The biggest laugh of the 21st century is the assertion by the right-wing-wacks of America that they are patriots while those on the left are not. If anything, I’d say that it’s the opposite and far-right conservatives have proven to be, for the most part, rather treasonous.
They do everything they can to undermine the economic well-being of the vast majority of Americans — starting with the offshoring of jobs, continuing with corporate welfare, and ending with the attempt to remove every last safety net for the poor, disabled, and otherwise disadvantaged. They cultivate unnecessary wars, putting thousands of American service men’s/women’s lives at risk and plunging the country even deeper into debt. They aim to remove the sovereign rights and freedoms of 51 percent of the population (i.e., women). And they show no loyalty to or respect for the current President of the United States.
In just about every manner, they put politics and propaganda and their own greed and lust for power before the good of the country and its people.
So how exactly are they patriotic? Because they wave a flag? Because they say “god bless?”
Spare me. And excuse me while I gag.
