"...It didn't matter the color of their skin, it didn't matter their language, it didn't matter their economic status, it didn't matter if they descended from nobility, or whether they were of a higher or a lower class... it made no difference. Once you got here we are all the same."
Irish, white men, were treated completely different. Signs posted in business denying Irishmen jobs before they even went in to apply. Blacks were sold here as slaves, the Native Americans were even stabbed in the back by the founders who "came in peace".
"...we know their was slavery that was still tolerated when the nation began. We know that was an evil and it was scourge and a block and a stain upon our history. But we also know that our founding fathers that wrote those documents worked tirelessly until slavery was no more in the United States. And I think it is high time that we recognize the contribution of our forebears who worked tirelessly, men like John Quincy Adams, who would not rest until slavery was extinguished in the country."
- The constitution itself established that a slave is 3/5ths of a person.
- George Washington himself owned slaves.
- John Quincy Adams did work against slavery, but he was not a founding father. She did however imply that he was. He died years before emancipation and the Civil War.
She has said the Revolutionary War began in New Hampshire, though it had begun in Massachusetts. She confused New Hampshire history for Massachusetts history... big mistake. NH natives take their history very seriously and are proud of their home state. Whoops...
Bachmann who launched her campaign in Waterloo, Iowa, which by the way is her HOMETOWN, said to a Fox News reporter, that she was proud to be in a town that John Wayne was from, because she embodied his ideals. Only problem is that the actor John Wayne was not from Waterloo, however, the serial killer John Wayne Gacy was.
Bottom line is this, this Tea Party Joke of an American Politician does not deserve any kind of Presidential Nomination. Although if she were to get it for the Republicans, it would not be hard for Obama to claim another 4 years in the white house and maybe finally keep all his promises and lead our country down the right path.
She tries to defend marriage by glorifying or sugarcoating slavery in the past, by doing nothing other than offering up "facts" that are completely inaccurate (no surprise there) and by signing vows against Islam and Homosexuality (because those two go hand in hand). She claims she as president will not interfere with any state that votes in its own laws, yet would define marriage only as between a man and a woman and root that into the United States Constitution, which would in turn interfere with and overturn any existing marriage equality laws. Hypocrite much?
I'm really sick of this bitch. She needs to get off the podium. What's lame is Republicans will not invite Fred Karger (Republican) to any Republican Debate, mainly because he is gay. He gets his facts straight, but he's gay so he's not worth it. I believe there is a law against discrimination based on sexual orientation. I personally believe they are discriminating against him as well. Not to mention all the shady shit Mitt Romney has been pulling and HOPING to fly under the radar with isn't quite working out, due to Karger personally filing formal complaints against him seeking full investigations to all of his fraud.
