Again: America Made Great

Progressives love America.

Well, no. Let me rephrase that.  Progressives love the idea that America is a big, powerful, wealthy place that they might control someday. 

That’s more like it. 

They may protest the point – but they let the truth slip on occasion; Michelle Obama’s “This is the first time I’ve been proud to be an American”, and of course Eric Holder’s “This nation was never great”. 

Christian Adams has an excellent reminder. The whole thing’s a pullquote, so I’m just going to do the conclusion: 

America is an idea, a great idea, that all are created in the image of God as free. That idea, not always perfectly executed, transformed the world. Along the way, it also limited government. The freedoms enshrined in the Constitution restrain the power of government. Government cannot act the way progressives want because the Constitution stands in the way. After decades of trying to redefine the notion of freedom in the courts, Holder and his gang have hit a Trump wall, where judicial nominees no longer subscribe to the utopian view of the Constitution.

Let’s hope that Eric Holder changes his mind and decides to run for president. Do us a favor. Go to Iowa, Texas, West Virginia, and Western Pennsylvania and tell Americans there that America was really never great. Please.

I’d love to see it.

Of course, they have a way of changing their tone when they have to. See also Amy Klobuchar.

  1. For years the standard line from our National Socialists, when questioned about their patriotism, would be “How dare you question my patriotism.” If that didn’t work, they would note that “Patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel.”

    And then the Leader of the Free World opened up a new era when he announced at the Brandenburg Gate “Ich bin ein Citizen of the Worldenhaugen” Translated, that means “it’s OK fellow socialists to trash your own country, especially you Americans.”

    One of Milton Friedman’s favorite lines was “capitalism, as it exists, is always compared unfavorably to socialism as it might exist.”

    To coin a phrase, America as it exists is always hated by those who will love it when the Choom Gang takes over. Thus we are all “patriots” now.
