July 4 weekend. The mainstream media decided to try and sell anti-Americanism? The mainstream media paid American talk about that more today live from Washington DC line your questions right now.
Call 1-800-684-3110 and now your host to secular hope you all had a great July 4 holiday time with your friends, your family again. I gathered gather. I know a lot of us were given large gatherings and be able celebrate America's independence together with her friends with her family but not so for the mainstream media who decided on your holiday weekend to throw out all the different editorials and op-ed's about how well this really isn't Independence Day for all Americans and we really all Americans should celebrate the founding of our country in the declaration of our independence.
The New York Times that writing that the for a Fourth of July symbol of unity type of the American flag that may no longer unite today, flying the American flag for the back of a pickup truck or on your you know your house is increasingly seen as a clue, albeit imperfect one to a person's political affiliation in a deeply divided nation that was New York Times and the Washington Post. Remember the Bicentennial that was 19 set 76, while the 250th anniversary, America's coming up on July 4, 2026, not far away. It says I remember the Bicentennial celebrating might be even harder for America's 250th birthday me that is not just talking about issues facing our country and problems. We have to deal with as a country that is questioning whether or not in five years will even be celebrating our founding of our country look this gets to an issue of where the view of Americans.
We used to have this view that this was the land of freedom. This was the land of liberty.
This was the land of opportunity and yes there were a lot of flaws in because were human beings and a lot of mistakes were made in that regard, and you could go through those mistakes but to deny the fact that this is a land of hope and Linda Freeman that the Declaration of Independence, while all not perfect the Constitution not perfect, but considering this was, I believe the best hope for governance. On the face of the earth and to now be little that as they're trying to do.
I think Harry sends a very dangerous message to our kids. This is all part of this. Educating our kids that America is not, you know, you know, America first is not a good thing America is it not unique nation.
We talk about America as this in a big shining beacon on the hill that is not the view of the mainstream media. The mainstream media does not view it that way. So just so you understand folks and they showed it in full bloom this weekend. Harry, you're absolutely correct. This is a movement that has taken a fair amount of time to reach fruition, but we should keep in mind that this movement has been ongoing in a subterranean manner in elite universities for the last 40 to 50 years. It is grounded largely in German philosophers German philosophers who believe that any evidence of power or illustration of allegiance, for instance, to a nation constitute evidence of oppression and it should be destroyed. So at the end of the day that's what's going on right now.
We took an oath to defend the Constitution of the United States. I guess you don't do that they'll do that when I took an oath to defend the Constitution of the United States and I became an officer of the court and mailed him a lawyer right and I and I intend to maintain that oath and to maintain the place that I took that this is the greatest country that has ever been created by mankind, and I'm proud of it.
MPR did want to be upset by the Washington Post and New York Times.
They tweeted out the original Declaration of Independence drifted as a quote document with laws and deeply engraved hypocrisies. They chose remember America's Independence Day weekend. Our celebration of our country the whole world knows they see the fireworks to see how we celebrate as the weekend to place these pieces to attack American is not by accident. They decide on July 4 week in let's let's open up on the American people and the American experience.
The American Center for Law and Justice were engaged in critical issues at home and abroad.
Whether it's defending religious freedom. Protecting those who face uncovering corruption in the Washington bureaucracy and fighting to protect life in the courts and in Congress.

Give a gift today online okay only when a society can agree that the most vulnerable invoice.
Is there any hope for that culture to survive. And that's exactly what you are saying when you stand with the American Center for Law and Justice, defendant the right to life, we've created a free powerful publication offering a panoramic view of the ACLJ's battle for the unborn Gold mission will show you how you are personally publication includes a look at all major ACLJ pro-life cases were fighting for the rights of pro-life activist ramifications 40 years later Planned Parenthood's role in the worship ministry and what Obama care means to the prone life in many ways your membership in the ACLJ is empowering the right question free copy of mission in life today online/100 684 31 two that's 164 30 would and members of Congress started jumping into this as well. Member of the squad I Congresswoman Cory Bush wrote when they say that the jewel Fourth of July's about American freedom.
