Fourth of July: ‘Squad’ Members Scold America for ‘Stolen Land’ and Slavery

Breccan F. Thies, Washington Examiner, July 4, 2023

Reps. Jamaal Bowman (D-NY) and Cori Bush (D-MO) used the occasion of America’s independence to “demand reparations now” and push messages about “stolen land” and slavery.

In his Fourth of July message on Twitter, Bowman tweeted, “This July 4th, we must remember that we stand on stolen land toiled by enslaved Africans and recommit ourselves to the fight for freedom, equality, & justice so that these ideals are accessible to everyone, not just a privileged few.”

Similarly, Bush posted a message admonishing the Declaration of Independence and the founders, saying, “The Declaration of Independence was written by enslavers and didn’t recognize Black people as human.”

“Today is a great day to demand Reparations Now,” the Black Lives Matter activist added.
