The liberal outrage du jour or du week (sorry I don’t know the French word for week and I don’t feel like looking it up) is that President Trump wants to have a military parade in Washington DC to honor the men and women of our military. The leftist freak-out has them calling Trump a dictator and a fascist. Interestingly enough, democrat Chuck Schumer also wanted a military parade but for some reason he wasn’t viewed as the second coming of Joseph Stalin nor was he compared to Hitler or Kim Jong Un.
Here’s a CBS report from 2014 where the liberal media calls a military parade “an honor reserved for heroes and champions.” Then, they got Schumer saying this about holding a parade to honor soldiers who fought the War on Terror:

“After all, they risked their lives to protect us. They experienced terrible trauma and tragedy along the way,” said Scumer.
Schumer petitioned the Department of Defense to hold a military parade in New York City. This parade would have included marching soldiers, military bands, and fighter jet fly-overs. You may be wondering why this parade never happened. Well, Schumer called for it to occur as soon as combat operations were over in Iraq and Afghanistan, but Obama never really came through with his promise to pull the US out of those regions.
The stated purpose of Schumer’s proposed parade was to show American soldiers that the entire country is behind them. Now that Trump is President, the liberals literally hate our military so that ship has sailed. With Trump’s proposed military parade, the left is planning a massive protest against our fighting men and women.
So why was a military parade a great idea 4 years ago and now it’s something only a fascist dictator would want? That’s an easy answer: Trump Derangement Syndrome. Liberals are so conditioned to oppose the freely-elected President of the United States that anything he says or does is instantly the worst thing ever on the left.
I think the President should use this bizarre affliction to his advantage and hit liberals with some reverse psychology. He should say that the only way to Make America Great Again is by not building a border wall. Within minutes Maxine Waters would introduce a bill funding a border wall and calling Trump a racist for not wanting one. Then Trump could say he wants to fully implement and expand ObamaCare and by the end of the week it would be repealed.
Democrats may be full of shit, but they are predictable. I see no reason why this shouldn’t be fully exploited.
