Juneteenth is a holiday intended to celebrate the end of slavery in the Confederate states. It has been celebrated by the black community and other Americans for almost 150 years. (See: Juneteenth Is a Perfect Opportunity to Weave All the Threads Into the Fabric of America’s Tapestry)
So, it comes as no surprise the leftists decided to use this year’s Juneteenth celebration to continue promoting their so-called progressive agenda. Several different activist media outlets used the occasion to convince people to support the Democrats’ federal, voting rights legislation.
The proposed legislation – which is not likely to pass, thanks to Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) – would essentially be a federal takeover of states’ elections. It would prevent states from passing laws designed to safeguard election integrity, making it easier for fraud to occur.
MSNBC’s Joy Reid, who sorta disapproves of sexual harassment depending on who’s doing it, tweeted: “Happy Juneteenth!!! — but only to those who believe everyone; Black, white brown, Asian or indigenous, has the right to vote, and that the results of an election should be respected. The rest of y’all should just consider today Saturday. Looking at you, @GOP. Be blessed.”

The Baltimore Sun’s Jeff Barker tweeted a news story titled: “Baltimoreans celebrate Juneteenth — but also ask, ‘What happened to voting rights? What happened to policing?’”
CNN posted a tweet accusing the Republican Party of passing “discriminatory voting bills.”

The Muslim American Society also got in on the act. They posted a tweet calling for the passing of the John Lewis Voting Rights Act and the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act.
We must take concrete steps to protect the peoples lives and right to vote by passing the John Lewis Voting Rights Act & George Floyd Justice in Policing Act. We have a long way to go, recognizing Juneteenth as a national holiday is a step, we must go further in action. pic.twitter.com/og1pH2Nelv

Filmmaker and cheeseburger enthusiast Michael Moore posted a tweet with the usual, hard leftist claptrap.
…Juneteenth Day will not truly be complete until the Voting Rights bills pass, states stop passing voter suppression laws, cops stop shooting Black citizens, we end our prison-industrial complex, a white family’s net worth is no longer 10 times greater than a Black family’s…

The list goes on and on, but putting more tweets in this piece might cause a loss of IQ points. Suffice it to say, these folks are more concerned with politicking than appreciating the day Republicans ended slavery in the Confederate states. Go figure.
