Here we go again...

"your native flag & heritage must be American?"

Well folks should have thought of that when they in turn told captured Africans, fleeing Irish Catholics, Chinese, Italians, Eastern Europeans, Jews, and now Mexicans and Muslims that they had or have no place in Real America™. Unfortunately to this day Real Americans can't seem to do that, as a result their will continue to be hyphenated Americans. Now if you don't like that, then I suggest that you take this issue up with those who insist to carry on the American tradition of exclusion.

What's with all the hate rhetoric?

And what's wrong with having your native flag & heritage as American?

Hate rhetoric? The hate rhetoric is the history of hatred directed at a succession of native, immigrant and enslaved people who were historically excluded from being "Real Americans™" and as a result, were forced to forge a separate identity in order to fight against "nativist" movements which attempted to exclude them from the American experience from the early 18th century to today.

Next question?

as a patriotic unPC American, I am very upset with the mauling of English, this country's language.

What the hell does "the founding of this countrys descendants" mean? What strange foreign tongue are you mentally translating from?

The way I see it is this:

ANYONE born in the 50 states, 5 territories, and 1 insular area that make up the United States of America is a native born plain old American pure and simple. They are not Irish-American, Italian-American, African-American, etc but AMERICAN. There is nothing foreign about them other then their last name and maybe a few old family traditions.

Anyone who is born elsewhere and then immigrates to the US IS an Irish-American, Indian-American, Mexican-American, etc.
