Thomas Jefferson, author of the Declaration of Independence, played a role rivaled only by George Washington and James Madison in defining America. These three are the greatest men in our history. Even adversaries of America must respect them. Only the most committed enemies of America would want to erase them — by which I mean vermin like Pete Buttigieg:
Buttigieg, who is running in a crowded Democratic field for president, said on Friday he believes renaming events and things named after President Thomas Jefferson is the “right thing to do.”
Like virtually all landowners in 18th century Virginia, Jefferson owned slaves. This is the pretext leftists have used to demand he be frog-marched to the Memory Hole. Washington and Madison also owned slaves; they will soon follow.
To judge the people of the 18th century according to 21st century cultural mores is of course preposterous. Romans owned slaves too; maybe we should abolish Little Caesars pizza.
The actual objective is to make us ashamed of our own heritage so that it can be obliterated and replaced with something that we will never tolerate so long as we have any pride.
