Original Rednecks resisted Fascism
19th century West Virgina saw conflict between coal Miners and Mine owners. Due to unjust conditions imposed by Mine owners, Miners formed a Mine Workers Union. Not all Mines were unionized and Southern West Virginian Mine owners worked diligently to prevent unionization.

10,000 thousand odd Northern Union Mine workers led a march to the southern non Union West Virgina where their brother miners were denied unionization . Southern West Virgina Mine owners employed law enforcement, politicians and 'private detectives' (nothing more than company employed thugs) to harass, intimidate , imprison and kill miners who tried to Unionize.

The marching Union Mine workers tied a red scarf/bandanna around their necks to identify themselves. A reporter who was covering this march coined the term 'Redneck'.

The rural gun owning manual laborers have always stood in the way of tyranny in this country.

That's why the liberal media tries to paint them all as backwoods rednecks and klansmen.

Re: Original Rednecks resisted Fascism
the terms Liberal and Conservative get really hazy in the sleuth of Redneck origins.

The Rednecks were Unionists and went into open conflict with the Mine owners and their hired cops and politicians.

Re: Original Rednecks resisted Fascism
Could it be that the Redneck model somehow got "managed" by wars and Drafts. "If these lads want to fight the mine owners send them to war where they can do some controlled fighting"

This recent event seems somewhat in the bizarre mix, the real Rednecks back in view again?

There is no "liberal media" you ASSHOLE!

If there were a liberal media, the conservatives are so oncredibly criminal on soooo many levels that the "liberal media" would have pushed for a real investigation into everything from the gay prostitution (Gannon) in the WH, all of the way to Foley imprisonment!

The truth is that republicans actually stood for the people at one time. Those days are loooooong gone. Now all they are is a bunch of corporate facsists that have been hood winked by fomenting agression towards every brown race in existence!
