The comment section will always reveal the truth about humanity, and when I saw a horde of people posting messages about how John McCain isn’t an American hero, mocking his brain tumor, calling him old and pretty much assassinating his character and treating him like toilet paper, I found myself asking, “What the everlasting fuck is wrong with people?”
And no, this is not because I’m a Democrat who is only siding with John McCain because he isn’t for the GOP’s healthcare bill. Even when he had that yapping Alaskan as his running mate and ran against my favorite president, I still found myself saying, “You know, I don’t agree with any of his policies, but damn if he isn’t a hero.”
This man spent 5 years in a POW camp, was stabbed with bamboo and tortured to the point where he looked drugged-up. Yet, Peter Patterson of Whitesville, Kentucky sits behind his keyboard and talks shit, because his liberal tears fetish wasn’t satisfied and he was looking forward to something to jack-off to. You know, that’s all a Trump supporter can do: Talk shit. They talk shit and wonder why they get hit.
Don’t you fucking dare come at me about Colin Kaepernick if you’re the kind to say John McCain isn’t an American hero and support a man who said, “He’s not a war hero. He was a war hero because he was captured. I like people who weren’t captured.”
And honestly, I use to low-key criticize Kaepernick, but after a year of living in the Trump era and hearing his supporters crucify John McCain, I can’t stand for an America that is just about being a dick. I can’t stand for the American dream of being obnoxious and metaphorically farting in people’s faces as their only argument is, “He won, get over it, fuckhead!”
And honestly, it’s less about Donald Trump and more so the base he entertains. And I love this country! I have written love poems to America and I respect veterans (even the Republican ones). I love the civil rights history and how we reached the moon. I love the freedom that I’ve been blessed with and how we came together after 9/11.
But this red-white-n-blue South Park episode fueled by Mountain Dew, arrogance, bullying and the simple policy of “Fuck Hillary”? No. I will sit; however, I will stand for a tired veteran who needs to rest and give him my chair.
