Leftist leaders of the world just can’t manage to do as they are expected with regards to acknowledging those who serve so we may live in safety. More importantly, these leaders somehow can’t pay respect to those who died to save the world from fascism.
On the 6th of June 1944, the largest seaborne invasion in history took place. A massive aircraft and naval bombardment prefaced the amphibious arrivals; this came on top of an airborne assault, which saw 24,000 American, British, and Canadian forces land shortly after midnight.
At 6:30 a.m., Allied infantry and armored units began arriving on the French shore. The 50-mile (80-kilometer) section of Normandy shore that was targeted was divided into five sectors: Utah, Gold, Juno, Omaha, and Sword.

The battle up the beaches was fierce. As a result, allied forces suffered about 10,000 casualties, with the Germans suffering between 4,000 and 9,000 losses.
Biden neglects the sacrifice
Instead of commemorating the 77th anniversary of D-Day on Sunday, President Biden chose to post a video of himself meeting with survivors of the 1921 Tulsa Massacre.
This week, Biden met with survivors of the Tulsa Massacre, saying that it was to help break the silence. Biden claimed that wounds develop in silence and, as awful as it is, wounds heal only through recollection.
None of the official government channels acknowledged the D-Day landings at the time.
This is not the first Biden blunder with regards to D-Day. in 2020, he confused the D-Day landings with Pearl Harbor.
Vice President Kamala Harris, however, did acknowledge the landings. She tweeted that we celebrate the troops who stormed the beaches of Normandy and liberated a continent on the 77th anniversary of D-Day. Harris also said the soliders’ bravery and sacrifice will live on in our hearts forever.
On the 77th anniversary of #DDay, we honor the heroes who stormed the beaches of Normandy and liberated a continent. We will never forget their courage and sacrifice.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau decides sexual misconduct is more important
During his Sunday proclamation celebrating Canadian Armed Services Day, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau failed to acknowledge the anniversary of D-Day. He did however address another topic, that being sexual misconduct and Gender-Based Violence (GBV).
Trudeau said that Canadians appreciate the Canadian Armed Forces members, both past and present for their sacrifice and service.
Trudeau also thanked members of the Canadian Armed Forces for their contributions to the country’s fight against COVID-19.
This was done primarily through two operations: Operation VECTOR (which helps federal, provincial, and local governments distribute COVID-19 vaccines) and Operation LASER (which aims to stop the pandemic from spreading across the country).

The Canadian Prime Minister then took the opportunity to raise the issue of Gender Violence and sexual misconduct in the ranks. He said that toxic culture, prejudice, violence, and harassment must all be eliminated.
Through increased investments in Budget 2021, he continued, they are also taking tangible steps to combat sexual misconduct and gender-based violence in the military, as well as better support survivors.
