25 Quotes That Prove Liberals Don't Love America (Facts Don't Lie) ^ | February 24, 2015 | John Hawkins

Posted on 02/24/2015 5:38:47 AM PST by Kaslin

Rudy Giuliani has been attacked by the Left for correctly saying, “I do not believe that the president loves America." Giuliani wasn’t wrong about that and he could have just as easily said, “Liberals don’t love America.” Sure, there are a few exceptions, but they just prove the rule. Most liberals detest America, want to fundamentally change it and are disgusted by people who really love the country. Don’t believe it? Then just look at all these quotes from unpatriotic liberals and maybe you’ll change your mind.

1) While the rest of the country waves the flag of Americana, we understand we are not part of that. We don’t owe America anything – America owes us. — Al Sharpton at the “State of the Black World Conference” in Atlanta

2) We understand that Nixon's aggression against Vietnam is a racist aggression, that the American war in Vietnam is a racist war, a white man's war...We deplore that you are being used as cannon fodder for U.S. imperialism. We've seen photographs of American bombs and antipersonnel weapons being dropped, wantonly, accidentally perhaps, on your heads, on the heads of your comrades. – Jane Fonda in a propaganda message to South Vietnamese soldiers

3) As to those in the World Trade Center…Let’s get a grip here, shall we? True enough, they were civilians of a sort. But innocent? Gimme a break. …If there was a better, more effective, or in fact any other way of visiting some penalty befitting their participation upon the little Eichmanns inhabiting the sterile sanctuary of the twin towers, I’d really be interested in hearing about it. – Ward Churchill

4) The government gives them the drugs, builds bigger prisons, passes a three-strike law and then wants us to sing “God Bless America.” No, no, no, God d*mn America, that’s in the Bible for killing innocent people. God d*mn America for treating our citizens as less than human. God d*mn America for as long as she acts like she is God and she is supreme. — Jeremiah Wright

5) Let’s get rid of all the economic (expletive) this country represents! Bring it on, I hope the Muslims win! — Chrissie Hynde of The Pretenders

6) You know, the truth is that right after 9/11, I had a (flag) pin. Shortly after 9/11, particularly because as we’re talking about the Iraq war, that became a substitute for, I think, true patriotism, which is speaking out on issues that are of importance to our national security, I decided I won’t wear that pin on my chest… — Barack Obama

7) For the first time in my adult lifetime, I am really proud of my country. And not just because Barack has done well, but because I think people are hungry for change. — Michelle Obama

8) America has an almost obscene infatuation with itself. Has there ever been a big, powerful country that is as patriotic as America? And patriotic in the tinniest way, with so much flag waving? You’d really think we were some poor little republic, and that if one person lost his religion for one hour, the whole thing would crumble. America is the real religion in this country. — Norman Mailer

9) Of course, Mr. Hannity was outraged that any American would not cross her hand over her heart and repeat the hypocritical words, one nation. Whenever we come up on the Fourth of You Lie, I think of Frederick Douglas and his masterful oration, The meaning of the Fourth of July to the Negro. Pledge the flag? I think not! — Julianne Malveaux

10) Barack Obama is the president of the United States of America. More specifically, Barack Obama is the president of a congenitally racist country, erected upon the plunder of life, liberty, labor, and land. This plunder has not been exclusive to black people. — Ta-Nehisi Coates

11) As you probably know, some American politicians and American journalists refer to Washington, DC as the “capital of the free world.” But it seems to me that this great city (Brussels), which boasts 1,000 years of history and which serves as the capital of Belgium, the home of the European Union, and the headquarters for NATO, this city has its own legitimate claim to that title. – Joe Biden

12) The Pentagon as a legitimate target? I actually don’t have an opinion on that and it’s important I not have an opinion on that as I sit here in my capacity right now. – David Westin, ABC News President

13) In practice, US officials seem to know better than to indulge in the patriotic myth that our constitution is the greatest system of government ever devised. – Matthew Yglesias

14) Mitt Romney’s rally in Mansfield, Ohio, on Monday began the way every political event begins. ‘Please stand for the Pledge of Allegiance and our country’s national anthem.’ This is always an uncomfortable moment for me. While I sat at my laptop, most of the reporters around me stood and put their hands over their hearts. This time instead of just sitting and working, I tweeted what I was feeling: ‘@Ari_Shapiro: As a reporter I’m torn about joining in the pledge of allegiance/national anthem at rallies. I’m a rally observer, not a participant.’ — Ari Shapiro

15) My fight against terrorism, to me, the biggest terrorist is Obama in the United States of America. I’m trying to fight the terrorism that’s actually causing the other forms of terrorism. You know, the root cause of terrorism is the stuff the U.S. government allows to happen. The foreign policies that we have in place in different countries that inspire people to become terrorists. — Lupe Fiasco

16) I get always a little uptight when I hear politicians say how exceptional (America is). — John Kerry

17) Obama’s not embarrassing. The country is embarrassing. — Hollywood producer and Obama donor Harvey Weinstein

18) America has been killing people on this continent since it was started. This country is not worth dying for… — Cindy Sheehan

19) The entire country may disagree with me, but I don’t understand the necessity for patriotism. Why do you have to be a patriot? About what? This land is our land? Why? You can like where you live and like your life, but as for loving the whole country? I don’t see why people care about patriotism. — Natalie Maines

20) It's official: The U.S. is the world's leading terrorist state, and proud of it. – Noam Chomsky

