"UnAmerican"

What does it mean for Democratic delegates to be called "unAmerican"?


http://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=view_post&forum=1002&pid=8058955

This is getting ugly.

Why are we going down this road?



We don't have to do this.

We can win without stooping to this level.

1. I am reminded of a bumber sticker my dad had

Attack America? BIG Mistake!! accompanied, of course by a flag. He is so patriotic that he flys 2 flags up on a flag pole at his house. One modern USA flag and a confederate flag.
This hyperpatriotism reminds me of people with that disposition because it tells them that they are correct in having a nonstop enemy in a nonstop war no matter who they support or who the war is against.

2. That's rich

coming from you. Who pretty much equated chanting USA was being fascist.

I ain't buying what you are selling. You created the ugly with that thread, own it.

4. Do you support such ugliness?

 

Do you consider Democratic delegates "un-American"?

5. Is everyone on the floor a delegate?


Why do you choose to read only ugliness into the posts of your fellow Democrats and board members?

Why do you despise your fellow posters so much you will use dishonesty to defame them and aggrandize yourself.

You have attempted to conflate proud American Delegates at our Convention with bigoted and violent Islamophobes at your University.

Have you no shame?

8. Calling people "unAmerican" is indeed ugliness.

 

Why do you choose to read only ugliness into the posts of your fellow Democrats and board members?


Do you seriously not recognize that?

3. Did anybody ask them if they love Maduro more than Obama?

 

We can start from there

6. No I do not

support your ugliness. Insinuating that people who chant USA are fascists and have no place at a convention. When you got your ass handed to you in that thread, you start a new one. Again whining about something taken out of context and how you believe others fail your standards of what is patriotic.

You seem more upset that about the chants of USA than you are about a bunch of dead-enders attempting to interrupt and diminish civil rights icons, women and others speeches, nominating the first viable female candidate for president.

Equating someone else's incident almost 40 years ago to fascism is beyond the pale. Yes, I am offended by it. Did the Hillary chants offend you? Did the dead-enders interruptions offend you? I'm guessing not, considering how this is the 2nd thread you have started about USA chants. And still you are the only one who found it offensive.

Maybe next convention the participants should ask you what chants are appropriate.

Since when is chanting USA considered stooping to "this level'

10. Your OP

labeled everyone on that floor chanting USA as islamophobic fascists. And you have the nerve to take 1/2 a sentence to say someone else said it? Can't you even recognize that they were chanting to drown out the foot stamping dead-enders who were trying to ruin a very historical moment for the rest of us. You know those of us who wanted to savor the moment. Or is that the real point of all your OP's? The moment shouldn't be honored and recognized for its significance, because you know...... Are you trying to dismiss the relevance?
if so... here ya go

7. You should ponder on this point from that thread:

they were the equivalent to the ones screaming "Iranians not welcome here", in your analogy


and stop spamming the board with hatred because some people like the US and Democratic Party.
