NPR has a fascinating definition of ‘Southern,’ apparently.

It includes states like Indiana, Montana, North Dakota, and Pennsylvania: “a handful of southern Democrats joined Republicans yesterday to defeat president Obama’s choice to head the Justice Department’s civil rights division.”

Via Jonah Goldberg, who probably also knows that ‘Southern’ is NPR’s way of saying ‘damned crackers with their guns and religion and they’re probably all racists anyway.’  No, seriously.  You should hear how NPR pronounces the phrase ‘conservative white,’ for example: it’s darkly fascinating.

    NPR is promoting the geography lessons of Common Core.

    I wonder how they would pronouns the phrase ‘conservative black’? I’m pretty sure they couldn’t . The fact that they used ‘conservative’ as the adjective to modify ‘white’ instead of vice versa tells me they don’t believe in black conservatives, and must deny their existence.

    • Patrick Thomas says:

      I think it’s inconceivable for them to put their muscles into the sequence to say it. Kind of like Fonzi saying he’s wrong. 🙂

  • UtahMan says:

    In NPR/Californian/New York usage, “Southern” is “anything/anybody we don’t like. For whatever reason.”

  • Herp McDerp says:

    Ah … NPR and their fancy college ejumacations!
    “Was it ‘over’ when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor?!”
    “Forget it — he’s rolling.”
