Republicans Have Proven On Multiple Occasions That Their Loyalty Is Not With America

This column addresses patriotism more often than it should, but it is simply because over the past few years Republicans have demonstrated their loyalty and devotion to anyone except the American people or the nation itself. During the Viet Nam War, there was an oft-repeated phrase from conservatives that Americans who did not love America’s habit of perpetual war should get out. The implication was that opposing the war was supporting the enemy and therefore unpatriotic, but today, there is a tendency among Republicans to support foreign nations and leaders over the interests of this nation that clearly shows their patriotism is reserved for any nation other than America.

The idea of patriotic duty to one’s own country, and its citizens, has never caught on with Republicans, particularly Republicans loyal to foreign nations. Over the past five years, Republicans worked diligently to advance the economic interests of the Canadian oil industry and preserve Canada’s environment by pushing to build Canada’s leak-prone KeystoneXL pipeline across America, heaped inordinate praise on Russia’s homophobic religious right President Vladimir Putin, and of course, provided unwavering support, and untold sums of taxpayer dollars, to the nation where their true allegiance and patriotism lies; Israel. In fact, as mentioned here last week,“Supporting Israel unconditionally has become the hallmark of American patriotism, and questioning anything it does is of the Devil, treason, attacking god, anti-Semitic, assaulting the holy bible, and an affront to Christianity.”

....Republicans, and some Democrats, need to come clean with the American people and elucidate precisely where their loyalties lie and which country they swear allegiance to because it is increasingly clear it is not America. Whether it is supporting Canada’s oil industry and protecting their environment from the KeystoneXL pipeline, praising Russian President Putin’s anti-gay, religious right agenda and “patriotic” invasion of Ukraine, or Israel’s decades long refusal to seek a peaceful resolution and provide Palestinians with a homeland; there is no evidence Republican patriotism is for America or its people.

Apparently, Republican loyalty, patriotism, and unwavering support for the nation they love above all others is simply because Israel is the central theme of the bible’s Old Testament. If there is another reason, like something Israel has done to garner billions-of-dollars America gives them every year, it is time for Republicans to explain their Israeli patriotism. If they cannot, they should renounce their American citizenship, move to Israel, and join the inhumane war against Palestinians; but without American taxpayers’ assistance.

Liberals don't know the difference between adults and children and can't figure out which one they're supposed to act like. So the children run the show.

kinda funny how 'God's will' is a last resort.
Meanwhile US coal exports are at an all time high. Yep, our dirty coal is being shipped abroad where it will likely do more damage to the environment than if we used it here.

Much of it is being shipped out of Newport News VA__surprised that Flack hasn't put up a fifty page report about that.

Can it?
We went from the VA scandal, to ISIS and now the immigrant children in less than a month's time.
We can't spend more than a week on any one crisis at a time before another one takes its place.
Seems a little too suspicious to just be coincidental to me.
Of course Carol you're pathologically delusional and paranoid.

There ARE moderate Democrats who have common sense. None of them seem to be on here though.
HEY STUPID! It was liberals who decided to break away from England; conservatives were loyal to the Crown.
It was liberals who fought to end slavery; conservatives were just fine with owning other human beings.
It was liberals who fought for the right of women to vote; conservatives were against it.
Conservatives have been against child labor laws, workplace safety legislation and civil rights.
