Daily Caller recently posted a video from 1997 in which then private citizen and radio personality Mike Pence offered a powerful Memorial Day tribute to those who died for this country.
Unlike other politicians, Pence and President Trump have not used patriotism to gain votes, they are patriots.
Steven Nelson of the New York Post writes that President Trump announced last month his executive order calling for a federal “1776 Commission” to promote “patriotic education.”
Trump warned, “A radical movement is attempting to demolish [our] … treasured and precious inheritance. We can’t let that happen. Left-wing mobs have torn down statues of our founders, desecrated our memorials, and carried out a campaign of violence and anarchy.”
The President’s call for patriotic education comes in response to the New York Times’ “totally discredited 1619 Project.” The 1619 Project’s premise is that America was founded on “the principle of oppression, not freedom.”
Never shy of taking a jab at former Vice President Biden, Trump revealed he would erect a monument to Delaware Founding Father Caesar Rodney.
In the wake of the May killing of George Floyd by Minnesota police and the national anti-police brutality and anti-racism protests that followed, Biden’s hometown of Wilmington, Del. removed Rodney’s statue from a public square.
The Biden campaign was silent on the matter.
Watch the video as Daily Caller plays a video of Vice President Pence on The Mike Pence Show in 1997.
