President Trump welcomed in the Fourth of July weekend on Friday night with a passionate speech at Mount Rushmore in South Dakota, and in a moving speech he defended “Judeo-Christian principles,” and condemned “far-left fascism.”
After the famous U.S. Navy Blue Angels filled the skies with thunder as they roared overhead, the president declared, “This monument will never be desecrated,” Trump declared amid cheers and applause. “These heroes will never be defaced. Their legacy will never, ever be destroyed. Their achievements will never be forgotten. And Mount Rushmore will stand forever as an eternal tribute to our forefathers and to our freedom.”
The recent attacks on the nation’s monuments, in combination with “cancel culture” and the rise of the Marxist ideology of the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement, were indicative of a “left-wing cultural revolution” that was threatening to “overthrow the American Revolution,” reported Fox News.
BLM, said the president has an agenda to destroy the “nuclear family structure,” which is in essence, the “bedrock of American life.”
The president went on to refer to athletes who have been kneeling in protest during the national anthem.”We only kneel to Almighty God,” said the president. “We will not be intimidated by bad, evil people. It will not happen.”
“This movement is openly attacking the legacies of every person on Mount Rushmore,” President Trump said, referring to George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt, and Abraham Lincoln.

The president also announced plans to create “a new monument to the giants of our past,” and he plans to sign an executive order to establish a “vast outdoor park” that will become a national garden of American heroes. It will feature the statues of the “greatest Americans to ever live.”
“From this night, and from this magnificent place, let us go forward united in our purpose and rededicated in our resolve. We will raise the next generation of American patriots,” he said.
The series of recent protests and riots across the United States was followed by the destruction of numerous monuments, as well as any high-level academics and experts on policy losing their jobs if they dared to challenge BLM.
“They want to silence us,” Trump said, as cheers of “U-S-A!” broke out. “But we will not be silenced. … We want free and open debate, not cancel culture. … Their goal is not a better America. Their goal is to end America. … But just as in centuries past, the American people will stand in their way.”
“Those who seek to erase our heritage want Americans to forget our pride and our great dignity, so that we can no longer understand ourselves or America’s destiny,” President Trump said, adding that politicians need to confront the moment with “bravery.”
“For the sake of our honor, for the sake of our children, for the sake of our union, we must protect and preserve our history, our heritage, and our great heroes,” he continued.”
“We will never surrender the spirit and the courage, and the cause of July 4, 1776,” he said. “Upon this ground, we will stand firm and unwavering,” he added.
