Random Thoughts and Observations

OK Folks, A couple of things struck my attention, one though petty to some, is disgusting to me, on 6 June 1944, thousands of young men from many nations stormed Festung Europa, to wrest Europe from the Nazi oppressors, D-Day was one of mass greatest achievements, nearly 10,000 young Americans died that day, died not to seize land as conquerors, or for personal gain, but to free the people of that continent.
For decades, one, if not many stations showed the movie “The Longest Day,” a depiction of that event. This year nada, zilch, zip, TCM, showed nearly 24 hours of war movies, most of which dealt with GI’s with problems on their return, bad commanders, nearly everyone a snide look at the heroism of those young men. Finally, they showed “Battleground,” a classic study of young men made old by war, but who stood their ground against overwhelming odds.
Why, is it because it showed the defeat of Fascism, the same Fascism we are seeing foisted on America today, or because maybe young Americans might be inspired to find out just how great this republic is, ignoring the brainwashing of the teachers and professors. The WHuppet and his administration were very quiet about the day, no mention even with asked, guess those trying to establish the “Fourth Reich” in America, didn’t want to watch the “Third Reich” go down in defeat by those who “more than self their country love, and mercy more than life.”
Another occurrence was the replacement of the POW/MIA flags, in front of Democrat Congressional Offices with flags glorifying Transgender groups, don’t care about it much as most DINOs despise the military, a military that, until the new administration took over, used words like honor, dignity, integrity, so flying any flag honoring American troops was hypocrisy, next they will take down the American flag, and fly, a red one to show their true loyalty.
Another little goodie, I have written that the Director of Human Research at the National Institute of Health, Dr. Christine Grady, is aka Mrs. Anthony Fauci, but folks we have a twofer, their daughter Allison works at TWITTER, you know one of the Fauci for Sainthood media outlets. Guess it doesn’t matter that Bill Gates’ “Igor” destroyed hopes, dreams, lives, and abetted in the murder of thousands of people, no they stopped President Trump’s Tweets, a much more important agenda.
Tomorrow: Time for a little history
God Bless America.
