Conservative Author Wants Southern States To Secede Over Gay Rights, And Name New Country ‘Reagan’
Conservative columnist and former Reagan administration aide Douglas MacKinnon is out with a new book calling for Southern states to secede again, and this time, he has a nifty new name for his vision of a Conservative utopia: “Reagan”.
[su_center_ad]On Janet Mefferd’s show, he spoke about his book, “The Secessionist States of America: The Blueprint for Creating a Traditional Values Country…Now,” and called for a movement of states, starting with South Carolina, Georgia and Florida, to establish a new country, Right Wing Watch reports.
Texas, MacKinnon explained, was not included in his secessionist blueprint because “there have been a number of incursions into Texas and other places from some of the folks in Mexico.”
He added that the South had “seceded legally” and “peacefully” during the Civil War, but greedy Northerners 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.”
MacKinnon thinks the South will rise again and he wants to name it “Reagan,” an idea which should go over as well as ReaganBook, the Conservative alternative to Facebook which didn’t even last 24 hours.
Gay rights was specifically pointed out as a reason MacKinnon wanted Southern states to create their new country, thus leaving America, like any good patriot would do.
MacKinnon called the Civil War,“The War Between The States,” and said that Religious Right activists should endorse the secessionist movement as a way to “protect our faith.”
In his column, he points to what he calls an “unhinged bias against the Christian faith.” The persecuted man does not mention what he’ll do with the gay community living in the South, or minorities, or all of those delicious federal dollars afforded to Southern States.

Reagan, it’s a whole ‘nother country:
If the South tries to rise again, we’ll just burn it to the ground again. [su_csky_ad]
