Not even America’s first president is safe from the wrath of the liberal agenda.
On Presidents Day, activists bashed George Washington as a “slave master” and demanded reparations.
A group of activists held a protest next to a statue of George Washington this Presidents Day to call attention to the country’s Founding Fathers who owned slaves.
One of the activists climbed up on the statue in Newark’s Washington Park with a sign that said “George Washington: Slave Master.”
Members of the People’s Organization for Progress say that Congress should approve reparations to African-Americans whose ancestors were enslaved.
More on Washington, per Fox News:
A strand of white hair tucked into a shabby almanac on the shelf of a college library in upstate New York has been revealed to be from one of the nation’s Founding Fathers.
Union College, located in Schenectady, said in a news release that the lock of hair belonging to George Washington was found during a recent inventory review of the facility, inside a leather book titled “Gaines Universal Register or American and British Kalendar for the Year 1793.”
“This is a very significant treasure,” said India Spartz, the head of the college’s special collections and archives. “It’s a tremendous testament to history and our connection to some of the most important historical figures.”
So, reparations should be paid to black people who were never slaves themselves, nor were their parents, grandparents, or great-grandparents – and on and on?
