I don't watch their junk anymore as it is, so I have no problem with their plans for the fourth of July. OUR NATION'S BIRTHDAY. But it is good to know they have other plans than to celebrate our national holiday.

To use the words of my Father, those 3 networks can "go piss up a rope".

It's decisions like this that will be the death of these networks.

Sadly, a great many people watch and are influenced by these networks. That, could be the death of our nation.

the censorship is out in the open,

Trump is using the holiday for a bit of self promotion and propaganda... but the networks ignoring it .. rather than reporting it with their own commentary ... is kind of stunning to me.

As someone who's noticed for years how the MSM ignores many big events that don't fit their POV, I know it's not something new. But to completely block a 4th of July celebration with the president involved and an unprecedented the USSR style militaristic promotion planned.

It's kind of stunning...
We live in interesting times.

TRUMP WANTS A BIG MILITARY PARADE, JUST LIKE FRANCE

Quote:
President Donald Trump has asked the Pentagon to put on a military parade to show off America's military might. It will be similar to one Trump saw during his trip to France last July, and officials are working to make it happen later this year.

"The marching orders were: I want a parade like the one in France," a military official told The Washington Post Tuesday. "This is being worked at the highest levels of the military."
Saying a military parade MUST be a "USSR style militaristic promotion" is like me calling you a "Nazi" because you eat food...Just like Hitler did...

mm, not really.
Everyone eats, not everyone has military parades in front of ...the Fuhrer, Supreme leader... President on national holidays about "revolution" ... much less "freedom".

Look, from what i've heard about the planning it simply brings to my mind images I watched on the news and in school for decades of the USSR parades where Soviet leaders from Stalin to Gorbechev stood on some grandstand while soviet troops... then tanks, then missiles passed them in review.
I don't think I've ever seen a French military parade in my life.
So I've got no context for what the French do.
But i do have a context and memory of the spirit of traditional US 4th of July celebrations and parades. And a context and memory of the traditional USSR military aggrandizing parades.

And BTW, it's not that i'm "anti-military" . I've gone to my share of Military displays, Memorial day parades, air shows and memorials. But with what Trump seems to be proposing the ONLY thing that comes to my mind
, with tanks etc passing in review of the leader of a nation, in the capital city, on a national holiday,
is the USSR and old communist China.

Maybe you didn't get the full treatment during the cold war of the milieu of communist military dictatorship of the USSR like i did. or maybe you've forgotten.

Look maybe you'll like to see military tanks rolling up and down D.C. streets, but for me that image doesn't bring up the thought of "freedom" or the spirit of the "American Revolution" much less the declaration of Independence.

'Tanks' a lot: Trump 4th of July celebration isn't first time armored vehicles have rumbled into Washington

Quote:
Tanks rumbled down Pennsylvania Avenue for Dwight Eisenhower's inaugural parade in 1953. John F. Kennedy deployed them eight years later – as well as missiles. Even a 1939 visit by England's King George VI prompted a splashy display of armored hardware rolling through the nation's capital.

Royal welcome

On June 8, 1939, Washington and President Franklin D. Roosevelt held a welcoming parade for King George VI and Queen Elizabeth. Their procession was led by a small group of tanks.

The parade took place on the eve of World War II with soldiers, Marines and sailors standing at attention along the route as the cars carrying the monarchs passed by. Cheering throngs lined every foot of the parade route.

"No reigning British Monarch had ever set foot on American soil, not even in colonial times," according to the Franklin D. Roosevelt Library and Museum. So "Roosevelt's invitation to the King carried great significance in the history of Anglo-American relations because it signified the dawn of a new era in American and British cooperation."

First and second Eisenhower inaugurals

Eisenhower, the famed Army general turned president, had multiple tanks rolling on Pennsylvania Avenue at not only his first (Jan. 21, 1953) inauguration but his second (Jan. 21,1957) as well.

By then, tanks had become familiar components of parades thanks to the numerous victory celebrations following World War II. President Harry S. Truman's inaugural parade in 1949 featured tanks too.

JFK Inauguration

By the time John F. Kennedy held his inauguration on Jan. 20, 1961, tanks had become a staple of the presidential festivities.

But his parade, during the height of the Cold War with the Soviet Union, featured something even more eye-popping: missiles.

Army Pershing, Lacrosse, Nike Hercules and Nike Zeus were among the missiles prominently displayed during the route.
Those ignorant of history are doomed to whine about it when it repeats...
