I don’t know if the founding fathers can be called traitors… but I do know that the Confederates committed treason against this nation, yet many in the south claim to be ardent patriots, but still proudly fly the stars and bars, which is an affront to THIS nation.
Perhaps you could call early Americans traitors, but I’d argue that the nation they formed was a better one. I’d also say that the Confederate States were traitors to this nation, and their flag stands in direct oposition to everything THIS nation stands for. So I guess my point is that they should pick one… do they want to be Confederates, or do they want to be Americans? The two are mutually exclusive.
