Referees of the Virginia Union vs Virginia State game take a knee during the national anthem.
This goes along with my last post on Facebook on burning our flag.
Our First Amendment is being abused all over this country. People like this and the spoiled originator Colin Kaepernick, are using it to disrespect treasured artifacts and traditions. When a person takes a knee during the Pledge of Allegiance, they are basically saying through their actions that they do not, in fact, claim allegiance with the United States of America. Which, in my opinion, is saying they no longer wish to be considered a citizen of the United States of America.
I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.
What part of that phrase do these traitors not agree with? Do they not understand that, not only are they pledging allegiance to the Flag but also to the Republic. ie: the United States? I don’t care if you’re a legal immigrant or a natural born American, you live here, you reap the benefits provided by the United States, such as your freedoms and liberties, you partake in a multitude of social activities across a wide spectrum of diverse interests that are not allowed in other countries, you work, if you’re lucky enough to find and have a job, and you get paid. Maybe not what you think you’re worth, but you get paid and you spend that money here.
Yes, I know, the job and money situation is a whole other subject entirely, one which I will address soon. For now, back to the point …
If you live in the United States and claim and or want to be a citizen of the United States, then by god respect the United States and what she stands for. If you consider yourself an American, act like it, quit actin’ like a bunch of spoiled little brats that didn’t get your way. I swear, these people remind me of a 5 year old holding their breath because mommy or daddy said no, and in our current PC climate the government succumbs to them, picks them up, hugs them and say’s, “It’s OK honey, daddy’s sorry for being such a mean person for not letting you play in traffic, here, you just go right ahead now, have fun!” You know what I was told?” Go ahead and hold your breath, you’ll start breathing again when you pass out,” and you know what else? I learned my lesson and was better for it.
Free speech is an awesome thing, it is a great responsibility, but with that responsibility there is a need for caution, because “For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.”
If these millennials, referees and athletes want to protest something, why not protest for the millions of homeless children, or veterans? Why not hold a demonstration for PTSD awareness for our soldiers returning from a war that should have been over years ago? How about a million man march in Washington DC over the phenomenal and outrageous lie the Obama administration pushed down the throats of Americans, called The Affordable Health Care Plan? Affordable??!! That’s ludicrous!
If a person want’s to “Take A Knee”, do so in the spirit of brotherhood against ISIS and all the other terrorists that want to see the United States and everybody in it, burn.
I am an American, I Pledge my life and livelihood to the United States of America. I will defend her until my last breath if the need arises and or I am called upon to do so. I will defend my life and the lives of my loved ones according to the rights and liberties granted to me by the Constitution of The United States of America.
