Senator Tom Cotton describes slavery as a ’necessary evil’

Sen. Tom Cotton described slavery as a ’necessary evil’ and slammed an initiative by the New York Times which seeks to make slavery the focal point of American history being taught in schools. Senator Cotton described slavery as a necessary evil upon which the ’union was built’. ’But the union was built in a way, as Lincoln said, to put slavery on the course to its ultimate extinction’, he said.

Cotton paraphrases the founding fathers on the necessity of slavery and then talks about how teaching real history would be a blow to freedom and equality, "a racially divisive, revisionist account of history that denies the noble principles of freedom and equality on which our nation was founded. Not a single cent of federal funding should go to indoctrinate young Americans with this left-wing garbage." It's too bad that Senator Cotton didn't attend any critical thinking classes as a young boy.
