Trump-Hater Kinzinger: If You Call Yourself A Patriot, You Probably Aren’t One

While attempting to sound “profound,” Rep. Adam Kinzinger, one of the two alleged “Republicans” hand-picked by Nancy Pelosi to sit on the partisan January 6 committee, issued a tweet claiming that if you’re one of those who call yourself a “patriot,” you really aren’t one.  Unless of course, you served during the Revolutionary War, which, by the way, was an ACTUAL insurrection, unlike the riot that took place on January 6 in Washington, D.C.

If you didn’t serve in the revolutionary war and refer to yourself as ‘a patriot’— you probably are not one,” he tweeted.

Twitchy sarcastically noted:

All of you who have the word “patriot” in your Twitter bio had better remove it unless you served in the insurrection that was the Revolutionary War.


Kinzinger found himself getting dragged mercilessly on the social media site for this idiotic take:

Good point.

I second that motion, considering that I served in the Marine Corps during the Vietnam Era and consider myself a patriot.

Let’s face it, Kinzinger was simply playing up to his new base, which consists primarily of liberal Pelosi Democrats.  And they loved him for posting this silly tweet.

At this point, it looks to us as if Kinzinger is auditioning for a spot at MSNBC…
