We as Americans have many freedoms. Freedom of speech is one. We fly flags of many colors to express ourselves and our beliefs. Whether it is red, white and blue, multi-colored, or just a single color, each one has meaning.

The all-black American flags being flown by so-called local patriots apparently means “no quarter given” and may even imply a willingness to use (lethal) violence against perceived enemies, essentially any non-Trumper who threatens their washed-out, retrograde vision of what the U.S. is supposed to look like, how they believe democracy is supposed to function, or what they think freedom is.

Fly any flag you want. But just remember it is a reflection of yourself as a person and what you believe in. America, the land of the free.
