God Bless America – A Lesson Our Kids Need to be Taught

Recently, on our local news, they showed commentary from a conservative and then rebuttal from a liberal. The contrast between the two were striking and revealed the blinded views of the liberal.

The conservative spoke about the importance of teaching students the importance of the phrase ‘God bless America’. He emphasized that our kids need to know about the millions of Americans who have sacrificed life and limbs to first win our countries freedom and then to preserve that freedom.  For nearly 250 years, many men and women have fought to defend the concept of God bless America.

The liberal countered with the typical defense of not wanting to offend anyone. She spoke of being sensitive of everyone’s feelings and the need to be all inclusive.

Hearing that makes one begin to yell at the television at the liberal and ask her what about offending the majority of Americans who still identify as Christians? What about including them?

What this liberal and every other liberal really means is that they want special rights and privileges for everyone who holds the same liberal views while at the same time, removing the rights and freedoms of everyone who disagrees with them. Folks, this is nothing more than pure socialism and/or political dictatorship.

This really hit home when I recently listened to Lee Greenwood sing his hit song, God Bless the USA. I listened to the lyrics and thinking about America today, it almost made me weep in despair. Take a few moments to listen to the song and follow along with the lyrics below:

If tomorrow all the things were gone
I worked for all my life
And I had to start again
With just my children and my wife

I thank my lucky stars
To be living here today
‘Cause the flag still stands for freedom
And they can’t take that away

And I’m proud to be an American
Where at least I know I’m free
And I won’t forget the men who died
Who gave that right to me
And I’d gladly stand up next to you
And defend Her still today
‘Cause there ain’t no doubt
I love this land
God Bless the U.S.A.

From the lakes of Minnesota
To the hills of Tennessee
Across the plains of Texas
From sea to shining sea

From Detroit down to Houston
And New York to L.A.
Where’s pride in every American heart
And it’s time we stand and say

That I’m proud to be an American
Where at least I know I’m free
And I won’t forget the men who died
Who gave that right to me
And I’d gladly stand up next to you
And defend Her still today
‘Cause there ain’t no doubt
I love this land
God Bless the U.S.A.

And I’m proud to be an American
Where at least I know I’m free
And I won’t forget the men who died
Who gave that right to me
And I’d gladly stand up next to you
And defend Her still today
‘Cause there ain’t no doubt
I love this land
God Bless the U.S.A.

This is what students need to be taught, but sadly, they are taught the exact the opposite. They are not taught to be proud to be an American and they aren’t taught about the men and women who died to give them the rights they have.

Parents need to demand that their kids are taught the truth and not the socialist leftist lies that are being taught to them every single day. If parents value their kids, the future of their kids, grandkids and on, and if they value America, they need to start standing up and making demands of the public education system to start teaching the truth.
