Texas Governor Greg Abbott Demolishes Australian Woman Triggered By American Flags: ‘Go Back To Australia’
Texas Governor Greg Abbott (R) responded to a video of an Australian woman complaining about an overabundance of American flags in America by suggesting she go back to her country.
In a video shared to TikTok, Mia Chloe wanders along a street complaining about the amount of stars and stripes she was seeing.
“I’m just gonna say it… there are too many American flags,” she said.
“They’re on houses. They’re on cars. Some are on couch cushions,” she continues to rant. “You’re the only country that I know that does this.”
Chloe tells viewers that the presence of the Australian flag is so fleeting in her country that she “could not tell you what it looks like.”
The American flag, by contrast, she believes she could draw by memory, a feat most elementary school children could match, what with its very difficult alternating 13 stripes and 50 stars.
“It’s enough,” she said. “Let’s stay humble.”
Australian girl doesn’t like that there are so many American flags in America:

Abbott Spits Fire At Anti-American Flag Australian Woman
Texas Governor Abbott issued a hilarious response to the anti-American flag woman from Australia on X, the social media platform formerly known as Twitter.
In fact, he stopped just sort of simply replying, “Bye, Felicia.”
“Go back to Australia,” he wrote.
The tweet was accompanied by eight American flag emojis.
Go back to Australia.

The Australian woman’s TikTok account has since been deactivated following backlash to her commentary.
Abbott’s wasn’t the only negative commentary directed her way, much of it echoing those same sentiments.
Conservative activist Scott Pressler wrote, “We will happily pay for a one-way airplane ticket back to Australia.”

“We’re not Australia babe. We’re the United States of America. Don’t like seeing our flag flying, go back home. We won’t miss you,” another person responded.

Liberals Triggered By The American Flag
Sorry to break it to this young Australian woman, but Americans aren’t going to take advice from a country that recently celebrated a “renewal in freedoms” following COVID lockdowns in which officials in one state announced vaccinated-only residents will soon be allowed “one hour” of extra recreational time.
Our lockdowns were bad. Yours were third-world-level tyranny.
They also offered up
prisons a “COVID quarantine facility” during the pandemic.
Hard to be patriotic and fly your flags proudly when knowing that’s what is in store every time officials want to assert control in your unarmed country.

The Australian woman’s response to a plethora of American flags is reminiscent of some other liberals who have been triggered by the flying of Old Glory.
Mara Gay, a member of the New York Times editorial board, said it was disturbing to see “dozens of American flags” flown by Donald Trump supporters during a visit to Long Island.

Gay later clarified that the flag itself wasn’t “disturbing” but rather, the notion that “Trump and many of his supporters have politicized the American flag.”
Patriotism isn’t political. It’s an indication of one’s love for their country.
If that falls predominantly on one side of the political aisle, then that says more about the opposing party.
Now is the time to support and share the sources you trust.
