I'm sure the response from the former White House would be, ah, he was just an old white man.

... and a slave-owner, because RACIST.

The one I really like is when they say he only thought Blacks were 3/5ths of a person.

When they bring that up you know they have no interest in truth.

What PioneerPreppy said.
If only the children were educated with the TRUTH of history, instead of the AGENDA!

Rev. Paul said...

Agreed, Preppy: the truth is that the "3/5 of person" rule was to prevent the states with slaves to have such a numerical advantage in the House that they'd be able to keep slavery legal forever (inserted here for those who don't already know that).

I concur, Guffaw. We mustn't allow people to learn the truth, else they'd want to throw off their Progressive overlords and seek freedom! Can't have that.

Words to heed for sure but I am afraid it's a little too late to turn the wagon around so the ride is going to be really rough.

Old NFO said...

Yep, totally ignored by the DC crowd... If they actually DID that, oh well, I can wish right?

Rev. Paul said...

You're right, Duke; the horses have left the barn. Forming a committee to study barn door design is a bit late.

NFO, you can wish all you like, as can we all.
