HomePolitical NewsDemocrat Freshmen Rashida Tlaib and Ayanna Pressley Trash the Declaration of Independence as Sexist, Racist and Prejudiced on 4th of July Mike Vance July 6, 2019 What better day than the 4th of July for Democrat freshmen Rashida Tlaib and Ayanna Presley to trash the Declaration of Independence? The two locked in on a hateful and inaccurate smear piece from Salon that was titled: “Fourth of July’s ugly truth exposed: The Declaration of Independence is sexist, racist, prejudiced” Pressley created a tweet about the article and of course Tlaib was quick to retweet it: "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." https://t.co/RujjiopufJ — Ayanna Pressley (@AyannaPressley) July 4, 2019 The piece by Matthew Rozsa locked in on the part where the Declaration of Independence did not condemn slavery or guarantee the rights of women. Considering this was a document created by 1776 and the hit job was coming from two super privileged women in 2019, that's pretty rough.
