A Southern Sulk for Sunday
If it’s a day that ends in Y, the True Southrons™ are feeling oppressed:
So the complaints are:
Boston gets to do this. We don’t.
They have a mural still in their State House. We don’t (here in SC).
The mural in Boston dates back more than a century. If there’s nothing comparable in the South Carolina State House after all these years, whose fault is that, exactly? It’s not like y’all haven’t had time to get it done.
Can’t even have one Flag at the Soldiers’ Monument.
The flag was taken down by the elected representatives of the citizens of South Carolina, the same body that put it there in the first place. It was not imposed on y’all by anyone; it’s a testament to South Carolinians’ revanchist temperament (“too small for a republic. . . .”) that it lasted as long as it did.
For the love of God, stop whining.
