Happy 4th!

@thedrun: Happy 4th! Let's all remember that this country was founded by secular leftist radicals who wanted to be free from oppression!

@bintalshamsa: The founders of our country were actually vicious colonizers who simply wanted to be on top.


We were founded on a very basic double standard. This country was founded by slave owners who wanted to be free. Am I right? A group of slave owners who wanted to be free. So they killed a lot of white English people in order to continue owning their black African people, so they could wipe out the rest of the red Indian people and move west and steal the rest of the land from the brown Mexican people, giving them a place to take off and drop their nuclear weapons on the yellow Japanese people.

Is it weird that I hold these perspectives in my head as all pieces of truth at the same time?
