    I always get a kick out of lunatics on the right calling someone "anti-American", when I look at the things they support, like Constitutional rights.

    Here is the rights' version of what Constitutional rights are:
    Is this what many of them consider American values? It must be, because anytime someone voices their criticism of these policies, they're attacked for being anti-American.

    My God, you people are fuckin' nuts and not anywhere close to what an American believes!

    Only if you are not an American Citizen. If you are a Citizen you get full due process. If you are not a citizen and not part of a national army or follow the rules for insurgents, you are an unlawful combatant and your ass is grass.

    LoinBoy conveniently forgets that Obama signed the NDAA as well as a 4 year extension of the Patriot Act.

    And he was moved to a civillian court and convicted. The government was sued and held accountable, so next time if its an American citizen they know they have to go through federal courts.

    It still doesn't change the fact that he was denied his Constitutional rights for 2 years, not even permitted to speak with an attorney, not charged with a crime and tortured regularly. And the only reason they finally charged him, was because the case was going to go to SCOTUS and the government didn't want to see that happen. It's true he was convicted, but not of the crime they originally said he did.

    In all honesty, he probably is a skumbag, who deserves to be in jail. But he's also an American citizen and what happened to him, can happen to anyone. That's why I say, anyone who is not outraged over this, doesn't really care about this country at all.

    Why do you say I forgot?

    Those are 2 of the reasons I withdrew my support for him over 18 months ago.

    Right-wing patriotism might be insane.

    But the thing about left-wing patriotism is, it doesn't exist.
