Media and Politicians LIE About Juneteenth To Attack… Trump?

Politicians and media types alike are attacking Trump over having a rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma on June 19th, also known as “Juneteenth”. However, the history and reason behind the controversy of the date and location are not explained well by those who are outraged on television.

“Juneteenth” commemorates the day slaves in Galveston, Texas were informed of their freedom. This day was June 19th, 1865, a full two and a half years after the Emancipation Proclamation went into effect. The Emancipation was signed as an executive order by Abraham Lincoln on September 22, 1862, and became effective on January 1, 1863. It only applied to states in “rebellion” which excluded the Union.

Tulsa, Oklahoma is an important site for black Americans due to the race riot that resulted in the destruction of “Black Wallstreet” back in 1921. Black Americans thrived in a neighborhood called Greenwood and built up things people build when they become prosperous. Hence the name Black Wallstreet. Most of the community was destroyed during the riot. Many blacks and whites were killed. The dates for this incident was May 31-June 1. Not anywhere near June 19th or 1865, as some media and/or political types have tried to insinuate.

Confused Joe

During a very strange interview/talk in Philadelphia, Joe Biden gave his two cents on Trump’s upcoming Tulsa rally. Biden spoke about the President going to Texas for Juneteenth on the site of the race riot. Totally wrong. Trump did go to Texas, on June 11th. But Tulsa is in Oklahoma, not Texas. So he did not go to the site of the riot. And Juneteenth is on the 19th, not the 11th.

To Joe Biden’s credit, one may think his accurate information was true if he watched any so-called “credible” news on mainstream media.

Discombobulated Geraldo

Geraldo Rivera attempted to correct Joe Biden and say that Juneteenth was the day that the Emancipation Proclamation was signed. Again, the Emancipation was signed in 1862 then made effective in 1863. Juneteenth was 1865. And the whole purpose behind celebrating Juneteenth is the fact that slaves were informed of the proclamation for the first time in two and a half years.

Media Have An Axe To Grind

Most of the information that major news outlets and politicians get wrong can easily be researched. It doesn’t take much time at all. Maybe even call a person that has the scoop. Relying on television news, or even print news for that matter will leave you alone on the ledge more often than not.

  1. I think the 13th amendment freeing the slaves was ratified by the required number of states on December 6, 1865. So then everyone was definitely free. The emancipation proclamation only applied to the states in rebellion like ABL stated. I think there were 4 states in the Union that were slave states. Missouri, Maryland, Kentucky & West Virginia (which separated from Virginia when Virginia left). But there had been slaves in a lot of the north at the time of the revolution. I read somewhere that Slavery was not outlawed in Connecticut until the 1830s.
