Biden Continues Assault on American History, Cancels Trump’s “National Garden of American Heroes”

AMAC Exclusive

Biden

Joe Biden’s blind crusade to undo and destroy every part of President Trump’s legacy seemingly knows no bounds. Last week, Biden set his sights on Trump’s National Garden of American Heroes, a planned sculpture park honoring our country’s greatest historical figures, which was announced last year. Biden’s decision to cancel the Garden is the latest salvo in an escalating culture war that has seen the Biden administration fully submit to far-left liberal ideologues who want to radically remake the country’s identity.

President Trump first announced the National Garden of American Heroes during his landmark speech at Mount Rushmore on July 3, 2020, in response to what he called “a merciless campaign to wipe out our history, defame our heroes, erase our values, and indoctrinate our children.” As AMAC has reported, activist groups like Black Lives Matter along with the intellectual left, exemplified by the New York Times’ 1619 Project, are actively seeking to reframe American history as a story of racism and oppression rather than hope and progress. As the President noted in his speech, this dangerous and divisive ideology is infecting everything from corporate board rooms to elementary school classrooms. At the time Trump gave his Mount Rushmore address, the country was experiencing a wave of attacks on statues and monuments of historical figures like George Washington, Christopher Columbus, and Abraham Lincoln.

At the conclusion of his remarks, he revealed that he had just signed an executive order to create the new national monument. The Order stated that “on [the Garden’s] grounds, the devastation and discord of the moment will be overcome with abiding love of country and lasting patriotism. This is the American way. When the forces of anti-Americanism have sought to burn, tear down, and destroy, patriots have built, rebuilt, and lifted up. That is our history.”

The park would have boasted hundreds of statues, ranging from founding fathers like George Washington and Samuel Adams to warriors for justice like Harriet Tubman and Martin Luther King, Jr., to sports icons like Cy Young and Kobe Bryant. Shortly before leaving office, President Trump issued another Executive Order that included nearly 250 additional names for inclusion in the Garden and further paved the way to begin work on the project. The Department of the Interior was well underway in making preparations to begin construction and had narrowed the location down to a few finalists. All in all, it appears that the initiative was nearly fully baked as Trump departed the White House and only needed the green light from the new Secretary of Interior.

Instead, Biden unceremoniously dropped his own Executive Order canceling the project late on a Friday afternoon earlier this month—presumably hoping to avoid much media coverage heading into the weekend. The Biden administration likely understands that its radical interpretation of American history is out of step with most Americans – Democrats and Republicans alike – who love their country. There was no attempt at an explanation from the White House as to why Biden opposed the patriotic, pro-American project designed to honor our country’s heroes.

The grim irony of Biden’s move to revoke Trump’s Executive Order was not lost on conservatives, who pointed out that the cancellation of the Garden of Heroes is effectively confirmation of Trump’s claims about Democrats’ attempts to “dismantle our country’s history, institutions, and very identity.”

The Garden was slated to include monuments to Americans from all races, religions, and creeds, reflecting the great diversity of America that Democrats constantly claim to revere. Yet the Biden administration canceled the project anyway. In doing so, Biden has now employed the full power of the federal government in service of liberal cancel culture, bending the knee to the left-wing activists that now control the Democratic Party.

While the corporate media largely ignored Biden’s latest attempt to erase or cancel American history, some conservatives took to social media to express their outrage. In a tweet, freshman Senator Bill Hagerty (R-TN) called the decision “incredibly discouraging,” going on to say that “our exceptional history and heroes should be celebrated, not denigrated.” Congresswoman Lauren Boebert (R-CO) was more direct, tweeting that “Biden canceled the National Garden of American Heroes because he hates America, hates our history and is ok with the cancel culture tearing down America’s statues.”

Since taking office, Biden has gone about rescinding nearly all of President Trump’s Executive Orders to promote patriotism and the teaching of American history, replacing them with policies that instead support a “woke” version of history that views America as inherently racist and sexist. The same day Biden killed Trump’s orders creating the Garden, Biden also rescinded a Trump executive order that directed the Department of Justice to prioritize prosecuting people who desecrated federal monuments, which Trump signed in response to widespread riots last summer.

