• Building, Not Destroying: Protecting American Memorials – Raising Up Something New for Her Heroes

    Surge Summary: The president has denounced the anarchistic destruction of America’s historic monuments and memorials. He’s also suggested the construction a “Garden of Heroes” to honor some of the nations’ greatest citizens.

    Over the July 4th weekend, a statue of famed abolitionist Frederick Douglass was torn down in Rochester, New York.  This is just the latest example of the insanity the radical left has unleashed on America.

    President Trump has boldly spoken out against the destruction of our historical monuments and memorials.  But he has also called for something else – building a “Garden of Heroes” featuring statues of some of our greatest citizens.

    Among those to be included in the “Garden of Heroes” are:  Susan B. Anthony, Clara Barton, Frederick Douglass, Amelia Earhart, Billy Graham, Martin Luther King, Jr., Christa McAuliffe, Audie Murphy, Douglas MacArthur, Ronald Reagan, Jackie Robinson, Antonin Scalia, Harriet Tubman, and Booker T. Washington.

    I would love to see this happen!  Instead of tearing down memorials, let’s build more of them honoring truly great Americans.  Make it a new American shrine to teach our children who we really are.

    While the left is committed to attacking and denigrating America, President Trump is dedicated to making America great again and to honoring the Americans who made this such a great nation.
