It seems liberals won’t be happy until they remove all traces of our history and heritage. You know all about how they’ve rioted to tear down statues of American leaders. In public schools, they rewrite our history. In many states, they don’t even allow students to say the Pledge of Allegiance.
But one state seems to be going the extra mile to eradicate its culture and history. The state was coerced into redesigning the flag it has used since 1903. They even passed a bill to get rid of this old flag and replace it with a new one. But tell me if you notice something missing from the “modern” design.
From Fox News:
After years of finding and even using different iterations, Gov. Spencer Cox signed a bill and an executive order Tuesday formalizing the change and designating the old flag as a “historic state flag.”
The new “state flag” features a large yellow beehive — the state’s symbol for “Industry,” also its motto — at its center with red, white and blue running horizontally in the background. The white section in the center also makes pointed crests, reflective of the state’s mountainous terrain.
You can see in the image above the original flag and the new design. The new one adds an updated version of the original’s beehive, which has been a longstanding symbol of Utah for its industry. But the new flag, while keeping red, white, and blue stripes, scrubs away iconic, patriotic imagery.
Gone is the actual American flag, depicted twice on the old flag. And, of course, whatever modern designers they hired erased the bald eagle, our national bird and eternal symbol of our liberty and justice. They also erased the dates of Utah’s founding and entrance into the Union.
What the state has adopted as its new flag has all the history, heritage, and charm of Microsoft clipart. It is uninspired, bland, and totally forgettable. It reminds me of an Olympic team logo, something easily whipped up in Photoshop, but quickly discarded.
Why did Utah feel the need to redesign its flag, anyway? What was wrong with the original, designed by the Daughters of the American Revolution? Why did Republicans in the state legislature bow to pressure to scrub away Utah’s history and identity?
The state spent time and tax dollars on something that is boring and un-American. But if the woke left has its way, every last trace of our culture and national identity will become a thing of the past. All we’ll be left with is a list of words we cannot say, and culture as terrible as a drive-thru restaurant.
- Utah unveiled a new state flag, removing the old one as a relic.
- The new design scrubs away American symbols including the bald eagle.
- This comes as the woke left seeks to erase America’s heritage and identity.
