Many have asked for a video copy of Sharpton’s boneheaded quote. Here is a link to it. I can’t find it on a platform that will allow me to embed it, so follow the link to see it yourself.
One day, our children’s children will read American history, and can you imagine our reading that James Madison or Thomas Jefferson tried to overthrow the government so they could stay in power?
The best part? MSNBC though his quote was so pithy and poignant that they decided to highlight it on their feed:
I’m so glad that MSNBC brought in a subject matter expert for this segment. So I have a question for Mr. Sharpton. Who wrote the following phrase?
whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive… it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.
- Thomas Jefferson
- Donald Trump
- James Madison
