We are all blessed to live in the greatest country in the world.
Philly Teachers for Trump would like to wish all Americans a happy Fourth of July!
To liberals who are frustrated with President Trump, a quote from George Orwell: “If liberty means anything at all, it means the right to tell people what they do not want to hear.”
To conservatives frustrated with the perpetual outrage of their liberal brothers, a quote from Woodrow Wilson: “The history of liberty is a history of resistance.”
To independents in the middle, a quote from Oliver Wendell Holmes: “One flag, one land, one heart, one hand, one nation evermore!”
To Collin Kaepernick, a quote from Emiliano Zapata, a Mexican revolutionary: “It’s better to die on your feet than to live on your knees.”
For those interested in celebrating Independence Day by watching tonight’s “Salute to America” festivities, coverage begins at 6:30 PM ET. It will take place at the Lincoln Memorial with a focus on celebrating our U.S. armed forces, who have made countless sacrifices for our freedom: the parade will include tanks, military units and drill teams, flyovers by the Navy Blue Angels and the new Marine One, and a speech from President Trump. The event concludes with one of the biggest fireworks displays ever in the D.C. area.
Fox News, PBS, and C-SPAN will be covering the event live and uninterrupted; as of now, the major news networks (ABC, CBS and NBC) and some cable news channels (including CNN and MSNBC) are boycotting the celebration and refusing to air the “Salute to America” live on their television channels, insisting the festivities are a partisan event led by Trump. These stations will, however, air excerpts on their primetime and late night shows, giving them the opportunity to make selective edits and provide critical commentary.
God bless and have a happy holiday, no matter how you choose to celebrate our nation’s independence!
