This person works at a D.C. think tank where a dislike of people like us, and me in particular, is literally company policy: nobody is allowed to cite me, go on my cruise, or even retweet me.
That's an actual policy at an actual institution.
("Institution" being the key word.)
"Neo-Confederate" is a made-up word that doesn't mean anything. I assume it's supposed to insinuate support for federalism and secession and yes, as a non-comatose libertarian, I support both of those things.
