I clicked on the link, hoping to read the comments, because it's so rare that they are worth reading, but I couldn't find them.

Only skimmed the article, because there's only so much stupid a person can handle, but wasn't too surprised that it had the obligatory hatred against George Soros. Remember George Soros is evil for being a billionaire and using his considerable financial support to back politics he supports, but the Koch Brothers, despite being billionaires born into wealth and power, are Salt of the Earth Jes' Plain Folks and there's nothing wrong with them using their money to effectively hijack the country and make it work for them.

Dang...I was hoping it would be snarky, funny commentary calling out the article's BS instead of serving as its echo chamber; I was wrong and I probably should have known better.

Though given that Adams and Jefferson were rich white guys who believed that only certain people qualified as fully human, maybe it's a good thing we're not "children of Adams and Jefferson." In Adams's defense, unlike Jefferson, he didn't own slaves, but he did feel that women were property, not people, and he, like most of the Founding Fathers, probably felt that the vote belonged to property-owning men or, to put it another way, Rich White Guys.

So let's be the children of Harriett Tubman instead. The passage of time has allowed people to sanitize her image, but let's not forget that by the standards of her time, she was an outlaw and lawbreaker. She was stealing the property of good Southern gentlemen and helping to aid and abet fugitives. That's how they would have seen her. Only illness kept her from participating in John Brown's raid on Harper Ferry and during the Civil War, she served as a spy for the union.

You're new to the Internet and the Right, aren't you? :) It's okay; we all were that way once. Of course, it is partially my fault for leaping to conclusions.
