The New England Patriots are champions again. I will be the first to admit that I usually root against their team, just like 70 percent of the United States, according to recent polls. As a Philadelphia native, it probably has a lot to do with jealousy of the amount of sports championships in the Boston area.

After the Super Bowl, there were many internet memes comparing Atlanta’s collapse in the game to the events of the 2016 presidential election. Winning by 25 points, they seemed to lose sight of their opponent’s ability and let the trophy slip through their fingers.

What made sense to me is that the Patriots, like the brave men that they are named after, prevailed after adversity. Is there a team name more appropriate in the NFL today? Many teams seem to think the best representation is some type of animal. But in our country’s short 250-year history, the Patriot best symbolizes coming out on top.

Donald Trump’s victory came on the backs and shoulders of millions of hard-working Americans across this country who, despite the accusations of racism by liberals, only want a safe country, with economic opportunity and less bowing down to political correctness.

Like the original American Patriots, today’s freedom loving citizens have had enough of the oppression, not from a king this time, but from a relentless liberal media that pushes a leftist, politically correct agenda on our beautiful country. Just like the Redcoats, their projection of power does not compare to the strength of the Patriot resolve to keep this Republic free.

In the months leading up to the election, it seemed like Hillary Clinton’s presidency was just a matter of going through the motions of voting. Although the polls were tightening, the leftists and media assured themselves of victory. Knowing that a Clinton appointee would tip the Supreme Court to a balance that would never return to conservatism, American loving men and women marched to the polls to pull that lever for the one candidate who could beat Hillary. In the face of certain defeat, we stood tall and each did our part, and the outcome should never have been in question.

On the morning of November 9, 2016, Democrats and leftists could not believe what just happened. They must have felt like British General Cornwallis did on October 19, 1781, when he surrendered to Washington at Yorktown. At least our Revolutionary War opponents realized that the American people had acted and defeated them. The reaction so far in 2017, since President Trump was inaugurated, has been protests, riots, and the outright refusal to acknowledge the loss.

Like the Revolutionary War, Super Bowl LI should hold as an example to all Americans today. It does not matter how much we are resented, by foreign powers or the Tories of our day. It shouldn’t matter how great the odds may seem against us. We must continue to fight for our freedom against the tyranny of leftism, political correctness, and the globalists. We must push forward and stay strong, like the brave men who gave us the very freedom we must now defend.
