Rewatched “We Stand Together Alone” about Easy Company of the 101st Airborne, the companion piece to Band of Brothers.
When I watch it and then see things like this:
The salute previously came at the end of the school’s 24-hour vigil and Veterans Day ceremony, a tradition for a decade, although it’s commonly seen in the U.S. as an honor for visiting dignitaries.
I thank God that my father and his generation fought World War 2 instead of this one.
Apparently in Canada these days you don’t need to guns firing to trigger people.
Comment that got Don Cherry fired:— Tom Elliott (@tomselliott) November 11, 2019
“People … come here, whatever it is, you love our way of life, you love our milk & honey. At least you can pay a couple of bucks for poppies .. These guys pay for your way of life that you enjoy in Canada. These guys pay the biggest price.” pic.twitter.com/QWoQPaiY47
As the good folks at HotAir put it.
Poor guy. If only he’d done something more innocuous, like repeatedly wearing blackface as an adult, he’d have qualified to earn the support of millions of Canadian liberals who are happy to see him booted off the air today.
I think that’s really why the 85 year old Don Cherry was fired from is announcers post after decades of being a Hockey Icon. He reminded people of what Canadians once were when they had a beach at Normandy to attack vs where they are now.
The folks of the left today don’t like to be reminded of realities, that’s also why when they can’t cancel someone they edit them:
“It’s super cute when journalists/interviewers for magazines leave out the massive part where I give God the glory for the success/ achievements in my life,” Wright tweeted last month. “Haha I still love you and God will still be praised.”
As a very attractive black African woman on one of the best grossing pictures she pushes to many diversity buttons to cancel her but none of that God stuff is getting into those pieces if they can help it.
I’m reminded of what Saint Faustina said after recording her visit to Hell in her diary. Most of the people there didn’t believe there was a hell.
Sometimes even video that anyone can see
and front page headlines that graced the paper isn’t enough to change the official narrative
A Trump ad said Democratic presidential candidates “support giving illegal immigrants free health care at our expense.” We rated that Mostly False. Now a Florida GOP leader made a similar statement. It’s still Mostly False. https://t.co/ggCNKJ0yVl— PolitiFact (@PolitiFact) November 10, 2019
I guess Baghdad Bob must have had plenty of children who came to America and became journalists.
Of course there are some who never fell for this stuff even in their youth:
When I was around nine years old, my parents and three younger siblings moved from a leaky roofed ghetto to a new 11-story government project in Baltimore. Everything was brand new, kitchen appliances and so on. Extremely excited, we were among the first families in the building of all-black residents. Within a short time, that building became a huge ghetto. The elevators were routinely out of service due to vandalism. Our apartment was on the 6th floor. Entering the pitch-black stairwell to walk up to our apartment was like walking into the shadow of death, as the sound of stepping on broken wine bottles echoed off the concrete walls. I suspect my fellow residents were Democrats. They believed every problem was always the fault of white racism.
At nine years old, I sarcastically said, “How can we stop mean white people from sneaking into our building at night, breaking light bulbs in the stairwells, peeing, breaking the elevators and smashing wine bottles?” Even at that young age, commonsense told me whitey was not responsible for problems we could fix ourselves.
I would be really interested in hearing what is being said on Black radio and podcasts about Trump, because I suspect that he is going to take an awful lot of the black vote in areas where even a small swing in said vote will make a huge difference.
