“Not even trying to hide it”: America-hating Democrats endorse “F**k the Fourth” anti-American rally in Arizona


The following op-ed is written by a former Chief of Police and current staff writer for Law Enforcement Today.

PIMA COUNTY, AZ- In four years, the United States will celebrate the 250th anniversary of our independence from British tyranny. Who knew that in our 246th year of independence, similar tyranny is currently being perpetrated upon the American people.

The fact that Democrats hate America and all that she stands for has never been more evident, and this Fourth of July week, they are showing their true colors.

Liberty Daily reports that the Arizona Democrat Party is endorsing a “Fuck the Fourth” anti-American rally, which some Democrats claimed on social media is the so-called “fringe” element of the party.

However all one has to do is listen to what Democrats have said in the wake of a couple of recent Supreme Court decisions to realize this isn’t the fringe at all…this is the core of the party.

According to Monica Showalter at American Thinker:

But head on over to Pima County in Arizona and it’s “F— the Fourth.”

Such patriots. But don’t you dare question their patriotism.

Normal places honor their patriots. These Democrats have other ideas. There’s some kind of bottom that’s fallen out in their culture that just the idea of sending this garbage could ever get serious consideration as well as an actual tweet to promote the event and its idea.

The ‘F— the Fourth’ idea is as fringe as it gets, with its natural nihilism, but it’s been floating around for around 20 years. I remember getting an email from a fringe leftist group in Culver City, California calling for a ‘F—the Fourth’ party when I was an editorial writer for Investors Business Daily and recall dismissing the topic as so fringe it wouldn’t be worth writing about.

Now it’s gone mainstream, courtesy of the Democrats, who still view themselves as mainstream. In the Twitter post above, writer Arthur Schwarz notes that the group that called or that ‘F—the Fourth’ celebration is affiliated with Arizona’s supposed moderate Democrat senator, Mark Kelly.

The astonishing thing is that a tweet this hateful of America and its founding is still pretty disgusting to the general public, which includes what pollsters call ‘likely voters.’ It may be mainstream to the Democrat elites, but it’s utterly fringe to everyone else.

For Democrats, though, that’s the idea. They hate the flag, they hate the Founders, they hate the very idea of America as an autonomous state. Most of all, they hate the people, the patriotic Americans who wave the flag on the Fourth and enjoy the holiday. They can’t stand that.

Democrats, or at least those who get all the headlines—the Elizabeth Warren’s, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s, the Ilhan Omar’s, the Rashida Tlaib’s, the Richard Blumenthal’s, and yes, the Joe Biden’s have expressed loudly and clearly that they do not believe in American exceptionalism.

They do not believe that despite her faults, the United States of America is still the best country in the world. They slam our constitution as being a “relic” written by “old white men,” which in the case of Biden and Blumenthal is laughable.

Yet despite her faults, the United States of America has provided more opportunity to more people than any nation in the world. The fact someone like Ilhan Omar, who came to this country from war-torn Somalia, can preach to us about the evils of our system when she sits in our country’s government shows the sheer insanity of these people.

There are few, if any Democrat lawmakers who are willing to stand up against the radical component of their party, which in 2022 comprises an overwhelming majority of it.

When Supreme Court justices were threatened in their homes and when one, Brett Kavanaugh was the subject of an assassination plot, not one leader in power stepped up to condemn it and get their unhinged radicals to stand down. Weeks after the Kavanaugh plot was revealed, neither Biden, Speaker Nancy Pelosi nor Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer has said one word about it…not one.

A while back, the United States Senate held a vote on an abortion bill that would have allowed abortion right up to the moment a child was born. Every single Democrat but one voted in favor.

Think about that. Senate Democrats to a person except one voted in favor of aborting a child up until the moment they exit the birth canal…in other words, infanticide. Fringe? The whole damn Democrat party is fringe. And that includes Sens. Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ), who often receive credit as being the only “moderates” with a D following their names. Yet most times when push comes to shove, they vote the party line.

As Liberty Daily notes, “radical leftism is an intellectual plague and it’s spreading throughout the party faster than Omicron.”

And what of Democrat voters? Thankfully, some of them have decided the party has simply gone too far off the deep leftist end. While some have followed their party leaders off the cliff, many have decided that some of the moves being made by party leadership is way too radical for their tastes.

Despite that, many are so ensconced in the Democratic Party that they do not necessarily go along with the Democrats, however, are so opposed to Republican policies they merely follow along like sheep. As long as there are some who occasionally pump the brake on the radicals, the Democratic Party may be able to survive, albeit temporarily. Because the lunatics are definitely running the show.

Want an example?

“If we don’t have bodily autonomy and independence, then #FuckTheFourth,” tweeted the Women’s March.

There are some Democrats who have not yet gone off the deep end, and those are the Democrats who are laying low. However going into the midterms, it is vital that Republicans highlight the unhinged lunatics who now lead the Democratic Party.

Gone are the days of Bill Clinton, who despite his numerous faults, wasn’t a total insane radical.

Make no mistake about it Democrats are working with the mainstream media, big tech, social media, Hollywood, and big business to mess with the 2022 midterms.

All one has to do is pay attention to their focus on “voter suppression” and their insistence on using mail-in voting and ballot harvesting to realize that 2020 may not have been a one-off. More than ever, it is vital that Republicans remain laser focused on what Democrats are doing.

In order to save our Republic (for you Democrats, it’s NOT a Democracy), we must destroy Democratic majorities in the House and Senate this coming November. Otherwise there may be no country to save come 2024.

Re-fund the police

For more on the Democrat’s hatred for the Fourth of July, we invite you to read a story we wrote about Biden canceling the fireworks display at Mt. Rushmore last year.


