America Never Left

Dateline: Irvine, CA (1:45 pm PDT) — Every once in a while a meme, graphic or picture will catch my attention. Today, came across one that was a bit odd in stating that “America Is Back.”

But from where? The Civil War and the battle over slavery; before Civil Rights and racial segregation? Then the meme suggested that the jingoism was one of nationalism. And that is fine. However, given the context of the imagery of the meme, I thought (respectfully) to #FIFY the Tweeter.

No. America never left. It’s always been here and always will be. Those who believe it did yearn for those epochs of American history …which will not return, unless some fascist, ultra-right wing “moron” has his (or her) way.
