The assault by the left towards EVERYTHING good about our country is full speed ahead. Nothing is off-limits to the “cancel culture”.
Supporting police? Racist.
Opposing defunding of police? Racist.
Supporter of Trump? Racist.
Praising tangible achievements of Trump? Racist.
Founding fathers? Racist.
History of America? Racist.
Supporter of conservatism? Racist.
Defender of the U.S. Constitution? Racist.
Our very existence as a nation is somehow seen as a negative. The irony is that the freedom guaranteed by the existence of our Republic allows the leftists to attack it as evil and promote socialist ideals.
Now, the flag of the United States of America is being called (you guessed it) “racist”.
Mara Gay, a member of the NY Times editorial board, stated on MSNBC’s Morning Joe that the mere sight of pick-up trucks with a “bunch of American flags” was a disturbing sight.
There are calls to remove a mural on a wall in because “it represents those tenets of power that are historically racist.” The mural merely illustrates police officers in uniform, surrounded by a U.S. flag, mourning three fellow fallen officers.
NEWS FLASH: The flag of the United States of America does not represent racism, slavery or any other evil. It represents an imperfect nation that is continuously trying to right its own wrongs. It represents a brave nation that has lost hundreds of thousands of sons and daughters fighting to defeat slavery. It represents a morally guided nation that gained the freedom of all slaves, afterwards moving on to fight the oppression of the descendants of those very same freed slaves by southern Democrats.
Here is a free lesson about the symbolism of the U.S. flag for those who were failed by our public school system:
RED symbolizes strength and valor.
WHITE symbolizes purity and innocence.
BLUE symbolizes vigilance, perseverance, and justice.
The STRIPES not only represent the original 13 colonies but are also “symbolic of the rays of light emanating from the sun.”
The STARS not only represent every state in the Union, but also “the heavens and the divine goal to which man has aspired from time immemorial.”
I understand that everyone tends to look out for their interests, but that is what is dividing our nation. The race-baiters are truly preventing any racial harmony. The American flag, and what it represents, should be the one thing that unites ALL Americans.
Strangely enough, the two biggest threats to the success and safety of black Americans somehow are never given any scrutiny or responsibility from the leftist media:
-The policies of Democrats have kept black Americans and other minorities economically disadvantaged for nearly a century. The chains of slavery have been removed, but the descendants of the freed are now on the Democratic plantation of depending on government handouts, in exchange for votes keeping their very “masters” in power!
-Black Americans are responsible for 89% of the murders of Black Americans.
Perhaps instead of pointing fingers at our history, our flag, and our country, it is time for some of the loudest criers of “racism” and “white supremacy” to look in the mirror?
