Floggers love to rip into Southern heritage folks who get history "wrong." But do you ever see them correct folks who take the other side? For example, those who pass off the north as righteously indignant about slavery and uniformly eager to make war in order to march across the South freeing slaves?
You find such sentiments frequently in comment threads following news stories, editorials, or blog posts about the Confederacy, and especially about contemporary Southern heritage issues. But I don't recall ever seeing a flogger or their followers or commenters correct the folks who make these errors -- not even with gentle language, let alone with the animosity and disparagement they flog Southern heritage folks with.
They say that for Southern heritage advocates, "It's not about history, it's about heritage."
Floggers constantly demonstrate that, for them, it's not about history, it's about derision.
