Hopefully, this Independence Day can give our nation a little bit of much needed perspective on the current violence and vitriol being spewed by the liberal left, and just how dangerous it can be.
This will take of somber reminiscence and thoughtful comparisons to the fights that we’ve faced over the course of our history as a nation. Not just any nation, however: America. The freest nation of them all. The beacon of light in a world with the curtains still drawn tightly in many of its rooms.
As we look around this beautiful land, there are some unfortunate realities to face: The political chasm between the right and the left has been polarized into unrecognizable fringes of thought. The sheer inanity of the liberal left on subjects such as transgenderism giving way to trans-humanism and the like, are just plain non-factual, and will frankly create a bit of an educational speed bump in an otherwise properly progressing world.
But, thanks to the corporate controlled media, this is the world we are shown and told to emulate. We are supposed to be enamored with everything and wish to be part of the global community…which is all fine and good, but what happened to the pursuit of happiness? Why is all happiness supposedly the same? That’s not how this works.
Diversity is the spice of the life, to paraphrase one of the oldest sayings in the universe. Why would Americans, the leaders in liberty, ever want to let someone else take the lead on what’s right for America?
This is just going to lead us into another debate over the connections between liberalism and globalism, and that’s not exactly what we’re here to do. Instead, we’re here to celebrate American individuality and sovereignty, just like some of our nation’s most popular musicians.
Only, as it turns out, social media is actively working to suppress our sing-song patriotism on this 4th of July.
Facebook was slammed by the Wes Cook band Tuesday after it prevented the country group from using the social network’s paid tools to promote its song “I Stand for the Flag.”
The Nashville-based group released a video for “I Stand for the Flag” on Facebook Monday morning. They planned to promote the video using the paid promotion tools that the social network provides. The request was initially approved and then rejected by Facebook, which cited the video’s “political content,” according to the band.
Late Tuesday, Facebook told Fox News that the decision has been overturned. “We recently announced anyone running ads about political or other major national issues must include a ‘paid for’ label,” explained a Facebook spokesperson. “After looking again, we determined that this ad doesn’t need that label. While this is a new policy, and while we won’t ever be perfect, we think knowing who is behind an ad is important, and we’ll continue to work on improving as we roll it out.”
The song features lyrics such as: “Don’t care if you’re black or white or who you love, I stand for the Flag and the Flag stands for all of us.”
Well, if Facebook won’t show it to you, we certainly will. Without further ado, “I Stand For The Flag” by the Wes Cook Band:
