Jody Bottum says the problem with localists is that they’re all raving racists. O goody, let’s get down to brass tacks.
It’s bizzare how Bottom’s problem with localism is traceable once again to his cultural snobbery towards folk music. First it was the ukelele, and now the Old Britannia folk rockers Show of Hands. There really is something pathalogical going on here, and I frankly find that pathology far more fascinating that the old wicked slander of anti-semitism.
