The Left has become increasingly hostile toward American patriotism.
This is particularly true among some high-profile Hollywood celebrities.
But a Hollywood star made one pro-America statement that infuriated liberals.
Superstar actor Chris Pratt is skating on thin ice with liberals.
He’s survived multiple “cancelation” attempts for his views on Christianity and gun rights.
Pratt also wore a Gadsden flag, which sent liberals up a wall.
He also didn’t participate in a Marvel fundraiser for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris.
Some members of the Left even started a trend on Twitter of Pratt being the “worst Chris” in Hollywood because of his views.
Now Pratt might send them up a wall with his patriotic Memorial Day post on Instagram.
“America’s exceptional armed forces have altered the course of the world for the better. From the Union Army defeating slave owning confederates, to the Greatest Generation and her Allies vanquishing the Nazis or our special operators hunting down the perpetrators of 9/11. We count the names of each fallen soldier lest they be countless. They are the good guys. They run to the sound of gunfire. They know pain and suffering we never will. They have given us the most free and decent society planet earth has ever seen. We run the risk of losing that decency when we fail to instill gratitude in the minds of our youth or the perspective of what it actually means to be free- should they never learn of the selfless sacrifice of our armed service members in the face of oppressive evil.”
Instead of engaging in the reflection Pratt talked about, Kamala Harris tweeted a celebration of the “long weekend” without any mention of honoring the fallen troops.
Apathy and flat-out antipathy toward America were always there among the far-left, but now that sentiment is creeping into the mainstream.
“So join me in showing support for our fallen. Take a quiet moment to really consider the sacrifice. And if you use the comments section on posts like this to bitch and moan about America please understand there are countries in the world where criticizing your government will get you killed or imprisoned. Criticism is a right and necessity in amending the flawed systems of man. So by all means, let your voice be heard. But never forget your right to free expression is paid for in blood. May God give their souls rest, and may they live in our memories this weekend and always.”
The Left has shown open hostility toward the country.
Antifa and Black Lives Matter extremists openly chant “Death to America” in the streets, and other leftists call for the destruction of Mount Rushmore.
The country needs a dose of the gratitude Pratt talked about, but the Democrats and their media allies are going in the opposite direction.
They promote ideas that are antithetical to the American experiment.
Kudos to Pratt for saying what needed to be said.
Not many of his colleagues would be willing to say the same.
