Spitting On Old Glory and Country!

While USA Patriotism! is a nonpolitical site ... as its owner and founder, I am very disappointed and annoyed ... angry too ... over the pro athletes and other American citizens ... exercising their "misguided" ... freedom of expression ... during the National Anthem with Old Glory ... waving live ... on a stadium's viewing screen ... or anywhere else!

Their respective reason(s) ... regardless if it's personal or collective ... for kneeling and/or doing something else ... other than to express one's respect ... accordingly ... is ... an insulting mockery of ... a priceless unifying symbol of national pride!

It is like ... spitting ... on ... the constitution ... and the Founding Fathers' other noble efforts ... our brave, honorable ... active troops ... law enforcement officers ... other first responders ... all their respective A fallen troop's flag draped casket being carried by an honor guard.veterans ... the grave of every fallen hero .... and ... the overwhelming majority of Americans ... who feel the same as I do!

In fact ... it is ironic and ignorant ... that anyone ... looking back in history ... relative to that time period's cultural mindset ... bred from many generations ... even before 1776 ... can argue that ... today's cultural and social mindset ... applies ... to the leaders of a generation ... over 200 years ago ... without willing to grasp ... that there would be ... no USA and Her freedoms ... enjoyed today ... without gaining HER independence ... and ... the noble efforts ... of the Founding Fathers!

America's history ... is HER past ... with ... striving not ... to repeat the unacceptable ... in HER history ... And that is what every American should do ... now ... and ... in the future!

Note... "Spitting On Old Glory and Country!" is also written as a poem with a video.
