Beck: I would like to propose that the president is exactly right when he said, “slaves sitting around the campfire didn’t know when slavery was going to end, but they knew that it would. And it took a long time to end slavery.” Yes it did. But, it also took a long time to start slavery. And it started small. And it started with seemingly innocent ideas. And then a little court order here and a court order there, and a little more regulation here and a little more regulation there. And before we knew it, America had slavery. It didn’t come over in a ship to begin with as an evil slave trade. The government began to regulate things because the people needed answers, they needed solutions. It started in a courtroom and then it went to the legislatures. That’s how slavery began. And it took a long time to enslave an entire race of people, and to convince another race of people that they were somehow or another less than them. But it can be done. I would ask you to decide: Are we freeing slaves? Or are we creating slaves? That’s a question that must be answered.

Wow. Which revisionist history camp did he go to?

Slavery in the New World preceded the founding of America.
