Does it irk you when they say the flying of the American flag is …’Unpatriotic’?

They scream, yell and violently protest the flying of the American flag because they want you to believe that it’s “unpatriotic,” “offensive” and “racist.”

These are the same people that open their mouths and say, “that is not who we are,” and you know they are lying.

“That is not who we are,” is an empty phrase by demagogues of the political left.

Beyond the theatrics and hyperbole of their false morality, in effect that is exactly who they are…” unpatriotic,” “offensive,” and “racists.”

Having overplayed their use of the word “racist,” calling everything they disagree with racist; these people are incapable of accepting any criticism and they refuse to understand that in fact they are racists.

Not a day goes by when the permanent pessimists don’t whine about our American moral fiber represented in our flag.

It’s an assault on the American flag, the American people and anyone that truly loves the USA.

How in the world has this become the case?

It wasn’t that long ago that the response to 911, that is flying the American flag was patriotism 101, alive and well. Everywhere “we will never forget” became a household sentiment.

And certainly, the flying of the American flag has come a long way since May 7, 1945…

the day Nazi Germany surrendered to the allies.

Interestingly, it was the same day that Joseph Fennimore, a young, 22-year-old American soldier and his Army brothers posed for a photograph with their handmade American flag.

You see when Joseph arrived at his command post in Wolfratshausen, Germany, he saw that there were no American flags anywhere.

So, he took parts and pieces of the only material available to him, a Nazi uniform and other material, sewed them together and made himself an American flag.

On this day, therefore, it was quite fitting for Joseph and his Army brothers to pose with the American flag.

American forces came not to conquer, but to bring freedom to that part of the world.

The American flag was therefore the symbol of that Freedom and the shared cultural values of our diverse population.

Fast forward to the 21st century…

if you listen to the media narrative and reports on the protests and assaults happening on some university campuses, the streets of our cities and even what is coming out of the mouths of some politicians and “athletes,” you’ll hear the garbage on how they want you to see the American flag.  An earlier article further discussed this subject, you can access that article here.

They want you to believe, the American flag is “exclusionary,” and symbol of “slavery.” Any negative label to disparage the American flag, change our standing in the world and destroy the U.S.A. from within…

That’s not caring about the country or its people, they have no interest in making America great.

It’s about their own self-interest and political agendas.

So, they remove our flag, take it down, step on it, disparage it with their mouths and their behavior, to show their outrage, their disapproval.

Really, it’s a condemnation of themselves and their own failures.

The worst part of it all, they are outraged when you don’t buy their narrative.

They want to force you to see it their way and no other way at all… a sort of socialism in action.  Somewhere it has been said that “socialism” is just a step to “communism.”

And they’ll physically attack you to intimidate and deter you from challenging them.

The unmitigated hypocrisy!!!

Just this month alone, “protesters” protesting the housing of illegal immigrants by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (I.C.E.), violently removed the American flag from the Aurora ICE Detention Facility, Colorado.

But that is not all, they had the unmitigated gall to replace it with the Mexican flag.

You see they only have a problem with the American flag because the freedom it represents cuts into their power grab.

Their ultimate objective is to replace the USA bit by bit with various enclaves throughout the land so that in the end it’s no longer America, but a one-world order.

So why come here if you are not interested in accepting and respecting our nation?

Why live here if you are miserable and hate this country?

And that was exactly President Trump’s point when he suggested:

“Why don’t they go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came…Then come back and show us how it is done.”

That is the truth…not racism!

It should go without saying…

You don’t need to be a Patriot, but a civilized person living in this country should at a minimum respect our American flag…

Otherwise, whether you’re a U.S. citizen or a politician stop complaining about how terrible this country is and stop accusing people of being racists just because they don’t proscribe to your anti-American views.

By all means, feel free to go where you will be happy, in the culture and politics of your choice.

Because in America, Americans of diverse backgrounds and colors, should have a right to be Americans and expect others to respect our culture.

That is NOT racism…regardless of what the media and the politicians say!

Is that too much to ask?

Should we even ask?

