Patriotism is alive and well in our country. The most recent example took place in Las Vegas, Nevada. Nevada had a reputation for being economically right (no state income tax), yet libertarian (leave my gun alone) and home to a wide-open lifestyle known for outdoor sporting activities, 24/7 gambling and even prostitution. What’s not to like?
The problem started when Californians, tired of that state’s numerous issues: high taxes, real estate prices and unsustainable immigration policies, decided to move east and brought their liberal values with them. Since 2018, the Governor, Lieutenant Governor, Attorney General, Treasurer, both Senators, and all but one member of the House of Representatives are Democrats. The Governor introduced red flag laws, mandated the use of alternative energy, and trampled on our rights in the last election. As a result of his shutdowns, Nevada had the highest unemployment rate in the nation, 28%. The Democrats acquired a supermajority in the Nevada Assembly in 2018 so no one can stop them.
Against this backdrop, people are apprehensive and are forming numerous patriot groups. We will eventually change things but it may take a while. In the meantime, liberals feel free to challenge conservatives, especially Trump supporters.
The latest incident happened at a local restaurant. A Patriot, let’s call him Jim, entered a coffee shop looking to make a reservation. He was on his way to a Bible study group. He was wearing a flag design gator to cover his face. On his head he had a cap that said, “MAGA”. The hostess would not assist him and after calling her manager, threw him out of the restaurant. Jim recorded the whole thing on his phone. She got even madder when she saw he was recording. She was heard screaming about him being a Trump supporter. From the video it looks as if she took her phone and tried to knock his phone out of his hands. Jim was calm and asked what the problem was. Could he get a reservation? She did call the police and before they arrived, Jim had decided to leave and attend his meeting. I don’t blame him. If he tried to eat there would they spit in his food?
This hit all the local patriot groups, local radio and may even be on TV. Yelp blew up with negative reviews regarding this restaurant and how Jim was treated. Some said they heard about it and others said they were there. Yelp cut off comments after the manager responded, saying he wanted to treat everyone fairly and yet he still defended his employee’s behavior. I’ve heard he has since apologized.
MAGA is still going strong and it warms my heart. I’m glad so many people had Jim’s back. I hope someone sues the restaurant. I hope citizens on the right and left start complaining about censorship and cancel culture. I hope the liberals see we will fight back and make noise. This is one small example but it is one we can all learn from. Band together. Support each other. GET LOUD.
