(WND News Center) – Schools and businesses across America have gone “woke,” adhering now to politically correct language and agendas no matter how extreme. Just look at the adoption of the race-based “Black Lives Matter” while at the same time the inclusive “All Lives Matter” is condemned as racist.
But now Americans should have a higher level of concern, since the government appears to be adopting the same political agenda as the extremists.
It is the National Archives that has slapped a “Harmful Language Alert: see NARA’s Statement on Potentially Harmful Language” on its archives catalog.
National Archives Slaps ‘Harmful Content’ Warning On Constitution, All Other Founding Documentshttps://t.co/lJluPgianK
— The Federalist (@FDRLST) September 8, 2021
The Federalist reported the warning applies to all documents in the website, “including the Bill of Rights and the Declaration of Independence.”
And the threat suggests viewing those founding documents could be “harmful or difficult.”
“NARA’s records span the history of the United States, and it is our charge to preserve and make available these historical records,” the administration said in a statement obtained by the Federalist.
“As a result, some of the materials presented here may reflect outdated, biased, offensive, and possibly violent views and opinions. In addition, some of the materials may relate to violent or graphic events and are preserved for their historical significance.”
The federal agency has the responsibility of preserving and protecting America’s heritage documentation, but now has created the alarm that those papers might “reflect racist, sexist, ableist, misogynistic/misogynoir, and xenophobic opinions and attitudes; be discriminatory towards or exclude diverse views on sexuality, gender, religion, and more,” the report said.
The NARA now wants to work with “diverse communities” to impose “sensitivity” on the documentation.
The report explained, “This isn’t the first time the National Archives has catered to a leftist view of history. In June, the National Archives’ racism task force claimed that the Archives’ rotunda, which houses founding documents, is an example of ‘structural racism.’ The task force also pushed to include trigger warnings around displays of the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights, which are all in the rotunda.”
The Biden Administration has incredibly given permission to U.S. embassies to fly the Black Lives Matter (BLM) flag alongside the American flag for the rest of the year.
This order is an outrageous and insulting affront to American identity and sovereignty, and must be rescinded immediately!
Please SIGN this petition to demand that U.S. embassies around the world fly the American flag ONLY!
According to a leaked memo, quoted below and published by Human Events News on Monday, U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken urged embassies to push Black Lives Matter messaging and authorized them to "hang BLM flags" "for calendar year 2021."
"As outlined below, Chiefs of Mission may decide to hang BLM flags, as appropriate and depending on local context. This cable constitutes a blanket written authorization for calendar year 2021 from the Under Secretary for Management (M) to display the BLM flag on the external-facing flagpole to any Chiefs of Mission."
"The Department supports the use of the term ‘Black Lives Matter’ in messaging content, speeches, and other diplomatic engagements with foreign audiences to advance racial equity and access to justice on May 25 and beyond. We encourage posts to focus on the need to eliminate systemic racism and its continued impact."
Of course, eliminating racism is a positive thing, but NOT by promoting the Black Lives Matter organization or movement which have been linked to the following radical actions and ideas:
- Violent protests and the general destabilization of our society
- Defunding of our police departments
- The overthrow of the nuclear family
- Perpetual marxist revolution
Only a miniscule proportion of the American population supports the radical ideology and actions of the BLM organization and movement. In fact, polling shows that a strong majority of Americans believe that "All Lives Matter," rather than just the lives of just one race of Americans.
The Biden Administration's promotion of this Leftist symbolism and ideology is both dangerous and deliberately misleading.
And, it is the worst kind of virtue signaling, as the message being sent to the rest of the world is: "Get on board with the radical, marxist and revolutionary ideology of the BLM organization and movement if you want a favorable response from the United States government."
This kind of cultural imperialism and coercion is downright insulting to our allies and partners abroad.
But, it also demonstrates how the current U.S. administration is beholden to the radical leftist element of the Democratic Party -- which is downright insulting to most average Americans.
Please SIGN and SHARE this urgent petition demanding that the U.S. Department of State rescind permission to fly the BLM flag at U.S. embassies around the world.
Then, please CONTACT the Department of State by email or by telephone, to politely, but firmly, demand that only the U.S. flag, and not the BLM flag, be flown at U.S. diplomatic installations.
The State Department may be contacted by email at this webpage: https://register.state.gov/contactus/contactusform
The Office of the Secretary of State may be contacted at this telephone number: 202-647-4000

A commentary at RedState expressed little sympathy for the politically dictated agenda being adopted.
“You ever wonder what part of ‘We the People, or Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness’ is so harmful, offensive, xenophobic, or worse — my fellow ‘white supremacist,’ ‘systemically racist,’ ‘insurrectionist’ friends? Me, neither. Other than what our leftist friends tell us, 24×7, that is. Oh, well.”
The commentary continued, “Sarcasm aside, this is Orwellian, ‘Animal Farm’ barn wall stuff, gang.”
It continued, “The Founding Documents of the United States of America are now subject to a nameless, faceless, federal government bureaucracy that not only believes it has the constitutional right to determine — working with staff, communities, and peer institutions (likeminded bots) — to decide what constitutes offensive, outdated, biased, offensive, and possibly violent views and opinions — and as a result, to establish standards and policies to prevent future harmful languages, but also that is qualified to do so.”
And, “The Left is not stupid. It is insidious and it cannot be reasoned with. Left-wingers are impervious to facts, data, history, logic, and common sense. They might sometimes pretend to understand, agree, or compromise on any one or more of those factors, but they generally lie their a— off while doing so (see: Joe Biden), including, sometimes, lying to themselves.”
