Rolling Stone: Donald Trump, supporters ‘unpatriotic’

Trump-16It seems the left is bending over backwards fomenting hate and violence against those with whom they disagree.

In an article published Tuesday at the Rolling Stone, Jesse Berney says that GOP front-runner Donald Trump and those who support him are unpatriotic.

“The mantle of patriotism doesn’t belong to conservatives or liberals alone, but there is a minimum requirement; Donald Trump, and all who support him after Monday’s announcement, don’t meet it,” he wrote in an article headlined, “If You Support Donald Trump, You Are Unpatriotic.”

“Remember the Bush years, when you could never accuse someone of lacking patriotism? Dissent is patriotic, and all that?” Tim Graham wrote at Newsbusters.  Of course, that was back when a Republican was in the White House.  Now that a Democrat rules the roost, freedom is something we can only dream about.

Will this presidential election be the most important in American history?

But it turns out there’s a bit of hypocrisy at work here.  Graham added:

The subhead was “Any American who would pick and choose which religions get the sacred protection of religious freedom is no American.” In that case, Rolling Stone, meet President Obama, who has chosen to drag the Little Sisters of the Poor to court because Catholic sisters need to pay for birth control.

Graham also reminded us that the Rolling Stone “put the Boston Marathon bomber on their cover like a rock star…”

Berney said:

The immigration debate has always been contentious, but adding a religious test to entry creates a new fault between the sides. And those on the side that would ban all Muslims from entering the United States have forfeited their rights forever to claim to be patriotic Americans.

They have given themselves totally over to fear – and, let’s be honest, hatred – and allowed it to destroy their belief in the absolute minimum of what it means to be an American. We don’t arrest people for saying things we don’t like, and we don’t discriminate because of religious beliefs. Those are the basics, and if you can’t manage those, you do not love this country…

Maybe he should send a memo to Attorney General Loretta Lynch
