They Were Not Gods

070D62D7-B273-497C-9AA7-FC3C154B5F8FSamantha Bee is a very funny woman and she showed this great, entertaining, and informative video on her show, Full Frontal with Samantha Bee, last night.

Many Americans, particularly those on the conservative/Republican side, consider our Founding Fathers to be almost god-like. But they were actually just a bunch of old, white, 18th century, slave-owning, misogynist men. Not gods, just men. Very smart, somewhat prescient men, but men nonetheless.

What I liked about this video is that it humanizes these men and demonstrates that they were not infallible. And they were not gods.

I think it’s worth four minutes of your time. Let me know what you think.

      True, not all of them. But many of them did.
