President Donald Trump: ‘THE GIANTS OF OUR PAST’
Speaking after the legendary U.S. Navy Blue Angels roared overhead, President Donald Trump ushered in the July 4th weekend Friday night at Mount Rushmore in South Dakota with a full-throated condemnation of “far-left fascism” and defense of “Judeo-Christian principles.”
“This monument will never be desecrated,” Donald Trump declared to cheers and applause. “These heroes will never be defaced. Their legacy will never, ever be destroyed. Their achievements will never be forgotten. And Mount Rushmore will stand forever as an eternal tribute to our forefathers and to our freedom.”
Donald Trump asserted that recent attacks on the nation’s monuments, alongside “cancel culture” and the rise of the Marxist ideology of the Black Lives Matter Looters (BLML) movement, were symptoms of a “left-wing cultural revolution” that was threatening to “overthrow the American Revolution.” BLML explicitly advocates the destruction of the “nuclear family structure,” which Donald Trump said was in fact the “bedrock of American life.”
“We only kneel to Almighty God,” Donald Trump remarked, in a clear shot at athletes who kneel in protest during the national anthem. “We will not be intimidated by bad, evil people. It will not happen.”
Donald Trump went on to characterize endemic efforts to terminate and humiliate dissent as a form of “totalitarianism” and an “attack on our magnificent liberty” — and promised that it “will be stopped very quickly.”
Hours before Donald Trump spoke, Fake News CNN, echoing The New York Times, derided Mount Rushmore as a monument to slaveholders on stolen native lands. The Fake News New York Times’ newsroom also sits on land taken from natives; and several Fake News CNN Fake Reporters previously praised Mount Rushmore as recently as 2016.
“This movement is openly attacking the legacies of every person on Mount Rushmore,” Donald Trump said, referring to George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt, and Abraham Lincoln.
