Speaking at a conference held in Pasadena, Calif., John Kerry said to youths of the U.S. - Either you're smart and go to college or you are stupid, ignorant white-trash that end up serving our country in Iraq.
Something to the effect of, as the headline states:
"Either you are smart, or you end up in Iraq."
This liberal elitism is endemic of just how backwards liberal patriotism is.
It may sound hard to believe, but the left actively dislikes, outright hates and covertly fights the police (i.e., the domestic military in a sense). They see the headlines on T.V. - active duty police officers, slain by some black/ethnic just the previous night - ALL THE TIME.
Yet the left still regards police, and more importantly the military, as the enemy. As all of the cliche's which might spring to mind.
I was unfortunate enough to attend the initial Iraq Military Intervention protest back before we toppled Hussein the 1st. There was an overwhelming sense permeating through the crowd:
The anti-riot police, the military, right wingers in general - are THE BAD GUYS.
So how is it not, dear liberal, likely - as Rush Limbaugh commented today on 106.1 - that Obama and his regime of crony socialists/communists, how is it not likely he feels the fall of Iraq to Isis is - if not a desirable thing - at least an advantageous thing.
Remember, he campaigned in 2008 on an anti-war ticket.
He has, as is known to the public, been at very least snide to military officials and at worst has actively undermined them.
I say, the patriotism of the left is in serious question.
can fascism, really, be patriotic?
The answer, according to a respected source, is no.
And with the, as I'll phrase it, "embellished patriotism" of the left-as-such, what we really do find is - in a sense - fascism towards those who serve our country honorably, dutifully and diligently.
Vote Repub in 2014, and rest assured the constitution will come first!
