The Democrat Party and the alt-left snowflakes have driven identity politics into a show of absurdity. Apparently, they have just discovered that Thomas Jefferson and Andrew Jackson at one time owned slaves. What a horror for them. What will happen when they discover that the Democrat Party in the old south was the home of the Klue Klus Klan? Whatever you do, don’t Google anything about Senators and the KKK. Senator Robert Byrd will show up prominently. The social justice warrior fad is going to self-destruct if it gets wind of that information. All this self-righteous breast beating is almost Kabuki Theater.
As Written By Judd Gregg for The Hill:
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness” — Thomas Jefferson, writing the Declaration of Independence,
“I did not have sexual relations with that woman, Miss Lewinsky” — President William Jefferson Clinton.
The Democratic Party of New Hampshire, along with its counterparts in several other states, has dropped the name of its signature annual dinner.
Previously known as the “Jefferson-Jackson Dinner,” it will now be renamed the “Kennedy-Clinton Dinner.”
This change was done to observe the politically correct standards that have led to the censorship of history by the contemporary left.
Thomas Jefferson and Andrew Jackson, it turns out, have just been discovered by the Democratic leadership to have been slave owners.
Of course all the founding fathers who later became president, with the exception of Adams, were slave owners.
For consistency’s sake, liberals probably should not hold meetings in, or go to, Washington. They should not read, or allow their children to read, the Declaration of Independence written by Jefferson. They should not attend the University of Virginia, which was founded by Jefferson.
