As Americans celebrated the Fourth of July, Florida Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D) reminded Americans that “as we celebrate the freedom we all enjoy,” Americans must “not forget the work still needed to live up to our ideals of liberty and justice for all.”
"Happy #July4th! As we celebrate the freedom we all enjoy, let us not forget the work still needed to live up to our ideals of liberty and justice for all," tweeted Rep. Wasserman Schultz.
Rep. Wasserman Schultz echoed, almost verbatim, White House Press Secretary Jenn Psaki when she defended disgraced Olympic hammer thrower, Gwen Barry. Psaki made her remarks about Berry turning her back on the U.S. Flag during medal ceremony at a White House press briefing.
“He (Biden) would also say, of course, that part of that pride in our country means recognizing there are moments where we are —as a country, haven’t lived up to our highest ideals, and it means respecting the right of people, granted to them in the Constitution, to peacefully protest,” said Psaki.
While Wasserman Schultz doesn’t appear to believe that Americans are living up to the “ideals of liberty” that framed the nation, some of her other colleagues in the House of Representatives, namely Progressive Democrat Cori Bush (D), have reverted to disparaging the nation.
In a tweet, the former Black Lives Matter militant tweeted, "When they say that the 4th of July is about American freedom, remember this: the freedom they’re referring to is for White people. This land is stolen land and Black people still aren’t free."
Other Florida Democrats like Rep. Stephanie Murphy stated that they were “proud to call America home,” while others like Rep. Kathy Castor, believe that Americans need to “recommit to securing liberty and equality for ALL who call our America home.”
Rep. Castor appears to possibly make a subtle inference to the ongoing and controversial race, transgender, immigration controversies that have divided the country.
