WHY WE SHOULD VENERATE PATRIOTISM
For most of our readers, this piece will likely be met with the response of “tell me something I don’t know, asshole.” and while I appreciate being referred to by my pronoun of choice, still I’ll ramble on.
Let’s start with the obvious. America rules, and the west is the best. There, I said it. Moving on…
Contemporary America faces a downright terrifying trend, that of confused Americans who are so spoiled by the comfort afforded them as citizens of the greatest nation in the history of the ever expanding universe, that they’ve actually forgotten about the values that make America so great. The word confused could be replaced by illogical, ignorant, or blissfully unaware. And it’s about time we set these loose ends straight before they fill the basement of our infrastructure with water.
We’re talking about patriotism, or unabashed love of country. Patriotism is a feeling that stems from pride, and it isn’t hard to explain the roots of this pride. America has a long history of forward thinking, of standing up for its rights, and of outstanding individuals passing along the torch of freedom.
It all started in 1776, when the thirteen colonies stuck their middle fingers high in the air, pointed them at Great Britain, and dared them to do something about it. In the end, they couldn’t. This lead to the Constitution of the United States, a document so badass it’s considered a holy grail.
And it didn’t end there. Fast forward to 2019, the here and now. America is the king of the hill to this day, and we aren’t going anywhere. We all know damn well there isn’t a military force in the world who could even dream of touching us, but it goes deeper still. Even the crybaby Americans who gather in groups and attempt to squelch free speech, or protest against the second amendment, or arrogantly claim that “America sucks”, have less than a snowball’s chance in hades of taking down the empire.
But why do they even try? That’s what we’re here to discuss. The question is simple, why do some Americans hate America?
Because some Americans are soft, and they are losers. Soft losers have zero work ethic and refuse to take personal responsibility for their lives. When you won’t take personal responsibility and the consistent theme of your life is failure, you have to blame someone. So they form hordes, embrace victim mentality ideology, and blame someone powerful. Whether it’s the United States as a country, the government, or the straight white male, there has to be a scapegoat. The reason? Hard work is hard, the blame game is easy.
And misery loves company. So when groups of crybabies host public pity parties, plenty of people are radicalized by simple minded, emotionally driven rhetoric with no basis in reality. It is what it is, stupid people love stupid shit.
This in and of itself isn’t a problem, as it is what it is. Always has been, always will be. But, it’s gaining momentum because they refuse to debate logically. In other words, the more wrong the group is proven to be, the more powerful it becomes. It’s called hunkering down into your cognitive biases. And it’s infiltrated some American universities, turning them from centers for higher education into recruiting grounds to train social justice activists.
All the more reason to venerate patriotism. For every flag they burn, we fly ten flags higher. For every tear they cry, we shed ten times more blood and sweat. Because in the end, we’re right. There is no better beacon of hope for the will of the individual than right here in the US of A. Nowhere else does the raw horsepower of an individual’s determination have such potential. Nowhere else does the individual possess such an open ended opportunity to do what makes them happy. Nowhere is as badass as the United States.
And if I know one thing about the American people, it’s that we’ll never retreat to weak minded social justice warriors who couldn’t lead themselves out of a wet paper bag. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, The United States of America is the greatest country of them all.
And that’s why now more than ever, we must venerate patriotism. Long live America!
