Trump Supporters Triggered By Declaration Of Independence


TRUMP SUPPORTERS WERE NOT TOO
PLEASED AFTER NPR TWEETED OUT THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE
IN BITS AND PIECES. THIS IS A TRADITION FOR NPR WHO HAS BEEN
DOING IT WHO HAS BEEN READING OUT THE DECLARATION OF
INDEPENDENCE. SOME PEOPLE SAID THERE WAS SOME PROPAGANDA AND
SOME BIAS. LET’S GO TO TWEETS FOR THE REACTION RIGHT NOW. I
THINK WE HAVE ANOTHER TWEET. THEN MY FAVORITE, SOMEONE
RESPONDING- PEOPLE THOUGHT THAT THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE
WAS CALLING OUT CURRENT PRESIDENT TRUMP WHEN IT WAS
CALLING OUT KING GEORGE. THIS IS NOT THE FIRST TIME SOMETHING OF
THIS KIND HAS TAKEN PLACE. SOMEONE ELSE RAN INTO A SIMILAR
PROPAGANDA SCARED DURING THE RED SCARE. I THINK THIS IS KIND OF
AN INTERESTING STORY. THIS IS JUST PEOPLE NOT KNOWING THE
DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE OR JUST LOOKING FOR PROPAGANDA
AND SCARE TACTICS?>>JUST TO FINISH UP AT 1951
CASE, THEY WERE NOT ALONE BUT JOE MCCARTHY THE GUY DOING THE
RED SCARE SAID IT WAS – HE CONGRATULATED THE PEOPLE IN
MEDICINE FOR NOT SIGNING A PETITION AGREEING WITH THE
DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE AND THE BILL OF RIGHTS BECAUSE HE
SAID IT WAS PUT OUT BY A COMMUNIST EDITOR OF A COMMUNIST
NEWSPAPER. LET’S ENJOY THE IRONY OF THE DECLARATION OF
INDEPENDENCE BEING COMMUNIST. BACK TO TODAY, HERE WE ARE AGAIN
BECAUSE TRUMP SUPPORTERS CALLED THE DECLARATION OF
INDEPENDENCE QUOTE TRASH. OF COURSE THEY DIDN’T KNOW IT WAS
THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE.>>IT IS LIKE
TRYING TO FIND THE FIRST THOUGHT THAT MAKES SENSE IN ALL OF THIS. I THINK THIS
IDEA IS STUPID AND TERRIBLE BUT NOT FOR THE REASONS THESE PEOPLE
ARE OBJECTING TO IT. THAT WOULD BE SO FRUSTRATING IF YOUR PHONE
JUST KEPT GOING. THAT WOULD MAKE ME WANT TO UNSUBSCRIBE FROM
NPR’S TWITTER FEED. BUT THERE IS NO WAY YOU CAN GET MAD AT THEM
FOR COMMUNICATING THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE.>>IT IS A TRADITION FOR THEM. INSTEAD OF READING IT ON THE
RADIO, THEY ARE TWEETING IT OUT. A LOT OF PEOPLE GET
THEIR NEWS ON TWITTER. I THINK THIS MAKES SENSE.>>THEIR NEWS STRAIGHT FROM 1776.>>INSTEAD OF APOLOGIZING PEOPLE
WERE SAYING HOW MANY PEOPLE DO KNOW THE DECLARATION OF
INDEPENDENCE? IT IS LIKE CALLING THEMSELVES OUT A LITTLE BIT.>>IT IS NOT. HALF OF IT I
UNDERSTAND. IF YOU JUST SAW THAT BY YOURSELF YOU WOULD SAY WHAT
IS GOING ON HERE? BUT I WOULD NOT JUMP TO THE CONCLUSION THAT
THEY WERE REFERRING TO DONALD TRUMP AND TALKING ABOUT A PRINCE
WHO IS A TYRANT. AND IT SOUNDS OLD-SCHOOL. MAYBE I SHOULD
GOOGLE IT BEFORE I TWEET IN A RAGE. BUT IF IT WAS THE OBAMA
ADMINISTRATION I WOULD NOT HAVE ASSUMED THEY MEANT THE TYRANTS
WAS OBAMA. THESE GUYS TOOK IT PERSONALLY BECAUSE THEIR SENSE
IS THAT IS WHAT WE ARE DOING.>>I THINK THIS IS INDICATIVE OF
HOW PEOPLE PERCEIVE NEWS DELIVERING ORGANIZATIONS. IT’S
NOT THEY DISAGREE WITH – TAKEN ANY BIT OF INFORMATION AND LOOK
