You Lost. Get Over It. Lee Surrendered to Grant.

July 29, 2014 By: Juanita Jean Category: Uncategorized

Look, just because Grant gave Lee his sword back should not encourage you to start fighting again.

Michael Peroutka, a Republican nominee for city council in Maryland attended a League of the South convention in Alabama and was one of the key speakers.  The League of the South is a secessionist group.  Peroutka also serves on the Maryland Republican Central Committee.

Screen Shot 2014-07-29 at 10.44.09 AMPeroutka generated controversy after winning the GOP nomination because he believes that the current U.S. and state governments are no longer valid, and should be destroyed by secession or other means.

“You need to secede and then you need to have the biblical understanding of law and government, and make the applications,” Peroutka told the League of the South in 2012. “So we need to take the biblical understand of law and government into account no matter what the outcome is with respect to the crumbling of the current regime.”

Translation:  There is a black man in the White House, dammit.

And then, to make his loyalties perfectly clear…

At the conclusion of his nearly hour-long talk, Peroutka asked the audience to rise and sing the “national anthem.”

But instead of “The Star-Spangled Banner,” Peroutka led them to sing “Dixie,” the de facto anthem of the Confederacy during the Civil War.

Look away Dixieland, my big blue butt.  I know treason when I see it.

There’s a phrase among real Americans in the South that means somebody is just goofing off, being lazy, and not accomplishing anything:  They are “whistling Dixie.”  If someone says, “You ain’t just whistling Dixie,” that means they are getting important work done or that they have spoken the truth.

Take heed, League of the South.  You’re whistling Dixie.

  1. How can he possibly swear an oath to uphold a government that he doesn’t believe is legitimate and that should be destroyed? Sure, it is just a city council position he is running for, but cities and their laws must abide by the US constitution.

    Really, it should be possible to simply strip him from the ballot, since he will not be able to take the oath of office.

  2. At least this one seems to understand that if you secede, you don’t get to call yourself “American” anymore, although I’m not sure what they *will* call themselves.

    Doesn’t, however, seem to understand what “sharia law” means.

    Too bad this fool lives in Maryland. Not exactly a hot-bed of secessionist activity.

  4. Holly Cahill says:

    Ye gods. Keep this fool out of Alabama. We have plenty of our own idiots who think like this and don’t need anyone from outside the state lines stirring them up.

  5. SteveTheReturned says:

    The question I always want to ask these secessionists is: If and when you re-establish the Confederacy, when and how do you intend to re-establish slavery? Extra credit for honest answers.

  6. Could he pass a breatholyzer test at any time? Just askin’. I’ve always been of the humble opinion that anyone with such thought processing has to be pickled 99% of the time.

  7. I took a moment to Google the Oath of Office he’ll take if elected:

    “I, _____________, do swear (or affirm) that I will support the Constitution of the United States, and that I will be faithful and bear true allegiance to the State of Maryland, and support the Constitution and laws thereof; and that I will, to the best of my skill and judgment, diligently and faithfully, without partiality or prejudice, execute the Office of Councilmember of Anne Arundel County according to the Constitution and laws of this State.”

    Perhaps an attorney can tell us if Peroutka’s comments about secession means he’ll commit perjury if elected?

  8. Marge Wood says:

    I can’t wait to hear the answer from Peroutka.

    This bozo is running for County Council from MY local area. He’s got lots of money to self-finance his candidacy, mainly because he’s so nutty most folks won’t donate to his campaign. He makes Louis Gohment and the Gohment wannabe Andy Harris appear moderate. This is the same guy who gave the Creationist Museum a dinosaur skeleton.
    I’d apologize for his behavior, but there’s nothing I can do about him.

  10. Polite Kool Marxist says:

    These historically ignorant goobers “whistling Dixie” are so beyond st00pid, that words fail to capture their st00pid.

    Peroutka, so not identifies with freed slaves of the “Dixie” song meaning and era, as to be convulsively funny, if not so st00pid. For real, have any of those goobers actually read the lyrics or any of the history of the song?

  11. Polite Kool Marxist says:

    W. C. Peterson, new bumper sticker: Peroutka for higher taxes, so st00pid can’t self finance a campaign.

  12. I’m astounded over and over by people who are in office, or running for office, who have (or will) swear an oath to uphold the Constitution of the United States…and who basically spit on it and want to get rid of it. WHY aren’t they the ones being impeached?

  13. This guy should be careful what he wishes for unless he wants to live in a poverty-stricken, religiously fanatical, third-world county south of the United States.

  14. Paco Fuerte says:

    As a U.S. American who loves my country, I really fail to see how singing Dixie in this way is any different that launching into Deutchland Uber Alles. Racsist countries that made war on American and that had to be smacked down. Screw the CSA. Screw Nazis foreign and domestic.

    Biblical government is just a socially acceptable name for discrimination of every kind: religious, racial, sexual and financial.
    We don’t need not steenkeen biblical government.