Remember this freedom that were there referring to is for white people. The land is stolen land. Black people still aren't free as from a member of Congress and this is again commenting on these articles. The articles teed up that up top critics of America like the squad members to then say That the New York Times backing me up at the Washington Post back a minute MPR back to me so I can put out by my tweet attacking America on July 4, which usually would get you boards regardless of whatever political party were run out of your political party right, but not anymore. But here's what's up Bethany but that comment from Mike, that's this look at the Constitution United States and the Bill of Rights. Look at the way in which was a perfect document because were flawed human beings we have sleeping United States yes was that wrong. Absolutely. But you know what ended slavery besides the Emancipation Proclamation of course Abe Lincoln, but then the, the equality movement was relying on the equal protection clause of the United States Constitution. That is the basis upon which Thurgood Marshall, the NAACP legal defense fund due process clause equal protection clause of what that U.S. Constitution that we swore as lawyers to affirm and uphold.
And as the Thurgood Marshall later became just the sprinkler nice states of the same document that there now thing is so horrible was actually the basis for creating these rights under that Constitution. Harry, I think that is true. I also think that it's very very imperative to keep in mom that it's the elites who want to destroy the United States. It's the elites that this like the individuals who live in what might be called flyover country and so any demonstration of allegiance to the flag to the Constitution.
They are prepared to dismiss. We also believe in the notion of what might be called original sin and for many of the liberals.
Many of the elites.
The originals slant sand sorry is slavery, but it's also important to keep in mind that there is more slavery in the world today than there ever was during the ascendancy of slavery in the United States. And so if you look at the 1619 project which was started by one of the editors at the New York Times.
She is now a tenured professor at the University of North Carolina without any real in my opinion, academic credentials, why because the elites at that particular university.
They want to elevate an individual who wants to stick her finger in the of the United States and its funding and yet at the same time these individuals these elites. They refused to condemn the slavery that is really going on in China. They refused to condemn the slavery. For instance, that continues in Africa. So at the end of the day. We have a leftist group of individuals who are bound and determined ultimately to destroy the United States. They want a new framing a new constitution and a new Bill of Rights implicit what it does is encourages those politicians who like to speak out against America meet at your this that Maxine Waters which they tell their constituents godly African-American constituents are Maxine Waters don't celebrate this day don't don't don't celebrate America for this what you're July 4 and so the Declaration of Independence is all that are created equal equal to what what made only white man is it something that they wrote this in 1776, when African Americans were enslaved.
They were thinking about us than what were thinking about us now. Again, I think it misses that point that these founding documents declaration if it laid the framework for the civil rights movement. It it it was not perfect. That's no one ever says that no one is taught that no one is ever been taught.
America is 100% perfect. I don't think anybody doesn't matter where you grew up you learn about slavery word learned about how the raw exhibit declaring all of it equal but not even women were not even equal. At that point. So what did that mean an end, but the constitutional process is used those amendments you could use the Constitution to ultimately seek your own rights and injustice for everyone it something you said which is the constant motion is the framework upon which equality has been built in our system of government was say that again the Constitution is the framework. It's the foundation of which are liberties and freedoms and equality came to exist in the United States a perfect union. No, we strive to be a more perfect union, but the idea that the Constitution should not be celebrated in a declaration of independence not being celebrated misses the entire point because can ask a question to all these critics of the United States.
What country would you rather live in than the United States of America today what country would you rather live in than the United States of America today and you think they forget the foundation of the Constitution and the direct Declaration of Independence, or upon which these rights and privileges are built with that's exactly right in the you have to build upon a document in an ideal and a concept. These ideas were framed by the framers and the founders of the Constitution were based upon the enlightenment that existed in Europe that came over here and they were based upon people who, yes, they were imperfect human beings.
Yes, slavery was despicable and is today despicable wherever it exists in any form whatever kind of slavery that there is, but they attempted to pull themselves up by the bootstraps and say that all men yes and they use the term man on therapy, a Greek word meaning man is up human beings and we have expanded that today, and we know that men equals men and women and all others who partake of this equal protection of the law. They, in the embodiment against involuntary servitude. That's a constitutional provision is that bad. Should we condemn that, should we criticize that and then I look at African-Americans and the tremendous progress that has been made a President of the United States, was an African-American. The current vice President of the United States partakes of African-American blood.
