Since When did it Become Un-American to be Patriotic?

America is for Americans – either love it – or leave it.

(True Conservative Pundit) The recent actions of the congressional group, “The Squad,” along with many other Democrats leads one to ask this question: what does it mean to be an American?

“’I took an oath to uphold the constitution. I’m as American as everyone else,’ Omar declared in April.”

The prominent Muslim Rep. Ilhan Omar tells us she is an American, but is she really?  Well I would say this to Omar: if being an American is defined by being an anti-Semite, accepting support from America’s enemies and taking their side (CAIR and Iran), fighting against what is good for America, such as protecting our border, demanding funding be cut for the Department of Homeland Security etc., then yes Omar, you are an American.

Omar and the rest of “The Squad” have demanded that funding be cut for DHS, especially because of their views on illegal immigrants – which do not line up with what is good for America, or even common sense.

“They claimed DHS has ‘promulgated an agenda driven by hate — not strategy.’

‘Cut, do not increase funding,’ they wrote, urging lawmakers to follow “critical” guidelines to protect immigrant families. ‘The deal reached by the Conference Committee should not allocate any additional funding to this department or to the ICE and CBP agencies. The upcoming FY 2020 budget process will be a critical opportunity to take up conversations about reforms to the agency. In the meantime, not another dollar.’” (Source)

So, protecting our country from gangs like MS-13 (who are known to be ruthless and vicious killers), making a good faith effort to lessen the flow of drugs, not allowing dangerous criminals and murderers free and open access to America, not to mention the horrific diseases many migrants carry – this is “an agenda driven by hate.”  From where I am standing, this is only common sense and the only logical course of action.

Many Democrats professed that illegals needed to be deported, stopped from entering the U.S., that border security was important for the U.S. to implement and strengthen – before these same Democrats did a complete 180 and said that Trump’s actions in attempting to protect and defend our country from these people – who honestly don’t give a damn about America to begin with, was and is wrong, hateful, and immoral etc.  But don’t take my word for it, watch the video below:

Tied in with the Democrats need to eliminate ICE, leave the Southern border open with no more wall building, and allowing all immigrants into the U.S. – without proper vetting, health checks, and other little details like following the law (that they themselves supported in the not so distant past – see above video), is the Democratic love for sanctuary cities and even states.  The Democrats also support letting all the illegals in the U.S. stay here, isn’t that nice of them?  The keyword here: illegal…

Here is what the Democrats will not speak of: many of these illegals are here sucking up resources that could and should be going to American citizens – like health care, food stamps, and schooling.  Many illegals are drug dealers; murderers, gang members, rapists, and many carry dangerous diseases.  This is in no way racist, rather it is common sense that a country’s resources should be allocated to the particular country’s own people – not those who break the law and are here illegally.

President Trump at one point suggested that the illegals should all be shipped off to the Dems precious sanctuary cities since they love them so much.  Sounds reasonable to this writer, how about you?  Nancy Pelosi who is an ardent supporter of the illegals and sanctuary cities did a very quick about-face after trump offered to send them to her city:

Let’s go back to my original question at the beginning of this article: what does it mean to be an American?

If you are an American, I have to ask: is it not normal to love your country and feel patriotic about it?  Is it not normal to defend your own country?  Furthermore, is it not normal to protect one’s country from those seeking to harm it, and/or seeking to use it for their own gain at the expense of said country’s own citizens?

One word: YES.

