Trump’s Followers So Unfamiliar With American History, They Are Angered When NPR Reads the Declaration of Independence

Not The Onion

For 29 years, National Public Radio’s “Morning Edition” has celebrated the Fourth of July with a reading of the Declaration of Independence by hosts, reporters, newscasters and commentators. This historically uncontroversial testament to the nation’s founding document proved uncontroversial-no-more in the year 2017.

After NPR tweeted the Declaration line by line, Donald Trump backers,seemingly unaware of the source document, accused the media organization of playing partisan politics. “So, NPR is calling for a revolution,” Twitter user @JustEsrafel wrote.

“Propaganda is that all you know?” another asked.  Some even taunted NPR over the president’s budget proposal, insisting this is why NPR will lose federal funding.

Take a look at the tweet screenshots… and weep for America.  No wonder these people voted for Trump.  They’re literally that ignorant.

    How many people have actually read the Declaration to the extent that they could tell ten things that it contains, and which popular 18th cent. philosopher Jefferson et. al. cribbed most of the ideas from? I expect that Trump’s followers’ reactions are more to the fact that MSNBC is the left-liberal mirror image of Faux News.

      well first it was read aloud on npr. second, they said what it was at the beginning. third, they said what it was at the end. fourth, every 5th grader who ever attended public school has read it or at least heard the thing read. and finally, i’m not sure what the mention of msnbc has to do with anything except the usual trumpian dislike of anything that isn’t fox news fake news.

    Surely no one could be surprised that his supporters are as dumb as the Orange Twit?
