Former Congressman Trey Gowdy hosts a hit show on Fox News.
That’s because Gowdy speaks truths the left does not want to hear.
Trey Gowdy had one message for Democrats that will leave you speechless.
Protesting the national anthem is all the rage in liberal America.
After George Floyd died, Colin Kaepernick’s taking a knee for the national anthem became a rallying cry on the left.
Athletes heading off to the Olympics to represent America are expected to protest the flag and the anthem.
Gowdy addressed these protests by comparing them to the protests in third-world countries like Cuba where demonstrators wave the American flag.
The former congressman also noted that countries like Afghanistan and Haiti beg America to send aid, police and military support to keep their countries together.
“We’ve seen images from Haiti, Cuba and Afghanistan, images of people in other countries carrying our American flag as they fight to secure their own fundamental freedoms. We see images from our own country of our flag burned or shunned. We hear countries calling for U.S. to send our police, our soldiers to help them even as there are calls here-by our own politicians-to denigrate the same institutions. We’re asked to keep peace in parts of the world that some of us can’t even find on a map, even as some police struggle to keep the peace on their very own streets,” Gowdy began.
Gowdy explained that in America, liberals instead burn the flag or kneel for the anthem because the United States is one of the few countries on earth where you are free to disrespect national symbols and protest the government.
“America is one of those rare nations where you are free to even burn your own flag. You are free to turn your back on your own flag. Even as you are vying to compete on the world stage under that same flag,” Gowdy added. “America is a country where you are not only free to call for the police and the military to be defunded but you will be protected by police and military while you call for them to be defunded. America is a rare experiment in freedom where you can criticize the very country which gave you the very freedom to criticize it in the first place.”
Gowdy explained the absurdity of the left’s position by pointing out that leftists that call for defunding the police or military still receive protection from those institutions because America is a land of freedom where loyalty to the regime does not determine how the government treats people.
“So yes, if you are an American, you are free to turn your back on the flag. You are free to burn it, you are free to walk on and disrespect it and wear it on your uniform in sporting events. You are free to call for police to be defunded even as the police protect you, your home and your place of business. You are free to call for the military to be defunded, even as the military serves and sacrifices and sometimes dies to defend your rights. You are free to do it. You are just wrong to do it,” Gowdy exclaimed.
