Fourth of July takes an Ugly Trump turn....

Trump still doesn't get it, and nothing ruins the Fourth of July like Trump's song, "Make America Great Again."

From the start, the Trump slogan assumes American wasn't great, an incredible insult and definite no-no for rabid right wingers tired of hearing liberals whine and complain about their great country. Yet they went full throttle on Trump's lost faith and pride in America slogan.

Phony Outrage targeting Michelle Obama: Remember when Republicans lashed out at our uppity black first lady's lack of pride in our country...and Cindy McCain's comeback:
Before the Wisconsin primary in mid-February, Michelle Obama made a remark that Republicans will use to hammer her husband should he win the Democratic nomination. "For the first time in my adult life, I am really proud of my country because it feels like hope is finally making a comeback," she said. Almost immediately, Cindy McCain told reporters, "I have and always will be proud of my country."
Cindy McCain lied, and proved it by jumping on the "Make America Great Again" Trump train.

Fourth of July Nationalist Fervor: I only just heard the song below after Trump tweeted it. Again, conservative voters everywhere apparently didn't think their country was so great, especially when that not so white family inhabited the White House. Check out the all white choir belting out their nationalistic pride:
A Southern Baptist church choir sang a “Make America Great Again” ode at a rally President Trump. This isn’t the first time the phrase has been turned into a song. Russian punk band Pussy Riot released an anti-Trump protest song with the same title last year.
 
The musical work Trump tweeted out Tuesday has already faced criticism, the Christian Post noted, for its blending of devotion to God and country. Jonathan Aigner wrote of the piece in Patheos, as quoted by the Christian Post:

“The problem is that it has been adopted by a significant portion of the evangelical church. It’s their mantra, their creed, and their prayer, and they shout it out with nationalistic fervor. Pledging allegiance to God and to America in the same breath, melding together the kingdom of God and self, they pray a blasphemous prayer to a red, white, and blue Jesus.”

Pussy Riot got it Right: Funny how a song with the same title could be so different, but way more accurate. Having written a few songs myself, I can't help pointing out the perfectly worded line, "Do you know that a wall has two sides? And nobody is Free?" It's not like liberal Americans will be fleeing the U.S. for Mexico, but it's still a good point. Since the lyrics might be a little difficult to understand, I posted them below:


What do you want your world to look like?
What do you want it to be?
Do you know that a wall has two sides? And nobody is free?
Did your mama come from Mexico
Papa come from Palestine
Sneaking all through Syria Crossing all the border lines

Let other people in
Listen to your women
Stop killing black children
Make America Great Again

Could you imagine a politician calling a woman a dog?
Do you wanna stay in the kitchen?
Is that where you belong?
How do you picture the perfect leader
Who do you want him to be
Has he promoted the use of torture and killing families

Figures. Another clueless communist leftist who can't even get the name of the holiday right lecturing the rest of us about this history of America he knows nothing about.

Bravo!
