Add Charlie Kirk to the list of those who oppose making Juneteenth a federal holidayJohn Fea | June 18, 2021The Trump court evangelical joins the fourteen members of Congress who opposed making Juneteenth a federal holiday. As he is prone to do, the supposedly God-fearing Kirk had a hissy fit on Twitter:Lincoln knew America’s founding was July 4 1776. He knew that was the day our amazing nation made a step from “ideal” to reality“Juneteenth” is an affront to the unity of July 4th. We now have 2 summer holidays—and one of them based on raceShame on the GOP for supporting this— Charlie Kirk (@charliekirk11) June 17, 2021Making Juneteenth a federal holiday isn’t about emancipation of slaves. If it was—they would make September 22nd, Emancipation Proclamation Day, a federal holidayThis is about replacing July 4th—just like the 1619 Project is about replacing 1776Conservatives must reject this.— Charlie Kirk (@charliekirk11) June 17, 2021Stop surrendering to the left because you are afraid of being called a racist.— Charlie Kirk (@charliekirk11) June 17, 2021America is building statues of George Floyd but tearing down statues of Abraham Lincoln and Frederick Douglass. God help us all.— Charlie Kirk (@charliekirk11) June 17, 2021Candace is right! https://t.co/GIiH9gVLuP— Charlie Kirk (@charliekirk11) June 17, 2021America only has one Independence Day and it's on July 4th, 1776.If you're a conservative who is okay with the "Juneteenth National Independence Day Act," you're not paying attention to what the left is truly trying to accomplish.— Charlie Kirk (@charliekirk11) June 17, 2021If you appreciate this content, please consider becoming a Patron of Current.
