Anne Holton, wife of failed vice presidential candidate Tim Kaine (D-VA), denounced the Declaration of Independence and Constitution as “fundamental in enshrining slavery,” according to Breitbart News.
Holton made the comments as Virginia Gov. Glenn Youngkin’s (R) new history standards were approved 5-3 by the Commonwealth’s Board of Education, upon which she sits.
“To an audience as inclusive as our Virginia is, you cannot reference the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution as ‘remarkable documents’ without also acknowledging that they [are] fundamental in enshrining slavery, and limiting the protections that they provided only to white property-owning men,” she said.
What disgusting anti-Americanism and historical stupidity. Those documents were actually fundamental in laying the groundwork to end slavery, but apparently that didn’t happen fast enough for Anne Holton.
Holton also served as Virginia’s Secretary of Education under former Gov. Terry McAuliffe (D), who tanked his own campaign against Youngkin by making anti-parent remarks regarding the education of the Commonwealth’s children.
The history standards were written at least in part to correct disinformation and anti-America propaganda injected into the curriculum through the use of the divisive, racist Critical Race Theory, because disinformation and anti-America propaganda are central to the Democrat agenda.
