As further evidence of the abject idiocy that the loony left has unleashed on our country, consider that the National Archives in Washington, D.C., the repository for our most revered documents, has been influenced by these social justice warriors to place a warning on the original Bill of Rights, the Declaration of Independence, the U.S. Constitution and other documents which reads “harmful content” and warns visitors that “some documents may be harmful or difficult to view.”

The rotunda where these documents are housed has been declared by these same nannies as an example of “structural racism.” These documents are some of the most important documents in the history of mankind and have led to the establishment of the most important country in the world, but that is completely lost on these nitwits as it does not comply with their warped viewpoint of the United States as an “evil colonialist and oppressive country.”

However, in their ongoing Orwellian campaign to erase all the treasures of our history, the left has conveniently ignored the fact that these documents initiated the lasting era of Jeffersonian democracy, capitalism and individually inherent rights which has permeated throughout the world, as well as began the decline and eventual elimination of monarchies as the predominant form of government.

These documents paved the way for our country, which was originally greatly flawed by slavery, to eventually mature into the most admired nation on earth and a shining example of what can be accomplished when the importance of the individual is placed above that of the state.

No matter how people of color view this country, they are living in the best country at the best time and no amount of complaining about “systemic racism” can or will change that. Maybe some of them can explain to me where they would rather live and why — maybe China, Russia, Iran or North Korea, where they would be subjected to the loss of most, if not all, of their civil rights and even the slightest complaining about racism would likely earn them some serious repercussions.

There are no illegal immigrants trying to force themselves into those countries. I wonder why?

Maybe they could try India, Africa, Southeast Asia, Central or South America, where the economies would be unlikely to afford them anywhere near the benefits they routinely receive in this country. A lot of those folks are trying to come here. Or maybe Europe, which is already overflowing with unwanted immigrants.

Truth be told, sometimes folks just need to leave well enough alone. Especially when the “well enough” is the best in the world.
