Rioters are tearing down statues of American heroes, INCLUDING Thomas Jefferson, as the President predicted. Why should Jefferson be remembered? This video explains.

There’s pretty substantial evidence to suggest that Thomas Jefferson did not have a relation with Sally. Sally had plenty of opportunities to escape overseas and they believe it was Thomas Jefferson’s relative in the relationship

The only one of Sally's children shown to have Jefferson DNA was her latest child, whom she had when she was about 18. Nevermind that no one gave a fig about the magical number "18" until very very recently in human history. Also most slaves back then didn't even have their own room.

Hypocritical slave owner. He recognised it was wrong, and still arranged for his slaves to be sold to pay his debts when he died. He's not to be revered.

Progressives sure liked Jefferson enough to scream, "Separation of Church and state," enough times until our society coined terms like "baby mommy" and "baby daddy," vulgarity became the norm, kids graduated high school not knowing right from wrong or how to live, and government replaced God's and the Church's role in society. I suppose since Jefferson has served their purpose, progressives are discarding him like they will to anyone else who is no longer useful to their acquisition of more power. Those who will not be governed by God will be ruled by tyrants. - William Penn

There has to be some recognition of his inability to consider black people as human beings. I understand that he has done much for the early development of the country, but the fact that he conceived and enslaved his own children is monstrous and not a reason his statue should remain. That was an odd entry btw. There should be a way to celebrate his contribution but also shun his ownership of black slaves.

Thomas Jefferson did a lot to fight slavery. He stopped the import of new slaves to Virginia, then to the US as a whole, and drafted the Northwest Ordinance which banned slavery in new US territories. It's bizarre he had slaves himself, but he called slavery "a cruel war against human nature itself, violating its most sacred rights of life and liberty" among many other things. Also there is very little evidence Thomas fathered Sally's children, in fact DNA proves at least one of her children was not his. Another person who claimed to be TJ's descendants refused to take the DNA test. Only Eston Hemmings (Sally's final child) is known to have Jefferson DNA, which could have been from any one in his family.

Yes, Thomas Jefferson sure did a lot. However, "Among America's founders only George Washington played a more crucial role" ... WHAT!?!? So, BENJAMIN FRANKLIN the man responsible for the phrase "self-evident," who persuaded the young hothead, Jefferson to rewrite the Declaration of Independence, the man who advocated the Great Compromise that got the US Constitution through the Continental Congress, the man who negotiated the alliance with France, and the peace with the United Kingdom, whose signature is on ALL FOUR of our Founding Documents (Declaration of Independence, the Alliance with France, the Peace Treaty with Britain, the Constitution) gets less credit than Jefferson. Typical Jeffersonian tripe. Without Franklin's contributions, there wouldn't have been a United States for Jefferson to be a president of!

Among American founders, only George Washington played a bigger role. Nope... sorry for Prager U to say that is pretty sad. You got about 250 founding fathers... and you can't place a 1, 2, 3...etc. There are a top 10 or 20... but no 1, 2, 3. In fact, the founding fathers of that time attribute Benjamin Rush as one of thee top players as founders. But you never hear about him today.

As far as Sally Hemmings is concerned, it was most probably his brother who slept with her. When asked why he didn't squash rumours that were swirling around that he (Thomas Jefferson) was Sally Hemmings' lover, Jefferson said that he had many enemies and if he put that rumor to rest another rumor would take its place.

I typically like what PragerU puts out, but several of these "who was" videos are awful. I love the concept but this is a very weak execution. These videos are prefaced with "Here are some facts about ____ that remind us why his statue *should* *remain* ." And then continue to give commonly known achievements without any extrapolation as to exactly how revolutionary or great they really were. Then follow it with some not so flattering facts, such as he fathered illegitimate children and let them be enslaved. Then it just ends, like it was some great defense of the man. Who exactly is this convincing?

