I bet she gets her anti-American non-patriotic sentiment from her father, who couldn't be there to see his daughter win a gold medal, due to him being an Air Force Staff Sgt. currently serving in Afghanistan.

Clearly these people HATE America, and need to be immediately investigated by Michelle Bachmann and Alan West.


But seriously, F*ck you Faux News. F*ck You!

Everyone that says "American exceptionalism" should be shot, but not before they are given a general knowledge test so they know why.

HairBolus: I don't quite understand the "real" vs "representation" distinction.

to begin, those napkins have too many stripes and too few stars. The flag (and I may just be pulling this right out of my ass) has exact proportions of stripe/star size, placement, etc.

We'll stop playing it when they stop dealing it.

If you have a more plausible explaination I would be pleased as punch to hear it.

But is she wearing underwear made of the U.S. flag?

As that would be a jailing in India.
Man makes underwear of India flag

/Being patriotic by Eating red, white and blue candy, does not come out in those colors.

pisceandreamer: Methadone Girls: Didn't the whole team wear the same pink leotard?? I thought the whole team wore the same outfit. Why are they just picking on Gabby?

They do - Gabby just has more face time because of the gold, so she's an easy target. GOP: We're not above picking on 16 year old girls.


Also, Fox isn't picking on Phelps or any of the swimmers. There is a reason for that.
 
2012-08-05 07:18:46 PM  

Bonzo_1116: To be fair, the geography of of the USA *is* truly excellent. And after we swept out the previous residents, it was all ours. Manifest Destiny was just a pretty way of justifying snagging all that prime real estate.


Agreed, totally. America was gifted with resources and used (or maybe overused?) them well. Just like Gabby was gifted with dexterity and determination. Both she and the US had to use those gifts to become truly exceptional. Too bad the US couldn't have incorporated its native cultures a little better...

But today, we're exceptional no matter what we do! Yay! Let's crap on a significant portion of our own citizenry (they love that kind of thing). Let's tell all the other nations that we're more loved by GOD (our GOD, not their fake god). We're better at everything except where the other side cheats, and when we cheat it's because we're better. Our women are better at being second-class citizens than theirs are at being chattel. Our guns are for stopping invasions and government excess, mostly, really, we promise. And we can out-burn oil faster than anybody can produce it. Go ahead, try! American Exceptionalism without American Entitlement is America Diminished! fark you! AMERICA, AMERICA!!!!

Whoa, sorry... I was just possessed by my recently deceased uncle. I'm from Kansas, what do you expect.

Dear Fox,

I think you're confusing patriotism with nationalism. You may want to look into that before anyone thinks you're nationalists.

Methadone Girls: Didn't the whole team wear the same pink leotard?? I thought the whole team wore the same outfit. Why are they just picking on Gabby?


Yes. They wore uniforms choses for them. Michael Phelps and the entire USA team wore the same gray warm-ups as well, but I didn't hear his name being bandied about as unpatriotic. He's not black though, and a grown man. FOX picks on people they think they can beat up on.

Forty-Two: Considering how openly Christian Gabby Douglas is, I would have thought that Fox News would be celebrating her accomplishment and praising her for being brave enough to profess her faith.


Its Fox news. Simply being Christian does not excuse being black. Neither does success or patriotic action for that matter.
Actually, very little actually excuses being black for that crowd.

I'm pretty sure their team leotards were red.

randomjsa: Let's see, that took about... 5 seconds worth of searching?

You will find no shortage of red, white, and blue gymnastic uniforms, including some worn by Gabby Douglas.

Then there's the one she wore during team competition.

There's a legitimate question as to why our athletes aren't wearing more American colors, as they always have in the past. That's what the story is about by the way, not specifically Douglas. I can see that, as usual, this has to be twisted in peoples minds until the big mean people are saying something nasty because that makes you feel better about yourselves.

WTF Indeed: Maybe because wearing the flag is both tacky and an affront to the flag itself.

Strange how this only ever seems to be applied to wearing American flag colors. You never see people walking around telling any other country that it's tacky and an affront to their country... And if you did people like you would scream about it.


You apparently have ever read the official rules for respecting the American flag. You are not a patriot, son. You are what BillO calls "A Pinhead."

Notabunny: Dear Fox,

Oh, I've thought they were nationalists for quite some time. Ultranationalists, in fact, and fringing on fascists.

So she's not patriotic enough for the White people, and she's not black enough for the Black people.

If I was Gabby Douglas, I'd retroactively renounce my citizenship and give all my gold to Jamaica.
 
2012-08-05 07:58:35 PM  
Many Americans come from peasant communities, I see no exceptionalism there.

Disgusting
 
2012-08-05 07:59:31 PM  
Remember if you aren't constantly chanting USA! USA! USA! or else wearing the flag as apparel (to Hell with US Flag Code), then you are anti-American and a terrurist.

WTF Indeed: Maybe because wearing the flag is both tacky and an affront to the flag itself. Maybe one's patriotism is best shown with how well they do, rather than how loud they yell. Maybe, just maybe, true love of country is more than just saying "I love America."

Or it could be that Michele Obama as infected the athletes with her America-hating virus, and would rather see them doing the crib walk than waving the Stars and Stripes and stealing the energy drinks from smaller nations.


Wait, are you saying that Americans shouldn't just SAY we're number one, but that we should PROVE it?

I got as far as her being shocked, SHOCKED, I tell you!, that chants of "USA! USA! USA!" were more prominent at the 1984 Olympics in Los Angeles than in the 2012 Olympics in London or the 2008 Olympics in Beijing.
 
2012-08-05 08:45:37 PM  
It's so funny how Fox always harkens back to the "good old days," yet their ideal American seems to be a tough-talking, chest-pounding, football-spiking blowhard who blathers on and on about what a bad-ass he is.

My dad brought me up on movies like "To Kill a Mockingbird," "Sergeant York," "Shane," "The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance," "Mister Roberts," "Gunga Din," and "High Noon." TV shows like "The Lone Ranger," "The Rifleman," "Gunsmoke," "Dragnet," and "Have Gun Will Travel."

And in the "good old days" all that puffed up braggadocio was the sole providence of the bad guys and buffoons. The heroes, the All-American archetypes, were.. to a goddamn man... humble and soft-spoken. They didn't brag, or look for trouble. They treated people with respect and dignity. They were confident enough to live and let live.

The Fox News notion of the quintessential "American man" is more like the hothead or coward who was always causing trouble or escalating situations because he was terrified and/or insecure and had a chip on his shoulder and something to prove.

How proud you Republicans must be.

Congratulations to Gabby and all the American athletes. Many of us are proud of you regardless of what color suit you wear. And then there are Republicans...
 
2012-08-05 08:50:36 PM  

Forty-Two: This is not a statement against vocal Christian athletes; I'm honestly surprised that Fox didn't jump on that and claim victory.


Fox News was simply following the correct order of operations. Remember the mnemonic for order of operations, "Please Excuse My Dear Aunt Sally." That translates to:

Patriotism
Ethnicity (if she'd worn a flag leotard, this is where they'd have gone next)
Money, Not Enough of It
Democrat Party
Atheism (if she'd been a rich white Republican, then they'd do the good-Christian-girl angle)
Semiotix

Kenya and say I am Obama's illegitimate child.

Can you imagine the spike in Romney donations?

RNC would pay her $10-15 million for her to say it, that's chump change that they will get back in days from supporters.
