Never the North, Always the South

“I think every heritage has things that are good about it, every heritage has things that are harmful about it,” replied Representative Tom Price recently to a question from Senator Tim Kaine. “And I’m happy to answer the specific question. I think slavery was an abomination.” Price was being interviewed for Donald Trump’s choice for Secretary of Health and Human Services, nothing but a political junkpile cabinet office.

Price, from Georgia, was interrogated by modern “Senators” who of course treat the South and its Confederate flag and history with disdain. Most of the politicians from the South who are hit by such questions from the interrogators always recoil like Price did. And not infrequently it is some smug carpetbagger like (Minnesota to Kansas to Virginia) Senator Tim Kaine who condescendingly smiles while posing his irrelevant question.

This, as if the South had introduced this evil in the 18th and 19th century or that great Moses from Illinois—replicated by a multi-million dollar carved stone monument—had freed any slaves. He didn’t.
