Senate Unanimously Approves Juneteenth Federal Holiday

Eradicating American culture and heritage requires replacing our holidays with new ones that invite us to feel guilty about our history instead of taking pride in it. For example, a day devoted to racial guilt has been put forth to eventually displace the Fourth of July. The Senate passed a bill yesterday to make Juneteenth a federal holiday:

The resolution, introduced by Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, Sen. Ed Markey, D-Mass., and Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, D-Texas, passed by unanimous consent. House lawmakers are also expected to approve the bipartisan legislation.

Sure they will. It may even be unanimous again.

Note that Cornyn sports an “R” after his name. He didn’t just fail to resist this obscene gesture — he sponsored it. The company of the radical leftists Markey and Jackson Lee doesn’t bother him. Maybe he thinks he can get liberals to vote Republican.

In the past year, black supremacists and their fellow travelers have rioted many hundreds of times, injuring thousands of police officers and causing $billions in damages. The response by the US Senate is to reward them by devoting a national holiday to obsessing on the oppression of their distant ancestors, which is the fulcrum of reality according to their toxic ideology.

The inevitable result of rewarding the worst rioting in American history will be more riots whenever a pretext presents itself.

The bill appears to have been explicitly intended as an offering to the rioters:

The Cornyn-backed bill was first introduced in the Senate in 2020 following nationwide protests against racial injustice after the death of George Floyd.

Out of 100 senators, the closest to a patriot is Ron Johnson (R-WI).

Johnson was the lone senator to object to the legislation, arguing in July 2020 that the bill would place an undue burden on taxpayers by requiring them to fund another paid holiday for federal employees.

Rather than defend American history from the propaganda war leftists are waging against it, Johnson pointed out that yet another day off for federal parasites would cost taxpayers $600 million per year. Then he dropped his objection, confirming that there is not even one member of the Senate willing to stand up for his country against political correctness.

Juneteenth is celebrated on June 19 to commemorate the end of slavery in the United States. On June 19, 1865, Union Army general Gordon Granger declared the abolishment of slavery in Galveston, Texas, more than two years after President Abraham Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation.

That was a positive development in 1865. Abruptly making it into a federal holiday 156 years later is the farthest thing from positive. The purpose is to tighten the focus on slavery as the only meaningful aspect of American history, in accordance with the 1619 Project, critical race theory, and the endless stream of anti-Caucasian, anti-American bile vomited onto us by the schools, the media, and the government.
