It is a symptom of the modern Left malaise that it is now fashionable to hate your country; model turned singer, Lana Del Ray has decided to BAN the flag from her videos and concert stages.
In what twisted world is this acceptable? She may not like the President, and she may hate the Republican majority Senate and House, but the flag represents all of America. It represents the soldiers who have died so she can have her freedoms, it represents the civil rights movement, and it represents the values that bind us all, regardless of our political affiliations.
By insulting the flag, she is insulting every one of us, Republican, Democrat or Independent. Wil she suddenly start respecting the flag again when a Democrat is in the White House? It is not only insulting, it is idiotic and ill thought-out.
Perhaps she is rebelling against the very people who buy her records and see her shows? So perhaps we should do our own rebellion and stop funding her?
It’s so typical of radical liberals.
They pretend to be patriotic Americans, but immediately turn on their own the moment they don’t get their way.
REAL patriots love this country no matter what, and will always work to make it better.
Grammy-nominated recording artist Lana Del Rey is not a real patriot.
Sure, she’s featured the American flag as a backdrop to many of her concerts in the past.
But because her candidate didn’t win the last presidential election, she’s now banning the Stars and Stripes.
The 32-year-old model-turned-singer told Pitchfork that she feels “uncomfortable” and “less safe” as an American living under President Trump.
As for using the American flag at her concerts:
“I definitely changed my visuals on my tour videos. I’m not going to have the American flag waving while I’m singing ‘Born to Die.’ It’s not going to happen.
“I’d rather have static.
“I feel less safe than I did when Obama was president.”
I say, if she’s going to boycott the flag, we BOYCOTT HER!
