I am always proud to be an American, but last night especially so. And I was very proud of my town who showed classy and mature behavior to people who were only there to disrupt and cause trouble. Yes sir, love trumped hate last night alright. It truly did.
“…what country before ever existed a century & half without a rebellion? & what country can preserve it’s liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance? let them take arms. the remedy is to set them right as to facts, pardon & pacify them. What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots & tyrants.” Thomas Jefferson, Nov. 13. 1787.
Oh, the red-hot irony of it all. Last night, at St. Augustine’s annual and always beautiful Nights Of Lights celebration, anti-American protesters show up and formed a ring around the bandstand and attempted to take the event hostage. They were their to show their hatred of “AmeriKKKa” and it’s “history of racism”. But as I looked around, it was obvious I was in the middle of an enormous pool of diversity with more ethnicities than I could count, and everyone was peacefully assembled to watch the show. How very ironic.
On the bandstand, I watched talented singers and presenters from a variety of different races, all working in harmony together and by the smiles on their faces really enjoyed being there. Blacks, whites and Latinos all having a great time together. Imagine that. The only stain on the evening were the minions of George Soros, the ANTIFA wannabees, demanding that Americans go back to the 19th century and relive our history all over again.
Alt-Left Liberals Invade Saint Augustine But Fail To Disrupt Annual Holiday Celebration:
This is what I saw at the Nights Of Lights in Saint Augustine last night. If you are reading this via email, please click here to watch the video.
As I watched the protesters, what struck me the most was the hatred they had in their hearts for the country they lived in, and the utter disrespect they have for anyone who dares to disagree with them. They demanded an “end to the KKK”, but not a single white supremacist was evident anywhere in the crowd. Like ISIS in the Middle East, they seek to tear down statues and historical monuments from our past they don’t like. Fascism is like that, no one is allowed to have a differing opinion.
They were there to “protest fascism” and they did it just like fascists would do with fear, intimidation and mob mentality. Just like the KKK.
But the townspeople of America’s oldest city didn’t take the bait. In true and wonderfully American style, 10,000 people of all ethnicities allowed the hated-filled Alt-Left snowflakes to have their say unmolested. Not one person threw anything at them or engaged them in a verbal shouting match. We allowed them to have their freedom of speech guaranteed to them in the Constitution of the ‘AmeriKKKa’ they hate so much.
I am always proud to be an American, but last night especially so. And I was very proud of my town who showed classy and mature behavior to people who were only there to disrupt and cause trouble.
