On Sunday my church did a presentation of the colors in the lead up to honoring the veterans. A Marine ROTC color guard was led by a bagpiper playing Amazing Grace. They walked with that pride and distinction that Marines have and presented the colors. Then a great tenor singer led us in the National Anthem.
I guarantee nobody took a knee.
In fact, like me, many were choked up and felt a swelling pride in this country that all patriotic Americans feel when they see the symbol of our great country, and sing that wonderful song.
And the thought crossed my mind that on that same day there would be godless left wing America hating football players using their time in the spotlight to convey their hatred for our country, our veterans and everything the rest of us believe in.
It made me angry to think about these privileged wealthy multi millionaires who have led lives that only the top 1% of America ever sees feeling that much hatred for the country that made it all possible for them.
America is the least oppressive and least racist country in the world. This is the land that has created more wealth, more opportunity than any other country in the world. This country has fought wars and sacrificed millions of men in the cause of protecting freedom from tyranny. The fight for freedom has always been America's fight. We even fought a civil war with ourselves to free the slaves. 700,000 men died in that bloody conflict.
America is the best of the best, and has been since it's birth. We were born out of a war for freedom from tyranny.
But these godless left wing commies would have you believe America is some horrible place. They have invented a different America than the one you and I live in, and they have chosen the symbol of our country to pour out their godless satanic driven hatred on.
Well, they are wrong. They have fabricated this whole mess out of hatred for our President. These people are completely insane with hatred at this point.
When the Kenyan became president, I disagreed with virtually every policy he promoted. I disagreed with his political beliefs, his religious beliefs and pretty much everything he did or said.
But not for one second did I decide I hated America or our flag because he was the president. My love for America is why I fought him the way Americans have fought would be tyrants for 230 years. I voted, I gave money to candidates who opposed him. I went to TEA party rallies. I promoted my views every opportunity I had. Never once did I turn my back on this country for what turned out to be a pretty stupid decision. And one that many Americans regretted as expressed by the democrats losing over 1,200 elections the next eight years including the House, Senate and Presidency.
So when these wealthy privileged probably brain damaged people disrespect our flag, I am just incapable of feeling any empathy for them. None. And seeing that flag yesterday while we sang our National Anthem just drove that home.
And if a bunch of America hating football players want to hate the country that made them wealthy privileged multi millionaires, well I guess they just can. I won't see it because I haven't watched one minute of NFL football this year, and won't. Probably never again. Or they can go try to find some other country that won't "oppress" them. And will pay them millions of dollars to play a children's game on Sunday.
So God bless America, and that star spangled banner that waves over the land of the free and the home of the brave.
