“God Bless America”


Rick Moran castigates Gerth Kuntzman, a critic of “God Bless America” who objects to it because

[t]he song still embodies great things about America, but also our worst things: self-righteousness, forced piety, earnest self-reverence, foam.


Anyway, Moran opines (correctly, in my view) that

Kuntzman’s attack on a great patriotic song embodies the left’s continuing war against normalcy and tradition.

I object to “God Bless America” and other patriotic songs because they no longer reflect America as it is: decadent and dictatorial.
