Biden’s America! Biden Admin Officially Labels Constitution as “Harmful Content” – Wow!
The National Archives and Records Association has made a decision that is sure to make America into an even bigger laughingstock than we already are. Our nation’s founding documents, including the Constitution, now have a label that is supposed to scare people away. Apparently, these documents are now known as “harmful content”.
At first, we thought that this was an Onion post and we were prepared to laugh it up. That’s how bad things have gotten. Biden’s America only gets more and more ridiculous by the day. It is time to hide the kids from these scary documents. That’s what the government wants, evidently.
Millions of descriptions and digital copies of the permanent records of the United States federal government are stored in the catalog and web pages at the National Archives and Records Association. They describe some of these documents as being “some content that may be harmful or difficult to view.”
NARA also goes on to say that “some of the materials presented here may reflect outdated, biased, offensive, and possibly violent views and opinions.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 woke crowd will be pleased to know that NARA is “is committed to working with staff, communities, and peer institutions to assess and update descriptions that are harmful and to establish standards and policies to prevent future harmful language in staff-generated descriptions.” We love a good word salad, don’t you? NARA now functions as a gatekeeper for all of the English language.
Instead of devoting their time to more important things, such as disease prevention and control, they would rather carry on like this. The CDC is even getting in on the act, publishing their own guide to “non-stigmatizing language”. It’s nice to know that the pandemic is going so well. It must be, if these people have all of this time and energy to worry about these types of concerns.
Those who have been paying attention probably remember the Rotunda at the National Archives came under fire. The detractors believe that this building is “structurally racist”. Trigger warnings, safe spaces, you know the drill. The radical left is in on a never-ending mission to erase the history of this great nation. Why can’t we simply tell the whole story and let smart people figure it out for themselves?
The white European males of the time period was just as flawed as any humans. The keepers of these documents have also implied that they would like to tweak them. If you would like a further explanation of what they are talking about, the Archives.gov site has more:
“Some items may: reflect racist, sexist, ableist, misogynistic/misogynoir, and xenophobic opinions and attitudes;
be discriminatory towards or exclude diverse views on sexuality, gender, religion, and more;
include graphic content of historical events such as violent death, medical procedures, crime, wars/terrorist acts, natural disasters and more; demonstrate bias and exclusion in institutional collecting and digitization policies.”
This alert is not connected to any specific records, but appears at the top of the page while you are using the online Catalog (https://t.co/dwGmbXhjFP).

History is messy and it is violent. That’s not to say that we agree with the viewpoints of the past, far from it. It’s just reality. Things happened and now they are being discussed. That’s how history works. That does not matter in these instances. “Standards and policies” are now going to be placed on the language that is used:
“Examples include: informing users about the presence and origin of harmful content; revising descriptions and standardized sets of descriptive terms, supplementing description with more respectful terms, or creating new standardized terms to describe materials; researching the problem, listening to users, experimenting with solutions, and sharing our findings with each other; evaluating existing processes for exclusionary practices or institutional bias that prioritize one culture and/or group over another; making an institutional commitment to diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility.”
How much more insane is this going to get? We shudder to think…..