The Chief Justice of the Georgia Supreme Court was an African-American.
The mayor of Atlanta is an African-American United States Sen. from Georgia is an African-American United States senator from South Carolina is an African-American child on and on and on of both political parties, Republican and Democrat. So in the family.you will take your calls on this to an 800-684-3110, 1-800-684-3110 I feel about this anti-Americanism that was so pronounced during the July 4 celebration of our independence. But then these congressmen and women think that this is just it's an open season basically to attack United States and I think it goes back to the framework that you discussed Janina founding documents are date they secured a previously unrealized level of freedom and by the way, it's a level of freedom that is currently today.
If these same comments were made in many other places of the world they would not be permitted to would not be a freedom that you have and so you ask, what other country in the world would they want to live in NJ I think that's the proper perspective because if you look around the world at places that don't have this foundational freedom. That's where oppression range. That's where you don't have freedom. That's where the strides that Andy talked about that don't happen and the American flag day on on July 4, of all days to really every day of the year.
It should be a symbol to those of all partisan and political persuasions of that freedom. You don't have to agree, but it is the symbol that affords you the right to engage in a debate, by the way, J. Dissent that's got to be a part of that. That's an individual liberty. The founders envisioned and accomplished you. I think it's fine to have dissent. I think it's five, the New York Times could publish whatever opposites they want people to keep buying it. You don't have to buy it you put about a business.
If you like by people say that I can abide and then get smaller and smaller. They do have a much smaller and smaller audience, but it is important to point out that they are encouraging the teachers. The school districts. The universities parents. They are putting pressure on the communities they they they also encourages other voices from across the New York Times says it. I've got cover so probably going to work to put their critical race theory in the school and teach your kids how their bad enter countries bad and instead of saying your countries great.
Here the problems that is faced.
Here's how it dealt with those problems. Sometimes it took Civil War sometimes it took massive civil rights movement protest route across the country and we celebrate though that diversity. We celebrate dissent as they had said and there is righteous dissent but there is also just to sit for being a disinterest purpose.
I think of the New York Times case. This is just nasty to be nasty as our July 4 to attack the American flag New York Times 100 years ago would've done this, there'd be no New York Times today. I would not help her get away with it now because the anti-Americanism is is is Harry said, it's the it's the abundance of an evolving issue therapy and promoting it. The congressmen to protect protected so that is about it such that protecting themselves willing and I think it be great to hear from her audience on this to Bridwell joining us wants to talk about this issue. By the way, 800-684-3110, 1-800-684-3110. Don't forget also wear matching challenge campaign. We got a win to announce involving a big issuer and talk about that later in the broadcast but nice win at the District Court level got brief just filed the 11th circuit, a pending legislative prayer lot going on ACLJ.R, your gift is matched ACLJ.Margie only one. A society can agree that the most vulnerable and is there any hope for that culture to survive.

It's called mission will show you how you are personally pro-life support and publication includes a look at all major ACLJ pro-life cases were fighting for the rights of pro-life activists.

Now there's an opportunity for you to help me way for limited time you can participate in the ACLJ's matching challenge for every dollar you donate $10 gift becomes 20 $50 gift becomes 100.

The work we simply would not occur without your generous take part in our matching challenge make a difference in protecting the constitutional and religious freedoms most important to you. You forgive today online ACLJ secular overdose supervisor with ACLJ were acting director of national intelligence to this week and over July 4.
Rick also noted what the New York Times tweeted out of course the editorial they put out about the divisiveness of the American flag and have 588 you a at the farmers market.
It was upset because he had American flag out. People thought he was a not and in fact he turns out to be a liberal. He's a good farmer eyes your time said, but that the of the flag is now becoming a divisive and richest without the hate America. Stop paying these condescending elites body and Rick thinks victorious today.
