‘Read a history book, Bill’: Science Guy Nye gets US history education after flubbing ‘Juneteenth’ facts

If only Bill Nye would stick to science — oh, wait, he gets that wrong too…

The “Science Guy” took to Twitter on Sunday to mark “Juneteenth,” a feel good liberal fabrication loose on historical facts that has become a federal holiday, commemorating the end of slavery in the United States based on Union Army general Gordon Granger announcing on June 19, 1865, the end of the Civil War and the freedom of all enslaved people in Galveston, Texas. Of course, the Emancipation Proclamation officially freed all enslaved people in the South in 1863, but enforcement was slow to come in all areas.

Interestingly, Nye is holding up a copy of the U.S. Constitution — this taking on special meaning given that the radical left’s ultimate goal is to do away with a document they say was written by a bunch of slave-owning white men.

“The United States we know today was built with the labor of enslaved Black Americans. The last were not freed (officially) until 19 June 1865. Let us celebrate— and never forget,” he tweeted.

Nye is a perfect encapsulation of elite liberal kneeling at the alter of white guilt to show contrition for sins long past. Their actions being key in the application of critical race theory, which posits that America is an inherently racist nation and that all white people are oppressors at heart — this being the foundation for reparations, which isn’t too far off.

The only problem is, much like the historically challenged 1619 Project, ‎which earned Nikole Hannah-Jones the gift of a Pulitzer Prize, the truth is not on their side.

Social Media users were only too happy to point this out to Nye, as seen here:
