Brace Yourself: You’re Going to be Offended!

offended
Offended much?

Well, it finally happened. I offended somebody simply by wearing my “Unapologetically American” T-shirt! I really don’t give a crap. If you are offended by someone who is proud of the country you are living in, you are the one with the problem. And besides, you can always move.

No, that’s not me in the T-shirt. I didn’t want to offend anyone!

That’s the T-shirt model from Ranger Up where I ordered the shirt sometime ago. And, this is not really a plug for the shirt or Ranger Up. I just wanted you to see exactly what it was this snowflake was offended by. But, if you want to order a shirt to see who you can offend, click here!

What really offends me is how people are now so easily offended!

I have just a couple of things to say about people who are that easily offended.

  • Being offended doesn’t make you right
  • If you are shocked by what I say, then you really have no clue as to who I am.
  • If you don’t care enough to learn about who I am, why should I waste anytime on you?

So, boys and girls, buck up … and put your adult underwear on. This country would not exist today if early explorers, our Founding Fathers, or those who fought to build and protect this great nation were offended every time they heard an opinion that differed from their own.

Put down your cocoa, turn loose that puppy, wipe away those tears, hitch up your britches, and get out into the real world. Develop some backbone and a thicker skin. You will be happier, healthier, and probably live longer.

And, that’s about all I have to say about that!

By the way, if I haven’t offended you so much that you are now quivering in your Nikes, on the verge of tears, and hear the cocoa calling your name, check out the cover to my new book and let me know what you think. Just click here!

  1. I am proud to be an American, but I could never get into the song by Lee Greenwood who writes about how he “Would defend her still today” and so far as I can at tell never served in the Armed Forces. He talks the talk but so far as I can tell never walked the walk. The “Love her or leave her” crowd acts like there is no room for criticism but if we don’t challenge ourselves to do better, we never progress–eg ending slavery, women’s suffrage, and the repeal of Prohibition. 🙂

    1. I agree! There is always room for improvement.

      That being said, there is not a country out there with a more impressively demonstrated history of soul-searching and improvement than the United States of America. The Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution are brilliantly drafted documents that both allowed and drove this change.

      From ending slavery, to women’s suffrage, to Civil Rights, to defending freedom around the planet, this Country has tried, and mostly with success, to be a force for good on this planet.

      It would be nice to hear a few of these “activists” acknowledge that once in a while … instead of the constant barrage of “America was never great … if you’re white you’re racist … we must apologize for our successes … if it offends me, you can’t say/do it … punish the rich” crap we are subjected to these days.

      Francis Scott Key was never a soldier either. He was a lawyer, author, and amateur poet. However, I am pretty sure he still loved this country … and, if push came to shove, would have given his life for it.

      I must admit, I like both the “Star-Spangled Banner” and “God Bless the USA.” 🙂
