Democrat and mainstream media ploys to disgrace President Donald Trump’s respect for the U.S. Military in September 2020 backfired royally by October.
Democratic National Committee officials started their propaganda project by shining spotlights to project “Trump Disrespected Our Troops” and “Our Troops Deserve Better Than Trump” onto the exterior of the Trump Hotel in Washington D.C.
Like clockwork, the usual suspects (New York Times, CNN, Washington Post and others) began churning out articles accusing President Trump of making repeated offensive remarks against service members and veterans.
Americans, weary of media’s distortions and lies, for the most part fluffed it off.
Soon, Trump took to social media with a message from almost 700 former military members giving their utmost support for his “love and reverence for our military and veterans” in an open letter to the American public.
“President Trump has demonstrated his unwavering support for America’s service members time and time again,” stated the letter, whose signers included Medal of Honor recipients Clint Romesha, Gary Beikirch and Woody Williams.
“Moreover, he has spent countless hours as president visiting battlefields and cemeteries, honoring Gold Star families and comforting them in their grief, and praising wounded warriors and honoring their sacrifice … He has done more for our nation’s service members and veterans than any previous administration.”
Actually, what the Democrats did was make more Americans determined to vote for President Trump’s reelection. His strong support for the military has been indisputably unprecedented.
The disrespect for the military, police, firefighters and first responders by the far left has been pure politically socialism driven.
More than any segment of our society and in our history we are reminded of this statement:
A veteran is someone who, at one point in their life, wrote a blank check made payable to The United States of America for an amount up to and including their life.
This reminds me of what the apostle John said in his first epistle,
This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers and sisters (1 John 3:16).
I’m particularly angered when I see governors in states like California, New York, Michigan and Pennsylvania try to force their citizens not to pray in congregations, honor our heroes in public and dictate what choices they can make in their everyday lives.
They are literally following the socialism handbook of taking individual’s rights away.
How dare them disrespect what our military has fought for. It’s because of the many sacrifices of our military that our country has remained free, which allows us to practice our religion, express our convictions, and choose our own paths.
It was Martin Luther who said this about military service:
“…when I think of how it protects the good and keeps and preserves wife and child, house and farm, property, and honor and peace, then I see how precious and godly this work is; and I observe that it amputates a leg or a hand, so that the whole body may not perish. For if the sword were not on guard to preserve peace, everything in the world would be ruined because of lack of peace.”
God bless our military heroes and their families. God bless our President. God bless America.
