Lefties Having Fits Over The “Is Obama Patriotic?” Issue

IMPORTANT ACTION ALERTS are sure to show up soon. Apparently, CNN and the Associated Press are now “right wing hacks” for wondering about something the Left feels should not be an issue: is Obama patriotic. As most of you on the right know, patriotism is simply a love of country. The Left doesn’t particularly like America, ergo, they are not patriotic and cannot be, because, dissent is not the highest form of patriotism when one starts with the position that America truly sucks. Their leading presidential candidate seems to feel the same way.

Glenn Greenwald

Far more notable is Barack Obama’s response to these depressingly familiar attacks. In response, he’s not scurrying around slapping flags all over himself or belting out the National Anthem, nor is he apologizing for not wearing lapels, nor is he defensively trying to prove that – just like his Republican accusers – he, too, is a patriot, honestly. He’s not on the defensive at all. Instead, he’s swatting away these slurs with the dismissive contempt they deserve, and then eagerly and aggressively engaging the debate on offense because he’s confident, rather than insecure, about his position

Republicans do not have to defensively prove they love America. Democrats do. They d not do it too well, either.

Crooks and Liars

Obama responds to CNN’s smear: Join In against ‘right wing hack attacks’. Obama responds to the new smear campaign against him quite deftly. CNN and the AP should be ashamed of themselves. I didn’t know lapel pins were so important to national security.

Actually, they are, when one is running for president of the USA, and some of us are concerned with electing a president who does not like the country he wants to be president of.

American Street

It became clear yesterday that the GOP plans to attack Obama as an unpatriotic candidate in the general election, based on silly measures of what that means. So the video for the day – which I can’t embed – can be found at the link below.

Bang the Drum goes on about his Grandma being in Kabul in the 70’s, wearing traditional garb. Here she is in Afghani garb. Challenge her patriotism or give her credit for being open others’ cultures and customs. If you choose the latter, you’re right. Probably. Because they are two completely different things that BtD is speaking about.

Daily Kos:

I’m sure by now you’ve all seen the odious article by Nedra Pickler of the AP concerning Barack Obama’s supposed lack of patriotism, as defined by flag lapel pins.  As Shane Hensinger pointed out, this is the same Nedra Pickler who has consistently repeated right-wing talking points and inserted them into the AP wire.

Shane’s diary included an action tool to contact the AP and MSNBC about their Cavuto Mark question about Obama’s patriotism, but that is not enough.

Wait for it, here it comes!

skippy the bush kangaroo:

action alert: tell the asspress they are

jane at fdl has an action alert to let the asspress know that it’s not ok to question obama’s patriotism at the behest of the gop:

Bwahahahahahaha! Check out her “contact the media over this right wing smear” page. Hilarious!

Notice two things: 1st, the Left doesn’t like when the media goes after them, and typically goes ballistic. They should toughen up, take off the silk boxers and penny loafers, and grow some cajones.

Second, none of those mentioned actually, you know, defended Barack Obama. Some like Bang the Drum made a weird connection with his Gradma (who seems like a pretty cool lady, but, didn’t mean a thing towards discussing Obama’s, or her’s, patriotism.) But none of them can really defend his actions as patriotic. His love of country.

We all have loved ones. Friends, parents, siblings, children, spouses, girlfriends or boyfriends. They all have faults, which may annoy us and drive us nuts. But, we still love them, right? That is what patriotism is, but for country. Liberals are simply at the point of divorce, hating the ex, but mouthing empty platitudes about “still loving the bitch/bastard,” and promising to be friends. Then cutting their break lines.

    The level of maturity in some of these comments (from both sides) is really sad. What exactly are we debating here?

    Right: “Liberals don’t love America.”

    Left: “Yes we do!”

    Right: “Well, some of you don’t.”

    Left: “You’re stupid!”

    Right: “No, you’re stupid!”

    Do you guys even hear yourselves? You are all arguing against a caricature of the other side and reinforcing all the worst stereotypes in the process. No ideas were advanced here only more narrow-minded prejudices.

    Jeff was LUCKY ~UF93~ didn’t land on HIM on 9-11-01 like it was supposed to? Or on Biden, Ted Kennedy, etc. eh? Speak for yourself Mr. Pompous Jeffrey… The left-wingbats are from Uranus – period. In nine more months the 31 Red States of America and true God fearing Christian evangelicals will put McCain and VP Romney in the White House…no doubt about it. If all the left can come up with are HIPS ‘N Q-TIPS in 2008…. Lady Liberty and Uncle Sam and our Republic are in good shape… Go to your room Jeff and no dessert nor CNN after 10 pm….”Never estimate the power of the RIGHT side!”

  3. darthcrUSAderworldtour2007 says:

    PS: The Demlibloonies said last year “..We lost this war.” And now these same yellow coat leftards are actually pronouncing the word PATRIOTISM? Talk about blasphemy, eh?
    In an islamofascist caliphate the leftwing kooks would be the first infidels decapitated… too bad, eh? Hollywood, Las Vegas and Atlantic City would lose some… business?

  4. tommo says:

    “The Left doesn’t particularly like America….”

    How dare you motherf#cking piece of sh!t. Just because you and Baghdad Bush have done everything in your power to damage the nation we love, means you, he and your ilk are the traitors.

    And once again you’ve been lied to and made a fool of by your Fearless Leader and other wingnuts. Obama did not put his hand over his heart for “God Bless America”. Bunch of ignorant lying bitter rednecked whores.

