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.
Patriotic Thursday Ping!
Great idea. The kids should bring them to school as well.
Question: Why Thursday, any significance??
I will do
It gives folks enough time to get the word out and to prepare. Something had to be done this week and this looks like it might do the job.
Thanks. Hopefully they won't be confiscated by school administrators at the school door.
Sleuth, did you add the Snow Show ping list so I don't repeat it?
I wonder what would happen if I dragged a tattered Mexican flag behind my car on the ground.
Bump. Everyone needs to send out emails and put this on blogs!
better to keep it positive and take the high road.
I don't have anyone's ping list...I just went off the top o' me head.
I for sure think the Tony Snow list should be pinged.
Dittos to comment #18.
I have had a small (3" by 5") flag on a staff displayed on my cubicle for years.
And you haven't been hauled into human resources over that yet?
Okay. I don't use it much, but I think this will be alright. Tony Snow ping list for your kind consideration.
Actually, that's a great idea.
Thanks for pinging your ping lists!
No problem....just didn't want to ignore some special date or something.
Yes, you are right...something has to be done.
Count me in.
It will go well with my project from this past weekend. I cut down my rusting old 30 foot flagpole in my front yard.
I ground off all the rust, gave it 2 coats of primer and 2 coats of high gloss white enamel...put on all new brass fittings and a shiny new polished brass ball topper and erected it on a new base.
Finished off with a brand new 4 x 6 Old Glory...it looks damned nice.
If you did that doug...we MIGHT be doing a prayer thread for your recovery from getting yourself beat up...
Please don't try that!
Um, I thot Thursday was Queers-day. (Anyone remember that?)
Emails sent and message posted.
That's a beautiful picture.
That must be a great sight to behold!
I might just snap an 'artsy' type if pic and post it.
I'm proud to say I wear an American flag to work everyday. It's mandatory where I work. And my work has an official language policy. English will be spoken unless it is necessary to carry out a specific duty.
Proud to be an American.
Hi Bah! Thanks for the ping. Hope you and yours came through those storms okay.
Since my office is in my home, I wouldn't make much impact. I read somewhere, probably on FR, that April 19 was a day to turn on car headlights in support of immigration enforcement.
Frankly, I think this issue requires a protest in Washington. The MSM was boasting that the LA protest last week was so impressive in size and strength. If a counter protest was organized, the LA protest would pale, and I believe the point would be made to these ELECTED officials.
I'm game and I would be there.
Done. It'll just have to wait until after sun up tomorrow.
You could be right...some were saying that the size and number of the protests definitely did have an impact on the Senators in Washington..
Unfortunately, the impact affected the Senators just the opposite as it did most Americans.
I was so disgusted by the flying and waving of Mexican flags, and the chants of VIVA MEXICO!
I already have a small one stuck in the top edge of my cubicle, rising above the spine of the cubes for excellent visibility.
Oh, and there's another one on the driver's side rear quarter window on my car.
Do those count?
Sure. But the more people hand carry the flag in public the greater the impact.
Excellent. Thank you!
"I live in a small farm town in Nelson County, Virginia, and will retire from the Virginia Army National Guard in April 2006, after 22 years. I have spent almost one half of my adult life preparing myself and my soldiers for a time, such as now, that our country might successfully face our enemies, foreign and domestic.
Looking at your webpage this morning and seeing the pictures of the high school students raising a Mexican national flag over an upside down American flag saddened me terribly, insofar as there are American soldiers, Marines, sailors, and airmen currently putting their lives in danger in order to provide these "citizens" the comfort of knowing that their protests will not result in being lined up against a wall and executed for their behavior, as they might in other countries around the world.
What would be interesting to know is if these young men and women are enjoying their educations on the back of the American taxpayer at a public school, while denigrating the country that provides these benefits to them, and so blatantly desecrating the flag that serves as a beacon to draw them to America in the first place."
