Members of the Contra Costa County School Board are urging Americans to boycott our Independence Day holiday because they feel America is evil and there is “nothing to celebrate.”
This anti-American crusade is being led by AnaMarie Avila Farias, a third-generation Contra Costa County resident and member of the county’s board of education who posted a Facebook message reading “BOYCOTT 4TH OF JULY.”
“I haven’t celebrated 4th of July since 2016 and I don’t think it’s a holiday to celebrate,” Avila Farias wrote. “What do you think?”
“I am not feeling particularly patriotic,” Avila Farias said, adding, “I am especially not interested in celebrating a holiday centered around freedom from oppressive government when that freedom is not a reality for so many people in this country. Lastly, last Friday women’s reproductive rights were taken away. We are not in a place of progress or celebration when human rights are being taken away.”
The Daily Mail added that Avila Farias has written a full article explaining why she hates the U.S.A.:
The mother-of-two, who is also a member of the Democratic Party of Contra Costa County (DPCCC), also shared a blog post from the online-publishing platform, ‘Medium,’ written by Dana P. Saxon – founder of Ancestors Unknown, a ‘curriculum and special programming for schools and youth orgs.’
Her blog post is titled: ‘9 Reasons Why I Don’t Celebrate the 4th of July.’ In it she writes: ‘After 1776, it took nearly another 100 years before my ancestors technically gained their freedom in 1865. And a whole heap of pain, trauma, and oppression maintained during those years when only white Americans were liberated from someone else’s rule.’
She then went on to cite the three-fifths compromise, the 1787 fugitive slave clause and Frederick Douglass’ 1852 famous speech: ‘What to the Slave Is the Fourth of July?’ as reasons not to celebrate the federal holiday.
This is typical left-wing lying. Especially the “three-fifths clause” argument. That pre-Civil War rule was a measure to LIMIT slave power, not devalue black life.
But, it is typical of liberals. All they know is lies.Commentary
