Rashida Tlaib, Pressley Use July 4 To Tell Everyone America Is Sexist And Racist

Two of the most anti-American new Congresswomen used Independence Day to call the Founding Fathers, and the United States, sexist and racist as Colin Kaepernick did.

Both congresswomen, Michigan’s Rep. Rashida Tlaib and Massachusetts Rep. Ayanna Pressley shared an story from Salon that made the claims.

“’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,’” Pressley wrote, quoting the story.

“The impact of the prejudices, biases & contradictions codified by our founding fathers is still felt today. We continue to struggle as a nation to embrace our full history, one that includes family separation of black families at the auction block & today of migrants at camps,” she said.

“A country that has yet to realize it’s full promise for every person that calls it home & indeed makes it great, & yet it is a free country, one where I can resist, offer dissenting & critical opinion & challenge with bold activist leadership.

“Dissent is the ultimate patriotism, & as such I will continue to be a patriot. On this day, I am grateful for the freedoms afforded me in this country to do so. #resist #HappyFourthOfJuly,” she said.

Should they resign from Congress?

“’I love America more than any other country in this world, and exactly for this reason, I insist on the right to criticize her perpetually.’ -James Baldwin But not only to criticize, to also celebrate & most of all to Work,” she said.

“To Work daily in coalition to preserve what is good & working, & to dismantle what is broken while mitigating the hurt caused by broken systems.

“The Work of progress & realizing a more equitable & just world never stops, but today we pause to reflect & fortify for the Work ahead,” she said.

“This July 4th, please donate to local community bond funds, which help reunite migrant families by freeing caged migrant parents held on bond.

“This is how we fight back and demand a more compassionate loving country. #CloseTheCamps,” Tlaib said after retweeting all of Pressley’s tweets.
