What we learned in school and from the media was a lie.
I checked and of the 180 1 star reviews 8 of them are verified purchases. I think that says a lot.
Such is the case with David Barton's latest work: "The Jefferson Lies" in which he completely debunks the lies that the last few generations have been taught in American "education".
Mr. Barton explodes the deliberate lies invented by the left in academia as well as showing the tools used to distort, change or simply replace history with lies made of whole cloth such as my personal favorite "Deconstructionism. The lies David Barton takes on are: Jefferson fathered a child by slave Sally Hemmings, Jefferson founded a purely secular university, Jefferson wrote an essentially atheist Bible, jefferson was a racist, Jefferson advocated a secular government and public square (the old "separation of church and state" lie), and that Jefferson hated the clergy and was an atheist.
The author recounts the momentous announcement that DNA evidence "proved" Jefferson fathered children by Sally Hemmings, hailed by the left, while showing the DNA testing actually only proved that one of twenty-seven Jefferson males could have fathered a child by her. The child most researchers accused Jefferson of fathering showed no genetic link to any Jefferson male - period!
Mr. Barton shows how the academic left lies through their teeth by quoting snippets of Jefferson's writings while the author reproduces them, in many cases, in their entirety to show how Jefferson's words were taken out of context or simply twisted.Read more ›
