It is a dramatic discovery. There could be people who hate a certain country. Such individuals will do harm to it just to do harm. They might not even feel that they do harm. They might feel that they serve a purpose, a group, an ideology even. They might think they were just doing their job. But they do harm to the very soul of the country, to its land, its nature, its people. Such individuals are evil. They are destructionists.
A law professional had drafted, designed and polished the Patriot Act, that XXIst-Century mirror of the Stalin's decrees of the 1930s. That person tried hard to please his bosses. That was his job to please his bosses. At least that was how he understood that. And he unleashed the evil into the world blindly the same way hundreds of the Gestapo low- level officers did that. He disgraced himself and his profession. I think he hates this country.
An ultraconservative activist goes around the country and campaigns to close the US border. He is appalled at those Mexicans coming illegally. He urges the government to build a wall in the desert. That wall will first and foremost cut us off from the world. But he doesn't care in his puny rage. He is nuts. I think he hates this country.
A politician lies and provokes wars. Those wars are illegal, criminal and dangerous. We kill lots of innocent people and create deadly enemies throughout the world but that politician does not give a damn. I think he hates this country.
A televangelist monopolizes God. He claims in a sacrilegious fervor that he and only he can speak to God. He dares to state that God is only here. He makes us an enemy of the Humanity. I think he hates this country.
A columnist openly discloses the name of the CIA operative thus endangering her life and other people as well. Not only is he not punished, but he gloats on that, comes openly out, defies people and gets even more money for it. I think he hates this country.
A group of dishonest and crooked individuals try to take advantage of the political situation and our unstable leadership for their own profit. They talk nonsense to the government, cook the books and instigate paranoia. They constantly promote fear and talk about the 'war of civilizations' . They use the country's resources for their own personal benefit and openly abuse the people of the country. They are marauders.
I think they hate this country.
We all know who those people are. We see them every day. They don't hide. I love this country. They hate it. Choose your side.
