Teen Vogue starts July 4th with ‘happy malia obama day;’ then posts a string of America-bashing stories

In-between slamming the Declaration of Independence for its alleged racism/sexism and using historical quotes out of context to portray the Fourth of July as a racist holiday, the far-left also took time this Thursday to indoctrinate teen girls on how much America allegedly sucks.

In what may be the most stunning anti-American blitzkrieg in recent days, Teen Vogue “celebrated” the Fourth by spending all day posting story after story trashing America — and doing so with the help of a multimillionaire rapper.

The trash-talking started at 12:05 am, Thursday morning, when the left-wing magazine tweeted “happy malia Obama day” …

Apparently, the Fourth also coincided with the birthday of former President Barack Hussein Obama’s elder daughter, though that still doesn’t explain why the magazine would label the most important day in American history “malia obama day” …

Five hours later, at 5:35 am in the morning, the magazine dropped its first anti-American piece, titled “The Racist History of America’s Patriotic Anthems.”

“Patriotism is defined as ‘love for or devotion to one’s country.’ As black people, we’re expected to shut up and sing these songs that, for so long, declared and celebrated freedom that specifically excluded us; freedom that, in 2019, still doesn’t feel applicable to us,” that piece reads.

The piece doesn’t actually provide any examples to prove this narrative, likely because no examples exist. Everybody in America enjoys the exact same freedoms.

As of Saturday morning, this piece had only 1,800 likes but over 4,300 comments — almost all of them highly critical of the magazine over its divisive “propaganda.”

Undeterred by its patriotic naysayers, the magazine doubled down with another piece five hours later. Titled “You Cannot Separate America’s Present Beauty From Its Violent Past,” this piece excoriated the United States for “all the crimes” it has committed.

“This independence day, I’ll be watching the sky, enjoying the lights, the warmth of being surrounded by family and friends, yet all the while keeping close the knowledge of all the crimes this nation has committed,” that piece reads.

While the response to this piece was more muted, with fewer people having taken note of it, one astute Twitter user did reply with a very cogent point.

“There is nothing wrong with keeping the past in mind as long as you keep in mind the good as well as the bad. America has its past sins, as do all nations & societies in all times and places. But forgetting the good that has triumphed is disingenuous,” Twitter user Earl Tower wrote.

Two hours later Teen Vogue dropped another piece. This one seemed at first glance to be pro-American, but it wasn’t.

It was titled “Independence Day 101: The History Behind the Fourth of July,” and while it provided an accurate summary of the holiday, it also included an unnecessary bit that appeared to suggest black Americans are still enslaved …

“[M]any have used Independence Day to point out that not everyone in America is independent — not, at least, as independent as they should be,” the latter portion of the piece reads.

“That was the topic of a now-famous speech by former slave and abolitionist Frederick Douglass in 1852, more than a decade before the end of slavery in the U.S.”

That was the same speech that Kaepernick took out of context to bash America.

HERE’S WHAT YOU’RE MISSING …

Moving along, five hours later Teen Vogue returned to its original narrative to talk more trash one last time. In a piece published at 5:35 pm, multimillionaire rapper Vic Mensa complained about the country’s allegedly evil ways.

“To be an American is to be indoctrinated with racism, violence, capitalism and manifest destiny, the principles upon which the land of the free was founded,” the multimillionaire rapper opined.

“The facts behind Thanksgiving, chattel slavery, the civil war, internment camps, mass incarceration, and even the national anthem are all sanitized for over-the-counter consumption, available in chewable vitamin form at a drugstore near you. Anything to keep the profit machine running, including murder and terrorism, America’s #1 export.”

This piece was titled “Vic Mensa: Don’t Ask Me to Love America When It Doesn’t Love Me.”

It’s unclear why Mensa doesn’t feel “loved” in a country that’s allowed him to earn more wealth than an estimated 93.5 percent of the population.