  5. ibfamous says:

    darthcrUSAderworldtour2007… is that you Mr. Vice President?

  6. Johnny says:

    Wow. The intellectual vacuity of right-wing posters here is so…Par for the course: People who don’t agree with gutting the constitution, establishing religion in schools and government, lying to and spying on American citizens, sending our fine soldiers to die in a needless and ill-managed war, or politicizing 9/11 must be unpatriotic traitors! Boy, that’s some deep thought, you “party of ideas”.
    And, of course, supporting all the above while wearing a flag pin must mean you’re a patriot, never mind that even with said lapel pin your support for such un-American activities has enabled the current mess. This knee-jerk submission to “authority” is about the furthest thing from what our founding fathers ever imagined.
    I know the paranoid tradition in American politics has a long history, but its negative consequences, by now, ought to be rather self-evident. My mother, an Oklahoma Republican, even conceded the other day, after inexplicably voting for him twice: “Bush has been a disaster.”

  7. Spare says:

    I think liberals are ashamed to say they love America because years of blowhard politicians conflating themselves with America. And if I may level a criticism at conservatives: You’ve turned Patriotism into idolatry with your constant brandishing of red white & blue merchandise.

    America is a land and a people. I love them both.

    Washington DC and its occupants are a bureaucracy who mismanage my money. I don’t love them. Guess that means I’m an America-hater. Curse my liberal views.

  8. darthcrUSAderworldtour2007 says:

    Hey Demlibloonies and yellow coat anti-American kooks ‘r us, Jesus was referring to YOU when he hung on his cross and said, “FATHER….Forgive them for they know NOT what they do!” The liberals get… emotional and love to CURSE when the TRUTH is spoken! I LOVE IT and like the Alan Parson’s Project I ROBOT classic sings, ” I AM the eye in the sky…I can read your mind…!”
    Teach, WE are the Scotty Steven’s DEFENSEMEN in this fight to write the right sir…. When the 19 blue states of socialism get…. emotional…WE WIN! “Ten minute penalty to Team Looney for unsportsman like conduct and a game misconduct!”
    Nj Devil Conservatives – 1
    Demlibloonies ‘r us – 0
    GO Conservative Pirates, NY Giants & NJ Devils!!! Both the Nj Devils and NY Giants now have three Stanley Cups and three Super Bowl championships…. How SWEET it is….

    Darth is RIGHT. Islamofascist head choppers and throat slitters would have a blood fest if they established their islamo caliphate over here. No more Hollyweirdos, nor feminazis, nor pedo predators, nor rapists, nor cable tv filth channels… and PRAYER back IN the public schools FIVE TIMES A DAY? And four wives each? Hmmmmmmmmm?
    “It’s beginning to look a lot like Ramadan, every where we go?” I would miss your tasteful Sunday Pinups Teach for they would have to be portrayed with BURKAS, eh?
    – It’s all about cool crisp water and bodily fluids…. H20 shaken not stirred…
    — “Say goodbye to Hollywood. Say goodbye my baby?” Love that Billy Joel but no more rock n roll in the caliphate, remember?

    “Is that you Jihad Johnny? How was the Taliban RETREAT in Afghanistan last summer? How’s your Quran 101 on-line class coming along?”

  11. wmforr says:

    If you’re worried about patriotism, how about

    IS GEORGE W. BUSH SUFFICIENTLY PATRIOTIC?

    Well, after he has decimated our armed forces, put the country in hock to China, castrated all Federal regulatory agencies, sent our soldiers into battle without proper protective equipment, flagrantly violated the Constitution and publicly claimed the right to violate any law with impunity, earned America the contempt of the entire world, …

    I suppose all this matters little. George wears a lapel pin. End of argument.

  12. Snooper says:

    I see the libtards are still having a difficult time answering #1. Amazing.

  13. darthcrUSAderworldtour2007 says:

    I admire your righteous logic Snooper! Wanna tick off the Defeatocraps? Tell them this fact sir: “Impeached Bubba Clinton, former Perv in Chief, is the Defeatocraps ONLY re-elected two term U.S. President since FDR during World War II in 1944!” They go berserk when you tell them this Death Star II factoid sir!!
    1944? 1944? 1944? 1944?
    Another factoid is when Q-TIPS Hussein Obama speaks at his rallies, and the same for Senaturd Hitlery Rotten Clinton, take a look at the left-wing moonbats BEHIND them! That is the scarey thing sir. Like the warewolve freaks transforming in church during the movie Silver Bullet?

  14. Snooper says:

    The Leftinistra, the armies of the socialist democrat, suck.

    They have ZERO constitutional basis for ANY of their socialist programs…PERIOD!

  15. darthcrUSAderworldtour2007 says:

    Demlibloonies do not know the words to the Pledge of Allegiance, nor to the Star Spangled Banner, nor that our blessed nation was founded through Divine Providence on religion, morals, courage and knowledge. If an islamofascist caliphate was established here, THEY would be the first ones executed because if they don’t believe in God, then they certainly wouldn’t believe in … Allah!

  16. darthcrUSAderworldtour2007 says:

    “Comrade Tommo Cat: Come out… come out… come out wherever you are? I don’t like it when you talk dirty and curse… naughty…naughty…naughty liberal thou art?”

  17. Snooper says:

    Ironic, isn’t it? The Leftinistra, in their state of clueless bliss, do not know they are being used as a useful fool for Sha’ria law. CAIR has said that Sha’ria Law will come to the US by 2050.

    The Leftinistra will be the first to feel the sword of allah.