I think that we we've all we did talk about this on the show and this is something that we all picked up on this weekend. It was in PR Washington Post, the New York Times, mainstream media, then the members of Congress use that to also – America to bash our founding documents.
The Declaration of Independence and that the July 4 holiday and told people not to celebrate it that it's bad that it's wrong.
The list goes on and on but they chose this holiday to again divide to try divide Americans. Rick Jane Kirkpatrick called the blame America first crowd and she was right back that she would be right today at rest her soul, and we we need to be very clear on what's happening.
We have people who do not understand the world and do not understand how lucky they are to be America literally bashing and attacking the greatest country in the world like I can tell you after traveling the world that you know where the most generous nation nation, and that in the world when it comes to allowing people to become citizens a million people a year get to be citizens, but there's 50 million more weighty. There are so many people that want to come into this country because we are the greatest country in the world and some of these people that are attacking us should travel a little bit more. The one thing I want to point out I do not see the attacks coming from first or second generation Americans and you have to ask yourself why is that why is it that people who come here and have experienced fascism from some rounds and then land in America and there's grateful to be here and they know this is the greatest country. Why are they not the ones who are attacking the five are attacking America because they know the truth. They know what it's like in other places as a second generation American myself I can relate to that because my grandparents fled the Soviet Union right will actually was before the Soviet Union. It was during the Russian revolution because of persecution against Jews and where they come to the United States of America.
Passing the Statue of Liberty now were not saying we never said that the Constitution is perfect in the declaration and patience is a pervert of them. Hearing that it wasn't but I will tell you this. This is the country they want to go to and Rick.
I just said this every liberty, freedom, progress that we've made has been based upon in court.
The equal protection clause of the nonstate Constitution is that we can interpret correctly. No, but is it more and more being interpreted correctly. Yes. So here's the irony.
The very freedoms and liberties that allow these individuals to post this to pronounce this are the very liberties enshrined in the Constitution and the Bill of Rights that are recognized in the Declaration of Independence that we get our liberties and freedoms from God. That's where it comes from the government's job is meant to protect those liberties so the irony to me Rick of all of this. I think the first generation second-generation Zapf with correct and the millions of people trying to get into the United States now is the fact that people lose sight of the greatness of this country problems sure were human beings we are all fall. Having said that, the fact is, I can't think of another country. Any these critics would rather be living in is solid as a whole bunch of people trying to spin it.
I watched it very clearly. I watched and live the US women's soccer team once again remember last year, the majority of the women's soccer team knelt down during the national anthem and were wearing black life matters shirts and some of them even bow their head while the national anthem play that was last year. This year the flag was to the right of all the players the entire Mexican soccer team email soccer team turned to the right database. The Mexican flag and every single one of those women were singing Mexican national anthem. Every single one of them. Then when the came time for the American to be played there a few I would say about half of the men turned to the right to face the flag.
The others refused to turn they look straight ahead.
And lucky they didn't bow, but they were so desperate, disrespectful, and immediately the women's soccer Association tried to say they were not being disrespectful. Of course they were. We know the history were not stupid.
Let me*this the women's soccer team representing what the United states of America.
You know, I would like to do it, go fund me eight for some of these women to go visit Gaza for two or three way right.
Let me be very clear and blocks many of those girls are lesbians, they wouldn't last second in the 69 countries that criminalize homosexuality. They are babies they are in grateful and I think it's time that we stand up and make sure that they don't give voice to America because data represents the real America.
We all know is the greatest country because of the crew they through people, Christians, gays and lesbians off of the roof tops okay be right. And let's not just take Gaza to be 100 other examples. This most of the world you will. You don't want to be an as is my dog out as a woman right take out your sexuality.
Just as a woman.
It's a great place to be. The idea is don't. Rick is also a ton of pressure coming from corporate America, which everybody only six so right wing, but in fact has shown the this woke movement so there's pressure on these athletes were not always highly educated on her history and it is not the focus focus on being a great athlete with a slight dip pressured into taking this position not to. That's the cool position that that the popular position is to be the one not singing, not acknowledging the flag and that they're getting, not just support from, but actually pressure from mainstream corporate America to every week with mainstream media is also mainstream corporate America accepting this now you are so right here and just compels me to say that more people will agree that you can't disrespect the flag when you're man wearing an American Jersey jersey representing United States of America. We have to speak up.