21) The US is indeed a terrorist nation. ...It’s also the greatest purveyor of violence on earth over the past half century, and the foremost threat to world peace today. – Bill Ayers

22) A friend of ours said if the same laws were applied to U.S. Presidents as were applied to the Nazis after WWII, that every single one of them, every last rich white one of them, from Truman on would be hung to death and shot. And this current administration is no exception. They should be hung and tried and shot as war criminals. — Zack de la Rocha, Rage Against The Machine

23) The land on which they [the Founders] formed this Union was stolen. The hands with which they built this nation were enslaved. The women who birthed the citizens of the nation are second class….This is the imperfect fabric of our nation, at times we’ve torn and stained it, and at other moments, we mend and repair it. But it’s ours, all of it. The imperialism, the genocide, the slavery, also the liberation and the hope and the deeply American belief that our best days still lie ahead of us. — Melissa Harris-Perry

24) The enemy is inertia. There are a zillion reasons not to do anything; indeed, we Americans haven't done anything -- hell, we haven't thought about doing anything -- for generations. So, at risk of repeating myself, I must emphasize that our current crisis -- economic and political collapse, a surging right poised to take over, with possible environmental apocalypse looming just around the corner -- is not going to resolve itself in a way that we like if we sit on our asses. The current U.S. government must be prophylactically removed. Our economic and social structure must be radically reinvented. These things can only happen by using force. – Ted Rall

25) I hate to say it, but killing is our way. We began America with genocide, then built it with slaves. The shootings will continue. It’s who we are. — Michael Moore

I’ll just say it:

I don’t love America. Did the aplstle Paul love Rome? Did Jesus?

Countries come and go. And I said way back in the early 90’s that I felt like a Jew in early 30’s Germany.

And to make it REALLY clear - I don’t love what America has become. As P. J O’Roarke once said(at least 20 years ago), and I paraphrase: Do you find yourself asking why American voters select the leaders they do? Well, have you seen the tv and movies they watch, the books they read? Hell, HAVE YOU BEEN TO THE MALL AND SEEN ‘EM?!

As a nation, we are no longer the good guys.

“I’m always worried about using the word ‘victory,’ because, you know, it invokes this notion of Emperor Hirohito coming down and signing a surrender to MacArthur,” -—Barack Obama

America is like a healthy body and its resistance is threefold:
its patriotism, its morality, and its spiritual life.
If we can undermine these three areas, America will collapse from within.
Joseph Stalin

I would agree with him. It was indeed a victory for the US and against the Japanese and their brutality during WWII. So his point is? /sarc

Neither of them loved Rome, but both of them loved Jerusalem, the city of their Fathers (religious sense). There is no evil in patriotism, nor is there evil in loving what America once was and might be again.

I’m with you in spirit, but not to pick nits, the US is not Jerusalem. ;-)

Also, you could say I feel about the US the way Jesus felt about Jerusalem when he weeped for it.

I know what you’re saying. But I do love America. I love the gov’t founded on God that our founding fathers built. I love the Christian moral streak that abolished slavery and other ills. I love the million plus soldiers that laid down their life for my freedoms. I love the exceptionalism and the shing city on a hill that provided a refuge for downtrodden people elsewhere. No, I do not love the liberal, godless, shell it has become. It makes me want to cry. We have been blessed with so much and instead we turn to Sodom and Gomorrah as examples.

Whether you’re talking about cop killers, terrorists, radical Islamists or dictators, all you have to do is say, “I hate America,” and liberals start to sympathize with you. Rush

I did when I was a kid. Big time.
But now? Not so illusions have faded away.

I love the American ideals and the people who live them. I think the Constitution is the best legal document on Earth and am glad it’s the one I live under. I am grateful to George Washington for refusing to be made king. I am grateful to Calvin Coolidge for demonstrating that capitalism works, by refusing to use the government “rescue” the people from a recession/depression/whatever you want to label it.

OTOH, public schooling has decimating the US; the public as a whole doesn’t know or understand their own Constitution, and not only woefully ignorant about economics, but also generally lacks the training in logic and in the scientific method necessary to remedy that. Sadly, we have the government a lot of people want, which is not the kind of government that made America great.

Even worse, it is not an issue of “Republican versus Democrat,” because neither party truly believes in returning power to the people. The main dispute between the two parties is about what the government should do — crony capitalism versus outright socialism — not about what role the government should play in individual’s lives.

America was great. Whether it will be great again is very much debatable. I love the promise of America; I don’t love the present America, but I haven’t given up on that promise.

I was in grade school in the early 60’s. I got a lot of propaganda about how bad the Soviet Union was.

I find myself, a lot in the last four years, commenting on how a thing the government is doing to us is reminiscent of those things I was told were so bad about the Soviet Union by my public schools.

It happens more and more. A simple example: I would like to start a certain small business, but I believe it would be such a fight with the government - at all levels, that it’s just not worth the hassle. It should not be that way.

Same here. I could have written your post to me word for word.
(On a side note, I more or less grew up where you moved to, but I moved away after grade school. I'm sorry to hear it's now that way there also.)

No. I’m mostly talking about Seattle (where I moved from). My concerns here are more with the federal government. I tell people that moving here (Taylor county) was like going back in time 50 years in a LOT of very GOOD ways.

I smile every time I see a pickup go by with people riding in the back. That would be unheard of in many places.

If we could just enforce federalism.

Let them have their “America”, we can have ours, and they can’t affect us nor we them.

But, they can’t stand that to happen - people living outside of their control, doing things that they don’t approve of, having attitudes that they don’t like.
