One nation with two diametrically opposed histories. Multiple languages. Religions that have fought each other for centuries are now forced to coexist on American soil.
Rip down Monticello! It’s the only way to forget the horrors of slavery!
Perhaps someday we will be able to implement Abraham Lincoln's plan for them, the most prescient solution. Abraham Lincoln knew what he was dealing with, and the only way to solve the problem. Lincoln's death was perhaps the worst tragedy this country has had to face, and the consequences of his death still plague us.
What sort of idiocy is this? I visited Monticello back in May and one of the important and interesting things to learn about Jefferson was that he had his slaves freed and not only that, he had them learn important skilled trades so they would be self sufficient upon gaining their freedom.
Embeciles. UVA and Monticello which provide most of Charlottesville’s employment and income due to students and tourists can be attributed to Jefferson.
Occasionally I’ll hear one of these black libs say they want segregation. No they don’t. They’d be living in a place like 3rd world Africa in no time.
One more step in the destruction of this country. “Who controls the past, controls the future, and who controls the present, controls the past” -Orwell
We’re heading to a hot CW II. We’re in the cold phase right now.
The founding fathers were not great men because they were perfect. They were far from perfect, obviously. No, They were great men because they understood that they were not perfect and as their legacy they left in place a governing principle that allowed for stability in times of change and for change in times of stability. It’s no more complicated than that.
If the late TJ is a ‘problem’ then shouldn’t the City of Charlotesville VA return ALL property, money gained from that property, invalidate EVERY graduation certificate, return ALL the money etc etc etc.
No sense just shunning the mans name, may as well rid yourself of the burden of guilt of USING his name in the past to ‘make money’?
Like had been said before, if the Yankees etal REALLY want to do something about Racism etc, don’t pick on K Smith - who was doing a ‘popular ‘Negro’ song, but return any and all gains that you may have stumbled across when the Blacks were NOT ALLOWED to play on your fields etc etc - don’t worry that was the ‘custom’ at the time, YOU didn’t allow them to play.
And there should be little doubt in ANYONES mind that in the next 100 or so years, the ‘little darlins of the time’ will deem it fit to remove ALL vestiges of the two World Wars and the (so called) smaller ‘brush fires’ that ensued....
There are specific reasons Jefferson is the first of the Founding Fathers the PC Revisionists want to demonize. Obviously firstly he was a Southerner. Secondly, it is Jefferson who was most opposed to centralized power, most in favor of states rights and who was the most influential with Southerners. In the 19th century the South was dominated by Jeffersonian Democrats who most closely align with libertarians and conservatives today. They wanted limited spending, low taxes and balanced budgets and a noninterventionist foreign policy in addition to limitations on the power of the federal government and states rights.
Who does that sound like? It is still the dominant political philosophy in the South today. This is all anathema to Leftists.
They were never going to stop at Confederate symbols and leaders. After Jefferson, Madison, Washington, Patrick Henry and George Mason will be up next to be smeared.
The fake DNA results about Jefferson has been debunked, but none of that made it to the media. He didn’t have children with his slaves. Check out the Steven Crowder video from yesterday. They sullied his reputation, and now he can’t fight back.
Jefferson was a brilliant man. Liberals ruin everything.
A pox on all who preach the BS that ‘diversity is a strength’.
I pray to God that we will be able to save this once great and powerful nation.
It will take white men of courage and conviction to stand up. Are there many left?
and instead will observe a day recognizing the emancipation of enslaved African Americans.
Who were held in Slavery and Bondage by the DEMOCRATS!!!
Charlottesville is named after King George IIIs queen. George, of course assigned licenses for slave traders in the British colonies.
That ought to twist them up a little, but it wont.