We have to make it more popular to be proudly American and stop this idea that it's really cool to be welcome to hate your country right Rick is always great insight because this is not just a talking point such as the people to forget. It happened on July 4. It is this is what I met with the schools schools go but can come back prepared for all this treatment.
We carefully got American flag flying in your house. There is a way that does Rick believe it or not we have had those cases where people have been told to take down their flight is compliant flag. I like my bicycle Linda Virginia had this big one on the bay and everybody had now we had cases we had been people having a plaque on their own property. We will notice that I will be right back.
Second half hour coming up, including a sale to a legal victory right back at the American Center for Law and justice were engaged in critical issues at home and abroad for limited time you can participate in the ACLJ challenge for every dollar you donate, it will be now $10 gift becomes $20, $50 gift becomes 100 you can make a difference in protecting the constitutional and religious freedoms most important to you and your family.
Give a gift today online ACLJ live from Washington DC and the fortune of stumbling cost across the New York Times. You probably did. You might be hearing about it though today ordered or seen on social media and will be just be Clifford.
By this is not a fake news headline. This is real. The New York Times assigned a job July 4. The week it was put out an editorial about how the whole story about how flying the American flag from the back of a pickup truck or over lot is increasingly see this a clue, albeit imperfect one to a person's political affiliation. Guess which affiliation that might be. You know I don't get it to our partisan politics that much but to think that it somehow bad for the Republican Party. This could be associate with American flag and the Democratic Party could be associated with what Cory Busch say that when they say that about the Fourth of July's about American free.
Remember this the freedom they referred to as for white people slander stolen land and black people still aren't free.
I don't think that message is appealing to the majority of people do, but young people is who it's getting too it's not something just to laugh off. This is real because now her signature timeout with Rick Grenell, the media, mainstream media and that which I think the most dangerous part of this that is actually that the media would siphon leftist and Nevers left left very little of the Vietnam protests pretty flights to but as is the corporate America has started to for this and have this political view these to come to be, but their bipartisan past the money to both clinical parties, they gave it to everybody running the ironing now they are promoting this.
The irony of this is where are these major corporations operating the United States of America. Where is it stable for these country companies to have their base of operation, the United States of America, why were politically stable. We have a fair justice system.
We have good state and local governments and we have good corporate law that allows corporations to operate successfully. So where to date they criticize but yet operate. They criticize like those Congress men and women but where else would they rather be exactly what Rick Grenell said when I said is exactly correct. Where would they rather be.
I think that Harry is the irony for Courtney do a lot of corporate amino law and economics but this is where operating absolutely and so I think corporations, particularly major corporations have taken a page out of the Academy and if you go back in time, there was an economists Torsten Veblen, who wrote a book called the leisure class and in his book he suggested that elites thought to flaunt their status through material possessions.
Today, things have been reversed. How do elites want their social status through luxury upper-middle-class beliefs which are all leftist. They're all grounded in the notion of the hatred of the founding of the United States. The claim that oppression is everywhere present. While there dressed in their Gucci and other expensive outfits and so there's a little history that goes along with this, and this includes Karl Marx who focused on economic disadvantage and he sought to destroy capitalism. Second came Antonio Ramsey, who advance critical theory, grounded in his focus on destroying all forms of disadvantage and destroying class differences. Then came Wilhelm Reich created a hierarchy of oppression and he claimed that the traditional family with the foundational unit of what fascism and so it goes on and on until Harvard law professors in the 1970s and the 1980s created something called critical race theory, which is now rampant in school systems throughout the United States and essentially they have captured the Academy they have captured public schools, and they have captured politicians here. What's interesting is that the person playing the national anthem at the women's US soccer game that Rick mentioned was a word.
It was a World War II veteran to play the anthem on his harmonica and sympathetic and get lost on this generation because it told that that love those older generations were good.
