Oh yes, I do doubt the left's patriotism!
The left is always on the offensive to prove that they are as patriotic as the right. They complain that the right misappropriates the flag for their own use. here is a story to illustrate the true disregard the left has for the American flag. There is a woman who works here at the library and she is a hippy from hell. She is thick ankled, frizzy haired and as narrow minded as it gets. Once a co-worker from Germany and I were having a conversation in the staff room during lunch. The hippy walked in on the conversation. My German friend and I were saying that we felt the homeless here in the bay area were not merely unemployed, but do to lack of personal responsibility, trustworthiness and a tendancy to behave with violence toward others, unemployable. The hippy woman became enraged and told us that she did not agree with us and would not listen to us and that we were to cease our conversation. We chose to continue our conversation despite this attempt by a leftist to shut down our right to free speech. We began to discuss teenage pregnancy. The hippy became red faced and combative. She again demanded we quit or leave the room. We continued, whereupon the hippy stomped out cursing and twitching. Another coworker had the unfortunate job of being this woman's girl friday and doing odd jobs for her. One day the hippy sent her out to buy stamps. The girl asked what kind of stamps. The hippy said, "I don't care, just don't buy any with American flags on them!"
