SHOW YOUR COLORS: TAKE AN AMERICAN FLAG TO WORK DAY, THURSDAY, APRIL 6
Sunday, April 2, 2006 | Kristinn

Posted on 04/02/2006 7:46:16 PM PDT by kristinn

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.

Can they stop the kids from wearing a T-shirt with a flag on it? Mine have some. I'm putting mine up outside this week.

Frankly, I think this issue requires a protest in Washington

I do too, del. But if we couldn't get the numbers, it wouldn't work. I'd use my last dime, fwiw.

How does one organize a protest. I have no idea. I don't have those "special" connections those folks did. Just my FRiends.

About 75% of my T-shirts have the flag, USA, or some patriotic theme to them...

Since 9/11, I buy 2-3 every summer...

I will have my 1 year old granddaughter on Thursday..I think I will go shopping and by HER a red, white and blue outfit...and a tiny flag for her to hold.

I'm the only house, south of Bandon OR,
that has Old Glory and a POW/MIA Flag flying everyday.

It's right on HWY 101 so all can see it.

I work at home.

On the days I'm at the Coast Guard base
the American Flag flies daily.

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!

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...

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.)

Thanks, I am retired but I will cruise Huntsville with my flag held high.
Monday is seniors day at our Walker County Rodeo and I will tell them and pass out the few small flags remaining from other events.
NOTE TO SELF: Buy more American Flags.

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.

Agreed. I say five, but I can think of many people off the top of my head that would go. Mainly, because I know so many folks in Atlanta that would go in a minute since it is not that far away to DC. Once you start talking airfare, hotel, trasportation, etc, it puts alot of people off. Especially when "special interest" groups are not paying the way.

I know of instances here locally, where officials have tried to clamp down on these invaders, and the feds come in and give the issue a federal juridiction. The locals are having their hands tied by Washington. And Washington needs to hear from us....in person.

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.

The problem is that when liberals have a protest rally they always have them in the middle of a liberal enclave like Washington D.C., Los Angelos or NYC. The largest part of the protestors do not have to come in from out of town. I think the only way you could possibly have a significant turn-out is if you had it in a very conservative large city. I'm not even sure there is such a place, but I'm positive that Washington D.C. is out of the question for a significantly large conservative protest.

Now I need to get something for the truck!

We just ordered magnetic flags for our vehicles online. (plus secure our border bumper stickers... extra for friends & family) We have been going into the gas stations and stores around our area asking for magnetic flags and telling them why we are looking for them. A cashier today at WalMart gave my husband one of those ribon flags with the statue of liberty on it... She went and dug it out of someplace. I am hoping this sparks the stores to re-stock.