The media and the politicians both Dems and rinos behave as if it is ok for them to spout vitriol and left-wing rhetoric 24 hrs. a day

These same politicians stand idly by and do nothing when the USA and the symbol of our nation, the American flag are trashed.

They stand idly by, in utter silence. Occasionally, they spout twisted warped rhetorical claims that, it’s “freedom of speech”; the very freedom of speech denied Americans.

It’s time to wake up… disrespecting the American flag should never be protected under freedom of speech and should never be politically expedient…

End of the Summer Sale Disparaging the American flag is anti-American.

Much the same way that antisemitism and anti-Christianity should never under any conditions be tolerated.

It was so refreshing and encouraging when Marcus Lemonis, chairman and CEO of Camping World said, “the flag isn’t coming down…” his response to a North Carolina city’s lawsuit against his business for allegedly violating a city ordinance that limits the size of the American flag he can fly on his business premises.

Imagine that, what possible public interest can the city have in limiting the size of an American flag that a business can have on its property? And then they penalize you for the alleged violation? Aahh, you see where that is going?

But some American flag removals get no attention.

Quietly removing the American flag is a dangerous practice because they are working not only to change the demographics of our Republic, but ultimately to destroy the very essence of our shared cultural values that have existed since inception of our nation.

The U.S. has always been a diverse nation, however segregated it may have been…

But we’ve now had a black U.S. President, interracial marriages are everywhere and the country has largely desegregated.

Interestingly, there seems to be an effort to revert back to the segregation of the races, though they don’t call it as such, on university campuses they call it the “No Whites day,” “white people free day,” “no white people on campus demand,” where and when white students are excluded and/or prohibited from entering certain areas of their university’s campus which have been designated as “safe spaces,” for certain students of “color.”

Another example yet, Mexicans celebrate Mexico’s Independence Day and in certain areas of the country there are only Mexican flags everywhere. The Poles do the same thing, they fly only their Polish flags everywhere and celebrate Poland’s Independence Day.

Very often during these times, American high school students are not permitted to wear T-shirts bearing the American flag at school, out of respect to the students who are otherwise celebrating their foreign flag and their country’s Independence Day.

Yet, there are those who continuously cry “racism,” because they are “of color,” while uttering outrageous racists condemnations of the “white male.”

Except for a few Veteran’s groups and organizations, 4th of July parades are not big huge events as these other celebrations often are…no 4th
of July celebrations are relegated to just a long three-day weekend for shopping, not a big birthday celebration of the U.S.A.

It’s dangerous because many don’t even realize nor understand what is happening in our country…

In a slightly different scenario, the other day, a gasoline station was now under new ownership.

And just like that the beautiful bold Star and Stripes that for years and throughout spring, summer, fall and winter seemed to be the friendly symbol of stability reminding us that this was still America, our home, was suddenly gone.  Just like that, disappeared overnight.

It’s been happening, much too often… It’s become so predictable that when a gasoline station changes “ownership,” you can expect the American flag will disappear.

For years, there was a beautiful giant size American flag, boldly waiving hello or good bye to everyone who would care, as a reminder that this is America the land of the free.

I went in, paid for the gas and grabbed a Sprite. The man behind the counter literally threw my change on the counter… without even glancing at me or a polite thank you.

Is politeness or civility to a customer too much to ask?

The next time I stopped by that gasoline station, I asked the individual behind the counter, about the flag…he was quick to respond, “no, no that’s against my religion, we don’t honor any flags.”

It was the “we don’t honor any flags,” that amused me the most, particularly since all I asked was “what happened to the big beautiful American flag that was flying there before?”

You can’t even ask a legitimate simple question, because it offends them and just like that they cry “racism.”

If you love the USA, the haters of everything American, label you a racist and whatever kind of ill-conceived names. But if and when you show them their own faults, they are outraged that you had the temerity to expose their hypocrisy to their face.

So, here is the conclusion of the whole matter.

Don’t let them tell you, it’s racist to fly the American flag.

You can and you should fly the American flag every chance you get, not just on the 4th of July or Memorial Day, that is not racist..

Don’t let them shut you up.

Exercise your free speech rights.  Every chance you get speak up, write articles, write comments and you can start by leaving a comment here in response to this article.

