NY Times: American Flag Has Been Hijacked
By Red Staters

Original Article

Posted By: Dreadnought, 7/3/2022 11:37:09 PM

New York Times columnist Margaret Renkl may be based in Nashville, but she’s as contemptuous of Trumpers and Red Staters as any of the paper’s Manhattan-based writers, as shown in her latest self-important trashing of an American holiday: “The American Flag Belongs to Me, Too, and This Year I’m Taking It Back.” She reminisced how in her younger days, “We were all proud to be Americans, even if we didn’t agree about which aspects of our sprawling, messy democracy merited pride.” Not anymore though, with Old Glory now hijacked by the Red Staters, in all their irredeemable tackiness. Take a drive through any red state, and you will see American flags

You (Expletive Deleted) leftists have hated the American Flag (and what it stands for) for decades, and long ago forfeited any rights to complain about anyone 'hijacking' it. A pox upon you all.

From the polling I've seen, the Supremes decisions represent the majority opinion. Also, ever since Brandon stole the Presidency, the American flag has become a symbol of resisting Brandon's overreaching government. The liberal cities would starve if not for "fly over" country.

The problem Margaret Renkl is, we can all have our beliefs in this "messy democracy", but when one side considers their opinion counts more than the other side, and have no problem telling us about it, we have a problem. Perhaps she should try to figure out what happened between her "younger days" and now. Maybe she should try to figure out why all the cities with the highest murder rates are operating under democrat control. The democratic leadership in Washington all have been there for decades, yet they blame Trump who was only there for 4 years for everything wrong & are happy to dismantle all the good he did. The coming recession or depression will separate the the masses into 2 groups, the survivors and the others. I have a feeling Ms. Renkl is one of the others and as a foot soldier for the powers that be, will wonder what happened to her world.

Margaret Renkl lives in a mildly blue city in a deeply red state. She enjoys paying no state income taxes as well as very low Real Estate taxes compared to Blue States. In fact one of the principal the reasons she pays such low real estate taxes is because of all the revenue that Nashville gets from visiting red-staters who are in large part also supporters of the MAGA movement. If Margaret Renkl had any integrity, she would move to a deeply blue state where she could live under the laws and policies that she espouses. But being a fraud, she won't.

Ok all you patriots out there in America, the newest MAGA movement is #MakeAmericaGodlyAgain We are at war and we wield the sword of the Lord in our battle with the enemy. All you enemies within this nation will fall like Goliath and fall like Jericho's walls fell and like how Gideon's army blew the trumpets and broke the pots of light and their enemies were slain. We go with the Lord before us and when the time comes he delivers our enemy into our hands because we believe in Him and have faith in Him. King Biden and Queen Kamala and Price Newsome, you will all be struck with the sword of the Lord. The wrath of God is mighty and he will punish those who commit iniquities in His eyes.

Don’t they already have a flag their pledge allegiance to? It’s that colorful one. The one celebrating their most admired segment of the population, the LGBT+. You go right ahead and fly your symbol of all things depraved and we will proudly fly Old Glory. You do you and we will do us.

I love my country, and the flag that represents it. Always have, always will. Nothing has changed. I've lived and travel around the world and there is no place I'd rather be. I hit the cosmic lottery being born in America. It's not us who have changed, it's the crazy left who wants to memory hole our founders and our founding documents, and turn this beautiful country into a Marxist hell-hole. Good luck using the stars and stripes to represent that!

"now fighting a raging internal battle not to hate everyone whose decisions, large and small, have led to this political moment." THUS the difference between the Left and the Right. 50 years ago, an activist SCOTUS STOLE the rights of the people, as defined by the Constitution, to IMPOSE THEIR WILL on the Country. The Right was upset. They believed that the issue was MURDER of CHILDREN, not something as maudlin as "privacy". Yet they did not try to burn down the Country for fifty years. They marched amazingly peacefully. Most did not hate the Left. They strongly disagreed and worked, as best they could, to a reversal of Roe. It was a long hard road because the SCOTUS is politically ISOLATED from the People, the REASON the Constitution places the responsibility for MAKING LAWS in the elected, and accountable, Legislature. The Right could have attacked the SCOTUS and attempted court packing schemes. They didn't. For fifty years, Roe defied the will of the majority of Americans, that abortion should be limited and rare. It took a STRONG CONSERVATIVE President and a fortuitous conjunction of SCOTUS retirements to tilt the balance of the court to its constitutionally described role. Now abortion is in the hands of the states, as it should be. As usual, dems are self mocking. "This is my country, too, and I will not surrender it to a vocal minority of undemocratic tyrants.". The reality is, a mostly soft spoken MAJORITY are in favor of abortion restrictions. It is a SCREAMING, HYSTERICAL, progressive MINORITY that tyrannically demand unfettered abortion rights.

Fed increases key interest rate by 0.75

Another month, another outsize interest rate hike. The Federal Reserve raised its key short-term rate by three-quarters of a percentage point for a second straight month Wednesday in a bid to corral soaring inflation, matching the largest increase since 1994. It puts the federal funds rate – which is what banks charge each other for overnight loans – at a range of 2.25% to 2.5%, close to the Fed’s 2.5% long-run, or neutral rate. That’s the rate intended to neither stimulate nor curtail economic growth. In recent months, Fed Chair Powell has said the central bank must “move expeditiously” to that neutral level and then likely beyond it

Walmart issued a profit warning Monday, cautioning that its second-quarter operating income would be lower than expected and would show a decline of about 13 percent. The announcement quickly caused other major US retailers’ stocks to plunge, wiping out over $100 billion in stock market value in after-hours trading.

Don’t go, Boss! That’s my strong advice to President Trump as he prepares to deliver a speech in Washington, D.C. on Tuesday at his alleged “think tank,” the America First Policy Institute (AFPI). Yes, it is important for President Trump to have a well-credentialed stable of policy experts capable of both building a 2024 platform and finding solid MAGA talent to populate a new Trump Administration. But the AFPI Trojan Horse—whose leadership is now bragging about how it will staff Trump’s “shadow cabinet”—is decidedly not that.

President Joe Biden said Monday that Republicans who voted against banning assault rifles are not on the side of police in America. Speaking virtually to attendees at the National Organization of Black Law Enforcement Executives conference in Orlando, Florida, Biden said that Republicans who refused to ban so-called “weapons of war” are not telling the truth when they claim to support law enforcement. In particular, Biden called out Governor Ron DeSantis (R-FL) and Senators Marco Rubio and Rick Scott (R-FL) for refusing to support Democrats’ gun control efforts. “Being a cop today is a hell of a lot harder than it’s ever been,” Biden said during his speech.
