Excerpt from the journal of Charles PICKNEY of South CAROLI Proceedings of Constitutional convention of 1789, regarding MENT of Benjamin Franklin at the convention, concerning JEW
There is great danger for the United States of America. This great danger is the JEW Gentlemen, in whichever land the Jews have settled, they have repressed the moral level and lowered the degree of commercial honesty. They have remained apart unassimilated-oppressed, they attempt to strangle the nation financially as in case of Portugal and Spain.
For more than seventeen hundred years they have lamented their sorrowful fate, namely, that they have been driven out of their Mother land, but, Gentlemen, if the civilized world of today should give them back Palestine and their property, they would immediately in pressing reasons for not returning there. Why?. Because they are vampires, and vampires cannot live among them selves. They must live among Christians and others, who do not belong to their race.
If they are not exclude from the United States by the Constitution within less than one hundred years, they will stream into this country in such numbers that they will rule and destroy us and change our form of Government for which we Americans shed our blood are not exceed within two hundreds years, or children will be working in the fields to food the Jews, while they remain in the counting house, gleefully, rubbing their land.
I warn you Gentlemen: If you do not exclude the Jews forever your children and your children will curse you in your grave. Their ideas are not those of Americans even when Jews have lived among us for ten generations. The leopard cannot chance this spots. The Jews are a danger to this land and if they are allowed to enter they imperil out institutions. They should be excluded by the Constitution.
