The decision to hijack the July 4th holiday in order to acknowledge the new federal holiday of Juneteenth by featuring a rendition of the “Black National Anthem” has resulted in severe blowback for PBS.
When it was announced that the network would open their annual “A Capitol Fourth” celebration with a rendition of “Lift Every Voice and Sing,” by Vanessa Williams as a competing national anthem for the “woke” revolution, it only served to further divide an America that Democrats led by Joe Biden have repeatedly claimed is a racist nation.
In promoting her groundbreaking appearance on the 41st edition of the PBS event, Williams told the Associated Press that “It’s in celebration of the wonderful opportunity that we now have to celebrate Juneteenth. So we are reflective of the times,” an acknowledgment that many believe that July 4th is racist and that Juneteenth is the real independence day.
Vanessa Williams will honor Juneteenth at this year's Capitol Fourth celebration.

Last month, Biden signed off on adding Juneteenth which was celebrated in many states as the day that the slaves were freed from their Democrat masters, a revisionist spin on history as it came after the Emancipation Proclamation by Republican President Abraham Lincoln.
The fireworks directed at PBS exploded across Twitter after the news broke.
Vanessa honey, a BLACK national anthem is something a Black African Country would have, not a country like America that exists for everyone 🇺🇸🤦🏾♀️ https://t.co/ZLt8kZLRSU

The Star Spangled Banner is our national anthem. To stand at attention, hand over heart for any other anthem is un-American.https://t.co/YgJBzP2wfd

To PBS’s credit, they did also allow the singing of the “Star Spangled-Banner”, a song that like the U.S. flag has been smeared as a symbol of white supremacy by the radial left.
PBS wasn’t the only taxpayer-subsidized propaganda organ to dump on America for July 4th, NPR also promoted the big lie that America was built on a foundation of racism and sexism.
🧵 245 years ago today, leaders representing 13 British colonies signed a document to declare independence.
It says "that all men are created equal" — but women, enslaved people, Indigenous people and many others were not held as equal at the time. https://t.co/dtE0z2Uabc

The political left’s plan to divide and conquer is working far better than practically anyone could have imagined thanks to a corrupt media that only serves as a propaganda arm for the Democratic party and is totally onboard with the idea that America is a terrible place that needs to be torn down and reconstructed to their liking.
