The Double Standard & Hypocrisy of the LEFT … President Trump Calls for Parade and Democrats Scoff … Yet Schumer Did the Sane thing in 2014 and Crickets from the MSM (VIDEO)
OH THE NASTY HYPOCRISY OF DEMOCRATS AND THEIR FAR LEFT MSM MOUTH PIECES …
Just curious, what is wrong with a little patriotism? In a January 18, 2018 meeting President Donald Trump expressed his wish to hold a military parade like the one he witnessed in France with President Macron on Bastille Day. The NY Times reported that Mr. Trump said he told President Emmanuel Macron of France that he was considering the idea of a similar spectacle in the United States. But the liberal MSM appears to be against such a parade. However, as you will learn to borrow a phrase from John Kerry … The LEFT for for it before they were against it.
Liberal media makes fun of Trump’s military plan
However, Democrats and their liberal media hacks scoffed and made fun of the idea making reference to Trump as a dictator. On MSNBC’s the Morning Schmo, Mika and Joe said that countries like the Soviet Union and North Korea do things like this. They called it autocratic, among other derogatory things. Imagine that. But I thought liberals like the French?
BUT THE LIBERAL MEDIA HAD NO ISSUES WHEN DEMOCRAT SENATOR CHUCKY SCHUMER OF NEW YORK CALLED FOR A MILITARY PARADE IN 2014. Where was the criticism and outrage from the LEFT then? It all goes back to the LEFT’s never ending attacks on President Trump no matter what. Even when the LEFT has said the same thing. What, does the Left not understand there is this thing called Google and other search engines that record all that they say and folks that take the time to find out the truth? Once again Schumer and the LEFT look like the frauds they truly are.
Chuck Schumer calling for a Military Parade in 2014
Democratic Rep. Jackie Speier called Trump’s idea of a military parade “authoritarian,” while Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse compared the practice to something that would be done by North Korea.
But in 2014, Schumer suggested that New York’s Ticker Tape Parade be used to honor the military.
“Now as military operations in Afghanistan draw to a close, some are calling for the Ticker Tape Parade to honor those who fought in the war on terror,” a reporter explained in a video posted to YouTube.
“After all, these men risked their lives to protect us,” Schumer said at the time. “They experienced terrible trial and tragedy along the way.”
Pearl Harbor Day 2017 … December 7th, 1941, a Date That Will forever Live in Infamy …
Today marks the 76th anniversary of the day the United States was suddenly and deliberately attacked the Empire of Japan and the United States would never be the same. We remember those brave men and women that died that fateful day. And we honor those that survived and fought on to defend the United States, freedom and liberty. The reprehensible and treacherous sneak act unified a country and awoke a sleeping giant that provided the resolve to win a war against the evil Axis. It was that resolve, leadership and focus on the enemy that enabled the United States and its Allies to victory. God bless all those who lost their lives on that fateful day.
We give thanks, praise and remember those from Our Greatest generation who made the ultimate sacrifice 76 years ago today. The Japanese did infact awaken a sleeping giant and America showed its great resolve.
Yesterday, Dec. 7, 1941 – a date which will live in infamy – the United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked by naval and air forces of the Empire of Japan.
The United States was at peace with that nation and, at the solicitation of Japan, was still in conversation with the government and its emperor looking toward the maintenance of peace in the Pacific.
Indeed, one hour after Japanese air squadrons had commenced bombing in Oahu, the Japanese ambassador to the United States and his colleagues delivered to the Secretary of State a formal reply to a recent American message. While this reply stated that it seemed useless to continue the existing diplomatic negotiations, it contained no threat or hint of war or armed attack.
It will be recorded that the distance of Hawaii from Japan makes it obvious that the attack was deliberately planned many days or even weeks ago. During the intervening time, the Japanese government has deliberately sought to deceive the United States by false statements and expressions of hope for continued peace.
The attack yesterday on the Hawaiian islands has caused severe damage to American naval and military forces. Very many American lives have been lost. In addition, American ships have been reported torpedoed on the high seas between San Francisco and Honolulu.
