    The Biden administration ordered the U.S. Embassy in Kabul to destroy all American flags before they depart. An internal memo obtained by the Washington Post, titled “Emergency Destruction Services at the Garrison,” was directed to “All American Personnel.” The memo instructed staff to destroy classified documents and equipment as well as dispose of “American flags… which could be misused in propaganda efforts” using incinerators, disintegrators and “burn bins.”

    An ESPN sportswriter has declared on live TV that seeing the American flag being waved at the Tokyo Olympics symbolizes the "rise of white supremacy." Speaking during an appearance on CBS on Monday, Bill Rhoden said people waving Old Glory at the Games in Japan reminds him of the January 6 riots at the U.S. Capitol.
  • Woke America Should Heed Chinese, Cuban Protestors Honoring Old Glory

    Recent contrasting events issue a dire warning. We are in a battle between the woke culture that seeks to divide Americans and those who celebrate our nation as a beacon of light to the world. As Americans celebrated July Fourth, certain politicians and celebrities that subscribe to “wokeism” displayed hostility towards our nation and our flag. In contrast, Cuban protestors recently displayed the American flag in a show of honor as they marched against the tyranny of their communist government. If the woke movement fails to heed this important message, the future of our American republic may be on the...
  • What Foreign Dissidents Understand About the American Flag

    This week, thousands of Cuban dissidents marched against the repressive communist tyranny that has subjugated the Cuban people for three generations. They chanted "Libertad!" and called for the end of the regime. And they carried aloft a symbol of freedom: the American flag. This isn't a rarity. It's a common sight among protesters for freedom worldwide. Before Hong Kong was turned into yet another municipality of the Chinese communist tyranny, freedom-seeking dissidents marched by the tens of thousands, carrying the American flag. When Iranian protesters stand up against the mullahcracy subjecting their nation to theocratic despotism, they refuse to deface...

    Independence Day is supposed to be a day of national unity. President Joe Biden proclaimed: "The Fourth of July is a sacred day in our country -- a day of history, of hope, remembrance and resolve, of promise and possibilities." Liberal Biden voters in the media did not concur. These are the people who refuse to wear flag pins or say the Pledge of Allegiance at news events they cover. They love their own freedom, but they use it to be professionally unpatriotic. Oh, they would claim that people who love their country can be the most passionate critics, fighting...

    First it was the Confederate statues because they represented racist microaggressions. Then it was any statue of any slaveowner. Now, it is the flag of the United States. Anyone knowledgeable of how totalitarian aggression operates knew it would not stop at the statues. Anyone who has ever read George Orwell’s Animal Farm knew the objective was slow, incremental chips at the core of the symbolism of the United States. Yet, the left is adroit at propaganda and indoctrination, so there should be no surprise this is where we are presently. The recent rhetoric favoring a new flag for the country...

    As America approaches another birthday on the 4th of July, we find that there are many in our society that want to tear the flag down. This is obviously a small, vocal minority. But they certainly speak for many Americans today who hate America.Here are a few examples of the flag under attack:U.S. Olympics athlete Gwen Berry purposefully turned her back on the flag during the National Anthem at an Olympics Trial the other day. No respect for her country’s banner.Gary Bauer of American Values wrote in his End of Day Report (6/21/21): “In a recent opinion piece, singer Macy...

    Our flag still means unity today. It stands for the union of our now 50 states into one nation, and every American who is a part of it.Just in time for Flag Day, New York Times reporter Mara Gay dragged the American flag into the race conversation, calling it “disturbing” to see “dozens of American flags” and instead arguing we must “separate America from whiteness.” The New York Times simply claimed her comments were taken out of context. Gay’s attitude showcases an urgent need to revisit the meaning of the American flag in our national conversation. Flag Day provides the...

    “I was on Long Island this weekend visiting a really dear friend, and I was really disturbed. I saw, you know, dozens and dozens of pickup trucks with explicatives [sic] against Joe Biden on the back of them, Trump flags, and in some cases just dozens of American flags, which is also just disturbing… (New York Times Editorial Board member Mara Gay, June 8.) “To our American friend (New York Times reporter) Herbert Matthews with gratitude.

    Honestly Mara, this says much more about you than it does me: NYT, MSNBC’s Mara Gay: ‘Disturbing’ to see ‘dozens of American flags’ on trucks on Long IslandOk, so she’s on the editorial board of the New York Times, and this is America after all - she’s allowed her ignorant, incorrect opinions just like the next guy (unless you support President Trump).It turns out Mara is offended by Trump supporters, who she believes are all knuckle-dragging, flag waving white supremacists. “I was on Long Island this weekend visiting a really dear friend, and I was really disturbed.

