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.
I would too...but, like you---unless a million DID show up...it would be ignored.
I remember the support the troops rally that kristinn had last year...and trueblackman (kevin) was there...he was an awesome speaker as well...
But, I don't remember a mention...
I was just thinking, I think it was last year..it could have been before the elections in 2004...my memory is shot!
Thanks for the post, Kristinn. It looks like a great idea, and 3 days ought to be more than enough to get the word out on e-mail lists and by word of mouth.
I have a seven-flag centerpiece from a Veteran's Day luncheon that sits on the credenza next to my desk.
There's no doubt where my loyalties lie when visitors come into my office.
Now I need to get something for the truck!
Brilliant. I will send this to everyone I know!
I am on it.
The protests you saw last week...from what I have heard, were organized by a lot of influential groups, LaRaza being one of them...
And they got the Spanish language TV stations and radio stations to promote the heck out of this...and encourage the kids to walk out of school.
I know in the Dallas/FtWorth area, something like 5 of the top 10 radio stations are Spanish stations...
We won't be heard unless we speak up!!!!!
hope it's not a repeat ping for ya!
With many cities now like a Little Tiajuana that could be a suicidal ride for you. (But I like the idea).
Hey, will there be riots and outrage if anti-Illegal Mexican cartoons are published?
Hey...what's a Mexican Fawtwa called? " A Fajitwa "
( yeah, ok, its late.)
Not to worry Jinx, I'll bring in some 4X7 and 6X11 inch US Flag window clings tomorrow.
pfffft, where you live?
You wouldn't make it half way.
I have a small U.S. Flag on my computer monitor, it's there all the time.
Okay, we have three. Who else is game? Get five people, and tell them to find five people. Email everybody you know. Pick a weekend since we all have jobs.
I am so serious, I'd put my life on it. This is for our homeland. This is for our children's future.
We would have to fill the mall from the capitol to throughout all the memorials. How about up and down the Potomac and the major arteries in DC? We would have to have enough people that the MSM could not ignore it. We need more than a million. I can think of five people right now off the top of my head that would go with no convincing necessary.
We must take our country back before it is too late.
Upland isn't Ontario. :)
I've had one on my computer for years.
Let me know how that works out for you buddy.
It would have to be the Boston Tea Party 2006. Nothing less. I have no influence, but I know alot of people up and down the east coast.
Great! April 6th. And on May 5th (Cinco de Mayo)too, right?
I too can think of five people, and you and I are two of them. I despair of gettin the numbers that we would need.
