A clueless ABC News talking head
thinks red states are just itching
to bring back slavery:
Secondly, when you tell me "Let the states decide," that scares me, okay? I've got a little map here of pre-Civil War free versus slave states [...] It looks like the map of 2004. And when you say "Let the states decide," I remember what the
states decided when they had slavery.
And the kinds of things that concern me is [sic] despite what the president said about going after tax reform and entitlement programs...I think he's going to go after social programs, despite what he said. I think we're going to get a rollback on all kinds of things.
Oh, I see! It's a metaphor!
Disliking and attempting to partially dismantle the modern welfare state makes you the political heir of slaveholders! Espousing a creed of self-reliance is akin to considering other human beings as racially inferior non-persons and legal property! It's all so obvious now...
On a side note, isn't it amusing that the Democrats never seemed to have a problem with the supposed benighted ignorance of the South when it was voting as a solid bloc for them? In the same way that there only ever seems to be a national homeless problem when Republicans are in the White House
, the media only discovers the (remarkably condescending) notion that Southerners are really, really stupid
in years when they don't vote for Democrats. Funny, huh?
