USFlag.org: A website dedicated to the Flag of the United States of America - What do the colors of the Flag mean?

On July 4, 1776, the Continental Congress passed a resolution authorizing a committee to devise a seal for the United States of America. This mission, designed to reflect the Founding Fathers' beliefs, values, and sovereignty of the new Nation, did not become a reality until June 20, 1782. In heraldic devices, such as seals, each element has a specific meaning. Even colors have specific meanings. The colors red, white, and blue did not have meanings for The Stars and Stripes when it was adopted in 1777. However, the colors in the Great Seal did have specific meanings. Charles Thompson, Secretary of the Continental Congress, reporting to Congress on the Seal, stated:

"The colors of the pales (the vertical stripes) are those used in the flag of the United States of America; White signifies purity and innocence, Red, hardiness & valour, and Blue, the color of the Chief (the broad band above the stripes) signifies vigilance, perseverance & justice."
Where do we most often find this "hardiness and valor". Would that be the military men and woman who fought and died for this country?

Permits are required if a significant number of people are going to be involved. The permits are for crowd control not because you need permission to protest.

It is found in other places as well. The point being that red does not represent the blood of slain soldiers.

Who are all very, very easily replaceable. That is the biggest mistake an employee can make is not to realize this. There are a dozen people around the cornor waiting for their job.

None being more or as important as the "blood" shed by our soldiers. The red may not directly say blood but, the intent is there.

What does the Bible say about flag worship?

Fuck the fans! Go watch the movie: 'Concussion,' and take a look at what is being asked of young men (few of whom ever become millionaires) who end up with shortened lives filled with uncontrollable rage, severe headaches and addictions until brain damage destroys their lives and they die.....yeah, that sounds worth it!

Since 70% of NFL players are black, while at least the same ratio of fans are white as well as team owners are white, may as well say that pro football is no different than prison fight clubs today!

I love this argument by leftists. Lets look at some of the leftists protesting techniques over the last few years or so.



Quote:

The Traditionalist Worker Party had a permit to hold a rally on the Capitol grounds at noon, Granada said.​​​​​​​

Waiting for them were counter-protesters, including members of the anti-fascist organization Antifa Sacramento, which had promoted a "Shut Down Nazi Rally" event on its website leading up to Sunday.

A similar melee broke out in Anaheim earlier this year when members of the Ku Klux Klan announced they were holding a rally at a park. Counter-protesters showed up early and waited. When the first Klansmen arrived, they were set upon by the group.

Three people were stabbed at the Anaheim rally. At the Sacramento rally Sunday, seven people were stabbed and nine were hospitalized.


Neo-Nazis didn't start the violence at state Capitol, police say



Quote:

A dramatic protest late Saturday and early Sunday on Interstate 94 in St. Paul turned violent, with 21 police officers injured and more than 100 people arrested. Under occasional clouds of colored smoke, fireworks, hurled rocks and tear gas, confrontations continued until 4:30 a.m. Sunday, as demonstrators responded to the police killing in Falcon Heights of Philando Castile.

Quote:

federal survey estimates that at least $9 million in damages resulted from the Baltimore riots sparked by the death of 25-year-old Freddie Gray.

The Small Business Administration’s survey calculated damages of $8,927,000 to over 30 businesses and damage of at least $60,000 to one home during the violence from April 25 to May 3, Reuters reports.

Smaller damages were reported by 254 businesses and another home, leaving Maryland Senator Barbara Mikulski to push for disaster centers to be set up to assist business owners.

The US town of Ferguson has seen rioting and looting after a jury decided not to bring charges over the killing of a black teenager.

Quote:

Thousands of demonstrators carrying signs with slogans like "Stand Against Hate" descended on Berkeley's Martin Luther King Jr. Civic Park on Sunday for what many hoped would be a peaceful march against bigotry and President Trump.

But it was soon punctuated by tear gas and a scattering of violent skirmishes. Some anti-fascist protesters, wearing black and with their faces covered, chased or beat Trump supporters and organizers who had scheduled and then canceled the "anti-Marxist" rally, citing concerns over safety.


Violence by far-left protesters in Berkeley sparks alarm



Quote:

Protests that erupted at UC Berkeley ahead of a planned Wednesday appearance by right-wing commentator Milo Yiannopoulos caused $100,000 worth of damage to the campus, the school said Thursday.

The university blamed "150 masked agitators" for the unrest, saying they had come to campus to disturb an otherwise peaceful protest.

Two Berkeley College Republicans "were attacked while conducting an interview" on the campus on Thursday, UC Berkeley also said in a prepared statement. The attackers, who were not affiliated with the university, were taken into custody by UC Berkeley police.

Quote:

Vice Media co-founder and conservative comedian Gavin McInnes was hit with pepper spray by angry protesters before his scheduled speech Thursday night at New York University.

Quote:

Author and political commentator Lauren Southern, and independent journalist Luke Rudkowski were attacked with urine on Saturday during a counter protest against the anti-Sharia march in New York City.

That is just a few i grabbed. But please go on.



Now i know that some of you will be tempted to attempt to counter that with the isolated incident in Charlottesville but if you do try and remember that it was the leftists who showed up to "counter protest" who far outnumberes the scheduled protesters that initiated and escalated the violence. As tempting as that is it is nothing but a red herring and is not a counter argument to the drovee of violent leftist "protests" over the last few years.
