Biden: One Independence Day for Americans is not enough

Biden establishes Juneteenth as a new holiday in a blatant effort to keep black voters in the democrat party

The Arizona Republic is well known for its far left slant, which is why subscriptions have plummeted.  It is also not above skewing facts when it suits its purposes. Today the objects of its bile spew are Arizona Congressmen Paul Gosar (CD-4) and Andy Biggs (CD-5). Their crime is one that is not found in the Arizona Revised Statutes Criminal Code. They have been elected by the citizens of their congressional districts because they are conservatives — a concept that is anathema to the newspaper that has made clear it hires reporters based on their ethnicity.

Congressmen Gosar and Biggs are being eviscerated for voting NO on S. 475, the Juneteenth National Independence Day Act, which establishes June 19, as a legal public holiday. Juneteenth was the mispronounced term used for June Nineteenth. It is tied to the history of enslaved blacks in Galveston, Texas, learning that they had been emancipated over two years earlier following President Abraham Lincoln’s September 22, 1862 Emancipation Proclamation, which abolished slavery.

Lost in all of the newly provoked racial discord is the fact that Abraham Lincoln was the first Republican U.S. President. Elected November 6, 1860 he was dedicated to ending slavery, which Southern democrats, who had seceded from the union, battled to preserve. The U.S. Civil War (1861-1865), in which an estimated 750,000 Americans died, was fought to end slavery. The Thirteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution passed by congress in 1865 reaffirmed the abolishment of slavery.

Read Paul Gosar’s logical statement explaining his vote.  We have also copied it here:

“Our country is divided, and the cultural and political Marxists are continuing their relentless efforts to divide this country further. 

Juneteenth is more debunked Critical Race Theory in action. I reject racism. I reject the racial division people are promoting. I voted no because this proposed holiday does not bring us together, it tears us apart.

I cannot support efforts that further racial divisions in this country. We have one Independence Day, and it applies equally to all people of all races.”

Rammed through by democrats exploiting the death of career criminal George Floyd, the Juneteenth holiday vote tally can be seen here. Of a total of 415 votes cast, the democrats all voted in unison. Republicans split, with 195 joining the democrats, and 14 Republicans voting against the creation of a new holiday. Two Republicans, Dan Crenshaw (TX)  and Patrick McHenry (NC) did not vote.

Joe Biden, a democrat who has fomented division, wasted no time signing the newly established holiday into law on Thursday.

    There’s no doubt Barack Obama is the behind-the-scenes manipulator of the Slo-Joe administration. I wonder why he didn’t institute this “holiday” during his two terms. How long will it be before more “adjustments” are made?

    • StetsonXXX says:

      We’ve already replaced Washington and Lincoln’s birthdays with a generic President’s Day. How much longer before the Fourth of July will be abolished as too patriotic and celebratory of war? We are rapidly losing our country and neutering patriotism is how that will be accomplished…aided and abetted by the lack of history being taught in public schools, which are staffed by mostly far left teachers who are members of the teacher’s unions that financially support radical dem candidates.

  2. Arizona Conservative Guy says:

    Arizonans are fortunate to have Paul Gosar and Andy Biggs representing us in Congress.

    My question is, why did U.S. Reps. Debbie Lesko and David Schweikert vote with the demoncrats on passing this absurd bill? How very disappointing that they have no backbone.

    • Clementine says:

      As political correctness reigns, we are being taken for fools. It’s time reevaluate and encourage conservatives to stand up to the OBiden colluders. I do not expect Republicans to vote with democrats on their trendy Critical Race Theory pet projects.

      • State Committeeman says:

        Well stated! I couldn’t have said it better!
        I would have expected this from Ted Kennedy clone McCain, but Schweikert and Lesko? Give me a break!!

  3. Jack says:

    Very disappointed in these votes. Would never have imagined two I’ve always considered conservatives bowing to this demorat led voter magnet foolishness. Wish we could clone Gosar and Biggs!

  4. Realist says:

    The American descendants of African slaves live far better than those who remained in Africa, where poverty and disease is rampant. Slavery was a horrible thing, but America is the only nation where it existed (and there have been, and still are, many) that fought a war within it’s own borders to obliterate it.

    Now these descendants are getting moved to the head of the line in college admissions and corporations, even if they fall short of others. And they are demanding “reparations” from those of us who never owed slaves or whose immigrant relatives lived in terrible conditions in the countries they left a generation or two ago.

    I’m disgusted with the Republicans who fell in with the dems on this federal holiday madness. I tried calling the DC offices to complain, but they will not accept blocked numbers and I refuse to unblock mine.

    They’ll take my tax dollars that pay their salaries, but they won’t take my call? What arrogance!!

    • Doc says:

      They don’t accept “Blocked” numbers because it gives th’ effa-bee-eye trouble spying on us! If you use a pay phone (you’ll have to find one but there’s still a few around) you might have better luck! Schweikert & Lesko need to have their phones ringing NON-STOP!!!

  5. Not Fooled says:

    The dems are using their time in the White House to cement a permanent robotic voter base. Barack Obama gave away cell phones for votes. Next holiday will be George Floyd’s birthday. Soon, the millions of illegals that Biden is allowing to flood the USA will be a solid voting bloc the dems can rely on. There’s a method to what shortsighted observers see as their madness.