If your history is bad that he represents something bad that good. Like the greatest generation. The American Center for Law and Justice were engaged in critical issues at home and abroad. Whether it's defending religious freedom.
Protecting those for their faith.
Uncovering corruption in the Washington bureaucracy fighting to protect life in the courts and in Congress.
ACLJ would not be able to do any of this without your support for that. We are grateful. Now there's an opportunity for you to help me way for limited time you can participate in the ACLJ's matching challenge for every dollar you donate $10 gift comes 20 oh $50 gift becomes 100.

I don't see him running out to those places and get a look here even in Chicago. I would say when I would go to work downtown. The million to line up around the block to get into the immigration they wait hours and they spent dollars in legal fees just to make it legally here in our country, but my second point. Our Constitution don't not perfect. It's got a built-in framework of the legislative and the judicial system at the federal and state level to fix whatever problems that we encounter along the way. That's exactly the way it should be and frankly that is the way in which the progress is happened, you build up like I keep saying the Constitution and he is the framework it's the foundation to build upon these rights, privileges and liberties that we have is the constitutional framework that we build upon. But you know the things that I reflect upon in this hatred of America that shown by the left-leaning press.
Today's my own grandparents, both of whom came as refugees from Greece and Turkey in the teens and 20s of the last centuries, and I remember they can say we have to leave this land to go to Italy were going to go to Morocco Hope were going to go to Norway. They talked about many key they wanted to come to America and I remember 4 July when my grandfathers both of them in Miami would put out a flag and if it was raining they would run and take the flag down so it wouldn't get wet and they told us never let the flag touch the ground. It was a sacred symbol to them of something that today is being denigrated and downplayed by this lift left-wing media. What has happened to this country in the hundred years. It's not been good Pollyanna on Instagram said sometimes we do not know how good we have it until we go someplace else and that is the point if you had a legal case where else other than the United States of America. Would you rather be bad if I was looking at a politically and was trying to get a bill passed. What better system than United States with our closest ally in the Middle East. Israel right great country great people we support them but look their political system is a nightmare. It's similar to the English it's coalition base governments.
I would much rather have our constitutional republic in any of these dear way of government gives individuals not just elitist gives individuals unprecedented access to their government structure and getting changes into the law, if it's really a huge part of what were built around Jamie week we asked people to join with us to petition the government for redress of grievances and J it works, we band together we get to get those individuals together. We go to government either on the legislative side or in courtrooms with examples of wins this week I JN it if it affords those individuals an opportunity to to accomplish their own destiny.
I want to go back very quickly sent Jordan said I think a lot of what were seen J is dissent for dissent's purpose look it. If you're dissenting because you're trying to get a better goal based on merit, great.
But if your dissenting just for the purpose of tearing down the structure that affords you that opportunity to engage in the first place than JI think you probably need to look around the world. We have lots of examples in history where that will leave us. That is not where you want to go Jamie in Illinois on line 5 Jenny welcome to secular you're on the journey to, I'm an American, not that we hate this country that we help build this country make our contribution to the north client that arts and music all the invention America would not be America without now the situation is if we just want America to live up to what it supposed to be you and African-Americans are the true patriots. I keep hearing to pay it. Take nothing for love the country that loves you back but you can love a country that continues to show that it does not love you, much as everyone else.
It really makes a difference when your country.
Put drugs in your community that has a war that lead to mass incarceration in their community near country of the school of in your community and then build multibillion-dollar President and you have a different point of view.
All we want that America lived up to it, everything, especially given the fact that African-American are sweat and tears have built this country and all that the answer is that we may just have been due to the black sweat constantly having to write like an equal playing field that sets the principle of the equal protection clause. This idea that we are all equal under the law were all equal to process reply to everyone. And as I said in the course of the print pendants were striving for this more perfect union in order to form a more perfect union is not perfect.
We strive to create a more perfect union, so it's always a process, but without those foundational elements in place that perfect union does not come into existence and I guess Harry that's the point. I understand what Jamie say.
But the point that I'm making is no one saying that this is the perfect but it is a per it's the best system to obtain equality that mankind has ever seen.