AT IT FOR WHAT IT IS. INSTEAD IT IS SOURCE FIRST. THEY KNOW NPR IS ON THE OTHER
TEAM, THEY ARE LIBERAL IN THE MINDS OF TRUMP SUPPORTERS. SO THEY LOOK TO DISAGREE WITH
EVERYTHING THAT NPR PUTS OUT. I THINK THAT IS THE DYNAMIC THAT
IS MOST TELLING.>>I AGREE. THIS REMINDS ME OF
PEOPLE BACKING INTO THEIR OWN CORNERS AND BEFORE THEY
CONTEXTUALIZE WHAT THESE STATEMENTS WERE – IT IS STRANGE
IT IS AN OLDER FORM OF ENGLISH. THEY AUTOMATICALLY DISAGREED
WITH IT AND TWEETED OUT A RESPONSE. A LOT OF THEM GOT PRETTY
EMBARRASSED AND HAD TO EAT THEIR OWN WORDS.>>I THINK IT IS GREAT TO GO BACK
AND REREAD THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE. IT IS PRETTY
AMAZING. IT IS LIKE ALL RIGHT, WE TRIED WITH THE SKY, WE TRIED
WITH KING GEORGE. HE KEEPS AVOIDING US EVERY TIME WE TRIED
TO CONTACT HIM. THEN YOU PEPPER IN LINES ABOUT HOW HE IS
INCITING VIOLENCE WITH THE MERCILESS INDIAN SAVAGES, WHICH
IS KIND OF A LEFT TURN.>>MAY BE A RIGHT TURN.>>IT IS GREAT TO GO BACK AND
REREAD THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE AND HOPEFULLY THE
NEXT STEP FOR THEM AND FOR A LOT OF PEOPLE WAS TO DO THAT AND SEE
WHERE IT GOT. AND MARK IF YOU THINK TRUMP IS THIS TERRIBLE
TYRANT – IF YOU READ THE GRAPES AGAINST KING GEORGE – TRUMP
DOESN’T SEEM THAT BAD.>>IT IS KIND OF A HIGH BAR.>>HE WAS OBSTRUCTING LAWS OF
NATURALIZATION, JUSTICE, CREATING JUDGES WHO ARE
INDEPENDENT TO HIS WELL.>>BY THE WAY THAT IS WHY SOME
OF THE PEOPLE THOUGHT IT WAS ABOUT TRUMP.>>THERE IS SOMETHING ABOUT
CALLING LEGISLATIVE BODIES TO STRANGE PLACES THAT ARE INTENDED
TO WEAR DOWN THE WILL OF THE PUBLIC. IT MAKES YOU THINK OF
CONDUCTING STATEMENTS IN WEIRD PLACES LIKE MARALAGO. ALSO LIKE
OVER TWITTER?>>MY FAVORITE WAS THE IDEA THAT
THIS WAS A CONSPIRACY BY NPR THEY LAUNCHED 29 YEARS AGO.>>YEAH.>>WE WILL PRETEND WE CARE ABOUT
THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE WERE 28 YEAR, AND WE WILL GET
TRUMP ON THE 29TH YEAR. AND THEY SAY NOW YOU ARE PUTTING THIS OUT
ON INDEPENDENCE DAY, I WONDER WHAT MESSAGE YOU ARE SENDING? IT
IS INDEPENDENCE DAY – THEY ARE SENDING THE MESSAGE THAT IT IS
INDEPENDENCE DAY WHICH IS NAMED AFTER THE DECLARATION OF
INDEPENDENCE.>>PEOPLE ARE NOT ALWAYS TRYING
TO MAKE YOU ANGRY, SOMETIMES IT IS INDEPENDENCE DAY SO THEY ARE
COMMUNICATING ABOUT THE DOCUMENT THAT TRIGGERED
INDEPENDENCE.>>ALSO THE UNITED STATES WAS
FOUNDED ON A REVOLUTION, ON SPEAKING TRUTH TO POWER. READING
FROM WHAT HAPPENED IN 1951? – WHY ARE WE SO AFRAID OF
ACKNOWLEDGING THAT AT OUR CORE HE WANTED TO REVOLTS ABUSE OF
POWER. I THINK IT IS BEAUTIFUL. I AM VERY HAPPY NPR HAS THIS
TRADITION BECAUSE WE TEND TO FORGET.>>CONSERVATIVES ARE SUPPOSED TO
BE IN FAVOR OF THAT. BUT DON’T TREAD ON ME, AND I HAVE THE
RIGHT, NOT GOVERNMENT. AGAIN IF YOU READ IT THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT
IT IS SAYING. BUT APPARENTLY IT MAKES YOU ANGRY THESE DAYS. I
CAN’T WAIT FOR THE NEXT FOURTH OF JULY WHEN THEY FLIP OUT OVER
INDEPENDENCE DAY THE MOVIE. WHAT IS WILL SMITH TRYING TO
SAY ABOUT TRUMP? IS HE CALLING HIM AN ALIEN?

