Folks in New York Whine About American Flag Mural. Here’s How One Small Town is Responding.

Sad there’s so much hate for the flag.

In modern day America it’s becoming “hip” to hate on the flag, to disrespect the values and principles it stands for, and to spit on those who fought, bled, and died to preserve freedom and liberty for all.

We’ve seen many examples of this attitude over the last few years, the latest of which comes from New York as as a local pizza joint in a small town has been taking heat for proposing an American flag mural to be placed on the side of its building.

However, despite the negative reaction from many, the shop has found a way to bring folks together.

Lisante’s friend Joey Garcia, a New York state corrections officer and Army National Guard veteran, organized an “American flag appreciation walk” to rally the community together and show their support for the flag, military, law enforcement, and the country.

“To me the flag represents many things: freedom, compassion, strength, and pride to name a few. In my opinion, we live in the greatest country on earth,” Garcia told Fox News. “But lately our Flag seems like it’s under attack. People today speak out against our flag and country so much and want to only point out what they feel is wrong with it. I understand and respect their right to their opinions, but I feel like those of us who do not feel that way have a voice too and deserve to be heard.”

The patriotic demonstration grew out of an effort to raise money on GoFundMe to pay for the materials and an artist to paint a vintage-looking mural of the American flag on the brick side wall of the pizza shop. Lisante said she got approval from the mayor, who told her to do a GoFundMe page and make the mural a community event.

Close to 500 people showed up to the flag rally Sunday afternoon, while a handful of protestors, who identified as anti-fascists, held signs like “Yes, I’m anti-AmeriKKKan” and “Stop Pretending your Racism is Patriotism” and chanted: “No Trump! No KKK! No fascist USA!”[…]

“Before we headed out on our walk I had a United States Marine come up and we had several veterans that were there come up, and in honor of all of the military heroes who have fallen, we had a military benediction read and then taps was played,” Garcia said, adding that a low moment came when one of the protesters tried to spit on the U.S. Marine who was in uniform.

Folks called these patriotic individuals racist, hateful, and even worse names, simply because they love their country and are thankful for the freedoms they enjoy on a daily basis.

It’s tragic that so much hate and anger exists in this country and that the divide that is separating us all is something that continues to be pushed by the folks in the mainstream media who have abandoned their calling to provide people with objective facts and have instead taken up a particular party’s agenda.

Hopefully these fine Americans are able to get that mural and display their love for their home country proudly without fear.

What type of man punches a person from behind, then literally tries to run away? The answer, of course, is a future Joe Biden voter. These people are highly mentally disturbed. It doesn’t matter where (or when) this incident took place. The fact is, neither Congressional Democrats nor the mainstream media will report on it. That’s the problem.

Man Painted As ‘Struggling Bar Owner’ In Biden Ad Is Actually Wealthy Donor, Report Says

They thought we wouldn’t catch it.

Democrats know their supporters aren’t the sharpest knives in the drawer. Let’s face it, if you vote for a liberal you’re basically telling the nation that you’re a dunce. Why lefties keep thinking they can sneak this type of nonsense past responsible reporters is ridiculous. And they refuse to quit! From New York Times: The premise seemed to be a politically savvy one: find an everyman bar owner in a battleground state whose shuttered business was struggling to survive during the coronavirus pandemic. But things often aren’t what they seem to be, as the Biden campaign proved this week when it emerged that a Michigan businessman who was the focus of one of its television ads criticizing President Trump’s handling of the pandemic also happened to be an “angel investor.” He had once described his inheritance from his wife’s family as “almost like winning the lottery.” The ad, which the campaign released to great fanfare during Sunday’s N.F.L. game between the Cleveland Browns and Pittsburgh Steelers, and posted on YouTube, has since disappeared.
