Flashback: Chuck Schumer Called for Military Parade in 2014

Kirsters Baish| After President Donald Trump made the announcement on Wednesday that he was proposing a military parade in 2018, politicians went mad. Republican Senator John Kennedy stated, “I think confidence is silent and insecurity is loud. America is the most powerful country in all of human history; you don’t need to show it off.” Democratic Representative Adam Smith preend, “A military parade of this kind would also be a departure from the values of our constitutional democracy.” Then there were Democratic Representatives Ruben Gallego and Ted Lieu who stated, “Because authoritarian regimes like Russia and North Korea hold massive military parades does not mean that we must as well.”

There used to be military parades regularly around the United States of America. It was a fun way for communities to celebrate the men and women who fight to protect our rights. Politico reported, “Trump’s Military Parade Draws Bipartisan Rebuke.” 

Then, the Washington Post reported as news, not commentary saying, “Military Parades Are About Ego and Power. Of Course Trump Wants One.”

Even though fake news outlets are reporting fake news, the truth is that the United States of America has had some huge military parades since 1865.

The Daily Wire expanded:

Subsequent public displays of military might, including tanks, missiles, and hundreds of thousands of troops occurred in 1919, 1942, 1946, 1953, 1957, 1961, and 1991.

Even though the mainstream media headlines are totally negative when it comes to President Trump, the truth is that it wasn’t too long ago that military parades had received overwhelming bipartisan support. On top of that, Democratic Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer actually came out supporting a military parade back in 2014. Schumer stood next to New York’s Bolshevik Mayor Bill De Blasio. He stated, “The brave men and women who have selflessly served our nation with courage and skill in Iraq and Afghanistan deserve a recognition for their sacrifice. I stand with Sen. Schumer in his call for a parade to honor our veteran heroes, and New York City would be proud to host this important event.”

It isn’t all that surprising since Schumer hasn’t made a name for himself based on his consistency in politics. Democrats are going to continue to insist that parades be canceled because they are in one way or another “un-American.” Take a look at Schumer making the infamous statement back in 2014 in the video below:
