Are Democrats more Anti-American that Republicans? Yes. Does that mean they're less American? No. Look, you can't have dozens (or more) examples of being for undermining the nation or our interests (foreign or domestic), mocking patriotism (jingoism), degrading religion and traditions, the Constitution, the rule of law, our founders, the flag, the pledge, our music, not knowing or taking pride in our History, and values, and Holidays, and way of life, being for internationalism (diluting our independence), being against the capitalism (that made us great), make excuses for or supporting our enemies (or those that degrade us), hating even the term "American Exceptionalism" (without admitting what it is, or that it exists), and dividing us by intersectional victimhood status instead of being proud of our blending and common interest in the American Dream... and then after all that, claim you love the country.... well, I guess you can. But no one should take you seriously.
The left (progressives) don't love the country for what it is, or was, or even will be... they only love it for what they hope to change it into. They're the girlfriend that loves you and all -- but only as a potential project, to mold into something that they truly can be proud of. And since nothing can live up to their expectations, they really love your failure, which allows them to feel superior. But that's not loving America, that's more loving the ideal of the Progressive USSA.
|Anti-American||The left claims to love America on one hand, and that's why they criticize it continuously on the other. It's racist, sexist, imperialist, capitalist (spit, ptooey), minority killing, gun toting, inequality, full of ignorance, God, Guns and bigots. Protests against liberty, gays in assless chaps, wars (national interests), foreigners waving foreign flags and demanding the end to America as a county? Those are all good. But protests against too much government waste, too high of taxes, regulation or government power (Tea baggers), or pro-lifers trying to protect viable infants from the abortionists canula and scissors, or just a wholesome 4th of July Parade celebrating Americana? Those are all bad. But they love America?||Of course the truth is that the left doesn't love America in a healthy way, and take pride in what we've done or are doing. Many feel unclean at signs of jingoism and patriotism. Think about it as if they are an abusive spouse -- you love them as they are, that's why you want to criticize them constantly, break them down and destroy their self-esteem, so that you can remold them into something else (better). That's not love, that's something else. They don't love what is, they love having something to criticize, vent at, and take their frustrations out on -- but will never meet their standards. But in trying to meet their standards, everyone would get a lot less freedom to be individuals.|
While of course I don't think all democrats are anti-American seditious traitors, I think you have to be blind or a fool to not recognize that the majority of the anti-patriotic, marxist/socialist, radical, let's burn the whole thing down and start over kind of radicals, and the ones most outraged by the status quo (what America is)... tend to be left wing. If there's a cause that's against societal American norms, it's not the conservatives championing it. lf you don't recognize that, then I don't think these examples will help, but I list them anyways (for the more rational that can be persuaded by evidence): Anti-American : 15 items
The left is enamored with authoritarianism and change ("progress"), and the Constitution/traditions/history/conservativsm is in the way, so they aren't really enemies of the nation -- just on the limits that those things represent.
Again, not all left leaning folks are anti-American. But most anti-Americans are left leaning. A lot is because leftism appeals to the young (and gullible) and many will mature out of it. Usually kids and a family makes men (and Women) less self-absorbed and left -- but some are highly resistant to growth or at least change. But whether they're self-aware, or fathom that we are all the sum of our actions or not -- they're still American. As anti-Americanism is as old as the revolution (and Tory sympathizers). And God bless them. Sometimes your purpose in life is to serve as a warning to others. So we need them to set that example, for the rest of us.
Are Democrats more Anti-American than Republicans, on most issues? Of course. That doesn't mean they aren't Americans, but they don't love the country for what it is, or was, they love themselves and their vision of being able to fix things (through tyranny and bullying) into America into becoming something better. Look at all the voices most willing to bash Americas past, present and future, based on a distorted view of a all three, and virtually all those voices are from the left. Here are some examples of them. more...
