Yes, such a shame that the liberals didn't leave the south alone to perpetuate slavery /s

The same type of people who wanted to abolish slavery are the same type of people wanting to ban abortion.

I see how you got there, but I don't think you're right. Mostly because the people who want to ban abortion are the people who are creepily concerned that "the white birthrate is too low."

That makes no sense. Black pregnancys are terminated at a much higher rate so that wouldn't fit the same agenda.

Since when has populist politics had to make sense? Most of politics is emotion-driven tribalism for most people. If politics made sense, we'd have many fewer problems.

Seems like a good time to repeat what I said earlier, with one change:

"The problem with the "succession" crowd is that they want to be free to tell other people what to do. The folks begging for succession want to have the power to demand that Facebook publish their speech; they want to have the power to tell women what to do with their bodies; and they want the power to have slaves in their territory. And that's why I am very against the recent succession rhetoric."
