Last summer, President Trump attended the Bastille Day Parade in Paris and was moved and inspired by all the pomp and circumstance, and who wouldn’t be?
The President liked the idea of having a parade on U.S. soil to pay tribute to the men and women in uniform, but apparently showing gratitude to those who put their lives on the line is a big turn off, at least for the usual suspects.
Comparisons to Hitler, Stalin and Kim Jong-Un were trotted out — the last one looking a bit odd in light of the Left fawning over his sister, Kim Yo Jong.
Yet, surely there’s a difference between a military parade staged by a dictatorship and a military parade staged by a western democracy.
Apparently not for the Left.
In addition to other objections, it was suggested that an overt display of patriotism might make America’s enemies hate America even more!
Yeah, a military parade in D.C. will make the Taliban really, really, really hate America whereas they merely really, really hate America now.
Not to be outdone, north of the border in the Globe and Mail, Lawrence Martin called Trump a narcissist for wanting to stage a parade.
But, despite what nattering nabobs of negativity say, Trump’s plan for a military parade is a political win for the President.
