Washington County in Maine is preparing to open Flagpole of Freedom Park, a park which, with a flagpole taller than the Empire State Building, will honor all of the nation’s veterans.
According to the official press release, Flagpole of Freedom Park is “[a] new kind of destination set to open for America’s 250th birthday on July 4th, 2026, Flagpole of Freedom Park will be located on 2,500 acres in Columbia Falls and will become the only place in the nation to honor all +/-24 million deceased veterans that have served this country since the Revolutionary War.”
The press release went on to add that “Standing taller than the Empire State Building, the flagpole will fly the largest American flag ever flown, symbolizing the commitment and sacrifice veterans make to protect America’s freedom. The Park will also humanize key events that have shaped American history with six living history museums, immersive tech-driven exhibits and a 4,000-seat venue for live performances.”
“Flagpole of Freedom Park will be the most significant patriotic destination in the country,” the park’s website says.
Continuing, the website adds that “Part national monument, part historical adventure, part immersive tech-driven museum, and part architectural wonder, this is a destination where we can all come together as simply Americans.”
Cathleen Pearl, Executive Director of the Military Women’s Memorial, spoke about the Flagpole of Freedom Park too, saying:
“This is something we can all rally behind. It’s not divisive. There are no parties, it really is just the symbol of unification.
Similarly, Chris Gardner, Chair of the Washington County Commissioners, spoke about the Flagpole of Freedom Park too, saying:
“[Maine’s] Washington County is fortunate to have such a national treasure in our backyard. Plans for this Park celebrate the character of this county without changing it – it will truly fit into the fabric of our community.”
Meanwhile, while Washington County honors the flag and America’s veterans, the crazies on the left are spitting on both.
U.S. Soccer’s board of directors, for example, repealed a 2017 policy requiring players to stand during the national anthem, in 2020 (following the death of St. Floyd of Fentanyl, of course) saying:
“We apologize to our players – especially our Black players – staff, fans, and all who support eradicating racism. Sports are a powerful platform for good, and we have not used our platform as effectively as we should have. We can do more on these specific issues and we will.”
Similarly, a NorthJersy Op-Ed attacked the conservative association with the flag, saying:
As the Jan. 6 hearings continue this week, who can forget the images of rioters who literally draped themselves in flags and then chanted of their desire to hang Vice President Mike Pence for his refusal to subvert the 2020 election? Former President Trump has embraced the flag as a symbol of his coalition.
But, hopefully, the spirit of Flagpole of Freedom park will prevail and Americans will keep honoring the flag rather than attacking it.
