And yet another smiling and successful celebrity disrespects our flag while she safely basques in the spotlight. Apparently Ms. Del Ray’s wealth and success has distorted her gratitude for this great country she lives in. How quickly she and so many other spot lighters forget that their lavish life style’s were made possible here in America!
Ms. Del Ray and others like her pretend to be patriotic Americans. They enjoy the safety and freedom our forefathers set before every American in the US Constitution. Sadly once they have become one of the rich and famous they lose site of what got them there, their gratitude and respect fades away.
I wonder, how much wealth and success would be their’s for the taking in countries like China, North Korea, Russia and Syria? Instead of fame and fortune these elitists could have very well endured a much different and possibly a horrific life. A life of pain, starvation, rape, torture and murder. Lets consider all the millions of people living in these conditions, many witnessing the slaying of innocent children and murder of entire families. These pampered entitled Hollywood stars really do fall short when it comes to being an American loving Patriot.
Patriots are those who have a love for their country and take pride in the nation. Patriots remain loyal to their country, passionately demonstrating a love for the country as a whole regardless of government affairs.
There are simple acts of patriotism such as openly displaying the country’s flag. 32-year-old model-turned-singer Grammy-nominated recording artist Lana Del Rey needs a reality check after making her decision to no longer wave the American flag or have it displayed as a backdrop on stage while she performs.

As for using the American flag at her concerts:
“I definitely changed my visuals on my tour videos. I’m not going to have the American flag waving while I’m singing ‘Born to Die.’ It’s not going to happen.
“I’d rather have static,” she added. “It’s a transitional period, and I’m super aware of that. I think it would be inappropriate to be in France with an American flag. It would feel weird to me now — it didn’t feel weird in 2013.”
“I feel less safe than I did when [Barack] Obama was president,” she continued.
“When you have a leader at the top of the pyramid who is casually being loud and funny about things like that, it’s brought up character defects in people who already have the propensity to be violent towards women. I saw it right away in L.A. Walking down the street, people would just say things to you that I had never heard.”
“Women started to feel less safe under this administration instantly,” Rey explained, while talking about making a switch to protest type songs for her new album “Lust for Life.”
The American Flag represents many things in our Country for instance our Armed Forces and the Veterans.
Veterans of war are often considered the ultimate patriots for risking or giving up their lives to fight for the betterment and safety of the nation.
Every American that is active in the U S armed forces take great pride in our country and the red white and blue stars and striped flag that stand for freedom.
So I would say to you Ms. Del Ray as you continue to enjoy living in the lap of luxury and raking in your millions of U S dollars. Have some respect for those who have provided you with the safety and freedom to pursue your career here in America.
Let me make a suggestion to Ms. Del Ray and the Kneeling Nitwits of the world, go spend some time in places like China, North Korea, Russia or Syria. see how safe and free you feel there. Maybe that will put things in perspective and have you singing a different tune.