During the Thomas Jefferson presidency, he signed into law a band on the importation of slaves into the USA. The Federal government did not have the authority to end slavery in the states. It did however have constitutional authority over the external borders of the USA. The law was proposed in Congress in 1805 and finally passed both houses of Congress on March 2, 1807. President Thomas Jefferson signed it into law on March 3, 1807 during his 2nd term. Effective on January 1, 1808, the importation of slaves to the United States was banned! This disconnected the USA from the international slave trade. I consider the statement to the world that "All men are created equal" makes The Declaration of Independence one of the most powerful civil rights documents in existence, certainly at the time, but into the future. As Abrham Lincoln said; “All Honor to Jefferson - to the man who, in the concrete struggle for national independence by a single people, had the coolness, forecast, and capacity to introduce into a merely revolutionary document, an abstract truth, applicable to all men and at all times.” In VA, where Thomas Jefferson and George Washington lived, the laws made it either illegal or very expensive to release slaves. He is an example of text from the laws of VA in early America: " It shall be lawful for any person, by his or her last will and testament, or by any other instrument in writing under his or her hand and seal . . . to emancipate and set free his or her slaves . . . Provided, also, that all slaves so emancipated, not being . . . of sound mind and body, or being above the age of forty-five years, or being males under the age of twenty one, or females under the age of eighteen years, shall respectively be supported and maintained by the person so liberating them, or by his or her estate. " The stories that you keep seeing online (Often with no comment section below) about Thomas Jefferson fathering Sally Heming's 6 children is what I call America's oldest fake news story because it is not factually proven. It is not proven, but they still report it. The DNA evidence available shows that Thomas Jefferson DID NOT father Sally Hemings "children". Only Sally's last born child Eston has the same Y chromosome in his family line that the Jefferson family has. This Y chromosome is not exclusive to the Jefferson family either. Sally was 35 when Eston was born. Thomas was in his mid 60s. Studying the facts, circumstantial evidence points more strongly to Thomas's younger brother Randy Jefferson, who partied with the slaves on the Jefferson property. Numerous Jefferson males either lived at or regularly visited Jefferson's home. All known information about this are in these two books; The Jefferson - Hemings Controversy A Report of the Scholar's Commission by Robert F Turner and another book titled The Jefferson- Hemings Myth An American Travesty , which tells of the intentional spin of the results by news outlets to "report" that it proved that Thomas Jefferson was the father and the repeated act by other News outlets to just copy and print the same story without fact checks while some original reports were corrected on newspaper back pages weeks later.

I’ve been watching this video series, and all these “statue tippers” should do their dang research FIRST before they start jumping the gun with a tear-down “revolution.” I’m APPALLED that their “freedom of speech”and “pursuit of happiness” is the destruction of America and its MANY founders who’ve done incredible work for us in history. Does everyone have skeletons in their closet, secret sins, hidden wrongs? Sure, probably why it wasn’t completely made public like what we’re doing today...but does it encompass and define their life? NO! Y’all need to STOP focusing on the mistakes of man and redirect your foolish thinking to their accomplishments for our country, yours and mine. This act of retaliation is how my four-year-old child acts when he can’t get his way...newsflash, y’all need anger management!

...but he owned slaves. It's not preferable that pieces of historic art should be outright destroyed -- ideally they'd be wheeled off to a museum somewhere -- but if the character depicted _owned slaves_ then it's not unreasonable for people to take down a statue standing in public by force if all other methods of peaceful removal have failed. (Not trying to sound like an SJW.)

@Art Irony Never heard any conservative say that. And that’s not the point anyway. Just study Jefferson, his anti-slavery clause in the Declaration, his comments condemning slavery, him managing to prohibit slavery in newly acquired territories, him ending the African slave trade. The Founders are what led to the abolition of slavery in the USA by expressing Enlightenment principles in a practical form. They influenced the French and British as well. That doesn’t mean they were perfect or some kind of gods, but diminishing them by pointing out the fact FEW of them were slaveholders is just ignorant.

Largely unknown fact: When Thomas Jefferson made the Louisiana Purchase his original intent was to keep only New Orleans (to provide safe passage for trade up the Mississippi and reduce the calls for secession from the territories bordering the river), and to give the rest to the Native Americans. So there would be no "white" expansion west of the Mississippi.

Only reason the statues are being ripped down is because of retarded millennials and gen z, who are indoctrinated/brainwashed by the media, celebrities, and their college professors!

What PragerU failed to mention in this video is that the group that torn down the Jefferson statue were Extreme Right Wing Neo-Nazis! Also PragerU makes the it look like there was more than one statue of Thomas Jefferson torn down! When the fact is that the News coverage PragerU shows is the only incident and that News segment wasn't recent, it aired years ago!! This video is just another way PragerU is spinning the facts to Support their personal agenda!!!

New "follow the money" reports are showing CHINA has been regularly donating money to prominate American College Instituions for 20+ years. These funds have been hidden in the financials, but will continue to come to light as investigations continue. Check the White House Government page.

Sally Hemmings was his slave with whom he had several out of wedlock children. He cut out all references to miracles in his Bible as he was a Deist and didn't believe in an Almighty God. He wrote the letter on which the separation of church and state cases are based as this concept is not in the Declaration nor in the Constitution.
