New York Times Editorial Board hack Mara Gay appeared on the least-'newsworthy' cable news network in the country, MSNBC, last week to whine about the alleged "threat" posed to her by the sight of patriotism on steroids: Americans who proudly display the flag of our country.
“This is another area where Democrats really need to get serious about talking about what this threat is," Gay told her hack propagandist friends, making sure to throw race into the discussion for good measure.
“They need to stop being surprised by all of this and start taking it seriously,” she droned on. “You know, it’s really concerning to me that the Democrats haven’t just gone ahead, at this point, and said ‘we’re doing this on our own,’ in terms of getting a commission together to explain to the American people how we allowed the insurrection to take place in the Capitol.
“I think that really needs to move forward swiftly. You know, the reality is here that we have a large percentage of the American population,” Gay continued, citing these overt displays of patriotism as a net negative, somehow, for our country.
“I don’t know how big it is, but we have tens of millions of Trump voters continuing to believe that their rights as citizens are under threat by simple virtue of having to share the democracy with others.”
So what she actually said -- and didn't even realize it because her hatred for the very same country that is providing her with an amazing way of life -- is that Republicans and, specifically, white, Donald Trump-supporting Republicans, are the only ones who care about our country. Democrat losers like her, she seems to be saying, don't care for America.
She just said the quiet part out loud and is too blinded by hate to realize it.
Continuing, Gay, the racist, talked about how she found basic American values to be synonymous with “whiteness,” adding that the sight of flags flying in Long Island was “just disturbing.”
“I think that as long as they see Americanness as the same, as one, with whiteness, this is going to continue. We have to figure out how to get every American a place at the table in this democracy, but how to separate Americanness, America, with whiteness. Until we can confront that, and talk about that, this is really going to continue," she said.
“I was on Long Island this weekend visiting a really dear friend, and I was really disturbed, I saw dozens and dozens of pick-up trucks with, you know, expletives against Joe Biden, Trump flags, and in some cases just dozens of American flags, which is also just disturbing, because essentially the message was clear, it was ‘this is my country, this is not your country, I own this,'" she went on.
It's hard to tell what's worse, the fact that she was allowed to speak this drivel unchallenged by any of the cowards at MSNBC, or that she didn't realize her own racism and the fact that everything she is complaining about -- 'oppression' generally -- is a demonstrable lie simply by the fact that she is freely speaking her mind (in a country that allegedly hates her and people like her -- especially those flag-waving Trump bigots).
Not everyone has to like or support Donald Trump, obviously. One of the beauties of living in America that this hater doesn't seem to realize is that it's okay to make up your own mind about issues.
But every American should support displays of patriotism; otherwise, why do they stay here?
