It sounds like something the leader of a totalitarian regime would order: a loyalty day.

But, as FOX News reports, Donald Trump has made clear that May 1 will be Loyalty Day in the U.S.

“The United States stands as the world’s leader in upholding the ideals of freedom, equality, and justice. Together, and with these fundamental concepts enshrined in our Constitution, our Nation perseveres in the face of those who would seek to harm it,” the proclamation reads.

“We humbly thank our brave service members and veterans who have worn our Nation’s uniform from the American Revolution to the present day. Their unwavering loyalty and fidelity has made the world a safer, more free, and more just place. We are inspired by their pride in our country’s principles, their devotion to our freedom, and their solemn pledge to protect and defend our Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic.”

The proclamation goes on to say that in order to express our country’s loyalty to “individual liberties, to limited government, and to the inherent dignity of every human being,” May 1 will be known as ‘Loyalty Day.’

Students of history will note that May 1 also is International Workers’ Day and celebrated prominently in communist and totalitarian nations.
