And Thomas Jefferson raped slaves. How many on the right name him as one of the greatest Americans? Do his views on slavery and other atrocities incident to the time period devalue his contributions to progress? I would suspect that conservatives would say no on Thomas Jefferson, but would then go on to condemn Margaret Sanger for her racist "views" (even though her apparent racism didn't lead to the ownership or sexual assault of black individuals had her hands).
