Remember when President Donald Trump gave a patriotic speech on the Fourth of July followed by a great fireworks celebration?
Those days are long gone, as Joe Biden has just cancelled that very same patriotic celebration this year.
South Dakota governor Kristi Noem is speaking out against Biden and his administration.
She says that Biden and the radical left are refusing to celebrate America.
Noem explained on Twitter:
“For the radical Left, it’s more than just cancelling fireworks. They don’t want to celebrate America.”
Here's Fox News with the latest from Noem:
South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem vowed on "Fox & Friends" Thursday to appeal a court ruling that upheld the Biden administration’s decision to cancel a Fourth of July fireworks show at Mount Rushmore.
"The decision was really arbitrary, that's why we’ll be appealing this decision, and the fight isn't over," Noem said. "This is part of the radical left's agenda. They don't want to celebrate America or our freedoms. They're pushing critical race theory. They're pushing the 1619 Project. And this is just another one of those battles to erase our true, honest and patriotic history in this country."
Fireworks were reintroduced at the federal landmark for the first time since 2009 last year under Donald Trump, but the National Park Service (NPS) denied Noem’s permit request earlier this year, citing health reasons relating to coronavirus, wildfire risks, environmental concerns, and ongoing construction at the national monument, which is not set to be concluded by the Fourth of July.
Noem filed a suit challenging the NPS decision, with an appeals court ruling Wednesday that the state did not meet the requirements for a ruling in their favor.
Governor Noem Slams Biden For Denying Mt Rushmore Celebration
Our friends at Breitbart with more on governor Noem's response:
“You know, the decision was really arbitrary,” she said. “That’s why we’ll be appealing this decision, and the fight isn’t over. There wasn’t specific reasons that had credibility, and we call this an unlawful act to not make sure that we can conduct our celebration on July 3 at Mount Rushmore like we did last year.
“This is part of the radical left’s agenda,” Noem continued. “They don’t want to celebrate America or freedoms. They’re pushing critical race theory. They’re pushing the 1619 Project. And this is just another one of those battles to erase our trust, honest, and patriotic history in this country.”
