  •  Absolutely. They simply hate it when we win and (17+ / 0-)

    try to help the American people.

    Perhaps because we don't do it wrapped up in a flag and kneeling before their God.

    •  Yep, these folks are the modern day Pharisees (10+ / 0-)

      Saducees, seditionists and traitors THEY are so busy calling out.  They are completely incapable of any type of true grace, charity, generosity, humility or introspection.

    •  Their God? (9+ / 0-)

      They don't believe in any God other than money.
      If they really believed in the bible's God, they couldn't lie and destroy people as easily as they do. Religion is just the tool they use to rile the lemmings.

    •  I think it's because we try to help the American (0+ / 0-)

      people period. I think what they think of is the blacks, latinos, and women gaining power in America. They realize that the path to power starts with a home base, food and shelter. Not to mention the money competing with their graft and corruption. An excellent example of how this is playing out is Virginia. When you look at the election maps county by county, you see the "swing" came from the most densely populated areas, highest AA concentrations, liberals, etc.. No news there. But what is happening is that we are getting the sense of power that we truly have, to address our needs, and not the needs of the wealthy or whites, having their fears played upon. All those voters in the counties, mostly white, are now finding themselves out-voted. Yes our policies help the white. But you get why they are willing to vote against their own self-interests, if it means maintaining the fantasy. Bill O'Reilly dragging out a fictional family (Leave It to Beaver), and saying America is gone???!!! Talk about self-delete. It is delicious!!
       I do see that they would be willing to help another American so long as that American was also draped in a flag and kneeling before the same god, because they share the same bogeyman, and needless to say, the colour of their respective skins would probably match. But we can't legislate that easily enough, can we?
      My family originally came to Virginia before the war and was chased out for educating slaves. I consider it interesting that I ended up here and am part of the change of this state. Now if we could retire all those statues on Monument Ave. that honour the Confederacy. I think we could put them in the slavery museum. Maybe not.
