People Who Just Don’t Get It

Over at Sir Lawrence of Auster’s site, they are complaining about a suburban high school being named after a gay black Communist. That’s not what America is about! is the outraged cry.

But, yes, in fact, it is what America is all about. White men did in fact die in World War II and Korea to ensure just this result. The US was an formal ally of the Soviet Union, and Josef Stalin, before, during, and after World War II.

As Foseti said, people complaining about the US acting like a Puritan, progressive country don’t realize it is a Puritan, progressive country.

About thrasymachus33308

I like fast cars, fast women and southern-fried rock. I have an ongoing beef with George Orwell. I take my name from a character in Plato's "Republic" who was exasperated with the kind of turgid BS that passed for deep thought and political discourse in that time and place, just as I am today. The character, whose name means "fierce fighter" was based on a real person but nobody knows for sure what his actual political beliefs were. I take my pseudonym from a character in an Adam Sandler song who was a obnoxious jerk who pissed off everybody.

    Man, these people live in the past. America is what it is today. We’ve got to get rid of this old notions.

  2. “Also, notice that his Communist Party membership lasted until 1941. Meaning that he was such a devout Stalinist that he supported the 1939 Hitler-Stalin pact which enabled Hitler to invade Poland and start World War II.”

    And the sin in Auster’s eyes for being a communist? It makes you insufficiently anti-Nazi.

    This guy is supposed to be on the right?

    Disingenuous or ignorant libertarian:

    Buchanan tiptoes around the unpleasantness wafting from his own stances; at one point, he even claims that mixing too many cultures in one nation is dangerous precisely because it rouses ugly and possibly violent xenophobia. Really, Pat? A big problem with diversity is it brings out the worst in bigots?

    Does this guy know anything about the history of (as an example) the Austro-Hungarian Empire?

    Brilliant, sir!

  5. It seems to me that this ideal is inherent to democracy, or the notion that we’re all equal, more than specific to a geographic area like America.
