It so often seems that liberals in America play with a deck of cards in which every card is the race card. Although the left also enjoys playing the gender card, the religion card, or the [insert minority group here] card, the race card is by far their favorite.
The vast majority of the country hoped and believed that when Barack Obama was elected president in 2008 that the far left would finally be forced to give up on their race baiting ways. Instead, the left doubled down on their race card strategy. Unlike with President Clinton, they now had an easy out every time someone disagreed with the president. If you disagree with President Obama’s policies, you are a racist!
Not satisfied to attack the living for their perceived racism, liberals have now attempted to rewrite history and portray the very founding of the United States as racially bigoted.
The left has succeeded in removing historical symbols and figures all across the country in the name of racial equality and social justice warfare. Mount McKinley was recently renamed “Denali.” States across the south have been forced to remove the confederate flag and rename hundreds of streets, schools, and other public institutions because they have not been deemed sensitive to slavery’s history.
Now, a state legislator from Shreveport, Louisiana says that school children in the Bayou State should not be required to recite the Declaration of Independence because — you guessed it — it’s racist! Watch below to see other lawmakers look on in bemused astonishment as Mrs. Norton shares her, uh… interesting point of view.
