Donald Trump and his brainwashed trailerbillies like to talk about patriotism these days.
“Make America great again!”
Do these working class morons who believed his lies and voted for him even know what the hell patriotism is?
I laughed when I saw the article from the Financial Times: https://www.ft.com/content/29f24644-78f1-11e8-bc55-50daf11b720d
The company has closed one plant, layed off hundreds of workers, and the production of some parts are being moved overseas to avoid EU tariffs, according to the Financial Times.
Look, at least Ronald Reagan tried to help by placing a tariff on 750cc Japanese motorcycles. I’ll give the old man in Hell credit for that. However, while my fellow liberals on Facebook are amazed at the apparent low IQ of the average American blue-collar worker, I’m not the least bit surprised. This is because the American blue-collar worker has voted against his own economic interests since the days of the Nixon Administration.
Patriotism isn’t putting an American flag on your Japanese-made truck. One demonstrates patriotism by purchasing durable goods made in the United States-which is now becoming more difficult to find because of Donald Trump’s economic policies. Patriotism also requires that you address social evils-like separating children from their parents because of something that the parents did thirty years ago.
In case you forgot, Ronald Reagan granted amnesty. Don’t believe me? Okay.
Okay, so my Element television probably has parts which come China, but at least the damn idiot box was assembled here!
My New Balances are made here, as are my Allen Edmonds-so are my Peavey and Crate amplifiers. My Dodge Dart and Plymouth Breeze were both made here, as I have never owned a foreign car in my entire life. As a matter of fact, I stopped buying Vans tennis shoes after wearing them for 15 years because they shipped their factory from Anaheim and Orange in California to China.
That’s patriotism! Put your money where your rhetoric is, or stop waving that flag in my face! Otherwise, I just might have to flick my Bic (most of which are made in America) !
One more thing.
LEAVE THE IMMIGRANTS ALONE!
The truth is that Trump voters don’t know what patriotism is, so they just need to be quiet about the subject before someone gives them a five minute lesson on the same. The first thing you need to know about illegal immigration is that anyone who is Sioux, Comanche, Apache, Navajo, or the like will tell you that the white man has nothing to say on the subject, as he stole everything from those mentioned above.
