‘Britons never, never, never shall be slaves,’ so one of the old British rallying cry goes.
Canada should no longer be a slave to Trump either – on Trade, on NATO or any other matter vital to the future of our lives
A Brief Comment from Doug Draper
Posted July 13th, 2018 on Niagara At Large
Trump landed on British soil this second week of July and right on cue, up in the skies above London went the Trump Baby Balloon, complete with diapers, small hands and a little phone for tweeting – all to the cheers of countless many British citizens who don’t want Trump in their country.
And who can blame them?
The nerve of this reality show character insulting and slamming Britain, along with Canada and other long-time allies, for not investing enough in the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) after Britain took such a horrible pounding during the Second World War and it had to beg the United States over and over again to finally join the fight against Hitler’s Nazis.
By the way, when it comes to investing blood, flesh and money in military operations, where has Trump’s own family been in all this?
His grandfather, Friedrich, was a draft dodger in his native Bavaria (now part of Germany) before moving to the western coast of North America during the gold rush years of the late 1800s and, among other things, operating a brothel.
His father Fred never served in the U.S. military nor did he serve during the Vietnam War. And not one of his children did what countless hundreds of other young Americans have done during shooting wars in the Middle East and other countries overseas, and volunteers to serve in their country’s military.
But all of that seems to be okay with Trump’s cheering supporters as he goes on slamming Britain, Canada and other countries for not investing enough in the military.
So Hail Britannia and the countless tens of thousands of British citizens that marched in protest of Trump in the streets of London this July 13th. . And last but not least, hail to that Trump Baby Balloon.
