Banned at Arizona State University so that queers and racists could
be celebrated instead
As part of the celebrations this month for the fake holidays Juneteenth and Pride month, Arizona State University decided the American flag must come down and be replaced with flags celebrating the queer agenda and the Marxist and the racist anti-American agenda that Juneteenth represents.
On Wednesday, Turning Point USA founder Charlie Kirk blasted Arizona State University for replacing American flags lining a street with Juneteenth and Pride flags. Kirk posted photos of ASU’s downtown Tempe, Arizona campus, with streets lined with alternating colorful pride flags, and the Juneteenth flag bearing a large star.
“Originally, the flags outside my apartment on campus were all American flags, then, at the start of June following the Memorial Day holiday, they replaced every other flag with pride or ‘progress’ flags.
“About a week later, my two roommates and I watched through our window as one of the American flags was taken down and replaced with a ‘Juneteenth’ flag. By the next morning, all the American flags were replaced by the Juneteenth flags,” said an ASU student who wished not to be named.
Since I guarantee almost none of my readers know what this fake Juneteenth holiday stands for, here is the BBC’s liberal spin:
On 19 June 1865 – months after the northern US states defeated the slave-owning South in the US Civil War – enslaved African-Americans in Galveston, Texas, were told they were free.
That act of liberation came more than two and a half years after President Abraham Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation, declaring all enslaved people in the rebellious states to be free.
The declaration by General Gordon Granger to bring the Emancipation Proclamation into effect in the state of Texas is seen by many as the end of slavery. [emphasis mine]
The highlighted phrase illustrates the lie inherent in this fake holiday. I am almost seventy years old, am a very well educated historian of American history, and until the past two years I had never even heard of this so-called “act of liberation”, at least not in the context of anyone anywhere commemorating this particular event — including blacks. It was apparently invented as a major holiday by the left in the last few years, and is now being imposed upon us by the Democrats (and weak-kneed Republicans overwhelmed by white guilt) in order to replace July 4th as well as other holidays of greater importance that Americans actually care about.
Don’t believe me? Consider this then: This fake “holiday” doesn’t celebrate Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation. It doesn’t honor the Civil War or the hundreds of thousands of Americans who died to set “other men free.” It instead focuses on the fact that those efforts failed the poor black slaves in Texas, who had to wait almost three years before whites had the decency to free them.
In other words, American and its whites did evil things, and this is what must be remembered above all.
For those who still doubt my conclusions about Juneteenth, these excerpts from own Biden’s speech the day as he signed the bill creating this fake holiday prove its goal of denigrating American history:
A day in which we remember the moral stain, the terrible toll that slavery took on the country and continues to take — what I’ve long called “America’s original sin.”
…You know, I said a few weeks ago, marking the 100th anniversary of the Tulsa Race Massacre, great nations don’t ignore their most painful moments. Great nations don’t ignore their most painful moments. They don’t ignore those moments of the past. They embrace them. Great nations don’t walk away. We come to terms with the mistakes we made.
…The truth is, it’s not — simply not enough just to commemorate Juneteenth. After all, the emancipation of enslaved Black Americans didn’t mark the end of America’s work to deliver on the promise of equality; it only marked the beginning.
American liberty enlightening the world!
Furthermore, Biden’s declaration official named the holiday “Juneteenth National Independence Day,” making it clear its goal is to replace July 4th.
We are being told we must no longer celebrate America’s founding principles of freedom and “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness,” but instead must constantly remember its failures instead, and only those failures.
Finally, note that this celebration of “Juneteenth” is also linked with the even more odious “Pride Month” that celebrates the queer agenda. Both are being used as propaganda weapons to not only discredit America and its history, but to warp future generations.
And so, a university supposedly dedicated to higher learning takes down the American flag, to focus instead on propaganda and distorted history.
We have entered a new dark age. I pray that someday in the far future humans will once again remember America for what it truly was, a torch of liberty to the human race, proving that ordinary people — not lords, kings, or dictators — are the best rulers of all.
