Personally, I think Thomas Jefferson wasn’t quite a man who could bear up under the consequences of his own principles, and that Andrew Jackson was a homicidal maniac. But they were both patriots, and the country would be a lot worse off if neither had been born*. Including the parts of the country who are freaking out at seeing Jefferson’s and Jackson’s names on a memorial dinner.
PS: Seriously, though: if the Democrats simply must excise their history like this, Woodrow Wilson absolutely has to be next on the chopping block. The man was a racist totalitarian-loving monster whose career was only cut short by an exceedingly well-timed stroke.
*For one thing, it’d be a heck of a lot smaller. Thomas Jefferson acquired the Louisiana Purchase, and Andrew Jackson made sure that we kept it at the Battle of New Orleans.