Trump wants immigration to be based on merit; Democrats instantly responded that this was hateful.  Funny, but the Democrats beloved Mexico (whom has a history of allowing and even helping illegals cross into America) has a merit-based immigration policy – if you cannot prove that you can contribute in a structured and positive way to the well-being and the advancement of Mexico, take a hike Jack.  Huh…

American colleges are turning out legions of future Democrats whose ideals are most definitely not American.  These young impressionable minds are being taught in fact to hate America.  What else would you call it when you are taught that:

  • All people have to be allowed to come into the U.S.
  • The U.S. is bad because we are successful
  • Prisons should be closed down
  • Police officers are all racist haters
  • Christians are racist haters and bigots and are deserving of death
  • All viewpoints must be in line with Leftist progressive thinking
  • Sanctuary cities must be allowed and protected even at the expense of the American people
  • Capitalism is wrong and evil
  • Socialism is right and good for all
  • Islam is good, Christianity is bad
  • All manner of perversion is ok, because everybody has rights
  • Everything should be free because we deserve it
  • Censorship of everyone not in agreement with Leftist ideology is ok and is warranted

What about those that turn what should be a moment of respect for one’s country and its symbol, (the flag, the National Anthem – and by extension our military) into a moment of protest?  This is completely unacceptable.

What about the recent blowup over Nike’s new shoes that would have featured the flag Betsy Ross designed – that is until America hating Colin Kaepernick informed Nike that these new shoes were “offensive”, and Nike promptly pulled them from the market on Kaepernick’s say so.

Just. Like. That.

Who is this washed up NFL wannabe to tell Nike or anyone else what is “offensive.”  Can’t Americans decide that for themselves?

This is the real danger here you see – you have the Democrats, who almost universally are Leftist progressives headed up by the likes of the brainless America-hating “Squad,” dictating policy and what is acceptable and what is not acceptable for Americans to see, hear, purchase, or have.

Social media is run by these Leftist socialists, and unless you have been living under a rock – it should be very apparent to you that they have no qualms about determining what is acceptable for us to view on social media.  These leftist ideologues have wrongly given themselves the power that belongs only to the American people.  The power to choose belongs solely in the hands of the American people, not a select few.  Do you see the enormous danger here?  This is how a totalitarian society is formed, soon it will no longer be a Republic, we will be a socialist nation, which will, in turn, evolve into a communist nation.

The majority of people reading this will likely scoff and say that this can never happen.  It was not supposed to happen in Germany either.  I have news for We the People – this is all happening right now even as you read this article.  Look at the suppression on social media, especially Twitter, YouTube, and Facebook.  No one is putting a stop to that as of yet.  Look at the suppression and outright lies of the majority of our media – and it gets worse every day.  If you look into what the schools (more like indoctrination centers) are teaching, you will be horrified, and no I’m not kidding.

I encourage you to read my newly released book that looks at all of this more in depth: Spiritual Darkness is Destroying America and the Church.

Kneeling during the National Anthem is unpatriotic, and so is saying that a shoe displaying a flag from our heritage is “offensive.”

Supporting policies that are self-destructive to the people of this great nation, well that is also unpatriotic.  If you are a patriot, you are not for one minute going to support policies, laws etc., that are destructive and harmful to our own nation.  Neither are you going to disrespect our military and the many veterans that have served and even given their own lives to ensure we have the freedoms that we do.

To all of America’s veterans, I salute you, thank you so much for your service, God bless each and every one of you.

America has got to raise a ruckus and get these America hating socialists, and One World government lovers out of office.

America is for Americans – either love it – or leave it.

I love the video below, Toby Keith gets it, take a few minutes and watch this.  (Language warning at the end)

  1. You need only reflect that one of the best ways to get yourself a reputation as a dangerous citizen, domestic terrorist, or traitor these days is to go about repeating the very phrases which our founding fathers used in the great struggle for independence.

  2. Islam was banned from the United States in 1952. But the politically correct left doesn’t
    want us to know this because they don’t respect or uphold United States Law.

    The Immigration and Nationality Act passed June 27, 1952 revised the laws relating to immigration, naturalization, and nationality of the United States. That Act, which became Public Law 414, established both the law and the intent of Congress regarding the immigration of Aliens to the US and remains in effect today.

    Among the many issues it covers, one in particular, found in Chapter 2 Section 212, is the prohibition of entry to the US if the Alien belongs to an organization seeking to overthrow the government of the United States by “force, violence, or other unconstitutional means.”

