Flying other flags disrespectful

Posted

I am a concered citizen of the United States. I am loyal to God, my country and the flag. Many men and women died so that I can proudly fly my flag in my yard. I am writing this because I watched the 2019 World Series and I am upset that some of the National’s players were waving their flags from other countries. That’s not cool. They come here to the United States and reap all our fruits, but are not loyal to this country.

That is now how it works. If you want to fly your flag, then you need to go back to your country. There is only room for one flag, and that is the U.S. flag. We are welcoming to all, with the provision that you are loyal when you become a U.S. citizen, you take a pledge. I pledge of Allegence to the flag of the United States of America and to the Republic for which it stands, one nation under God indivisible with liberty and justice for all. It’s time we make them keep their pledge or depart. If all we do is worry about offending other people we will never be able to defend anyone. And when you take a knee, say a prayer. Stand up, America.
