Six hours ago Ryan T. Anderson tweeted this about Madonna's recently professed thoughts of blowing up the White House: "I'm old enough to remember when rhetoric like this was irresponsible and inappropriate."
This is one big reason why I don't like being described as a "conservative". Conservatives demand respect for the state and its symbols and get all high dudgeon when this demand is not met. Fuck that shit. When the state repeatedly lies us into war, when the state lets the rich steal and imprisons the poor, when the state is run by a pussy-grabbing confidence trickster and advocate of the Nazi Policy of Collective Punishment, the state and its symbols deserve nothing but contempt. BURN THE FLAG!
