Outrageous State Rep: Declaration of Independence Is Racist
A bill mandating that schoolchildren in Louisiana be taught the Declaration of Independence is being opposed by a state lawmaker.
Louisiana State Rep. Barbara Norton (D) said, "For the Declaration of Independence, only Caucasians [were] free. And for you to bring a bill to request that our children will recite the Declaration, I think it's a little bit unfair."
On "Fox and Friends Weekend," Deneen Borelli slammed Norton's "outrageous" argument, explaining the founding documents of the United States of America are the blueprint for our great country.
"For her to be attacking the Declaration of Independence, that is attacking liberty, that is attacking freedom," Borelli said.
She added that the Democratic Party, of which Norton is a member, doesn't exactly have the strongest record on slavery and race relations throughout U.S. history.
"People should not let her get away with this."
