The Much Maligned Jefferson

Unfortunately, I’m beginning to discover just how evil is the history rewriting that’s been going on, and am reading The War on History; The Conspiracy to Rewrite America’s Past by Jarrett Stepman     and it’s compelling.  It’s also upsetting!

He goes through all the tearing down of Christopher Columbus and why it’s all hogwash.  Can’t imagine why anyone would bother to attack him!

But then he goes on to the way Jefferson, the one and only Thomas Jefferson, author of the Declaration of Independence, which influence the entire world, and lay the foundation for our country, has been maligned and attacked.  I’m livid over this!

What in the Declaration of Independence is it that so threatens the left?  Is it that “we hold these truths to be self-evident” that they can’t stand?  Only the left gets to dictate what is a “truth?”  Only the collective, or group of collectives that are included in this insane intersectionality they are preaching!  Ugh!

This great nation was founded on the principles expressed in that Declaration.  In it, Jefferson, also our third president, also the one who dealt with Napoleon and increased the size of this nation by about another half with the Louisiana Purchase, lays out the firm principles of liberty for the individual.  Not the collective, not the government!  “Governments are instituted among men deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.”  Is that so horrible to the collective?  To the hive minded who want majority rule so they can take from the minority whatever they wish?

I’m going to calm down now.  I promise!
