Trump unveils historic names to become statues in National Garden: Washington, MLK, Kobe Bryant, others

“Each individual has been chosen for embodying the American spirit of daring and defiance, excellence and adventure, courage and confidence, loyalty and love”

Throughout his presidency, Trump has always placed America first.

Even in his final days, he found a way to pay tribute to our nation’s heroes.

In one of his final executive orders before leaving office, President Trump updated the progress on statues to be built for the National Garden of American Heroes.

The list of figures who will be recognized with a statue was released Monday after months of attacks on our nation’s monuments in several major cities, BizPacReview reports.

“The chronicles of our history show that America is a land of heroes. As I announced during my address at Mount Rushmore, the gates of a beautiful new garden will soon open to the public where the legends of America’s past will be remembered,” Trump said in his executive order.

“Across this Nation, belief in the greatness and goodness of America has come under attack in recent months and years by a dangerous anti-American extremism that seeks to dismantle our country’s history, institutions, and very identity,” he added.

“The heroes of 1776 have been desecrated, with statues of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and Benjamin Franklin vandalized and toppled. The dead who gave their lives to end slavery and save the Union during the Civil War have been dishonored, with monuments to Abraham Lincoln, Hans Christian Heg, and the courageous 54th Regiment left damaged and disfigured,” Trump noted.

“The brave warriors who saved freedom from Nazi fascism have been disgraced with a memorial to World War II veterans defaced with the hammer and sickle of Soviet Communism,” he said.

“The National Garden is America’s answer to this reckless attempt to erase our heroes, values, and entire way of life. On its grounds, the devastation and discord of the moment will be overcome with abiding love of country and lasting patriotism,” he added.

“This is the American way. When the forces of anti-Americanism have sought to burn, tear down, and destroy, patriots have built, rebuilt and lifted up. That is our history,” he urged. “In keeping with this tradition, America is responding to the tragic toppling of monuments to our founding generation and the giants of our past by commencing a new national project for their restoration, veneration, and celebration.”

The list of heroes includes America’s Founders, such as Washington, Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin, Alexander Hamilton and John Adams. Other figures include Betsy Ross, Patrick Henry, Francis Scott Key, Paul Revere and more.

Christopher Columbus, Sojourner Truth, Harriet Tubman and Frederick Douglass will also be honored, as will Civil Rights leaders like Booker T. Washington, Martin Luther King Jr., and Rosa Parks.

The garden will also include American artists, investors, explorers and sports figures – such as the late Los Angeles Lakers legend Kobe Bryant – film starts, military members and American presidents.

“In short, each individual has been chosen for embodying the American spirit of daring and defiance, excellence and adventure, courage and confidence, loyalty and love,” Trump said. “Astounding the world by sheer power of their example, each one of them has contributed indispensably to America’s noble history, the best chapters of which are still to come.”

    I personally do not believe sports figures nor actors/musicians should be included unless they have made a “positive” effort for the rights of all Americans and gave directly to towns/ cities/people that were destroyed by the BLM and Antifascists this past year! They (sports people/actors/musicians) have not earned that right. They helped with the division and destruction of this country.

BLM DC Makes Vile Comment about Officers Called ‘Heroes’ When Shot in the Line of Duty

Published

BLM

A suspect is still at large after opening fire on police officers in Northwest D.C. Sunday night. One officer was shot, and fortunately suffered non-life-threatening injuries and was released from the hospital after being treated.

Black Lives Matter took the opportunity to make vicious remarks about cops who are targeted. The D.C. Police Department gave a press conference detailing the situation that had occurred and applauded the police department for “courageously” chasing the suspect before he was able to evade police.

The Police Chief asked for citizens to avoid the area where the suspect was last seen and encouraged the public to reach out to their department with any information that could be helpful to the case.

Black Lives Matter took the opportunity to promote its #StopMPD campaign and warn against “copaganda.” Black Lives Matter DC’s official Twitter account posted:

“This is the point we’ve been making for months, Look at the reaction and coverage tonight. Tearjerker press conferences and proclamations of heroes coming soon. Imagine if people knew these folks’ names. Being Black in DC is more dangerous than any job.”

In a follow-up tweet, the account stated “This isn’t to say these scenarios represent what happened tonight, but it does explain our skepticism, interest in details, and highlights the difference in how people talk and act when an officer is hurt vs when they hurt a Black person. No one asks what the cop did wrong.”

Another Victim Thrown on NYC Subway Tracks, 62-Year-Old Man Suffered Lacerated Leg

NYC Subway

Just over a week ago, 40-year-old Asian American Michelle Alyssa Go was pushed to her death in front of a train on the subway tracks of New York City’s Times Square. Another individual was shoved onto the tracks on Sunday.

New York Police Department said both attacks were unprovoked and called upon leadership officials to do more to protect the city’s citizens. Sunday’s victim was a 62-year-old man whose name has not been publicly released.

He was pushed onto the tracks in Lower Manhattan’s southbound train at the Fulton Street subway station. He sustained a leg laceration and police said there have not yet been any arrests in connection with the incident.

Go’s attacker was identified as Martial Simon, a 61-year-old homeless man with a history of violence and mental health issues. He was charged with second-degree murder. The New York Times reported that shortly before Go’s death, another woman saw him acting suspiciously and later told police she was afraid he was going to push her onto the tracks.

Subway attacks are the latest increase of issues that face Democrat New York Mayor Eric Adams. Adams has pledged to fight crime but has already implemented plans to minimize punishments for criminals in an effort to keep young men, particularly of color, out of prison.

Despite overall subway riding being down since the pandemic, the subway system has seen an increase in assaults last year. “According to the NYPD, 461 felony assaults were reported on the subway system in 2021, of which 30 involved a person being pushed onto the subway tracks. That’s an increase from the year before when there were 26 reported subway-pushing incidents” reports The Washington Post.

New York’s liberal leadership have been vocal supporters of the defund the police movement and saw the city turn to the wild west with protestors taking over the city during the Black Lives Matter movement shortly after George Floyd’s death. Rising crime and gun violence have plagued the city.
