If you’ve interpreted the SOTU as anything but Patriotic, you’re too young to remember the America I moved to 30 years ago, have not assimilated as an immigrant, or have been successfully programmed by the global elite to mistake patriotism for a form of toxic nationalism.
Trump’s address brought me back to my first years as an immigrant in this Country, when John Wayne was a hero for his love of everything that created these United States of America.
His speech was 100% about America, its roots, its spirit, its strength. And 100% about the kind of people who have made this a great Country.
I remember visiting Brazil, and people would ask me why was The U.S. so ahead of a country that was about the same age, population and geographic size. That was an easy answer…
Americans were patriots, they loved this country and its history. They worked to preserve it. They even came across as arrogant to some other cultures, and they didn’t care. It was never about being arrogant, it was about being proud of what they had built. I understood that, and I admired it.
Thus, my desire to become an American. I wanted to be part of a people who had the strength to fight for what they believed, and so I did.
As the global elite gained control of some of our politicians and our school system, patriotism has become frowned upon, it gained a new name – nationalism.
So, when Trump, in typical John Wayne style, offered no apologies for his love for America and its spirit; and delivered a speech presenting the work done during his first year, which has been solely dedicated to bringing back the economic strength that we once had. The global elite, represented by politicians who oppose him, could not cheer for America, or Americans.
They did not cheer for the sacrifices made by the Citizens celebrated last night. The young boy who placed flags at veterans graves, the ICE agent who rid the country of countless gang members, the firefighter who saved lives in California, not even the parents who tragically lost their daughters at the hands of MS13 gang members. They did not cheer for the mention of the Flag or the Anthem, one even left the room when the crowd started chanting USA. They did not applaud the lowest unemployment in decades among Black Americans, or record job growth. They sat there, bothered by any sign of American exeptionalism.
You see…. if they did cheer, they would be turning their backs on the global elites whom they’ve been working so hard for to convince us that America is not exceptional, that it is not our spirit of self-reliance that brought us here, but our greed and selfishness.
Their undeniable hate for the President is simply because one man was able to rekindle the spirit of patriotism they’ve worked so hard to diminish and got so close to eliminating.
America will keep standing as a beacon of freedom for as long as there are Patriots!
Let us never forget that, and let us teach our children so they will not forget.
When I listened to the rebuttal speech by a pale red-headed trust fund Kennedy desperately trying to channel former President Obama by using his famous words… “This is not who we are” , in my mind I responded: You have no clue who we are!
We are welders, truck drivers, house wives, small business owners, miners, farmers, college graduates, accountants, salespeople, construction workers, computer engineers…. we are fighters, not beggars. We are Americans!
And last night, through President Trump’s first State of the Union address …
We were all John Wayne.
