Dems Furious Over Trump's Military Parade, But Won't Tell You What JFK Had in His

Share

When President Donald Trump announced that he wanted to have a military parade after watching France’s military parade, liberal heads exploded. Some people even went as far to say that the suggestion was reminiscent of militant Chinese and North Korean regimes.

But is that really the case? Are military parades only something that Communist regimes do? Not even close. All you have to do is go back and look at John F. Kennedy’s inauguration day.

The day was Jan. 20, 1961, and people were lined up on Pennsylvania Ave to watch the inaugural parade for a newly sworn-in President Kennedy.

As military units marched down the street, onlookers got a glimpse of not one, but four nuclear missiles as they made their way down the street. The Pershing I IRBM, Lacrosse, Nike Hercules, and Nike Zeus were all showcased in this inaugural parade.

As intimidating as this is, Trump’s parade isn’t expected to have anything close to this.

Could you imagine the uproar that would take place if this happened today? Of course, since the Democrats claim Kennedy as their own, you won’t hear them talking about this military parade.

Did you know there were nuclear missiles in JFK's inaugural parade?

However, John F. Kennedy wasn’t the only president to show off nukes in a parade. Dwight D. Eisenhower showed off a nuclear cannon along with four companies of tanks and artillery.

Obviously none of the nuclear missiles were armed, but it still makes a great display.

Showcasing the military isn’t reserved for authoritarian dictatorships. As you can see, past presidents had no problems exhibiting our military prowess to the American people and to the world.

Sure, those were different times, but these photos speak volumes. So, if the left wants to make a big deal about Trump’s military parade, all they need to do is take a look at these photos.

I seriously doubt we’ll hear anyone from the left call JFK an authoritarian dictator.
