• Obama’s Response to Modern Chaos? America’s Young People Undergoing a ‘Great Awakening’

    Surge Summary: Democratic leaders are nearly unanimously silent in the face of progressives’ attacks on America’s historic memorials. Barack Obama suggests what is happening is another “Great Awakening”. Meanwhile, prominent Republicans are denouncing the anarchy.

    While President Trump is defending America, I have not been able to find a word from Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi or Chuck Schumer condemning the attacks against our founding fathers.  Their silence speaks volumes.  They dare not cross the progressive mob.

    [Wednesday] morning, a Fox News host said they checked and could find only one example of an elected Democrat official clearly denouncing the attacks on historic monuments.  I found another:  To his credit, Boston Mayor Martin Walsh also condemned attacks on that city’s historic monuments.

    Incredibly, Barack Obama suggested [Tuesday] at a Biden fundraising event that what is happening in our streets is another “Great Awakening.”  Clearly, Mr. Obama does not know America’s history.  The Great Awakening was a Christian revival in the 1730s that led to the American Revolution.

    But Obama sees attacks on the American founding and on the memorials to the Revolutionary War as another great awakening.  It is an awakening of Marxist, anti-American hatred, and it is anything but great.

    Thankfully, Republican members of Congress are finding their voices and joining President Trump in condemning this madness.  Kudos to Senators Mitch McConnellTom CottonTed CruzJoni ErnstMarco Rubio and to Rep. Chip Roy.

    I am also pleased to report that Interior Secretary David Bernhardt has requested that National Guard troops be deployed to protect our historic monuments.  “We will protect these monuments, and we will do it with dispatch and severity,” Bernhardt declared.

    The American people need to know that someone is standing against the mob and fighting for their values.  And this should not be a hard call.  The American people overwhelmingly oppose the left’s wanton destruction of our history. (Herehere and here.)
