From Stewart Rhodes:

This statement by USA Today made me laugh:

Today, June 14, is Flag Day — a celebration of the American flag at a time when few can agree on how to properly respect it.

The flag has grown unusually political over the last year: President Trump has frequently expounded on the need to “stand proudly for the national anthem,” condemning NFL players who choose to kneel in protest. To some, the flag stands for the freedom of open expression; to others, it represents the sacrifice of military service.


“When few can agree on how to properly respect it?”   Balderdash!  Millions of Americans,the vast majority of millions, 99.99%, agree completely on how to properly respect it – Don’t let it hit the ground, stand and salute/put hand over heart when it is presented, and likewise stand the F – up and turn toward the flag, hand on heart or while saluting (if you are a veteran) when the National Anthem is sung.   No mystery or complicated discussion needed for us.  We the people agree overwhelmingly on how to properly respect it. It is only a tiny minority of radical communists and their fellow-traveler “activists” and a tiny group of spoiled, rich athletes, who don’t agree with the rest of us on how to properly respect it, because they DON’T respect it.  It’s not a mystery.

Those who actually respect the flag know perfectly well how to “properly” do that.   Those who don’t respect it show by their actions their contempt for their own country and its flag.   Leave it to a leftist rag like the USA Today to try to make it sound like we are all stumbling around today, scratching our heads in bewilderment on how to properly respect the flag, and having heartfelt discussions expressing dismay at our inability to agree.   Roll eyes.   They live in a fairy-tale land of their own little far left bubbles.  Out here in the real world, the average American knows exactly how to respect the flag, as is clear at every high school sporting event, every parade, every other public event or gathering where the flag is flown and the anthem sung.   Long may it wave.

  1. Fantastic! You nailed it. Every American citizen natural born or naturalized are required to know the proper etiquette for handling, hosting, lowering, saluting and disposal of our nations colors as required by law passed by Congress and signed by the executive. Time to start prosecuting those who violate the law.

  2. Absolutely. You nailed it. The Stars and Stripes is OUR FLAG and demands the respect that it deserves. It is the ONLY flag that unites us ALL. Time to remind the commie teachers that OUR BANNER allows the freedom that they enjoy. Bring the Pledge of Allegiance back into our school day.

    YOU DO NOT BURN IT, YOUR DO NOT WALK ON IT AND YOU DO NOT LET IT TOUCH THE GROUND.

    God Bless America.

  3. The “Stars and Stripes” is a physical representation of our Constitutional Republic, and the people who have fought for her since her conception.

    From an unnamed book about the flag published in 1977 by the House of Representatives… “The star is a symbol of the heavens and the divine goal to which man has aspired from time immemorial; the stripe is symbolic of the rays of light emanating from the sun.”

    The fifty stars represent the current fifty states, and the stripes never change in number as they represent the original thirteen colonies. Betsy Ross made the first flag when George Washington commissioned her to make it, this was after Washington and a few other men drew on a piece of parchment the design they settled on. https://owlcation.com/humanities/What-Does-The-United-States-Flag-Mean

    Throughout history, the number of stars on the flag has changed. As each state joined the United States of America, another star was added. On July 4, 1960, Hawaii was the final star that completed the flag that we know today.

    The stripes found on the American Flag stand for the first thirteen colonies which were:
    Virginia (1607)
    New Jersey (1618)
    Massachusetts (1620)
    New Hampshire (1622)
    Pennsylvania (1623)
    New York (1624)
    Maryland (1634)
    Connecticut (1635)
    Rhode Island (1636)
    Delaware (1638)
    North Carolina (1653)
    South Carolina (1670)
    Georgia (1733)

    The star’s shape chosen to represent each state was in and of itself a unique decision. Prior to the end of the 18th century, six, seven, and eight pointed stars were far more common than a five pointed star. Some speculate that the five-pointed star was chosen to further separate the United States from Europe. Another theory is that Betsy Ross came up with the five-pointed star because it was easier to do with one snip of the scissors than a six pointed star. No one knows for sure, but the five-pointed star was a unique decision that allows our flag to be that much more special to Americans.

