The Monster of Monticello

New York

In the New York Times, a wonderful new essay by Paul Finkelman on Thomas Jefferson which gives us some real insight into how Jewish legal historians perceive the Founding Fathers:

“THOMAS JEFFERSON is in the news again, nearly 200 years after his death – alongside a high-profile biography by the journalist Jon Meacham comes a damning portrait of the third president by the independent scholar Henry Wiencek.

We are endlessly fascinated with Jefferson, in part because we seem unable to reconcile the rhetoric of liberty in his writing with the reality of his slave owning and his lifetime support for slavery. Time and again, we play down the latter in favor of the former, or write off the paradox as somehow indicative of his complex depths.

Neither Mr. Meacham, who mostly ignores Jefferson’s slave ownership, nor Mr. Wiencek, who sees him as a sort of fallen angel who comes to slavery only after discovering how profitable it could be, seem willing to confront the ugly truth: the third president was a creepy, brutal hypocrite…”

    That is very funny, test. I can just see the slave trade being run out of a place like Elephantopolis. During the Byzantine Empire (lasted about 1,000 yrs) and completely airbrushed out of kosher baloney history, the Jewish owned slavers plied up the coasts of NW Europe for the people like the Goths, the Gauls, the Gaels, the Saxons etc. The captives were sold South to the Arabs.

    Landshark is right. Ethnopolitics is the name of the real game in America and probably always has been. The White ethne who are the Posterity designated by the founding charter and documents should engage in ethnopolitical discourse on that basis.

    Finkelton is arguing ethnopolitics. Guilting the rival ethne with judaic ideologies like ‘equality’ is their schtik. Guilt=gelt. Finkelton is just running the tribal schtik.

    Ultimately, the stakes are bigger than their holocaust TM reparations racket

    The White ethne who are the designated Posterity of the American Founding do not have a lot of time to figure out who they are and to assert their own interests from their own history written in their own words.

    Little bit of fun.

    Was Sally Hemmings like…

    Haley Berry?

    Rashida Jones?

    Or

    Jessica Alba?

    Irrespective of any suggested relationship with Jefferson. Rashida is only black if she wants to identify as such. Like Plessey. If she resembled either Alba or Jones it’s quite hard to think of her as a black.
