Disabled Vet Sees Flag Getting Run Over by Cars. That’s When He Decides to Jump Into Action.

Published

Chris Ellenburg, a disabled U.S. veteran, was on his way home from work Monday afternoon when he saw something in the road that immediately caught his attention.

It was an American flag, torn and tattered, being run over with reckless abandon by motorists traveling the busy road. This was something Ellenburg just couldn’t stand for, so he decided to take action.

In a day and age when Old Glory is constantly disrespected by an ungrateful generation of socialist degenerates, it’s refreshing to see someone actually honor the flag and the nation it represents.

“I honestly could not believe it,” Ellenburg said. “I figured it was normal trash, but as soon as I saw the flag open up as it flipped over into my lane, I knew.”

Ellenburg was heated. He immediately pulled over and hopped out of his truck to rescue the tattered flag that was being run over by other drivers.

“You’re dang right I stopped traffic,” Ellenburg said. “And there were still disrespectful people driving by as I had this flag, picking it up off the ground in the middle of a freaking road.”

He said some drivers even honked at him to get out of the way.

As a disabled Army veteran, Ellenburg was trained to leave no man behind. He sees his fellow soldiers each time he looks at the flag.

“It wasn’t for myself, it was really for my buddies that died that I felt more disrespected for it,” Ellenburg said.

The flag itself was in pretty rough shape. It was covered in tire marks, holes, and torn stripes. Despite it’s condition, Ellenburg still considers the banner to be a prized possession.

“It may not have been to war, it may not have been in combat, it may not have flown over a military base,” Ellenburg said. “It may have just flown over somebody’s backyard, but it’s going to be honored for what it stands for.”

Ellenburg said he plans to properly retire the flag by burning it on Thursday evening.

Just in case you were wondering what kind of fellow this Ellenburg guy is, he also runs a nonprofit organization called “Over the Edge” which takes veterans and active duty soldiers out on hunting trips at no cost to them.

Our flag is more than a piece of cloth. It represents the ideals and values that have made America the greatest nation on earth. It also represents the sacrifices of the millions of Americans who have shed their blood, either on the battlefield or in some other capacity in the armed service, to protect those same values from destruction.

In short, it deserves the utmost respect, and that’s exactly what it’s getting from Ellenburg.

Psaki When Asked Why Joe Didn’t Wear Mask After Signing EO: ‘Bigger Issues to Worry About’

She’s going to be making plenty of excuses.

It is going to be a trip covering Joe Biden’s “presidency.” On Day 1, the guy signs an Executive Order mandating masks must be worn on federal property, then decides to not wear one later that same night at the Lincoln Memorial. When asked why that happened, new Press Secretary Jen Psaki dodged. Go figure. Didn’t Joe (and every liberal, for that matter) blast Trump whenever he didn’t wear a mask?

While Biden signed executive orders meant to combat the coronavirus outbreak, AP White House reporter Zeke Miller pressed him about his previously-announced goal of having 100 million Americans vaccinated within the first 100 days in office. Miller asked whether the bar should be set “higher” to encourage even more Americans to get vaccinated. WATCH: https://twitter.com/tomselliott/status/1352349221161197568

Report: President Trump Reportedly Thinking of Forming New ‘Patriot Party’

Has a ring to it, no?

Before you get too excited about that headline (thinking the GOP is done with Donald Trump no longer at the helm) imagine all the negative aspects that would come with forming a new party. 1.) It would divide the Republican Party in two. 2.) Having another major party would split the vote, meaning Democrats keep on winning. It’s not the greatest idea, if he’s serious about it. What Trump should do is start his own TV network and social media platform ASAP. MAGA TV. You’re welcome. Anyway, check this out… The outlet, citing inside sources reportedly familiar with the matter, said that the president would like to call the party the “Patriot Party.” “Trump discussed the matter with several aides and other people close to him last week,” the outlet reported. “The president said he would want to call the new party the ‘Patriot Party,’ the people said.” The Daily Wire reported that “top pro-Trump Republicans” close to the administration said that it was a “bad idea” and would effectively split the Republican Party so that it would be nearly impossible for Republicans or otherwise to defeat the Democratic Party in elections.