    The colors were deliberately chosen to represent a theme that our founding fathers felt was important to the building of our nation.
    Red stands for courage, hardiness, and bloodshed. Courage because our country is based on the courage of separating from what we once knew, courage of starting over, courage of fighting for our freedom. Hardiness because our founding fathers believed our country will outlast the land that we came from. Finally, blood shed to honor all those who lost their life for our freedom and our country.
    White stands for purity and vigilance: purity because our country is independent and is not corrupted by any other country. Vigilance because our country needs to be alert and careful in the choices we make.
    Blue stands for justice and perseverance: justice because it is the basis of our country, and perseverance because although our nation is young, we will stand strong against all opposition.

    Whenever the United States of America’s flag is folded, there is a symbol behind each fold and tuck. It is not random, but very purposeful. This is one reason why they will fold an American flag at a veteran’s funeral.

    The flag is always folded so that way only the blue and white stars can be seen. One reason they do this is so that none of the red shows, because it stands for the blood shed. We want to remember the person’s perseverance and vigilance, not the loss of the person.

    Even the shape is considered when folding the flag. It is in the shape of a triangle so that it symbolizes the hat worn by Revolutionary soldiers. It is because of these men that we have our freedom and our rights.

    Each Fold In the American Flag has Meaning
    Fold One – Symbol of life
    Fold Two – Symbol of belief in eternal life
    Fold Three – Honor and remembrance of veterans
    Fold Four – Symbol of our weaker nature
    Fold Five – Tribute to the United States of America
    Fold Six – Symbol of our hearts and devotion
    Fold Seven – Tribute to the Armed Forces
    Fold Eight – For those who went into the “Valley of the Shadow of Death”
    Fold Nine – Tribute to womanhood and its giving and nurturing nature
    Fold Ten – Tribute to our fathers who gave their sons to protect our land
    Fold Eleven – Dedication to Jews and represents the bottom of the Seal of King David and King Solomon
    Fold Twelve – Represents the Christian and glorifies God.

    Many do not realize that the Gadsden Flag also represents a part of our history. Here from “The True History Behind the Gadsden Flag” for those interested.

    In the fall of 1775, the British were occupying Boston and the young Continental Army was holed up in Cambridge, lacking the necessary supplies to last through the season. Welcome to the Battle of Bunker Hill. It was here that Washington’s troops—the young continental army—had been so low on gunpowder that they were ordered “not to fire until you see the whites of their eyes.”

    Soon enough, a merchant ship was returning to Philadelphia from a voyage to England. On board were private letters to the Second Continental Congress that informed Washington’s troops that the British government was sending two ships their way loaded with arms and gunpowder. An opportunity to capture supplies that they couldn’t afford not to capitalize on.

    A plan was hatched by Washington and the Second Continental Congress to capture the cargo ships. To do so, they quickly authorized the creation of a Continental Navy, starting with four ships, including the merchant ship that carried the information from England.

    To accompany the Navy on their first mission, Congress also authorized the mustering of five companies of Marines. Some of the Marines that enlisted that month in Philadelphia were carrying drums painted yellow, emblazoned with a fierce rattlesnake, coiled and ready to strike, with thirteen rattles, and sporting the motto “Don’t Tread on Me.” The Gadsden Flag originated in the Revolutionary War in a non-racial context.

    Christopher Gadsden was an American patriot. He led Sons of Liberty in South Carolina starting in 1765, and was later made a colonel in the Continental Army. In 1775, he was in Philadelphia representing his home state in the Continental Congress. He was also one of three members of the Marine Committee.

    Benjamin Franklin, actually helped him design the American rattlesnake symbol used on the Gadsden flag.

    1. I thought I would not make anymore comments. Cal, thanks for the education on the Flag. So much I did not know about it, but fold eleven? So we die and fight and lose our sons and daughters for Israel, not for peace and freedom for America a priority. Da Goyim know has many videos that should wake up Americans. Seems we already lost our country long, long ago.
      More like we are slaves of middle east, ancient at that.
