Man Points Out The Irony Of People Who Are Screaming About Respecting The American Flag

By Tom.

John Fugelsang, American actor, NYU graduate, television personality, comedian and outspoken political commentator is causing quite the stir with his Tweets. 

America is in turmoil over so many divisive topics right now. One of the MOST contentious battles is over the respect of the American flag and the acknowledgement of the flag for Southern pride; the Confederate flag. John Fugelsang, a liberal commentator and radio host for SiriusXM Insight had no issue speaking his thoughts on this sticky subject. 

For many, this brings forward uncomfortable questions. What do these flags really mean and why? What did they stand for then and how has that evolved? 

For many on both sides, when discussing the American flag you hear it's the ultimate beacon of the long fought war for freedoms. Though when these flags and this Nation were created many of it's people were NOT free. 

This homegrown war bleeds into the controversy surrounding the #takeaknee movement led by players of the NFL, which is being met with LOUD, divided vocal reactions.
