A Day that Will Live in Infamy

Today we commemorate the 75th anniversary of the Japanese sneak attack on Pearl Harbor. 2,403 Americans died and 1,178 were wounded that sunny Sunday morning in December. The attack on Pearl Harbor propelled the US into World War II. Millions of young American men and women enlisted to serve their country. Many paid the ultimate price. No family paid a greater price than the Sullivan Family of Iowa. All five of their sons were killed when the Japanese sunk their ship – the USS Juneau – in 1942.

Many things have changed in the 75 years since the Pearl Harbor attack, none more than the American people. While members of the Greatest Generation knowingly faced the risks of fighting for their country, today’s 18- 24 year olds fear microaggressions … that someone might say or do something that offends them. Universities have counselors on duty 24/7 in case someone is offended by a Halloween costume or sees TRUMP written in chalk on a sidewalk. There are safe spaces, puppies, kittens and bunnies to pet, children’s games and coloring books in case someone they didn’t vote for becomes president.

Political correctness has played a major role in the country’s thought process. Since the Japanese are not Caucasian, today’s liberals would question what the US did to cause them to attack Pearl Harbor. We all know the United States is a racist, sexist homophobic, xenophobic country. If we just would have hugged the Japanese, they wouldn’t have attacked us. There would likely be protests in support of the Japanese against the racist Americans as well as anti-war protests in every major US city.

This change has affected the highest levels of the government. Japanese Prime Minister Abe will be the first since the attack to visit Pearl Harbor. He plans to pray for the dead, but has said nothing about apologizing. That doesn’t sit well with the small number of surviving WWII veterans. Presidential press secretary Josh Earnest said he can understand the veterans’ feelings but called them “embittered” and suggested they “get over it.”

Hopefully, the United States in beginning a new era – one in which its people will have greater pride in their country and the government will start putting the United States, its interests and its citizens first once again.

    I wish the author of this article hadn’t titled it the way he did…”Deplorable” is used sarcastically in the title.

    But the article is excellent…I’m anxious to see the movie.
