If you have nationalistic pride then you are a xenophobic & racist bigot. As such, do you realize how many peoples feelings could potentially be hurt
in celebrating this nationalistic holiday?
If you didn't see what went down in the UK with their "Brexit" vote recently then you've been missing out. Come to find out, the people that voted to
leave the EU were immediately labeled "racist xenophobic bigots". The reality is, it more had 'everything' to do with a sense of nationalistic /
patriotic duty to take their nation back from the clutches of the EU Empire. So that's the new precedent: If you're patriotic, if you believe in
national sovereignty, then that means you're a "racist xenophobic bigot".
Of course for us here in the USA, the irony from all of this... considering PC culture started here, and how our Independence Day is the patriotic
celebration of our war of independence from the British Empire... what irony now that they've gone and done it themselves that now those who supported
it get to be labelled as bigots.
But that's just irrelevant mostly, considering by us celebrating the "4th of July" here could hurt the feelings of peoples from the UK via the
inherent Colonialism Shaming.
The ultra super mega issue of concern however is this:
Considering the scores of dictatorships around the world that are kept in power because they host US military bases, how many millions of people
around the world under the thumb of the American Empire would have their feelings hurt for every case of people going out and celebrating our
independence from the British Empire?
I'm not entirely sure how many people that would be, but I'm sure it must be vastly beyond the total number of transgender kids in the United States
(considering they only encompass less than 2% of the total US population).
