This Fourth of July holiday, as you celebrate America’s independence, perhaps you would care to try something new: Perhaps you would like to join with the MSM and, instead, denigrate America’s independence. As in, you could wish that it had never happened. In the opinion of Dylan Matthews at Vox, the American independence of 1776 made the world worse off, because, “first, Abolition would have come faster without independence; second, independence was bad for Native Americans; and third, America would have a better system of government if we’d stuck with Britain.”
But, it doesn’t end there. Speaking with Breitbart News, Matthews even stated that he believes that “a referendum is necessary” in order to “cancel the huge mistake done in 1776,” and, thereby, “rid the world of the many-faced menace that calls itself the United States of America.” And to make matters even worse, he even threatened to “tear up his citizenship papers publically” if the referendum does not take place within 30-days time.
“I regret being born a so-called American,” Matthews spewed. “This pretend-country is nothing more than a mere congregation of different people from different parts of the world who somehow got it into their heads that they have the right to renounce their former homelands, establish a new state, and then consider themselves better than the very nations in which they originated. That is a blatant example of hypocrisy and betrayal, and I want no part in it, not now, not ever.”
He then went on to call for the “correction of one of the most devastating mistake in human history.” “I urge the people who have been misled into thinking that they belong to something greater than themselves to realize that they have been lied to their entire lives. America is today a country thanks to its own, made-up standards. In fact, many people don’t know that this stretch of land started off as a colony intended for the worst of the worst, such as rapists, murderers, child molesters, and some of the most hardened criminals of the Old World. It was they who first conceived the notion of a new country that would go on to forgive the sins of anyone whom it could benefit from in one way or another.”
“Take Nazi Germany, for example,” he argued. “We today boast with the fact that we practically ended World War II. But instead of putting to the trial every single Nazi we captured, we granted them asylum in exchange for their knowledge and technology. Is there a more hypocritical example of a state that takes such pride in claiming it does the right thing in every occasion? This is just one of the many things that makes me ashamed of being called an American.”
“Therefore, I urge the people to take to the streets and I urge the rest of the world to do the same. We must make the U.S. government allow its citizens the right to vote whether or not the United States of America as we know it today should survive. Or, whether its independence should be revoked and it reduced to nothing more than a mere British colony. Only with the latter can we begin to atone for the many sins committed by ourselves and our forefathers who had the audacity to dream big things, yet attempt to accomplish them by doing the smallest and most shameful gestures,” Matthews urged.
“I also hereby announce that I will tear up my citizenship papers in public if the said referendum is not organized within 30 days,” he added. “And should I be silenced before that time, I want everybody to know that I died as a true citizen of a country that lies elsewhere, in our ancestral home in Europe. No more will my dignity and allegiance be falsely attributed to something that should not have existed in the first place. And I call onto others to follow in my footsteps. Because, strength is in numbers, not in money. Unless, you’re Donald Trump, of course. Then you can obviously do whatever you want.”
