LOOK CLOSELY AT THIS FLAG—AND TELL ME WHAT IT SHOWS

HISTORY, CIVICS, AND PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY PENSACOLA’S FIVE-FLAGS DISPLAYS

HISTORY, CIVICS, AND PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY PART 3

AMERICAN FLAGS

We expect our American troops to defend our current American Flag against all foreign enemies.

But if we don’t defend our historical American Flags against all domestic enemies, how can we be worthy of our American troops?

YOU’LL EITHER SIGN MY PETITIONS, OR YOU WON’T—YOU EITHER CARE ABOUT YOUR COUNTRY, OR YOU DON’T.

“RT@USUN: We are so proud of Affan and Alina, two Indian students in the U.S. #EnglishAccess program. They have been working hard after school growing their English skills and learning about the U.S. We can’t wait to see what they do to strengthen the bond between our countries!”

Disgusting, isn’t it?

Nimrata Randhawa Haley is not the U.S. Ambassador to India—she is the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations.

Yet this pandering, self-serving, sociopathic liar is living it up on some kind of self-promotional tour in India—and even brainwashing young, privileged Indians like these to come to the United States, infiltrate both the Democratic and Republican parties, and exploit us, the people of the United States, for all they can get out of us.

This pandering, self-serving, sociopathic liar is evil and disgusting—and you have an opportunity, right now, to get her out of your government.

I have spent hundreds of dollars of my disability money paying Change.org to promote this and my other Change.org petition—simply to get enough signatures on either one.

Ironically, this is the first month I have spent no money promoting my two online petitions—and it is the most desperately poor month I’ve ever experienced in my life.

Yet I’m not asking you for money.  I’m just asking you to care about your country again, as we Americans did in the 1980s, the 1970s, the 1960s, and every decade and century before—and as a handful of us still do.

You would be amazed how many people try their best to discourage me from caring about anything or anyone outside my own little life—because they don’t care about anything or anyone outside their own little lives.

You would be amazed how many people even criticize, shame, and ridicule me for caring about anything or anyone outside my own little life—yet are completely unwilling to do a goddamned thing to lighten this cross I choose to carry for my country and my world, even something as effortless as signing an online petition to remove a diabolical politician from office, or signing an online petition to return a historical flag to a historical flags display, a historical flag that has been censored by diabolical politicians without the consent of their constituents, to whom that flag rightfully belongs.

You’ll either sign my petitions, or you won’t—you either care about your country, or you don’t.

HOW IS THIS HAPPENING?

In the Twentieth Century, idealistic young people gathered in opposition to censorship.

In the Twenty-first Century, idealistic young people gather in support of censorship.

In the Twentieth Century, idealistic young people gathered in support of freedom of speech.

In the Twenty-first Century, idealistic young people gather in opposition to freedom of speech.

How is this happening?

“I know you’re a strong supporter of the Second Amendment–is there anything about this situation that makes you think, ‘Okay, should we rethink–is it time for some kind of change?'”
“ANY TIME THERE IS A TRAUMATIC SITUATION, PEOPLE WANT SOMETHING TO BLAME–THEY ALWAYS WANT SOMETHING TO GO AFTER…”

“THE HATE-FILLED MURDERER WHO MASSACRED OUR BROTHERS AND SISTERS IN CHARLESTON [SOUTH CAROLINA] HAS A SICK AND TWISTED VIEW OF [THE CONFEDERATE FLAG THAT FLIES ON THE STATEHOUSE GROUNDS IN COLUMBIA, SOUTH CAROLINA]”
“TODAY WE ARE HERE…TO SAY IT’S TIME TO MOVE THE FLAG…”

“I UNDERSTAND THE [FIRST CONFEDERATE] FLAGS ARE DOWN, BUT I WANT TO MAKE IT PERMANENT. I DON’T WANT ANY CHANCE OF THOSE FLAGS GOING BACK UP.”

WHAT EXACTLY DO YOU KIDS BELIEVE IN?

You have no respect for this flag, because you have no respect for law enforcement officers—dead or alive, Black or White.

 

You have no respect for these flags—in fact, you demand that politicians censor these flags—though you have no understanding of these flags at all.

 

You don’t know what this flag is—though you claim that Black lives matter to you.

 

You don’t know what this flag is either—or care to know what it is.

 

You don’t realize that if the Republican President of the United States orders an invasion of the State of California—just as the Republican President of the United States ordered an invasion of Southern states in 1861—this flag will be censored immediately, and anyone who tries to display it again will be killed.

 

You definitely approve of local politicians replacing the First Confederate Flag with this flag, in our historical flags displays—though it has been done without our consent, and is historically inaccurate.

 

You have no idea that the same politicians who censor all of the Confederate flags you dislike so much will eventually censor this flag you like so much.

 

What exactly do you kids believe in?

RIGHT-WING HYPOCRISY IS STILL HYPOCRISY—LEFT-WING HYPOCRISY IS STILL HYPOCRISY

When Christianity is misused, you do not blame Christianity—you blame those who misuse it.

Yet when Islam is misused, you do not blame those who misuse it—you blame Islam.

Right-wing hypocrisy is still hypocrisy.

When the Swastika is misused, you do not blame the Swastika—you blame those who misuse it.

Yet when the Confederate Battle Flag is misused, you do not blame those who misuse it—you blame the Confederate Battle Flag.

Left-wing hypocrisy is still hypocrisy.

When Christianity is misappropriated, you do not fault Christianity—you fault those who misappropriate it.

Yet when Islam is misappropriated, you do not fault those who misappropriate it—you fault Islam.

Right-wing hypocrisy is still hypocrisy.

When the Swastika is misappropriated, you do not fault the Swastika—you fault those who misappropriate it.

Yet when the Confederate Battle Flag is misappropriated, you do not fault those who misappropriate it—you fault the Confederate Battle Flag.
