Since the death of George Floyd, athletes and activists have been saying that Colin Kaepernick’s kneeling protests were misunderstood and that they were never about the American flag. However, Kaepernick’s reasoning back when he first took a knee in 2016 say otherwise. Join MRCTV’s Nick Kangadis for a new edition of Out Of Left Field where he’ll remind everyone that his protest was, at least in part, about the American flag for Kaepernick. If you’re sick of being talked down to like you don’t understand what’s going on, Kangadis dishes out a little common sense, reason and logic that are typically non-existent when people become too self-righteous about a cause.
Is the U.S. flag a symbol of hate speech? That’s what documentary filmmaker Ami Horowitz wanted to find out when he went to UC Irvine, where the student government tried to ban displays of the flag in a main thruway. Watch and be amazed as Ami interviews the student who spearheaded the flag ban.
Info via YOUNG CONSERVATIVES:
Dennis Prager notes that no leftist leader in the world called Fidel Castro a “dictator,” calling him honorable for the most part. Dennis also reads from Hampshire Colleges president, Jonathan Lash, statement about putting the American flag back up on campus. Prager also speaks to the LAUSD offering counseling because Donald Trump won the Presidency. Here are a couple stories to enforce this:
✦ Despondent Democrats Bring ‘Therapy Dogs’ to Capitol Hill After Trump Victory;
✦ Women Says She’s “Lost The Desire” To Date Men After Trump Election;
✦ Emory offers counseling for students after pro-Trump chalkings;
✦ The 5 (or so) stages of celebrity election grief.
Dennis continues in calling out the Leftist agenda in making weak people, referencing his article on this topic: “Feminism Makes Weak Women.”
Here is how a friend puts the issue:
- “My conservative friends on FB, once proud, loud and arrogant are now incredibly silent. Buyers remorse anyone? Trump’s mental illness is self-illuminated with each passing day. What a freak show…. A year in jail and loss of citizenship for the burning of the flag? Read the constitution much?”
Larry Elder uses some audio (which I add video to) to build up to the main point… and it is this: “HILLARY CLINTON PROPOSED ACTUAL LEGISLATION DOING THIS!” That bill (S.1911, The Flag Protection Act of 2005) was co-sponsored by Clinton, and proposed in part:
- Any person who shall intentionally threaten or intimidate any person or group of persons by burning, or causing to be burned, a flag of the United States shall be fined not more than $100,000, imprisoned for not more than 1 year, or both. (SNOPES)
I had always seen this quote in writing [at the beginning of the segment], finally came across it.
Typically, Democrats burn the U.S. Flag. Republicans fold whats left.
Something that bugged me about the Democrats gathering in Philadelphia… and that is... the types of flags seen carried by Bernie Sanders fans as well as delegates on the floor in the DNC event. NOW, before going on, I wish to note for the detractors…
Just to be clear for the coming detractors… Snopes did show some American regalia and graphics on the giant screens in back of the DNC stage. But the Russian flags in the Sanders crowd outside…
…and the biggest flags inside the event were in fact Palestinian and Communist (above and to the right).
Mind you the SIZE of a flag doesn’t denote patriotism, but the Palestinians are governed by a terrorist group. And to be so predominate at a DNC convention is telling.
- A new global survey of Muslims by the Pew Research Center has found that Palestinian Arab Muslims polled the highest in favor of suicide bombings as a justifiable means “to defend Islam.” The poll also found that 89 percent of Palestinian Muslims favored sharia becoming “the official law of the land.”
I have an entire chapter reproduced on why this type of “total government” thinking is in line with Democrats and why Democrats would support a group of people that hate freedom and democracy, HERE (after the main post at the link).
Note also the Green Party Bernie Sanders fans waving the North Korean flag:
GAY PATRIOT has this update to the Democratic National Convention:
“They look like a bunch of yahoos,” Gralinski said. “Like in the paper, like ISIS in Syria going to take over a city. I don’t think they need that big flag on the back of the truck. That’s not America to me. Those are a bunch of terrorists. So, I’m going to ask you to take the flag off that truck.” (Daily Caller)
An American flag on the back of a fire truck and decals on the truck windows is leading to a new dispute at the Central Coventry Fire District. The firefighters union said they’re being asked to take them off. “The members are very upset,” Firefighters Union President David Gorman told NBC 10 News. “I have a couple members, armed service retired, retired from the guard.”
Clinton Laughs As Person Introducing Her Takes “Under God” Out Of Pledge (May 11, 2016). This removal then, divides the nation.
