We need men of that caliber again. Jefferson Davis was a hero and a great American.
The caliber of men who were in favor of the slave trade, and said things like this?

"I have said that I would prefer to leave the subject of the importation of African slaves to the States respectively; but, viewing it as utterly impracticable to obtain the repeal of the act of 1818, so as to reopen the African slave-trade, it is perhaps needless to speak of the case which would arise in such contingency. Yet, as my purpose if the freest interchange of opinions, I will say that in such event, the State being left free from any Congressional intervention on the subject, my policy would be to maintain the existing law of Mississippi, which was designed, and would no doubt be effective, to prevent the importation of Africans into the limits of our State. Let no one, however, suppose that this indicates any coincidence of opinion with those who prate of the inhumanity and sinfulness of the trade. No consequences which would justify such denunciation can flow from the transfer of a slave from a savage to a Christian master. It is not the interest of the African, but of Mississippi, which dictates my conclusion. Her place in history, her rank among the States, her power to maintain constitutional and natural rights, depend upon her people - the free, intelligent, high-minded sons of the governing race."

Also, Jefferson Davis was a traitor, which kind of wrecks the whole "great American" theory.
Are you bi-polar or something? He wanted to keep the ban on importing Africans that our hallowed Founding Fathers decreed. You just quoted it.

An no he wasn’t a traitor. Which is why he lived out his days a free man...respected and honored. Which is is why the United Stares government issued stamps and coins to honor him. Which is why his stature stands in the hall of the US Capital today.
Not one Confederate was ever tried as a traitor.
Fuk that coward ass drag queen and anyone who tries to tell me he wasn't a traitor...including yo bitch ass...View attachment 318626
Union soldiers who were present at the capture debunked that. Newspapermen lied back then too.
His coward ass tried to escape to England or any other country that would take his bitch ass.....like I said..fuck him and you...


"A certain amount of controversy surrounds his capture, as Davis was wearing his wife’s black shawl when the Union troops cornered him. The Northern press ridiculed him as a coward, alleging that he had disguised himself as a woman in an ill-fated attempt to escape. However, Davis, and especially his wife, Varina, maintained that he was ill and that Varina had lent him her shawl to keep his health up during their difficult journey. "



I bet your stupid ass would be one of those Germans upset about how Hitler was characterized, when he killed himself like a coward while hiding in a bunker

He was a piece of shit. "Was" being the key word there. His movement was obliterated even worse than his shit-stained reputation.
