Stan, if in fact this is an actual quote from Stanhope, then I would say Stanhope is an idiot. Just suppose for example that someone said:
"Black Lives Matter does nothing but teach you to hate people you never met...and to blame others for atrocities they had no part in." The Lefties would go NUTS!
But when it comes to expressing nationalistic pride in the U.S.A., the Lefties are quicker than Usain Bolt to rip the country.
