Remember When Thomas Jefferson Raped Children And Statues Were Made To Honor Him


Thomas Jefferson, (a Founder of America who served as the third president of the United States from 1801 to 1809), owned a slave girl named “Sally Hemings”, who got pregnant at age 14 and then repeatedly after that, giving birth to 6 of his children.

I have sworn upon the altar of God, eternal hostility against every form of tyranny over the mind of man.

For Thomas Jefferson it was both pleasure and business since he owned each child as a slave to do with as he pleased.

History taught in school, would have us believe that a 14 year old child, who can’t say no, wants an old spent man forcing himself on her in a basement (night after night); And that afterwards she is more than happy to clean house and tend to the white children that live in luxury. Watching all day as her people are brutalized in their living conditions, food, and labor, while she waits for night so that she can be raped again.

We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

Thomas Jefferson

Slave owners raped children, then the children they gave birth too. Unless you think pedophiles have morals for some children over others.

In matters of style, swim with the current; in matters of principle, stand like a rock.

  1. Do you know how old he was when he married his 23 year old widowed cousin who was actually Sally’s half sister ( do you understand why ?)
    And she went with them to France as her ’special helper’. Do you know about this ?
    And that he inherited ‘a plantation with slaves’ from her father that was nothing but a disaster of debt …

    Do you know about the ‘real DNA studies’ ?

    Where did you get your information ? Ready to swear by your ‘sources’.
    Do you know anything about the ‘crap newspapers’ of those times ? ? ?
    How many have your read – name some ….

    What do you really know about Jefferson, or Washington, or Lee, or Lincoln !

    • You Asked — “Do you know how old he was when he married his 23 year old widowed cousin who was actually Sally’s half sister ( do you understand why ?)”

      My Response — Thomas Jefferson was 29 years old when he married Martha Wayles.
      He married for either 1) 10,000 acres and 130 slaves OR 2) the love of singing with Martha

      You Stated — “And she went with them to France as her ’special helper’. Do you know about this ?”

      My Response — Yes I am aware, the moment she arrived in France she was free and no longer a slave under French law. Thomas Jefferson had to make a deal with her to return to the US otherwise she wouldn’t leave. The deal was to free her children from slavery so that they would live free lives in the US.

      You Stated — “And that he inherited ‘a plantation with slaves’ from her father that was nothing but a disaster of debt ”

      My Response — Incorrect. There was a mass of debts and bad deals left to Thomas Jefferson via the inheritance but after everything was settled he was left with 10,000 acres and 130 slaves. He was rich but nowhere near as rich as he thought he would be because no one knew of the bad deals.

      You Asked — “DNA Do you know about the ‘real DNA studies’ ?”

      My Response — (1998) DNA study revealed that male-line descendants of Eston Hemings (a son of Sally Hemings) and male-line descendants of Field Jefferson’s father (who was Thomas Jefferson’s grandfather), shared the same Y-chromosome haplotype. This is common knowledge now.

      President Thomas Jefferson: A Pedophile Rapist did not get consent from a 14-year-old slave girl to have sex in his basement. Old newspapers didn’t accuse Thomas Jefferson of rape and neither do schools telling his history now. They just state she was his mistress. Since she was 14 and a slave we know it was rape.

      Unless you think a 14-year-old slave girl is in a position to give consent to an old white man that keeps her locked up in the basement of a barn house.

    • You Asked — “what ARE your SOURCES !”

      My Response:

      A considerable body of evidence stretching from 1802 to 1873 (and beyond) describes Thomas Jefferson as the father of Sally Hemings’s children. It was corroborated by the findings of the Y-chromosome haplotype DNA study conducted by Dr. Eugene Foster and published in the scientific journal Nature in November 1998. The DNA study did prove paternity of a Jefferson family member and corroborated the ample documentary and oral history evidence. Other evidence supports Thomas Jefferson’s paternity as well, including his presence at Monticello during Sally Hemings’s likely windows of conception, the names of Hemings’s surviving children, and the fact that all of her children were granted freedom – they were either allowed to leave the plantation, or legally emancipated in Jefferson’s will, a unique occurrence among Monticello’s enslaved families. The summary of the most important evidence proving Jefferson’s paternity is listed below.1

      Madison Hemings provided an account of his mother’s life that was published in an Ohio newspaper in 1873. The basic outline of Madison Hemings’s account, including his mother’s “treaty” with Jefferson and the freedom granted to him and his siblings, was well known to his community before it was published. His narrative is the most important extant evidence and much of the corroborating evidence supports the outline of his narrative.

