On this day 73-years ago, 156,000 Allied troops stormed the beaches of Normandy on a day which has come to be known as D-Day. The military from the United States, Britain, Canada, and more banded together in the fight. For two months during World War II, from June 1944 to August 1944, young men fought heroically in the Battle of Normandy. Their actions resulted in the liberation of Western Europe from the control of Nazi Germany and their leader, Adolph Hitler.
Approximately 4,000 Allied troops lost their lives that day, including 2,000 Americans. In the days following D-Day, more than 9,000 were wounded or missing.
The invasions at Normandy were the largest seaborne invasions in history. It changed the world and is a day that should be honored, revered, and commemorated. On the 40th Anniversary of D-Day, then-President Ronald Reagan spoke these words on the beaches of Normandy.
We will pray forever that someday that changing will come. But for now, particularly today, it is good and fitting to renew our commitment to each other, to our freedom, and to the alliance that protects it.
We’re bound today by what bound us 40 years ago, the same loyalties, traditions, and beliefs. We’re bound by reality. The strength of America’s allies is vital to the United States, and the American security guarantee is essential to the continued freedom of Europe’s democracies. We were with you then; we’re with you now. Your hopes are our hopes, and your destiny is our destiny.
Here, in this place where the West held together, let us make a vow to our dead. Let us show them by our actions that we understand what they died for. Let our actions say to them the words for which Matthew Ridgway listened: “I will not fail thee nor forsake thee.”
Strengthened by their courage and heartened by their value [valor] and borne by their memory, let us continue to stand for the ideals for which they lived and died.
Fast forward to June 6, 2017.
The most used search engine in America is Google, which is led by Democrat billionaire Eric Schmidt, a staunch supporter of both Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama.
Google is known for their “Google doodles” in which they pay homage to someone or something in history with special pictures, graphics, etc. They have also sadly become known for ignoring or diminishing patriotic and Christian-centered holidays or historical events that speak of America’s exceptionalism.
On the 73rd Anniversary of D-Day, Google continued to do what they do…or rather fail to do. To commemorate D-Day and honor all those who stormed those beaches in Normandy leading to liberation from the Nazis, Google did…..ABSOLUTELY NOTHING.
Check it out for yourself.
That screenshot was taken personally by this author at approximately 5:40 pm Eastern.
Obviously, Eric Schmidt and the other progressive leftists at Google, who have been frequently in the news for targeting conservative websites for censorship, including canceling ad accounts of conservative sites and lowering them on search engines, choose not to heed President Reagan’s words to show those who died on D-Day that they understand what they died for…that freedom isn’t free.
Either that, or Google just doesn’t give a damn. The latter is probably the more accurately disgusting statement.
