Why We Must Keep the Memory of D-Day Alive

"Every serviceman headed to Normandy was handed a “Pocket Guide to France” that read, in part: “We democracies aren’t just doing favors in fighting for each other when history gets tough. We’re all in the same boat. Take a look around you as you move into France and you’ll see what the Nazis do to a democracy.” - NY Times

As President Biden heads to Normandy to mark the 80th anniversary of D-Day this week, he will also be defending alliances that guided the western world through World War II, the Cold War, the war on terror and, currently, Russia's bloody invasion of Ukraine... Trump on the other hand has repeatedly threatened to abandon NATO, saying the U.S. bears too much of the burden. - USA Today

"Trump didn't want to visit a cemetery near Paris for Americans who fought and died in World War I because it was filled with "suckers" and "losers," said John Kelly, his longest-serving chief of staff. Kelly supported this and several other instances of Trump disparaging service members that were reported by The Atlantic." - Axios

Republicans claim to be patriotic, but dishonor the families of the brave who have fallen and cut veterans' benefits. See how in this infographic.

MAGA Republicans lack decency

"Cindy McCain Says Trump Wasn’t Invited to Husband’s Funeral Because She Wanted to Keep It ‘With Dignity’. Trump had a longtime feud with the Arizona Republican, and the tension between them drew national attention during the 2016 Republican presidential primary, when Trump said McCain was not a war hero because he was captured and held for more than five years in a North Vietnamese prison.

“He’s not a war hero,” Trump said at the Family Leadership Summit in 2015. “He was a war hero because he was captured. I like people who weren’t captured.” Cindy McCain said Trump’s comments were hurtful to her family and other veterans. “I don’t know if I’ll ever get over it; I’ll be honest,” she said. “But I’m the wife. That’s my prerogative. I don’t have to.” - Time

No parent forgets when their child died: Remember that Hur

Biden Blasts Special Counsel Report: "How The Hell Dare He" Say I Don't Remember When Beau Died - Real Clear Politics

The president grew particularly emotional recounting a line from special counsel Robert K. Hur’s report that suggested he did not recall the year in which his son Beau had passed away. Beau Biden died of cancer in 2015, when his father was vice president.

“There’s even [a] reference that I don’t remember when my son died,” Biden said. “How in the hell dare he raise that?”.The president said he remembers his son’s death every day. “Frankly, when I was asked the question, I thought to myself it wasn’t any of their damn business,” he said. “I don’t need anyone to remind me of when he passed away.” - Washington Post

There’s only one way to talk about Gold Star parents: with honor and respect

Khizr Khan, the soldier’s father, lashed out at Mr. Trump in an interview on Saturday, saying his wife had not spoken at the convention because it was too painful for her to talk about her son’s death.Mr. Trump, he said, “is devoid of feeling the pain of a mother who has sacrificed her son.”

Gov. John Kasich of Ohio castigated Trump. “There’s only one way to talk about Gold Star parents: with honor and respect,” he wrote, using the term for surviving family members of those who died in war. - NY Times

Take Away: Honor those who have laid down their lives to defend American democracy. Vote for President Biden and Democrats.
