All Of A Sudden, The Left Likes July 4th

And gets truly stupid. Mike Lux, in what looks to be a shameless plug for his book, goes Pure Barking Moonbat

On this holiday celebrating the courage of America’s brave revolutionary founders, all Americans can celebrate. But progressives should take special pride in this holiday, for it was the ultimate achievement of progressive values that brought us this day.

As I discuss in my book, The Progressive Revolution: How the Best in America Came to Be, the Tories who opposed American independence were the conservatives of their day. They revered tradition, and proudly followed orders from the king and the aristocracy in London. They hated and feared the idea of democracy, and thought the idea of equality was laughable. As Tory Samuel Seabury, the first Bishop of the American Episcopal Church, argued:

Um, no, Mike. You can spin it all you want, but, the Progressive movement hadn’t even been born at the time. It is actually a product of the late 1800’s-early 1900’s, which had massive links to and much in common with the rise of fascism in Europe.

Nor were they really Classical Conservatives, since they were supporting a monarchy, part of an authoritarian model. America’s brave revolutionary founders were, in fact, somewhere between Classical Liberals and Classical Conservatives. American conservatism is otherwise known as neo-conservatism, ie, Classical Liberalism.

And, since you folks despised patriotism and everything Americana, denigrated your country, pissed on the Flag, and dismissed July 4 for 8 years, you can’t suddenly take it for your own.

Hey, Jerry and Joe Long were hoping the statues of Lincoln and Jefferson would wake up and go on a rampage for July 4th, 2005.

Oh, and, hey, look, Arianna was moaning about dissent being patriotic a few years ago as a July 4th thought. Go figure. No point in looking for more after that one.

Anyhow, to everyone out there
