Chuck Norris is America

One of the odder parts of the Bush era was that I remembered how much conservatives hated America during the 90's.  Oh, they hated America for the "right" reasons (ie, a commie controlled the government), but they hated it all the same.

I remember one time in particular when a conservative co-worker of mine muttered "I hate this country" completely out of the blue.  I honestly was speechless, as he was an otherwise quiet guy and we never discussed politics together.  Based upon that job, I'd say that was the summer of '95, so it was while anti-Clinton hatred was still on the rise, before Republican hubris killed the movement.  And as a reminder, this was just a few months after two conservative terrorists taught the government a lesson by killing 168 people in Oklahoma.  And then there was their movement to protest the government by placing American flag stamps on their mail...upside down.  Yes, I'm sure the Postmaster General had trouble sleeping at night whenever he saw one of those coming through.

And so it's no big surprise to see Chuck "Fucking Crazy" Norris suggest that all true patriots begin using a "revolutionary" flag in lieu of flying the American flag.  Or if you have to fly a real flag, to use one that's been desecrated stained with tea instead.  That's right, they're screwing up the flag to make a political statement.  Damn it, where's that flag burning amendment when you need it?

Here's Chuck's "reasoning" on this:
Of course, patriots know that the 50-star flag truly represents one nation under God and our Founders' republic, but modernists simply don't get it. So what do you say we make a statement by flying a different flag and educate our neighbors when they ask us, "Why are you flying that flag instead of the contemporary Stars and Stripes?"
But honestly, I can't imagine any neighbor being dumb enough to walk into that hornet's nest.  If you see your neighbor proudly flying the Navy Jack, just keep on walking.  You don't want none of that conversation.  Particularly not when your neighbor is Chuck Norris, who isn't even able to offer any semblance of reality in a written argument, in which he's had time to think about what he's saying.  I can only imagine that any actual argument with him would end with a roundhouse kick to the liberal noggin just as soon as he realized that your stunned silence wasn't a sign of respect.  He'd knock off your gaping jaw quicker than you can say "wildly inaccurate."

And only a fool can't see what's going on here.  When a Dem controls the government, it's evil to support the government; and when Repubs control the government, it's evil to oppose the government.  And so right now, they hate the government, and if they have to diss America to diss the government, so be it.  After all, they're the true patriots while we're the "modernists" who don't get it, so whatever they say goes.  America is they and vice versa.  Never forget it!
