Today, Thursday June 18th, a news outlet in Pennsylvania, WTAJ News, ran the headline, “Gov. Wolf, Pennsyvania honors Juneteenth National Freedom Day.”
HARRISBURG, Pa. (WTAJ) — This Friday is the first anniversary of Pennsylvania declaring June 19 as Juneteenth National Freedom Day in Pennsylvania. Governor Wolf is encouraging Pennsylvanians to reflect on the importance of the state holiday and the continued need for a fair and just society.
“This Juneteenth, people across Pennsylvania and the world will celebrate this important day of independence,” said Governor Wolf. “This is a moment to honor African American history and reflect on how each of us can promote equality, liberty and justice for all people.”
National Director of the Knights Party, based in Harrison Arkansas, Thomas Robb said, “It’s political leaders like Democratic Governor Tom Wolf that America doesn’t need, or shouldn’t have in office. To promote a celebration of black history in White America while we have blacks burning cities and looting stores is a slap in the face to every proud White American. Our White history is being erased, while we have political leaders like Governor Wolf promoting black history is inexcusable.”
