What Fresh Hell Is This?

For Flag Day, 2013

From one of my favorite movies:


The text:
America is advanced citizenship. You gotta want it bad, 'cause it's gonna put up a fight. It's gonna say, "You want free speech? Let's see you acknowledge a man whose words make your blood boil, who's standing center stage and advocating, at the top of his lungs, that which you would spend a lifetime opposing at the top of yours. You want to claim this land as the land of the free, then the symbol of your country can't just be a flag; the symbol also has to be one of its citizens exercising his right to burn that flag in protest." Show me that, defend that, celebrate that in your classrooms. Then you can stand up and sing about the land of the free.
Celebrate freedom, this Flag Day.

Of course it is. It portrays the Aaron Sorkin fantasy that is believed to be "Reality" by the Reality-based community.
Such as
The quote in 1995 that "The internal combustion will be obsolete in 20 years."

In 2014, progressives will claim the IRS targeted/persecuted them in 2009-2012 not the "teabaggers".

Bet you love the Newsroom too.
