Imaging that. In his dementia and hatred, Biden would see heroes forgotten just so he can undo a Trump executive order. Sick


Joe Biden has made it a point to undo everything that President Donald Trump did between January 20, 2017 and January 20, 2021.

To that end Biden issued an executive order on Friday to nix Trump’s “National Garden of American Heroes” The Associated Press reported.

He also ended executive orders aimed at the moderation of social media companies like Facebook and Twitter and revoked his 2020 executive order protecting federal statues from destruction by protesters.

In an executive order of his own, Biden abolished the Trump-formed task force to create the new monument, which the former president proposed last year. It was to have featured sculptures of dozens of American historical figures, including presidents, athletes and pop culture icons, envisioned by Trump as “a vast outdoor park that will feature the statues of the greatest Americans to ever live.”

Trump himself curated the list of who was to be included — Davy Crockett, Billy Graham, Whitney Houston, Harriet Tubman and Antonin Scalia, among others — but no site was selected and the garden was never funded by Congress.

Biden’s order also revoked Trump’s May 2020 order calling for the Department of Justice and the Federal Trade Commission to investigate social media companies for labeling or removing posts or entire accounts in what Trump claimed was a restriction on free speech. That order came before Trump himself was removed from platforms like Twitter and Facebook after the Jan. 6 insurrection at the Capitol.

The proposed park was set to commemorate “John Adams, Susan B. Anthony, Clara Barton, Daniel Boone, Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain, Henry Clay, Davy Crockett, Frederick Douglass, Amelia Earhart, Benjamin Franklin, Billy Graham, Alexander Hamilton, Thomas Jefferson, Martin Luther King, Jr., Abraham Lincoln, Douglas MacArthur, Dolley Madison, James Madison, Christa McAuliffe, Audie Murphy, George S. Patton, Jr., Ronald Reagan, Jackie Robinson, Betsy Ross, Antonin Scalia, Harriet Beecher Stowe, Harriet Tubman, Booker T. Washington, George Washington, and Orville and Wilbur Wright,” the executive order said.

“America owes its present greatness to its past sacrifices. Because the past is always at risk of being forgotten, monuments will always be needed to honor those who came before. Since the time of our founding, Americans have raised monuments to our greatest citizens. In 1784, the legislature of Virginia commissioned the earliest statue of George Washington, a “monument of affection and gratitude” to a man who ‘unit[ed] to the endowments of the Hero the virtues of the Patriot’ and gave to the world ‘an Immortal Example of true Glory.’ I Res. H. Del. (June 24, 1784). In our public parks and plazas, we have erected statues of great Americans who, through acts of wisdom and daring, built and preserved for us a republic of ordered liberty,” it said,

“These statues are silent teachers in solid form of stone and metal. They preserve the memory of our American story and stir in us a spirit of responsibility for the chapters yet unwritten. These works of art call forth gratitude for the accomplishments and sacrifices of our exceptional fellow citizens who, despite their flaws, placed their virtues, their talents, and their lives in the service of our Nation. These monuments express our noblest ideals: respect for our ancestors, love of freedom, and striving for a more perfect union. They are works of beauty, created as enduring tributes. In preserving them, we show reverence for our past, we dignify our present, and we inspire those who are to come. To build a monument is to ratify our shared national project,” it said.

“To destroy a monument is to desecrate our common inheritance. In recent weeks, in the midst of protests across America, many monuments have been vandalized or destroyed. Some local governments have responded by taking their monuments down. Among others, monuments to Christopher Columbus, George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin, Francis Scott Key, Ulysses S. Grant, leaders of the abolitionist movement, the first all-volunteer African-American regiment of the Union Army in the Civil War, and American soldiers killed in the First and Second World Wars have been vandalized, destroyed, or removed,” it said.[/s]

Wait, you mean Trump's Awesome Statue Garden never got built?

What held him up?

It's as if it was just a propaganda thing from Trump, something he never actually cared about. Fooled the rubes, of course.

My problem with the Statues is that it becomes a partisan monument with each party stuffing in statues for the heroes of their party.

Does Rush Limbaugh get a statue?
How about Hannity?

Perhaps he was hoping Mexico would pay for it.

"Mr Trump issued an order in June 2020 instructing the federal government "to prosecute to the fullest extent" any person "that destroys, damages, vandalizes, or desecrates a monument, memorial, or statue".

The proclamation - which singled out "rioters, arsonists and left-wing extremists" - was a popular talking point for the Republican president at his rallies."

I can't see how anyone would approve of mobs tearing down public statues

Yet biden issued an order nullifying the trump prohibition

That insane

My God. I wouldn't want to live if I had to think like that. I really would not want to be that angry and bitter. Guess working a shit job your whole life makes one like that, plus having to settle for the lowest common denominator to fuck and breed.has to be so GD awful

Why is this a bad idea? Frankly, the idea sounded kind of stupid when Trump said it. "Yes, let's put up a statue of Alex Trebek in the Garden of American Heroes.

Even though Alex Trebek was Canadian and um... all he did was host a game show.

Biden’s order also revoked Trump’s May 2020 order calling for the Department of Justice and the Federal Trade Commission to investigate social media companies for labeling or removing posts or entire accounts in what Trump claimed was a restriction on free speech. That order came before Trump himself was removed from platforms like Twitter and Facebook after the Jan. 6 insurrection at the Capitol.

Good point... Trump has no authority to do that. Social Media platforms are privately owned companies.... and frankly, they have every right, nay a DUTY to moderate objectionable content.

The real problem is, they don't do it enough because they don't want to spend the money to hire enough moderators.

Biden to cancel Trump Order Honoring Heroes​



Joe Bidden is stepping in to end this EO by Trump creating a garden honoring our heroes!

Thanks to Joe, we will no longer be forced to honor:
  • Neil Armstrong
  • Amelia Earhart
  • Whitney Houston
  • Christopher Columbus
  • Ronald Reagan
  • and Ruth Bader Ginsburg, among others.
Good for you Joe. What. A. Guy.

Joe also rescinded an order issued last June by Trump that directed the Department of Justice to prioritize prosecutions for individuals who vandalized federal monuments.

Joe Bidden: doing the good work that America demands. :smoke:

In universities they are replacing statues and paintings of greats of history with modern diverse people not so great. Most will not be remembered when this era ends.
