, which is seen as having no roots or ties to the community by many Southerners.
- Ossoff isn’t a church-going man or, in his case, a synagogue-going man, which further signals him out as having neither roots in- nor ties to the community.
So Mr. Ossoff was already facing an uphill battle from the very start. The approximately $20 million that Ossoff received as campaign contributions from outside of Georgia, mostly from California, New York, and Massachusetts, rather than helping him up that hill, hurt him by painting him as even more of a carpetbagger whose interests, ties, and loyalties weren’t to the 6th District. Then, when you add in all left-wing pundits and the media painting this election as a “referendum on Trump,” you’re actually crystallizing the thought that Ossoff isn’t for the people of 6th District even further.
Perhaps the biggest telling point is the fact that Ossoff got 48.1% of the vote, exactly the same as in April when he failed to reach the 50% threshold to avoid a runoff but did garner more votes than all the Republicans on the original ballot combined (40.2%). Yet, after the vast and ungainly goliath of liberalism got involved, Handel went from getting 19.8% of the vote in April to getting 51.9% and the victory.

The idea of securing America’s southern border by, among other means, building a proper, fortified wall along it to prevent illegal immigrants from crossing out of Mexico into the US is one of the memes intrinsic to the 2016 election. Americans are, by and large, at least somewhat in favor of it, whereas the Liberals and Progressives – and the Latinos of course – hate the idea and anyone and everyone that might entertain it.
This is an almost hilarious position for the ever-bigoted and oikophobic Leftists to hold since they too deeply desire to close the Southern border. They just want the wall in a different place.
Yes, given their hatred for The South and Southerners, especially rural and/or blue collar Southerners, nobody rightfully claiming sanity can say that the Liberals and Progressives don’t desire for some form of segregation, travel restrictions, and veritable apartheid to be enacted upon the South.
Of course, given the nature of reality, such a thing might harm the South far less than our domestic enemies wish and benefit them far, far less than they hope for. 😉

A proper Southerner will always stand up for- and protect our way of life. A Southern gentlemen will also always defend the rights and virtue of a Southern woman.
Dixie Defends Herself
In the latter circumstance, however, such protection is often appreciated but unneeded. The woman of Dixie are, by and large, well capable of defending themselves in any theater of conflict.
It’s no surprise. After Dylann Roof put down 9 Blacks inside Charleston, SC’s Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church Obama got up and attacked the Confederate Flag.
It’s true a flag did not cause these murders. But as people from all walks of life now acknowledge…the flag has always represented more than just ancestral pride. For many, black and white, that flag was a reminder of systemic oppression and racial subjugation. We see that now. Removing the flag from this state’s capitol would not be an act of political correctness. It would not be an insult to the valor of Confederate soldiers. It would simply be an acknowledgment that the cause for which they fought—the cause of slavery—was wrong.
Let us as a hand-out to Obama ignore the wrongness of Obama’s position upon the Confederacy’s banner. After all, at the beginning and the end of the day, and every misspent moment in between, Obama is a Black and only a Black. One must make allowances for the boy’s hatred of the flag of his ancestors’ masters.
But such charity or largess of tolerance should not be extended towards Obama’s rank hypocrisy. In this egregious yet typical case it is the boy’s insistence last month that the codicil in the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) that prevented nations that engage in in slavery from being part of major trade deals with America be modified so that any country that is declared to be taking “concrete” steps toward reducing human trafficking and forced labor can be part of a trade deal.
Ah well. This is Obama and such behaviors should and must be be expected from him.
