Trump Salutes America, Triggering Leftists

The president honors America’s military in the Independence Day celebration.

It wasn’t all about President Donald Trump, as many Leftmedia talkingheads bitterly alleged. Rather, Trump’s “Salute to America” Independence Day parade was a celebration of our country. In his speech, Trump highlighted our nation’s history as one founded and grounded in the defense of Liberty. “It is the epic tale of a great nation whose people have risked everything for what they know is right and what they know is true,” Trump declared. “It is the chronicle of brave citizens who never give up on the dream of a better and brighter future. And it is the saga of 13 separate colonies that united to form the most just and virtuous republic ever conceived. On this day, 243 years ago, our Founding Fathers pledged their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor to declare independence and defend our God-given rights.”

Trump specifically noted the essential role America’s military continues to play in both securing and maintaining our Liberty: “Today, just as it did 243 years ago, the future of American Freedom rests on the shoulders of men and women willing to defend it.” And far from being divisive, as so many on the Left contend, Trump’s message was one of unity as he declared, “As long as we stay true to our cause, as long as we remember our great history, as long as we never stop fighting for a better future, then there will be nothing that America cannot do. We will never forget that we are Americans and that the future belongs to us. We share one home, one heart, and we are all made by one Almighty God.”

But being a proud American today is a bridge too far for many Democrats, who have capitulated to the leftist narrative that erroneously blames America for much of the world’s problems rather than recognizing the U.S. as the number-one proponent of Liberty and justice. And due to their Trump Derangement Syndrome, Democrats have fallen into expressing only antagonism toward the pro-America message.

Finally, U.S. Air Force veteran John Cooper, writing for The Daily Signal, summed it up well when he observed that the “‘Salute to America’ is about one thing: reminding our nation of those who stand vigilant in defense of our liberty. It’s about honoring those who have given, and continue to give, so much for our nation. And it’s about remembering why we can celebrate this day year after year.”
