Why did the progressives have to steal our founding fathers away from us?

There are many reasons, of course, but here is a good illustration:

This would have resonated very well among Americans in 1912, because back in those days we knew full well who the founders were, it had been in the textbooks. Even a century after Washington's passing, his star was so bright, he was such an incredible role model, that the point of this cartoon is impossible to miss - "Theodore Roosevelt, YOU are no George Washington!"

What the progressives had to do, is clear. Revise history. One of the first places that progressives established as a stronghold was academia, you may know that Woodrow Wilson was the president of Princeton for 6 years. Having complete control over the universities afforded progressives a great opportunity. Someone gets the bright idea about removing The Colored Patriots of the American Revolution from school books, give it a short time for people to forget, then they've given themselves a convenient way to now attack the Founders for being racists. Then they could remove from the textbooks that several of our Founders were dirt poor. Now the progressives can sneer at our Founders for being nothing but a bunch of rich white racist elitists. And finally, it's put into motion to take the Founder's faith out of the textbooks, now the Founders really aren't even the Founders. Rich athiest racists, a bunch of white elitists who now only exist on a bunch of old dusty documents. Why on earth would you consider any of them a role model?

This was done so the progressives could rule over us. Sun Tzu said:

If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle - Sun Tzu (Chapter 3)

You don't know who you are as an American, and you don't know who the progressives are. Both have been removed from the textbooks. You're ripe for the taking.

  1. Woodrow Wilson was president of one university for six years, therefore ALL universities were under the complete control of progressives? Your conclusion is not supported by your evidence, unless you think that Princeton was the only university in America at that time.

    Leaving aside the question of black founding fathers, the fact remains that several of the white founding fathers were slave owners, and the original Constitution made each black slave "worth" 3/5 of a white citizen. In what way could that be construed as anything but racist?

    Lastly, the founding fathers weren't, by and large, atheists. I haven't heard anyone claiming that they were, but perhaps you have different sources than any I'm aware of. Neither were most of the founding fathers Christian, however. They were, for the most part, deists, and students of the Enlightenment, which espouses a belief in natural law that does not come down from anyone's god. It is amusing that you are accusing others of revisionist history while making statements that imply your own belief in Christian Revisionist history.
