Just because America was built by immigrants doesn't mean it isn't being plundered by them. America was built by PATRIOTS. I love this country but nowhere near worthy of that title.

I'm so angry at the Democrats who have no idea what it means to be American.

God bless America.

America was mainly built and populated with white european immigrants. This opening up to the rest of the world specifically third worlders with no education or love of our culture didn't happen until the 60's when the democrats figured out they can ship in votes and eventually replace us.

That stupid poem at the base of the Statue of Liberty though

SquiggyMcPepe 4 points ago

That poem was written by the french about europeans because at that time we were taking in so many trying to escape the endless horrors of unending war and hardships because we were seen as a beacon of hope in a mad mad world. Welp the madness finally creeped into our nation too and we have to purge it. The creators of that statue would be shocked to see how their message was perverted and turned into a method to breed us out of existence or at least down to minority status in our own country.

Its about culture. It is the most important resource we have and it will be permanently destroyed if we don't stand up to the liberal horseshit.

SquiggyMcPepe 4 points ago

The apple pie and baseball and take care of your gramps and grams culture is still there all across the nation in most non big city D controlled areas. The problem is that the media in all its forms no longer promotes that culture and actively tries to destroy it by focusing on every divisive issue they can hoist up no matter how inconsequential. This happened because american six billionaires with globalist views along with many rich foreigners now own all our media outlets and our corrupt leadership allowed it.

It's crazy what they did. I volunteered to throw myself into whatever needed to be done from 03' to 07' USMC. I'm not so sure now that I have people that depend on me. Most of these guys left family and friends to fight. It's a CRAZY sacrifice.

Haha I was referring to western Canada splitting off (Yukon, BC, AB, Sask and Manitoba) and either forming a new country or being absorbed by the US but as far as your comment goes I’m right there with you on that as well

Alberta51stState 2 points ago

Wouldn't that be amazing? I mean, Quebec almost did it back in the day. Wexit would be an interesting chapter in the next generation's history books for sure.

In the year 2022 there emerged Western Canada - the richest and hardest working country in the world, next to the U.S.A. A melting pot of cultures and beliefs all bound by the idea that Eastern Canada can go f*ck itself.

CQVFEFE 5 points ago

Yeah buddy

We come from some stubborn stock

It seems the more the left emulates the British

The more the right emulates the colonial patriots who founded a nation on an idea: that humans are born to be free. Free to think, act, worship, and speak as they see fit, and to have that freedom protected.

America will never fully die because the yearning in all people's souls to be free never will. This is why they want to breed humans for food and energy and keep them enslaved from birth, mindless drones serving the Almighty State that democrats so fervently worship.

The thing that sets the American Christian apart is that he will die on his feet before he will live on his knees.

3
CQVFEFE 3 points ago

That sets me apart too, and I'm a member of no organized religion

IMHO the impulse to be free to make our own choices is universally implanted in human DNA from before birth. From the moment of conception we spend nine months plotting our escape ;)

PocketTurd 17 points ago

I would die for that flag. I suspect you would too, along with every other Pede reading this. We are still the land of the free and the home of the brave. Don’t worry about all the Berniebros and soyboys, they don’t have have the conviction of God and Country on their side. How many of them would die for their misguided cause? Have faith in your fellow American.

12
gabwinone 12 points ago

You are right! They would certainly KILL to get their way, and that's what I've been focusing on and worried about.

But, most importantly...I doubt any of them are willing to DIE for their so-called "convictions"!

I never really looked at it that way.

When the shit comes down, they don't have a chance!

Thank you for that!

I would die for the flag because I couldn't live the rest of my life knowing I should have but didn't. The gnawing mental torture would be far worse than anything the commies or islamonazis could do to me.

In that moment patriots are sort of all American William Wallaces.

CQVFEFE 4 points ago (edited)

This is the sort of education and, yes, pro-American propaganda children need from kindergarten through high school.

