About me

Don’t you just love American patriotism?

A couple of weeks ago, I provided you with a reason for Americans to feel smug. By which I meant citizens of the USA, not everyone from the North and South American continents, but I’m not going to stop using that shorthand, so please don’t complain.

Now, however, I’ve found definitive proof that being an American isn’t so good, simply because you have to put up with sickening patriotism. There are so many things ideologically wrong with that video that I don’t even want to start down that path. But what amused me was the statement on the website:

America We Stand As One and Dennis Madalone did not authorize or assist in the production, creation, or concept behind alternative “spoof” videos of America We Stand As One.

The whole thing looks like one big spoof. It’s embarrassing to watch. And, more than that, it’s just bad. It almost makes me feel sorry for them. Almost.
