Even within our own borders, it often seems as though the American flag is under attack.
At least one citizen has had enough of it.
In other cases, protesters have burned the flag as a symbol of their hatred of the country that gives them the freedom to burn the flag in protest.
Try heading to Sinjar and publicly burning the flag of the terrorist group that calls itself the Islamic State and seeing what that gets you.
But I digress.
The fact is, patriotic Americans find creative ways to fly the American flag and challenge those who would object.
And that’s exactly what this truck-owning citizen did (H/T Western Journalism):
In addition to the flag flying on a short staff, between two large stickers of American flags, large white letters ask, “Does my American flag offend you? Call 1-800-Leave-The-USA.”
I certainly understand those who protest this or that action of the U.S. government — I’m not always so thrilled with what Washington bureaucrats do myself.
But dishonoring the country’s flag is no way to protest the actions of the boneheads currently in office, because it strikes not at them, but at the institutions and time-honored values that made America the greatest nation ever to have existed on earth.
For that reason, this truck is a fine example of American patriotism.
The only way this truck could get any more patriotic would be if it had a gun rack in the back window.
Or if it were driven by Chuck Norris.
