Left lose their “collective minds” over Trump’s military parade

David MenziesMission Specialist

 

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.

- I think everything President Donald J Trump does is done for 2 reasons. First, to make America great again & second, to trigger the far left (which forces them to show their true face). So the Globe’s Lawrence Martin thinks Trump is a narcissist for wanting a parade. What does he think Trudeau’s is I wonder? I’M sure Lawrence was very fond of narcissist & chief Obama. Maybe they changed the meaning of the word “narcissist”. I know how the far left likes to play with words. Maybe I’ll have to get my copy of the Newspeak dictionary updated. Sun Tzu’s – The Art of War isn’t just about war. It’s used in business as well. I have no doubt President Trump is very familiar with it.

I relish the though of the Looney Left losing their collective minds over a patriotic military parade.

At least it isn’t a "gearbox and trans-mutant " parade because they are some sick and deprived spectacles.

Much better than paying for a pride parade.

I guess it would be ok though, if it was a military marching band wearing nothing but bras and g strings in a gay pride parade.

Donald doesn’t take one penny of salary for being pres. If he wants to blow some on a parade he can, besides the vets deserve some respect. A parade would be good for their moral as well as civilian moral.

I wish we could see a little more patriotism in this country.
A parade might be a little over the top but hey so is the Donald.
Who cares if it is a show of military power. Everyone else does it.

This is great.
The LW nuts declare that this is a waste of money. Since when has spending money bothered the the LW nuts.
They think the Talibanies are going to hate the USA even more than they do now! Really? How about ISIS? Will they hate us more? Or the CBC? Will they report the news more anti-Trump than they already do now?
The nuts just don’t like it because Trump thought of it and they didn’t.
One thing is for certain, the participants won’t be running up and down the streets wearing only g strings or going topless complete with black leather callars and whips and leashes. (In front of young children no less).
No, the participants will be respectful military professionals who have been trained to protect the Rights Freedoms and Liberties which the LW nuts are able to enjoy being blessed living in the USA.
Let the marching bands play on !

NOTHING BEETS A PARADEBEING 69 YEARS OLD, AS A YOUNG BOY OF 4 YEARS OLD I STILL REMEMBER THE MILITARY PARADE DOWN ST. CATHERINE’S STREET IN MONTREAL. STANDING ON THE SIDEWALK IN FRONT OF BURKE’S WITH THE EATON’S STORE ACROSS THE STREET, SEEING THE BRAVE SOLDERS IN UNIFORM MARCHING WITH PRIDE. A MEMORY THAT WILL NEVER DIE UNTIL I DIE.

A military parade strikes me as perhaps an unnecessary stick-in-the-eye to the demented left. But I hope he pulls it off without too much sniveling backlash from the snowflakes and their MSM guidance counselors.

Not surprised by Lawrence Martin’s take on the issue… He already was a leftie when he was Moscow Bureau Chief for the Mop and Pail and studiously avoided any mention of the “Singing Revolution” going on in the Baltic States… When he finally couldn’t ignore it any more he went to Riga and rather than cover the popular uprising to regain freedom, instead wrote a tear-jerker about some Russian “babushka” worrying about her pension…

James Crockett: Just let us see proof from you where “many on the right have said that they don’t want to pay for it either”. I just double dare you.
In the meantime, let’s just hope that Trump gets his military parade. I, for one, as a Canadian would LOVE to see an exhibition of North American patriotism, as it sure as hell is not going to happen up here in Canda with our Commie-loving little potato in charge. (God help us, may that end in 2019!)

Except many on the right have said that they don’t want to pay for it either – it would cost MANY millions of dollars, but don’t let that stop you from your shill agenda, David.

Lefty logic: Gay Pride Parades A- Okay, A parade to honour the Military and First Responders, horrible idea!

I hope President Trump invites President Macron to this parade.
