Fox News contributor called ‘complete moron’ for falsely saying US was first to end slavery
Fox News contributor Katie Pavlich attempted to counter Senator Elizabeth Warren’s call to discuss the injustices of slavery, and its lasting systemic impact on generations of African-Americans, by claiming that the United States does not get “enough credit” for ending slavery.
While discussing reparations to descendents of enslaved people on Fox News’ “Outnumbered” on Tuesday, Ms Pavlich claimed that the US was the first country to abolish slavery.
“They keep blaming America for the sin of slavery but the truth is, throughout human history, slavery existed, and America came along as the first country to end it within 150 years,” she said. “And we get no credit for that to move forward and try to make good on that.”
That is simply not true.
There are several countries who abolished slavery long before the US did in 1858 with the 13th Amendment. Some of those countries include Spain in 1811, Sweden in 1813, the Netherlands 1814, the United Kingdom in 1833, Denmark in 1836, France in 1848, and Portugal in 1858.
Fox News! #1 in Fake News.