      The Foster et al. (1998) DNA study revealed that male-line descendants of Eston Hemings (a son of Sally Hemings) and male-line descendants of Field Jefferson’s father (who was Thomas Jefferson’s grandfather), shared the same Y-chromosome haplotype. This demonstrates that Eston’s father was a Jefferson male. This result not only corroborates Madison’s account in the Pike County Republican, it definitively refutes the claims by Jefferson grandchildren, including Ellen Randolph Coolidge and her brother Thomas Jefferson Randolph, that either Peter or Samuel Carr (they could not agree on which one) was the father of Sally Hemings’s children.

      Madison Hemings was described by a U.S. census taker as the son of Thomas Jefferson in 1870.

      Israel Gillette Jefferson, formerly enslaved at Monticello, corroborated Madison Hemings’s claim in the same newspaper, referring to Sally Hemings as Thomas Jefferson’s “concubine.”

      Eston Hemings changed his racial identity to white and his surname to Jefferson after moving from Ohio to Wisconsin in 1852. Newspaper accounts in Chillicothe, Ohio, in 1887 and 1902 recalled that Eston resembled Thomas Jefferson.
      The two oldest surviving children of Sally Hemings, Beverly Hemings (a male) and Harriet Hemings, were both allowed to leave Monticello without pursuit and were described as “run away” in Jefferson’s inventory of enslaved families. In an 1858 letter to her husband Joseph Coolidge, Jefferson’s granddaughter, Ellen Wayles Randolph Coolidge, (while denying Jefferson’s paternity) described Sally Hemings’s children as “all fair and all set free at my grandfather’s death, or had been suffered to absent themselves permanently before he died.”

      Jefferson’s records of his travels and the birthdays of Sally Hemings’s children reveal that he was present at Monticello during the estimated dates of conception for all six of Hemings’s documented offspring. Statistical modeling shows the likelihood of this coincidence for any other male (if we assume that Thomas Jefferson is not the father) as 1 percent, or 1 chance in 100 — strong evidence of
      Thomas Jefferson’s paternity.2
      Oral tradition connecting the Hemings and Jefferson families was transmitted among the descendants of both Madison Hemings and Eston Hemings over many generations. Madison Hemings calls Jefferson his “father” in his 1873 recollections, a fact repeated by his descendants. Eston Hemings’s descendants altered their family history to state that they were related to one of Thomas Jefferson’s relatives in order to hide Eston Hemings’s decision to change his racial identity when he moved to Wisconsin.

      Jefferson freed all four surviving Hemings children (in accordance with the terms of his negotiation with Sally Hemings, as reported by her son Madison). He did not grant freedom to any other enslaved nuclear family.

      The names of Sally Hemings’s four surviving children — William Beverly Hemings, Harriet Hemings, James Madison Hemings, and Thomas Eston Hemings — suggest family ties to Thomas Jefferson. Annette Gordon-Reed outlines these naming connections in her book, Thomas Jefferson & Sally Hemings: An American Controversy (1997). A man named William Beverly accompanied Jefferson’s father on an expedition through Virginia in 1746, and he was connected to Jefferson’s mother’s family by blood and marriage. There were multiple Harriets in the Randolph family, including a sister and a niece of Thomas Mann Randolph, Jefferson’s son-in-law. Madison Hemings was named at the request of Dolley Madison, whose husband, James Madison, was one of Jefferson’s close friends. Historian and biographer Fawn Brodie offered two possible explanations for Eston Hemings’s name: Eston was the birthplace of Jefferson’s maternal ancestor, William Randolph, in Yorkshire, England. Thomas Eston Randolph was also a first cousin of Jefferson; Jefferson described their two families as being “almost as one.”3Furthermore, it was convention for Jefferson to be involved in the naming of family members. His children with Martha Jefferson were given the names of his sisters and mother, and he personally named each of his grandchildren

  2. “I am a real Christian, that is to say, a disciple of the doctrines of Jesus.”
    – Jefferson –

    For Jefferson, it was the moral message of Jesus, not claims of his birth, death and resurrection, that lay at the center of the Christian faith.
