America’s flag and the national anthem are under attack by liberals and BLM activists because of their ‘racist’ nature.
While the argument against the confederate flag and monuments is somewhat understandable due to the connection with slavery , the complaint has now absurdly extended to the American flag and our countries Anthem. America is the most diverse country in the world and has been for over a hundred years. How exactly is a flag that stands for not only religious freedom but freedom for all the different cultures and races of the world racist? America is the land of the free where people who are living under the strict rules of an oppressive government flee to in the name of freedom yet these loony liberals think that disrespecting the country’s sacred symbols is an accurate protest against oppression? What?
Rashad McAdory said he will remain standing on the flag outside the Erie County Courthouse until his concerns about white supremacy and racial injustice in the local justice system and in the city of Erie as a whole are addressed.
“It is not my flag,” McAdory said. “I want to see the system change and the laws and help for the black community.”
McAdory, who said he is a veteran of the U.S. Air Force, said he’s outraged by a recent article that named Erie the worst city for African Americans to live, so he is protesting to bring awareness to that issue.
McAdory said he has been standing on the flag in front of the courthouse for several days and will continue to do so until “someone in charge” comes out and talks to him about his concerns.
On Thursday, a group of counterprotesters assembled next to him, holding up an American flag.
“I love America,” counterprotester Josh Castano said. “I appreciate his protest, but not standing on the flag. The national anthem and the flag are not foundations to stand on.”
