Hate Trump has become Hate America

Media provides moral ballast for the statue smashers 

“Never before has a speech extolling America’s virtues and the marvels or the nation’s heroes played to such poor — and completely dishonest — reviews.”Rich Lowry in National Review on the mainstream news media’s “news” coverage of President Trump’s Independence Day speech.

“At Mt. Rushmore, Trump uses Fourth of July celebration to stoke a culture war” — Los Angeles Times

“Trump uses Mount Rushmore speech to deliver divisive culture war message” New York Times

“Trump pushes racial division, flouts virus rules at Rushmore” — Associated Press

“At Mount Rushmore, Trump exploits social divisions, warns of ‘left-wing cultural revolution’ in dark speech ahead of Independence Day” — Washington Post

“When many Americans are wrestling with the racist misdeeds of the country’s heroes and confronting an unrelenting pandemic with surging cases, their commander-in-chief is attempting to drag America backward — stirring fear of cultural change while flouting the most basic scientific evidence about disease transmission.” — CNN

Excerpted from the Wall Street Journal:

Progressives deride Trump’s defense
of founding principles

President Trump delivered one of the best speeches of his Presidency Friday evening [07-03-2020] at Mount Rushmore, and for evidence consider the echo-chamber headlines above. The chorus of independent media voices understands that Mr. Trump is trying to rally the country in defense of traditional American principles that are now under radical and unprecedented assault. …

Divisive? … I was only divisive if you haven’t been paying attention to the divisions now being stoked on the political left across American institutions. Mr. Trump had the temerity to point out that the last few weeks have seen an explosion of “cancel culture—driving people from their jobs, shaming dissenters, and demanding total submission from anyone who disagrees.”

Describing this statement of fact as “divisive” proves his point.

•   Newspaper editors are being fired over headlines and op-eds after millennial staff revolts.

•   Boeing CEO David Calhoun last week welcomed the resignation of a communications executive for opposing — 33 years ago when he was in the military — women in combat.

•   The Washington Post ran an op-ed this weekend urging that the name of America’s first President be struck from Washington and Lee University. …

On Madison’s Capitol Square 07-02-2020

Together with literally thousands of others around the country they represent precisely what Mr. Trump describes — a left-wing cultural revolution against traditional American values of free speech and political tolerance. And he called for Americans not to cower but to oppose this assault:

“We must demand that our children are taught once again to see America as did Reverend Martin Luther King, when he said that the Founders had signed ‘a promissory note’ to every future generation. Dr. King saw that the mission of justice required us to fully embrace our founding ideals. . . . He called on his fellow citizens not to rip down their heritage, but to live up to their heritage.”

Contrast that with the New York Times’s 1619 project, which derides America’s founding in 1776 and replaces it with a history that distills the country into a slave-owning enterprise that remains racist to the core. Who is really stoking division and a culture war?

If we’re canceling everything with a racist history, why is the Democrat(ic) party still around?

  1. I’ve said it before, it’s time to say it again…

    All President Trump has to do is open his mouth on any topic at any time and the political left will condemn whatever he says.

    Trump needs to continuously state unwavering support for the United States Constitution, do the things necessary to support the Constitution of the United States and the rule of law across the United States of America, and hold a very firm line against the totalitarian fascists of the resistance; if the political left want’s to oppose the President then this will FORCE the political left to condemn supporting the Constitution of the United States, condemn doing the things necessary to support the Constitution of the United States and the rule of law, and openly support the subversion and sedition from the totalitarians of the resistance.

    The political left hates Presidential Trump so much that they’re willing to oppose anything he supports.

    This Presidential campaign is going to be “fun”.

        That’s exactly why I use the word totalitarian over and over again when talking about these social justice fools. These fools are cannon fodder for the political left’s transparent efforts to grab more power while stepping over the bloody corpse of the warriors that were suckered into giving their lives for a faux cause they were brainwashed into believing exists.

        These social justice warriors have shown us beyond a shadow of doubt that they’re totalitarian minded, they’re adapting the tactics of fascist in the early 20th century, they rationalize their every word and every action, their anarchists, they are engaging in sedition and subversion and they’re completely, utterly, and totally morally bankrupt. I think these fools actually want blood in the streets and eventually every dog, regardless of how well it’s trained, will lash out with unfettered violence when it’s backed into a corner and forced to fight. Social justice warriors are depending their lives upon the rational non-violent thinking of their opposition so they can dominate the population with their bigoted totalitarianism but that calm won’t last forever.

        These social justice warriors keep pushing and pushing and eventually that thin wall of civil opposition to their insane movement will crumble and these “warriors” will not like the result. When those they oppose choose to “cry havoc, and let slip the dogs of war” the wailing cries of the fallen social justice warriors in the streets calling for their mommies will fill the air and their blood will fill the gutters on the sides of the same streets they try to dominate with their tactics, when it gets to that point it’s quite probable that there will be no quarter. If that sounds like a bold projection of possible future events, you’re right but let me ask you this; what do these social justice warrior imbeciles think will happen when they push a very high percentage of the roughly 393 million firearm owners in the USA into a corner and force them to either fight or give up the United States and cower in fear to their totalitarian rule. I think our history has shown us just how violent people can get when they are backed into a corner and have to lash out with unfettered violence to maintain the integrity of these United States of America.

