The “Resistance” gave us dire warnings that if America elected an authoritarian president such as Donald Trump, we would see tanks in the streets of our nation’s capital. On Thursday, their prophecies came true. NOT.
Some on the Left actually do believe Trump to be an authoritarian, even though he has fought to give power back to the individual at all turns, while 2020 Democrat hopefuls openly spew policies that demand more government control over our lives.
One such bonehead is Harvard Law professor Laurence H. Tribe who took to social media to tweet a photo of tanks arriving for Trump’s “Salute to America” declaring, “The resemblance to days before Tiananmen Square is chilling.”
This man is a Harvard Law professor! Surely he must be intelligent enough to know that Tiananmen Square, in Beijing, China, is where the communist Chinese government attacked a series of pro-democracy protests with tanks and troops in a military action that ended in a number of deaths of innocents that people still don’t know, but estimate to be between several hundred to several thousand. The comparison is idiotic, and Harvard should revisit his employment contract for making such an analogy.
Yesterday, we reported on how Hollywood elites were triggered by Trump’s 4th of July celebration, and now that we’ve survived as a republic after witnessing the events that took place in D.C. we can safely say that this was the most moronic of freak-outs the Left has had to date. And that’s really saying something.
Democrats and leftists everywhere said the president’s decision to insert himself into the 4th of July celebrations was virtually unprecedented, and as usual, they don’t know what the heck they’re talking about. Trump isn’t the first U.S. president to give a major speech on the 4th of July. President Harry S Truman delivered an Independence Day speech in front of the Washington monument. Presidents Woodrow Wilson, John F. Kennedy, Gerald Ford, Bill Clinton, and George W. Bush all gave Fourth of July speeches from Independence Hall in Philadelphia. President Ronald Reagan – who I like to refer to as Ronaldus Magnus – gave his 4th of July speech from the deck the aircraft carrier USS John F Kennedy, that was anchored right in front of the Statue of Liberty.
But, for those who live in the history of now, we’ve never had a president inject himself into Independence Day celebrations before Trump.
In the real world, we can now say that there is a bit of a tradition of presidents giving speeches on Independence Day, and Trump’s speech elevated the tradition to new heights on Thursday.
Democrats, who politicize everything, complained that the president was politicizing the 4th of July, while he did no such thing. Rather, Trump gave an incredible presidential address, where he celebrated American greatness, and contrary to the lies told by leftists, he didn’t make the day about himself at all. Trump made the day about America, and we the people, and how we the people over our history have made this country the greatest nation ever conceived throughout all of history. We changed the world for the better.
“As we gather this evening, in the joy of freedom, we remember that we all share a truly extraordinary heritage,” Trump said. “Together, we are part of one of the greatest stories ever told… the story of America.”
The president took the country down Memory Lane, relating the story of America from our fight for independence to the struggle to end slavery and secure women’s right to vote, on through the civil rights era. Trump spoke of many great Americans who “defined our national character” from the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. to Frederick Douglass, Harriet Tubman, and Jackie Robinson. He spoke of our great inventors and explorers, from Lewis and Clark to Thomas Edison, Alexander Graham Bell, the Wright brothers, Amelia Earhart and our astronauts in the space program. The president vowed, “we will plant the American flag on Mars” because “for Americans, nothing is impossible.”
Of course, the Left now has egg on its collectivist face, and they will never give this president an ounce of credit for his love of this country and her people, but we know. Americans throughout the land know how much Donald Trump loves America, her story, and her people, so who needs leftists? We the people will continue to ponder what all the fuss was about. Democrats and leftists predicted America would witness Trump using the celebration as a partisan campaign event, and once again they underestimated him. Instead, those who tuned in to watch the event live saw President Trump deliver a passionately unifying speech that championed America’s accomplishments while admiring the bravery and commitment we get from our brave men and women in uniform who serve to protect us and our freedoms. It was all about us, our country, and the good that both have achieved for the world.
God Bless America!!
