Shameful: Aaron Sorkin, Left celebrate Independence Day by slamming America; Update: Chris Rock joins in: 'Happy white peoples independence day'; Don Cheadle laughs along; Zach Braff piles on

Unbelievable. Yet, totally believable since it is so predictable. As always, members of the bitter and hateful Left jump at the chance to slam the country that provides them the opportunity and freedom to spew their hatred.

They will have a lot of unfollowing to do today, sadly.

Non-Americans join in the bashing. But, hey, let’s totally appease those who hate us, right? Citizens of the world and all.

Sadly, it’s not just people from other countries. Americans enjoying the freedom that this country, a beacon of light to world, provides decide to “celebrate” with hate as well.

They are all following the lead of the contemptible Aaron Sorkin. Of course, he has no problem earning millions and enjoying the lifestyle he could only have in suck-y America.

More from Ace of Spades:

What Makes America the Greatest Country in the World?

Well per Aaron Sorkin in The Newsroom: nothing

There’s absolutely no evidence to support the statement that we’re the greatest country in the world. We’re seventh in literacy, 27th in math, 22nd in science, 49th in life expectancy, 178th in infant mortality, third in median household income, number 4 in labor force, and number 4 in exports. We lead the world in only 3 categories: number of incarcerated citizens per capita, number of adults who believe angels are real, and defense spending where we spend more than the next 26 countries combined, 25 of whom are allies.

Okay a lot of these  statistics are rather bullshitty and this is a classic example of liberals loving the America that could be rather than the one we have.

Ace further goes on to point out a Slate article that joins in the “America isn’t so great” narrative.

These citizens decide to provide a little lesson for the haters.

And this Twitter user sums it up in a nutshell.


It’s okay, pitiful Left. Keep hating; you have the freedom to do so in America, you see. Try doing that anywhere else. Those of us who aren’t hate-filled and delusional will keep loving our country and cherishing the freedom provided by this great nation.

Update: Chris Rock joins in the slamming.

Some lessons for Mr. Rock.

Truth is hard.

Update: Actor Don Cheadle finds Rock’s tweet absolutely guffaw-worthy.

Update: Actor Zach Braff wants in on the action:

Happy “Independence to Rip Off Other Celebrities’ Tweets” Day, Zach!

  • lillymckim

    I know they have heard it many times before but I will say it again

    Don’t like the USA well Obama has made the borders invisible they work both ways ..
    Make your own Independence Day!

    • SJF **

      Darn straight! and Chris Rock and all the other mouthy a$$ celebrities have the money and the means to leave any day they want. Truth is, they know it’s the best country in the world…and they are enjoying the fame, FORTUNE and freedoms of this country, the country supposedly built up by the wicked whitey crackers. They are full of IT and they know it! And I for one am sick of them and their mouths.

  • VL Towler

    Those tweets are sobering, but we have to take the bad with the good. The trick is figuring out how to make the USA better. If people truly love their country, they should move heaven and earth to make it an equal playing field for all ethnicities, especially those most marginalized. It’s amazing to see how Germany has evolved from the ashes of Hitler’s craziness. We could do the same if we were honest about our deep-seated issues about what it means to be an American.

    To be an American is to not have one’s blinders on, to acknowledge the truth, but to perfect our Union so it belongs to all of us: Whites, Blacks, Latinos, and Asians and every derivation thereof. If we continue to see the country compartmentalized by our gated communities, our gun-toting defiance, our belief that he who is not like me is an alien and does not deserve to live here.. we’ll perish. If we don’t acknowledge what we’ve done to our living environment, we’ll perish. If we demonize all Black men as potential criminals, we will definitely perish. If we let corporations decide how we live, eat, drink, take drugs, sleep and think…. you know we’ve lost our independence.

    As for Sorkin… he’s a mushroom-eating supposed-auteur who has his own skeletons to bare… he is exposing his own guilt for his contributions to the corruption in his industry. His stats might be true or not… but that’s not keeping him from benefitting off of the toil of others, himself. But I digress.

