Why the Squad Hates America…

These are warped and bitter people.  Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and the Squad look at America and see what it is not, and may never be. Trump looks at America and sees what it is, and what it could become. That is the key difference. It doesn’t explain why they hate America.
Isn’t it the rather simple idea that hate gets into the newspapers? Love isn’t news because love is so common. Most people aren’t morally challanged like The Squad. Most people don’t hate like The Squad and most people won’t lie like The Squad. Does that make The Squad Evil?? You bet if does.
Trump, speaking from the Lincoln Memorial on July 4, said the story of America is “one of the greatest stories ever told … the epic tale of a great nation whose people have risked everything for what they know is right and what they know is true.” Hope he didn’t include The Squad with the people.
The president added: “Devotion to our founding ideals led American patriots to abolish the evil of slavery, secure civil rights, and expand the blessings of liberty to all Americans.”
Later, he said: “Throughout our history, our country has been made ever greater by citizens who risked it all for equality and justice.” He acknowledged the movement for women’s suffrage, and recognized Clarence Henderson, who led the famous sit-in at the Woolworth’s lunch counter in 1960.
Trump’s version of events noted America’s flaws. But it also allowed room for reconciliation, and growth — for “rededicat[ion]” to the country’s founding principles.
He also saw America’s story as far more than a history of internal struggle. He recounted the country’s contributions to the world in every field of endeavor — a nation that has “liberated continents, split the atom, and brought tyrants and empires to their knees,” even when imperfect at home.
But The Squad likens Trump’s immigration policies to the Nazi concentration camp, the worst evil in human history. They cannot explain why anyone would want to cross thousands of miles and surrender, often voluntarily, to Border Patrol, if America were so terrible. In fact America is great in part because we can tolerate mis-fits and haters like The Squad.

Random Stuff to Think about

ARE YOU “THE PROBLEM”? “If America is destroyed, it may be by Americans who salute the flag, sing the national anthem, march in patriotic parades, cheer Fourth of July speakers – normally good Americans, but Americans who fail to comprehend what is required to keep our country strong and free, Americans who have been lulled away into a false security.”
