Source: WE WILL TAKE THIS COUNTRY BACK!
Oops…I might be a racist because I wrote the lettering, “Dawn’s Early Light” in white! Did you know cotton is now considered to be racist; those of us who are boycotting the NFL are being called, “racists,” those of use who voted for Trump are definitely racists and the list goes on an on.
Since even cotton is now so darn offensive, we might as well all strip down and just go naked,but we would be racist for the color of our skin! For the love of God, when does this crap stop! So, we are racist because we are boycotting those who disrespect the American flag and all it stands for. We are racists because we respect our Military and those who fought and died to keep us free. NFL players take a knee overseas, but stand for another foreign country’s anthem, KNOWING it will cause an American outrage; KNOWING it will cause America to be shamed. If President Trump told you not to jump off a cliff, would you do it just because he said not to? So, you are taking a knee because the President of the United States is doing precisely what a real President is supposed to do. He is standing up for the respect of the flag, and yet you call him a racist and white supremacy. You take a knee because he told you to stand. There again, if he told you not to jump off a cliff, would you jump, just to prove you don’t have to do what the President of the United States says you should do? Basically, it is the same principal. You are in rebellion of the elected official’s statements. I agree wholeheardedly, you should be fired for taking a knee during the National Anthem. Alejandro, tell me, in what world is it okay for you to have to apologize for respecting our American Flag? You wimped out. You chose to do the right thing and then, you chose to rescind it. Why? Because you say, “You threw your team under the bus.” You, an American Military Vet. Are you freaking kidding me! Where is your backbone…?
Where is the integrity of this country? I will tell you where it is. It is in every pissed off, jersey burning, NFL boycotting American, who refuses to stand for players who refuse to stand for our National Anthem. We will take this country back. We will help President Trump make it great again!!!
As a coach myself, I find it very disturbing that other coaches allow their players to kneel during our National Anthem. The NFL players know exactly what they are doing. Yet, little eight year old children, not so much. What they needed was for that coach to be a role model and to stand up and do the right thing. To help shape the innocent minds for future lawlessness is incredibly dangerous.
“If anyone causes one of these little ones–those who believe in me–to stumble, it would be better for them if a large millstone were hung around their neck and they were thrown into the sea.” Mark 9:42
I cannot even wrap my thoughts around what is happening in this country. General Robert E. Lee is a target for hate and racism. But seriously, what good is it doing? His statues were peacefully standing for a 100 years and due to the accusations, racism and hate are once again the focus of some of the American people. But not because of General Lee, but because of those doing the accusing. Which I find so ironic that they are so blind to the fact of their own individual behavior. It is all just an excuse to run wild and to live above the law. Then, when businesses lose revenue because those of us who refuse to spend another dollar in these cities, they will have something else to whine and complain about.
What I find so sad is the lack of moral respect for both God and country! Which is exactly what it all comes down to. Even some Christians are ranting against the President of the United States and marching against him. God will most assuredly judge them first. You might not like the President. But he is an elected official and “promotion comes from the Lord.” They want to blame the Russians and not look to the real Source, which is Almighty God. So, when (especially) Christians are speaking against the President, it is God they are actually speaking against. “It is a fearful thing to fall in to the hands of the Living God!”
When little children and NFL players are kneeling during the National Anthem; when another coach is fired for kneeling at the 50 yard line; when peaceful statues that hadn’t bothered anyone in a 100 years start to be torn down to appease the lefts or whatever hate group happens to be offended at the time, why be so worried about North Korea? We are already destroying this country by the hands of its own people. I haven’t seen those celebrities, who said they would leave the country if Trump was elected actually leave. So, stop crying wolf and shut the hell up! If you won’t be part of the solution, stop being part of the problem!
Florida…I hope those who can evacute will. I know many cannot and do not have the means to leave. Some people don’t have any place to go or the money to do so. Jose is right behind Irma. Still you are in my thoughts and prayers.
