    I mean, a bit of research shows you that he was also a slave owner, and despite slowly growing aware of how screwed up it was he still took little action against it, basically acting as if it was a necessary evil.

    Mind you, that's after he treated slaves pretty awful himself before he started to change his views.
    George Washington has been elevated to divine status in the US for various reasons. Despite having been... kinda an ok to below average general and kinda shitty person. He did some great stuff for sure, but he's treated like a Saint when he was anything but.

    No, it's not that. Christmas is offensive to the Far-left as a whole because "Ewww, religion!!!". The Far-left being comprised mostly of extremist atheists as well as people who feel rejected by religion because their various preferences don't go hand in hand with religious dogmas. And since the companies are eager to virtue signal to the Far-left, the concept is being replaced with Festivus or whatever non-religious concept they came up with.

    No this is accurate. I am an Atheist and used to work with the Atheist bloc myself. Back then the far left atheist had a smug sense of superiority as well.

    The retorts to the declaration of independence suggests otherwise they openly pointed out the hypocrisy of declaring all men are created equal while having slaves. I am not sure why you think owning people being bad is a modern day concept.

    And that single line also ultimately culminated to the abolishment of slavery. If Washington didn't make the effort back then by laying the foundations of modern American values we would still have slavery and you and me would have believed slavery is ok.

    WTF! Mate we still have slavery to this day. And not all of them are based on race. It can be for money, power or religion.

    Wow you completely missed the point, the US was not the first country to abolish slavery. The fact that it exist today has nothing to do with what we are talking about. The founders were good with slavery due to a number of reasons including economic ones. Whether during their time or today it was not considered okay by everyone.

    Festivas is a joke from Seinfeld... and it wasn’t Athiests... if you think Festivas is real, you got trolled pretty hard core and are not only buying the troll, you are repeating it.

    Anyone, but not everyone. Which is why it sucks.

    Isn’t that like saying capitalism needs socialism to allow anyone to thrive? The more you need to manage by law, the more you are moving away from capitalism to socialism. The whole shtick of socialism, is managing by law, instead of corporate goons.

    You must first infest academia then you must rewrite history in media and then you must destroy any evidence that things have ever been different then you clam they are.

    This is all part of the communist playbook. We are entering the endgame now.

    Do you have polling from the 1800s to support that? that is a ludicrous statement most of the world was ruled by monarchy back then people had no choice in what was okay.
