Far-left Democrats have weaponized Juneteenth and it has resulted in violence during some of the celebrations.
We are seeing a lot of Black Power (communist) fists. It’s the return of the Black Panthers:
Juneteenth, often overlooked, is the celebration of the end of slavery in the United States marking when Texans were finally notified about the Emancipation Proclamation.

They are demanding liberation. The only people oppressing them are Democrats.
Rep. Cori Bush, a Squad member, decided to rile people up. She wrote in a tweet:
It’s Juneteenth AND reparations. It’s Juneteenth AND end police violence + the War on Drugs. It’s JuneteenthAND end housing + education apartheid. It’s Juneteenth AND teach the truth about white supremacy in our country. Black liberation in its totality must be prioritized.
Nothing she wrote in that tweet is accurate or justifiable.

VIOLENCE IN LONG BRANCH
A celebration gave way to rioting in Long Branch, New Jersey. Hundreds of people took to the streets in a Juneteenth celebration that quickly turned violent, the Lakewood Scoop reported.
Police in full riot gear had to be dispatched to the area in order to quell the unrest. The reasoning for the riot is unknown at this time.
I hope “brutally beating up white people in the street” doesn’t become a Juneteenth tradition

ANOTHER NJ ASSAULT
Spoiler: The perps were not white supremacists.
Juneteenth was just one more excuse for criminal behavior. It’s only going to get worse. https://t.co/moN6mBfybd