While the National Garden of American Heroes may be just the latest casualty in the left’s war on American history, it could prove to be a rallying point for conservatives and all Americans tired of seeing their founders and greatest icons torn down, both literally and figuratively.

There could still be an opportunity for the project to be built, however. If enterprising Republicans in the House and Senate insist on including it as part of future legislation, it is hard to imagine Congressional Democrats would die on the hill of stopping a statuary garden—and equally unlikely that Biden would veto legislation for that reason alone. Perhaps patriotic Americans across the nation will come together and let their members of Congress know they want to see the National Garden of American Heroes built before the goal originally envisioned, the 250th anniversary of American independence in 2026.

The longer Biden is in office the more credence I give to Jill’s first husband’s claims. At first I thought it was just sour grapes but no longer. Not only is Biden a liar and a thief, as plagiarism constitutes both, he is an adulterer. I’m afraid we have a vicious ( Ever heard of being “Borked”) left winger in office who just might be capable of destroying what makes this country a magnet to people around the world.

I doubt that! When Biden has invited the world to invade our borders, stopped deportation and the building of the wall, and is letting most in without having to appear in court ever. That includes a great many with Covid 19.

Unfortunately he had a large contingent of the living dead / brain dead also. Not enough to have elected him without the illegal phony votes but still an unbelievable number.

Biden probably dropped the executive order because he didn’t realize that he signed it anyway. Someone in the cabinet probably said that it would make the socialists look like they were anti-American. Ha Ha Ha Ha. Almost funny if it weren’t so tragic. The democrats need all the money they can get to finance the Illegal immigration problems that continue to mount up. Pretty soon they will have to raise OUR taxes. Ha Ha Ha Ha.

Biden is such a pathetic loser, he knows he will NEVER be considered for ANYTHING like the Garden of Heroes. He is so filled with hate that he will destroy everything that PRESIDENT Trump has accomplished and he will do it at warp speed, as we have seen already!

This is what communist/muslims do. They destroy all your history so you don’t know the godly heritage you have. Obama/Biden are destroying our heritage. The $6 trillion dollar budget is to bankrupt America. The commie/muslims then take over. This is Obama/Biden’s endgame!!!

The $6 trillion is not a “budget”, it is a deficit. And, it is more than that. Our country is essentially bankrupt now! The big magic hole full of money is drying up. Even for the socialists. When they run out of “freebies”, maybe people will start to wake up! Hopefully by 2022.

This half past dead of a man is a disgrace to my country. He should be REMOVED henceforth along with his Marxist driven VP & the entire Obiden cabinet. Both the House & Senate chambers need a complete purging as well, 100% on the Democrat side & about 75% on the Republican side. Now onto the DOJ, both the FBI & the CIA need a complete purging from the directors all the way down through the management structure, which btw is completely corrupted with Deep State sycophant’s…
I’m not done yet: Every Blue State’s corrupt judges, both parties in both the upper & lower courts need to be REMOVED effective immediately. Now onto the SCOTUS, they all need to go as in yesterday…
Back to the Blue States again, all local district attorneys offices need to be SHUTDOWN in all those cities that released the arrested BLM/ANTIFA thugs through bail only to return to doing what got them arrested in the first place, effective immediately…
We are losing our country, time to get it back by arresting each & every one of these SOB’s & throwing the key away. God Bless America…

Hopefully if we hang on until the midterms, we can fumigate the House and the Senate and purge this country of the traitorous Muslims like Tlaib and Omar and the useless scum like Piglosi, Schumer, Schiff et al.

