Leftist Loses It Over "Disturbing" Display Of Patriotism
Dems are trying to demonize patriotism. They are doing their best to remove anything remotely patriotic from schools. Some students now sit during the pledge of allegiance. But it's not just in schools, the national anthem is under attack for being played at sporting events. So it makes sense that leftist Mara Gay from the NYT would get triggered by American flags. She claimed America needs to stop associating itself with whiteness.
Gay said as much during an appearance on "Morning Joe."
"The reality is here that we have a large percentage of the American population — I don’t know how big it is, but we have tens of millions of Trump voters, who continue to believe that their rights as citizens are under threat by simple virtue of having to share the democracy with others," Gay said responding to MSNBC host Mika Brzezinski's call for an investigation into the January 6th raid.
"I think that as long as they see Americanness as the same as one with Whiteness, this is going to continue. We have to figure out how to get every American a place at the table in this Democracy but how to separate Americanness, America from Whiteness. Until we can confront that and talk about that it's really going to continue."
"I was on Long Island this weekend visiting a really dear friend, and I was really disturbed. I saw, you know, dozens and dozens of pickup trucks with explicatives [sic] against Joe Biden on the back of them, Trump flags, and in some cases just dozens of American flags, which is also just disturbing because essentially the message was clear. This is my country. This is not your country. I own this," Gay said.
"That is the real concern. Because, you know, the Trump voters who are not going to get onboard with democracy, they’re a minority. You can marginalize them, long-term. But if we don’t take the threat seriously, then I think we’re all in really bad shape," she said.

America is still about 60% white. It is ridiculous to suggest that we need to take the "whiteness" out of America. America is comprised of numerous cultures and people. America is diverse, there is blackness, Latino-ness and every other race has contributed to who we are to today. Gay here is just pushing more of the Leftist divisive propaganda. We need to stop focusing on race and these other labels that Leftists use to divide us.
Gay also needs to recognize that we all have the freedom of speech. I know liberals struggle with this concept, but we are allowed to say anything, as long as we don't incite violence and hate speech, which is debatable in this safe space era. And backing Trump is not a whiteness thing, it's a what's best for America thing.
