The headline this morning put out by Reuters News Service is indicative of the slanted point of view most often expressed by those who charade as journalists:
Headline - “Trump Speech Divides Americans”.
WRONG!! Americans were already divided - divided between those who love the country while acknowledging our history, the good and the bad, and those who loathe the country, what she stands for and who find little redeeming about her.
If you find little redeeming about America and are unwilling to acknowledge history, the progress on many fronts we have made, the contributions to the world we have made and the freedoms we enjoy, often preserved by the men and women of our military, then you no doubt stand opposed to the content of Trump’s non-partisan speech and the tribute paid to our nation’s founding history and our men and women in uniform on a day set aside every year to pay tribute to our founding.
That our nation is so utterly divided is a testament to the effectiveness of our indoctrination centers - education (schools and universities) and most media, including our emerging tech giants, such as Google. I’m not talking about simple policy disagreements. I’m talking about the foundational divide that has erupted in America - a large segment of America caught up in self-flagellation to the point of self/nation-hatred. An America that has born witness to many in America devaluing free speech, a foundational principle, to the point that in many instances simply identifying as a conservative on our college campuses or in public is often viewed by many as a licensed to kick the Shiite out of you - while in our major cities, police stand down.
If Reuters wanted to point out what divides America, it’s time and effort would have been more appropriately spent on the current effort underway to destroy the historical significance of Betsy Ross and the original flag she created - an effort born out of ignorance by one who loathes America and the foundational symbol of our nation.
