I’m tired of Conservatives owning patriotism. Who gave you the right to carry the flag. What gave you the arrogance to claim that only your party is for America. Who gave you the prize? What makes you so special, the Chosen People who alone have the right to govern? Who created his Patriot’s Choir. Who….Trump?
This Civil War political reenactment has been four decades building. Here in Southside VA Liberals are the new Yankees, and your values are under attack, so arm up, lock up, and divide America with a Wall. That is the meaning of Trumps Wall. Divide America.
You have drunk the Kool-aid and have made Democrats (more than half the nation, the enemy of America. That is a collective paranoia, a political Jim Jones Cult that is taking American down a suicidal path of self destructive division.
The Patriot’s Choir is a good metaphor, don’t you think, for a Holy Political Party. The Good Republican Party has been infected with the Religious Virus, and it now thinks in terms of a moral battle of Good versus Evil, with it being the Good. So there is no more compromise and working together for the greater good. There is only working for the good of God’s Party. The Party’s Goals are simple: Don’t Do Evil. This means don’t agree with the Evil Left. Oppose them at every turn. I mean, that was the goal set out by Mitch when Obama was elected. Our party will be the Not Obama Party. The NOP Party.
And Trump just throws gas on this fire. The Democrats and the critical free press are the Enemy of the People. Are you in line with that? And of course, this wild fire of violence spreads and catches the dry tinder of weak minds who instead of word bombs throw real bombs.
Now if you call this “putting down our country,” then just sing along in the Patriot’s Choir. Like an aging church with a dwindling congregation, you will eventually find that you are singing to a party with empty seats. The world is going to move on. Civil War reenactments, while of great import in Virginia, will just be some local bearded guys with fat bellies pretending to die for a Lost Cause.
There is only One America, not Two separate Americas, despite what the Patriot’s Choir sings. Unity is stronger than division. Love stronger than hate. Courage stronger than fear. Progress stronger than regression.
This Civil War cannot stand. It is time to put down the flag, boys, time to lay down your rifles …it is time to go home to America, boys. It’s time to grow up and stop playing war. There is serious business afoot in the world. It’s time to come in from the war.
