I was watching a film the other day. It was a WWII film: The Story of G.I. Joe, (Ernie Pyle’s Story of G.I. Joe) depicting, (as many films have), the firsthand and up close
atrocities of war and the Nazi regime.
It occurred to me, as I was watching: What of the Americans that belong to the Neo Nazi Party, the KKK and other assorted hate groups that idolize the Nazi regime? Do they watch these films and root for the Reich and not American, or allied, soldiers laying down their lives for our freedom?
How does any member of one of these groups call him/herself an American, or serve this country and its’ flag ….or honor Veterans in any fashion?
We fought against tyranny… in Germany, Korea and Vietnam. The “cold war” and threatened nuclear war with Russia has been ongoing since, and before, the Bay of Pigs. There were many political gains made by these wars, which doesn’t diminish the actual sacrifice by our soldiers, or the fact that our young men and women died, or were wounded, defending our country’s stances – right or wrong. It does depict, however, the greed – at any cost – of war.
can’t, in my wildest dreams, imagine a soldier who liberated a Nazi death camp,
and in seeing, firsthand, the horrors there say “They deserved this…..they were
Jews.” I believe those images stayed
with them the rest of their days. I
would guarantee that fact. We now have “camps”
springing up all over this country for “illegal” immigrants, and the
propagandist’s state blatantly that “They deserve this…they’re just immigrants.”
We now have an administration that upholds Neo Nazi’s, the KKK, N. Korea, Russia and prison camps for children and “illegals”.
Let that sink in as you rest your hand on your heart to honor the Flag, and this country, on this 4th of July. Who do you root for? What do you stand for? Who, or what, do you honor?
“I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States and to the Republic for which it stands, one nation, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”
