COVID-19 Thoughts Part 55: The Mount Rushmore Speech...a much needed speech for an endangered President Trump

President Donald Trump really hit a home run with his speech at Mount Rushmore on July 3, prior to the official 4th of July holiday. It was a much needed rebound for the president in which the possibility is high for him to be ran out of office by a candidate who likely growing not only older but physically if not mental sick. Yet his promises to choose a Vice Presidential candidate who is a women and likely one of color, could give the Democratic Party only more bragging rights that is truly needs in order to cover up it’s checkered if not hands down wicked past.

But let us highlight some of the statements that President Trump made at Mount Rushmore in South Dakota.
He quickly honored each of the Presidents that were carved on the mountain; George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, and Theodore “Teddy” Roosevelt Jr, at the beginning of his speech. He pointed out the key document to the very reason why we have an Independence Day in the first place. He also pointed out the current insurrection brought upon the nation because the tragic death of George Floyd. That very insurrection by the masterminds of it, believe that the death of a common black civilian (who only became a celebrity after death) has made the iron hot and those who want revolution feel that the time to strike is now. Quoting President Trump;

Angry mobs are trying to tear down statues of our Founders, deface our most sacred memorials, and unleash a wave of violent crime in our cities. Many of these people have no idea why they are doing this, but some know exactly what they are doing. They think the American people are weak and soft and submissive. But no, the American people are strong and proud, and they will not allow our country, and all of its values, history, and culture, to be taken from them.

One of their political weapons is “Cancel Culture” — driving people from their jobs, shaming dissenters, and demanding total submission from anyone who disagrees. This is the very definition of totalitarianism, and it is completely alien to our culture and our values, and it has absolutely no place in the United States of America. This attack on our liberty, our magnificent liberty, must be stopped, and it will be stopped very quickly. We will expose this dangerous movement, protect our nation’s children, end this radical assault, and preserve our beloved American way of life.

In our schools, our newsrooms, even our corporate boardrooms, there is a new far-left fascism that demands absolute allegiance. If you do not speak its language, perform its rituals, recite its mantras, and follow its commandments, then you will be censored, banished, blacklisted, persecuted, and punished. It’s not going to happen to us.

Yes Mr. President; Cancel Culture is a great political weapon and so far its working. They have removed statues, rioted in many cites and are pressuring corporate America and academic to accept their demands and so-called reforms which in reality are ways to fundamentally transform America into something that our founders themselves would not approve of. President Trump was correct in stating that this is an all out attempt to overthrow the American Revolution, and they could care less about the negative consequences that would follow.

He also points out that in our schools (especially our government/public schools) that children have been taught to hate America and that men (and certain women) who built and preserved it to the best of their abilities were evil people.

The radical view of American history is a web of lies — all perspective is removed, every virtue is obscured, every motive is twisted, every fact is distorted, and every flaw is magnified until the history is purged and the record is disfigured beyond all recognition.

This movement is openly attacking the legacies of every person on Mount Rushmore. They defile the memory of Washington, Jefferson, Lincoln, and Roosevelt. Today, we will set history and history’s record straight.

And with that sentence, he went deep into the positive actions of the four Presidents carved in stone.

Nearing the close of his speech, our president advocated to the nation that we teach our children to see our nation, the same way that Dr. Martin Luther King did. It was Dr. King that said that America’s founders signed “a promissory note” to future generations of American citizens. President Trump reminded his loyal citizens that America gave us the likes of Ulysses S. Grant, Frederick Douglass, the Wright Brothers, the Tuskegee Airmen, Harriet Tubman, Jesse Owens, Louis Armstrong, Mohammad Ali, Bob Hope, the King of Rock and Roll, and old Blue Eyes himself. All this and more part of the Americana.

Still the major media outlets (or the Democrat Party press as Mark Levin likes to call them) are not going to cut him any slack. The handing of COVID-19 may still give Joe Biden the keys to the oval office and a few women jocking for his VP position quickly lashed out. Susan Rice found comfort with Democrat hacktivist Chuck Todd on Meet The Press, claiming that President Trump is betting his legacy on confederated monuments and relics of slavery rather they uniting the America people at a time when it is needed....whatever that means in Rice’s worldview. Sen. Tammy Duckworth (D-Illinois) took to CNN’s State of the Union with substitute host Dana Bash and echoed more/less what Rice said (using the term “Dead Confederates”) and that President Trump is not concerned about the people infected with COVID-19. Brit Hume who is senior political analyst for Fox News Channel correctly rebuked both statements during his appearance on Special Report with Brit Baier. Hume pointed out that no confederates were ever mentioned in his Mount Rushmore speech, and the speech was overall a defense of America’s history and its heroes. The speech indeed was meant to unite a people, but partisan Democrats are going to do what they do. Hume however warns that the Trump Administration’s handing of the history of the Confederates was not done well in other places including the press conferences.

Meanwhile Collin Kaepernick has no love for the 4th of July, declaring that the black people have been enslaved for centuries in America, and believes that the holiday honors white supremacy. I just want to know what he thinks “liberation for all” means. More than not the destruction of America as we know it, and replaced with a new government...something that is closer to the former Soviet Union or China, and if not those nations...then something like Cuba or Venezuela. Worse yet, the Middle East...remember look at Kaepernick’s popular Muslim girlfriend. She could very well still be pulling the strings.

Still the handing of COVID-19 could make Trump a one term President and the left is trying to keep the panic going on that issue in hopes that it will defeat Trump and return power of the Oval Office to the Democratic Party...and most likely until the end of America as we know it. Trump must make the case that the COVID-19 lockdowns were a big mistake and that we should have kept the economy open if he wants to score a second term. Otherwise, his speech at Mount Rushmore will become a footnote in history.
