Sorry, Donald... but your "american exceptionalism" attack is nonsense. I never said that exceptionalism was not worth the breath with which it was spoken; I said there are those who use it as an excuse for nativism and divisiveness, and it is those excuses that are unworthy... Even your readers will be able to see the difference, Donald...
As for Rachel, I don't really know what she was trying to say (unless it was that America isn't perfect, maybe,)* but your guilt by association attack, as though I agree with or have to answer for every word the woman speaks, is pretty lame. I said my piece... Attack what I actually said... Don't just call it denialism and dishonesty... Show that it is either...
I feel bad for you Donald... Your need to lash out at others makes you a pathetic excuse for a man.
But thanks for "stalking" my blog and Twitter stream enough to launch this kind of ridiculousness... It shows how much of a hypocrite you really are...
*I later discovered that Rachel Maddow's intent was to question why so many refer to "a SHINING city on a hill," when the John Winthrop sermon from which the image was borrowed never referred to the city on a hill as shining.
"For we must consider that we shall be as a city upon a hill. The eyes of all people are upon us."Intentionally or not, Ronald Reagan recast the city on the hill as shining, perhaps in reference to the Sermon on the Mount, at Mathew 5, 14-16
14"You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. 15Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. 16Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.---
