PATRIOTISM MATTERS: Pledging Allegiance to a Burning Flag

New from RTV... Nation's top country song panned as "controversial" and "extremist" for decrying flag burning. 

As Team Biden continues to dismantle America -- corrupting her schools, politics and military -- the nation is left to wonder: Just who are the real haters in America today? 

A new song by Aaron Lewis has rocketed to the Number One spot on the Billboard chart after debuting within the top 15 of the Hot 100 on July 2, 2021.

 

Why does this matter? Because Lewis is being panned by the Left for "pandering to the radical right" in America.  You see, in Joe Biden's America  it's "controversial" and "radical" to oppose the burning of our flag, to be sick of simpering snowflakes like Bruce Springsteen, and to teach our children to honor the fallen who laid down their lives for their homeland. 

Most Americans are okay with flag burning?  I very much doubt that! So we made this video to test the theory.  In it, we lay old photographs of my father in World War II (20 years before he founded The Remnant) over the powerful lyrics, reminding our viewers to spread the word: Don't let the globalists trash what is left of the land of our birth, the land our fathers defended, our mothers civilized, our priests baptized and our children will grow old in.

We're losing 200 WWII vets per day now, and soon they'll all be gone. They weren't saints, but they fought and died for their mothers and fathers and neighbors and girlfriends and hometowns. Patriotism for them was about love of country, not love of the federal government.

This video is about Christian flag waving vs. Marxist flag burning. It's about the spirit of sacrifice, duty, honor vs. the spirit of Godless Globalism.

It's not about politics. It's about love and the triumph of a noble human spirit that is dying all around us. But we can never let it die.  It's time to turn the hate train around, and direct it against the real haters--the radical Left who hate everything from God, to country, to family, even the unborn.

Mr. Lewis is no traditional Catholic, but what he's writing about here is the Christophobic attack on everything that came before, especially love of country. Patriotism is a natural virtue, and it means love of the fatherland...not love of the Federal Government.  The same globalists who want to destroy that love of fatherland (what they now call "dangerous populist nationalism"), are also trying to destroy Christianity in America.

So, yes, strange bedfellows indeed. But Mr. Lewis is reminding Americans that love of country is not a bad thing and that, despite America's sins and flaws, she is still worth fighting for.  In fact, we honor the memory of the fallen by doing all we can to deliver our country from Globalist evil, and to turn back to God rather than turning our backs on Him. 

Stop hating America, in other words, and start loving her enough to heal her soul... and make her truly great again.  Eternal rest grant onto all those who died for the American hearth and home. May they rest in peace, and may we never forget.

Am I The Only One
by Aaron Lewis

Am I the only one here tonight
Shakin' my head and thinkin' somethin' ain't right
Is it just me? Am I losin' my mind?
Am I standin' on the edge of the end of time?

Am I the only one? Tell me I'm not
Who thinks they're takin' all the good we got
And turnin' it bad, hell, I'll be damned
I think I'm turnin' into my old man

Am I the only one, willin' to bleed
Or take a bullet for bein' free
Screamin', "What the hell" at my TV
For tellin' me, yeah, are you tellin' me?

That I'm the only one, willin' to fight
For my love of the red and white
And the blue, burnin' on the ground
Another statue comin' down in a town near you
Watchin' the threads of Old Glory come undone

Am I the only one not brainwashed?
Makin' my way through the land of the lost
Sees it as it is and worries 'bout his kids
As they try to undo all the things he did?

Am I the only one who can't take no more
Screamin', "If you don't like it, there's the frickin' door"
This ain't the freedom we've been fightin' for
It was somethin' more, yeah, it was somethin' more

Am I the only one, willin' to fight
For my love of the red and white
And the blue, burnin' on the ground
Another statue comin' down in a town near you
Watchin' the threads of Old Glory come undone

I'm not the only oneI can't be the only one
Am I the only one who quits singin' along
Every time they play a Springsteen song?

Am I the only one sittin' here
Still holdin' on, holdin' back my tears
For the ones who paid with the lives they gave
God bless the U.S.A

I'm not the only one, willin' to fight
For my love of the red and white
And the blue, burnin' on the ground
Another statue comin' down in a town near you
Watchin' the threads of Old Glory come undone

I'm not the only oneI can't be the only one