Then maybe more of them would stand up to their sniveling commie coward professors in college. Or not even waste the enormous amount of time, money, and energy to even go to fucking college, which nowadays is basically a left-wing programming high school with ashtrays.

College was invented as a way to ensure that landed gentry and other persons of unfathomable inherited weatlh would grow up to become well-rounded, educated members of society—not as a means to prepare broke people to go sell their time and bodies for the smallest amount of money corporations can get away with paying them.

Mind you, I'm a pro-market libertarian capitalist all the way, but also a realist and pragmatist. If you're going to sell your body movements and time, maybe a better route than four years of communist indoctrination for $100k+ would be a year or less at a trade school. That way you can come out with a valuable skill that might translate into enough money to raise a family without prostituting your wife and the mother of your children to go take orders from some other man for eight hours every day, giving HIM the best, most energetic hours of her daily life, bringing home an exhausted, irritable shell of herself to her husband and children.

No, I'm not saying no women should have jobs or that all jobs are like that, don't jump down my esophagus. For a large percentage of the population, though, this is exactly what life is like.

Just sayin

Raised in Baltimore. Cried during this video.

I noted three errors, here. Two are nit-picky, the other is historically signficant.

It is/was Fort McHenry, not Ft. Henry. (Worth a tourist stop, btw)

The ships were not on the ocean. They had sailed up the Chesapeake Bay and were entering Baltimore's outer harbor. (Ft. McHenry protected the inner harbor.)

The "colonies" were not engaged in a fight with Great Britain. The young "United States of America" was engaged in what became known as the War of 1812. *Immediately prior to this battle, Brits had torched Washington, DC.

I'm Australian, and I fucking love this stuff and this community that actually holds a love for one's nation as a value to treasure.

Yesterday was ANZAC Day, which has become Australia's most revered national holiday, since Australia Day (which is supposed to celebrated the First Fleet arriving in 1778 and the establishment of our not-yet-legally-recognized nation -- the equivalent of the Mayflower's arrival) has become mired in controversy with people wanting to either change the date or change the name to 'Invasion Day'. Yet year after year, we have a media and a populace that increasingly says that remembering the sacrifices of our veterans is naught but racism. The idea is that to love one's nation and it's history is a terrible and outdated thing that must be done away with.

It seems to me that America is also facing the same self-loathing, anti-nationalist forces. But at least you have this place, and this movement, to oppose it. Bless you, your rich history, your love for it, and your cause.

Had a chance to visit Aussieland 10 years ago. Made my way from Cairns, through Brisbane and Byron Bay and then down to Sydney after spending a few months volunteering at an educational center in the rainforest on the border of NSW.

You have an amazingly beautiful country and people. Some of the friendliest and funniest I've met. Talking shit with you guys is next level fun. I saw a lot of Americans not being able to handle the banter and getting butthurt about it, which was even funnier.

You might be jaded about some of your citizens but for every hippie I met in Byron Bay (actual LEGIT hippies that walk the walk) I met the same amount of Aussie redneck patriots. Though to be fair, even they seemed to lean more towards environmental causes than 90% of Americans lol.

Keep up the fight, we all come from similar stock.

Nice story, and more inspirative than the historical fact that British ships had very low accuracy, as they could not get near, and ran out of ammo.

However, Washington's sentiment is great.

It's a great story, it's not close to true, but it's a great story. I think at most 4 people were killed, none of the British cannon had the range to hit the fort so they used rockets which were hideously inaccurate. The guns at the Fort were also out ranged but the Brits didn't get close because A) coastal forts are very good at hitting ships B) there was a long chain of sunken ships the Brits were afraid they would hit.

I never heard this before. That’s a crazy story that we were so willing to die for what we take for granted today.

I also learned something else concerning that Psalm. Blessed is the nation who’s God is the Lord. What does that mean? Is your God your country? Is it your family or your iPhone? Where do you put your trust and hope? What is number one in your life? If we repent and return to the Lord, he will heal us. It is a wonderful thing to believe, but we must also follow.
