Rob baker is on the attack again wielding his sword of ignorance at Southern heritage groups, the Tea party and history of the War for Southern Independence. http://historicstruggle.wordpress.com/2014/06/28/confederate-tea-party/
Here Baker claims the Southern Soldier was fighting to preserve the institution of slavery. Baker offers no proof of his OPINION. However in other discussions with Baker I know he brings as his proof positive for this statement the Declarations of immediate Causes for secession and Stephen’s Cornerstone speech. Of course neither of these documents mentions going to war. On the other hand Baker completely ignores the Crittenden resolution. Corwin Amendment, and Lincoln’s letter to Horace Greely, and the Lincoln quote “what about my tariff.” Each one of these documents will stand on their own and prove the war was not about slavery.
It is easy to expose his ignorance of history here just by referencing the Cold Southern Steel post at https://coldsouthernsteel.wordpress.com/2014/06/14/279/
All one has to do is read baker’s comments to see his lack of knowledge of the war.
Baker goes on trying to draw comparisons between the Tea Party and Southern Heritage groups and the use of insults. I cannot see any comparison between the Tea Party and the Confederacy except both are against high taxes. I am sure there are some Northern Tea parties with people in them that have no connection to the South. So Baker what is your point??? I am guilty of insults so is Baker. But there is a difference between the two of us. I never said I wouldn’t insult Baker, Mackey, Dick, Simpson, Levin or Hall. I have no policy on insults. My NEW policy for comments is posted below the articles however at the Cold Southern Steel link posted above Baker claims to have changed his policy regarding insults on his blog. In the comment section we see this comment

Nice to see Dunford doing the usual running of the mouth while doing no historical work whatsoever. My students are amazed that people like him exist in the world, but then they realize the KKK exists and are supported by Jerry’s kind.
Yes Baker your are correct as you said on your post “but like-minded individuals rarely disagree with one another.”
