Muslim Dem Rep Tlaib Denounces America, Declaration Of Independence In Disgusting July 4th Tweet [OPINION]

By Calvin Custis at The Federalist PapersVia Right Wing Tribune -[OPINION] To celebrate the Fourth of July, Rep. Rashida Tlaib decided to denounce America and the Declaration of Independence on Twitter.

Tlaib retweeted this message:

“Our founding fathers were not living gods…they were fallible human beings.” The Declaration of Independence “did not condemn slavery, protect the rights of women or include Native Americans.”

So the Declaration of Independence is “sexist, racist, and prejudiced”?

Do you know who else believed that? Roger Taney, the author of the infamous Dred Scott Supreme Court decision, and Stephen A. Douglas, Abraham Lincoln’s challenger in the 1860 presidential election.

Do you know who DIDN’T believe that the Declaration was “sexist, racist, and prejudiced”?

Abraham Lincoln. And Frederick Douglass.

So why is Rashida Tlaib repeating the arguments of the racist Taney and Steve Douglas against the anti-slavery Lincoln and Fred Douglass?

Because she doesn’t know any better.

From Salon:

Yet despite its overwhelmingly positive impact on history, the Declaration of Independence was also a product of its time — and bears some of the shortcomings of its era, including sexism, racism and prejudice against Native Americans. …

I won’t repeat any of the historical distortions and outright lies that the piece makes in order to make its point.

I could go line by line and explain how Salon and Tlaib get everything wrong about the Declaration and the American Founders.

But I realized I don’t have to do that because someone else already did. Read The Rest At The Federalist Papers
