"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsel or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands of those who feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you. May posterity forget that ye were our countrymen."

It's been done over, and over, and over and over again. They are a

Ignore them, they no longer deserve our consideration. May their chains
sit lightly upon them and may posterity forget that they were once a
part of us.