        • I know which side of this I stand.

        • The totalitarians know which side of this they stand.

        • Anyone that doesn’t agree with the totalitarians or doesn’t actively promote their views is considered an enemy of their cause. People like that imbecile lady pictured above want their opposition dead, these people are heard saying they hope their opposition gets COVID-19 and others are heard saying much much worse.

        • Does everyone else know where they stand; if not, choose now and prepare for the worst. If the worst doesn’t happen and these lunatics back down, that’s great!

    Brudder Blaska,

    Thanks for linking up the transcript of President Trumps excellent speech. It was one of his best ever, and of course the hive-minded, hypocritical #GetTrump media poo-pooed. They must’ve heard a different speech than I did, or, maybe their tin-foil hats distorted the signal.

    Trump even dared to say America was “founded on Judeo-Christian principles” with the family “the bedrock of American life,” where “every child, of every color, … born and unborn, … is made in the holy image of God.”

    No wonder why Godless Lefties hated it.

    In his forthright way, he fingered a “new far-left fascism that demands absolute allegiance. If you do not speak its language… recite its mantras and follow its commandments, then you will be censored, banished, blacklisted, persecuted and punished. It’s not going to happen to us…”

    BOOM!!!

    No other President or politician allegedly on our side in my lifetime ever dared to directly indict and damn the dystopian Democrat Party and the Leftist/Progressive/Globalist agenda for their record of pain, misery and destruction and for warning about the consequences should they succeed. Not even Ronald Reagan.

    Actually, Trump just declared the Proglibocrat Party, and the totalitarian tyrannical thugs, willing accomplices and co-conspirators in it to be an “Evil Empire.” It’s not hyperbole either. His speech was as factual an indictment of what they have done and intend to do and he essentially laid down the marker of what amounts to “over my dead body.”

    Trump may not be an articulate slick orator, but he certainly speaks American.
    People love him for his unbridled optimism in making America Great Again.

    Bless you brudder, and God bless America.

    So Fox News isn’t mainstream media? Instead of always blaming the left, you should start calling out trump for all the stupid tweets and claims that he makes. An hour later they are deleted and walked back by some poor staffer charged with saving his a$$. The virus will one morning disappear, a miracle, hoax, more bleach in your diet. These statements aren’t wasted by the media. Joe S. murdered an aide, good people on both sides. Take an honest look at how trump has divided this nation. No amount of flag waving, bible thumping nonsense can reverse all the 1000’s of lies and half-truths he has puked out in front of the cameras. If we cut back on testing we will have less cases. HUH? Tell that to Texas and Fld. The hopes and dreams that trump will somehow become this great leader of the free world are long gone and the country is responding accordingly.

      Speaking of another front on the culture wars, this one a few miles north of Madison in COLUMBUS, where officials will decide on whether to remove the statue of COLUMBUS after whom their town is named. Apparently, this was started by a 15-year old who, no doubt inspired by the mayhem in Madison, decided that the statue needs to come down.We’ve apparently reached a point where supposedly responsible adults in charge of our local and state governments are now taking their marching orders from children and spoiled millenials.(Perhaps the kid in Columbus has dreams of becoming the next Greta Thunberg.)

    CNN, NYT, and such are off their rockers. Dark and divisive? Huh? This was definitely the best speech of his presidency, a speech of unity and American pride, and one that I truly believe energized his base. I wasn’t a huge Trump fan when he was first elected, but the man has grown on me. Look past his crassness (he’s an outsider who wasn’t groomed for politics) and you see that what he’s accomplished in a short period of time despite the non-stop attacks coming from every direction, is pretty darned amazing.

          Yes, Yes, YES!!!

          That story is a perfect example; it was parroted in much the same gaslighting manner across the USA and the public ate it up as if the racism connotations were “fact” and you won’t change their minds now, they will just claim it’s a racism cover up.

          I personally don’t trust a damn thing that comes out of NPR, ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, MSNBC, New York Times, etc, etc or any other transparently left leaning major media outlet; for that matter I don’t trust Fox News much these days either, it’s just an attempt to counterbalance the left’s huge media monopoly.

          That said; the left’s media is truly evil! These people start everything with their predefined narrative and then these evil people, that are trying to hide behind the title of journalist or journalism, knowingly manipulate the information to support their predefined narrative NOT the truth and lie straight to our faces with their gaslighting. These evil people are continuously and consciously trying to manipulate the public with their constant gaslighting. These evil people have earned the title of “enemy of the people” and all the negative connotations that go along with it. These evil people will eventually get their well deserved comeuppance.
