Star Parker: Trump’s Incredible State of the Union Address

Last night’s State of the Union Address was incredible! President Trump spoke the truth, unified our nation around our common values, and gave us something that we haven’t seen in years: hope for individual liberty. Polls are showing Americans across the board agreed with his speech!

But I know you noticed leftists in Congress refused to stand or applaud when the President mentioned facts about family, God, and peculiarly the black unemployment rate:

“And something I’m very proud of, African-American unemployment stands at the lowest rate ever recorded.” — President Donald Trump

In my weekly syndicated column, I wrote how President Trump had every reason to correctly take responsibility for the lowest unemployment rate among African Americans IN RECORDED HISTORY!

But you noticed the reaction to this truth from the members of the Black Caucus: silence, no applause, and unlike conservatives, they did not rise from their seats:

Friend, what you see in this photo is fear.

— It’s fear that the Americans they claim to represent will stop listening to their Marxist lies.
— It’s fear that Americans will discover that the values that created our nation is a guarantee for individual freedom, no matter the color of your skin.
— It’s fear that Americans who’ve bought the leftist lies for more than 50 years will discover we are individuals who believe in common American values, not groups of people who have different multi-cultural values.

When Americans open up their minds to our ideas, the people who sat in those seats while the President spoke about black unemployment will be forced to rise so someone else can take their seat.

I leave you with this warning from MSNBC personality Joy Reid. She hated Trump’s speech so much because she hates the values that you and I share so much. The values she and Marxists like her detest are the same values that make sure all Americans have the opportunity to rise and make America great again!

  3. “Church … Family … Police … Military … The National Anthem … tropes of 1950s-era nationalism” She left out “The Flag,” but ALL true Americans shouted “AMEN!!” Those who PRAY for America and her leaders, pray also that these “tropes” are NOT bygone….

    • Amen! It certainly says something about Ms. Reid that she wishes they were “bygone.” Personally, I’d call those values “timeless.”
