To be patriotic or not to be…..
Now this is the question that most Americans are asking now days. It seems that people true colors are coming out with all the hot debates about patriotism and kneeling during the national anthem and what some people consider disrespecting the flag. Now the question of patriotism and the flag is a Heated topic. I was hoping to get Ray Lewis input on the situation but Ray Lewis’s is tired from trying to playing both sides of the fence poor little Ray Ray bless his asthmatic heart.
Deceptions and lies…
Now the so-called patriotic people was upset at Colin Kaepernick and other NFL players for kneeling during the national anthem. According to them disrespecting the flag and the military now I don’t agree with them but it is their first amendment right freedom of speech to disagree. Everyone has their own opinion and point of view on the matter. I understand that you think that kneeling is disrespectful in your eyes. And being the all American patriotic person that you are would never disrespect the flag. Would you?
The Flag code…..
I ran across an article that I know the Patriotic People would love to hear about the U.S. flag code. Let’s begin with the flag code United States code title 4 chapter 1 section letter D the flag should never be used as wearing the parole bedding or drapery this would be considered disrespecting the flag. (hmm) That’s interesting I’ll get back to that later. Letter I of the flag code. The flag should never be used for advertising purpose in any manner whatsoever it should not be embroidered on such articles as cushions, handkerchiefs, printed or paper napkins, plates, and boxes this is also shown as a sign of disrespect. But surely every warm-blooded patriots would know this (right).
America the Hypocritical
White America has approach this patriotism conversation with the attitude of do as I say not what I do. Now according to the masses it’s un-American to kneel during the national anthem but White America has no problem putting the flag on beer cans clothing items bedding paper plates napkins etc for-profit.
Like I stated earlier in the flag code chapter 1 letter I the flag should not be used in any type of advertisement purpose at all but yet White America does this everyday for profit. Now this is considered disrespecting the flag so how patriotic are you really. To have a strong conviction about a matter only to turn around and do the very same thing that you have condemn a person for is very hypocritical.
Honesty is the best policy…
White Americans what are you really mad about. Is it really about the flag the same flag that white American people disrespect every day. Remember the Flag should not be used for any type of advertisement flag bikinis, flags on beer cans, flags on NFL helmets, major league baseball caps, NBA Jersey and bank logos. But yet product are made and sold for profit every day so who’s really disrespecting the flag America.
