[Ed. – There is no hope for the country as long as Democrats vote haters and grievance mongers into positions of power within the government.]
Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) and Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) each spent part of their Fourth of July holiday trashing the Declaration of Independence as “sexist” and “racist.”
The freshman congresswomen both promoted a Salon article titled “Fourth of July’s ugly truth exposed: The Declaration of Independence is sexist, racist, prejudiced” through their Twitter accounts.
Pressley created a Twitter thread when promoting the article.
“The impact of the prejudices, biases & contradictions codified by our founding fathers is still felt today. We continue to struggle as a nation to embrace our full history, one that includes family separation of black families at the auction block & today of migrants at camps,” she tweeted.
She continued, “A country that has yet to realize it’s full promise for every person that calls it home & indeed makes it great, & yet it is a free country, one where I can resist, offer dissenting & critical opinion & challenge with bold activist leadership.”
