Our fallen soldiers and veterans and their families should be treated with our utmost respect.
Veterans fought for and served this country… They above all else deserve to have a tremendous respect for all the citizens.
They are still useful for our country at least they can learn our youth and our corrupt politicians about the respect for our country and flag!
A Vietnam War veteran called for the Connecticut town official who knelt during the Pledge of Allegiance to resign from her post.
Calvin Bunnell appeared on “Fox & Friends” and said that standing for the pledge is held in the same regard as standing for the national anthem.
Haddam Selectman Melissa Schlag drew outrage on July 16 when she took a knee at a Board of Selectmans’ meeting in protest to President Trump.
Bunnell said he was part of a group of roughly 75 people at the meeting who were disgusted by Schlag’s actions. Once there, Bunnell yelled at Schlag, “As it says on my shirt, ‘If you don’t like this flag, I’ll help you pack your bags and get the heck out of here.’ When you kneeled and turned your back on this flag, you turned your back on half of this town.”
Interviewed on Fox News by host Ainsley Earhardt, who asked him why he did what he did, Bunnell responded:
Because to me, the flag is supposed to represent the United States, and when somebody kneels down and does not respect it, it goes along with the national anthem. You’re supposed to stand up and present yourself to that situation as well as the flag. When I first went into elementary school, it was the first thing they taught us, was respect for the flag and what it stood for. It just doesn’t stand for freedom, but it also stands for all the gentlemen, ladies in the service that have been killed in the line of duty. And when somebody kneels down in front of it, for me, it’s a very disrespectful thing because, for me, you should stand up and praise these people as well as that flag of the United States.
My family and many I know have fought and died to defend that country that flag is a symbol of by disrespecting the symbol, the Dems are disrespecting the country.
