Last night, retired U.S. Army Capt. Florent Groberg took to the stage at the Democratic National Committee Convention, and as he listed off the names of his fallen brothers-in-arms, the delegates took extremely disturbing action.
Of course, we shouldn’t really be surprised that the America-hating, anti-war left totally disrespected a war hero, but regardless it’s still upsetting when they do. It’s hard to imagine what it was like for Captain Groberg as the delegates turned their backs to him and chanted while he spoke, but like a good soldier he stayed the course and finished speaking despite the obvious lack of appreciation from the crowd.
Here’s some of the reports, via Weasel Zippers:
This week has turned out to be a total disgrace from the Democrat Party. From omitting American flags from the stage until they were pressured to add them, to the anti-law enforcement night on Tuesday, when Black Lies Matters activists and the mothers of criminals were given the stage to speak to the audience, the Democrats have shown where their loyalties lie. Unfortunately, they’re not with We the People, but instead with the lawless left, who seem to be pushing us to the brink of Anarchy.
As for the disrespectful delegates at the convention who had the nerve to disrupt Captain Groberg as he spoke, I’ll leave them with a poem from Charles M. Province titled, “It Is The Soldier.”
It is the Soldier, not the minister
Who has given us freedom of religion.
It is the Soldier, not the reporter
Who has given us freedom of the press.
It is the Soldier, not the poet
Who has given us freedom of speech.
It is the Soldier, not the campus organizer
Who has given us freedom to protest.
It is the Soldier, not the lawyer
Who has given us the right to a fair trial.
It is the Soldier, not the politician
Who has given us the right to vote.
It is the Soldier who salutes the flag,
Who serves beneath the flag,
And whose coffin is draped by the flag,
Who allows the protester to burn the flag.
