Ralph Peters asks. Sadly, if not extinct, patriotism among main stream journalists is as rarely seen as Nessie. The vast majority of people writing for the MSM are left-lib socialist, citizen of the world, anti-war, anti-military, anti-Bush Cronkite and Woodward wannabes. Thirty years ago they were friends of them long haired, hippy-type, pinko fags, as Charlie Daniels so eloquently described them. The schism that developed in America over the Vietnam War has only deepened and widened since. How does somebody claim to be a patriot when they are ashamed of their country’s history, vitriolically opposed to their country’s leadership to the point of derangement, and contemptuous of most of their fellow citizens?
