While many right-wing pundits and "Tea Party" activists
are promoting the supposed "wisdom of our founding fathers"--
remember -- some of those "fathers" were slave-owners.
LEST WE FORGET --
In those days...
* Black people were slaves on plantations.
* Indians (Native Americans) were on reservations...
* Asians were used as cheap labor (mostly for doing laundry).
Most of the right-wing pundents, organizers of the TEA PARTY RALLIES, and fanatics who have been offering excessive complaints against President Obama are living in "glass houses" themselves.
See what others think of Mr. Beck --
Megan McCain attacks the TEA PARTIERS...saying:
"Congressman Tancredo went on TV and he was the first opening speaker and he said, 'People who could not even spell the word vote or say it in English put a committed socialist ideologue in the White House whose name is Barack Hussein Obama.' And then he went on to say that people at the convention should have to pass literacy tests in order to be able to vote in this country, which is the same thing that happened in the 50's to prevent African Americans from voting. It's innate racism."
The TEA PARTY PROTESTERS DENY RACISM WHILE SIMULTANEOUS DISPLAYING FOUL SIGNS LIKE THIS ABOUT THE FIRST BLACK PRESIDENT. AND THIS IS NOT THE WORST OF THE SIGNS.
RON PAUL IS ONE OF THE FOUNDERS OF
THE TEA PARTY MOVEMENT.
RON PAUL claims he is for "liberty and justice under the Constitution" -- but he did publish a NEWSLETTER under his name that was filled with ugly, foul, derogatory comments about BLACK PEOPLE, Gays, and others...
His foul, racist newsletter was not the only problem. Ron Paul has voted on many occasions along the lines with other known fanatical anti-Civil Rights Republicans, such as: J. Helms, J. McCain, Trent Lott, Pat Robertson, and THE JOHN BIRCH SOCIETY -- opposing the Dr. King holiday, affirmative action, honoring Rosa Parks, and other Civil Rights Laws.
YES, SOME OF THESE "TEA PARTY" ORGANIZERS AND RON PAUL HAVE FANATICAL, RACIST TIES TO SOME VERY QUESTIONABLE GROUPS.
FOUNDING FATHERS WHO OWNED SLAVES:
* George Washington
* Thomas Jefferson
* Ben Franklin
* James Madison ..........and others
(only a few did not own slaves)
Although many have tried to rationalize and excuse these true events of American History -- frankly there is no good excuse for the horrible institution of slavey that tarnishes the history of the U.S.A.
The FOUNDERS even put a clause in the CONSTITUTION...proclaiming Black slaves as 3/5 of human. It has been reported by researchers that Washington and Jefferson had children by Black slave women -- and still did not seek to fight against this horrible institution, which put their own children in bondage.
HOW COULD AMERICA'S FOUNDERS write so much about "freedom...equality, abolishing tyranny" ...etc. -- and hold slaves...that they did not treat well ?????
IT IS AN ISSUE THAT MANY PEOPLE DEBATE ABOUT EVEN TODAY.
HOW CAN SLAVE-OWNERS CLAIM TO BE "FREEDOM FIGHTERS" ???
SLAVERY WAS A HORRIBLE INSTITUTION
...not a kind favor to Blacks.
BLACK SLAVES BUILT THE WHITE HOUSE....
The National Archives in Washington, D.C., has documents, payrolls and pay stubs that reveal the stories of the slaves who built the U.S. PRESIDENTS' residence. Archivist Reginald Washington has studied the documents, and shares details about the laborers' lives.
"One of the things that I found was that actual African-American slaves were used in the construction of the U.S. Capitol and the White House. Out of just about the 600 or so people who worked on the Capitol, maybe about 400 were African-American slaves."
"The area where Barack Obama is going to take his oath of office, right in front of that, there will be hundreds of thousands of people sitting in chairs. That area used to be a tent city for these slaves and workers."
"Most people look at the Statue of Freedom now and they think, this is the statue of an American Indian on top of the Capitol. No, it's not. It's actually a statue of a freed slave with an American eagle helmet on top. What a lot of people don't know about the National Mall, Capitol, Supreme Court area is that African-American slaves were held in bondage in slave jails on some of these sites."
