Jean-Jacques Dessalines:

* Gained a reputation for his "take no prisoners" policy, and for burning homes and entire villages to the ground (Just like the Viking Raiders from Scandinavia).

* Backstabbed Toussaint Louverture, the leader of the Haitian Revolution, and was responsible for his arrest (Just like Judas, the Apostle who betrayed Jesus to his enemies for 30 pieces of silver).

* Named himself Governor-General-for-life of Haiti and served in that role until 22 September 1804, when he proclaimed himself Emperor of Haiti (Ala François Duvalier).

* Between February and April 1804, he had the white Haitian minority killed by ordering the 1804 Haiti Massacre (Ala Rafael Trujillo, the dictator that ordered the massacre of Haitians in neighboring Dominican Republic).

Dessalines declared Haiti an all-black nation and forbade whites from owning property or land there (Ala Robert Mugabe in Zimbabwe, who turned that country from the breast-basket of Africa into an impoverished nation).

* Enforced a harsh regimen of plantation labor and demanded that all blacks work either as soldiers to protect the nation or as laborers on the plantations (he basically enslaved Haitians once again).

Those were the actions of Jean-Jacques Dessalines, a racist, backstabber, and mass murderer, that some here are trying to lionize and pass as a hero and savior.

"We are Dessalines"?

No thanks, I'll pass!
