If Trump is right, we might as well burn our flags

Maybe Trump is right, maybe the people who fought and died for this country are suckers and losers.

After all, they apparently fought and died so that a bunch of criminals and traitors could run this country into the ground.

Hardly the America represented by the Stars & Stripes.  Hardly the America for which so much blood was spilled.

Trump said that U.S. Marines who died at the Battle of Belleau Wood (a battle about which Trump knows NOTHING) were suckers.  He refused to go to an American cemetery in France to pay tribute to a bunch of losers.

In his defense, it was raining that day and he didn’t want to get stuck in traffic.  He also said that the weather would play havoc with whatever it is on top of his head.

If you don’t believe that Trump referred to dead soldiers as suckers and losers, then you haven’t been paying attention.

This has always been the way that he refers to the military, to military service and to personal sacrifice.

He called John McCain a loser because McCain was captured in Vietnam.  You can google that for yourself, but unless you just woke up from a 5-year coma, you’ve heard him say it or you’ve seen him tweet it.

He said that McCain was only a war hero because he got captured and he (Trump) likes people who weren’t captured.

Or weren’t killed, apparently.

Sure, now he says that “Nobody respects the military more than me,” just like he said that nobody respects women, nobody knows nuclear, nobody knows outer space, science, viruses, etc, etc…more than him.

According to Trump, he knows more about everything than anybody and is the most decent, moral, respectful person in the history of mankind.

There isn’t a place to draw a line anymore.  The line has been crossed so many times we can’t even see it in the rear view mirror.

Where were our so-called patriots when Trump attacked John McCain?  Or the Gold Star families?  Or the generals that he denigrated?  Or the lieutenant colonel that he fired for telling the truth and defending the Constitution?

Let a Black guy kneel during a stupid song and these guys are ready to go to war, but it’s OK for Captain Bone Spurs to dry hump Old Glory.

How is it that none of these idiots get the hypocrisy of Donald Trump talking about law and order when his entire presidency has been about breaking and disregarding our laws while doing everything in his power to undermine the Constitution?

Enough is enough.

I’ve had it with the hypocrisy, the fake, phony patriotism, the intolerance and the demented worship at the sacred altar of the 2nd Amendment, as if some bogeyman was actually coming for our guns.

This is not America, this is a desecration of the Red, White and Blue.

Maybe burning them would save our flags from bearing witness to the complete destruction of everything for which they once waved.
