One thing you have to give Young Republicans, they’ve been consistent in their equal measures of ignorance, privilege-blindness and arrogance for as long as they’ve existed.

It seems like another one of those GOP ouroboros rumors that they create, quote, then eventually use as evidence for some batshit crazy claim like this.

No. She was not. She absolutely believes that is true, probably because the history she learned was not accurate, but steeped in evangelical white supremacy.

I know they like to use whatever “truth” is useful in the moment, but when have Republicans ever thought of a freed slave as symbolic of the American Dream rather than a cheeseburger-eating southerner holding an AR-15, wearing a confederate flag sleeveless t-shirt, drinking a cheap piss-beer from a can, and watching a buddy blow up stuff with illegal fireworks?

The way they say freed slave, rather than former slave, makes it seem like it was a magical gift delivered by a tap from a Disney fairy godmother, rather than the return of something wrongfully stolen.

I think she was trying to say that slavery was good, because having slavery means you can put an end to slavery.

She probably learned all the history she cared to pay attention to at sunday school. Since gawd is the ultimate authority, there’s nothing to be taught at godless heathenry public schools she needs to know.
