National Archives Slaps ‘Harmful Content’ Warning On Constitution, All Other Founding Documents

They took down the statues of Robert E. Lee and other Confederate leaders.  They are changing the name of a Hall at Princeton since Woodrow Wilson, our FIRST Socialist President was also a racist (no surprise), San Fran tried to change the name of schools, and people have lost their jobs because they defended the Constitution.  Now the Constitution, the Bill of rights and the Declaration of Independence have been declared ENEMIED OF THE STATE by the Biden Administration.

“The National Archives Records Administration placed a “harmful content” warning on the Constitution, labeling the governing document of the United States as “harmful or difficult to view.” The warning applies to all documents across the Archives’ cataloged website, including the Bill of Rights and the Declaration of Independence.

“NARA’s records span the history of the United States, and it is our charge to preserve and make available these historical records,” the administration said in a statement. “As a result, some of the materials presented here may reflect outdated, biased, offensive, and possibly violent views and opinions. In addition, some of the materials may relate to violent or graphic events and are preserved for their historical significance.”

Literally, Biden has declared freedom, protections are biased and out dated.  Next he will be able to declare an end to gun ownership—since the Constitution is biased and out dated, close churches that oppose abortion, same sex marriage and believe in the Bible.  Why not—if the foundation of our rights have been declared HARMFUL, how can we enforce them?

National Archives Slaps ‘Harmful Content’ Warning On Constitution, All Other Founding Documents

By Haley Strack, The Federalist,  9/8/21   

The National Archives Records Administration placed a “harmful content” warning on the Constitution, labeling the governing document of the United States as “harmful or difficult to view.” The warning applies to all documents across the Archives’ cataloged website, including the Bill of Rights and the Declaration of Independence.

“NARA’s records span the history of the United States, and it is our charge to preserve and make available these historical records,” the administration said in a statement. “As a result, some of the materials presented here may reflect outdated, biased, offensive, and possibly violent views and opinions. In addition, some of the materials may relate to violent or graphic events and are preserved for their historical significance.”

The NARA, which is responsible for preserving and protecting documentation of American heritage, noted that so-called harmful historical documents could “reflect racist, sexist, ableist, misogynistic/misogynoir, and xenophobic opinions and attitudes; be discriminatory towards or exclude diverse views on sexuality, gender, religion, and more,” and “include graphic content of historical events such as violent death, medical procedures, crime, wars/terrorist acts, natural disasters and more.”

Along with committing to diversity and equity, the NARA said it would “[work] in conjunction with diverse communities, [and] seek to balance the preservation of this history with sensitivity to how these materials are presented to and perceived by users.”

This isn’t the first time the National Archives has catered to a leftist view of history. In June, the National Archives’ racism task force claimed that the Archives’ rotunda, which houses founding documents, is an example of “structural racism.” The task force also pushed to include trigger warnings around displays of the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights, which are all in the rotunda. 

The warning is a blanket statement atop all documents in the archived catalogs that links to a “Statement on Potentially Harmful Content.” 

As news of the website’s warning circulated on Twitter, the NARA issued a standard response to those concerned by the “harmful” label on the Constitution.

“This alert is not connected to any specific records, but appears at the top of the page while you are using the online Catalog. To learn more about why the alert about harmful language appears in our Catalog, please go to ‘NARA’s Statement on Potentially Harmful Content,’” the tweet said.

    Very simple…fire the person or persons responsible for doing this

  2. Rico Lagattuta says

    This is a misleading story. The true organization is “The National Archives AND Records Administration.” This is a totally different organization from the left trying to split Americans again! This is the National Archives Records Administration. No “AND” in the name.

  3. Richard Poirier says

    This is outrageous. It calls for massive demonstrations. The White House press should force Biden to condemn this assaultive attack on our foundational documents. He won’t, of course. But confronting him on this preposterous labeling will give the American people one more opportunity to see the depth of his treasonous mindset to be the ultimate malignant dictator.

  4. With the short time Biden and Harris have been in office and the slimmest of majority in both houses the Federal government has become the blame game.

    You do not need proof, all you need is accusations. But again the failed impeachments of Trump were the forecast of what the Democrats would do. The “political correctness” tidal wave is destroying unit readiness in the military. Remember the Supreme Court and accusations were defended because any woman should be believed. (Oh and the accuser was later proven to have lied)

    As far as the Radicalized Democrat Left is concerned, if anyone (regardless of fact) is offended by terms they need to be white washed out of existence. Context of times means nothing.

    But this again is the basis of Communism, and the rule of the National Socialist Party of Germany that led to WWII.

    If you voted for them you voted for the Kabul debacle and the antifa riots, and the BLM destruction because no one is entitled except those who “feel” offended. (forget the truth).

    You voted for them. You most likely will not recall Slick and his lies.

    Great column!
    Regarding your comment that the next step will be gun ownership, what many people believe will happen regarding the Second Amendment is that it will be extremely difficult to purchase ammunition. Joey & the Democrats (gee, doesn’t that sound like 1960s band?) know they can’t confiscate all the guns. So, they will just reduce/limit the ammunition that is available for the guns – using the same reasoning as placing a warning on our sacred founding documents. People will still be able to purchase all the guns they want, but they won’t be able to shoot them because there won’t be any ammo, or the ammo will be sooooo expensive. Either we stop this tyranny NOW or look back and regret that we didn’t do more than yell at cable news and post memes on Facebook.

  6. In other words they did not go back to the “original intent and understanding” of the Founders but placed their own prejudices and bias’s and came to the conclusion that they were absolute idiots and are still amazed that they have the jobs they do for their moronic conclusions.

    Patriot if that time is not here now, it is just around the corner. Be ready, be prepared to do those things that you have never done before but at this time you are either America’s Friend or that “Sunshine Patriot!”

    The season for talking is about over. Today’s government is NOT your friend!

  7. Otis Needleman says

    These people are idiots, pure and simple.

  8. Not at all surprising. The goal of the left is the complete erasure of the Constitution and replace it with a “central committee” that they control with undisputed authority. As a nation, we are soon at a junction. We can acquiesce and accept their undisputed authority or, reject them by any means necessary. The choice is ours and, it could be the last choice we freely make.

  9. Looks like the Marxist BLM has taken over not only schools, but the seat of goverment itself. This is not surprising, since We the People have allowed the incremental infiltration of Marxism in so many of our institutions. The Elites of the Great Reset must be jumping for joy. Yes, today our nation is indeed at a juncture. Yes, “it could be the last choice we freely make.” Here in CA we might have a glimpse of which way the future will go after the recall election.

  10. Brenda Torres says

    Democrats trying to Disassemble America and Reassemble it into the Socialist Country that they approve of and have Control over…
