Liberal news website Salon took notice of President Trump’s November 7 declaration condemning Communism.
First, here’s the word for word White House press release:
The White House
Office of the Press Secretary
For Immediate ReleaseNovember 07, 2017
National Day for the Victims of Communism
Today, the National Day for the Victims of Communism, marks 100 years since the Bolshevik Revolution took place in Russia. The Bolshevik Revolution gave rise to the Soviet Union and its dark decades of oppressive communism, a political philosophy incompatible with liberty, prosperity, and the dignity of human life.
Over the past century, communist totalitarian regimes around the world have killed more than 100 million people and subjected countless more to exploitation, violence, and untold devastation. These movements, under the false pretense of liberation, systematically robbed innocent people of their God-given rights of free worship, freedom of association, and countless other rights we hold sacrosanct. Citizens yearning for freedom were subjugated by the state through the use of coercion, violence, and fear.
Today, we remember those who have died and all who continue to suffer under communism. In their memory and in honor of the indomitable spirit of those who have fought courageously to spread freedom and opportunity around the world, our Nation reaffirms its steadfast resolve to shine the light of liberty for all who yearn for a brighter, freer future.
Who could find a reason to be critical of that. Well …
The goofballs over at Salon just had to take a dump on Trump for his gesture condeming communism. They did it by making a ridiculous comparison to his statement on Holocaust Remembrance Day:
The rhetoric in the statement was a stark departure from the language used in January when Trump honored International Holocaust Remembrance Day. The Trump White House’s statement at the time omitted a reference to the Jewish people, who were targeted and killed by the Nazi regime.
“It is with a heavy heart and somber mind that we remember and honor the victims, survivors, heroes of the Holocaust. It is impossible to fully fathom the depravity and horror inflicted on innocent people by Nazi terror,” the statement said.
The Trump White House also failed to mention the political ideology that birthed Nazism. On Tuesday for the “National Day for the Victims of Communism,” the Trump White specifically called out communism, asserting it was “incompatible” with life and liberty. That same language did not appear in the Holocaust Remembrance Day statement, which did not even mention fascism.
The words “depravity,” “horror” and “Nazi terror” weren’t good enough for Salon.
Salon’s anti-Trump bias couldn’t be made any clearer.
