Hey NY Times, stop trying to make Old Glory a divisive symbol

Here’s where leftist America stands as the nation celebrated a festive Fourth of July after battling Covid-19 for the past 18 months.

The New York Times published a “news” story by Sarah Maslin Nir on Sunday headlined, “On July Fourth, Stars and Stripes and Division.” On the web it was entitled, “A Fourth of July Symbol of Unity That May No Longer Unite.”

The symbol of the writer’s ire was The American Flag.

“What was once a unifying symbol – there is a star on it for each state, after all – is now alienating to some, its stripes now fault lines between people who kneel while ‘The Star-Spangled Banner’ plays and those for whom not pledging allegiance is an affront,” Nir wrote.

This is the second time in as many months that the Times has sent a reporter to Suffolk County, Long Island — more than likely ultimately heading to the liberal Hamptons — to denigrate Old Glory.

Last month I wrote about Times editorial board member Mara Gay telling MSNBC that she was “really disturbed” to see flags bashing President Joe Biden, supporting former President Donald Trump “and some cases, just dozens of American flags,” flying from pick-up trucks during a weekend trip out to the East End.

Just last week in Sea Cliff, Long Island a vendor at a locally sourced farm pop up market was asked to stop selling his wooden painted flags, because it upset some patrons.

So here we are in 2021. If you wear a mask, then you are liberal. If you are triggered by Old Glory, then you are liberal, and the New York Times will back you up on that.

  1. ‘Old Glory’ is a symbol of freedom for many boomers in the Old World.

    We are old enough to remember the US’s sacrifice in two World Wars and its sizeable influence on the eventual outcome of those wars. The flag at the time was an inspiration to many nationalities not just Americans.

    For it to be disrespected now by its own people is hard to comprehend. The attacks are organised and deliberate and are all part of the divisive politics at work in America in 2021. The country is under attack from within it seems for the benefit of globalists and the countries major international rivals.

    Even Olympic Trialists are emboldened by the mood and this needs to be stamped out immediately. If you want to represent your country then you better respect the flag. Patriots gave their lives for that flag, so no respect, no ticket. It is not a topic for debate, there can only be one outcome. If the US Olympic Committee don’t take a stand on this issue then they are part of the problem.
