Coard: President Thomas Jefferson: A pedophile rapist | Remark

0

In my Freedom’s Journal column last week here in the Philadelphia Tribune, I exposed the lie about President George Washington’s supposed wooden teeth and revealed the truth that they were “torn from the heads of his slaves ”.

White racists who read it have become ballistic. They denied. They screamed. They screamed. They screamed. They insulted. They trolled. Most importantly, they unwittingly made my column viral on social media. And for that, I say, “Thank you, racist whites. Thank you very much! ”I also say that if you were crazy about this Washington column, you are going to be furious about this Thomas Jefferson column.

Jefferson, the third President of the United States and the man credited with drafting the Declaration of Independence – which hypocritically proclaimed “All men. [and women] are created equal ”- was not just a slaveholder. He was also a pedophile rapist. Do you want proof ? OKAY.

As an envoy from the United States and a minister to France, Jefferson began to live there periodically from 1784 to 1789. He took with him his eldest daughter Martha and a few of those he enslaved, including James Hemings. In 1787, he asked his daughter Polly to join him. This meant that Polly’s enslaved maid, 14-year-old seamstress Sarah “Sally” Hemings (James’ younger sister), was to accompany her.

Sally and James were both among six Mulatto descendants of Jefferson’s stepfather, John Wayles, and his slave “maid” Betty Hemings. Sally and James were the half-siblings of Thomas’ late wife Martha Wayles Skelton Jefferson (meaning Thomas and Sally were technically related).

Thomas Jefferson, after repeatedly raping Sally in Paris, made her pregnant. Her first child died after returning to America. But she has six other children from Thomas in Monticello.

But you don’t have to believe me. You can read the official January 2000 report of the Thomas Jefferson Memorial Foundation research committee, which concluded, based on DNA studies, primary and secondary documents, oral histories of the descendants of Jefferson and Hemings. and nationally recognized academics, that there is a “high probability that Thomas Jefferson was the father of Eston Hemings, and that he was most likely the father of Sally Hemings’ six children appearing in Jefferson’s records.” By “high probability” and “very likely” you know that this ratio actually meant, euphemistically, “absolute certainty.”

Due to Jefferson’s perverse and criminal lust for a black child, many people at that time did not understand why he had promoted the “Back To Africa” ​​movement. But those who knew the real deal knew he never really supported the idea of ​​black people being sent back to their homeland to be free, independent and prosper. Nope. That was not true. The truth, as Thomas Jefferson Memorial Foundation Emeritus Professor Peter S. Onuf noted, is that this was actually a ploy by Jefferson to try to cover up the Hemings children who were his. “Ghost family”.

Jefferson’s inhumanity as a pedophile rapist was not an aberration in terms of character. After all, he was a lifelong slaveholder.

He was the son of Peter Jefferson, a Virginia land slave owner who died in 1757, leaving eleven-year-old Thomas a huge estate. In 1767, he formally inherited 52 black human beings. When he drafted the Declaration of Independence in 1776, he held 175 black men, women and children in slavery. By 1822 he had increased that number to 267.

In addition to being a slave racist, he was a legislative racist. As pointed out by Joyce Oldham Appleby, professor emeritus of history at UCLA and past president of the Organization of American Historians and the American Historical Association, as well as by Arthur M. Schlesinger Jr., former professor of History at Harvard University and Professor Emeritus at CUNY Graduate Center, Jefferson objected to the practice of slave owners freeing their slaves because he claimed it would encourage rebellion. And, as John E. Ferling, professor emeritus of history at the University of West Georgia, noted, after Jefferson’s election to the Virginia House of Burgesses in 1769, he attempted to introduce laws that would essentially forbid free blacks to enter or leave this territory. and would have banned children whose fathers were of African descent. He also tried to deport white women who had children of black men. After his election as governor in 1779, he signed a bill to encourage enlistment in the War of Independence by compensating white men by paying a “sane nigger.”

But he wasn’t just a domestic racist. He was also an international racist. As Secretary of State in 1795, he gave $ 40,000 and a thousand guns to colonial French slave owners in Haiti in an attempt to defeat the slave rebellion of Toussaint L’Ouverture. As president, he supported French plans to regain power, loaned France $ 300,000 “for the relief of the Whites on the island” and in 1804 refused to recognize Haiti as a sovereign republic after its victory. military. Two years later, he imposed a trade embargo.

As well as being a perverse racist, slave owner, legislator, nationally and internationally, Jefferson was a blatantly ignorant racist. In his 1785 book titled “Notes on the State of Virginia,” he wrote on “the preference of the ‘oran-utan’ (that is, a monkey-like creature) for black women over black women. to those of… (his) own species. He also wrote that blacks have ‘a very strong and unpleasant odor’ and that they ‘are inferior to whites …’.

Oh, by the way, he was a lying racist too. His friend from the American Revolution, Polish nobleman Tadeusz Kosciuszko, came to America in 1798 to receive back pay for his military service. He then wrote a will ordering Jefferson to use all of Kosciuszko’s money and land in the United States to “free and educate the slaves.” Jefferson agreed to do so. After Kosciuszko’s death in 1817, Jefferson refused to release or educate any of them.

The next time your children’s teachers, grandchildren, nieces, or nephews lie to them about the great Thomas Jefferson, ask them this: “How could a racist, pedophile (incestuous) slave-owner rapist be a great man?” man ? “
