I’m an anti-American American, I guess.
Not long ago, opposing the President was considered un-American. Now, supporting the President is un-American. Blood for Oil was patriotic; now, clean energy is treasonous. What the Tea Party calls “ObamaCare” is communist, even though the Bob Dole led Senate Republicans proposed the very same thing back in 1994. In fact, check out this post, which shows Barack Obama is even more conservative than Richard Nixon was.
Yet, I recently received this comment:
You Liberals are NOT of the body of America, much in the same way as an infection is in the body but not of it. You are, in point of fact, the domestic enemies I swore an oath to defend this country against.
We’ve been told, many times, that America is not a democracy, we’re a republic. Just like the People’s Republic of China and the former Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. Despite this truth, it was Republican George W. Bush’s doctrine to spread democracy, by force if necessary. His father’s dream was a one-world government – the New World Order – remember? Which of these leaders was a “domestic enemy”?
I don’t want to be an enemy of the state. I don’t even know when I became one. Hell, in high school, I won the Citizenship Award, and my beliefs are the same now as they were then. But that was a long, long, time ago…
