Why they want Thomas Jefferson banned

Breitbart News reported, "Students at Hofstra University in Long Island, New York, demanded on Friday that the school remove a statue of Thomas Jefferson, arguing that it is not possible for the university to have the statue on campus while also being an institution that 'prides itself on diversity and inclusion.' Students also called on the university to train its faculty and professors to behave in a more politically correct manner."

If you believe in diversity and inclusion, you do not ban people.

These punks are the foot soldiers for oppressors. Their call to strip President Jefferson of his rightful place on Mount Rushmore is pure sanctimony. They hate him not because he owned slaves but because he said all men are created equal.

These programmed parrots just say what their previously programmed professors repeat from their professors. Their hand-me-down thoughts are part of the conformity necessary to install a totalitarian state.

Jefferson threatens the state today from the grave because he left behind the foundation of a new nation conceived in liberty.

In our Declaration of Independence, he said, "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. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness."

Those five words — All Men Are Created Equal — threaten those promoting a despotic state.

It is why the left has marginalized Martin Luther King into the mascot of a federal holiday. His memorial on the National Mall does not enshrine his bold words: "I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character."

Instead it quotes his opposition to the Vietnam War and about 10 other things, including a condensed version of his snipe at critics within the civil rights movement: "I was a drum major for justice, peace and righteousness."

The full quote is "Yes, if you want to say that I was a drum major, say that I was a drum major for justice, say that I was a drum major for peace, I was a drum major for righteousness, and all the other shallow things will not matter."

The left went shallow in honoring him because his call for racial equality runs contrary to their goal of dividing America along lines of race in order to conquer it.

Attacking Jefferson 192 years after his death is part of that plan.

  1. Diversity and inclusion is for everybody except old white guys, Don. Yeah. It's for everybody except the people that built western civilization.

    I really don't give a damn about Jefferson, though. The more you read about him, the more you realize that he was a real prick who was blinded by ideas just as much as many leftists are today. His only positive attribute as president is that he didn't do much. The Louisiana Purchase was dropped into his lap, and he hated Hamilton and wanted his bank destroyed, but didn't have the skillset to do it.

    But if we're going to start ripping up History, let's start by tearing down historical institutions like the universities themselves. Tax them into oblivion. Break them up into individual colleges. Set a ceiling of two thousand dollars on how much you can borrow for education (heh). And take the kids who are protesting to Libya and sell them.

    2. Nonsense. I never have liked Jefferson. And the universities need to be taken down a notch. Nothing out of line here. Read up on Jefferson in relation to the French Revolution. He was on the side of the butchers.

  2. If all this BS had taken place back in the 1950's, Eisenhower would have declared marshal law and filled all the federal prisons with diversity and inclusion.

  3. They don't hate him because he said "all men are created equal". Face it; they hate him because he was White.

  5. They should only study civilizations that never had slavery, such as...um...ah...

    Why do they blithely assume they are morally superior to Jefferson?

    In an era where slavery was as common as breathing, Jefferson established the principles that would bring liberty. But in an era where liberty is as common as breathing--thanks to Jefferson--these students are promoting censorship, intolerance, ingratitude and moral grandstanding.

    Advantage: Thom.

  6. College administration should simply tell the students to shut up and get back to their studies.

  7. The only thing diversity is good for is improving your choices of restaurants....and that's all.

  8. Oddly, the arguments democrats gave in favor of enslaving blacks are the same as those they use today to justify welfare: blacks can't compete with whites and so must be provided food, housing and healthcare by a compassionate and well-intentioned master.

    Odd that universities never ask WHY slavery was allowed to exist and what moral reasons were given to justify it. Southern legislators gave many impassioned speeches in Congress glorifying the benefits of slavery to the slaves over the exploitation of workers by northern employers. Those speeches are readily available in the Congressional Record.

  9. Some purveyors of treason and sedition can be ignored, some liquidated.
    None allowed to actually succeed.
