An event organized on Facebook aims to unite patriotic Americans under the banner of freedom as the country celebrates its independence while under medical tyranny.
The “America Proud Event” calls on every American across the country to fly an American flag while blasting out the “Star-Spangled Banner,” followed by Lee Greenwood’s “God bless the USA!”
“Tomorrow at 12noon, we encourage ALL Americans to fly your American flag, wherever you may be, and then go outside and play the ONLY National Anthem our Country has, the Star-Spangled Banner, followed by Lee Greenwood’s ‘God bless the USA!’. Play them loud and proud!” a Facebook post for the event reads.
“Let our flag fly high this Independence Day and let EVERYONE across this Nation hear our National Anthem loud and clear followed by ‘God bless the USA’ by Lee Greenwood.”
South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem says the thousands of people who attend the July 3 celebration for Independence Day at Mount Rushmore with President Donald Trump will not be required to practice social distancing despite an increase in coronavirus cases across the country.
“We will have a large event at July 3rd. We told those folks that have concerns that they can stay home, but those who want to come and join us, we’ll be giving out free face masks, if they choose to wear one. But we will not be social distancing,” Noem, a Republican, said in an interview Monday night on Fox News’ “The Ingraham Angle.”
State officials have told the people of South Dakota “to focus on personal responsibility,” said Noem, adding, “Every one of them has the opportunity to make a decision that they’re comfortable with.”
Far-left website Vox chose to commemorate July 4th by saying the American revolution was a “mistake” and that the country would have been better off staying under British control.
The reason? Because ‘racism’, or something.
“This July 4, let’s not mince words: American independence in 1776 was a monumental mistake. We should be mourning the fact that we left the United Kingdom, not cheering it,” writes Dylan Matthews.
Matthews claims that slavery would have been abolished earlier if America had lost the revolutionary war, failing to realize that the country would still be under the colonial enslavement of Great Britain – the very reason for going to war in the first place.
Actor Chris Evans, best known for playing Captain America, shared an Independence Day reminder of what the holiday really celebrates: “courage in the face of tyranny.”
The message sent on Twitter didn’t mention President Donald Trump by name.
Evans has been a frequent Trump critic, often using his Twitter feed to take the president to task on issues ranging from climate change to Russia… and has done it even after being warned by his advisers to lay off the politics.
“Look, I’m in a business where you’ve got to sell tickets,” he told Esquire in 2017. “But, my God, I would not be able to look at myself in the mirror if I felt strongly about something and didn’t speak up.”
And if that means some people won’t see his movies as a result?
“I’m OK with that,” he said.

Nike has pulled a line of patriotic sneakers to coincide with the July 4 holiday because Colin Kaepernick said he found the American flag design “offensive”.
The company planned to release shoes featuring the Betsy Ross American flag with 13 stars in a circle, but nixed the launch because Kaepernick said that this particular version of the flag was flown during a historical period that included slavery.
“Nike has chosen not to release the Air Max 1 Quick Strike Fourth of July as it featured an old version of the American flag,” the company said in a statement.
Horror master Stephen King ― a frequent critic of President Donald Trump ― called for an Independence Day truce between progressives and conservatives.
The best-selling author tweeted a message calling for people on the left to hug a conservative… and asking “Trumpies” to do the same for a “liberal snowflake.”
“Just for today, let’s all be Americans,” he pleaded
The biggest news this week is that the Left has officially turned against the First Amendment and freedom of speech — and just in time for the Fourth of July!
If you’re on the Right, it is not news that the Left wants to shut us up. The only change is that this goal is being announced openly in the leading publications of the mainstream Left, specifically in a long article in The New York Times warning about “How Conservatives Weaponized the First Amendment.” Weaponized. That’s right, they’re giving the First Amendment the same treatment they gave the Second. Does free speech seem as scary and dangerous as an AR-15 yet?
So what’s wrong with the First Amendment? It protects people the Left doesn’t like. No, really, that’s the argument.
The woman who ruined the 4th of July for thousands of tourists and put dozens of officer’s lives at risk to demand America have open borders has been identified as 44-year-old Therese Patricia Okoumou, an immigrant from the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
Though Okoumou’s protest demanded ICE be abolished, all deportations be halted and detaining illegals be outlawed, she’s actually the poster child for why we need ICE and a massive deportation force.
President Trump marked the Fourth of July on Wednesday by hailing the “noble sacrifice” of U.S. servicemembers.
In a video posted online, Trump recounted the story of the Declaration of Independence and the war against Great Britain that ensued.
“It was 242 years ago today in Philadelphia that 56 brave representatives of the American people adopted our Declaration of Independence,” Trump said. “They announced to the world that America would be free and America would be independent.”
The 5-year-old and his family had traveled thousands of miles to escape. When they finally arrived on American soil, free from the marauders who had burned their house to the ground, the boy was placed in a holding pen with his brother and sisters, while immigration officials decided their fate.
From this story, a classic piece of music emerged. The family, fleeing religious persecution in Russia in 1893, was soon reunited and allowed to enter the country. And that little boy, born Israel Beilin, would grow up to become Irving Berlin. Twenty-five years after emigrating, the same year he became an American citizen, he composed “God Bless America.”
The song, which rings out with special fervor each Fourth of July as a kind of unofficial national anthem, is turning 100 this year, and at a fraught moment in America’s relations with would-be immigrants, it is worth remembering its origins. Berlin said he first heard the title phrase from his mother, who frequently spoke the words with an emotion he later said “was almost exaltation,” despite their poverty. His daughter Mary Ellin Barrett later wrote that Berlin meant every word: “It was the land he loved. It was his home sweet home. He, the immigrant who had made good, was saying thank you.”
