If you were to ask Americans even 10 years ago what the Stars and Stripes represented to them, you’d probably have gotten answers like “freedom,” “liberty” or “safety.”

That’s not something you’d have expected to change…

But over the past few years, our American flag has gone from a symbol of freedom and safety to a flag of bigotry and racism.

Not to the rest of the world…

But to some of America’s own citizens.

The Left has figured out a way to politicize EVERYTHING in their quest to seize and keep power.

They’re not trying to bring change to America — they’re trying to reshape it by rewriting history.

Now, conservatives will be the first to admit — American was, is and never will be “perfect” — as there truly is no such thing…

But what most conservatives DO believe is that, while America may NOT be perfect — it is as close to perfect as the world has EVER come.

While we may need to make improvements along the way — the fact remains that our nation is an incredible accomplishment of human endeavor — and its values should be defended wherever attacked.

That’s not how liberals are viewing things…

They’re seeing America through very different eyes — eyes that see oppression and bigotry everywhere they look.

Bigots, Racists and Sexists EVERYWHERE!!

They’re doing something that almost everybody’s mother told them NOT to do…

They’re assuming the worst of people — not only of the past — but of the future and present as well.

Take the American flag…

If you were to ask “progressives” about the American flag, they’ll tell you that the flag is a symbol of oppression — that the American flag represents bigotry and an open attitude towards slavery.

Whereas that was NEVER the case.

Who IS Making the Rules?

Were there slaves in America? Yes, to our great shame, there were. There have also been murders, rapes and child abuse in America too…

The flag doesn’t represent those acts of evil any more than it represents slavery — and to put the onus on a flag that has meant so much to so many people from so many different countries is not only unfair, it’s downright ludicrous.

It’s ridiculous to think that a flag that was created to represent liberty and freedom is now considered a symbol for the opposite.

Since when?

Who makes that distinction?

Who gets to choose what is and isn’t represented by our flag?

It’s funny — America can stand up to the fiercest enemy without blinking an eye, but seems to bow down to anybody who claims to be oppressed or marginalized in the least bit.

Yet we continue to allow it to happen…

We continue to let liberals dictate the direction of our country. We’re allowing these leftists to force companies to pull products because they offend them.

Well, here’s a fact the Left may not know or care to hear — but it’s a fact nonetheless…

Just because you’re offended doesn’t mean you’re right.

Taking offense to something doesn’t mean that everybody takes offense to it — nor should the actions of many be dictated by the feelings of a few.

Their feelings do not trump our rights…

Their feelings do not get to dictate what is and isn’t American…

And it’s high time we remind them.

“But a Constitution of Government once changed from Freedom, can never be restored. Liberty once lost is lost forever. When the People once surrender their share in the Legislature, and their Right of defending the Limitations upon the Government, and of resisting every Encroachment upon them, they can never regain it.” — John Adams
