If the condescending attitudes displayed here towards states with a minority that want to secede is prevalent, no wonder there are people who want it. I wonder if anyone ever stopped to consider that for a moment.
But that's the common wisdom these days. Insult first, rationalize later, rarely justify.
Then again, sometimes the stupidity is so prevalent, and clearly on display, that it's difficult to pretend it is anything other than what it is. What fool demands to secede because they didn't get the politician they wanted in an election? An ignorant one, and a willful ignorance at that.