Tlaib, Omar, Pelosi and the like are elected in their districts. Their residents want them to represent them. The rest of us have nothing to say about it. Pelosi’s constituents will NEVER vote her out of office as long as she’s still living and wants to run for the job. Our only hope is to be able to re-take the majority and knock her off her perch as Speaker. And that only works in our favor if we get a Republican Speaker who actually works for our interests. If we get another RINO like Paul Ryan, who undermined and thwarted the Trump agenda his first two years, we’ll still be in the same boat we’re in now.
We need to elect as many conservative Republicans in as many districts as we possibly can in 2022 (and 24). If they pass H R 1 and S 1, we’re toast. Only a few token, RINO Republicans will ever be able to win a national election again just as they have been doing in states like Calif, Wash and Ore for years. H R 1 and S 1 are modeled after the laws that have been in effect in those states for years with even more nefarious features added on top.

I agree, but short of a revolution how would you do that? If we don’t get a grass roots movement going for the 2022 elections, it will be too late. It will take a lot of work but conservatives can do it. And, pray hard!

He and his cohorts are out to destroy everything good about our Country and try to reconstruct history is ludicrous, to say the least. We need to repent of ALL of our sins in our Country and God will give us revival and heal our land. I’m 90 yrs. young and appalled at the behavior of all of these anti American people. They are children of the devil who roams around seeking to kill and destroy everything for which our brave men and women fought.

I am furious! Of all weeks (Memorial Day week) to degrade our country, our heroes, etc., Biden has done it again. How much are we going to stand for? This man needs to be stopped. The Democrats need to be stopped. None of them are working for the good of this country or its people. They are tearing down this nation piece by piece. Biden should be impeached for his traitorous actions against this great nation. I read the reviews to date and they are spot on! I agree.

Any thing and every thing Trump is being cancelled, the hatred has no boundaries, and even if things worked for the American people, and best for the country, China Biden is going to cancel or dismantle it .. it is the way communist manifesto tears down history and rebuilds it with a lie. CRT is really about the communist brain washing the youngest to become the imperial fallowers of the masses by a selected few ! LOOKS LIKE WE ARE PRETTY MUCH FALLOWNING THE PLAY BOOK OF MARXIST, AND ONE WORLD ORDER , THE SAME AMBITIONS HITLER HAD AND MAO HAD, MANY OTHERS WHOM GAINED POWER WITH THE BLOOD OF ITS PEOPLE.

GIVE US THE GARDEN! I personally despise Joe Biden and his laughing hyena Kamala Harris! They, the Democrats, the socialists, and the communists, in our great USA are destroying our nation and it’s history…and I don’t like it. I don’t know what the answer is, but I know I believe in God and they’ll never take that away from me, and I have guns and they’ll never take them away from me, and I still have my freedom and they better not try to take that away from me! The biggest mistake is trying to destroy our constitution that God gave our forefathers… BIG PROBLEM! Our true father will return one day and all of these idiots are going to pay for their mistake and they’re evil doings!!!

Not with A G Merrick Garland and his (in)Justice Dept. in charge. He has already stated that Trump, his family and all 80 million of his supporters are the greatest threat to our nation in the history of the country. He has neither the time, the personnel nor the money to pursue ANY other ‘crime’.

Actually, he can’t see past his masters, Obama and the others who are directing every action he takes and almost every word he utters (when they can get him to stick to their script). I don’t think he even has enough awareness of what is going on to be capable of resenting Trump. He rambles on about things he’s able to pull up from the recesses of his memory but he doesn’t come up with any new, original commentary that isn’t written for him by others to read off the teleprompter. And they just keep coming up with the same old tired rhetoric and platitudes they think he will be familiar enough with to be able to get through without messing it up too badly.

Joe Biden is just a small tool in the Democrat/Liberal/Progressive/Communist Party. They are all so consumed by their hatred of a man (and his supporters), who are outspoken in their criticism of them and their plans, that they are unable to do anything that is NOT motivated by that HATRED.
Where does Hatred come from? From the Devil himself, whose plans are all about the pretension of being good, like God. He is a poor substitute, the Father of Lies, and has NO GOOD IN MIND for mankind, and especially this Nation. This progression of events has been prophesied for millenia in the Bible, and we are seeing it unfold, including diverse catastrophes around the world. We who are believers, who see the TRUTH of what is happening, must alert others and be the Salt and Light that God has call3ed us to be, in order that as many as will, can be saved.
