I could not believe my eyes as I watched it unfold on July 4th, our Independence Day. As the rest of America celebrated freedom, Emily Lance was taking pleasure in literally pissing on an American flag.
I had mutual friends with her on Facebook, and I almost commented on the video. However I decided not to because I knew she would only resort to the argument that it was protected under free speech. That still did not change how angry it made me.
The disrespectful brat even admitted in the comments that she had family who served in the military and that her family does not approve of how she is acting.
Her caption wit the video read: “F*** your nationalism. F*** your country. F*** your stupid f****** flag.”
She thought it was all fun and games until a bounty was placed on her head. Yes, that’s right. There is a $3,000 reward to kill Emily Lance now.
Lance posted, “Freedom (of speech/expression) means that I’m entitled to do and say as I please, EVEN if you don’t like it, so long as I am not physically hurting someone – and no, your precious feelings don’t count, that’s your own problem,” Lance wrote online as her video began to gain traction. “What don’t you people understand?”
She also added, “You’re celebrating freedom while damning me for doing the same. You can’t have it both ways. FREEDOM OR NONE. Practice what you preach or shut the f*** up.” Lance continued, “People are wishing illness, harm, and suffering upon me over a piece of fabric.”
Her page appears to have been deactivated now, but not before she added: “People are willing to MURDER someone over a flag. It’s so sad that people don’t realize how brainwashed they are. I’m gross for peeing on a symbol? LOOK AT YOURSELVES. You people epitomize all that is foul.”
Mad World News reports:
Lance isn’t the only one who is paying for her disrespectful act, either. Her father’s workplace has also been targeted as a result of her little stunt. “To whom it may concern, my Dad just called me and informed me that his place of employment has been targeted,” she wrote online. “As has he. Interestingly he respects THE FLAG and loves your country,” she added.
“I do not live with him nor does he or anyone in my family agree with my shenanigans. They’ve got nothing to do with my decisions,” Lance continued. “Don’t take your anger out on the wrong people – you harassing them is displacing your emotions and the equivalent of blaming Jack for what Sally did.”
If Lance hates America so much, she ought to pack up and move. It seems like there’d be more than a few people willing to help her on her way, and it doesn’t appear that her family will miss her much. A difference of opinion is one thing, but to so egregiously disrespect the flag, which men and women have fought and died for, takes matters too far. Now that Lance is receiving death threats, perhaps she finally understands what it’s like to put her life on the line for something.
I agree. If our country is so horrible, then why doesn’t she pack up and leave? We don’t want her here anymore than she wants to be here.