  • Did anyone else hear her say "Trump users"….HAHAHAHA TYT reading random morons tweets is the only thing as dumb as your speakers.

  • Ignorance of the Declaration of Independence is a result of the systematic dismantling of American public schools over the last several decades. Republicans CANNOT be allowed to retain control, for they making America stupid again.

  • It saddens me that even today some people don't remember these documents. Even when I was in the military some service people did not know.

  • A lot of Trump supporters, whether consciously or unconsciously, hate America and the pillars of American society.

  • People have a knee jerk reaction to the founding fathers, Declaration of Independence, Bill of Rights, Constitution, yada yada yada because they feel they should. Questioning or condemning or criticizing those things is stepping into very bad territory if other people find out about you doing that. However, it is odd because most people don't really know or understand the contents of them. The were drafted during a time of enlightenment. Enlightenment doesn't last forever, it comes in short bursts. Therefore during times that are unenlightened or undemocratic (e.g. NOW or the McCarty era) many people are not really fond of the stuff inside the documents or the enlightened ideas of the founding fathers but have been conditioned to have an automatic positive opinion of said documents and founding fathers.

  • Way too many today have no idea of the existence, let along the content of the phamlet that spurred the revolution and ultimately the formal declaration of independence, Common Sense by Thomas Paine. How many Americans today even know of it let alone have read it. Just about every household in the colonies had a copy and knew it well because it made the case for revolution. Without it, there would have not been a revolution, at least not then. I am saddened by the fact that Thomas Paine never gets the recognition he deserves for our independence. It was his phamlet that inspired the colonies to revolt and gave those men the courage to write the DOI.

  • Whenever I read a comment from a Conservative Troll, I'm just going to remember this story.

    This story speaks perfectly about them. Low-Information Voters.

  • Who needs a declaration of independence?
    The only thing you have to know is that the 2nd amendment has to last forever and the 1st amendment is superfluous.

  • Uhlmann said Donald Trump’s a man who craves power because it burnishes his celebrity. To be constantly talking and talked about is all that really matters, and there is no value placed on the meaning of words — so what’s said one day can be discarded the next.”

  • i tell you… progressives and liberals… with all their separation of church & state, all men are created equal, & send me your tired huddled masses are a disgrace when true patriots carry confederate & nazi flags and stand up for russian puppets who seek taxation without representation. can IRONY make a person's head explode?

