Day 98: Patriotism at the DNC

I’m really offended by the almost universal reaction among Our Liberal Media commentators that the 2016 Democratic Convention “looked and sounded like a Republican gathering” because there were American flags, US veterans and Gold Star parents, people who love our country and have sacrificed for us all.   The rich history of Philadelphia must have brought out the latent loyalty-to-country we Democrats have long concealed from our fellow Americans, or something….

It’s absurd.

Democrats have always loved our country: our proud dissent from some of the most misguided American policies in my lifetime has been the highest form of patriotism.  Yet you’d think Democrats just discovered love for country in 2016.  Not so: this simply illustrates that Our Liberal Media have long bought GOP accusations about Democrats hook, line, and sinker.  “Dissent is treason.”  Their wonder at our love of country says much more about their own inattention and willingness to accept GOP attitudes than it does about any evolution among Democratic patriots.

Excuse me, but your assumptions are showing.
