Flashback: Schumer Called for Military Parade in 2014


Despite everything Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) said on Wednesday following the announcement of a new two-year budget deal — unlike others — Schumer surprisingly hasn't said much on the topic of a possible military parade in Washington D.C.

However, back in 2014, Schumer called for precisely what we’ll most likely see Democrats — and some Republicans — rally against in the near future, a military parade. They’ll all call the parade contrary to what a democracy should be. They’ll also try to make it almost completely about how President Trump is just trying to boost his own ego. We’ll hear all the typical rhetoric.

Just in case, here’s a reminder about what they used to think of military parades as their overlord — Schumer himself — stood with veterans in calling for a parade:

Some members of Congress must have selective memory, because people like Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C) has come out in defense of a parade commemorating and honoring our heroes in uniform through having a parade. They just don’t want a parade as a result of a call for one by Trump.
“I don’t mind having a parade honoring the service and sacrifice of our military members. I’m not looking for a Soviet-style hardware display. That’s not who we are,” Graham said. “It’s kind of cheesy. I think it shows weakness, quite frankly.”

Graham must be drinking a particular type of Kool-Aid, because without provocation, the Senator basically put the Trump and a Communist-era Russia narrative of the Left into the ether. It’s not clear what country Graham believes we all reside in, but it’s pretty clear — at least to Secretary of Defense Gen. James Mattis— that Trump’s want for a military parade is nothing more than a want to show appreciation for the U.S. military.

“I think we are all aware in this country of the president's affection and respect for the military,” Mattis said. “We have been putting together some options. We'll send them up to the White House for a decision.”

It’s pretty sad that it’s come to the point where people are actively complaining about a parade that honors the people the fight for the right of those same people to complain in the first place.
