“The Things We Fought for, it’s all gone down the drain”

Roughly two years ago, a local Tampa news outlet (Fox 13) interviewed WWII veteran Carl Dekle for his 100th birthday. Mr. Dekle served in the US Marine Corps during WWII and received a Silver Star for his honorable service in combat.

During this video interview, Dekle started talking about the current state of affairs of America and how much the country has changed after WWII. In fact, he started tearing up while ruminating on the decline of American society over the last 70+ years.

Here is an important excerpt from Dekle’s interview:

“Nowadays, I am so upset that the things we [WW2 soldiers] did and the things we fought for and the boys that died for it, it’s all going down the drain. Our country’s going to hell in a handbasket. We haven’t gotten the country we had when I was raised in. Not at all. Nobody will have the fun I had. Nobody will have the opportunity that I had. But, they said it’s not the same. That’s not what our boys, that’s not what they died for …”

Dekle’s interview went viral on social media for his brutal assessment of the country’s poor state. In fact, the interview has garnered millions of views on YouTube and Twitter/X–with the original YouTube video possessing over 3 million views.

Here is the 3 minute interview of Deckle below:

Sadly, Mr. Dekle passed away two months after the interview for his 100th birthday. However, his memory still lives on through his service to our country and through this impactful interview.

For Memorial Day, the “America First” movement must honor the ultimate sacrifice of the servicemen who died for this nation. We must honor the lives and values of these brave patriots by reversing the continued decline of America. Our forefathers did not die for mass immigration, secularism, and sexual degeneracy. The men who died for this country would not recognize the country they sacrificed for, and we owe it to them and future generations by reclaiming the glory of our once-great nation.

May God bless all of the patriots from past, present, and future who have sacrificed their lives for the United States of America.
