After President Donald Trump delivered his July 4th address Friday, the left-wing media accused him of being “divisive,” in part because he’d kind of suggested that members of the modern left hate America.
“No movement that seeks to dismantle these treasured American legacies can possibly have a love of America at its heart,” he’d said, indirectly referencing the left’s push to rewrite and/or outright erase American history.
Here’s the thing, though: Before, during, and after the speech, members of the left willfully proved his point to a T by tweeting out virulently anti-American hashtags. And as of Saturday morning, one of those hashtags — #FvckTheFourth — was still trending.
Look (*Extreme language warning), and take note of the especially ignorant woman up top who believes that president wants to bring back slavery:

Let’s stand with women, native Americans, Latinos, African-Americans, Asian-Americans, the queers, the kooks, the working class, and all those oppressed
Fuck all the white male predators who earned their independence while genociding and enslavering. #FvckTheFourth

Hottest take ever: There was no “Independence Day” They fought against a monarchy to essentially establish their own new one just with extra steps. #FvckTheFourth

Is it fair to assume that any person who would tweet such a vile hashtag and spew such ignorant, filthy, unpatriotic bile about the United States and its duly elected president couldn’t possibly love America?
Examples of the #FvckTheFourth hashtag go on for days, as do examples of the same members of the left who hate the term #AllLivesMatter — and have threatened to kill people who use that term — now gleefully and mockingly tweeting #AllNationsMatter.
Apparently, they think their typical hypocrisy proves a point.

The mockery is based on their belief that yelling #AllLivesMatter in response to others chanting #BlackLivesMatter is ignorant.
And never mind the indisputable fact that, in many countries around the world, including the left’s beloved China, tweeting such hashtags about said nation would mean imprisonment or even death.
“Hong Kong passed a controversial bill on Thursday that makes insulting China’s national anthem a crime. … The Hong Kong legislation says that anyone who insults or commercially misuses China’s national anthem — March of the Volunteers — can be punished with fines of up to HK$50,000 (around $6,400), or up to three years in prison,” Business Times reported Saturday.
Even Europe boasts such laws.
“Article 188 of Greece’s ‘penal code’ states that if someone insults the national anthem, destroys the flag or other national Greek symbols they could go to prison for two years or pay a fine. … German law takes a hard line with anyone who ‘reviles or damages’ the German federal flag, with offenders receiving up to five years in prison,” Euronews reported in 2017.
Here in the states, no such laws exist. Yet instead of celebrating the freedoms that the U.S. Constitution guarantees them, members of the left have continually chosen to denigrate the same document that protects them.
The glaring disconnect and lack of self-awareness aren’t lost on all Americans:
Imagine being so privileged that you feel the need to post #FvckTheFourth and #allcountriesmatter on the day we celebrate our #independence. America is so evil that it allows you to live here, reap benefits, and even let’s you hate your country if you want. Awful.

It’s unsettling to see so many of these people out here disgracing our nation, and posting flags of other countries. Literally you can be killed in several countries for even hinting you have a problem with the government. These people are so ungrateful and just plain ignorant.

It would appear the president agrees with this sentiment.
“Many of these people have no idea why they’re doing this, but some know what they are doing,” he said during his speech. “They think the American people are weak and soft and submissive, but no, the American people are strong and proud and they will not allow our country and all of its values, history, and culture to be taken from them.”
And so if members of the left want to proudly display their ignorance and their hatred for America, so be it. But as Trump made clear Friday, they’d best think twice about acting on their ignorance and hatred, because he ain’t standing for that.
