Patriotism Isn’t Quite Dead In America
Bill Quick

Play this for you progtard friends until their heads explode.

I defy you to watch it all the way through without your eyes becoming strangely damp.

And one more thing: When one of your progtard friends watches this and then sneers, “You know, patriotism is the last refuge of scoundrels,” you just smile politely, consider those endless rows of white crosses in the real last refuges of American patriotism, and say sweetly, “Fuck you, you America-hating commie scumbag.”

Here’s another version:

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.

Patriotism Isn’t Quite Dead In America — 5 Comments

  1. Re the meat of the post: Call me laconic, but “Fuck you, you America-hating commie scumbag.” is too verbose. “Fuck you” accompanied by an elbow in the teeth is more succinct, and is more than the sanctimonious douchebag deserves. (Actually, the Laconians would have considered me a blatherer. They’d have just stabbed him without a word.)

    Re the technicalities of the post: the second embed had a URL of “chrome://whatever” rather than “http://whatever”. I’ve noticed this a couple times. Whatever widget you use for capturing and pasting might need a configuration tweak. (Or maybe you fat-finger once in a while, but I’m too polite and discreet to suggest that…)

      • Is WordPress configurable to automatically apply a configurable list of edits when saving? eg, always change “chrome:” to “http:”? Or is there a WordPress plugin to do that? It seems that this class of problem would not be limited to you, and that someone’s probably done something to help with it; the only questions would be finding it and whether the solution fits your needs.

  2. “You know, patriotism is the last refuge of scoundrels…”

    Only when genuine scoundrels* attempt the misuse of “patriotism” as a shield against the punishment they so richly deserve…such as what is implicit in SCOAMF Barky’s every public appearance in the fact that there is invariably an American flag prominent, and generally some version of the Presidential Seal on display as well.

    (*The term “scoundrels” being, of course, much too polite for what an inDUHvidual like SCOAMF Barky actually is.)
