President Trump gave an impassioned speech in defense of the greatness of America. He highlighted the sacrifices America has made in freeing nations from tyranny, going to the moon and the great innovations in science and technology, America has bestowed upon the world.
The Democrats were not impressed. They sat during many of the high points of the president’s speech.
Democratic Presidential Candidate Kamala Harris rolled her eyes at the president throughout his speech. The Democrats groaned when the president talked about protecting our border from a migrant caravan, as it approached our country. The president talked about the “moral duty” the government has to secure our borders.
He spoke highly of immigrants who come into our country legally. He said that legal immigrants, “Strengthen our country.”
Surely the Democrats stood for legal immigrants, right?
The president stated he “won’t abolish I.C.E.”
Surely the Democrats stood for I.C.E, right?
President Trump vowed to soldier on without the Democrats, if they didn’t fund the wall. He said, “I will get it built.” He described two brutal killings by illegal immigrants to make his case. Last week, in New York City, an American citizen was brutally murdered by a member of the MS-13 gang. In Reno, Nevada, an illegal immigrant broke into the home of an elderly couple and killed them in cold blood.
The Democrats still sat for the wall.
Noticing a pattern?
Throughout the speech, the president did a masterful job of putting the Dems on defense for issues they claim to care about.
For example: The Democrats claim to be the protectors of minorities in this country, however, the Dems sat when Trump cited the fact that unemployment is at an all-time low amongst minorities.
Many Democratic women were wearing white in support of women’s “economic empowerment.”
Women’s economic empowerment? Really, Dems? The Democratic women should be thanking the president for presiding over an economic policy that has led to the lowest unemployment rate amongst women in American history, and women filling for more new jobs than men.
But they didn’t. Instead, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez pouted in her white dress. She should have been sitting in a high chair.
The low point for the Democrats came when the president discussed abortion. This past week the Democrats have supported the barbaric policy of aborting babies up until the point of birth. In the state of New York, Governor Andrew Cuomo signed a bill into law that would allow babies to be killed up until the time of birth. He then ordered government buildings to be lit up pink to celebrate the law. The Governor of Virginia went even further when he said that babies could be killed after they were born.
In response to these acts of depravity, President Trump said:
Lawmakers in New York cheered with delight upon passage of legislation that would allow a baby to be ripped from the mother’s womb moments before birth. These are living, feeling, beautiful babies who will never get the chance to share their love and dreams with the world… To defend the dignity of every person, I am asking the Congress to pass legislation to prohibit the late-term abortion of children who can feel pain in the mother’s womb.
The Democrats claim to stand for the most vulnerable amongst us, but they sit when it comes to defending vulnerable babies.
Recently, there have been growing calls for socialism in America. Despite the horrors happening in Venezuela, many democrats have praised socialism. Trump vowed that America “will never be a socialist country.” This line caused Republicans to chant, “USA! USA! USA!” The Democratic response was more muted.
Comrade Bernie Sanders’ face turned bright red as he raged at the Republicans. It is very sad that a sitting president of the United States has to denounce socialism, giving the horrors it has unleashed on hundreds of millions of people over the last century.
The contrasts between the parties was on full display. Hopefully, Americans will see that the Democrats are an increasingly radical party and unworthy of their vote. President Trump would be wise to continue the contrasting over the next two years. He is more likely to be re-elected if he does.
