Things are getting out of hand…

More and more American citizens are disrespecting the ideals and liberties that every generation has been working toward over the past 243 years.

They’ve not only taken our country for granted…

They’ve expressed their disgust and hate for America.

For patriots, this is the ultimate betrayal — as we love our country. We love its values. We love the opportunities it presents…

And we love what America has meant for the planet.

It’s been a symbol of hope, protection and freedom to those who are oppressed and dejected all over the world. People from almost EVERY country on earth are waiting and DYING to get here because they know that fact.

Yet, we have some of our very own citizens who can’t see that…

They have no problem kneeling for the national anthem, disrespecting our president and see our flag as a symbol of oppression.

Yes, there are people today who ACTUALLY believe that the AMERICAN flag is symbol of slavery and oppression…

And these are the same Americans that get to go to sleep in their air-conditioned homes every night with their freedoms intact, because they live in one of the most protective nations to ever exist.

It’s beyond crazy.

It HAS to be insanity…

Because what else could make Colin Kaepernick, an American citizen who grew up in suburbia, see the flag of the American Revolution as a symbol slavery and oppression and be offended by it.

Even crazier is the fact that Nike LISTENED to this obviously delusional person and pulled their Betty Ross flag shoe, in order to not offend anybody.

It’s TERRIBLE when a star athlete uses their platform to badmouth American…

But it’s even worse when that American represents our country in international competition.

TRUE Betrayal

Meghan Rapinoe is the captain of the world champion U.S. Women’s soccer team — she’s a fierce player and a prolific scorer — but for some reason has allowed her hate of Donald Trump to bleed over into how she feels about America.

Apparently, she hates America…

Since 2016, Rapinoe has decided to take a knee in protest of everything that’s wrong with America, saying, “I have chosen to kneel because I simply cannot stand for the kind of oppression this country is allowing against its own people. I have chosen to kneel because, in the words of Emma Lazarus, ‘Until we are all free, we are none of us free.’”

The “kind of oppression this country is allowing”?

What kind is that, Meghan?

Because where MOST of the country sits and sees how citizens are treated in Syria, Malaysia, China, Sudan, Russia, most of the Middle East and Venezuela, we see something that should be aspired to — not broken down.

And it’s a shame.

It’s a shame that a player of her talent, caliber and standing uses her platform to dress down the same country that gave her the opportunity to have that same platform.

Of course, she doesn’t see it that way…

She says that her talent is what has gotten her the platform to chide and badmouth America — and gives no credit to growing up in a country where freedom is valued and people get the opportunity to be recognized.

But again…

She’s a hell of a player.

Should Rapinoe Be Held Up to a HIGHER Standard?

She’s lead the team in scoring and to yet another world championship…

But what good is winning if you have poor character?

Is that what sports are supposed to do? Build character?

Apparently, Rapinoe must have missed that lesson…

But it’s ok, because she LOVES what the flag represents.

Rapinoe wrote, “I can understand if you think that I’m disrespecting the flag by kneeling, but it is because of my utmost respect for the flag and the promise it represents that I have chosen to demonstrate in this way.”

Really?

Yet during her celebration of the world championship victory, Rapinoe and one of her teammates had no problem dropping that flag on the ground to showboat.

Maybe in the offseason Rapinoe can see some of the rest of the world and visit some of the countries that truly oppress their citizens…

Maybe it’ll be a wake-up call to true beauty of America.

 

“We have been the recipients of the choicest bounties of Heaven… but we have forgotten God. We have forgotten the gracious hand which preserved us in peace, and multiplied and enriched and strengthened us; and we have vainly imagined, in the deceitfulness of our hearts, that all these blessings were produced by some superior wisdom and virtue of our own.” – Abraham Lincoln
