It’s 2018 two hundred forty-two years since the American Revolution ended and began the greatest government experiment in history. Our political landscape is no calmer today than it was in the beginning or, through the decades since its beginning. Our nation’s political partisanship seems to be the one consistent thing to maintaining our government. One should fear too much agreement over the peaceful diplomatic disagreements.
It seems that many have blended protest with disrespect then claim that freedom gives them the right to do both. If one has the freedom, they, in fact, have the freedom to protest. However, if one has self- respect, they understand the difference between protest and disrespect. The cost of freedom is always the blood and lives of dedicated soldiers who can’t imagine the cost to society of Freedoms alternative.
We are getting distracted from the argument of disrespect when we attempt to align a disrespectful act with a right of freedom. Yes, one is free to be disrespectful. However, when one elects to be disrespectful, it’s not about freedom it is about them being disrespectful. Our soldiers fought, and still fight and die for the freedom of the repressed, but none of our soldiers fought and died yesterday or, today for others to hijack freedoms purpose in-order to be disrespectful.
"Freedom is a Pass to Protest it’s not a Pass to be Disrespectful in the name of Protest."
