‘We Are Teaching Them A Lie’ Louisiana Democrat Says Kids Shouldn’t Recite Declaration Of Independence Because It’s Racist
A Louisiana Democrat legislator says students should not recite the Declaration of Independence because it was written when slavery still existed.
“All men are not created equal,” the Gentle Lady from Shreveport ranted. “We’re teaching them a lie.”
“When I think back in 1776 July 4th – African Americans were slaves and for you to bring a bill to request that our children will recite the Declaration – I think it’s a little bit unfair to us to ask those children to recite something that is not true,” she said.
Next thing you know the Romans will be racists! 🙂
Democrat Louisiana lawmaker Barbara Norton argued against a bill that would require fourth through sixth graders to recite a part of the founding document. Norton, who is black, says she fought the bill because the Declaration of Independence was written when blacks were not free, Fox News reports.
So was the Emancipation Proclamation, you Liberal Twat!
“For the Declaration of Independence only Caucasians (were) free, and for you to bring a bill to require that our children will recite the Declaration of Independence, I think it’s a little bit unfair,” Norton said on the floor of the Louisiana House.
Norton went on to say the Declaration was not even “validated” and that the bill was “unfair.” Republican Rep. Valarie Hodges, who presented the bill, shelved it after Norton’s comments.
So the liberal got what she wanted. She yelled “racism” and everyone ran for cover.
Democrats don’t believe we should teach young Americans that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights. And they sure don’t want them to pursue happiness.
That, boys and girls, is what we call a self-evident truth.
Because you didn’t build that. The Government did. Government is your God. Government brings happiness and joy to all, after all.
