In years gone by you could find patriots in both the Democrat and Republican parties. Not so today. Unfortunately, the Democrats are being led by people who have no sense of patriotism, no sense of decorum, and no common sense. They have exerted all their efforts in looking at our country in a negative manner.
Too many are Marxists, Progressives, and Globalists, who don’t seem to have the love and allegiance to America and the American way of life. Their sympathies and concerns are with illegal immigrants and Muslim “refugees” who show no allegiance to the United States of America. The illegals could care less and are here for the freebies. The Muslims also like the freebies but many are here for a more sinister purpose. Their goal is to initiate Sharia law and eventually create a caliphate in America. So, forget any love for their host country or any allegiance to it.
The Democrat party is headed for the cliff and going at 100 miles per hour. The rank and file are following like lemmings to the sea. So, don’t look for any patriotism in the Liberal sector.
Our educational system is producing young people who have not been educated, but have been indoctrinated. They’re not being taught the facts about American history and they are distorting it and rewriting it to foster the Socialist agenda of the Progressives. The educators are also going along with the Muslims who are pushing Islam while spreading lies about Israel and promoting hatred for our own country. This generation of young people have not learned to think for themselves or have any original thoughts because they have been brainwashed and taught to hate. They will not be equipped to make sure that our freedoms, culture and traditions are preserved in the future. Then these kids go on to college and we find that Academia has become a cesspool of Marxist, Progressive behavior. A dissenting voice is not welcomed and students are given low or flunking grades if they disagree with their ultra-Liberal professors. Therefore, don’t look for patriotism from this group.
Political correctness has become rampant to the point of absurdity. The Liberals put it above common sense, safety, and any other factors. It is used constantly to push forward their agenda. This doesn’t foster patriotism either.
Liberalism has morphed into an unrecognizable, miserable, entity. P.J. O’Rourke has said that “Liberalism is a philosophy of sniveling brats. At the core of Liberalism is the spoiled child…miserable as all spoiled children are, unsatisfied, demanding, ill-disciplined, despotic, and useless.” Civility is gone in this country, because the liberals attack their opponents with sleazy remarks on a personal level and in a very nasty manner. They spend a tremendous amount of time blasting everyone and anyone who does not agree with their agenda. Patriotism will not be found here either.
Let us not forget the mainstream media, which used to be the honorable fourth estate. These days there’s nothing honorable emanating from them because they have become the propaganda arm of the Democrat party and all their Liberal buddies. There will definitely be no patriotism shown here either.
Last word: how sad that so many have profited from all the opportunities and freedoms they have enjoyed in this country, but do not choose to love and honor our great United States of America. Patriotism needs to be revived and cherished.
