If the American flag, ‘America First,’ and ‘Make America Great Again’ are all symbolic with racism, what about products ‘Made with American pride?’
Once upon a time, Americans were proud of the fact that we are Americans first…regardless of race, creed, sex, or, even national origin.
However, thanks to the open-borders globalist Left, the concerted campaign to force political correctness down America’s collective throat, slogans such as “Built with American Pride” and “Proudly Made in the U.S.A.” may soon be relegated to the dustbins of other racist symbols…like the American flag.
Regardless of the slogan’s 75-year old roots in trying to keep America out of World War II, to many Americans today, the term America First merely is a rejection of the putting America’s interests behind that of poorer, or lesser, nations.
America First simply means that, for Americans, America’s interests should come first.
However, the globalist Left wholly rejects that premise and believes that America is no better than any third-world banana republic. And, in so doing, in order to succeed, pride in America must be torn down.
To them, America’s riches are, at best, the result of good luck and, at worst, the result of class exploitation.
This is why Leftists work so hard to “shame” Americans who take pride in our nation by calling them xenophobic or, even worse, ‘racist.’
This is why, for example, former President Bill Clinton (despite having used the term repeatedly in the past) implied the phrase “make America great again” is racist, as well.
So, what then of the the American workers who take pride in their products being ‘proudly made in the U.S.A.?’
If America First and Make America Great Again are racist slogans, how long will it be before Built With American Pride or Proudly Made in the U.S.A. is deemed racist as well?
Dear white working class: I hope racism keeps you warm at night https://t.co/asMaIqV3r8
