Biden calls out Republicans for censoring historical past and fact, “The truth matters, notwithstanding what the other team is trying to hide the truth. No matter how hard some people try, we can’t just choose to learn what we want to know and not what we should know. ” pic.twitter.com/ej0JiIInvs

Biden mentioned, “I’ve been on this bridge before as vice president. As a candidate for president, before I was a senator, because history matters. And now I’m here as your president. The truth matters, notwithstanding what the other team is trying to hide the truth. No matter how hard some people try, we can’t just choose to learn what we want to know and not what we should know. We should learn everything, the good, the bad, the truth of who we are as a nation. And everyone should know the truth of Selma.”

Republicans like Ron DeSantis have been constructing their political manufacturers round censorship. Censorship within the library. Censorship within the classroom. Censorship of the curriculum. Democrats have but to undertake this censorship as a nationwide political problem.
President Biden’s remarks are important given the time and the place the place he made them. Republicans try to erase the the historical past of the Civil Rights motion and America’s historical past of discrimination and racism.
Hiding the reality isn’t an choice. An America that hides its historical past will probably be a weakened nation the place progress will stop.