  • Im lmao'ing at all the people making fun of "Trump supporters" in the comments. Let's see… Do you know a single sentence in the Declaration of Independence? I'm waiting, liberals.

  • Yeah – Trump's low intelligence base and ignorant so, always making ill informed decisions that hurt America , like supporting Trump.

  • What's funny is watching beer slobbering welfare Republicans, who couldn't read a Denny's menu without the pictures, admonishing those on the left to read "the Constitution." Laugh, don't cry America.

  • Please! Anyone should recognize any part of either the Declaration of Independence or the Constitution.

  • I'm a proud liberal, like Washington, like Lafayette, like Montesquieu and I will support, always life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

  • I am shocked that people would not recognize it as the Declaration of Independence, even if they only looked at a small part of it in the middle. But I guess I shouldn't be. Most Fundamentalist Christians have not read the Bible, either. I can't count how many times I have heard Christians miss quote the Bible to support their view of things. They quote using the word "Help Mate" to indicate that the woman should be subordinate to the man in marriage. The Bible does not use "HELP MATE". It's HELP METE. "mete" means measured, that is to say "equal to the man".

  • I've seen enough stupid shit which triggers both sides.  If you think only one side is easily triggered by stupid shit, you are not being honest.

  • The Declaration of Independence was ratified July 4,1776,so that makes some sense to me.

  • This reminds me of my libertarian/leaning friends regarding taxes and socialized medicine. When I point out that the 16th Amendment gives congress the legal ability to levy an income tax, I usually receive either deafening silence or a quote from some founding father saying that he didn't like taxes. Occasionally, they'll bring up a point how we didn't need income tax prior to 1913, then I bring up all the things we have now that we didn't have prior to 1913 – Social Security, aircraft carriers, interstate highway system, NASA, the CDC, OSHA, CIA, etc. That's usually when they go back to their talking points about how taxes are theft etc. Or more silence.

    When I point out that the preamble to the US Constitution says, "…to promote the general welfare…" I get nothing but silence. Except once, when my friend try to make the point that socialized medicine didn't exist back then, therefore that statement could not have been used to justify socialized medicine. So I asked him if he thought the 1st and 4th Amendments should cover email since computers didn't exist back then. He never replied.

  • how to make the left mad win the election. The Young Turks are like CNN's autistic little brother

  • NPR even airs whole shows about the Declaration of Independence. They do something like this every year.

  • Most Trump supporters like most anti Trump people know little about the Declaration of Independence.  Modern day schools rarely teach civics and the average high school or young adult has little knowledge of the Bill of Rights let alone anything more complex.TYTs argument, although valid, could easily be turned around by the opposition for it is Americans in general who have failed our Constitution.

  • You have all been fooled! Example: Thomas Jefferson wrote the Declaration of Independence. He was a great lawyer. Instant gratification coming from the wine he drank. Receipts revealed he consumed 1,200 bottles of wine between 1822 and 1824. He allocated 200 acres in Monticello and was the official "wine advisor" to Washington. He, also, invented the swivel chair which most lawyers enjoy. Sometimes, I think the Declaration of Independence (err, alcohol dependence) was written by drunks who felt buzzed and free after a few drinks (several bottles) sitting in their comfy swivel chairs writing laws in their drunken stupors. What better place to pass out than in a swivel chair?

  • Well, trump is wearing a furry and shitty looking golden thing on his head. Maybe it confuses trump supporters.

  • trump supporters… they're like civilization of 1800's that jump through time, landed in 2000's. saw society and said "this is all wrong, what happen to our country?"

  • On July 2nd, Congress declared independence by adopting the Lee Resolution. John Adams wrote, in a letter to his wife, Abigail, "The second day of July, 1776, will be the most memorable epoch in the history of America. I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated by succeeding generations as the great anniversary festival…with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires, and illuminations…"

  • What people need to realize, is that republicans only know one part of the declaration of independence.
    The 2ND amendment is all republicans care about

  • Perhaps its time for a 2nd War of independence – "no taxation without representation" oh really??? How much of the US population is truly represented by those taxing them??? Big business and the rich are pretty well represented so let them pay the tax's.

