Every year the Democrats in Virginia (and many other states) have an annual fundraiser known as the Jefferson-Jackson Dinner. But that’s no longer working for them because both Presidents are not worthy of such an honor. Democrat President Thomas Jefferson was a founding father of our nation having written the Declaration of Independence. He also wrote the Statute of Virginia for religious freedom, and he designed and built the University of Virginia. No matter because Jefferson owned slaves and that’s enough for Democrats to remove him from our history and certainly from their big fundraiser.
Andrew Jackson, a Democrat and our 7th President, a statesman who served in both houses of Congress and fought for the common man. He was also a revered and respected Army General who lead troops in both the Revolutionary War and the War of 1812. No matter. He owned slaves so he’s no good in the eyes of Democrats.
In order to avoid celebrating any Democrat who could later be found to have erred in the eyes of the Democrats, their new annual fundraiser will be called the “Blue Commonwealth Gala” and will take place on June 16th, just days after the June 12th primary. The Chairman of the Democrat party of Virginia Susan Swecker said,
The Blue Commonwealth Gala will be a celebration of our party’s dedication to expanding opportunity for all Virginians. Building off our historic victories in the 2017 election, we are excited to rename our signature event as we work to make Virginia a stronger, fairer, and more prosperous Commonwealth.
