The New York Times “opinion team” has celebrated the 4th of July by running an “America is crappy!” essay (https://www.foxnews.com/entertainment/new-york-times-opinion-team-declares-america-isnt-so-great-were-just-ok).
They concede we’re still a little better off than North Korea, but way behind the enlightened socialist countries of Western Europe–some of whom, by the way, had to give up socialism years ago. We’re certainly not great! That’s why the piece bears the headline, “Please Stop Telling Me America is Great.” When we all know it’s only “just OK.”
The writer derides the notion that “we have freedom” in America. Other countries are free, and freer than ours, he babbles. He then lists a bunch of countries Hitler conquered during World War II, or would have conquered but for America’s intervention that today would be captive nations enslaved by the Third Reich, but for American sacrifice, courage, and power. And even today, most of those “free” countries are avidly expanding their list of thought crimes for which they can toss you into prison.
Yeahbut, yeahbut, yeahbut–we’ve got income inequality! Don’t you realize there are poor people in America? (Who, incidentally, have cell phones and color TV.) And we’re not solving Climbit Change and we make fun of Science and damnitdamnitdamnit we don’t have Hillary Clinton for our president!!!
On second thought, no, we’re not okay! We were never any good and we never will be–not until there’s global government!
I know–liberals always loathe their own countries. It’s in their DNA. They can’t stop doing it even on the 4th of July.
For the good of America, they must be totally defeated.
