Republicans have been warning everyone for years that leftists want to eliminate the red, white and blue. The label they want to stamp on our flag is one of oppression and racism.
As we speak, our nation is discussing this very issue.
Just look at San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s refusal to get his lazy butt up off the bench during the National Anthem because he says “I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color,” To me, this is bigger than football and it would be selfish on my part to look the other way. There are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder.”
To some delicate liberal snowflakes, the Stars and Stripes have already become offensive. An offensive “trigger” that bothers the easily offended liberal safe spaces. So…it must be banned.
This isn’t a crazy “end of the world” theory. Look around, it’s already happening.
A high school in South Carolina is going up into controversial flames. The principle responded to the students about a highly contentious topic, (A.K.A our countries proud symbol of freedom) he said that the American flag would be banned at football games in order to keep the peace.
According to CBS Sports, Lou Lavely, the principal of Travelers Rest High School, is being criticized by locals and students after one of them posted a Facebook status indicating that he had been denied entry into a football game on Friday because he had been carrying the Stars and Stripes.
The game on Friday was being played against the team from Berea, a nearby school with a large Hispanic population.
‘Lou Lavely, Travelers Rest High School Principal, continues to power trip and strip young Americans the right to proudly boast this Nation’s flag,’ Hunter Ballew, a Travelers Rest High School alum, posted on his Facebook page on Saturday.
‘Last night I picked my brother up from the TRHS Football game and he told me that Lavely had denied entry to a couple of young men with Americans flag.’
Ballew claimed that he has had previous disagreements with Lavely over the issue of displaying the flag, including an incident immediately after the death of Osama bin Laden.
‘As I took the flag and attempted to enter myself [a police officer]stated, ‘he has the authority to tell anyone they can’t bring it on the property.’
An administrator walked up behind me and said “No American flags,” and I asked why and they said “because it could offend someone”,’ Waynick said.
‘When they told me I had to put it away, I respected their authority and I took my flag and put it up.’
Waynick said she had displayed the flag on numerous occasions in the past at football games without incident.
She said she was not aware that the flags were used to taunt Berea students.
‘I did not bring my flag for taunting or for disrespect to anyone at Berea or anyone that was there,’ Waynick said.
On Monday, the principal defended his decision to ban the flag, saying that it had been used in the past by Travelers Rest students to ‘taunt’ their counterparts from Berea.
What happened to the pride we once had for the flag? Remember the day after the largest terrorist attack this country has ever seen, September 12th? The American flag was sold out of stores EVERYWHERE! Our nation was covered in red, white and blue, we were all united to protect our country.
Unfortunately, since the “historic” election of president Obama, our first half black president, the citizens in the United States of America are ashamed of their symbol of liberty and freedom.
Thanks a lot, Obama…asshole.
