Connecticut State Democrat Party Begins Erasing Thomas Jefferson and Andrew Jackson

Looks like Alexander Hamilton won’t be the last dead white male to get nudged off our currency. Thomas Jefferson and Andrew Jackson have been deemed politically incorrect:

Thomas Jefferson and Andrew Jackson are history in Connecticut.

Under pressure from the NAACP, the state Democratic Party will scrub the names of the two presidents from its annual fundraising dinner because of their ties to slavery.

Party leaders voted unanimously Wednesday night in Hartford to rename the Jefferson Jackson Bailey dinner in the aftermath of last month’s fatal shooting of nine worshipers at a historic black church in Charleston, S.C.

A mentally ill maniac named Dylann Roof didn’t commit the murders. The South did — or so we are led to believe. That’s why the liberal establishment reacted by repressing the flag of the South. Great historical figures from the South will follow the Rebel Flag down the memory hole just as quickly as Democrats can acquire the leverage to make it happen.

By a remarkable coincidence, most of the primary Founding Fathers were Southerners. They will be erased, along with their works, so that a new, more impeccably politically correct society might take the place of ours.

Ironically, the great Andrew Jackson, a key figure in our victory in the War of 1812, was the first Democrat president. How fortunate for him that he didn’t live to see what his party has become.

The decision is believed to be unprecedented and could prompt Democrats in other states with similarly named events to follow suit.

“I see it as the right thing to do,” Nick Balletto, the party’s first-year chairman, told Hearst Connecticut Media on Wednesday night.

Thomas Jefferson, the author of the Declaration of Independence, is now reviled as a thought criminal. It would be impossible to overstate the significance.

“You can’t change history, but you don’t have to honor it,” Balletto said.

True enough, you can’t change history. But you can erase it and substitute a forgery in its place. That’s how those who control the present control the past, and through it the future.

The greatest Americans will go down the memory hole.
