WATCH: American pride and patriotism is at an all time low
I love California. As Arizona neighbors, my fiance and I go to California at least once a month.
The beaches, the architecture, the forests, the food… California is a gorgeous place.
You know what ruins it?
Leave it to a bunch of mouth-breathing Californians to get all worked up about a patriotic logo on a freaking cop car.
Yup – Seriously.
According to Fox News:
The Laguna Beach Police Department in Orange County recently added American-flag-style lettering for the word “police” on the sides of the vehicles, the Los Angeles Times reported Saturday.
But local artist Carrie Woodburn told the Times the design was too “aggressive,” saying she felt it didn’t represent the community. Laguna Beach is a city of about 23,000 residents, about 50 miles southeast of Los Angeles.
Translation: It’s not nice to immigrants.
As an immigrant myself, I hate this nonsense SO FREAKING MUCH. My Mexican immigrant mother flies an American flag outside of her house. Why? Because she’s proud and grateful for her new home and all of the opportunity this great nation has provided her.
We both agree — if you come to America to complain about America… you have no place here.
But yeah. People are upset.
“Folks thought it was a SWAT team, federal agents,” designer Chris Prelitz observed. “So it had a very striking, strong impact, so much so that I think there might be some unintended consequences.”
Like WHAT, exactly? How are there “unintended consequences” to a patriotic logo? It’s all just so stupid.
Councilman Peter Blake was surprised by the backlash. He told the newspaper some people were concerned the design might worry the area’s immigrants.
“People are actually ridiculous enough to bring up comments about our cop cars having American flags on them,” he said.
AGAIN – IMMIGRANTS SHOULD LOVE AMERICA. PERIOD.
Attorney Jennifer Welsh Zeiter said she thought the police cars were “exceptional” and suggested that the opposition might have a political motive. She said some people are so filled with hate toward President Trump “that they cannot see through their current biases to realize that a police vehicle with the American flag is the ultimate American expression.”
I think she’s right on the money with this.
This is all about hate for our nation, and hate for our President.
Anything else is just a symptom of their derangement.
