Unlikely as it is, could someone at the RNC had an awakening from being comatose after a brain injury caused by being slammed in the head by a MAGA mallet and, like a patient of Oliver Sacks, come to differentiate MAGA unreality from actual reality, and wanted to honor the slaves and descendants of slaves who founded Liberia?
This apparent sloppy error by the RNC made the news yesterday. For example as explained in a HUFFPOST article:
RNC Accidentally Celebrates Wrong Flag In Awkward Fourth Of July Message.
Oh ye of little faith, maybe this wasn't a mistake at all. Perhaps it was a shout-out on the day we celebrate our independence to the Black former slaves from the United States and Caribbean who founded Liberia.
Dare I say that many American couldn't locate Liberia on a map of Africa and there's a good chunk of MAGA's who don't even know it's an African country.
It's even less likely very many Americans, but especially those in states where students aren't taught about the history of slavery here (part of the anti-woke bogeyman of letting students learn about critical race theory or CRT), even know the following (from Wikipedia):
Liberia began in the early 19th century as a project of the American Colonization Society (ACS), which believed black people would face better chances for freedom and prosperity in Africa than in the United States. Between 1822 and the outbreak of the American Civil War in 1861, more than 15,000 freed and free-born African Americans, along with 3,198 Afro-Caribbeans, relocated to Liberia. Gradually developing an Americo-Liberian identity, the settlers carried their culture and tradition with them. Liberia declared independence on July 26, 1847, which the U.S. did not recognize until February 5, 1862.
Liberia was the first African republic to proclaim its independence and is Africa's first and oldest modern republic. Along with Ethiopia, it was one of the two African countries to maintain its sovereignty during the Scramble for Africa. During World War II, Liberia supported the United States war effort against Germany, and in turn received considerable American investment in infrastructure, which aided the country's wealth and development. President William Tubman encouraged economic and political changes that heightened the country's prosperity and international profile; Liberia was a founding member of the League of Nations, United Nations, and the Organisation of African Unity.
How many non-Liberian Americans will be aware of, let alone pause to remember, the Liberian Independence Day on July 26th? There's a version of their national anthem on this website:
Too many Americans refuse to recognize that there are citizens of other countries who observe with reverence the formation of their country.
Could someone at the Republican National Committee have had an awakening from their anti-woke catatonic stupor worthy of a chapter in the often republished non-fiction book "Awakenings" by the late brilliant neurologist Oliver Sacks? (The book was also made into a movie staring Robert DeNiro and playing a character based on Dr. Sacks. Robin Williams.)
