You know what the ironic thing is about disrespecting the flag by throwing it on the ground, stomping on it, or setting it ablaze? The fact that that’s the only flag in the world that grants you the right to be that disrespectful. If you do that same thing to a Mexican flag in Mexico, you’re likely to get arrested for it. You do that in any country with that country’s flag, you’re likely to get arrested for it.
The fact of the matter is that these “Americans” have no idea what it’s like to live in a socialistic society. Yes, Obama was working towards making America socialist, but he ultimately failed. He failed because the Founding Fathers were smart enough to place restraints on the government with checks and balances and with presidential term limits. Obama could only ever have 8 years of running the country. At least directly. He maybe could’ve had a puppet in the White House, but thankfully that didn’t happen.
Now, back to my previous point about Americans having no idea what it’s like to live under absolute socialism. That has its pros and cons. The obvious pros are that no one had to suffer under socialism here in the States, even with Obama. But they also don’t know what others in the world have to suffer through. There are billions of people in this world that don’t know what true freedom is.
I’m a foreigner myself. I came to this country when I was in my preteens, so I didn’t experience socialism in anyway except for one: I wasn’t allowed to enter my country of origin (Argentina), say to visit family, and leave without having a little piece of paper that said both parents authorized me leaving the country. Even if I’m with either or both parents. You see, in Argentina, children belong to the government. If you want to do anything with them outside of the country, the government will stop you if you don’t have that “authorization” paper. Now, that’s relatively understandable for say, a five-year-old. But, like I said, I was in my preteens and entering my teenage years. I wasn’t some little kid that didn’t know what was happening. But the government didn’t care. That’s socialism (at least one aspect) for you. The government is the supreme ruler and you must obey everything it says, regardless of how silly its rules are. (Don’t mistake that for following the rule of law in the U.S., mind you).
But you see, America was structured the way it was for the sole purpose of keeping things like that from happening. They wanted the government to have as little power as possible while still being able to protect its citizens from harm, both from within and without.
“Government’s first duty is to protect the people, not run their lives.” – Ronald Reagan.
They wanted the government to be powerful enough to protect its citizens but not so powerful that it can and will run people’s lives. Socialism does the exact opposite. It doesn’t care about protecting its people and most certainly runs their lives.
So that’s what’s so ironic about disrespecting the flag: They do that to the very flag that gives them the freedom to do that. And they want a government that will ultimately take away many of their freedoms, including that one. They believe good to be evil and evil to be good. What’s very clearly evil (abortion, transgenderism, sexual lust and immorality) they believe to be good. And what’s clearly good (God, Christ, prayer, worship of God, what the American flag represents) they believe to be evil.
The Left has worked well to destroy all things that are good in this country. And they’ve deceived people into believing that the U.S. is the single biggest detriment to the world in its entire history. That’s why there are people that disrespect the flag as they do. They have taught people that socialism, the governmental equivalent to a chokehold, is good, while capitalism, the governmental equivalent to a handshake (as in both parties are equal and free to do business), is evil.
But here’s the kicker, while the Left believes it’s succeeding, God is watching and chuckles at the sight of evil believing it will be victorious.
“Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter.”
We bring you the TRUTH that the Left denies you. You'll live a more joyful and victorious life, because the Truth will set you free...
