America Then and Now


December 7, 1941, 7:53 a.m. local time the United States suffered an unprovoked attack by the Japanese – the target Pearl Harbor, Hawaii to destroy the US Navy fleet and the aircraft on Hickam Field to stop any interference from the US with Japan’s planned strategy to dominant the Pacific. 

Here is a little over seven-minute US Navy video that was filmed for the 70th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor.  How has the Navy and other branches of the armed forces changed in those twelve years?  How has America changed since the attack on Pearl Harbor?

Let me name a few ways:

  1. The standards for the military have been lowered in order to remove the distinction between male and female.  Thus, playing into the lie that there are no differences between the sexes.
  2. Open homosexuals and those who identify as the opposite sex can now serve in the military.  A perfect example is cadets in the incoming class at West Point MUST address their female lieutenant as “Yes, sir” because she identifies as male!   And if they don’t  . . . .
  3. Today’s United States would not bounce back the way the 1941 United States did after the attack on Pearl Harbor.  Yes, we made mistakes by sending Japanese-Americans to interment camps for fear that they may be part of a plan to stage an attack on US soil.  Today, the US government is allowing known terrorists to cross our southern border undeterred. 
  4. In 1941 Americans did not say the United States deserved to be attacked; unlike what some Americans said after September 11, 2001.
  5. After the attack on Pearl Harbor, Americans who held traditional family values were not compared to the Japanese who attacked Pearl Harbor.   Unlike after the 911 attacks, Americans who held those same values were likened to the terrorists flying the planes into the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and hijacking Flight 93. 
  6. In 1941 students were taught to love America, unlike today where they are taught revised history and taught America is a systemically racist nation that needs to be transformed.

Action Steps

These are just a few thoughts on this day as we think back 82 years ago to that attack.  News did not travel with the speed of light as it does today and some did not hear about the attack on Pearl Harbor until the next day when they heard President Franklin Roosevelt address Congress in asking for a declaration of war as he called December 7, 1941 a “Day that shall live in infamy”.  Those men and women who died that day and have died in defense of our country since, did not die for the “fundamental transformation” of America. 

Pray for America.
