Hal Rounds, the Fayette County attorney and spokesman for the group, said during a recent news conference that there has been "an awful lot of made-up criticism about, for instance, the founders intruding on the Indians or having slaves or being hypocrites in one way or another.""The thing we need to focus on about the founders is that, given the social structure of their time, they were revolutionaries who brought liberty into a world where it hadn't existed, to everybody -- not all equally instantly -- and it was their progress that we need to look at," Rounds said, according to The Commercial Appeal.
Excuse me while I barf. Hurl. Upchuck. Blow chunks.
That's all I can think about doing after reading that story on Huffington Post. We should all focus on how great the founding fathers were, not the fact that they were just fine with treating some people like property while others got rights.
As if that was really any different from a monarchy. Trust me, to the black folks being beaten and raped, it sure wasn't.
It's funny what certain types of white folks consider the "important stuff". Cherry trees and lighting = important. Human bondage = not so important..
At this point any black person who aligns themselves with the Tea Party movement is a race traitor. Period.
