Yes, for millions, Memorial Day weekend is pretty much the unofficial start of the summer. It’s when folks start making their trek to the beach. There are barbeques as well. We’ve all had many a Memorial Day with such festivities, but it’s due to the sacrifices of so many better Americans before us who served and died to protect our freedoms. That’s sort of been lost. Vice President Kamala Harris embodied that perfectly with a tweet that read “enjoy the long weekend” that featured an image…of herself. There’s a great meme that’s immortal on this subject.
It shows a picture of a generic packed shoreline at the top and an image of American soldiers on the beaches of Normandy below it.
It reads “your day at the beach is because of their day at the beach.”
There’s another aspect missing here on this Memorial Day. It’s disturbing really. This is due to liberals perverting American history. Hell, they’re straight-up making it up with this Critical Race Theory nonsense sweeping the nation. The Left has never been able to grasp history or accept that it’s violent, or that it’s overall quite unpleasant to a lot of cultures and races. That discomfort, coupled with snowflake syndrome, has sparked this historical revisionism that’s sold as academic work but is really a fraud. It’s fiction. It’s historical fiction. There is nothing wrong with that on its own, but liberals are trying to pass that off as actual historical analyses.
The sins of the past should not be forgotten, but they cannot hold us back. For the Left, the sins of the past must be addressed, even if it means lying about our history to make us…feel better. It’s crap. This inability for liberal America to simply stop bashing America and accept the flaws on this country, and acknowledging the progress we’ve made, has led to this crosstab that spits in the face of the greatest generation who fought to stop Nazi Germany and Tojo’s Japan. Apparently, there is a shocking number of Americans who are unsure if it was good to fight Nazi Germany during World War II. I’m not kidding. The number of Americans who flat-out said “yes” it was a mistake to take on the Nazis is also bonkers (via NY Post):
… a whopping one-third of Americans either believe that it was a mistake or remain unsure about the US’s involvement in the so-called “good war,” according to a new poll by the Economist/YouGov.
The study, which was conducted in honor of Memorial Day, asked 1,500 Americans whether it was a mistake for the US to participate in wars from World War I to Iraq. To ensure accurate representation, the sample was weighted according to gender, age, race, education, 2016 presidential vote, registration status, geographic region, and other designations, per the site.
The poll found that a whopping 18% of participants were unsure if Uncle Sam should’ve participated in WWII, in which President Franklin Delano Roosevelt deployed troops to fight the Nazis and the Japanese Empire in 1941.
Meanwhile, 14% thought fighting in the “War Against Hitler” was a mistake while 62% believed that contributing soldiers was the right decision.
Excuse me? One-third of this nation is a bit hazy on Nazi Germany and World War II. That’s appalling, but this is America; you can believe in appalling things. Things that are nuts. That’s the other debate liberals have on First Amendment rights. They feel that views they view as disapproving should be censored, the people who believe them canceled, and a speech code to police how we think. I find the poll results horrific. But as CNN and others have tried to become policemen with regards to what is crazy or not as they try to make it seem like everyone who is not like them is a Q’Anon supporter, I’ll just hope this can be corrected in due time with proper education. I know, it’s a tough climb.
Recently, the liberal media has parroted the line that 15 percent of Americans believe in Q’Anon’s core beliefs. And? Am I missing something here? the only people who seem to be worried about this are the liberal media establishment, which is a tell-tale sign that it’s not a worry at all. Also, that 15 percent figure—do we need to read the crosstabs on the World War II poll again? And if this is nutbar factor six, just wait until the media peruses the numerous 9/11 conspiracy theories and finds how many Americans think Israel either planned or had a part in executing the attacks. People will believe what they want to believe. The only difference is that liberals cannot accept that people don’t believe what they believe. That’s their problem.
Defeating Nazi Germany was a good thing. Defeating Imperial Japan was a good thing. It is sad that one-third of the country is fuzzy on this, but maybe things would be so murky if liberals stopped trying to reconstruct American history like some bad plastic surgeon.
