Biden administration places warning label on Constitution, Declaration

By Thomas Catenacci

Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich condemned the National Archives Records Association’s (NARA) decision to label documents with a “harmful language” alert.

Brnovich demanded that NARA immediately remove the warning labels from documents including the Constitution, Declaration of Independence and Bill of Rights, in a Sept. 10 letter to the agency first obtained by the Daily Caller News Foundation. The warning labels only serve to further divide Americans, the attorney general said.

“This is shameful action from the National Archives, and the misguided ‘alerts’ should be taken down immediately,” Brnovich wrote to U.S. Archivist David Ferriero. “There is nothing ‘harmful’ about our founding documents. These inspired writings governed the formation of our new country in the late 18th Century and provided the roadmap for it to grow into the greatest nation in history.”

Brnovich added that his family escaped communism to come to the U.S. and that his family wouldn’t be where they are today without the “guiding lights” of the Constitution and Declaration of Independence.

In July, NARA announced that it would begin placing the labels on millions of archived documents. The agency explained that historical documents may reflect “outdated, biased, offensive, and possibly violent views and opinions.”

But the agency has also stated that the warning labels don’t specifically target the Constitution or Declaration of Independence.

“Harmful Content Warning is a general warning and is not connected to the U.S. Constitution or to any specific records,” NARA said in a statement to Fox News earlier this week.

However, the label remains on the Constitution, Declaration of Independence and Bill of Rights.

Shortly after taking office, President Joe Biden signed an executive order asking all federal agencies to better promote racial equity. In response, NARA assembled a report that recommended adding the labels in addition to various other suggestions to make the agency more inclusive.

“As the home of this nation’s founding documents—the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights—we have a special responsibility to the ideals that all people are created equal, that all people have equal protection under the law, and that there is a common good that includes us all,” Ferriero said in a statement after the report was released.

“Although we as a nation have fallen short at times, these are the goals we aspire to as Americans, for all Americans, and the ideals that drove the work of the task force,” he continued.

  1. The Colonies were under the rule of Great Britain, of George III when the Declaration of Independence was written. It is validly classified as a revolutionary document specifically stating grounds for rebellion, even inciting it. The Constitution defined our national government, delegating to its branches powers and responsibilities. The Bill of Rights protected citizens against overreach of government. Back to the Declaration of Independence: When a government, e.g. that of Joe Biden, becomes despotic and unresponsive to the will of the people, does not fulfil its responsibilities and is not restrained by the Bill of Rights the terms of that declaration do, indeed, become dangerous to that government. To paraphrase: “The history of of the present Progressive executive, Joe Biden, is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny (Biden said that of ruling by executive orders) over these United States.” Joe’s made fifty seven of those tyrannical executive orders so far.

  2. We have the government that the Founder’s warned us about.
    THIS is why they gave us our Second Amendment.
    They knew they’d be a day when our own government went toxically poison… we are certainly there.

  3. That POS fake president needs to be put away along with all the other slugs from the swamp and throw away the key he is destroying America. He’s nothing but a blowhard, and the other scums are telling him what to say and do.. They all are in the back pocket of George Soros. HE is the one who wants to destroy America. These people need to be tried for treason and then SHOOT !!!

  4. An 9 month attack on EVERYTHING “American” – since and including our founding fathers,
    our Constitution rewritten!!..
    We don’t own our bodies, we don’t own our things, we don’t own our money
    We no longer can manage our our families, our Children’s Education!

    We can expect no Liberty except that bestowed by the Biden handlers – whoever they are

  5. I wonder, does labeling these documents as having harmful language make them ineligible for teaching them in the school system? Always seems to be an ulterior motive and that was the only one we could think of.

  6. This just goes to show we have “cancer ” within our Government, they try to bury our
    history the good and the bad and then try to undermind our founding documents.

    And people wonder why we had a revolution, did we learn from our mistakes apparently
    not, as you can see elections have consequences, and today we are seeing it first hand.
