“I wish I was in Dixie…”
I actually knew a girl named Dixie…..and the answer is yes.
After the South surrendered at Appomattox in 1865, President Lincoln spoke to cheering crowds in Washington and asked that the band play Dixie:
“I have always thought ‘Dixie’ one of the best tunes I have ever heard. Our adversaries over the way attempted to appropriate it, but I insisted yesterday that we fairly captured it.” As the crowd laughed and cheered, Lincoln added, “It is good to show the rebels that with us they will be free to hear it again.”
Hopefully the alumni will give this outfit a good swift kick in the wallet and Dixie will be played once again.
I can’t imagine this edict will go down quietly. People take their football VERY seriously in the south.
More proof that “progressivism” is a mental disease.
I believe it was an historical song.
But, you know, history bad….
Both HISTORY and HERITAGE are under assault by millennials, who can barely spell either and no little to nothing about them. In any other time, we would call this what it is – savagery.
It’s the Cultural Revolution all over again.
The illiterate masses are good for little else other than rock throwing.
His name was spelled wrong, should be Ross Bjerk.
