If the very text of the Declaration of Indpendence, being read out on the Fourth of July, sounds to you like a propoganda attack against your guy in the White House, then I submit the problem is with your guy in the White House. Not with the Declaration of Independence, and not with the people reading, tweeting, or otherwise broadcasting it.
I realise an article really ought to be longer, but frankly, what else is there to say about the fact that the document that is the very foundation and initiation of America’s existence could be denounced as liberal propoganda and trash?
Except of course, that it has happened before. During the time of Joseph McCarthy, a journalist used the opening sentences of the Declaration as a petition, and tried to find signatures for it. Many did. Others denounced it as a communist screed, while still others feared they might be denounced if they put their names to such sentiments. And McCarthy himself? Praised these reactions.
Is there any clearer proof about how little so many on the Right understand the patriotism they like to go on about?