  • It looks to me like NPR tweeted some irrelevant (since apparently Trump is not brought to mind by any readers) quotes from a historical document, a couple people took offense because calling Trump and his supporters Nazis was the media's favorite recent pastime, and then the Young Turks decided to run it as news because it was a slow day and they didn't feel like reporting why they're named after a genocidal movement. I know the left and the right like to cherry pick the worst examples from each other but this is misguided at absolute best and patronizingly pedantic at worst. Anyways if I got anything wrong, let me know, I haven't watched a shitty TYT video all the way through since their fake news about Pewdiepie.

  • Stop me if u think i am wrong. But i think we need to have the constitution, bill of right, and the declaration of independence taught in schools. From 1st grade to 12th. It seems tome that there are way too many americans who are not familiar with these documents. It seem to be a tragic common theme, in both social media, and mainstream media. As well as ordinary day to day lives of Americans. Even i can find serious fault with my own ignorance on these documents.

  • I'm not that old, but I was forced to memorize the preamble of the Declaration of Independence and the bill of rights in elementary school. Do they not do that anymore?

  • This is why the destruction of public education was the smartest move for conservatives throughout the decades. An uneducated populace is the easiest to rule. Smh

  • This is an example of how ignorant trump supporters are. They want to scream about th declaration or the constitution but yet they dont even know what it is not have they read it and understood it.

  • The US would likely look more like Canada if we had not started the revolution. Moreover plenty of lives would have been spared & slavery would have ended in 1833 sparing us another 30 years of slavery nvm a Civil War.

  • i love how the left tries using internet memes like "triggered" against the people who actually trigger them.

  • As a conservative, I love getting triggered, it gives me a chance to beat the liberal shit out of democunt beta males.

  • It's kind of sad how few of us actually read these historical documents. I'm included in that boat, by the way. So I'm not claiming to be better.

  • u cant brake it up in bits and pices for its full power to truly hear the voice of the document it must be red frome start to end

  • And you guys at TYT get legitimately triggered by the Bill of Rights. Namely the 1st and 2nd Amendment. And seriously, what makes you think these people were Trump supporters?

  • Unfortunately, the first reaction from 'Conservative' supporters isn't, 'Wait, could there be truth to any of these statements'? But, instead, it's 'Leftist propaganda! Cenk takes money from leftist groups, why won't they tell the truth about 'XYZ' liberals?' Trump and the Republicans are like unto a new religion, facts won't dissuade the 'faithful' because they have 'Faith'!…

  • Actually at the 1951 event it was the Actor Wentworth Miller, but he'd taken his ship from legends of tomorrow to sign at the event.

  • THEY CHOSE TRUMP FOR A REASON CAUSE HE KNOW
    BUSINESSES PLUS JOBS
    HE PROMISE ALOT OF STUFF
    TO THE VOTERS NOW HES
    IN OFFICE YOU SEE HOW HE
    REALLY IS PRAY ✌ OUT

  • I came to this video attempting to find interview of conservative rallies where people are intolerant and unwilling to hold a civil conversation. Sadly I have found the the “tolerant” left is the only group besides white nationalists, that act truly intolerant of said discourse. It is really sad to see this as someone who isn’t a Trump supporter, but also not a democrat or a leftist. Democrats and the left have a lot of work to do and need to start focusing on issues that actually matter. This is why Trump won the presidency. Also it is sad the TyT doesn’t realize that Trump is not a tyrant because he cannot enact anything on his own terms. Trump is a huge douche and a horrible person.. But the left provides no better alternative and no care for issues that are important. They only care about their feelings…

  • Yet the left doesn't really support the declaration or the bill of right such as the first amendment when it upsets you

  • Who the hell are all those morons who never took a government call, civics class or sociology class? How the hell did any of them graduate high school? Oh yeah, that's right, they don't go to school.

  • trump and republiCONS are traitors to our great country and terrorists to our environment.
    Make America great again by making trump a one term president and never voting republiCON ever again for any office.
