The Institute on the Constitution Posts Another Incorrect Quote Attribution – This Time They Get Thomas Paine Wrong

Paine IOTC False Quote

The Institute on the Constitution claims to be an educational outreach of Michael Peroutka's law firm. Miseducational outreach would be a better term. They claim to teach about the founders but they often are sloppy and attribute things to the founders they didn't say.Once, they claimed Jefferson said something he didn't say and then they botched George Washington as well.  Now, the target of false quotation is Thomas Paine.Paine never said it; it most likely originated with Edward Ab … [Read more...]

Tony Evans Says African-American Families Were “A Lot Stronger” During Slavery
