At the risk of being accused of fomenting violence, We the People nevertheless proudly proclaim, “1776!”
Who knew before this week that referring to 1776–the year We the People declared our independence, citing our God-given rights–is nothing more than a “codeword” [sic] that calls for violence?
Who knew that it is now anathema to refer to 1776?
Certainly not the patriots who placed the year 1776 on the seal of the State of Georgia.
Certainly not the many patriots who every year celebrate the Fourth of July to commemorate the founding of our nation. (These patriots include, of course, every president, Republican or Democrat, who has declared the Fourth of July a national holiday.)
Do we now have to ask permission of the radical left to celebrate our founding on July 4, 1776, lest they consider the reference a microaggression, or worse, a call to violence?
Well, we refuse. Radical leftists are not going to “cancel” our national heritage and they’re not going to redefine what 1776 means to patriots throughout our Republic.
Also this week, Elon Musk has shown himself to be a patriot, promising to defend (restore?) our right to free speech, at least on Twitter.
Let’s hope this becomes a trend with social media companies.
God bless MTG and EM!
