George Washington

Some "Hate Speech" by George Washington

Posted by Thomas DiLorenzo on February 22, 2011 07:24 AM 

Today is George Washington's birthday.  The following are a few of Washington's statements that would surely get him in trouble with the self-appointed thought police censors at the Southern Poverty Law Center, not to mention the university PC police on virtually every campus in America.  In fact, it's hard to think of more than a handful of colleges and universities that would invite George Washington as a guest speaker today if his views expressed in the following quotations were well known.   Even worse, he was a Southerner!

"Government is not reason; it is not eloquent; it is force.  Like fire, it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master."

"Firearms are second only to the Constitution in importance; they are the peoples' liberty teeth."

"The very atmosphere of firearms anywhere and everywhere restrains evil interference  they deserve a place of honor with all that's good."

"Over grown military establishments are under any form of government inauspicious to liberty, and are to be regarded as particularly hostile to republican liberty."

"The Constitution is the guide which I will never abandon."

"The Constitution vests the power of declaring war in Congress; therefore no offensive expedition of importance can be undertaken until after they shall have deliberated upon the subject and authorized such a measure."

"The marvel of history is the patience with which men and women submit to burdens unnecessarily laid upon them by their governments."

"It is impossible to rightly govern a nation without God and the Bible."

"The time is near at hand which must determine whether Americans are to be fee men or slaves."
