    we didn't deport the Tories at the end of the Revolutionary War
    Actually there was considerable 'ideological cleansing' after the revolutionary war. Canada was substantially populated by people not welcome in the USA.

    This had disastrous consequences in (for example) South Carolina as the Kings supporters in SC included some of the strongest opponents of the local pro-revolutionary power elite. Which was the rabidly pro-slavery Rice Barons.  

    The post-war emigration to Canada  robbed SC of some of its relatively progressive inhabitants to the benefit of Ontario. And given what the SC power elite did in 1860 possibly made the Civil war more likely.

    Violence is the last refuge of the incompetent.
