Take an American Flag to Work Day, Thursday, April 6, 2006.
All patriotic Americans who have been concerned (to put it mildly) about the predominance of flags of foreign nations at the recent pro-illegal alien marches and the desecration of the American flag by supporters of illegal aliens are being asked to participate in a demonstration of patriotism and American sovereignty by taking an American flag with them to work, school or anywhere this Thursday, April 6.
How it works is simple: Proudly carry an American flag with you wherever you are in public. Small parade style flags on sticks would work best for those who commute by bus or subway and those who walk to work. Carry it around with you when you go out for lunch and when you leave work.
Wear red, white and blue patriotic attire. Fly the American flag at your home. Fly an American flag from your car antenna. Tape an American flag in your car window. The goal is to have Old Glory be given the prominence it deserves and to remind everyone--politicians, illegal aliens and their enablers--that the American flag comes first in this country.
Folks have been clamoring for a march to respond to the pro-illegal alien marches. This is a way to do that without having to take time off from work and family responsibilities and still take a stand in public.
John McCain has been touting the pro-illegal alien marches as being effective in influencing polticians in Washington. Now's your chance to exercise your influence.
Please pass this message along to everyone you know and every patriotic blogger you can think of. Contact any patriotic group you belong to. Contact your local media and talk radio shows. We don't have George Soros to bankroll a publicity campaign. We just have us. Stand up for America and Old Glory this Thursday.
Everybody should begin emailing everybody they can ask them to pass it on too.
Beautiful! Good job.
Found out that along with my folded flags in my closet (that don't have poles), I also have a smaller one that can be easily carried. After we sing and say the pledge we are going to put it in front of our house.
What a great idea! I just C&P'd your message into an e-mail to a whole bunch of family members and friends.
Thanks, kristinn! You can also fly the flag on your computer. Go to: www.deskflag.com and you can download a waving flag onto your computer. I have had one on my desktop since 9/11.
Frankly, I think this issue requires a protest in Washington.
I agree. And kristinn is just the man to get the party going. How about it, kristinn?
I've sent the notice to everyone in my address book as well as Dennis Prager and Laura Ingraham, hoping they may make a mention of it. This is a great idea, Kristinn. I have never considered myself a person to want to go out there and "make a statement" but the line, "I'm mad as hell...and I'm not gonna take it anymore!" comes to mind!
Love that truck's message!!
One for your ping list
I'm putting mine up outside this week.
Since 9/11, we fly our flag nearly every day.
We must take our country back before it is too late.
I'm in. Please ping me if someone gets the demonstration rolling.
Great! April 6th. And on May 5th (Cinco de Mayo)too, right?
And Washington needs to hear from us....in person.
We need to get talk radio involved in mobilizing the patriots. The illegals had radio and tv stations pushing their march.
Army Day is on April 6th!
Army Day can be traced back to a little-known Defense Test Day, which was observed only twice: once in 1924 and once in 1925. On April 4, 1936, President Roosevelt issued a proclamation that Army Day be recognized by Congress as April 6 and observed nationwide. On March 1, 1937, Congress passed Resolution #5-75 that officially recognized Army Day. Army Day is observed nationally on April 6.
Saw it on my VFW calender this morning!
Yes - I remember it well - here in Detroit, if you wore purple on Thursday - you were queer.
Other people tell me it was green where they lived.
PERFECT!!! ADDED INCENTIVE!!!
Thanks for letting me know.
Besides the American flag on my car, I carry an American flag tote bag that I carry around. I picked it up in my local grocery store.
Too cool! I got an email this morning asking me to show my colors.
My boy is at school today, wearing red, white & blue....His idea, his choice.
He's now gonna be spreading the word on THIS!
WHOO HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO BRAD!
Thanks. Very nice. It is my wallpaper, now, also.
Why wait until Thursday?
Why wait until Thursday INDEED BTTT!!!!
Have had an American flag on my desk at work for years. But it is nice to know more people will be joining me. :)
Support our Minutemen Patriots!
Be Ever Vigilant!
Support our Minutemen Patriots!
Be Ever Vigilant!
You'd probably be Reginald Dennied at the first red light, and the American Snivel Liberties Union would be pushing for hate crimes prosecution.
Probably get charged with some kind of hate crime.
Those flags were replaced by those colorful huge sticker's, but of many types, support our troops was first
Ran to the dollar store at lunchtime and stocked up on mini flags and flag "toothpicks". Plan to hand them out on Thursday. (While I wear my Scots tartan, since it's also Tartan Day. And Army day. Great combination!)
I am a little bit more liberal on the illegal immigration issue than many freepers but when they start hoisting another nations flag over or replacing our national flag with theres, no matter there nationality, I will never stand by and let that happen.
You are correct and thank you for the ping!
Thanks for the reminder.
And, thanks for the ping.
And will ping to our contacts outside of FR
Alrighty! Great idea.
I have had one on my apartment door for years.Will wear something festive on Thursday.
You work in a restaurant....are there any Mexican employees that might not come to work because of the protests??
Also, how would the management of your restaurant like it if you maybe could decorate the restaurant with some flags and stuff on Thursday?
Well we have a huge honking American Flag flying from our Flag pole so I don't think they will object. We have only a couple of Mexican kids working at our restaurant and they speak English with an American accent so they were raised here I am preety sure.
Thanks Red. How about it Kristinn? We could have state chapters organize busloads? I don't believe we have a state chapter here in Alabama, but I know GA and FL Freepers that could get it going in their states. I will post on my state forum and see what we can get. And don't forget, as much as we are at odds with the democrats, I do know several not so liberal ones in my state that would support a protest. Who knows? We might actually get them to see the light.
Your help is requested.
Big military town in the center of the country.
Not so centralized would be Huntsville, AL.
Great idea! I've already got mine in my car! It's been there since 9-11. :o)
Not anywhere that I've found but they make the bumpersticker paper so you can print them on you computer. Or you can have a local printer make a run and then sell em.
I Pledge Allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the Republic for which it stands,
Hit this thread and did the email send out before I even read the first page comments. :)
It's nice to be appreiciated. Say Howdee to [Mrs.] T for me.
What a coincidence; April 6 is also my birthday.
Alright! thanks for the ping.
I don't work, so I'll just drive/walk around town that day with a flag.
