U.S.’ Founding Documents Flagged

National Archives and Records Administrations employees concerned about “Charters of Freedom” designation.

The National Archives has placed warning labels on the digital display of the U.S. Constitution and the Declaration of Independence, warning they may contain ”harmful language” that could offend viewers’ senses.

The new labels come amidst a larger battle over political correctness inside the government’s main historic preservation agency. New documents surfaced last week showing that about 800 National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) employees from across the country attended a town hall meeting of the Archives’ Task Force on Racism on May 11 and discussed deleting the “charters of freedom” descriptions for the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and the Declaration.

The reasoning for this move was that the documents did not “result in freedoms for everyone” initially, the new memos show. The task force also argued that the Archives’ rotunda, which houses some of America’s most prized  historical artifacts, was an example of “structural racism.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For officials of the National Archives as they seek to maintain, present and preserve U.S. history.
  • For government bureaus and agencies as they attempt to navigate political correctness and the history of racism.
