Al Sharpton is always showing off his mastery of being a dunce (read Dear Al Sharpton: You Lying, Race-baiting, Hobbling Bag of Human Feces…). So, it’s no surprise he’s speaking out over the Confederate statue kerfuffle. Except, Sharpton’s taking things a step further. Now, he want’s the Jefferson Monument nixed, because Jefferson owned slaves and he doesn’t want his tax dollars paying for it. Yes, really…
MSNBC host Al Sharpton is calling for ending federal funding for maintenance and security for the Jefferson Memorial because the third U.S. president owned slaves.
“When you look at the fact that public monuments are supported by public funds you’re asking me to subsidize the insult of my family. I would repeat that the public should not be paying to uphold somebody who has had that kind of background,” Sharpton told CBS host Charlie Rose.
What tax dollars is the “good reverend” talking about, anyway? The last time I checked, Al owed copious amounts of coinage in back taxes. I’m no expert, but I think you’d have to actually pay your taxes before you can gripe about where the money goes.
Furthermore, since when were leftists opposed to funding things they don’t like? Leftists expect conservatives to suck it up when the left blows federal fundage on infanticide and welfare for illegal pendejos. But, money going to honor the memory of the architect of America? Out of the question, you slavery-loving racist.
The big question is where exactly does this “cleansing” of history end? The tale of America and its people is by no means perfect. But, when has anyone ever been perfect. Flaws aside, our founding padres did some pretty cool stuff.
This is further proof the left is intent on wiping out American history entirely. They may have something of an argument over the Confederate statues, but they have no intention of stopping there. The left has made their mission clear. Any American historical figures will be un-personed if they have even the slightest of character flaws. Translated, everybody.
