3. It's been said that...

Patriotism and religion (of the false varieties) are the last refuge of a scoundrel. Trump and his running dogs have tried to identify with the American flag for years, as have far right Republicans in general. Especially through Pence and the notorious Bible-holding photo-op stunt, Trump has tried to claim Christianity as well. Both are false allegiances, an illusory projection, just as Trump has been a sham president. For the past four years, I also have seen the American flag desecrated on the back of pickups flaunting Trump flags as well. It turned my stomach, and soured my appreciation of open flag displays as a MAGA shorthand...

...but on Inauguration Day in January, I will also fly a flag on my house as a symbol that we have taken our country back, and are installing a real president in which we may again take pride!
