On 6 June 1944, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt delivered one of the most arguably powerful prayer speeches in history given by an American president. Over Radio, Roosevelt’s speech was given as allied forces comprised of Americans, Brits and Canadians battled valiantly on the beaches of Normandy. This was D-Day in World War II. If the same speech were given today, in an ACLU and terrorist-accepting (if not terrorist-friendly) society, current presidents—most specifically Republican presidents—would be vilified. As a matter of fact, President George W. Bush has already been soundly denounced by the media and those who would placate the opponents of humankind for one word he used to describe a campaign against these enemies of humanity.
Note: The word used by President Bush was crusade and the terrorist and Western ‘mainstream’ media, alike, excoriated Bush for using it—just days after the brutal Islamist 9/11 attacks on the United States of America.
In his D-Day speech, President Roosevelt said: "And, O Lord, give us faith. Give us faith in Thee; faith in our sons; faith in each other; faith in our united crusade." Please bear in mind that the 1930’s and 1940’s liberal media was almost as appeasing and placating to the enemies of the USA as are our own current leftist channels of manipulated news. But, despite the media’s disagreement with President Roosevelt’s waging WW II he was—after all—a Democrat. And, just as today, with a few exceptions Democrats were largely given a pass by their media brothers and sisters—no matter what they did. Just five days after the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, President Bush told the American people: "This crusade, this war on terrorism is going to take a while." The Western media dutifully and with great politically-correct aplomb attacked President Bush for his use of the "C" word.
Note: Due to the 1092-1272 Crusades against the imposition of a fundamentalist Islamic caliphate, Muslims hate the term. Therefore, the accommodating media continue their suicidal political-correctness and placation the enemies of civilization. Suffice it to say, this is in opposition to logic, reason and just plain good common sense. But, persist they do.
FDR continued: "With Thy [God’s] blessing, we shall prevail over the unholy forces of our enemy." If President Bush were to call the current Islamic enemy "unholy", the press would haul him over the coals! But, then they already have—haven’t they? Roosevelt went on to say "Lead us to the saving of our country, and with our sister nations into a world unity that will spell a sure peace — a peace invulnerable to the schemings of unworthy men" and ended his speech with "Thy will be done, Almighty God." As today’s mainstream media do not even seem certain that they support the continuation of the USA, the reference to "saving of our country" would be minimized or chastised if delivered by President Bush. Most certainly, the reference to "Almighty God" would be challenged if not taken into court by the ACLU—and of course CAIR.
Note: Nowadays, the actual enemies of civilized cultures and its peoples are increasingly calling the shots as to how world affairs should be conducted. As an example, the New York Times has released and continues to release US classified information that assists Islam in its attempts to conquer the West. At any other time in history, this would be called treason. Today, however, it is merely considered by the elite to be "politically correct." After all, the media’s position appears to be that the enemies of our country should be given classified if not top-secret information that will help them in their fight against us. Do the leftist media truly believe that the playing field should be leveled so that the enemies of humanity are given equal footing with those who are pro-human? It appears so.
As history has shown us, there will always be those who believe in peace at any price. This has never been as true of them as it is today. And today, the media seem willing to affect anything and everything they need in order to achieve their goals—whatever they may be. Despite the ongoing and horrific attacks perpetrated by radical Islam against the rest of the world, the media continues to call the war against terrorists ‘Bush’s War’. This is deliberate ignorance on the part of the press. It is also, yet arguably, criminal. But, as long as we-the-people buy their newspapers and watch their anti-American television programming—which purports and promotes moral equivalencies between those who would destroy civilization and those who would save it—they will continue in their efforts to deceive. And their ongoing weapon of political correctness will continue to be the mainstay of their arsenal. After all, if the leftist elites can continue to glean the results they want by instilling guilt into the majority of any given population, why would the world’s violent enemies even need to use guns?