    New York Times editorial board member Mara Gay has been defended by her bosses after saying she was 'disturbed' by the number of stars and stripes flags on display during a trip to Long Island. The paper's official PR Twitter account backed Gay on Tuesday night, tweeting: 'New York Times editorial board member Mara Gay's comments on MSNBC have been irresponsibly taken out of context.' 'Her argument was that Trump and many of his supporters have politicized the American flag. The attacks on her today are ill-informed and grounded in bad-faith.'

    It’s not very often you hear this kind of blanket honesty from a journalist about how even the simple image of an American flag triggers them. On Morning Joe Tuesday, frequent guest Mara Gay from the New York Times admitted she was shocked at seeing dozens of “disturbing” American flags over the D-Day anniversary weekend. But what was really disturbing, was Gay likening our country's flag to racist, white nationalism. Gay’s looney comments were spurred on by the panel talking about- what else? The need for a January 6 commission on the Capitol Hill riot.

    The Palestinian Authority (PA) government courted by President Joe Biden with hundreds of millions of U.S. taxpayer dollars released a music video last month encouraging Palestinians to step on the U.S. and Israeli flags. Palestinian Media Watch (PMW), a watchdog organization that monitors the Palestinian media, reported Tuesday: During the recent violent Arab riots in Jerusalem and mixed Jewish-Arab cities, and Hamas’ launching of thousands of rockets against Israel from the Gaza Strip, the Palestinian Authority’s Ministry of Culture released a song against “normalization” with Israel. Part of the music video shows different people marching in protest and stomping on...

    Authorities said a huge American flag and several smaller flags were stolen from a Southern California veterans cemetery over the Memorial Day weekend. Les’ Melnyk, a spokesperson for the Department of Veterans Affairs’ National Cemetery Administration, said the garrison flag at Los Angeles National Cemetery was reported stolen sometime late Sunday or early Monday. The cemetery’s gates were closed at the time, Melnyk said.

    Personally, I like the idea that a professional sports franchise owner, like Mark Cuban, will stop exploiting the Star Spangled Banner to sell his product. For decades, professional sports teams have used patriotism for profit. The owners and players wrapped themselves in the flag they now burn. Let us be honest, corporations - especially multinational corporations - do not do anything that does not benefit the corporation. This practice of playing the national anthem, parading the flag in front of the crowd, “honoring” our uniformed services personnel, flyovers - it was all done to evoke the emotions of the audience....

    Sportswear giant Under Armour is dumping its licensing contracts with the National Football League, according to Front Office Sports. The company axed its deal for NFL players to wear its products on the field, making the coming 2021 season the first in years that Under Armour logos will not appear on the field for years, according to a recent issue of the Front Office Sports email newsletter. Under Amour’s move comes on the heels of the company’s exit from several other high-profile sports leagues, as well. Under Armour asked to end its $85 million deal with the University of California...

    Lewis and Clark High School in Spokane, Washington, rejected a student’s yearbook picture because she posed with an American flag draped over her shoulders. A statement from the school claims the decision was not made against what the flag represents, but out of respect: “We respect our flag as much as any school in the area and were concerned that in the photo submitted it was being used as a prop in the photo and was not being afforded appropriate regard.” “The fact that I can’t have my senior picture in the yearbook because it contains the American flag in...

    A few weeks after we put up our secret Trump sign, I started to see more go up in my neighborhood. On one nearby street, five formerly bare houses in a row now sport American flags. While driving around my neighborhood early this fall, I suddenly realized I was seeing bare yards where in previous election years there have always been billboard-sized Republican signs. Once I started seeing ghosted Donald Trump signs, I couldnÂ’t unsee them. Judging by my neighborhood and those nearby in my Midwestern town, plenty of Democrats feel safe displaying their voting preferences, but Republicans do not....

    Among the threats of persecution and death we face for supporting President Trump are some that are frankly hilarious. It’s one thing for libs to try to leverage fear to intimidate their patriotic opponents; it’s another thing to try it when they think that Kevlar is a hip Indonesian spice you sprinkle over your kale, and that SIG Sauer is a happening non-binary Swedish stand-up comic who doesn’t tell jokes because laughter is racist. We recently had Chris Hayes opine that, as soon as they install a Grandpa Badfinger regime – and even before Kamala can exercise Botox Nan’s new...

    It might be time for patriotic Americans to discover a new favorite sport, professional hockey. Unlike other professional athletes, hockey players have refused to show disrespect toward the National Anthem. At exhibition games this week, all players with the New York Rangers, New York Islanders, Pittsburgh Penguins and Philadelphia Flyers stood for the National Anthem. Likewise, for Thursday night’s start of the season, all the players with the Dallas Stars and the Nashville Predators stood for the National Anthem. After the game, a few of the Dallas players displayed their clothing featuring the slogan, #WeSkateforEquality. The NHL is allowing players...
