Schumer, de Blasio backed parade for military 4 years ago ? despite Dem outrage now | Fox News

While Democratic lawmakers are fuming over President Trump's apparent desire for a military parade down Pennsylvania Avenue, some top Dems were marching to a different tune just a few years ago.

In 2014, Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., called for a welcome home ticker-tape parade for veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, calling it a “longstanding American tradition.”

“With the war in Afghanistan winding down, now is the time to keep with longstanding American tradition and kick off a campaign for the first New York City welcome home parade for troops that served in Iraq and Afghanistan,” Schumer, now the Senate minority leader, said, according to The New York Daily News.

Once again, for the slow in the class, a parade in celebration and honoring an achievement. Not a parade to give Dear Leader a photo op playing Commander in Chief for a Day.

Nobody objects to a victory parade.
Thanks from Camelot, Hollywood and Clara007

Furthermore did those parades happen?

If exposing Trumps desire to be treated as a “Glorius Leader” with a huge military parade puts the kibosh on this idiotic idea then GREAT! But as of right now, the Pentagon is in the planning stages.

This whole "parade" mess is getting more ludicrous by the minute. First the RW says Dems don't/won't support the military, but the Schumer/de Blasio suggestion was to welcome back the troops and for veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, calling it a “longstanding American tradition.”
As the article states, the last parade was in 1991 under HW Bush. when Dwight D. Eisenhower was president and Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev presided over large military parades showing off the latest in Soviet military might. Some in the White House approached Eisenhower, himself a decorated military general, suggesting the U.S. do the same, to show off American might.

"Eisenhower said absolutely not, we are the pre-eminent power on Earth. For us to try to imitate what the Soviets are doing in Red Square would make us look weak."

We don't need to prove a thing. Every country on the globe knows our strength. As I've said before, IF TRUMP wants a parade he can write a check to the U.S. government for it.
Problem solved.

AND what about our parade for the Vietnam vets?? 10 years late?? 1982. Nov. 13— Thousands of Vietnam veterans marched away from a decade of indifference today and paraded proudly past the White House to a memorial whose history recalls the divisiveness of their war.

Disabled veterans hobbled along with canes, gamely responding to cadence counts; paraplegics wheeled themselves or were pushed; blind veterans listened to reports of what was happening from their friends, and an army of marchers and walkers, dressed in everything from baggy fatigues to camouflage suits to full-dress uniforms or sport jackets, moved slowly along Constitution Avenue, waving tiny American flags and raising their fists in triumph.

AND.... it was not the heroes' welcome, the ticker-tape parade with roaring crowds and an outpouring of gratitude, that many veterans openly long for. Long sections of the viewing stand were half empty, and some blocks along the 10-block parade route had but a single broken line of spectators on each side.

''We Killed, We Bled, We Died for Worse Than Nothing.'' Former Marine, Peter Poccia

VIETNAM VETERANS' PARADE A BELATED WELCOME HOME - NYTimes.com

Of course, as we all know, our C & C didn't kill, bleed or die, because HE got deferments...because of bone spurs in his....uhh...right...uh...maybe it was LEFT....or maybe it was BOTH heels?? He can't seem to remember.
Thanks from Hollywood

What a crock of semi-lucid irrelevant bullshit on your part.