7 US Navy Sailors missing After Destroyer, USS Fitzgerald, and Container Ship Collided Off the Coast of Japan
THE SEARCH CONTINUES FOR 7 MISSING US NAVY SAILORS …
Seven Navy sailors were missing and the captain and at least two others were injured after a U.S. destroyer, USS Fitzgerald, and a container ship collided off the coast of Japan before dawn Saturday. The captain of the USS Fitzgerald was among those injured during the collision of the warship with a 29,000 ton cargo vessel. The US Navy said that up to seven missing sailors could be trapped in the mangled wreck.
Seven Navy sailors were missing and the captain and at least two others were injured after a U.S. destroyer and a container ship collided off the coast of Japan before dawn Saturday, the U.S. Navy and Japanese coast guard reported.
Rescuers were searching for the seven sailors who were thought to have been thrown into the sea or possibly trapped inside damaged sections of the destroyer, said Japanese coast guard spokesman Yoshihito Nakamura. None of the crew of the container ship was reported injured.
Footage from the Japanese TV network NHK showed Navy crew members working to pump water from flooded sections of the mid-right side of the USS Fitzgerald. The Navy’s 7th Fleet said flooding was stabilized and sailors from the USS Dewey came aboard to assist in damage control.
The ship’s captain, Cmdr. Bryce Benson, was airlifted to the U.S. Naval Hospital in Yokosuka and was in stable condition, the 7th Fleet said in a statement. Two other crew suffered cuts and bruises and were evacuated, it said. It was unclear how many others may have been hurt.
Memorial Day – 2017: Remembering, Thanking & Honoring Our Military Heroes For Their Service & Sacrifice
REMEMBERING AND HONORING OUR MILITARY HEROES WHO GAVE ALL … BECAUSE FREEDOM IS NEVER FREE AND HONOR IS FOREVER.
On this Memorial Day 2017, Scared Monkeys sends a special thank you to all of the military men, woman and their families who made the ultimate sacrificed so that We, the United States of America, could remain the home of the free because of the brave. We thank those who gave their lives in the name of liberty and freedom from the bottom of our hearts. We can no longer than them in person, but we can honor their sacrifices to this great Country. Thank you and God Bless you, we shall never forget you your service and sacrifice. Please take time today to remember what this day is truly about and the men and women that we have lost.
Remembering my uncle and all the brave heroes who sacrificed so much … I can remember like it was yesterday, but in fact it was more than 25 years ago, when I stood in Arlington National Cemetery for the funeral of my Uncle and namesake. I can remember the sound of Taps and the 21 gun salute as tears flowed down my face as I laid to rest my hero and a man that gave so much for his country and for me. A man who was the toughest and most honorable, proud and yet humble man I have ever known. God bless all.
Military Times/Institute for Veterans and Military Families Poll: Most Troops Have an Unfavorable View of Obama
The Not-so Commander in Chief …
The Military Times reports that a recent Military Times/Institute for Veterans and Military Families poll shows that the military has a 51.5% unfavorable rating of Barack Obama, while only 16.4% have a favorable one after eight years. Who had the most unfavorable opinion of Obama of all of the branches of the military, the Marines at 60.3%. The biggest criticism of Obama’s time in office was that he decreased the size of the military while in office, as 71% of those polled said the military needs more personnel. Red State opines that back in 2014, 65% of post-9/11 veterans had a favorable opinion of former President George W. Bush, calling him a good Commander-in-Chief, as opposed to about 42% at that time for President Obama.
President Barack Obama will step down after eight years as commander in chief with one of the most influential tenures leading the U.S. military, but not necessarily the political support of service members.
His moves to slim down the armed forces, move away from traditional military might and overhaul social policies prohibiting the service of minority groups have proven divisive in the ranks. His critics have accused him of trading a strong security posture for political points, and for allowing the rise of terrorists like the Islamic State group whom the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan were supposed to silence.
More than half of troops surveyed in the latest Military Times/Institute for Veterans and Military Families poll said they have an unfavorable opinion of Obama and his two-terms leading the military. About 36 percent said they approve of his job as commander in chief.
Their complaints include the president’s decision to decrease military personnel (71 percent think it should be higher), his moves to withdraw combat troops from Iraq (59 percent say it made America less safe) and his lack of focus on the biggest dangers facing America (64 percent say China represents a significant threat to the U.S.)
