Galley Friend J.E. writes in about Matt Continetti's civil war post:
"[Smiley] points to Quantrill's raid as an example to bolster her argument that the red states are evil and ignorant. Yet her assignation of "red" to the Confederacy is completely invented. One could much more easily conclude that the South was comprised of blue states; after all, abolitionists were likely to be Republican and religious. And abolition was a religious concept."
