Skip to comments.Do not be taken in by the "Born again American," effort...it's a ruse and false flag

The "Born Again American" campaign, despite a really nice song...and most of the words to it...is a ruse and a false flag operation.
I was emailed their site by a conservative friend who had received it from someone else. I watched the video of the song. A really nice tune, and most of the lyrics...but I was taken back by one phrase in the chorus.
Instead of saying "My Country tis of Thee," they used the term, "My Country tios of Me." This bothered me and caused me to go through the site in more detail before singing the "Plkedge".
I am glad I did.
One of the links on the site, under the "Take the Next Step" section which I wnt to out of order (so note, they do not ask you to do that until after you would have signed their pledge and donated money), is to a place to "Learn more about your Freedoms."
This links takes you to one of the major sponsors and partners of the effort, an organization called, "People for the American Way,".
People of the American Way is a leftist site that is upset over Prop 8 in California, which I supported, is excited about Obama's nomination of Sotomayor, which I oppose, and it dedicated to "fighting and exposing" the right...people with traditional values like me.
So, take note and warning and educate your friends who may be taken in by this effort. It is attempting to gather donations and active support from the very people who would be opposed to its underlying initiatives.
As a result, I have let my friend and other know that I cannot and will not sign on to a delcaration since I view it as a false flag operation funded by people who hold views and promote initiatives that I am diamterically opposed to, who are gathering money from people who (many of them at least) would not be supportinve of their initiatives but are being sucked in by a really neat media campaign, and which effort represent not a return to traditional American vlaues, but a departure from them.
Born again Americans.
Now there’s a situation where ABORTION makes sense.
Thanks for the heads-up!
I got a goofy video email from a conservative friend. It was some nonsense about how a bald eagle lives 40 years and can live 30 more years if it goes up on some mountain, pulls its crooked bill out and then grows a new bill. It ended with some dumbass “change” is good message. This might have been interesting and patriotic to some but to me, it seemed like some goofy propaganda effort. There is some weird Commie crap going around the net posing as being pro-American.
PLease forward it to everyone you kn ow...I will have a site up soon...working on it now. In the mean time, forward the link to this thread.
I’ve seen hard core Christians also fall over.. they have been sold the line that the Right is cruel, violent, and anti-Christian.
Doom on em , not a dollar and I will send out the alert on my email list Jeff .........thx 4 the warning
Stay safe !!
The left does this all the time.
Born Again American would’ve turned me off to start with... WTH does that mean?
Thank you Jeff. The Left is always scamming the public.
Wow, extremely deceptive site.
You would hope that a Christian would have the discernment to see through it - being that they don’t mention God, Jesus Christ, prayer, repentance - anything of substance.
You are right - this is pure deception designed to lure in unaware people. Someone should get the news out to Hannity, Rush, the larger Christian ministries to warn people.
Anybody have those contacts?
The fact that it’s so deceptivly constructed could turn it into a hot new item.
In their video they do mention that they are Born Again Americans, that their Bible and the Bill of Rights is at their side.
Thanks Jeff. I’ve always believed charity begins at home. With very few exceptions I prefer to see tangible evidence when donating to charity.
Amen to that!
Spot on with that. They are using the BBible and Bill of Rights in their video to try and get support for efforts that try to destroy them.
This admin is starting to scare me and the First lady. We are now constantly cleaning weapons, rotating stores, range time, etc. and it is annoying. I'm too old to be back in BCT. Methinks we are not going to have the luxury of being lazy and enjoy retirement anymore.
I pray I don't live to see CWII.
yeah, we have some “social justice” Catholics that bought in years ago......from all outward appearances they are good solid Christians......but, usually, when it comes to abortion they invariably waiver.....that is when they lose me.
Never heard of these guys, their song, or this group — but thanks for the head’s up. I’m sure I’ll run across it/them before too long (so thanks for the warning).
Thanks for the heads up. I’m forwarding to several friends who believe every “christian” email they get.
