The political structure in the United States is often portrayed by the media and its guests via a histrionic history of federalism. However, it seems, no historian or commentator can speak without referencing Southern (and only Southern) racism. And history is always linked, era to era, as Conservative vs Liberal vs Southern. It is often linked as Republican versus Democrats vs Southern Democrat and/or Southern Republicans. This is a philosophical catch-all. This “catch-all” wants Southern votes but not conservative philosophy. No Neo-Confederates allowed–whatever that is–according to Victor Davis Hanson.
Hanson’s is possibly the most vocal voice of histrionics hidden behind history in his affected ivory tower of Stanford lore.
