The New York Times politicized the American flag over Twitter on the eve of Independence Day by saying the “flying the American flag” shows a “person’s political affiliation” nowadays.

The Times, which has had no problem politicizing religion in the past, now tweeted that “flying the American flag from the back of a pickup truck or over a lawn,” which Americans have graciously done with Old Glory on holidays — such as Independence Day to show their support for America — is now “increasingly seen as a clue” to which they call an “imperfect one” to “person’s political affiliation.”

Today, flying the American flag from the back of a pickup truck or over a lawn is increasingly seen as a clue, albeit an imperfect one, to a person’s political affiliation in a deeply divided nation. https://t.co/TODmHEmPsO

The article they were tweeting about is titled, A Fourth of July Symbol of Unity That May No Longer Unite, which is about a Long Island town where “neighbors now make assumptions… about people who conspicuously display American flags.” Also included is a local Democrat-leaning man having trouble selling his farm’s produce because no one wants to buy from a Republican.
The Times also states how members from both parties have “long sought to wrap themselves in the flag,” but now claim the county is changing because of politicization of the flag. The Times belief is that “flying the flag” is a “clue” you could likely be part of the Republican party.

The article claimed the negativity towards the American flag could be because people around the country have supported former President Donald Trump when he takes the stage at his rallies and even across media platforms. Unfortunately, the Times also made the claim that supporters “embraced the flag so fervently,” which in turn is a symbol of the January 6 protests and riots at the U.S. Capitol. Some leftists, according to the Times, “worry that the left has all but ceded the national emblem to the right.”
The article continued:

What was once a unifying symbol — there is a star on it for each state, after all — is now alienating to some, its stripes now fault lines between people who kneel while “The Star-Spangled Banner” plays and those for whom not pledging allegiance is an affront.
And it has made the celebration of the Fourth of July, of patriotic bunting and cakes with blueberries and strawberries arranged into Old Glory, into another cleft in a country that seems no longer quite so indivisible, under a flag threatening to fray.

In response to the Times, a Senior Editor at Human Events tweeted, “Prayers up for all the NY Times reporters who have to endure this weekend full of American flags”:

Additionally, the Special Advisor for Communications for Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) responded to the Times also tweeted a gif on the American flag adding “CC: New York Times”:

J.D. Vance on July 4: Leftists ‘Are Trying to Make Us Hate our History’

Leftists want Americans to hate their own country ahead of Independence Day, J.D. Vance, author of Hillbilly Elegy: A Memoir of a Family and Culture in Crisis and Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate seat from Ohio, said on Friday’s edition of SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Daily with host Alex Marlow.
Democrats and the broader left frame the United States as a nation born in sin in need of political salvation through leftist ideology, Vance observed.

“What I really hate about what the left is doing right now is … that they’re trying to make us hate our history,” Vance remarked. He determined that left-wing historical revisionism is not done in good faith “to learn lessons from our history.”
A unifying affectionate view of national history facilitates social cohesion and healthy functioning, Vance held.
“Unless you have that real deep sense of patriotism that makes you feel like you’re connected to the traditions of the past, inspired to make your country better for the future, then you can’t actually accomplish anything,” he said. “You’re not a real country if you don’t have a sense of your history.”

He continued, “On this Fourth of July, especially given, what’s going on politically, we should say we’re proud to be Americans. We take pride in our traditions, and we’re looking to build something better for the future, because if we don’t, then what’s the point of this whole American project?”
Disconnecting Americans from their history makes them more vulnerable to governmental control and manipulation, Vance warned.
“When they take away our pride of place, when they take away our pride in our own history, what they really do is they make us easier to control, and they make it harder for us to feel that inspiration that’s necessary to continue building this country instead of plundering it, which is of course what so many of our ruling class are doing,” he said.
He concluded, “Get out there on the Fourth of July, wave that American flag, get happy about what we’re doing, because this country is still a very great place despite all its problems.”
