Joe Biden, who 38% of Americans believe has dementia, has made increasingly bizarre and forgetful faux pas. For example, when speaking of the Declaration of Independence earlier this year, Biden said, “We hold these truths to be self-eli-vident. All men and women are created, by the, the you know, you know the thing” (see below).
Perhaps Biden isn’t the only Democrat who seems incapable of getting his facts right about America’s Independence. In a bizarre Facebook post earlier today, Montana Governor Steve Bullock botched the purpose of Independence Day.
Bullock said, “Let us not forget that this day is about working together through challenging times.”
Of course, that is not the purpose of the holiday. The purpose of the holiday is to celebrate independence from a tyrannical government. This is why it is called Independence Day. Bullock, on the other hand, was applying the ethos behind the American holiday to his admonition to celebrate away from large crowds. And in previous Facebook posts over the last week, Bullock has been warning Montanans they had better wear masks when they go outside or face a return of Phase 1 house arrests and business closures.
Several constituents called Bullock out on his butchering of the purpose of Independence Day (see below).
If you would like to understand the purpose and meaning behind Independence Day, below is a video from Praeger University explaining it.
