From The Left - It's All About "How I Feel"


"The city of Denver has already begun to celebrate the Democratic National Convention, which officially begins less than two months from now. Pre-events have included the Colorful Food Watch and the Festival of Unpaid Bills, and yesterday’s State of the City speech began with Leftist Patriotism on Display. Instead of singing the national anthem as requested, Rene Marie replaced it with a protest song:"

Rene Marie chose to sing "Lift Ev'ry Voice And Sing" at the Denver State Of The City event instead of the National Anthem using the rationale "‘I want to express how I feel about living in the United States, as a black woman, as a black person,” .

I read this story yesterday on Jammiewearingfool and this morning on and once again the left in this country have displayed their "patriotism" in very selective ways. Aren't these the same assholes who have protested and have removed the flying of the Confederate Stars And Bars flags for years in Government Courts and in buildings Southern States? Doesn't the site of a granite slab of the "Ten Commandments" cause them to shit their pants and run whining to the ACLU?

With the left it's often about "how I feel" instead of respect and tradition. What about millions of Southerners who fly the Confederate Flag because it's "how they feel". The Confederate flag represents the ultimate sacrifice of hundreds of thousands of young Southern Men and their honor and bravery. I have NEVER heard anyone from the South say they fly the Stars And Bars because it represents slavery. WFT! I guess feelings only count when they originate from the left.

Suppose Lynyrd Skynyrd or .38 Special opened a NASCAR event or an Alabama Convention with a rousing version of "Dixie" because it's "how they feel". You can bet your last fucking dollar this would be front page news in the Lame Stream Media and RevRearend Al Sharpton would have waddled his fat ass down South and screamed bloody murder.

What did George Orwell once say - something about "All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others". It seems the more things change the more they say the same.