My heart is broken over this country. But, I know there is beauty in the ashes. What we saw in Texas, we will see in Florida. However, three months after Charleston removed the Confederate Battle Flag, it was hit by the outer bands of Joaquin with record breaking flooding and record breaking rainfall. As my friend Tony stated, we have removed statues from Christian men, coincedence or hint that two major (record breaking) hurricanes have hit Florida, Texas and Louisana. These statues were not kindly removed either. They were ripped off their foundations, desecrated, vandalized, spit on and kicked. Then, they were thrown on top of each other in locked yards in disgrace. Confederate memorial plaques were removed from some cemeteries, a cemetery for god sake! Schools with Confederate names are being renamed as well.
If you want to talk slavery, let’s talk. Are you aware that in July of 2008, Congress officially apologized for slavery and Jim Crow? The Government was doing what was morally right and for a time being, this country for the most part, lived in peace. The ills and mistakes of the past (in both the North and the South) were healing. The shed blood on both sides was resting peacefully, though never to be forgotten.
Then in 2015, South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley ordered the removal of the Confederate Battle Flag from the Statehouse. This act, sent this country into a downward spiral as it paved the way for others to do the same. It opened up the wounds of the past by blaming the Confederate Battle Flag for the deaths of 9 Blacks in a church. They did not blame the evil individual, but the flag. Apparently, Confederate monuments and flags have special powers and can make people do bad stuff. Why? Because they are labeled racist and they cause hate.
I find this incredibly sad. We are not blaming people for their bad behavior. We are blaming the past that was apologized for by the Federal Government. We are digging up old hurts, old sufferings to please present day people, who have zero understanding of our Nation’s History. We are removing heritages from our Confederate history and destroying monuments to great (Christian) men. These men loved God especially Lee and Jackson. We have a Christian College, banning a Christian student, for honoring a Christian General Lee.
Oh then, these same people want to blame GOD because HE is the one sending these massive record breaking hurricanes. Congratulations America, you are breaking records all over the place and this is just the beginning. You might want to put those monuments, flags and plaques back and let the past and the dead rest in peace once more.
Baltimore, you will not be immune to this; California; and other places who have also desecrated the land with ignorance! God isn’t the one doing the destroying. You started it and you have given Satan place to come in even stronger. As I previously stated, “Congratulations America. You are breaking records.”

How did we as a country fall so far, when it takes catastrophic damage to pull us together and to unite as a country? It isn’t those of us who are trying to see this country’s history preserved that has opened up the old wounds of the past. But rather, those who are and who have destroyed the monuments and plaques of the previous centuries. To say, “We want to preserve history,” is not the same as saying, “We want to preserve slavery.” It is idiotic to even compare the two. Because quite frankly, there is no comparison.
Yet, look what is happening in this country. Texas has been devestated by a Catagory 4 hurricane, with unprecedented flooding, tornados and in other parts of the country they are now reporting earthquakes. To think we can just fill this country with hate and to completely ignore the bylaws of Almighty God is suicidal. This country is dying a slow, and disasterous death. He said, “Not to remove the ancient landmarks which your fathers have set.” Like it or not, history is not to be uprooted. It is not to be destroyed willingly, at the hands of humans. It leaves a curse in its wake. Which the majority of those causing the damage do not understand.
Do I think it is a coincidence that there is catastrophic damage going on in this country, right on the coat-tails of what has been happening? No! I do not. I think, however, it is just the beginning. Yet, God is merciful. The Bible says, “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and heal their land.” It is time we get on our face before God and repent for all of the damage that is being done to this great land. We need to unite, not accuse. We need to realize that racism and hate are deadly tools of Satan that can kill, steal and destroy. Please remember who are you, you are an American. Whether you have slaves as ancestors or not, you – yourself are not and never will be a slave. Whether or not you have had Confederate blood in you, these great men fought and died for what they believed in. To remove their heritage is heartless. The old wounds of the past have been reopened and not by those trying to preserve history. But by those who are trying to erase it. I must add, who are also doing a damn good job of it.
Unless this country comes back together and unites, I am afraid we are only seeing, (as previous stated) the beginning of the catastrophic damages to come. Is this what it has to get to, in order for people to learn to love each other again? With all my heart, I hope not!
