On the first night of the Republican National Convention, the Trump campaign tried to drive home a message to the American people about what a Joe Biden victory would mean for the country.
But one speaker stole the show.
And a combat vet floored the TV audience when he stepped up to the mic and destroyed Democrats with this rude awakening.
Sean Parnell served more than a year in Afghanistan defending America’s freedom as a decorated combat veteran.
And this year he is the GOP nominee for Pennsylvania’s 17th Congressional District.
Republicans believe Parnell is a rising star and awarded him with a prime speaking slot at the convention.
Parnell explained that the lesson he learned on the battlefield was that what unites Americans around a love of country and patriotism makes them unbeatable when they band together.
The speech then segued into Parnell reaching out to disaffected Democrats fed up with the party’s sharp turn left by embracing socialism and cancel culture that looked down on the traditional values which formed the core of American life.
“Where Democrats once stood for hard working, law abiding Americans who displayed our flag with pride, this New Democrat party considered them uneducated racists, clinging to guns and Bibles. The Party of Harry Truman became the Party of hedge fund managers, Hollywood celebrities, tech moguls and academia — bloated with contempt for middle America,” Parnell began.
Parnell declared that the Republican Party was open to everyone that shared a belief in free speech, hard work, fair trade deals and defending traditional American values regardless of demographic characteristics or identity politics considerations.
The fake news media claimed in the face of all available evidence that the GOP’s opening night was “dark” and only catered to Trump’s base.
That was an outright lie.
Sean Parnell’s speech highlighted the strength of American unity and rolled out the welcome mat for any American to join the GOP if they shared the Republican Party’s love of country.
“I stand here tonight calling on all Americans to join us. It doesn’t matter what you look like, who you love, how you worship, your gender, or your job. If you are a traditional Democrat who has become disillusioned with how radical your Party has become, then stand with us. You are most welcome. America needs all her patriots to rush to her defense.”
“My fellow Americans, I promise you this: in our tent, you are free,” he said. “Free to speak the truth, choose your journey, define your life. You have the power to go as far as you aim, then aim higher and keep going because that is what Americans do.”
