I might have mentioned this before, but it’s worth mentioning again: if you want to know what got me actively working on a political campaign last year, it was the cumulative “final straw” effect of some Congressional Republicans who saw fit to question the “Americanism” and “patriotism” of their political opponents. Well, I’m definitely an opponent of the Republicans, and I was really, really, really sick of having my patriotism and commitment to America questioned, so I finally got off my butt and started to work for change.
I mention this because I just found the following gem of a quote over at Comrade PhysioProf’s place. I’ve redacted a few words in the interests of family friendliness and workplace readability, so feel free to take a look over there to get the full effect:
The dude has overf—ingwhelming majorities in both chambers and he “needs to convince Republicans blah, blah, blah”!?!? What he “needs to do” is tell those America-hating neo-feudal s–theels to sit down and shut the f— up and take their goddam motherf—ing medicine.
We’ve got no right to expect the right wing to stop calling us anti-American if we’re going to turn around and talk about how much they hate America. And it would be really nice if they stopped calling us anti-American.