    This by its very definition, rules out Islamic Immigration to the United States but this law is being ignored by the leftists. Islamic Immigration to the United States would be prohibited under this law because the Koran, Sharia Law, and the Hadith all require complete submission to Islam, which is antithetical to the US Government and the Constitution and to the Republic. All Muslims who attest that the Koran is their life’s guiding principle subscribe to submission to Islam and its form of government .
    Now the Politically Correct left would say Islamists cannot be prohibited from entering the US because Islam is a religion.

    HOWEVER on November 18, 1990 the 101st congress QUIETLY repealed the McCarren Warner Act forbidding “Muslims” from holding office; members of congress supporting this repeal were Dick Cheney, John McCain, Joe Biden, Al Gore, John Kerry, Mitch McConnell, Chuck Schumer, and Nancy Pelosi to name a few!

    So we now have a few Muslims voted into congress. Due to their faith, they refuse to put their hand on the Bible and swear to uphold our constitution. We are being destroyed from within our own nation. The Trojan Horse has made it into our government!

    Islam is not a religion. It is a governing doctrine that not only dictates religious beliefs, but also social behavior that includes laws, penalties and punishments, not by God, but by people if the laws are not obeyed. Islam is a form of government, not a religion. It does not belong here. By their own admission and the verses in the Quran, Islam’s goal is to dominate any land in which they enter and to kill and rape anyone who does not submit to their beliefs! That alone, makes Islam an enemy of the state and constitution. It set’s Islam above all other laws and does away with all constitutional rights afforded by the constitution!

    Weather it is a religion is immaterial because the law states that Aliens who are affiliated with any “organization” that advocates the overthrow of our government are prohibited. As previously stated Islam, Sharia and the Hadith ALL call for COMPLETE SUBMISSION and for no allegiance to anything else.

    According to Sharia law, Muslim men are allowed to practice polygamy. According to the Quran, a man may have up to four legal wives at any one time. (Muhammad had thirteen wives,) The husband is required to treat all wives equally. Let the beatings and mutilations begin! Why ANY Muslim woman here in the US would agree to live under Sharia Law is the mystery of the ages!!!.
    Everyone should be aware that Islam does not allow for abortions so each of these wives has an average of 8 children. Doing the math, within twenty years there will be enough Muslim voters in the U.S. to elect the President. Islam is not a religion Islam is a CULT!!!

    It is my belief that EVERYONE in the U.S. should be required to read this, however, unless each one of us passes this along the ACLU will not allow for this to occur let alone become publicized. I have done my part to pass this information on, will you forward this along, or will you drop the ball?

    Now we have a government that has completely stop listening to the taxpayers, the people who pay their salaries. Demorrhoids have deteriorated so far as to have an Anti-Semitic Muslim woman threatening the Jewish people and the LIEberal Democrats refuse to censure or impeach her. They refuse to protect our borders. That refuses to honor their oaths of office. The Democrats are now the enemy of the people!!!

    Islamophobe (is-slahm-oh-fohb) A non-Muslim who knows more than they are supposed to know about Islam

    The 3 Phases of Muslim Immigration.
    Phase 1 – Few in number – Oppressed Islam – Play the Victim – Claim Islamophobia – More Tolerant of Others
    Phase 2 – Large Minority – Indignant Islam Threatening – Demand Sharia Law – Intolerant of Infidels
    Phase 3 – Clear Majority Dominant Islam Militant – Strict Sharia Law – Kill/Subdue All Infidels
    For 1400 Years This Pattern Hasn’t Changed. There are no Moderates, as Moderates Are Irrelevant.

