Tim Kaine continues to make stupid choices
The above link is the 08/20/2017 Breitbart story by Pam Key.
I am shocked and dismayed. Even from a politician who has made as many bad choices as Kaine, this is a Duesey. Tim Kaine is now on record wanting to take down a statue of General Lee in an area that makes tourism dollars from history buffs and replacing it with a statue of Pocahontas.
Pocahontas was a girl, 9 or 10 yrs old, kidnapped from her family like a scene from Boko Haram's playbook. This poor child was repeatedly raped and eventually impregnated by her captors. As a token symbol of an alliance, John Rolfe married the child, still not 18 and converted her to Christianity and changed her name to Rebecca. Despite her use to Rolfe, she was never allowed to see her family again. Rolfe got what he wanted in the bargain and was taught how to cure tobacco by her tribe.
Because the cured tobacco was so valuable, her native nations lands were stolen and the tribe suffered greatly at the hands of the invading Europeans.So what happened to our poor child after the kidnapping, rape, and forced marriage? She was made into an English side show to keep money flowing to those conquering the colonies. Once she realized she was being used to continue the persecution of her people it is widely believed she was murdered for speaking out.
Now Timmy, that is certainly a history to be proud of. Raise that monument to your personal ignorance and lack of sensitivity.
