A National Emancipation Holiday is Reasonable
Don’t get me wrong. Having a national day of recognition separate from the other holidays to commemorate the end of slavery in the United States is a reasonable idea.
It’s the significance of the Juneteenth date that makes no sense to me. When Major General Gordon Granger issued his order on June 19th, 1865 in Texas – it was an important local administrative event, but the weight of its significance, compared to many others, is embarrassing.
And it conflicts with Father’s Day – a very important holiday for men.
I am not without offerings. Here are some better dates for celebrating emancipation that our Congress failed to consider.
September 22: the day Lincoln issued his preliminary Emancipation Proclamation Order in 1862. The proclamation declared “that all persons held as slaves” within the rebellious states “are, and henceforward shall be free.”
January 1: the day it took effect in 1863
January 31: the date the 13th Amendment passed Congress in 1865, officially abolishing the institution of slavery
December 6: the day the 13th Amendment was ratified by the states
April 3: the day Richmond, Virginia fell
April 9: the day Lee surrendered to Grant at Appomattox, Virginia
April 16: the day slavery was abolished in the nation’s capital in 1862
July 4: America’s first Independence Day, some “four score and seven years” before President Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation
We are celebrating a new federal holiday in the United States today, brought to you by all the politicians kneeling at the alter of Critical Race Theory.
What is Critical Race Theory?
Critical Race Theory teaches children that different groups possess distinct characteristics, abilities, or qualities, that distinguish them as inferior or superior to one another.
Adolf Hitler comes to some people’s mind because he had such an obvious and destructive obsession with race and ethnicity. Lenin. Stalin. Mao. Pinochet. Gaddafi. Hussein. They all had ‘issues.’ You get the point. Every civilization that has based freedom on critical race theory ends up living and possibly dying at the hand of a dictator. And yet, America, here we are.
Critical Race Theory values Marxist dictatorial rule and group (tribal) centric rights and laws. The theory disfavors individual rights & freedom in a hateful way. For the Critical Race Theory scam to work, racism must be perceived by mobs to be increasing. The primary fuel for racism is corrupt corporate media, elite academic institutions, and government and charity funded programs.
Critical Race Theory is a propaganda machine; a generation indoctrination engine. Its sole purpose is to help perform mob compliance & control of massive populations of the world by elites, who act through politicians and bureaucrats with irrational goals.
