TODAY IN THE COMICS SECTION OF THE WASHINGTON POST, YET ANOTHER SUBTLE ATTEMPT TO CORRUPT THE YOUTH OF THIS COUNTRY WAS ON DISPLAY.
The offending segment was one of the newer comics, "Barney and Clyde". This particular strip has as its central characters a rich "Big Pharma" CEO and a homeless guy who befriends him. They often meet on a park bench, where the wise homeless guy instructs the rich CEO of the evil drug manufacturer in "social justice" issues.
(The rich guy listens because he's got a guilty conscience)
In today's episode, the bum is explaining to the rich guy that "American exceptionalism" is NOT the same thing as patriotism.
"A patriot' the bum explains, 'loves his country"
Then, going into full-bore clownish mockery, the bum continues, "An exceptionalist loves America because it's the best, sweetest rootin' tootin' country in the whole wide world!!"
A kid reading this strip will recieve the message that the belief that America is the best country in the world is silly.
Here at the Alexandria Daily Poop, we are more than a bit tired of this kind of leftist horse crap. We are beginning to think that the guy who draws that strip maybe should be taken to a meeting with some patriots armed with baseball bats in some alley, there to be forced to drink castor oil until he has to try to hail a cab after crapping his pants.
Trouble is, a patriot cannot do that, because that is a tactic of the Left. And it's too bad.
This is not the first time the Washington Post has endeavoured to corrupt the young and politicize them.
Just before George W. Bush was elected, the Post ran a piece in its "Kid's Post" section purporting to explain the Electoral College. The reason the Electoral College exists, according to the article, was to protect the American People from themselves in case they made an outrageously bad choice for President.
Then the Electoral College voted for George W. Bush, and immediately it was explained that the EC is an "outdated" organization that skews democracy.
In ancient Greece, persons found guilty of corrupting the youth had a choice of exile or drinking poison.
Now here we are, and we can't even force the Posties to drink castor oil, let alone run them out of town. And it's too damn bad.
