A Democratic lawmaker and several left-wing figures used July 4 to share controversial statements or denigrate the founding of the United States.

Democratic Representative Cori Bush, D-Mo, tweeted “When they say July 4th is about American freedom, remember this: the freedom they refer to is for whites. This land is stolen land and blacks are still not free.”

NY TIMES STRIKED BY CRITICS, LEGAL FOR SUGGESTING AMERICAN FLAG IS NOW “ALIENATE TO SOME”: “TASTING”

Some agreed with Bush’s comments, such as congressional candidate Shahid Buttar. He replied to his tweet saying “Speak up, @CoriBush! It’s almost like our whole country has been brainwashed to ignore our history – and how its worst elements continue today – despite our self-righteous rhetoric.”

The former MSNBC presenter Touré was much more vocal, Tweeter “F – k Independence Day. Not only were we not free, but the only reason the colonies wanted independence was because Britain was getting ready to end slavery. Why would black people celebrate- they one day so absorbed in our slavery? “

He also tweeted his own opinion piece for The Grio website titled “F – k Fourth of July: The Only Independence Day I Recognize Is Juneteenth”.

Actress Alyssa Milano also denigrated July 4 in sharing a TikTok video of herself reading “Recall: America was founded on the unfair treatment of Native Americans, Africans and other people of color.”

News organizations also used the holiday to criticize the United States and its history.

NPR tweeted a thread from the original Declaration of Independence, claiming it to be a “document with deep-seated flaws and hypocrisies”. He also immediately noticed that the document “says” that all men are created equal “- but women, slaves, indigenous peoples and many others were not considered equal at the time.”

The Washington Post took it a step further by running several opinion pieces that criticize the holiday or use it for political partisanship. These pieces included “The fourth is for complainants, “”Independence Day 2021 is an auspicious occasion to celebrate America’s liberation from Trump, “and a perspective piece titled”July 4 is the independence day of two countries. But for one it’s hollow. “

This followed the New York Times opinion piece that suggested the American flag was becoming a symbol of division. In the article titled “A symbol of unity of July 4th that can no longer unite”.

“Today, hoisting the American flag in the back of a pickup truck or over a lawn is increasingly seen as a clue, though imperfect, of a person’s political affiliation in a deeply divided nation, ”the article reads.
