Yes, I know looks do not matter but this woman looks like she fell out of the Ugly Tree, and hit every branch on the way down
Thomas Jefferson, author of the Declaration of Independence, saw people like Barbara Norton coming 2 centuries down the road:
A Louisiana lawmaker argued against a bill requiring public school students to recite excerpts from the Declaration of Independence because ‘only Caucasians were free’ at the time it was penned.
While the Declaration of Independence states ‘all men are created equal’, it took nearly a century later before the 15th amendment allowed men regardless of ‘race, color, or previous condition of servitude’ to vote.
Barbara Norton said it was ‘unfair’ to require children to recite the founding document, given it was written when slavery was still widespread.
Norton must be very pleased with herself. The bill was shelved.
According to the Advocate, the bill would have required students between the fourth and sixth grades to recite the passage: ‘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.’
In the realm of politics and government, these are the most important words ever written. But they must be forgotten, because racism.
It is all about the indoctrination. We cannot have kids learning our nation’s founding ideals now can we?