PIERRE, SD – South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem on Thursday called it “political and punitive” that a federal judge upheld the Biden administration’s ban on a fireworks display at Mount Rushmore to celebrate Independence Day.

One year ago, then-President Donald Trump gave a speech before the massive monument to a large crowd before the famous fireworks display.

The South Dakota Republican slammed the move, claiming it was part of the “radical left’s agenda”:

“You know, the decision was really arbitrary. That’s why we’ll be appealing this decision, and the fight isn’t over. There weren’t specific reasons that had credibility, and we call this an unlawful act to not make sure that we can conduct our celebration on July 3 at Mount Rushmore like we did last year.

“This is part of the radical left’s agenda. They don’t want to celebrate America or freedom. They’re pushing critical race theory. They’re pushing the 1619 Project. And this is just another one of those battles to erase our trust, honesty, and patriotic history in this country.”

Because of Mount Rushmore’s status as a federal monument and park, the federal government has authority over what events can be held there. The state cannot overrule the federal government on federal property.

National Park Service Regional Director Herbert Frost said in a letter to the state in March that the NPS denied a permit for the fireworks this year, citing concerns about the spread of COVID-19, tribal opposition, and the environment.

Gov. Noem filed a lawsuit in April against the fireworks cancellation order, but Federal Judge Robert A. Lange ruled against the state. Judge Lange said that although the idea of holding the fireworks sounded like a good idea “at first blush,” the court could not rule on whether it was a good idea to hold the event:

“Court is not called upon to determine whether such a fireworks display is a good idea.”

Noem’s lawsuit alleged that the National Park Service’s denial of Fourth of July fireworks at Mount Rushmore was “arbitrary and capricious.”

Lange said Wednesday in his ruling:

“Ultimately, there are strong arguments in both directions as to the balance of harms, and the public interest in the short-term appears to lie with having the fireworks display, whereas more long-term interests militate against it at least for this year.”

Several other states had joined South Dakota in the lawsuit, and the Governor said the state would continue to fight the cancellation. Her Communications Director Ian Fury said prior to the ruling:

“Governor Noem is going to do everything in her ability to ensure that we can celebrate America’s birthday with fireworks at Mount Rushmore.”

The Governor tweeted about the ruling on Friday:

“In the radical Left’s view, America has become one of the villains of history. They promote kneeling for our national anthem. They tear down statues honoring our nation’s heroes.

“President Biden is caving to them by blocking Mount Rushmore fireworks.”

The 2020 fireworks display featuring a speech by President Trump was the first time the popular event was held in eleven years. The event had been stopped over fire concerns, but an environmental assessment conducted last year determined the fireworks would not present a serious fire concern.

President Trump’s speech attracted thousands of people, many not masked or social distancing during the height of the pandemic.

Despite Democratic attacks calling the event a “superspreader” event, the South Dakota Department of Health determined there was no increase in cases two weeks following the event, as would be expected had the virus spread significantly during the event.

Gov. Noem has stood by the decision not to institute a mask mandate in South Dakota throughout the pandemic, leaving it to local jurisdictions and the people to decide for themselves.

In January, the Republican Governor said:

“There was not a lot of data that back up that mask mandates work. Now there are some masks that work and when worn appropriately and when people wear the right ones appropriately in the right situations, they can make a difference.

“But mandates, if you look from city to city that has enacted them, it is hard to see a consistency in result.”

Governor Noem issues warning to Biden: There’s no ‘place here in South Dakota’ for illegal immigrants

April 17, 2021


During a recent airing of Fox News Channel’s “Ingraham Angle,” South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem said that if the Biden administration attempts to settle illegal immigrants in her state, those unlawfully present in the country are “not going to find a place here in South Dakota.”

On April 14th, Governor Noem appeared on the show “Ingraham Angle,” where the show host brought up the topic of illegal immigrants getting placed in states all over the country through enablement efforts from the Biden Administration.

In the South Dakota governor’s response, she proclaimed that there is not going to be any proverbial welcome mat for illegal immigrants in her state:

“[W]hat I have determined by watching the actions of this president is that he is making America unsafe. These are people that are crossing our border illegally.

“We do not know who they are. Multiple news sources have told us that we have people on the terrorist watch list that are getting into this country this way, and they’re not going to find a place here in South Dakota.”

The show host responded to Governor Noem’s comments on the matter, asking whether the federal government is legally compelled to inform state officials when illegal immigrants are essentially going to be bused into their respective state.

Governor Noem responded, noting that traditionally the federal government has extended the courtesy of informing state officials prior to attempting moves of this nature:

“They have in the past always communicated with governors; I wouldn’t put it past this administration to do it very differently or do it in a way that they didn’t have the authority to.

“Listen, from what we’re seeing happen at the southern border and what we’re seeing happen in so many of our cities that this administration isn’t shutting down – it’s dangerous.

It’s dangerous to America, to the people that live here, and it’s going to take governors standing up and setting down the rules on what’s really going to happen in their states.”

The matter of states getting involved in certain aspects of immigration enforcement is dicey territory.

While the meaning of Governor Noem’s comments are clear in that she wants her political colleagues in the state to make it unattractive for illegal immigrants to want to be in her state in the first place, there are swirling complexities regarding how states can deter illegal immigrants from residing in their states.

While Governor Noem’s comments regarding illegal immigrants not finding “a place here in South Dakota,” sounds telling of her feelings on the matter, it is legally murky what at the state level can be done to address illegal immigrants from entering a state.

As evidenced by laws impacting registered sex offenders, individuals can be banished from getting in close proximity to certain designated areas within a state,  i.e., schools, playgrounds, and such.

But a complete exile of an individual or class of individuals from a state within the country is also a legally gray area.
