“the American flag has been hijacked as code for a specific belief”
Grammy-winning singer Macy Gray has decided that the American flag does not represent all Americans and needs to be changed, thus proving once again the left’s contempt for the United States.
The left scoffs at our concern over the destruction and removal of historic statues. They laugh when you bring up cancel culture or voice concerns about rewriting history with the 1619 Project. Then they prove our concerns are valid over and over again.
Gray didn’t just mention this on Twitter. She wrote an op-ed for Marketwatch:
For Juneteenth, America needs a new flag that all of us can honor
The Confederate battle flag, which was crafted as a symbol of opposition to the abolishment of slavery, is just recently tired. We don’t see it much anymore. However, on the 6th, when the stormers rained on the nation’s most precious hut, waving Old Glory — the memo was received: the American flag is its replacement.
President Biden, Madame Harris and members of Congress: the American flag has been hijacked as code for a specific belief. God bless those believers, they can have it. Like the Confederate, it is tattered, dated, divisive, and incorrect. It no longer represents democracy and freedom. It no longer represents ALL of us. It’s not fair to be forced to honor it. It’s time for a new flag.
Incorrect? Let’s look to the stars. There are 50, where there should be 52. D.C. and Puerto Rico have been lobbying for statehood for decades. Both have been denied, since statehood would allow each territory’s elected officials seats in the house.
Assuming D.C. reps would be African-American and Puerto Rican reps would be Hispanic, the ultimate assumption is that these elected officials would be Democratic.

We will not being replacing the American flag @MacyGraysLife. If you hate our flag that much then you should really consider leaving and trying to find a better country. You won’t find a better one but maybe you’ll come back grateful to be American. https://t.co/4orc9XbwsQ

.@MacyGraysLife had one hit song about 20 years ago and hasn’t done anything since.
Now she wants to come out from the dark and say that she hates our flag.

You got to be kidding me.
Mark my words: ALL OF THIS will badly backfire on the the left. They will be voted out for a VERY LONG TIME.

A new flag?! No thanks. Old Glory still waves as a symbol of liberty and justice for all.https://t.co/Rfrn5M3exz

Gray’s emphasis on the Capitol Riot and granting statehood to DC and Puerto Rico makes it obvious that this is all about partisanship. In case there was any wonder, Gray participated in a concert in October of 2020 to benefit Joe Biden.
Ted Johnson reported at Deadline:
Joe Biden’s Campaign Plans ‘I Will Vote’ Concert With John Legend, Cher And Andra Day
Joe Biden’s presidential campaign is making another fundraising push in the final days before the Nov. 3, with a virtual concert on Sunday that will feature a long lineup of musicians including John Legend, Cher and Andra Day.
Also in the lineup: A$AP Ferg, Sara Bareilles, Aloe Blacc, Black Eyed Peas and Jennifer Hudson, Jon Bon Jovi, Ciara, Darren Criss, Jermaine Dupri, NE-YO, Johnta Austin and Friends, Foo Fighters, Macy Gray, Dave Matthews, P!nk and Ben Platt.
Tickets to the I Will Vote Concert start at $25 per person, and rise to $1,000. Biden and his wife Jill are scheduled to attend along with Kamala Harris and Doug Emhoff.
The American flag is not divisive. The same cannot be said for the American left, which seems to spend every waking moment trying to figure out how to further divide Americans.
