Democrats seem to be apoplectic over President Trump’s remarks to the Boy Scout Jamboree in West Virginia this week — too partisan, too sharp…
…too enthusiastic a response from the Boy Scouts is more like it.
Consider this: 45,000 young men, their parents, and their Scout Leaders all cheered President Trump. They weren’t bothered at all with Trump’s tribute to the Boy Scouts of America, an institution that the political left has hammered hard against by leveraging their sponsors to bend to agendas that frankly have splintered scouting in America.
Boy Scout values are American values. And great Boy Scouts become great, great Americans.
Here’s the line that probably riled the media up more than anything else.
I’m waving to people back there so small I can’t even see them. Man, this is a lot of people. Turn those cameras back there, please. That is so incredible. By the way, what do you think the chances are that this incredible massive crowd, record setting, is going to be shown on television tonight? One percent or zero?
The Boy Scouts? CHEERED.
Agree or disagree with Trump, the institutions that the left has so carefully taken over these last few decades are being systematically exposed by the Trump-style populism.
By the way, just a question, did President Obama ever come to a Jamboree?
That line right there? Was the loudest response from the Boy Scouts themselves — a loud “NO!” from these young men.
So long as the Democrats continue to be tone deaf to realities on the ground, they will continue to be shocked at the reception — and that’s what this was — the Boy Scout Jamboree gave to President Trump. These young men are going to go back home remembering this event, and remembering that they were not alone in their support of the president.
What’s more, these are the future leaders of America. For the media to write an alternative narrative of what actually happened will be remembered by those present.
That the political left still doesn’t understand that progressive policies and the Democrats writ large are by far more unpopular than the president himself? Speaks volumes as to how shallow the left has truly become, especially in the face of Middle America’s response.