Don’t let them tell you that it’s a “white men’s issue,” a “white supremacists’ issue,” or that it’s a “people of color issue.”

Don’t let them drag you into their “everything is racism” arguments.

We are Americans, be thankful, be grateful, see beyond the color of the skin, don’t let them manipulate you because they are “people of color” or because “they are white.”

It’s ok to be American, be grateful to be American and that you live here.

Be thankful and grateful that we have freedom to worship God freely.

To close, a 911 quote from the pilot of Flight 93, Jason Dahl’s wife, Sandy Dahl,

“If we learn nothing else from this tragedy, we learn that life is short and there is no time for hate.”

  1. Hello; Before I say anything I must make my understanding clear, a country’s flag represents the people of that country, because it is the citizens that comprise the country.

     Therefore anyone who will disregard the Flag disregards himself. I am not an American, I have no wish to be involved in American Politics.

     Do you think the people who love to talk about the racest have a full understanding of the term? Or, would you say they are using a Curse Word?

    • Thanks for your comment, though I question why you have commented on this article that you perceive to be “political” while simultaneously stating that you have “no wish to be involved in American politics.”

  2. Hello Christie, I must say that this article is very helpful and informative. I still don’t understand those people who are molested when they see wearing a USA flag or even a t-shirt with America flag. I live in the USA and I am proud of it, I think that no one has the right to tell me what should I do and what not. I hope that this article will motivate people to not give up or fear of people who don’t support America.

    • Hello Daniel,

      Regarding your statement that you “don’t understand those people who are molested when they see wearing a USA flag or even a t-shirt with American flag”; there are three different kinds of people that live in the USA.

      (1) Those who live and love the USA

      These are the ones that believe in the US Constitution, the Bill of Rights, Freedoms!

      When they fly the American flag or wear clothing bearing the image of the American flag, they are asserting their belief in Freedom of Speech, Freedom of Religion, Freedom to Associate with whomever or whatever they want…this includes freedom to think for themselves and wear whatever they want to wear.  They respect the American flag, American culture, pledge their allegiance to the U.S.A. and stand for the national anthem.

      (2) Those who live in, but hate the USA:

      Those who live in the USA, but are very much anti-American.  They hate the U.S. flag, they hate President Trump…they hate all the Freedoms derived from the U.S. Constitution, the Bill of Rights.  All while they rely on these very same freedoms, to spew hatred, intimidate, cause violence and are otherwise intolerable.  Within this category are those that permanently whine about the ills of the nation, ever seeing what is wrong with the country, never appreciating anything good.   

      Within this group are those who claim to love the U.S.A., but everything they do and believe in is Anti-American. 

      (3) Those who live in, but otherwise don’t care what happens in the USA:

      These are those who don’t care what happens to the Republic or the American people, as long as they are healthy, wealthy and fine.  They will protest to get whatever they want or need, they just want to work to become rich.  These together with those in the second category will fleece the country if they have to, they neither learn the language nor assimilate.  These are the ones who have fled their countries for whatever reason, all while bringing their foreign country with them.  These are the ones who say that flying the American flag is against their religion.  Yet, they have no problem flying the flag of their country or their cause when it behooves them.

      This category of people are simply living here, but are otherwise completely detached from the Republic.

      Thank you for your comment.

  3. Awesome write-up,drastic steps should be taken through court, so it will finally end such behavior,because the act does not show respect for USA,all the citizens and those who defend the State,You don’t have to love the American flag, again because of the freedoms we have here in the U.S.A., but that freedom does not give anyone the right or excuse to burn/desecrate or disparage the American flag, kudos for the effort to write this,Thank you.

  4. I think those who fly the American flag do so with patriotic intentions and no, it’s not racist to fly the flag, especially if one is flying the flag on their own property. However, I can understand why those in other parts of the world think the flag is offensive, with military in over 130 countries and something I just read from the Ron Paul Liberty Report today is that US Troops have been responsible for killing more Afghan civilians than the Taliban, which reminds me of the Gallagher case and Duncan Hunter’s remarks about killing Iraqi civilians for fun. 

