Independence Day would be the day to celebrate our freedoms and the great country with which we have been blessed and which we must work to defend.

But liberal media seems to have taken the opportunity of the holiday to attack not only President Donald Trump, but American itself.

As we reported earlier, the memo appeared to have gone out to paint President Trump’s speech as “dark and divisive.” In fact, it was quite the opposite, celebrating the exceptionalism and the greatness of our nation.

Then there was this idiocy:

Trump didn’t say one thing about Confederate symbols and the legacy of white domination. It’s just out and out lying.

This is what Trump actually said.

From WaPo:

In our schools, our newsrooms, even our corporate boardrooms, there is a new far-left fascism that demands absolute allegiance. If you do not speak its language, perform its rituals, recite its mantras, and follow its commandments, then you will be censored, banished, blacklisted, persecuted, and punished. It’s not going to happen to us.

Make no mistake: this left-wing cultural revolution is designed to overthrow the American Revolution. In so doing, they would destroy the very civilization that rescued billions from poverty, disease, violence, and hunger, and that lifted humanity to new heights of achievement, discovery, and progress.

To make this possible, they are determined to tear down every statue, symbol, and memory of our national heritage.

But perhaps the worst spin of the day was this beauty from the WaPo that made my eyes roll into the back of my head. This is what they choose to run today. Sounds like they would do away with July 4 if they could. Indeed, the point is, as always with those on the left, the basis of America is evil.

How could anyone who studied any history write this sentence: “American independence helped further colonialism and white supremacy?”

The article is an utter mess and apparently has to rely upon British colonialism to buttress up its attack on America.

The US was actually, historically, the greatest break from monarchy/colonialism and toward the recognition of individual rights and liberties to that point in history. Because that’s its guiding principles, it’s brought more freedom and liberty than probably any government on the face of the earth in history. Many societies since our founding then copied that language and that effort. That which hadn’t been said before was then recognized more as a norm because we dared to say it. It is why we have been a beacon to the world and so many have left where they came from to enjoy the blessings of liberty here. To not understand that is to know nothing of history.

Time to reconsider the WaPo, and consign it to the dustbin of history.
