    Surge Summary: American Liberals and Conservatives used to be able to agree on general love of their nation. As further acts dishonoring the U.S. flag pop up around the nation, it is clear anti-American Leftists want no part of that.

    Why can’t the left stomach our national anthem and the American flag?

    In the last couple of years, the left has gone from demanding that we respect the right of an athlete to protest during the national anthem to now attacking athletes who refuse to take a knee during the national anthem.

    For example, the leftists who run U.S. Soccer Federation Athletes’ Council recently voted to repeal the rule that required players to stand during the national anthem.  That was bad enough.

    But then they had the audacity to remove the one person on the board who dared to defend America and our flag, Seth Jahn, who just happens to be a disabled veteran of Native American descent.

    To his credit, Jahn isn’t backing down.  He told Fox & Friends:

    “The only mass discrimination in our country is [against] conservative voices – whether White, Black, Hispanic, Asian, Native [American], gay, straight conservative. They are shamed for the ideals they hold and their voices are suppressed, and I’m tired of it.”

    You’re not the only one, Mr. Jahn!

    I know a lot of patriotic liberals.  It wasn’t that long ago when we could disagree about certain issues, while remaining united in our love for America.  Unfortunately, the ideological left has ruined that too.  Many progressive socialists are almost universally anti-American now.

    We’re getting another example of this in Fairfax County, Virginia, a suburb of Washington, D.C., which is increasingly controlled by leftists.

    The Fairfax County Planning Commission evidently felt that it needed to dictate the size and quantity of flags that homeowners could have on their property.  Seriously, with everything else going on right now, this somehow rose to the top of the commission’s agenda.

    According to Daniel Gade, a retired Army lieutenant colonel, the new size proposed by the commission was smaller than the flags that are draped over the coffins of our fallen heroes when they arrive at Dover Air Force Base.

    But score one for red-blooded Americans in deep blue Fairfax County. The Planning Commission was on its way to passing this obscene measure, but there was such outrage by local veterans and patriots that the commission backed off.
