Trump's speech: Democrats refused to show support on many issues which all Americans should get behind.

As has been well reported, many democrats refused to stand, applaud or show any sort of support for even some of the most non-partisan issues covered in President Trump's speech.

As many people will have been disgusted to learn, some democrats, including Keith Ellison and Debbie Wasserman Schultz, even refused to stand during a standing ovation1 for Carryn Owens, the widow of U.S. Navy special operator, Senior Chief William ‘Ryan’ Owens:

To be clear, Keith Ellison and Debbie Wasserman Schultz stood when Carryn Owens was introduced, but as you can see from the video above, they did not stand for the long extended standing ovation she received.

U.S. Navy special operator, Senior Chief William ‘Ryan’ Owens gave his life to protect the rights and the freedom of American citizens. It is that freedom that allows democrats like Keith Ellison and Debbie Wasserman Schultz D.W. Schultz to choose to remain seated during a standing ovation for a fallen hero.

However, I also have the freedom and the right to regard people like Keith Ellison and Debbie Wasserman Schultz D.W. Schultz as utterly disgusting people.

Disagreeing over policy is expected and is important for democracy. But not showing support for a fallen hero is the actions of a morally bankrupt person. This should have been a moment of unity.

This type of behavior was mirrored by many democrats throughout President Trump's speech, even on many matters which should not have been partisan issues.

For example, when Trump said:

"We have begun to drain the swamp of government corruption by imposing a five year ban on lobbying by executive branch officials..."

This was greeted by applause from republicans. However, the majority of democrats refused to stand and applaud, and in fact the most of them looked thoroughly unimpressed with the policy of ending corruption!2

How does that look to the viewers? President Trump wants to end corruption and many democrats refuse to support him in this. What kind of message does that send to the American people? Viewers are going to ask, 'Why are democrats opposed to ending corruption?'

When Trump announced:

"I am calling upon members of both parties to pass an education bill that funds school choice for disadvantaged youth, including millions of African-American and Latino children."

Once again the majority of democrats refused to show support.3 Can we therefore assume that democrats don't want to help disadvantaged children?

3 See 45:30.

When President Trump said, "My job is not to represent the world. My job is to represent the USA," this received an enthusiastic show of support from republicans, but very little support from the democrats.4

4 See 1:00:12.

Again, when Trump declared, "America must put its own citizens first, because only then, can we truly make America great again," this was greeted with enthusiastic agreement from republicans, but indifference from most democrats.5

5 See 11:22.

What is wrong with these people? What is so controversial about a country putting its own people first? Surely that should be the duty of all nations?

To be fair, there were some issues on which democrats showed reluctant support. As the speech progressed, more democrats seemed to realize how stupid they were looking by refusing to applaud issues which all Americans should get behind. On some points their stubborn behavior did ease off slightly. Also, not all democrats demonstrated childish behavior throughout the speech. There were some level-headed democrats who exhibited maturity and showed support on non-partisan issues.

For example, paid family leave6 and increased funding for veterans7 received a positive response from both parties.

6 See 41:43.
7 See 53:29.


When Trump declared, "We will work with our allies, including our friends and allies in the Muslim world, to extinguish this vile enemy (ISIS) from our planet," this received strong applause from both sides, although even on an issue like ISIS some democrats still refused to stand!8

8  See 23:12.

On other issues, democrats were divided.

For example, when President Trump talked of bringing down the artificially high price of drugs, this drew a mixed response from democrats. A few rational democrats immediately stood to their feet, and more followed9 as they no doubt realized how bad they would look if they appeared to support artificially high drug prices.

9 See 39:45.

Those democrats who refused to show support for issues which America should be unified over, only hurt themselves. They present the image of democrats being childish and petty. It shows them as putting the interests of the party over the interests of the nation.

I'm not naive. This is how politics works. I get this. I realize that historically, there are examples of both republicans and democrats behaving in such a foolish self-damaging manner.

But when President Trump talks about dismantling crime cartels and making communities safer, this should not be a controversial position to take. America needs to be unified on issues like these.

This isn't a sports match where you cheer for your side. This is the future of America. Many of the extreme left have been brainwashed to hate every single thing Trump says and does, and sadly in some cases, democrat politicians are apparently mirroring this behavior.

Politicians need to put aside petty party interests, and act in the interests of the nation. There are many policies and issues for which there are legitimate arguments on both sides of the debate, but democrats need to pick their battles. There are several issues which are clear cut, such as ending human trafficking and defeating ISIS, and we need to work together on these issues.

Credit to the few level-headed democrats who showed they are prepared to put America first and work together on issues which all Americans should support. However, based on the response to President's Trump's address, sadly, democrats like this appear to be few and far between.
