It's from the Trump "administration".   That's all that needs to be said.  Like everything else they barfed up.

Hrm. I dont know what their goal was here other then to get the yahoos uhmericanz all riled up about those dirty Democrats (sorry they say 'progressives' in there).  It has no real sources to back it up it claims, they gloss over a lot of history and it really seems geared towards 6th graders in the way it was written.

I wonder if the Romans were fed garbage like this before the end.

Fun read, the part about slavery is great. They somehow manage to frame us as world leaders in the abolishment of slavery. Interesting.

The way they frame the founding fathers is like saying 'You know just because Harvey Weinstein did those things, he should still be held up high because of Pulp Fiction'.

It really is garbage like this on why we can't move ahead as a nation. We did horrible things to black people - we need to own that as a people, not whitewash history to make it seem better then it was and we need to move the F forward if we want any chance to become a better nation.

You can recognize the great accomplishments of Washington and Jefferson without being an apologist for slavery.  It's ok to admit that these were flawed individuals - making any politician appear infallible is incredibly stupid.

"we were way ahead of the rest of the world because even though they didn't actually do anything about slavery in 1789, many of the founders did acknowledge that slavery was bad. even though many of those same were also slaveholders."

Lol its comical.

Like I get not throwing out the baby with the bathwater and condemning everything the founders did because they owned slaves. But to go completely the other way and pretend they were world leaders in the abolishment of slavery is ridiculous.

Right?

They did mention Washington freed all his slaves, but neglected to mention that Jefferson didn’t.  Lol

this. why is "THIS" so hard ?

 

admit the flaws, acknowledge the great deeds and let people form their own opinion of historical people and events.
