For all the ignorant people out there…

I dislike ignorant people. I used the Ben Franklin quote at the top of my blog to illustrate a point on, and someone threw this one back: “Jews are Asiatics, are a menace to this country if permitted entrance, and should be excluded by this Constitutional Convention.”

Ben Franklin never said anything like that.

The quote is false and was fabricated within the white supremecy movement in the 20th century. Click the title to link to a rabbi’s sermon in which the entire thing is dismantled.

Do not believe everything you find on the Internet.
