Review by anonymous (posted on 26-May-2006)

Excellent movie! Does not toe the "diversity line". Probably could not be made now because of the liberal choke-hold on the press. Truthfully depicts the criminality and the viciousness of the Northern states, and their complicity to denigrate the South and its people. A "must see" for those whose patriotic vison has not been blinded or blurred by the vitrolic hate speech of the Carpet bagger press.
