McCain, Republicans Disrespect The Flag & America

Republicans like to claim they're the patriotic ones, implying that Democrats aren't patriots. Republicans attempt to stifle debate by claiming that anyone who disagrees with their rightwing lunacy is "unpatriotic".

Earlier in the Presidential campaign, Republicans criticized Barack Obama for not wearing an American flag pin. They spread false rumors that Obama would not resit the Pledge of Allegiance.

In all three Presidential debates, Obama wore a flag pin on his lapel but McCain didn't and very little was said by the media.

Sarah Palin recently said "We believe that the best of America is in these small towns that we get to visit, and in these wonderful little pockets of what I call the real America, being here with all of you hard-working, very patriotic, very pro-America areas of this great nation". Now she's had to make a half-assed apology but her message was clear. She along with McCain and their Republican supporters are trying to paint Democrats as unpatriotic... unpatriotic because they don't agree with their conservative politics.

Just the other day a McCain mouthpiece, Rep. Michele Bachmann called Democratic members of Congress anti-American.

All of the Republicans claims that they love America more, is just theater. When they think no one is watching, the American flag gets tossed in the dirt, just like any other stage prop.

When it comes to the Republican party, Samuel Johnson (1709–84) was right; "Patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel."
