No! I would never own, nor fly an American flag. Woodrow Wilson spoke many years ago of how the United States government had been hijacked by a shadow government. It is not possible to work together with people who continue to vote for one puppet ruler after another. I have provided here a very short list of my reasons why I would never fly such a flag. It would require at least a 3,000 word essay to cover the full scope of horror and evil that has been wrought by the scourge of Colonialism, and the history that surrounds the flag of the United States.
• The United States became "great" through murder,genocide, thievery, and the institution of slavery.
• The U.S. government has conducted heinous experiments on people of color throughout the years. One of the most infamous was the Tuskegee Syphilis Experiment; an experiment conducted between 1932 and 1972 by the U.S. Public health Service. Black men, without their knowledge, were injected with syphilis in order to study the progression of the disease. They were never told or treated for the disease. The authorities simply observed, took notes, and watched them die.
• U.S. corporations continue to pollute the earth, air, food, and water for the sake of profit.
• Thousands of U.S. military personnel have needlessly died, not for the sake of freedom, but for the sake of oil and U.S. Imperialism.
• People of all races are being brutalized and murdered by the police, yet very little is being done to limit the power of these criminals in uniform.
• My parents were Indigenous. When they purchased a 200 acre farm in the Midwest during the 1950's white racists sought to drive them off their land with violence and intimidation. The authorities would not help them. They had to buy a rifle and a shotgun for protection. They actually engaged in several firefights with the racists until the cowardly Americans finally backed down.
• I am a Vietnam Era Veteran, and served six years. The government reneged on it's promise of lifetime dental care for veterans. That was part of the deal when I signed up. But comprehensive dental care for all veterans was ended shortly after the end of Operation Desert Storm in 1991. I take great offense when ignorant people say, "Thank You for your service!" If the American people really cared about veterans they would spend money on dental care instead of bombs. There wouldn't be one homeless veteran living in the United States. It's nothing but lip service.
