Slandering the Founders
By Good Ole Boy/Jim
When you ask a school age child about the Founding Fathers or liberals about them you invariably hear about them owning slaves. This is a concerted effort to belittle and demean them. The liberals are fearful of the people reading the writings of the Founders, there are many of their quotations that warn us of the current dangers of today’s liberal agenda. Not all of the founders even were in slave states but they are lumped in too. Socialism/ Communism has killed untold millions but liberals ignore that fact but vilify the founders because some owned slaves.
Washington and Jefferson were the two most notable slave owners among the founders and both were against the practice if only in words or also in action. Jefferson’s first draft of the Declaration of Independence, “the CHRISTIAN king of Great Britain. Determined to keep open a market where MEN should be bought and sold, he has prostituted his negative for suppressing every legislative attempt to prohibit or to restrain this execrable commerce.” He later wrote “We have the wolf by the ears; and we can neither hold him, nor safely let him go. Justice is in one scale, and self-preservation in the other.” Jefferson planned to free his slaves when he was out of debt, which he never achieved. The politicians of today leave office bloody rich, not so in his time.
In his will Washington emancipated his 123 slaves and provided financial support for the elderly and vocational training for the young. During his life he showed he was against slavery “Not only do I pray for it, on the score of human dignity, but I can clearly forsee that nothing but the rooting out of slavery can perpetuate the existence of our union, by consolidating it in a common bond of principle.”
Had they never made these statements or as Washington freed his slaves it can not diminish the importance of their words and writings. You can’t view them in a PC microscope of today. Benjamin Franklin, Samuel Adams, Patrick Henry, and Thomas Pain never owned slaves but they are painted with the same brush in schools to make them also illegitimate in today’s world. It sickens me to hear what our schools are teaching our kids about the Founders. Liberals are showing their hate for America. All of the Founders have no equals in our politicians. They stand head and shoulders above them. Were they here they would be shouting to the rooftops that we are betraying the Republic they formed and loved.
