It seems that every year about the Fourth of July, liberals declare their abject hatred of America. Their declarations of hatred are just as much a part of the holiday as fireworks these days. This year is certainly no exception, as liberals took to Twitter to declare that America was never great, and they’re doing it with the hashtag, “#AmericaWasNeverGreat.”
Was America great when it regularly beat, lynched, and raped its slaves?

Then leave, please. And don’t go away mad, just go away…
This is only a small sample of the idiocy that permeated Twitter this morning, and naturally, it sparked a backlash:

Millenials tweeting #AmericaWasNeverGreat? Believe me, it was until you came along.

#AmericaWasNeverGreat is the default position of academia, the media, and the well funded leftist activists plaguing our country

It also happens to be the default position of the low-information left which, by the way, happens to support Hillary Clinton.
I say we take up a fund and offer to fly the whiners on the #AmericaWasNeverGreat tag to the Middle East, one way. Because we're giving.

That sounds similar to something I suggested recently. At the time I was being a bit sarcastic…
- Is it time to banish liberals from America?
- Clinton labor secretary warns against July 4th ‘exclusive’ patriotism, ‘Americanism’
- Liberal Vox: American Revolution a mistake
- On Independence Day, do Americans really know what that means?
- Federal judge: Judges should stop studying outdated U.S. Constitution
