Pop Superstar Slams American Founders, Claims ‘America Built By Men Who Believed In And Benefited From Racism’

Pop superstar Justin Timberlake blasted America’s founding father, declaring that ‘America’ was ‘built by men men who believed in and benefited from slavery.’ As The Daily Wire reports:

Music icon Justin Timberlake weighed into the current national debate on racial justice in a social media post Monday, arguing for the removal of Confederate monuments and providing his theory on why protests of racism in America are interpreted as “protesting America itself.”

On Monday, the world-famous singer shared a post from the ACLU about former Confederate General Nathan Bedford Forrest in which he called for the removal of all Confederate monuments.

“When we protest racism in America, people think we are protesting America itself. Why is that the reaction? Because America was built by men who believed in and benefitted from racism. Plain and simple. If we plan to move forward, these confederate monuments must come down,” he tweeted.

Timberlake’s post on American white supremacy comes several weeks after he declared that “black people in America are not safe.”

The narrative Timberlake is parroting, that America is an irredeemably racist country, has become a popular talking point on the far-left. A talking point which has been used to justify the toppling and vandalizing of numerous statues of America’s founders.

Who gives a damn what Justin Timberlake thinks. Suddenly he’s a scholar of American history? Shut up and go back to doing what gave you your millions.

That’s his whole problem, he is rich, pays someone to do his stuff for him just like a slave would if they were still legit and he would have one..what’s the difference. Now that is an elite and nowadays color not an issue. BTW..therewere white slaves in those too and no one says a thing about those hard working guys either!

Really! He has remarkable hindsight I guess. Or maybe he doesn’t. Justin, read the history books. Then put their lives in the context of those times. Maybe you won’t be so critical after you have some understanding of history. Which most of you people in entertainment don’t know about and don’t bother to learn. Speaking for myself, I don’t give a tinkers damn about your opinion.

My question for him is simple..some of us are proud of our heritage and for you if you do not like it then you have the freedom to leave. This freedom was fought for by these same men and women you are running your mouth about. So do all of us a favor and get the hell out or just shut up and enjoy what we have because of them and yes me. A disgusted disabled veteran tired of idiots like you running your mouth.

Yes your People Justin created the cycle of Slavery, and just in case you weren’t aware of the Fact that Your Party was also the Ones who MADE UP the KKK!

Nathan Bedford Forrest was one of the two founders of the Democrat Party, along with Andrew Jackson. The Democrats are indeed very racists from their early days thru today.

The men who founded this country almost 250 years ago were the norm for their time. But they rose above the norm and created a Republic that has always been a shining example of freedom and liberty. They wanted to abolish slavery from the start but knew they couldn’t hold the fragile union of very different States together if they did. They knew the matter would take time to rectify, and 80 years later it was. Unless you count the 155 years the DemoCRAP’s have spent trying to put Blacks back in chains!! Study History people!! DemoCRAP’s seceded over slavery, created the KKK when they lost! They were Jim Crow!! They fought Civil Rights tooth and nail, filibustering the 1964 Bill for 87 days on the floor of the Senate, led by KKK Grand Klegle Senator Byrd!! And they’re worse today, backing the Anti-FA Fascists and BLM Marxists, using race as a WEAPON!! The country would have been wise to abolish the DemoCRAP Party after the Civil War. To them the war never ended! And we have to wake up to that fact before we lose our Republic!!

Why is it so many human beings cannot see past their own nose??!! One does not judge anyone of even 100 years ago by the standards that are in place today. He cannot even begin to imagine a different time, place, ethical issues, etc. And another thing – the same that folks loath Trump for his language at times, especially if he has been attacked, and for how he has lived out his personal life. They do not watch what he has done. that he will personally step in if he hears or reads about an injustice. I would guess more unjustly jailed Americans have been brought home (without trading terrorists and billions of dollars) from unfriendly countries, and more unjustly imprisoned folks set free right here in this country than any other president, maybe ever!! Good economy, fewer American troops in harms way abroad and still the entire Middle East is not on fire with all of the ISIS satanic outlaws raping, beheading, selling into “slavery”, etc. He has managed not to create a scandal in his personal life so far, unlike Clinton who couldn’t keep his zipper up for a month. I wish Americans would rise above themselves and give this man a break and the credit for what he has accomplished!! Ignore the tweets which the liberal press reports on as if there was nothing else going on in the world at any time!! Martin Luther King had some warts in his personal life, but what he accomplished for good was simply spectacular and heroic!!

Amazing how these celebrities know so little about our history, yet claim some higher ground of expertise. Apparently, this jerk never knew that Samuel Adams, who was not a slaveowner, was one of the most important contributors to our rise to independence before he became a beer.

This is what happens when someone has no knowledge of American History. Countless people have given their lives to keep us free and fought for our way of life. This life is here for all of us, no matter what race we are. The Democrats, which idiot Timberlake apparently favors, wants to tear down our country. Does he think that the left’s communist platform will leave him alone?
No it will not. He will pay just like the rest of us. They will come for his possessions, just like the rest of us. He thinks he and his cronies will be safe. But no, because they will hate them just like us. Maybe more because they are rich and those riches will be for the taking.
I have no use for a person who has taken all America has given them and is not proud and grateful to be an American. Many people in the world would be happy to take their place. I say if you don’t love America, leave America. We won’t miss you.

Timberlake another twit who can’t think for himself. But than he probably didn’t finish high school and knows nothing of history. Besides slavery ended 150yrs ago. Find me a slave alive today and maybe just maybe America will apologize, but until than, no apology fore coming. Now go back to your Hispanic slave that cleans your pool and house and makes your food and drinks, while you pay them cheaply because there illegal.

Just one more example of a grown up individual who made it all the way through an “education” without learning a damned thing about our country, our founding, our founding fathers, our magnificent form of government or what makes the country exceptional. In other words, he is an idiot and should keep his mouth shut, so people wouldn’t learn about his poor education.

yes Timberlake is right our fore fathers had slaves. It was the time back then to own slaves and built America with slave labor. Today we build America with paid labor both domestic and foreign. It is time, past time, for these wealthy hollywood stars and politicians, to get over the slavery thing. Why do you and most wealthy politicians have walls around your houses? Yet you do not want to see America protected by a wall at our borders. Most countries have walls or fences to protect them against foreign enemies. Removing statues is not going to stop racism. It will remove the history of America and make America a socialist county with not past history. Is that what you want Justin, and the other socialists? You can sing but you are not a true American. Forget slavery that is another topic and you are trying to blend slavery with with removing history. Why stop there, why not remove all of Martin Luther Kings names and statues from American history. It is not fair to have one side of the coin. Martin LUTHER kING IS PART OF HISTORY and so is slavery, the Civil war and the generals from both the north and south who fought in the Civil war. To eliminate all of this is to turn America into a socialist country. This is the first step in government before turning to communism. Justin you are not very patriotic, you are a socialist.

Justin Timberlake’s problem is that he can’t find anything about America to criticize that’s newer than the Civil War.

Justin, slavery was legal back then and the first American slave owner was BLACK. The United States if the ONLY nation ever to fight a war to end slavery.

Today some countries still practice slavery. Why don’t you go after them? DUH!
