The Grinches That Try To Steal the Fourth of July

The Fourth of July for me is what a full moon is to a werewolf. My unapologetic, flamboyant patriotism is at its all time high and no communist anywhere ever could stop me from spreading my drunk, all-American cheer. But every year, without fail, there is some hipster that wasn’t hugged enough as a child using my favorite holiday to defame this country and all of her glory. And while I respect your first amendment right to express your blasphemous opinions, I would be remiss in my duties if I did not take the time to make my counter argument.

imageIf you haven’t seen this clip about why “America is n* l*nger the greatest country in the world” from Newsroom, you’re not really missing anything, because 3 minutes of your life is lost to commie nonsense that you’ll never get back, but you should watch it so I can tell you why it’s wrong.

imageI’m not going to disrespect another nation to praise my own, but I don’t want the Canadian or Belgian or French versions of freedom. If socialism works for our neighbors to north, more power to them, but it has no place in God’s country.

imageAssuming that all of the statistics he rattled off were true, they have little to nothing to do with the greatness of a nation. We may be seventh in literacy, but my great grandfather barely had a fourth grade education yet built a life for himself in a time and place where black success was unheard of. He was by no means a Rockefeller, but he lived comfortably and all on his own dime. He owned his own land, provided for his own family, and earned respect from blacks and whites alike in a small segregated town in Georgia pre-civil rights without ever going to the fifth grade. Against the odds, and without the government holding his hand, he made it. And that’s why America is the greatest country on Earth.

imageAnd seriously, he said 178th in infant mortality like that was something we were supposed to be leading in. Am I missing something? When did dead babies become a bragging right? And number four in labor force? You know who number one is? China, and I’m pretty sure that not a single American would like to trade their working conditions for those of an average Chinese employee.

imageAmerica is not a statistic, and her greatness cannot be measured in data. America is a miracle and America is a spirit; one of resilience, one of passion and one of determination. There is much more right with my country than wrong, and I will defend her with my last breath.

This Fourth of July, get drunk, watch the fireworks, but most importantly, tell an indignant hipster to shut the fuck up.

  • Carbs don’t count if they’re not in English...duh
  • Say what you will about my president but if his majesty starts posting thirst traps the kardashians are over 😫🍑🎂💯👀
  • “Wow it sucks that your job only took you to Punta Cana for a weekend”

The same people wondering why they’re so miserable are the same ones trying to find something negative to say about a free vacation lol. Good things happen to those who are grateful
  • Not gonna lie, both of these pictures bother me a lot and I was tempted to edit and had a lowkey nervous breakdown looking at them and I’m not saying that for disingenuous sympathy “ur perf” comments but bc it’s real and I caught myself and even though we all are projecting curated versions of our lives on here to an extent we can at least make a choice to what degree we participate in fake toxic 🐃💩. Also while some people might not understand why these pictures are so upsetting to me, when you know what your body is capable of and how far below that standard you are I believe it’s completely normal and healthy to be disappointed in yourself and want to do better. But if you’re going to edit your body in pics it should be with diet and exercise not Facetune and filters. So hopefully posting bikini pics will suck less in the summer lol
