The America-Haters Strike Again
Is everyone who doesn’t like this massive government a communist or a fascist? Is it impossible for a person to love America and hate her policies at the same time?
Or, are we supposed to accept that every single person under every single government ever to exist – including the victims of murderers like Stalin, Mussolini, Nero or Napoleon – hated their country because they hated the government that oppressed them?
Unfortunately, some people identify with the methods of these dictators. Take this love letter I received from “Ken”:
Your web site SUCKS .You are all traders and if this was 1952, You would all be shot.Get real you pieces of shit.
To these people, being patriotic is nothing more than showing obedience to those in power. Did Ken think the same way when other presidents were in office?
As far as these government-lovers are concerned, to oppose the federal machine is to hate America. To stand up against politicians who press for more spending, for more invasions of privacy, or for more invasions of other countries – is traitorous.
But, on the other hand, to be a cheerleader for all the bailouts, and mandates, for the wars and indefinite detention is being a good, patriotic American.
Obey little one. Obey.
For them, the government people are America. The president is America. The TSA is America.
