NEWYou can now listen to FoxNews articles.

Fox News Digital showed them when they burned grills nationwide last weekend to celebrateIndependence Daywith American loved ones. I looked back on the experts and columnists. I'm not proud to live in the United States. 

The media and celebrities have a long history of defeating the symbols of America and democracy when trying to make political claims that condemn conservative ideologies. Last week, Green Day lead singer Billy Joe Armstrong said he would abandon US citizenship and move to the United Kingdom .

"F --- America, I have abandoned f --- citizenship," Armstrong said at a concert in London. "I'm here." 

But the candid rock star isn't the only liberal public figure to blame America, its flag, and its meaning. Recent memories have celebrated the pro-athletes who knelt during the national anthem, blamed the Supreme Court, and the liberals tried to redesign the American flag, completely downplaying the importance of July 4.

Last year, one of the most notable examples of recent memories is the New York Times. Mara Gay, a member of the editorial board of the editorial board, was shocked to declare that he had witnessed the "obtrusive" sight of the American flag when he went to MSNBC and visited Long Island in New York. 

A Times columnist appeared in "Morning Joe" and talked about how "Americanness" and "whiteness" need to be separated. 

"I was on Long Island this weekend visiting a really dear friend, and I was really worried," Gay said. "I saw dozens, dozens of pickup trucks, Trump flags, and sometimes dozens of American flags with [expletives] behind Joe Byden, which is also annoying. … In essence the message was clear.'This is my country. This is not your country. I own this. Gay swiftly on social media by blaming the American flag. Despite the backlash, critics were off-base, according to a statement released by the employer.

"Malagay's comments from New York Times editorial board members on MSNBC are irresponsible. It was out of context, "the Times said. "Her allegation was that Trump and many of his supporters politicized the American flag."

Co-host of View as a proud American accused the columnist. Sunny Hostin rushed to the gay defense.

"In fact, I'm very surprised she's getting this kind of backlash," Hostin said. "When someone in the color of being a black woman is telling you her feelings, people need to not deny it and not say,'Well, that's not true.'

A few weeks later, the New York Times released a work by staff writer Saramas Linnil. The July Symbol of Unity, which may no longer be united, is now about people Americans "prominently displaying the American flag." It's true, and sometimes it's wrong. "

The story featured a potato farmer who was "afraid of interaction" by customers because he proudly flew the American flag. 

"The 13 striped, star-studded American flag had endless meaning for 244 years after the country began flying. Growing up on Ioshima. With a lit fire, it became a scorching image of the protest against the Vietnam War. Ribbed around the Twin Towers at the commemorative September 11th Lapelpin, it was a delicate democracy. Reminds me of the threat to Maslin Nir. " "Political politicians from both parties have long sought to wear a flag, but something could have changed. Today, flying a flag behind a pickup truck or over the grass , Although imperfect, is increasingly seen as a clue to the political affiliation of people in deeply divided countries. "

This work continues as follows.

CNN's "New Day" aired some of the Times' work read directly from the article by liberal host Brianna Kayler. 

The New York Times published a piece by staff writer Sarah Maslin Nir headlined, "A Fourth of July Symbol of Unity That May No Longer Unite," which declared Americans "now make assumptions, true and sometimes false, about people who conspicuously display American flags."

Also last year, the Times published an opinion essay imagining a new design for the American flag. The decline of the country.

"The American flag is a powerful part of the country's symbol, but its design changed frequently until the early 1900s. What if it was redesigned today? To artists and graphic designers I had them try it, "the Times wrote. "Some are functional designs, some are artistic renderings. Some are American representations, others are how artists are currently looking at the country."

In one Andrew Kuo design, the flag is divided into four rectangles, one square consists of red and white stripes, and the other three are blue, yellow, and green rectangles. According to the artist, the red stripes represent the past, the white stripes represent the future, and the plain colors represent "unexplored potential," "restoration of racial discrimination throughout the body," and "care for the earth." increase. 

Another idea for the new American flag is to combine several prominent flags such as "Do n't Treadon Me" and "Black Lives Matter" into one and another monochrome gray. Represents a flag with a star. The United States has succumbed to the collapse of power and the loss of its former ideals.
