The Juneteenth Holiday Should Be Abolished

Date: Sunday, June 18, 2023 5:32 PM EDT

 

  By Timothy D. Naegele[1] 

Americans love holidays, especially when they are paid not to work, and have three days to travel or otherwise enjoy themselves.  The "Juneteenth" holiday is no exception, but it should be abolished.[2]  African-Americans constitute less than 14 percent of our population; and the holiday recognizes the Left's guilt after having given us slavery, which Abraham Lincoln and the Republicans ended. 

Undeterred, the vicious Democrats perpetuated it after our Civil War with the Ku Klux Klan (KKK) and segregation.  Then, Lyndon Johnson's "Great Society" programs destroyed black families and consigned them to economic servitude.  No holiday nor any amount of guilt can undo what the Democrats did to African-Americans.  Lots of us began as Democrats but left the party years ago when it veered so far to the Left that it became unrecognizable.

African-Americans should abandon the party too, rather than be influenced by the sop of a fraudulent holiday, to atone for the party's seemingly-endless sins and atrocities that continue to this day.  It is another shining example of the insanity and lawlessness that have been unleashed by brain-addled Joe Biden and his Democrats, who must be incarcerated at Rikers Island or Guantanamo Bay for their many crimes.[3]

I disagree, America was founded by and for the white man.  Patriots like Trump and Mr. Naegele wil make sure it stays that way.  Once Trump takes back what's rightfully his, he'll abolish this made up holiday.  Long live the King!

I've never seen a blogger filled with so much hate for other people before.  All of your posts are such rants, ripping at everyone who is "different" than you. You should really get some therapy.

You sound like quite the rascist. Who cares if we make up only 14% of the population.  As Flat Broke said, this holiday represents a very important part of American history, and we are no less part of that history than you.  Shame on  you.

You had it right in the beginning... every one love a holiday! another day off is a good thing.  Compared to Europe, and China, we have very little time off as it is. I'm all for it, and have no problem celebrating an important part of our American History.
