Why does the right hate Americans?
Quote of the day goes to The Carpetbagger Report from this post on Glenn Beck, the latest wrongwing critic to disparage his fellow citizens.
To hear Beck explain it, Americans are awful. We are immoral. We deserve to be reviled. Those nasty things said about us in the Middle East are all true.One of the greatest mysteries of the current political climate is how these hatemongers have been allowed to wrap themselves in the mantle of patriotism while simultaneously doing everything in their power to destroy those citizens who hold opposing views. I can't think of anything more unAmerican.
And somehow, we’re told that the left isn’t patriotic enough? Someone really ought to remind conservatives like Beck that you can’t love America if you hate Americans.
