Trump defends America, calls cancel culture ‘totalitarianism’ in electrifying Mt. Rushmore speech By Doug Mainwaring for Life Site News
In a speech that infuriated the liberal media, the president warned that there is a ‘merciless campaign to wipe out our history, defame our heroes, erase our values, and indoctrinate our children’ and decried the ‘new far-left fascism that demands absolute allegiance.’
Standing at the foot of majestic Mount Rushmore on the eve of Independence Day and amid thunderous cheers and chants of “USA! USA! USA!” President Donald Trump delivered a reassuring message counteracting weeks of Anti-American protests, riots, and assaults not only on the country’s historic monuments, but on history itself.
President Trump identified the force driving recent eruptions of violence and desecration of cultural sites as “far-left fascism that demands absolute allegiance,” a “left-wing cultural revolution designed to overthrow the American Revolution.”
“I am here as your president to proclaim before the country and before the world,” began Trump, “This monument will never be desecrated, these heroes will never be defaced, their legacy will never, ever be destroyed, their achievements will never be forgotten, and Mount Rushmore will stand forever as an eternal tribute to our forefathers and to our freedom.”
“1776 represented the culmination of thousands of years of western civilization and the triumph not only of spirit, but of wisdom, philosophy, and reason,” he continued. “And yet, as we meet here tonight, there is a growing danger that threatens every blessing our ancestors fought so hard for, struggled, they bled to secure.”
‘Cancel culture’ is ‘the very definition of totalitarianism’
“Our nation is witnessing a merciless campaign to wipe out our history, defame our heroes, erase our values, and indoctrinate our children,” he declared.
“Angry mobs are trying to tear down statues of our Founders, deface our most sacred memorials, and unleash a wave of violent crime in our cities,” he continued. “They think the American people are weak and soft and submissive. But no, the American people are strong and proud, and they will not allow our country, and all of its values, history, and culture, to be taken from them.”
