Patriotism vs. Nationalism



The “us vs. them” clash-of-civilizations worldview of Steve Bannon and other nationalist types has more in common with the ISIS worldview than with American pluralism. It’s remarkable how extremists mirror each other.

If you missed this op-ed piece written by NFL player Eric Reid, it’s worth checking out. The kneel was chosen as a respectful gesture, like a flag at half mast.  Our government has literally been taken over by Nazi sympathizers, yet many people are furious at football players protesting racism.

    this is so WRONG!!!
    This horrid woman pens slur after slur. |”Our government has literally been taken over by Nazi sympathizers, yet many people are furious at football players protesting racism.”

    Football players are protesting white existence….that’s what they’re protesting. They make a false claim that black maledom is the victim of oppressive law enforcement. FALSE!!
    Dept. of Justice statistics, (you can find them if you’re willing to try) clearly refute this bogus claim.

    As for Nazis or Nazi sympathizers in the US government, to whom do you refer? I might listen if you started with the Obama IRS that targeted conservative groups. Or, if you mentioned the Obama Dept. of (in)Justice that wouldn’t TOUCH all the Hillary Rotten Clinton crimes, and which ran guns to Mexican drug cartels….I might listen. Or if you’d start with the Obama Dept. of State, which set up the destruction of Libya, and then took the weapons stores of the Libyan military and sent them from Benghazi. all over the middle east AND North Africa, to ISIS….and lied transparently to cover their responsibility for the murders of four Americans at the Benghazi consulate that was really an arms depot…..I might take your rubbish seriously
