PATHETIC: Republican Senators Propose Replacing ‘Columbus Day’ with ‘Juneteenth’ as National Holiday

With Republicans like these, who needs Democrats?

on

Sens. Ron Johnson (R-WI) and James Lankford (R-OK) have proposed a legislative amendment that would replace “Columbus Day” as a federal holiday with “Juneteenth,” in another capitulation to the far-left mob.

Johnson and Lankford proposed the amendment to legislation proposed by Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) that would make Juneteenth into a national holiday. The lawmakers felt the bill did not go far enough in virtue-signaling for liberals so they decided to tack on their proposed amendment.

The proposal would amend Section 6103(a) of title 5, United States Code by making June 19th an annual federal holiday, and striking Columbus Day, which takes place every second Monday in October, from the record. Juneteenth refers to the date that a town’s slaves learned they were freed, and was not celebrated much outside of Texas until this year.

Black Lives Matter (BLM) terrorists have pushed Juneteenth in order to guilt white people regarding their supposed role in the enslavement of blacks. It goes along with the communist tropes of structural racism and white privilege that are regularly used to attack the Constitution and rule of law.

Big League Politics has reported about the ideological underpinnings of the BLM terror movement, including its Marxist founders and racist pseudo-history writers.

“We actually do have an ideological frame. Myself and [BLM co-founder Alicia Garza] in particular are trained organizers. We are trained Marxists,” said BLM co-founder Patrisse Cullors.

“We are super versed on all sorts of ideological theories, and I think that what we really try to do is build a movement that could be utilized by many, many black folk,” she added.

“[The whites] lasting monument was the destruction and enslavement of two races of people,” wrote Nikole Hannah-Jones, whose erroneous “1619 Project” won her a Pulitzer Prize.

“The descendants of these savage people pump drugs and guns into the Black community, pack Black people into the squalor of segregated urban ghettos and continue to be bloodsuckers in our community,” Hannah-Jones added.

BLM’s official website confirms that the movement is focused “on issues concerning racial injustice, police brutality, criminal justice reform, Black immigration, economic injustice, LGBTQIA+ and human rights, environmental injustice, access to healthcare, access to quality education, and voting rights and suppression.”

Johnson, Lankford, and other Republican cowards are appeasing the likes of these people as they wage a cultural revolution to destroy America. These Benedict Arnolds will be remembered by history in a worse light than the Marxists for folding at a time when strong leadership was needed the most.

Louie Gohmert Blames Mask Usage for COVID-19 Diagnosis, Plans to Take Hydroxychloroquine to Treat Virus

The mask may have caused him to catch the Chinavirus.

Published

on

Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) has reportedly tested positive for COVID-19, which the fake news media has attributed to his lack of using a face mask.

However, Gohmert says he tested positive for the disease after complying with mask mandates more than ever. He feels the mask usage did not protect him from getting the virus and may have even contributed to it.

He told reporters that it is “ironic” that he would catch COVID-19 now “because a lot of people have made a big deal out of my not wearing a mask a whole lot, but in the last week or two I have worn a mask more than I have in the whole last four months.”

“I can’t help but wonder if by keeping a mask on and keeping it in place, if I might have put some germs, some of the virus on the mask and breathed it in,” Gohmert said.

Democrats are chiding Gohmert because he has talked against lockdown policies, mask mandates, and more overreach implemented because of COVID-19 mass hysteria.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said that she is “sorry for my members, who are concerned because he has been showing up at meetings without a mask and making a thing of it.”

Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY) added that he is “concerned about the irresponsible behavior of many of the Republicans who have chosen to consistently flout well-established public health guidance perhaps out of fealty to their boss, Donald Trump, who is the head of the anti-mask movement in America.”

Big League Politics has reported on how the mass hysteria has caused Americans to turn on their heritage of freedom and liberty to support forcible unconstitutional mandates:

A new poll from Morning Consult/Politico reveals that a solid majority of Americans support a mask mandate that would implement fines of jail time for those that refuse to wear masks in public places.

The asks registered voters if they’d support a mandated implemented by their state government. 72% of of responding registered voters stated that they’d “strongly” or “somewhat” support a state-implemented mask mandate that is punishable by jail time or fines.

The poll asked the following question.

Based on what you know about the COVID-19 pandemic (coronavirus), would you support or oppose your state instituting a face mask mandate in public spaces, where not wearing a mask could be punishable by fine or jail time?

Curiously, Baby Boomers, one of America’s most conservative voting demographics, support a mask mandate most strenuously. 78% of Boomers support the mask mandate. Millennials (68%) and Generation Z (63%) support it the least, although wide majorities still do.

Democrats support the mask mandate in almost unanimous fashion, with 86% of them supporting it. A solid majority of Republicans support mandatory masks as well, with a majority of 58%.

There simply is widespread public support for wearing a mask and taking limited measures to deter the spread of coronavirus in the United States. Republicans and conservatives risk alienating such popular sentiment at their own electoral peril.

Gohmert plans to take hydroxychloroquine in order to treat COVID-19 and fend off potential symptoms.

“My doctor and I are all in, and I got a text just before I came on from a dear friend, [a] doctor, who just found out he had it, and he said he started a HCQ [hydroxychloroquine] regimen, too,” Gohmert said while appearing on Fox News.

“I got a tiny little taste of what you and the president get every day,” Gohmert said to host Sean Hannity, “The left went nuts.”

Gohmert hopes to be among the 99.7 percent of coronavirus sufferers who recover from the disease.