    That said, I think the flag is tainted, but at the same time, most of those who fly the flag don’t know about what really goes on behind closed doors, so to call someone racist for flying the flag is just childish, especially when they have zero debate in the matter. It doesn’t irk me, because we have a right to our own opinion, as outlined in the First Amendment of the Constitution.

    Should protest of the American flag be covered under the First? I will say that if one sees the flag as a government symbol, and also a symbol of the blood and violence it has become in so many parts of the world, then I would agree with what Jefferson once outlined in the Declaration of Independence: That it’s the people’s job to overthrow and instill a new government, and definitely a new government symbol. Therefore, I would say the First should cover it, but at the same time, if people are protesting it due to thinking it’s racism, then I think they just need to be better informed, because again, I know many who proudly fly the flag and don’t have a single ounce of racism in their blood. 

    But then again, I’m one who sees the Confederate flag as a historical symbol, and not racist as so many made it out to be a few years back.

    What I’m getting to is that beauty lies in the hands of the individual and as individuals, we’re free to think whatever we want about the flag. I see it as a symbol of freedom for many Americans, but I also see it as a symbol of violence and oppression which dates back to the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, where Japan was ready to surrender and were beaten but we decided to kill hundreds of thousands of civilians anyway. 

    I’m neither conservative nor liberal, but a Libertarian who is a disciple of the great Ron Paul, and much fo what I’ve outlined here mimics what you’ll see from Paul’s point of view. 

    • Hi Todd: 

            (1) I think we can both agree that flying the American flag is patriotic and not racist.

        (2) Regarding your comments on the “Ron Paul Liberty Report” and the headline “More Afghan civilians killed  

                  by US than by Taliban!”  

      First, it was just a headline. 

      Headlines are purposely designed to grab a reader’s attention…they neither prove nor disprove facts.

      This means that a headline cannot be relied upon for the “truth” of the matter being asserted. 

      Second, Ron Paul was just reporting or repeating what 3rd parties were saying, an UN Report and AntiWar.com.

      Ron Paul himself was questioning the reports.  And he never said nor asserted that the reports were evidence that “US Troops have been responsible for killing more Afghan civilians than the Taliban.” That is clearly not the case. 

      Regarding the Gallagher case, as you probably know Chief Gallagher was acquitted of all charges on July 2, 2019, after a jury trial. Therefore, he is entitled to the presumption of innocence both prior to trial and even more so now that he has been acquitted.  Particularly, however, his case had nothing to do with “killing Iraqi civilians for fun.”  In fact, the casualty that he was charged with killing was not a civilian, he was an Isis fighter.

        About Former Marine and now Rep. Duncan Hunter’s remarks, that his unit had “killed probably hundreds of civilians…in Iraq” it was said in response to a question in an interview about his support for Navy Seal Special Operations Chief Eddie Gallagher.  (Source:  USATODAY, June 3, 2019). There is no evidence and I found none whatsoever that Rep. Duncan Hunter ever said or even hinted “killing Iraqi civilians for fun.”

      On the issue of civilian casualties in war zones, the Department of Defense has very clearly explained that “civilian casualties are a ‘tragic and unavoidable part of war,’ but ‘no force in history has been more committed to limiting harm to civilians than the U.S. military.”’

      (3) As to the remainder of your comment and your points regarding the “flag” being “tainted”; “what Jefferson once outlined in the Declaration of Independence”; and your references to the “bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki”; I don’t necessarily agree with your characterizations and statements.  But you are entitled to your own opinion as I am entitled to mine.  Therefore, any proper response would probably exhaust the parameters of space allowed in this comment box or I may just decide to make it the subject of a future post.

      Thank you for taking the time to read my July post and for your very interesting comments.

  5. Wow! This is such an interesting post that treats a very alarming issue and got me glued till I read to the end. Firstly, I wouldn’t say I didn’t know about all these deviant behaviors being displayed by some various parts of the states to which segregation and racism is peaking. However, the fact that anyone would tell another not to fly the flag is indeed anti America and such person should be detained. I really agree with you, one should be proud of the great flag of the Americans because it is our symbol of culture and unity. Great post
