Yesterday, Speaker Pelosi gave the family of George Floyd, who never served in the US military, a folded U.S. flag, enraging families across America. Many families of veterans commented about her political stunt, demanding that the presentation of the folded U.S. flag is only reserved for the military.

Today, in yet another instance of embarrassing pandering for votes, Hillary Clinton’s former running mate, Senator Tim Kaine (D-VA), stood on the Senate floor and blasted police officers, and spoke about dismantling racism. Kaine took the pandering for black votes way too far when he boldly declared, “The United States didn’t inherit slavery from anybody. We created it.”

“In my lifetime, we have finally stopped some of those practices,” Kaine said.

We’ve “finally stopped some of those practices?”


Senator Kaine was given a much-needed history lesson by more than one person on Twitter.


Conservative author and journalist Jason Mattera reminded Kaine that slavery existed on every inhabited continent for thousands of years.” Mattera explained, “Europeans enslaved non-Europeans and vice versa. The slave trade across the Atlantic was made possible because African chieftains enslaved and sold their own people.”

Daily Caller editor Virginia Kruta wrecked Senator Kaine with one fact:

Slavery dates back to 3500 BC and was institutionalized in the Code of Hammurabi in 1860 BC.

Kruta compared Tim Kaine’s exaggerated and unfounded claim to the “Al Gore school of historical inventions.”

Curt Mills explained to Senator Kaine: “as has been widely noted, African slavery in the Americas began in 1619… so, the United States — founded in 1776 — did not simply “create” it. try again”
