Culture War
Many from both the right and the left bemoan the state of the American culture today. Whether it is the lack of positive images in TV, movies, music, politicians, sports figures, police in schools and more, freedom and morality are discussed as being in conflict with each other. Benjamin Franklin once wrote on the subject: "Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become corrupt and vicious, they have more need for masters." This should ring true to you today as we debate not only our eroding culture, but the role of government in our lives. Are culture and the need for more government control more connected than we realize?

Democrats try to downplay patriotism. Harvard study reveals why.

from The Gray Area:

Trump is gonna be front and center in Washington on Thursday. He’s asked for there to be tanks and a flyby on The Mall as part of the celebration of America. The Democrat Party, the American left is going bonkers.

They are saying Trump is politicizing the holiday, it is all about him, the Democrats deserve equal time, this has never been done before. All baloney!

So why would the Democrats be coming all out to downplay and even sabotage (protestors in the streets), this national holiday?

According to a Harvard study from 2011, an reported by Townhall, July 4th parades energize only Republicans, turn kids into Republicans, and help to boost the GOP turnout of adults on Election Day. "The political right has been more successful in appropriating American patriotism and its symbols during the 20th century. Survey evidence also confirms that Republicans consider themselves more patriotic than Democrats. This is a Harvard survey. They found that images, patriotic images — of, say, the American flag, fireworks, this kind of thing — the visual images, the graphics that are associated with patriotism remind people of Republicans. They promote Republican Party values — or, in this case, conservative values.

The Democrats know full well when people are exposed to American symbols and patriotic displays and songs, their political leaning moves to the right! Shortly after that study was made known, that’s when we became engulfed in this Kaepernick crap, the tearing down of our history. That’s called “art” and “free expression.” We had to topple statues, had to get rid of the flag. We now know this thing going on with Nike. This stuff is not accidental. It is purposely, strategically targeted.

Is there any doubt that what we’re dealing with here — is straight-up anti-Americanism?
