President Trump’s vision of soldiers marching and tanks rolling down the boulevards of Washington is moving closer to reality in the Pentagon and White House, where officials say they have begun to plan a grand military parade later this year showcasing the might of America’s armed forces.
Trump has long mused publicly and privately about wanting such a parade, but a Jan. 18 meeting between Trump and top generals in the Pentagon’s tank — a room reserved for top-secret discussions — marked a tipping point, according to two officials briefed on the planning.
Surrounded by the military’s highest-ranking officials, including Defense Secretary Jim Mattis and Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Gen. Joseph F. Dunford Jr., Trump’s seemingly abstract desire for a parade was suddenly heard as a presidential directive, the officials said.
I like it. We need more public celebration of the Warrior Class. What would be great would be to have Law Enforcement, Fire Rescue, and EMS march in full uniform, carrying flags right behind the military, or to give them their own day of patriotic celebration.
It has already been shown that simply display of a flag drives adoption of a conservative attitude. Imagine a whole parade of flags, as well as Military, Law Enforcement and Fire Rescue units from across the nation.
I hope they include a group of the guards from the Tomb of the Unknown to commemorate those POW’s and MIA who have made the ultimate sacrifice too. In addition to being a worthy commemoration of service, the mortal salience stimulus would be another measure reminding the nation of the K-strategy’s importance, and furthering the advance of conservatism.
Nothing would drive the left crazier.
