"Americans have no right to feel pride in their country, their history nor have they any right to have any optimism for America's future because America had been responsible for numerous crimes through its history.

America deserves punishment, & chastisement, ..preferably "white" Americans who had enslaved blacks & committed genocide against the native americans, & have also oppressed women & tyrannized minority groups, like the Japanese who had been interned in camps during WWII.

Those evil whites have also been harsh & uncaring toward the poor. Because of the white mans greed, we have despoiled the environment, & are consuming a disproportionate share of the worlds wealth & resources.

Punitive liberals believe that the white majority SHOULD be punished for the sins of past generations.

Punitive liberals feel that the purpose of national policy is to punish the nation for its crimes rather than build a stronger America & a brighter future for all.

Punitive liberals will NEVER trust their own country, & will ALWAYS see America as corrupt, immoral...& dishonorable.

Despite the fact that America has helped free millions & millions of people who once lived in tyranny, & despite the fact that America has spent BILLIONS & BILLIONS to help poor people all over the world; ...the punitive liberal can never be satisfied.

No matter WHAT Americans do today, it will never be enough to make up for the past, as far as Punitive Liberals are concerned.

Because for THEM, ..it is ALWAYS YESTERDAY!

Dear FinnMacCool, ...I do not know. I have not read all your posts, but what I have read tends me to believe that you probably are not.:2wave:

This concept of "punitive liberalism" is bullshit. I'm not saying people don't think this way. I'm saying America does not deserve to pay for past mistakes. What has happened, happened. We do need to concentrate on fixing the problems we have created now. This has nothing to do with liberalism or conservatism. It has to do with America not acting very American lately. We are becoming the Germans of the '30's. Attacking countries that have done nothing to us, is not what America is all about. Trashing the Constitution and scapegoating an entire race of people is not what this country is all about.

I would classify those people more along the lines of "dip shits" than anything else. I don't think true "liberals" want to be associated with those morons.
