Americans who think they love America but shit all over everything it means to be American!

Published by at 3:00 am under Why?!?

I am going to do my best not to climb too high atop my soapbox and ramble endlessly on this subject, but holy shit does it make me insane when “patriotic” Americans completely ignore the principles that America was founded on.

Did you hear about this guy, Bradford Campeau-Laurion, who was kicked out of Yankee Stadium because he needed to take a leak during the singing of “God Bless America?” I understand that he has a “foriegn” sounding name and telling the cop “he didn’t care about God Bless America” was a bit risky, but fuck off, the whole point of America is that YOU CAN PISS DURING GOD BLESS AMERICA IF YOU FEEL LIKE IT! In fact, go ahead and take a dump and get some nachos if you want, you’re in America!

I would suggest if you claim to love America so much you should, at the very least, have a basic understanding of our most basic concept, freedom.

    Hear hear. On a semi-related note, Americans who tell French people they would all be speaking German if not for the last-minute rescue, all the while forgetting that they might still be paying taxes to the British Crown if not for the French a few hundred years earlier.

    deadlytoque, I know what you mean. It almost seems like the less a person knows about history and/or the world around them then more blindly patriotic they are. There tends to be a lot of childlike patriotism in this country. I LOVE MOMMY, MOMMY IS BEST!

    I am not at all against patriotism and I don’t hate America, I just can’t stand people who claim to be America’s biggest fan but have a total lack of respect for the principles the country was founded on.

    You’ve hit the nail-on-the-head right there. The USA has some of the most impressive founding principles of any nation, and that’s no small feat. And yet somehow, a country founded on ideas of freedom, tolerance, and federalism, is best-loved by people who hate anyone remotely different, and who have dreams of empire.

    This is easily the most well thoughtout analysis that I have ever read. And that is sad.
    I live in the state of Florida. Less than a year back, some asshole in the state decided it was alright to publicly fly a rebel flag at the entrance to the state along a popular and high traffic state highway.

    When did it become acceptable in the united states to embrace the flag of a force that we actually FOUGHT AGAINST. I’m not saying ban anything. But its sad that the mentality of Americans is to condemn anything different and warmly welcome a history that most of them dont know about anyways.

    Our flag is the American flag. The stars and stripes. Yet it seems that most “patriots” would rather fly a rebel one. Faggots.