    Although many armed citizens of the US continually declare that they are prepared for hand to hand combat with Muslims, “please be advised that it’s not going to happen”. Islam’s intentions are to get enough bodies in your country to legally win a federal election, and then take full control of your once great nation. When that happens “what will all the brave Americans with guns do”? Do you think they will take to the streets and murder every member of the newly elected Islamic Party of America?
    If 330 million American’s cannot remove one Islamic president who was destroying their country, how would they be able to get rid of an entire political party that has full control over the country?
    The only thing that can save America “and Canada” is that all Islamic immigration be stopped “immediately”. If it is not stopped, it is guaranteed that the children of your grandchildren will suffer under

    Assimilate they say??
    We provide refuge. We provide welfare. We allow 100% of all Mosques. We allow Islamic Ideology into our schools. We are allowing Sharia Law by pretending it doesn’t happen. We are paying tax on Halal food. We allow fully masked (hooded) people to run the streets and enter into public spaces. We are making exceptions to our laws. – We are doing a better job at assimilating to the Muslim way of life than those who should be assimilating into our way of life!

    What do we expect from these Islamic fanatic radicals who are now two of our Democratic house of representatives members. Thank you Dearborn, Michigan and Minneapolis Minnesota. You are truly not Patriotic Americans.

    This is the beginning of trying to end America’s friendship with Israel. The defamation of the Jewish religion and race. The gathering and generating of sympathy for Islamic terrorists and terrorism. The total disrespect and general destruction of our American way of life. You can’t have Sharia Law and constitutional law coexist. They are diametrically opposed. You can’t have one part of our country Sharia and the other constitutional. So what is it going to be? Radical Islam or our U.S. constitutional law? It’s up to you, the American citizen, to decide.

    Muslims are Colonizing Under our Noses – Putting Muslim Representatives Into Position Only to Attack!
    Quietly colonizing & then waiting it out until there are enough Muslims in certain demographics-districts to then vote in their own Muslim representatives (see the McCarran Internal Security Act), which, by the way, explains an Ihan Omar, and a Keith Ellison, Hodan Hassan, Mohamud Noor, etc.


    Now for a little “tongue in cheek sarcasm

    I support a mosque being built anywhere in the US.
    I think it should be the goal of every American to be tolerant regardless of their religious beliefs. To promote tolerance, I would also propose that two nightclubs be opened next door to the mosque. We could call one of the clubs, which would be gay, The Turban Cowboy and the other, a topless bar, would be called You Mecca Me Hot.
    Next door should be a butcher shop that specializes in pork and across the street, an open-pit barbecue pork restaurant, called Iraq of Ribs. We could have a lingerie store called Victoria Keeps Nothing Secret and a liquor store called Morehammered.

    All of this would encourage Muslims to demonstrate the tolerance they demand of us. Yes we should promote tolerance, and you can do your part by passing this on.

  3. Greg, I found this article quite up lifting and a reflection of the opinion of many Christians.

    I’ve been many things over the last eighty decades, with some best forgotten, but one, that has never changed and that I’m most proud of, is being an American…….and the blessings it brings.

    I remember as a child being taught to stand when the Star Spangled Banner played, to stand with my hand over my heart and say the Pledge to our flag because it showed our respect not only to our great nation, but gratitude to those from the ones led here for freedom to worship and to the many that have given their lives so that we, as Americans, could rejoice in own lives. NO nation has been more blessed !!

    Old Fashioned perhaps, when the Stars & Striped pass, my chest swells and eyes tear with that same pride,

    China isn’t our worst enemy nor is Iran….WE are ! We have far too many Americans suffering from APATHY ! These are ‘good’ people that see the ‘swamp creatures’ and complain, yet, rather than ‘doing something’ they are so wrapped up in their own world that “let someone else’ take care of it. I’m too busy ” or maybe it just pure lazy.

    The decline of parenting and free fall of family units has left a huge void in the education and moral values. This can’t be corrected by a single person or organization. It means neighbors uniting with neighbors and recruiting others. Power is seized by those willing to stand and be counted and FIGHT for it.

    We’ve been given both good and evil so that we may ‘know’ good….and the brain to make a choice. I pray that this choice will not be squanderd or lay by the roadside.

    GOD blessed America….Let’s deserve it
