What Freedom Means

You wrap yourselves in our flag and call yourselves patriots…but that flag belongs to all of us…not just to you and your radicalized terrorist brethren.

And it was never meant to represent what you’ve appropriated it to symbolize.

Our flag symbolizes a free and democratic republic.

I cringe now whenever I see our flag because I know that most likely those that fly it align themselves with the republican treasonous cult that attempted to over throw our democracy.

Patriots of our democracy would not support murderous violence against their fellow citizens, elected officials and their own government because they lost an election.

We didn’t!  That’s democracy!

You don’t commit insurrection just because you didn’t get your way. That’s what fascist bullies do!

You are not patriots; conversely you are the very definition of treasonous and terrorist and should be dealt with accordingly.

What Price Unity?

I would love to see unity but at what price?

There is no unity without accountability!

You cannot support the overthrow of our democracy while refusing to hold the person who led the insurrection accountable and expect the rest of us to just move on like nothing happened.

At this point I would rather see the radicalized portion of our society exiled to a place far away from the rest of us.

It would be entertaining to see how they fair stewing in their own hatred and fighting amongst themselves while Fox media incites and cheers them on.

Then the rest of us can move forward with maintaining a more equitable union.

If you can’t play nice in the sandbox you no longer get to play in the sandbox. You don’t get to hit the other children over the head and take their toys! That seems fair right?

There are rules! There have to be rules.

There are morally and ethically responsible ways to resolve our differences and they must be adhered to.

I cannot in good faith be unified with anyone who doesn’t respect and support the rules of our democracy.

So if the price for unity is being willing to overlook domestic terror and violence, then I will have to take a hard pass!
