The "elite" and the common man

Reader comment on item: Profs Who Hate America

Submitted by dan (United States), Feb 9, 2003 at 13:41

For decades, the usa has had an entrenched, self-appointed "elite" that have, for reasons known only to themselves, espoused a virulent self-loathing of their country, people and government......placed in positions of eminence by a free people and system, they do all they can to degrade and insult that very system. Meanwhile, millions of average persons throughout the earth try with desperation to reach our shores and start their lives again in this great bastion of liberty.

I share all patriotic americans' respect for those millions, as my contempt for that minority element who, thanks be to God, have never resonated nor represented the feelings of the great majority of Americans. The millions who attempt to flee here are a testimony to freedom's great light. this insidious minority of anti-capitalist, anti-western spoilers of our dream are its great shame....
