I am done with you whiny little bitches. I am done with the idea that conservatives or Republicans have a fucking monopoly on patriotism. I’m fucking taking patriotism back!
You know who isn’t a US patriot? Someone who flies the Confederate flag. The Civil War was over 150 years ago and you lost. Let me just write that again because I get the feeling that you fragile fucking snowflakes haven’t really accepted this yet. You LOST. Your flag is not our flag. Your leaders are not our leaders. Your statues are not our statues and your monuments are not our fucking monuments. You cower behind the idea that keeping these things is important to our history as a country and that’s simply not true. This glorified memorabilia of yours doesn’t remember history, it praises the losing side. It praises the things that this country chose to let go of, and rightly so. We have plenty of things in this country that properly remember the history of the time. They’re called books. Maybe if you were a little more familiar with art and literature instead of believing that the cultured person’s passions and vices are a weakness, you’d realize this.
You tell liberals on a daily basis that they aren’t patriots. You use the fact that they don’t believe burning the flag should be illegal as your ammunition. You use the simple man’s agenda to mislabel an entire group of people just so that you can steal the idea for yourself and yourself alone.
Do you truly not understand the ideals this country was created under?
Or are you just still so upset that these ideals mean that you don’t have the upper hand that you would spit on the very idea of American values?
You claim our country is Judeo-Christian. You scream it into microphones and you write it on your Facebook page. You tout it like you fucking understand its origins. You don’t. George Orwell came up with that concept (in 1939, long after our founding father’s were dead). And it wasn’t being used as a fucking compliment.
You do know that we only added “under God” to the Pledge of Allegiance in 1954, right?! The founding father’s had NOTHING to do with that. This is the original:
“I pledge allegiance to my Flag and the Republic for which it stands, one nation, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”
And this was written incidentally by a socialist minister (Francis Bellamy), ya dicks.
In 1923, it became this:
“I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America and to the Republic for which it stands, one nation, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”
And it wasn’t until our fear of communism came along in 1954 (which none of you people seem to have a problem with anymore) that Eisenhower asked congress to add the “under God” section.
This country was founded on freedom. It was founded on liberty and justice for fucking ALL motherfuckers.
Now, that doesn’t mean that we haven’t had some fairly huge missteps. That doesn’t mean that we’ve always lived these morals the way that we should have. We’ve made major mistakes. But you trying to make those mistakes our actual value system is hateful, deplorable and embarrassingly ignorant.
You tell liberals and progressives and that if they don’t like this country, they can go ahead and leave it but it seems to me that you’re the ones who don’t like this country. You’re the ones who are trying to change the country to fit your values. You’re the ones trying to put your beliefs into the fabric of a country that’s already been woven.
You’ve added God to our Pledge. You’ve added God to our money. You’ve made your religion the backbone of your political arguments. And all the while freedom of religion and separation of church and state is fucking fundamental to the foundation of our country.
The building blocks of this country are what we and the rest of the world view as true freedom. The ideals of the founding fathers are what we think of when we think of liberty and justice for all.
The goal of our country should be to continually get closer and closer to those ideals and to use these ideals as a basis for how we respond to our environment. And you, the self-proclaimed patriot, have done absolutely nothing to honor these ideas. The only amendment you seem to care about is the one that gives you guns.
You’re blatantly selfish.
You’re paralyzingly ignorant.
You’re inexcusably greedy.
You’re blindingly hate-filled.
And you’re just plain wrong.
You shout about fucking patriotism while you fly flags that are the polar opposite of patriotic. You holler until your voice is hoarse about a liberal or progressive agenda being unAmerican while you throw temper tantrums over the removal of your monuments and statues that celebrate unAmerican values.
Do you even understand what it means to be a true American? Can you even comprehend the real values that built this country?
You want to make America great again by abandoning American values, you stupid, stupid fuck.
We’re done listening to the white noise of a people (yes, pun very much intended) who can’t even begin to understand the irony of their backwards, contradictory ideas. You think there’s any pride to be taken in being a fucking fool? You think there’s merit in being willfully ignorant and stubbornly stupid? You think that’s American?
Cause it’s not.
America is about freedom. America is about freedom and liberty and fucking justice. America is about equality and giving a finger to authority figures who try to take all of these things away from us.
And that includes the police. A true American believes that just because someone wears a uniform and a badge doesn’t mean that they get to modify our ideals to their liking. It doesn’t mean they get to shoot first and ask questions later. That is NOT their job. Their job is, quite plainly, to SERVE and PROTECT all people, not just themselves. And if they don’t like that, they don’t have to do that job. Sure, Blue Lives Matter but not any more than any other fucking life in this country and making it seem like they are is decidedly unAmerican.
Freedom for all. Justice for everyone. Liberty for the masses. And equality for all our people indiscriminately. THAT is America.
And if you don’t like it…if you can’t be the patriot that our country deserves…YOU, you confederate flag waving, Jim Crow-loving motherfucker, can get the fuck out.
