Utopia Talk / Politics / Trump's Mt Rushmore speech

Holy shit. Potus absolutely went to town on the Democrats yesterday.

"Donald Trump: (07:48)
1776 represented the culmination of thousands of years of Western civilization and the triumph of not only spirit, but of wisdom, philosophy, and reason. And yet, as we meet here tonight, there is a growing danger that threatens every blessing our ancestors fought so hard for, struggled, they bled to secure. Our nation is witnessing a merciless campaign to wipe out our history, defame our heroes, erase our values, and indoctrinate our children. 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’re doing this, but some know 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.

Donald Trump: (09:17)
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 to our values and it has absolutely no place in the United States of America.

Donald Trump: (10:24)
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 from 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.

Donald Trump: (11:25)
Make no mistake. This left-wing cultural revolution is designed to overthrow the American Revolution. In so doing they would destroy the very civilization that rescued billions from poverty, disease, violence, and hunger, and that lifted humanity to new heights of achievement, discovery, and progress. To make this possible, they are determined to tear down every statue, symbol, and memory of our national heritage.

----

Donald Trump: (13:54)
Our people have a great memory. They will never forget the destruction of statues and monuments to George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, Ulysses S. Grant, abolitionists and many others. The violent mayhem we have seen in the streets and cities that are run by liberal Democrats in every case is the predictable result of years of extreme indoctrination and bias in education, journalism, and other cultural institutions. Against every law of society and nature, our children are taught in school to hate their own country and to believe that the men and women who built it were not heroes but that were villains. 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 defiled the memory of Washington, Jefferson, Lincoln and Roosevelt. Today we will set history and history’s record straight."

And then he spent the next half hour brilliantly reminding the country why we revere these guys in the first place. Fucking a.

Its nice to have a president who actually believes that America and its entire history doesnt suck.

Overall I thought it was a good speech. Was a bit I think he could have left out until another day but still mostly good.

Our people have great memory. Well if we have great memory we will not forget the people who's statues were torn down.
Nobody is replacing or burning all the thousands of books written about just about every minute detail of the Civil War.

Indeed not, increased testing among younger patients is a factor as well.

Deaths are still running flat despite the caseload rise, incidentally.

But again, a seasonal flu doesn't really warrant mentioning during ID4 celebrations.

As usual, the party trying to defend the old ways, are and will be viewed in the future on the wrong side of history. The villains as Trump was so fond of saying.

As it has always done, the human world continues to change. The way people live and think in the future will be different than it is now and certainly different than it was in the past.

The only freedom and history I see threatened is the fictitious one most of us were raised being taught, of the larger than life hero worship of the white America.

People will understand the bigger picture history happened within and more knowledge is more power and understanding that should never be feared. Our future will be better for it. And we'll be ever closer to ALL citizens being able to freely participate fully in "life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness".

The median time to death from a an early positive test is 3 weeks.

So, I wouldn't call it yet.

It may be longer than 3 weeks now given advances in treatment and earlier diagnosis that can prolong the misery.

But to be clear, are we speaking of median, mean, or average time to death.

But % positive in testing has risen, which is a good indicator that the increased number of cases can't be attributed only to increased testing. Nice try at the spin, though, lol.

And % mortality continues to drop, as blue state nursing homes run dry.

On the 4th, though:

City of Salem
July 3 at 10:00 AM · Shared with Public
The City of Salem wants to wish our community a safe and happy holiday weekend. As a reminder, our Fourth of July fireworks presentation at Riverfront Park has been canceled this year. Phase 2 guidance continues to require limits to outdoor gatherings to minimize the potential spread of COVID-19.

Please continue the safe and responsible use of our public parks. This includes maintaining adequate social distance, refraining from smoking, and keeping pets on their leash. All City parks close at sunset and the use of fireworks is prohibited anywhere on park grounds.

http://www...lives-matter-rally/5369401002/

A portion of Court Street in Salem will be closed Saturday, July 4 starting at 11 a.m. for a Black Lives Matter Solidarity Rally.

The event, coordinated by Salem Community Organizers, is expected to draw up to 1,000 people, City of Salem officials said Thursday.

They plan to gather on the Capitol steps and begin with speakers and performances at noon. City officials said the group does not plan to march on city streets and has reserved the Capitol Mall and steps.

"Its nice to have a president [with a speech writer] who actually believes that America and its entire history doesnt suck."

Added a little fix in there for you. Trump didn't know any of that shit. The speech writer did. You know that. He hired a good assistant to do a task, and delegated. That's why he's successful in business. He's not a history nerd.

ep is right. I read that speech and immediately thought that Trump could not have possible written it.

It was a good speech, but Trump is a senile orange faced idiot who cannot answer simple questions without a cue card.
