President Donald Trump’s supporters have long known that no matter what the man does to try to heal our country, he’s relentlessly attacked by people who refuse to let him because they themselves are just natural haters.
The White House noted that the president wants to hold a rally in Tulsa, Okla., on “Juneteenth,” which is the anniversary of the end of slavery in the United States.
Tulsa is historic too; it is the site of the worst massacre of blacks in our country. Trump obviously chose the site — and the date — strategically, as our nation reels from racial unrest (again) following the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis at the hands of a couple of bad cops.
The Washington Times reports:
'This isn't just a wink to white supremacists—he's throwing them a welcome home party,' tweeted Sen. Kamala D. Harris, California Democrat and a contender to become running mate for Democratic nominee Joseph R. Biden
Kamau Marshall, a spokesman for the Biden campaign, said on Twitter, 'How racist is Donald Trump: He's so racist that he plans on having one of his first campaign rallies on June 19th in Tulsa, OK.'
Juneteenth, also known as Freedom Day, celebrates the reading of the Emancipation Proclamation to enslaved African Americans on June 19, 1865, after the end of the Civil War. Texas was the last Confederate state to have the proclamation announced — President Lincoln had made it effective in 1863, but there were few Union troops to enforce it in Texas until after the war ended in April 1865.
Celebrations of Juneteenth date to 1866.
Right. Trump the ‘racist’ — who never brings up race, but his black and Hispanic detractors sure do — is going to Tulsa to rub it the face of minorities. Unbelievable.
But his campaign took the high road, like it always does in the face of real racists.
'As the party of Lincoln, Republicans are proud of the history of Juneteenth, which is the anniversary of the last reading of the Emancipation Proclamation,' Trump campaign senior adviser Katrina Pierson said in a statement.
'President Trump has built a record of success for black Americans, including unprecedented low unemployment prior to the global pandemic, all-time high funding for Historically Black Colleges and Universities, and criminal justice reform. Joe Biden spent last Juneteenth raising money at a private fundraiser and defending comments he made celebrating his work with segregationist senators,” she added.
And let’s never forget: Before Democrats figured out they could get their pals in the media and academia to help them memory hole history, the Democrats are the party of slavery, Jim Crow, and the KKK.
