By Demeaning American Exceptionalism---John F. Kerry Proves Once Again He's A Pompous Ass

Even though its under threat by this administration, I will always believe in American Exceptionalism. It's just how I roll...My Tweet

If you're one of my many readers, you know how much I despise John F. Kerry. It's not difficult. The prick is low hanging fruit. That low hanging fruit was on display again yesterday when he spoke to a graduating class at Yale: "I get a little uptight when I hear politicians say how exceptional we are." One thing is certainly clear: they're not talking about him.

For those too young to remember, this is the guy who maligned an entire generation of Vietnam Veterans. He did it again in 2005 when he said our troops terrorize children and kids in Iraq in the dead of night. 

But Kerry is not alone. Many progressives feel the same way he does including Pres. Obama when it comes to American exceptionalism. These people made careers out of trying to have America perceived as a "mediocre" nation. Even in the face of the assault on American exceptionalism by the progressive political class, America will remain exceptional only if it continues to believe it's exceptional. And I believe most Americans continue to believe that. It's part of our national DNA stemming from our own Declaration of Independence, the Bill of Rights and the Constitution.

Our Founders were very perceptive. They were well aware of the impending and never-ending threats to our freedom and liberties. After all, they understood we were a nation of human beings who are not fallible. We make mistakes and often. In their wisdom, they created a system of checks and balances precisely for those reasons.

Thomas Jefferson went even further: "The only source of legitimate powers of government is the consent of the governed. This is the cornerstone principle of American government, society and independence." Today, we've seen this principle come under attack from the progressive political class. It remains up to us to protect and keep it.

And while I can go on and list the countless reasons why America remains an exceptional nation, it all boils down to those principles that define this great nation. There's no better proof of that than watching people from all over the globe entering and trying to enter our country. It's always been a one-way ticket for immigrants not a revolving door. It just remains unfortunate we have leadership like John F. Kerry, a U.S. Senator, whose still be unable to grasp those principles. In fact, we know one truth about him and his ilk: they've never been exceptional because they've never been able to recognize it.
