This just exposes your stupidity. Believing that America is the greatest country in the world doesn't equate to believing that Americans are superior to all other people. That's just dumb.


Interesting. So your argument is that I am stupid.

I guess I do not understand the word 'great', as you use it. And at least in this latest comment, your words seem patriotic, not nationalistic.

Which are you then?

Then how can you say "Believing that America is the greatest country in the world doesn't equate to believing that Americans are superior to all other people."

If you are nationalistic, then you DO believe Americans are better. Or maybe you define nationalism differently.

You seem to be contradicting yourself, or, as you say, I may just be stupid, but either way, my intent is to understand. Please humor my idiocy.

It's disturbing that something so laden with strawmen and featuring such a strong emphasis on "foreign entanglements" as representative of patriotism could be mistaken for liberal.  The gulf widens.

Yes, I heard about this. Just goes to show McLame’s true loyalties. Hopefully, Trump won’t go to his funeral very, very soon.

I'll try but it might be beyond my ability. Insulting is "like 90% of what I do here."

That libs hate nationalism partly stems from the 20th century ideology of their political cousins, the communists, who de-emphasized nation states and identity as an impediment to world-wide communism.  Another part is from their deep-seated hatred of America and is institutions:  It's constitution - particularly the bill of rights, its rule of law, its police, its military, its religions, its white people, its economic system, etc etc.  Since they now effectively want to abolish its borders, they want to end its very existence.  They can be counted on to support the foreign side in any conflict between the US and an external entity.  They have a big love for corrupt/evil international organizations like the UN.  They are antipatriots and antinationalists.

Wow. As usual, you are describing yourself. I think you are crazy, but as an American who DOES believe in our constitution, I would die to protect your right to believe in the crazy things you do.

Wow! You're a nut case.  The libs have opposed the 1st Amendment free expression and religious exercise clauses.  They've fought forever against the 2nd Amendment.  They oppose the 14th Amendment equal protection clauses and citizenship clauses.  They've fought hard to weaken the 10th Amendment.  They've bitched and moaned about the Constitutionally-mandated Electoral College.

YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT.

We are lucky and we can thank our founding fathers. We have a great system that people in shithole countries should adopt.


Like NK and Japan did.
