(Fox News) Leftists on Twitter don’t seem too inclined to celebrate Independence Day this year.
Ahead of the July 4th holiday, several prominent liberals on Twitter expressed their disgust for America and indicated they will not be celebrating our independence as a nation.
For most of them, the recent Supreme Court decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, which overturned Roe v. Wade, has sullied the celebration.
Left-wing members of news and entertainment media claimed that women in the country are no longer free as a result of the ruling, arguing there’s no point in July 4th this year. Some mentioned that former President Donald Trump and the January 6 Capitol riot ruined their holiday.
One of the less cautious tweeters of the bunch actually expressed a desire to “blow up” the country on its biggest holiday.
How can our nation celebrate “Independence Day” when the GOP Supreme “Court” just stripped women of the right to personal freedom?!

MSNBC contributor Dean Obeidallah complained that the Supreme Court ruined his holiday. He tweeted, “How can our nation celebrate ‘Independence Day’ when the GOP Supreme ‘Court’ just stripped women of the right to personal freedom?!”
In an earlier tweet, Obeidallah quoted famous abolitionist Frederick Douglass to convey his current disgust with America. He wrote, “Fredrick Douglass on July 4, 1852: ‘Your celebration is a sham; your boasted liberty, an unholy license; your national greatness, swelling vanity; your sounds of rejoicing are empty and heartless…your shouts of liberty and equality, hollow mockery.’”
On Friday, liberal author Don Winslow wrote, “Today is the anniversary of the Civil Rights Act and Monday is July 4th. And yet here we are in 2022 without basic civil and human rights or independence and fundamental freedoms for women.”
“Don’t think I can turn my thoughts to July 4 without my brain jumping to January 6,” wrote Business author and Twitter lefty Tom Peters.
TV personality Brandi Glanville tweeted, “I’m not celebrating Independence Day because I don’t like I live in a free country anymore.”
Conservatives are going to trample on human rights, then turn around and celebrate Independence Day weekend.
