Maxine Waters And Cori Bush Trash Talk America, The Founding Fathers And The Declaration Of Independence

Maxine Waters and Cori Bush thrashed America and freedom on independence day, according to The Daily Wire.

“July 4th… & so, the Declaration of Independence says all men are created equal. Equal to what? What men? Only white men? Isn’t it something that they wrote this in 1776 when African Americans were enslaved? They weren’t thinking about us then, but we’re thinking about us now!” Waters said on Twitter.

‘Further, the Dec. of Ind. says we hold these truths to be “self-evident”… yet: – 17 states have enacted voter suppression laws – Supreme Court gutted Sec. 5 of the Voting Rights Act – George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Michael Brown, Sandra Bland, Tamir Rice Need I say more? #July4″

“When they say that the 4th of July is about American freedom, remember this: the freedom they’re referring to is for white people,” Bush said on Twitter.

“This land is stolen land and Black people still aren’t free.”

“245 years ago today, leaders representing 13 British colonies signed a document to declare independence.”

“It says ‘that all men are created equal’ — but women, enslaved people, Indigenous people and many others were not held as equal at the time.”

“The document also includes a racist slur against Indigenous Americans. Author David Treuer, who is Ojibwe, says there is a lot of diversity of opinion and thought among Native Americans — a community of more than 5 million people — about the document’s words.”

“We remain committed to forcing this country to live up to its own stated ideals.”

From The Daily Wire:

Waters and Bush echoed National Public Radio (NPR), who also condemned the nation’s founding document on Independence Day for the language the Founding Fathers used to describe American Indians. As The Daily Wire reported:

National Public Radio (NPR) denounced the Declaration of Independence on the Fourth of July because of terms it deemed offensive.

NPR continued to tweet the entire text of the Declaration, but also inserted an “editor’s note” to warn readers that the Founding Fathers used a “racist slur” when they accused King George III of endeavoring “to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages, whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.”

The Declaration of Independence and the nation’s other founding documents were recently found to demonstrate “structural racism,” according to a task force on racism at the National Archives, where the original documents are housed in Washington, D.C.
