I'll stick with the tried and true, old fashioned American patriotism, thank you.

New American patriotism? Where's this guy been since 09/11/2001?

This is a psychopath that still refers to the Russians as "The Soviets" and acts as if they remain our mortal Cold War enemy. Wherever Weaselly Clark has been, he's been there a long long time.

"Patriotism doesn't consist of following the orders, not, not not when you're not in the chain of command," the general said, stumbling over his words and catching himself before he inadvertently encouraged insubordination in the ranks.

It's very interesting that this line was included in a New York Times article about Clark. It's a real slap in his face.

"I think I might send him some money," Mr. Tranen said. "That's the real test, isn't it?"

It's the test of how much of an idiot you are, Mr. Tranen. It means little else.

Turning phrase after phrase of Orwellian newspeak and Clintonian wordsmithing. Nothing but castles in the air.

Clark Calls for a 'New American Patriotism'

Yeah.
Let's start by putting him on trial for war crimes - like blowing up every bridge over the Danube River, Clark's claim to fame.

By the sounds of his rhetoric, in heated discussions with Mr. and Ms. Schlickmiester!

"We've got to have a new kind of patriotism that recognizes that in times of war or peace democracy requires dialogue, disagreement and the courage to speak out," General Clark said. "And those who do it should not be condemned, but be praised."

How about those with the courage to speak out in condemnation of those who speak out? Should they be condemned or praised?

Nothing negative about that.

My thoughts also. The 'old' patriotism was frustrating the socialist takeover so what we need now is a 'new' patiotism that will accomodate it.

These dweebs always seem to think that the 1st Amendment is a one way street; one way their way, of course.

So just shut up all you "old style" patriots!

Funny how onder X42's administration, disagreement on the president and his policy meant that we were part of a vast right wing conspiracy; the type that was blamed for the OKC bombing.

No no, that is the "old" type of patriotism. He wants a "new" type of patriotism. One that is remarkably like treason, actually...

Well, Clark had to leave *himself* the "just following orders" defense, or the peaceniks would never forgive him for his own past belligerent actions...

Just let Clark get elected and see how long our ability to "dissent" lasts.

The slick skunk pulling Clark's strings has a great love for the UN too. Fortunately, the average American citizen has no love at all for the UN.
