AOC: “This is pretty consistent with the Republican base. Whether it is trying to fight teaching basic history around racism, the role of racism in U.S. history. You know there is a direct through line from that to denying Juneteenth.” pic.twitter.com/oMZoMIbwHJ— The Hill (@thehill) June 17, 2021
Who gives a shit what voters think?
We’re just going to start rewriting the calendar anyway and create a fake federal holiday for Black Lives Matter which only 35% of the country wants.
Note: Juneteenth will replace July the 4th and end up being yet another occasion to denounce our ancestors for their “racism.” AOC is already doing it.
