    Default GOP lawmaker who opposed Juneteenth holiday calls decision 'an easy no vote'

    One of the House Republicans who opposed legislation making Juneteenth a federal holiday described his decision as an “easy no vote.”


    The House passed the Juneteenth National Independence Day Act by a vote of 415 to 14 on Wednesday, one day after the Senate passed the legislation unanimously. President Joe Biden signed it into law on Thursday.


    South Carolina GOP Rep. Ralph Norman, one of the 14 Republicans who voted against the bill, gave two main reasons to explain his opposition.

    Norman was upset with the title, “Juneteenth National Independence Day Act,” because he took exception with the idea that there could be two independence days, he explained in a statement.





    Kentucky Rep. Thomas Massie and Texas Rep. Chip Roy both referenced the name of the bill as their reason for opposition.

    “This name needlessly divides our nation on a matter that should instead bring us together by creating a separate Independence Day based on the color of one’s skin," Roy said.

    Oh the irony

    America's future is bright, not white

    And it's not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy toward people who aren't like them or anti-immigrant sentiment

    The GOP is opposed to Democracy and the common decency of civilization at being overrun with a mob of treasonous, seditious and un American creatures. Democracy should be opposed to the GOP at condemning the entire lawless making and un Godly faction.
