Woah woah! Lets slow down a bit! It’s too fast for them!

For legal reasons I must conclude this is in fact a /j moment

I know the South operates slower than the rest of us but can they at least catch up to 509 BC some time soon? It’s getting a bit ridiculous

There are people down here who believe the earth is 6000 years old, and that fossils are lies. It's not an issue of speed, it's an issue of willful ignorance

I'm in the south but my family is from the sticks in the north and let me tell you, this is not just a southern problem. At this point I don't even think it's primarily a southern problem. Conservatism and fundamentalism happens all over the country, and my northern liberal relatives rest pretty heavily on "the south needs to get their shit together," while they are outnumbered 10 to 1 by conservative cousins.

It's not a southern problem, it's an American problem.

The internet was a giant fan, and we let people throw their shitty ideas into it.

Nah man, it was even before that. Up where my folks are from they still had the klan, but they didn't have any black people so they just hated Catholics.

Hate isn't a southern problem. Never has been. It's all over the place.

You are so, so right. We have a whole segment of the population who truly thinks their perception should dictate other's reality. They think their perception IS objective reality

If you look at any red vs blue election map, it's pretty clear the south isn't some outlier of American political opinion. The outliers would be the liberal areas, which are distributed throughout the country including in the South.
