Serbs and Croats

Hard as it may be to believe, the South still harbors people who believe the Civil War ended with the wrong victor. These pro-treason neo-Confederates blame the Union for its unprovoked attack on their peaceful secession (cough, Ft. Sumter, cough). They blame a tariff that didn't pass until after they seceded.

The Sons of Confederate Veterans don't blame their forefathers for holding other humans in brutal bondage. Their ancestors were fighting for liberty! Well, liberty for the landed white male gentry, anyhow...

Defense of slavery is still - publicly - a bridge too far even for these historical revisionists. So they deny that it was an important cause of the war. The overwhelming historical record that proves otherwise? Their heads are too far up their asses to see that.

The Civil War was more about a clash of culture than slavery. The south being a very Conservative lifestyle and the north being a liberal cesspool that many from the south wanted nothing to do with. The southerners held future democrat voters in bondage; not humans.

That's an amazingly stupid comment. If it were better written, it would appear to be satire. As it is, it doesn't even make sense.
