A NY Times staffer claims to be “disturbed” by see the national flag of the United States of America. Really? Yes Here’s the story link if you don’t believe me: https://thefederalist.com/2021/06/08/new-york-times-staffer-seeing-dozens-of-american-flags-over-the-weekend-was-disturbing/
That makes me wonder. Is it the national flag of EVERY nation she finds disturbing? Or just ours? Somehow, she sees a piece of cloth as a non-verbal threat. Lady, you’ve got some serious issues it seems.
This is symptomatic of the way we have failed to instill basic values into our children. They have no pride in their country, no knowledge of the freedoms they have compared to most of the rest of the world, no sense of history. They have not been taught the value of hard work, and the pride of a job well done. Many have been taught, consciously or unconsciously, to think that other people owe them a living., that selfishness is a good thing, and self-indulgence a virtue.
Is the USA perfect? Absolutely not! The only perfect country will be the New Heaven and Earth when Jesus returns to rule forever. So no matter where you live now, there are problems, problems that need to be addressed and dealt with. But judging everyone else to be “racist,” or “biased,” or “hateful,” or whatever is by definition THOSE VERY THINGS you’re judging others for! It is NOT our job to judge! Here are some hard truths:
- No one OWES you anything
- Life is hard – stop whining.
- If you don’t like the country you live in, MOVE. No one is preventing you.
- You CANNOT change either yesterday or tomorrow, ONLY today!
More and more these media employees, etc,. are sounding like toddlers crying because someone looked at them oddly. “Everything is a problem. everyone is hateful, everyone is wrong.” But we are supposed to mature and become adults, and look at the world properly, and not as a two year old does.
As for anyone’s problem with the American flag, sorry. I will fly it, display it, be proud of it. THAT is my right.
