In the current news cycle, the difference between a conspiracy theory and actual news is about six weeks. Remember when President Trump commented that if ‘the woke people’ kept on tearing down statues they would eventually get to Thomas Jefferson. Well, they did.
Breitbart reported the following yesterday:
“Trump has posited that the statues of Founding Fathers could come down following the removal of Confederate symbols across the country. Historians say he’s wrong,” wrote the far-left liars at NBC News in 2017.
…“Art handlers packed up an 884-pound statue of Jefferson in a wooden crate Monday,” reports the New York Post, “after a mayoral commission voted to banish the likeness of the nation’s third president from City Hall where its resided for nearly two centuries — because he owned slaves.”
The article concludes:
It’s not Thomas Jefferson owning slaves that offends the left. All kinds of people owned slaves in those days, including many of the oh-so-precious and noble “indigenous peoples” of North America we’re supposed to gush over. What offends the left is Thomas Jefferson’s ideas.
He was a man who stood for the very thing that most threatens the fascist left, and that’s individual liberty—the right of each of us to live, speak, act, behave, believe, and worship in whatever way we choose.
That’s what the left despises about Jefferson and the Founding Fathers. That’s why they want him disappeared, removed, blacklisted and forgotten.
Erasing history accomplishes nothing. We can’t change what was culturally acceptable hundreds of years ago. I wonder how Americans in future generations will look at abortion. I wonder if they will realize how many minority babies were murdered versus the number of white babies. We are not in a moral position to criticize slavery. Many of the government programs we have instituted are no less immoral.
