Today marks the 76th anniversary of the largest assault on Europe ever.
D-Day marks the beginning of the end for the fascists in Europe and elsewhere.
I know that nothing I say will do justice to the sacrifice made on that day and thousands of other days in our history of protecting my freedom.
I’ll try: the sacrifices made by millions of people trying to free Europe from moronic brown shirts and sanctioned bullies and murderers should not be forgotten.
Unfortunately, Donald Trump seems to have some trouble with understanding what it is to be anti-fascist (ANTIFA) and he’s not intentionally stirring the pot with race relations and protests in the United States.
Donald Trump is actively putting the POS in POTUS.
Here are just a couple of recent examples of how he’s fueling the flames in the United States:
- He disparages the questions of a black journalist for PBS when he was asked about why black vs white unemployment rates were so different: ‘You’re something else‘.
- Trump says that George Floyd must be smiling down on America today because of the ‘positive’ unemployment numbers that came out on Friday, further tossing gas on intolerable unrest across the country.
- He refuses to acknowledge the disparity that exists between privileged whites in America compared to the suffering of millions of African-Americans. Here’s a situation that he could have tried to unwind.
As I said, I can’t do justice to the honour that so many vets and patriots paid with their lives and livelihood, but the world needs to remind Donald Trump that you can be anti-fascist or fascist. There is no in-between.
