I'm not equating what was done during the Holocaust with the atrocities performed here on our lands, although it is purely a matter of degree. Rather, no one who claims to love this country (like those who shout so loudly in the South whenever anything occurs to challenge their world view) should feel anything but loathing at those who worked so hard a century and a half ago to tear us apart.
Apples are good,
Oranges are bad,
Lemons are rude,
Bananas are perverted,
And kumquats are just, plain evil...
