New York Times columnist Mara Gay said Tuesday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” that she noticed trucks with American flags and was “disturbed” by what she saw.During a conversation about the January 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol, Gay said that she also saw trucks with anti-President Joe Biden messages and Trump flags and advised that the message she got from the American flags was: “This is my country. This is not your country.” “You know, it’s really concerning to me that the Democrats haven’t just gone ahead at this point and said, ‘We’re doing this on our own in terms of getting a commission together

I would like nothing better than to separate America, American greatness, and my whiteness from the likes of these commie idiots. This is our country...if you don't like it here, go find another one. If trucks with American flags disturb you, try North Korea. You can shove your commission up your sixes as well. I do not consent to be governed by commies, and I do not hear the words of you little snotflake pukes.

How special are these zealot Democrat Socialists that they cannot stomach flag-waving patriots or fans of the Bill of Rights? "Sit down and Shut Up or we'll get a commission going to address our concerns." Like all authoritarians, the White-hating cheaters want unquestioning control and the ability to punish THOUGHT. The Nazis would be proud of them.

Just because she misinterprets the message and has a large audience to bleat about it all, does NOT mean what she says is true. The flags say This is my country, yes, but it also says I love my country and I will not stand quietly by while you desecrate her, while you denigrate her history and demean the people who do love their country. Even the Love It or Leave It stickers imply that as a free country, which many of us wish to preserve along with ALL our uniquely endowed freedoms, those who are dissatisfied are free to leave. WE however, will keep what we have and fight to do so.

For Snow Flake Mara Gay: 1. Don't cheat to win elections! 2. Stop making everything about race. We have had enough of whining from losers like you! You and the people of your ilk are what is dividing this country. 3. Read No.1, and don't say it's without evidence! If you don't believe it, you and The Times should look into it. Isn't that what investigative journalism is about?

Well about 80% of the US population are White people with about 13% being Black people so her chances of seeing White people and their so-call “whiteness” vanish are quite slim. The American flag is the symbol of the entire nation and Black people who are Democrats or Republicans can fly it just as White people who are Democrats or Republicans can fly it. Maya Gay is groping at straws here and voicing her radical thoughts about the American flag will not be a winner for her.

Back in eighth grade, Ms. Gay's teacher told her that our flag stands for the republic established by our Constitution. And that it promises liberty and justice for all. Ms. Gay wasn't listening that day and has been resolutely incurious about the meaning of our democratic republic ever since. Being ill-informed but confident in her opinions, she is a perfect fit for the Grey Lady.

The Arkansas woman Hunter impregnated and refused to pay child support was a basketball mentor to both his and Barack Obama's daughters, he claimed in his emails.Hunter, 51, had an affair with Lunden Roberts, 29, and fathered a daughter, Navy Joan in 2018. He settled with Lunden out of court last year after she sued him for refusing to acknowledge the baby was his or pay child support. A court-ordered paternity test proved he was the father of her baby. Little was previously known about how Hunter met Roberts – though some reports claimed she was a stripper at a Washington DC club Hunter frequented.

Unlike the New York Times staffer who told MSNBC it was “disturbing” to see dozens of American flags flying last weekend, I loved seeing so many storefronts and houses decked out in flags and red, white, and blue bunting over Memorial Day. All year, I’ve noticed more flags than usual and wondered how many were silent acts of defiant patriotism in the face of so much homegrown anti-American animosity.On this Flag Day, the 244th anniversary of the Continental Congress’s adoption of the Stars and Stripes, it’s worth taking a moment to reflect on both the well-cherished and little-known history of Old Glory.

COVID shutdowns championed by U.S. governors and D.C. bureaucrats are responsible for destroying nearly 40% of small businesses since the virus was unleashed on the world—and we know now that it was for little to no damned good reason. A study by the Proceedings of the National Academies of Sciences revealed recently that shutdown orders made little to no difference in COVID’s impact. From the abstract of the study: “Previous studies have claimed that shelter-in-place orders saved thousands of lives, but we reassess these analyses and show that they are not reliable. We find that shelter-in-place orders had no detectable health benefits, only modest effects on behavior,
