Revealed: George W. Bush’s great-great-great-great-grandfather was a slave trader
The Daily Mail ^ | 20 June 2013

Posted on 06/20/2013 9:47:28 PM PDT by MinorityRepublican

Researchers claim that a brutal slave-trader who brought captive slaves from West Africa to Colonial America is the same man whose descendants produced two U.S. presidents. George W. Bush and his father, George H.W. Bush.

Historians already knew that the Bush family was directly connected to Thomas Walker, yet they were unable to figure out which was the ancestor of the Bush's.

Records show there was a Thomas Walker who was a merchant from Baltimore who was in Great Britain in 1758.

Archives also show Thomas Walker was a slave merchant and captain who bought and sold West African slaves in the late 1700s.

However, it was only recently that a retired genealogist and a historian in Sierra Leone finally figured out the two Thomas Walkers are actually the same person.

There’s no documentation, but the story is accurate...

Sound familiar? LOL

Maybe there is here, I just couldn’t resist.

Isn't Mr. Obama descended from slave-traders and slave-owners on both sides back into antiquity?

It doesn’t matter if Obama has slave traders or others in the family tree who did dastardly things in their day. This only matters if an evil Republican has such things in the family tree. Since Obama is a good Democrat, researchers would not dig into the family tree to search for things of this nature in the first place.

obama’s heritage could show the obama line being involved in the slave trade in africa, too. muslims sold slaves, as well as black tribes that defeated other tribes.

What’s the matter with George anyway? He can’t seem to keep his dead ancestors in line.

I mean you try to bring them up right. You know discipline them and taking them to church and Sunday school and all. But then they go off on their own and do something crazy like getting in to the slave trade!

Well what are you going to do? They’re your ancestors. You got to love them and let them be dead.

Headline: “Bush’s Fault That We Didn’t Pick Our Own Cotton!”

I assume that’s the point of this piece. It’s at least a fair inference.

I knew it all along, GWB hates blacks, caused cancer, was the father of all slave trading, hates latinos {even his family}, hates Asians, hates mooselimbs, caused AIDS, caused heart problems, hates wymen, hates himself and is the devil.

If I missed any problem, just remember, Bush did it.

One of Bush’s 32 great-great-great-great-grandfathers was a slave trader? I guess that means slavery and thus the Civil War were Bush’s fault.

Five generations back? Let’s see...that’s 32 family trees (assuming no direct inbreeding), 250 years ago, converging in one person.
And, the character of a person in one of those family trees back then, engaged in reprehensible but generally accepted endeavors, is supposed to taint the present day character?
Sounds like the same stretch of imagination that drives the ‘fight’ for reparations, the lame logic that drives LaRaza, and the DNC.
Get over it.
