KOMMONSENTSJANE – SPONSORED MESSAGE FROM REPUBLICAN MAJORITY.

We must confront this destructive ideology with the truth about American history.

Remember those who fought and died for this country to save others from this same tyranny and the debt we owe America’s Founders and of our obligation to preserve liberty for future generations. Pelosi/Schumer/Democrat Marxists are responsible for this destructive ideology and we must hold them accountable..

This is sponsored message from Republican Majority is on behalf of Hillsdale College

Dear Friend of Liberty,

As a fellow patriot, I’d like to send you a Betsy Ross flag.

The design of this flag, with its 13 stripes and circle of 13 stars—representing America’s original 13 colonies—is a powerful symbol of the American Revolution and of the principles on which the Revolution was fought.

In the words of the Declaration of Independence, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.”

Throughout most of our nation’s history, Americans learned about and revered these ideas.

Sadly, because of the Left’s hijacking of history education in so many of our schools, this is no longer true.

Consider the 2019 controversy surrounding the Betsy Ross flag I mentioned above.

When, shortly before Independence Day, Nike announced its plans to release an athletic shoe featuring the Betsy Ross flag, Nike spokesman Colin Kaepernick objected, condemning the flag as a symbol of racism and slavery. A social media storm followed.

Consequently, Nike announced that it was halting production of the shoe.

This controversy was trivial. But the episode points to something else…

What is NOT trivial is the attempt to spread anti-American ideology into every area of American life…

….and the fact that too many in positions of authority immediately retreat when confronted by political correctness and anti-Americanism.

The Kaepernick episode illustrates the problem of progressive education, which seeks to rewrite our nation’s history and undermine the kind of informed patriotism that is essential to preserving liberty.

Instead of learning to love America, many students today learn to hate it.

The Nike shoe controversy, like the frenzy for tearing down statues that we witnessed in so many of America’s cities last summer, is the bitter fruit of this progressive educational agenda.

We must confront this destructive ideology with the truth about American history.

And we must nurture an informed patriotism among the young if our liberty is to be preserved. As always, liberty’s only sure defense is an educated citizenry prepared to defend it.

This is why your support of Hillsdale College is so important.
