"Put Away the Flags"
It's the Fourth of July and the DUmmies are "patriotically" urging each other to "Put Away the Flags." They are so disgusted with the USA that they frown upon such displays of patriotism. The DUmmies are supported in this belief by left wing whacko, Howard Zinn, as you can see in this THREAD titled, "Put Away the Flags - Howard Zinn." Almost half the replies have been deleted so one can only imagine what extreme anti-American rants were worthy of not even being allowed in DUmmieland. So let us now watch the DUmmies tell each other to put away their flags in Bolshevik Red (but not White and Blue) while the commentary of your humble correspondent, lighting another firecracker beneath the DUmmie pretenses as usual, is in the [brackets]:
Put Away the Flags - Howard Zinn
[Oh, if he said so...we must, we MUST!]
Put Away the Flags
by Howard Zinn
On this July 4, we would do well to renounce nationalism and all its symbols: its flags, its pledges of allegiance, its anthems, its insistence in song that God must single out America to be blessed.
[Thanx Howie for expressing the TRUE feelings of the Left.]
Is not nationalism -- that devotion to a flag, an anthem, a boundary so fierce it engenders mass murder -- one of the great evils of our time, along with racism, along with religious hatred?
[Flying the flag leads to mass murder according to the bizarre Zinnian logic.]
These ways of thinking -- cultivated, nurtured, indoctrinated from childhood on -- have been useful to those in power, and deadly for those out of power.
[Flag flying as indoctrination. Um, can we question your patriotism NOW?]
National spirit can be benign in a country that is small and lacking both in military power and a hunger for expansion (Switzerland, Norway, Costa Rica and many more). But in a nation like ours -- huge, possessing thousands of weapons of mass destruction -- what might have been harmless pride becomes an arrogant nationalism dangerous to others and to ourselves.
[So it is okay for small countries to fly their flags but really horrible for the USA to do it. Meanwhile Zinn slams the USA with not a MENTION of the Islamo-fascists who are truly dangerous. And now on to the FAVORABLE DUmmie reaction to this article...]
I agree w/Howard. The thought of celebrating tomorrow makes me ill.
[Can we question your patriotism now?]
Zinn speaks for me. sadly, this is how I feel this year.
[This is how you feel EVERY year.]
I agree wholeheartedly with Howard! I haven't flown the flag since the psycho illegally invaded Iraq. I fly a PEACE flag ONLY. It stays up until we get the hell out of there.
[I have seen a lot of Pali flags at the "peace" demonstrations to the exclusion of American flags.]
Arrogant nationalism. That's the problem.......it's the sense of entitlement that is destructive.
[Like the sense of entitlement of claiming election victories even when you LOSE?]
You need to read some actual history of the American Revolution. Many of the founding fathers were not Christians. And Americans by and large do NOT trust Bush; alcoholics can never be trusted.
[YOU need to read some actual history of the American revolution. Such as how the revolution started as a protest AGAINST higher taxes.]
NOOOO! That is the worst possible things those of the left could do because it confirms the right's propaganda that the flag is theirs. It's the exact opposite thing those on the left should be doing. Wave the flag, Democrats, wave it proud!
[A pragmatic DUmmie who wants to fool people into thinking the leftists are really patriotic so he supports flying the flag...but only as a cynical PR ploy.]
I have no pride in my country today. I will not celebrate tomorrow in a big way.
[And don't forget to not enjoy the fireworks.]
