Memorial Day Alert – Demonstrating how far American patriotism has been decimated by a wave of leftist ‘woke’ indoctrination in our schools and society, students and other people walking around the Georgetown area of Washington, D.C. this past weekend, signed a fake petition ahead of Memorial Day to ban the holiday honoring our war dead for glorifying ‘American Imperialism.’

Fox News reported:


The petition, authored by Campus Reform, a conservative news site and higher-education watchdog, calls for support to ban Memorial Day in the U.S. for glorifying “American Imperialism.” Campus Reform reporter Addison Smith interviewed those who signed the petition in a video published on the outlet’s website.

See the video here.

In the video, one young man told Smith that he thinks Memorial Day is “a celebration of U.S. imperialism and colonialism,” adding, “It’s not an attack on any individual but more of a system.”  When asked to expand on his thoughts about imperialism, the young man says:

I didn’t really think in this way until I went to college and I took women’s and gender studies classes and that put me on this path where I’m like, yeah, f–k the U.S.

For me, I was on this spirituality-type journey where we’re all one or whatever and what I was learning in social justice was the material analysis I needed to practice what I feel like exists on a spiritual plane in real, everyday life.

The young man then says “yes, please,” when asked whether he’d want to completely abolish the U.S. military.

Fox News concluded by noting that “one woman declined to sign the petition because she did not want to have one of her ‘bank holidays’ revoked, adding that the holiday should instead be rebranded as ‘something else’ that celebrates ‘something worthwhile instead of imperialism.’

Another young woman said: “If we’re going to honor and celebrate the dead, I think it should be those who lost their lives to genocide in America.”

In response, Fox Nation contributor and retired Marine bomb technician Joey Jones told “Fox & Friends Weekend” that one of the young men in the video he called “children,” appeared to be about the same age as he was when he fought in his first war. Jones added:

Have you ever seen the movie ‘Frozen’? I’ve got a 2-year-old daughter. I watch it a lot more than I want to,” Jones said, making an analogy. “There’s a snowman in the movie ‘Frozen,’ and he’s so stupid and ignorant to the world around him, he can’t wait until summer. He sings a whole song about summer, and he’s a snowman.

Comparing these ignorant woke children in the video to the ‘Frozen’ snowman, Jones said the U.S. Marine Corps represents the protections the military provides the country that, adding that the only thing keeping the snowman’s face from melting off is a “Disney princess (the United States)… and a cloud of snowflakes” (the freedoms our military provides) constantly falling on the snowman, keeping him alive.

Well said, Jones. Semper Fi!

They learn how to be naive and unaware of the dangers that some countries pose to our people. They don’t understand that you don’t have any opinions in some countries.If the government wants to they will drag you out of your house and bury you alive. When they speak they don’t understand how foolish they really are. Failed school system.

This is incredibly eye opening. Time to hunker down. Unbelievable that Biden does not build anything, just tears down Trump’s doings.. 57 executive orders to kill jobs and hurt union workers, to drive up the price of oil, to make USA less competitive by choking off the oil. This is only 4 months of Biden. How can it continue?
