6 June 1944.
As traditional America is under daily siege by the left, transforming most political, economic and social institutions, conservatives can sit back or face the challenges like our brave ancestral soldiers did on D-Day. Today, take five minutes to listen to the famous D-Day message given by Supreme Allied Commander, General Dwight Eisenhower as it may strengthen our resolve.
“Your task will not be an easy one. Your enemy is will trained, well equipped and battle-hardened. He will fight savagely”. Are we talking about Big Tech censors, media personalities, leftist organizers or the Nazis?

Historical Background from the Department of Defense:
This order was issued by Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower to encourage Allied soldiers taking part in the D-day invasion of June 6, 1944. Almost immediately after France fell to the Nazis in 1940, the Allies planned a cross-Channel assault on the German occupying forces, ultimately code-named Operation Overlord. By May 1944, 2,876,000 Allied troops were amassed in southern England. The largest armada in history, made up of more than 4,000 American, British, and Canadian ships, lay in wait, and more that 1,200 planes stood ready. Against a tense backdrop of uncertain weather forecasts, disagreements in strategy, and related timing dilemmas, Eisenhower decided before dawn on June 5 to proceed with Overlord. Later that same afternoon, he scribbled a note intended for release, accepting responsibility for the decision to launch the invasion and full blame should the effort to create a beachhead on the Normandy coast fail. Much more polished is his printed Order of the Day for June 6, 1944, which Eisenhower began drafting in February. The order was distributed to the 175,000-member expeditionary force on the eve of the invasion. dod.defense.gov
Excerpts with modern substitutions in parenthesis:
“You are about to embark upon the Great Crusade, toward which we have striven these many months. The eyes of the world are upon you. The hope and prayers of liberty-loving people everywhere march with you. In company with our brave Allies and brothers-in-arms on other Fronts, you will bring about the destruction of the
German (leftist) war machine, the elimination of Nazi (radical liberal) tyranny over the oppressed peoples of Europe (America), and security for ourselves in a free world.“
“Good luck! And let us beseech the blessing of Almighty God upon this great and noble undertaking“. (Preserving the traditional American Republic and its plethora of liberties is also a noble cause)