I think that is correct. So I certainly applaud the caller's ambition to encourage the unit the country to live up to its ideals.
I think we should strive to live up to our ideals, but I also would draw a difference if you will, between the caller's comments and the purposes advance by critical race theory. What do they seek they seek to destroy the nation's ideals they seek to destroy the nation's constitution and so then where would African-Americans be where would other individuals be so if you look at the United States Constitution.
If you look at the third 13th amendment the 14th amendment. The 15th amendment those amendments to the Constitution represent and attempt albeit an imperfect one. To ensure that the nation lived up to its own ideals, but we now live in a country where elites are basically saying we need to destroy the nation completely and rebuild it. Why because they have a sense of entitlement, be they have an inability to forgive see their pursuing perfect justice when perfect justice is impossible on this side of eternity and then they also claim that the oppression that many people see in our society is built into the nation's DNA and its Constitution, and I think that is a false narrative. But guess what, at the end of the day.
Who are the individuals pushing this particular approach most vociferously. It's not African-Americans it's upper middle-class white Americans who basically dislike the country and so I think at the end of the day. Yes we must strive to live up to our ideals but we also must always keep in mind that we are an imperfect nation and we will continue to be so yeah I think that Harry sums up everything right and that a lot of this goes back to it's not. This is not an issue that was really I think having the African-American community without this pressure coming from corporate America and the media to say this is how you should be acting. This is how you should be feeling.
You should not like the country right now. You're not the justice is not being done and court systems don't work, the legal process doesn't work and this country. Whatever Orpheus is not worth enough true trying to fix it easier to tear down and restart on this instead of acknowledging the accomplishments along the way of a relatively young country. We look at world history still young country were talking about what it be like to celebrate 1/250 anniversary is nothing to most of the majority of the world, and yet they still are far behind where the United States is when it comes to equality between all of us for very very different yet different kinds of equality with its base of race, sex, gender your sexuality. All that is better than anywhere else in the world and he constantly is improving it's it's I get. It's a place welcome for all. It's not perfect but constantly it's trying to get there because we have those foundational elements in place within our constitutions are founding documents that allows for that more perfect union to be established and I think were were were cheating history here by not acknowledging that in fact those very documents are the very reasons we been able to make progress in these areas.
It is those documents those so-called pieces of paper. The people from the left simply just countersunk something unimportant upon which our courts and our legislatures have billed the rights and privileges and immunities that all people have in the yes we are imperfect but were striving for perfection. That's not brambles, that in order to create a more perfect union, knowing that were not perfect, but striving to become and to attain that perfection blessing is coming up will take your calls and comments get those in on any of the social media platforms are calls 100-684-3110 and everybody don't forget the matching challenge campaign is now going for the month of July.

John on YouTube loaded if the left is America so much. Is that what they try to blame things like climate change for mass migration. The idea again I think that we as a country's a great example of another issue. Climate change for its it's what it is and and the the start environment and the air that we breathe the cleanness of our water. We are still a leading country. Even though we are massive industrial country were still a leading country when it comes to cleated to the wood of big cities that we without pollution and Ed, we do make a lot of trash to the United States America because we consume a lot, which is part of our economic experience but yet you go to other major economic powers and it looks like you back to the Industrial Revolution. It looks like it's it's the.
The air is dirty and we work getting that right in the United States of America as well as leaving the world we live in. Part of the Paris deal already doing it. We do it for our own people for our own health. So I think the irony of all of this and as you boil it down here in the last segment of our broadcast is that this anti-Americanism I think is a political reaction to the last administrations putting America first and be as Harry calls it the balloon the elites of this country didn't like that sounded to too much pro America but yet we are the bastion of freedom. We are the shining city on the hill. Not perfect, but we do have the foundational elements to be a more perfect union. I keep saying that because everybody's forgetting what our documents actually say I think it's tragic that we've reached a point where it's acceptable to be anti-American doubt.
