[August 6, 2022] The Gadsden flag has been around in America for a long time, 247 years to be exact. Recently, the flag – or its symbolism – has been controversial. The FBI flagged it and the Betsey Ross flag as “extremist” and associated with “anti-government or anti-authority violent extremists.”
Of course, the FBI also says, “The use or sharing of these symbols alone should not independently be considered evidence of [Militia Violent Extremism] presence or affiliation or serve as an indicator of illegal activity….” No kidding: I would say that they are nearly always evidence of patriotism. So why did the FBI single out these symbols as something to be on the lookout for? Perhaps the FBI is corrupt. Many have said as much.
Meanwhile, the state of Florida just announced they would issue the Gadsden flag license plate. Proceeds will go to aid Florida’s veterans. Maybe the FBI will see this too as “extremist.” The media is mearing it as a “racists” / “domestic terrorist” symbol. Of course, that is absurd.
Why do liberals hate the Gadsden Flag? Because it stands for freedom, of course, but more importantly, it is patriotic. Hence their hate for the Betsy Ross flag, too. In truth, their real target is the American flag. Liberals won’t rest until it becomes impossible to display the Stars and Stripes because the U.S. flag symbolizes racism and oppression. That is where all of this is going.1
This kind of behavior by the FBI would not be possible under a government run by and for the people. We are governed by the consent of voters at the ballot box. And, we let our fellow politicians know our desires (1 of 4 rights guaranteed under the 1st Amendment). The Democrat Party has gone full anti-American. That is, indeed, unfortunate. My question is, Why do Democrats love Communism and hate freedom?
