This Fourth of July sure has a lot of people triggered. Kristine Parks reports for Fox News that NPR broke its longstanding tradition of reading the Declaration of Independence and instead had a discussion of the meaning of equality. “Morning Edition” host Leila Fadel made the announcement and said it would be an “important segment about our past and our future.”

Parks reports:

National Public Radio (NPR) announced it was breaking its long-standing 4th of July tradition of reading the Declaration of Independence to instead discuss “what equality means.”

For the past 33 years on NPR’s “Morning Edition,” NPR staff have celebrated America’s birthday by reading the founding document. However, co-host Leila Fadel announced on Twitter that this year they were scrapping that tradition to analyze what Thomas Jefferson meant by “all men are created equal.”

In the broadcast, the NPR host tied the fight for equality to recent rulings by the Supreme Court, like Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization.

“And many of our debates on this July 4th turn on what equality means. What voting rules really give equal access to the ballot. Do abortion laws give a woman equal control of her body? At what point is a fetus entitled to equal rights?” Inskeep asked.

Without providing explanation, Inskeep said that Republicans wanted “unequal voting power” and connected that idea to the “global move toward authoritarian rule.”

An outright bias by taxpayer-funded NPR? No way!

They really do. And we’d bet you the people who work there are so deep inside their bubble they actually consider themselves mainstream.
