View Full Version : Patriotism means cant, kitsch, jingoism

Somebody you know (I won't say who) just sent me this silliness—a person who knows better.
I just hate "Proud to Be an American" and everything else pop culture does. Anybody else willing to hate it with me?

HAH! Finally somebody said it.</span> So I'm not the only one? This is actually a great column on the right to travel and the burgeoning police state / police brutality.

Cue Lee Greenwood:
"I'm proud to be an American, where at least I know I'm free" –
a phrase that must qualify as one of the most puerile, "clap for
Tinkerbell"-style acts of self-delusion ever recorded. </font>

Occasionally I tune infor a few minutes to The Sean Hannity radio program. Preceeded by a wry smile, I softly laugh as it is as certain that the sun will rise in the morning,the first or second conversation with a caller goes like this.
Caller: " Sean you area great American. Keep doing what your doing because America needs a great American like you fighting for us."
Hannity: "Thank you, Joe, but let me tell you something, thatyou are a great American, and so is your wife. Your kids are going to be great Americans, for having great Americans as parents."
Caller Joe: " Thank you Sean, America is great because of great Americans like you. Sean, let me say again, you are a great American.'
Hannity: "See folks, this is why America is the greatest country on the earth. It is because of great Americans like Joe, that America has defeated Fascism, Communism and has stood up against Totalitarianism. Joe you are a great American."
Hannity: "Bob, you are on the air, thank you for being a great American."
Caller Bob: " Thank you Sean. I would like to read something that Russell Kirk once said a few years back, if that is ok?'
Hannity': "Russell who?"

Hahahaaaaa! So true -- the stuff is knee deep on that show and anything real quickly gets smacked away by the ungracious host. What a barbaric age in which a freak like Hannity can become famous, much less an adulated celeb.
Sean was very real at first, even winsome. I can't hear his whinnying, arrogant voice without still hearing the real Hannity beneath it. It all sounds like a put-on to me. It has to be. They simply told him they'd triple his pay and give him a luxury suite at Bilderberg meetings if he would become a hate-demon for Zion on radio and TV, and he did.
The more beastly you growl and the more rudely you shout down truth, the farhter you get in talk radio. It's freakish, unnatural and unhealthy for all concerned, especially since it's so programmed. Only in a gewish-dominated society! Nowhere else!

Thanks for breaking the ice, GS. I've hesitated to speak freely before for fear of being called a subversive or something; been pretty much disgusted with this hokum eversince Daddy Bush bamboozled us into the first Gulf War for Israel(if not before).
All this stuff might have been true, or partly true, circa 1950-1980, but the hot air for the last 20 years or sois now approaching incandescence.

Unrelated to the above, a juicy "Foundation for Defense of Democracies" find just posted here --
