Patriotism

Patriot fans tell the Patriot players who took a knee what they think of them: A follow up

by Skip September 26, 2017

An email from a loyal reader that I think was evoked by my post on the Pats succumbing the Left and allow, nay, encouraging politics to enter into the sports realm (emphasis mine): It is with a heavy heart that I will no longer be a supporter of any professional sport that permits their players […]

Data Point – Gallup: Fewer Dems To Proud To Be Americans

by Skip April 4, 2017

  “Sixty-seven percent of Democrats say they are “extremely” or “very” proud to be Americans, down 11 percentage points from a year ago. Republicans (92%) and independents (73%) are about as likely now as in 2016 to express such patriotic sentiments.” (H/T: The Blaze)

No surprise – now that the Republicans hold the Oval Office again

by Skip November 10, 2016

They accused us of blatant racism because Obama was black when we disagreed with his policies (not his skin color).  Can we hold these race-baiters accountable in reverse (Trump is white) because they only care about skin color? (H/T: Instapundit)

And you wonder why the MSM always is finding fault with USA?

by Skip September 17, 2015

This image from Big Government.  I almost don’t have to say a word, do I? Just a little handful standing to show respect.  And make no mistake, it is totally about respect. Or the lack thereof.  I can understand if technical crews are working during it – I’ve had to adjust and calibrate stuff when […]

Is Rudy Right? And Why is the Left Freaking Out Over It?

by Scott Morales February 22, 2015
Thumbnail image for Is Rudy Right?  And Why is the Left Freaking Out Over It?

When you go around criticizing Sam incessantly, apologizing for Sam over and over again, publicly hound Sam on his past failings it should come as no surprise that the people who see this behavior would conclude: “This guy is really not a fan of Sam.” And that’s precisely what Rudy Guiliani did this past week.

Notable Quote – George Will

by Skip August 18, 2014

…Progressives say corporations using inversions are unpatriotic, which is amusing. When the Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision stipulated that Americans do not forfeit their First Amendment right to political advocacy when they act together through corporations (including, and especially, incorporated nonprofit advocacy groups), progressives ridiculed the idea that corporations should be treated as people. Now, progressives charge that corporations resorting […]

Observation on Liberal view of Patriotism from Jonah Goldberg

by Skip July 8, 2014

From the latter part of his post: …It’s ironic. In 2009, conservatives (myself included) pounced when Barack Obama seemed to dismiss American exceptionalism as an empty platitude. “I believe in American exceptionalism,” Obama explained, “just as I suspect that the Brits believe in British exceptionalism and the Greeks believe in Greek exceptionalism.” Which is to […]

Quick thought: Patriotism is given to….whom?

by Skip January 2, 2014

Two different countries, two different people; both calling something either Patriotic or anti-Patriotic: Already there are high-profile cases of rich people who’ve left — movie star Gerard Depardieu and France’s richest man, Bernard Arnault of Louis Vuitton, to name but two. And France’s highly prized soccer champions are now vowing to go on strike.  Hollande […]

So, we put an “American Apologist” in charge of the WTC museum?

by Skip July 28, 2013

This iconic picture of firefighters raising the stars and stripes in the rubble of Ground Zero was nearly excluded from the 9/11 Memorial Museum — because it was “rah-rah” American, a new book says. Michael Shulan, the museum’s creative director, was among staffers who considered the Tom Franklin photograph too kitschy and “rah-rah America,” according […]

I bet that the Libs are all bent out of shape due to the Bruins, the Celtics, and the Red Sox

by Skip April 21, 2013

Jingoism: Jingoism is fanatical, over-the-top patriotism. For what seems to be forEVAH, we Conservatives hear from Libs that our feelings towards our country are jingoistic – over the top because we DO like this country and many of us love this country.  We love its traditions, we love the flag waving, we love singing one […]

What was the American Revolutionary War?

by Tim Condon July 4, 2012

Thomas Fleming, in the July 2, 2012 Wall Street Journal: As the Revolutionary Way progressed, “not a few of the rebels saw that the Revolution was a spiritual enterprise that would never really end.” For today’s American patriots, so it continues to be….

Patriots? I watched THOUSANDS of them yesterday

by Skip October 25, 2011

As I wrote here, Obama wishes to twist the traditional value of what a Patriot in the typical Liberal fashion – lowest common denominator.  You know, one of the events that most Liberals disdain (and even the effete, elite Republicans) is NASCAR, especially at the Sprint Cup – simply put, "redneck NASCAR fans" – the […]

So now we know why many Leftists don’t like saying the Pledge of Allegiance?

by Skip July 22, 2011

What have we come to as a nation when even the Flag is seen as an instrument of bias? Just a brief exposure to an image of the American flag shifts voters, even Democrats, to Republican beliefs, attitudes and voting behavior even though most don’t believe it will impact their politics, according to a new […]

I still suggest that you go and watch this "insurgency video" where Patriotism trumped "our betters" attitude! Got this long comment a bit ago – and I have seen it on other sites that also posted the video – I decided to post it up as it is worth reading what he has to say! […]

Patriotism – go ahead, be prissy and try to stop it.

by Skip October 22, 2010

Update: Shades of Jim Bender! After I posted this last night, something was nagging me from the back of my mind – and he was it! At the Seacoast Republican Women’s debate, the NH CD-1 Congressional candidates had gone on first, and The Pledge was recited at that time. The Senatorial candidates came on stage […]

Republicans recite it. Democrats smirk.

by Tim Condon July 4, 2010

Now look…these are all Republicans. And I’m not saying that none of them are RINO’s. We all know that a RINO will do or say anything. BUT…can you see ANY of today’s Democrats reciting the words below without wry and knowing smirks on their faces? I’m sorry. I just can’t. I wish I could.   […]

Quick Thoughts on the Fourth – Honor

Independence.  Freedom.  Liberty.  Patriots. Danger.  Rebellion.  Fear.  Excitement.  Determination. Honor. The above words that are often said on this Day of Remembrance when those intrepid Patriots that were the Fathers birthing a new nation.  They, of the conviction that their Vision was a new one, a far better one under which a People could live […]

To think about on July 4th…

by Tom July 4, 2010

The HBO Series, "John Adams", gave us a unique window into the hearts and minds of the Founding Fathers, as people, and as magnificent thinkers.  This scene captures the seriousness and difficulty of convincing 13 independent "countries", to break away from their Motherland, and for all involved to risk capture, torture and death…   Needless […]

We ARE the new “Red”

by Tim Condon May 4, 2010

I’ve always been bothered by the oxymoronic color-scheme imposed on Republicans in the political world. Somehow, somewhere, at some point, someone said switched the colors on us! ("Let’s call conservative and Republican states Red, and liberal, statist, socialist, Democratic states Blue!") Who came up with that stupid idea? The Washington Post—now there’s a reliable source, […]