We live in America, so guess what you get to me anti-American because it's a free country will penalize you for that. I think it's disrespectful. I think it's wrong. I think we need to be teaching our young people about the real history here. What was really going on and what has gone on and that includes all the history with all the warts but don't trade this for someplace else. No, don't trade it for anyplace else because this is where it is. This is where our ancestors, at least my ancestors came in order to find opportunity into flea tyranny. This is the country that they chose.
Of all the countries they could've chosen when they were fleeing oppression and there were fleeing wars, poverty, hunger, stress, anxiety, depression, they came to the United States was a film that was made in the 50s called America. America and it was about the journey of a young man from Turkey and he wanted to go to the United States want to go anywhere else. That's all there any came as a shoeshine boy in New York City and he built himself up to have a tremendous Empire of the businesses through his own efforts.
What else can you do this, but in the United States and yet the local left today says no. This is a horrible country. This is a terrible country if you fly your flag from a pickup truck that tells you something Paula tells me is the German-American what's wrong with that. The typical farm was liberal so there you go yeah I mean constant Facebook were all imperfect beings we should hopefully do strive to better human beings, everyday living, indwelling the passes that allow for forward movement and growth building owner history is the key. And that's the difference.
Living in the past versus understating a history of building on is different living in the past. You can every one of us could pick it at moment in in this history.
Some more extreme than others that were the the art, the group that were associated with was treated differently, treated wrongly not given the full full experience of being an American and had to fight for that and that fight in the courts for that fight for that politically everyone can do that and solicit the it's different degrees was that sub is been some with much harder experiences. But again, it is the difference between living in the past versus understating history moving forward.
I think that's right. And again this was that built this bill not approaching you, then you mentioned the petition the government for redress of grievances that select that's in rights. We do that, that's how things change. That's how things historically change and you know what in the 200+ year history of our country. You still petition the government for redress of agreements gives you access to the government jammin look.
I just think if you're not trying to actually build up that the country with your engagement. Then of course it makes sense that you would support policies that weaken America. I think long-term though J I really think this backfires in this goes back to the call that we got from Janie. Look, it's a good thing to empathize with the perspective of those who have a different lived experience a nest and then to pursue policy changes accordingly BJ.
The solution is never to tear down the very framework by which you gain access to attach it to achieve those changes. If you tear down that structure then that in the lived experience that you had that you think that you think might be a disadvantage due date will never be able to fix that we can fix that better here than anywhere else in the world back to Thursday, the New York online one page and welcome to secular you're on the air high listening to the lady that was speaking and she was saying we want and that I understand that we are individual.
Okay every black person is an individual every white person is an individual okay every person is an individual you know not grew up together with my united mind that we all want to destroy this nation. You know that we all think the same thing. That is what these people are doing.
You know I am in strong disagreement with what these crazy people are doing is obvious you now that you know that they are not right now so but the thing is that because of the silence of a lot of the black people that it seems like we are in agreement with not wanting agreement with that.
I think anytime you cast a people from the same background of the same racial background where it might be and say it's monolithic, you're making a big mistake. This is not groups of people may be groups of people, but they are far from monolithic. I think you're right. It's very very important to keep in mind some basic statistics so the greatest gap that I have ever received from my dad was that he helped raise dots and if you actually look at the statistics and intact American African-American family does as well or better than individuals from any other ethnic group in the United States but yeah the black lives matter movement.
What do they support they support the destruction of intact, African-American families, and so if we follow the data and if we actually implement the black lives matter approach. Basically what that means is that that will ensure that fewer black Americans will do well in the United States but at the end of the day. We should also keep in mind that the elites who run the black lives matter movement will do better and I think that is the quintessential problem we have to face this issue of the pressure.
Everyone is out.
So if your African-Americans the pressure coming at you from celebrities from cultural leaders influential people. Politicians tell you this is what you need to believe you need to be protesting this you to be feeling this and by the way white America and the rest of America. You also need to be embracing this as well. When it comes from the media Corporation politics, and sometimes your faith leaders as well. That's it. That's it. That's a lot of pushback on which is why were here and say no today. After all, had this holiday to be a shame to celebrate Independence Day will to be a shame to celebrate United States of America sex.
None of us should ever feel ashamed.
