Our Founding Fathers

Today I got an email with the following tag line.

“Why the Founding Fathers would want us all to have fast Internet”

No, they wouldn’t have. They didn’t even want most of us to vote. Our founding fathers would have wanted high speed internet for themselves, i.e. rich, white land owners. Once again, patriotism is used here to sell, offering a reminder that our founding fathers were great wise men, who loved us all and wanted the best for us. Our founding fathers where (with little exception) slave owners who launched a campaign of genocide against native peoples in a quest for money.

Why do I keep repeating this? Because the enemy keeps repeating the lies.
