Count me among the officially schooled, I had always thought D-Day commemorated the brave soldiers who stormed the beaches at Normandy and turned back the Nazis. Instead, it turns out it’s supposed to be a day to celebrate America’s foremost Nazi sympathizer.
“We are celebrating the anniversary, 75 years of D-Day. This is the time where we should be celebrating our President, the great achievements of America, and I don’t think the American people like the constant negativity.” – Ronna McDaniel, the chairwoman of the Republican National Committee.
One thought on “Setting Us Straight about D-Day”
I always had ambivalent feelings about the USA’s position during the two World Wars. First two years of so called neutrality during which they sold supplies to both sides, only to intervene at a moment that is opportune for them. With some hindsight; an earlier, more firm attitude towards Germany and Japan (who was a US ally during WW 1 for the sake of picking up the German and Russian concessions in China) could have prevented a lot of bloodshed.
