Publisher’s Warning Label, US Constitution, Declaration of Independence, Wilder Publications
I hope and pray that what’s left of our free market economy remedies this sick situation.

“Publisher’s Warning Label: That Constitution and Declaration is No Longer Valid Thinking”
“A Virginia-based publisher has decided that the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution and other founding books are likely offensive and they want their readers to understand that these old documents are no longer valid ways of thinking. And so the publisher, Wilder Publications, has put a warning label on its reprints of America’s founding documents and books to shield American’s delicate sensibilities.
The warning label reads, “This book is a product of its time and does not reflect the same values as it would if it were written today. Parents might wish to discuss with their children how views on race, gender, sexuality, ethnicity, and interpersonal relations have changed since this book was written before allowing them to read this classic work.”
The warning labels appear on copies of the Declaration of Independence, Constitution, Thomas Paine’s Common Sense, the Articles of Confederation, and the Federalist Papers, as well as other founding books and documents the company reprints.
FoxNews was not able to elicit a comment from Wilder Publications and the webpage of the company seems to feature a lot of self-published type stuff, so big time it is not.
But, looking at the New Agie stuff the company prints, I’d say that we are dealing with a bunch of left-wingers that really do find America’s founding documents unacceptable. It is also pretty plain that they do not have the first grasp of what those very founding ideas mean or why they are so amazing.”

Wilder Publications also has a few listings of its founding documents on Amazon.com. You might enjoy reading the comments excoriating this company for its decision to add the warning label. You may even feel disposed to add you own to the mix, too.”

A review on Amazon:
“As a 28 Year Veteran of the U.S. Navy I am totally offended and repulsed by Wilder Publications “Warning Lable/Advisory”. If they ave a problem with these Important and Historical Documents WHY BOTHER TO PUBLISH THEM!!!!! Having found out about their attitude towards these Documents, I WILL NEVER KNOWINGLY BY ANYTHING FROM THIS COMPANY!!!!! I am VERY disappointed Amazon is carrying their products!!!! I will NEVER recommend anything this company produces!!!! I would have rated this but your rating doesn’t go into the MINUS territory!!!! Sincerely, W.F. LYNES, ATCS (U.S.N. Retired)”
