Think for a moment: when has there been another country in the history of the world or anywhere on earth currently where it is considered offensive to fly the nation’s flag?
This is the United States of America. Regardless of how it may feel, we have not been invaded by a foreign army, power has not switched hands to that of another sovereign state, and we have not lost a war.
The flag of our nation has every reason to be flown proudly and highly over our sacred soil and anyone who is offended by this can pack up and move.
Meanwhile, anyone who threatens to burn someone’s house down because they fly Old Glory is nothing short of a monster and a tyrant and ought to be thrown in jail ASAP.
That flag protects the rights of all Americans to fly whatever flag they’d like to outside their home. What is next, threatening someone for displaying the LBGTQ Pride flag?
It is pure, unfiltered, inarguable fascism to inflict violence upon someone simply because they display Old Glory.
Can we make this any clearer?
Breitbart reports that some protesters in the anarchy-ravaged city of Portland, Oregon, have threatened to burn down a home that flew the American flag as the lawlessness spills over into residential neighborhoods.
This comes from local resident Terrance Moses, a veteran and operator of a nonprofit in Portland, who observed the anarchists marching in the streets of his neighborhood and heard the threats.
“It went from a peaceful march, calling out the names, to all of a sudden, bang, ‘How dare you fly the American flag?’” Moses said, the New York Times reported. “They said take it down. They wouldn’t leave. They said they’re going to come back and burn the house down.”
“We don’t go around terrorizing folks to try and force them to do something they don’t want to do,” he added. “I’m a veteran. I’m for these liberties.”
The Times reported that the couple who had the flag displayed outside their home said they were “fearful of retaliation from the roving protesters, who had found their phone number.”
Nonetheless, and to their credit, they’ve refused to take down the flag.
“I will not take my flag down,” the man said.
If you give terrorists an inch, they’ll take a mile. Well, it may seem like that ship has sailed in Portland, as city leadership has been letting them run amok.
The flame of freedom still burns in the hearts of residents like this brave couple. War has been declared on the American people. Literally. It’s time for the American people to rise up and join this couple to help kindle that flame. It is time to start doing something other than expressing outrage. It is time to stare these goon insurrectionists down. It’s time to stand up and take their city and country back.