    For today, it’s okay to be proud to be an American, knowing that much work needs to be done to ensure independence for all of us.

    • lillymckim

      our gun-toting defiance?

      • VL Towler

        Um…. yeah?

        • TugboatPhil

          Thanks for explaining that in such detail.

          • VL Towler

            Here’s some old English (Latin) to help you, “Res ipsa Loquitur.”

    • Boon Companion

      Thanks, Utopian Pugressive. Guess what, the malcontents you want to pander to will NEVER EVER be satisfied. Ever been involved with an addict? Same thing. Just plug that disease into the macro. Celebrate what America IS, not what it “could be.” Count your blessings. And while you’re at it, read a good book for once in your life:

      LION OF LIBERTY, Harlow Giles Unger

      • VL Towler

        Well, that’s really going to make me want to read it. My fellow Americans, isn’t part of our freedom having independent thought? I refuse to disparage any group on independence day. Happy Fourth, everyone!

    • Alej

      “If we continue to see the country compartmentalized by our gated communities, our gun-toting defiance, our belief that he who is not like me is an alien and does not deserve to live here.. ”
      A) Vote-toting damn sure doesn’t work, and,
      B) Alien cultures like the knee grow hate-America crap I see here doesn’t deserve to live here. Wonder why the 1950s and before were called the “Happy Days?” They were before integration ruined our schools and general culture level. The government poured dirty water into clean water and expected to get clean water.

    • Dave Steele

      How about this instead:
      Immigrants come here and assimilate into American society like they did until oh, the mid to late 20th century. You know, learn English, follow the laws and rules for polite society, try to make something of themselves instead of asking – nay, demanding – that Americans coddle them and provide for their every need and accomodate their language, cultures, mores.

      Those that you call ‘potential criminals’ are alone responsible for their own destiny.

      You keep the hope and change, I’ll keep my guns and religion.

    • txsrangers

      Yes. Let’s blame those evil coorporations for telling us what to consume and not take responsibility for ourselves. You sure you’re not a closet liberal?

  • Deb Scott

    lefties have taken all the fun and joy out of schools by canceling Christmas, Easter, Halloween,&now 4th of July,&probably Memorial Day, now they are attempting the same for the country as a whole-they must be really miserable in their drab little lives and they want to share it with the rest of us

    • $1311628 End of Days pass this on.

  • SJF **

    Well, Chris Rock and all others…. why the F*** are you America haters still here??? LEAVE! PLEASE!!! Please leave~! We promise you won’t be missed!

    • dww208

      They would but then they come to the realization that no other country wants them.

      • D J M

        That, here is where the money is.

  • disqus_GSA82JzSup

    Why don’t all of you unhappy America haters move to a country that will kill you if you start this mad ranting against the country and it’s gov’t. America ain’t perfect, but it ain’t bad. To use an old saying “LOVE IT OR LEAVE IT”

  • Realright

    Most on the left have no idea what this nation is about. They are hateful spoiled rotten little punks that think the world owes them. Were it within my power, every one of these America hating cretins would be re-born in a nation like North Korea.

  • LEL

    What exactly is the problem for these dispicable azzholes?

  • Clover11111

    If they’re ashamed of being an American, go to Cuba. I’m sure they will enjoy the freedoms that Raul’s regime will give them…not!

    Rock needs to remember that those white people that he so abhors made him a MULTI-MILLIONAIRE!

    He also needs to ask that mixed race individual in the White House that he’s partied with there as to why their party was for slavery and until recently had someone in the Senate that was a Klan member (Robert Byrd) and for those who disapprove (v) it is what it is.

  • Wes Lamb

    Chris Rock should be ashamed of himself for making such comments! He does our country and its people a real disservice! If you don’t like it here, Chris, please leave!

    • The__Bobster

      Moon Rock is the moron who wanted to kill Ken Starr.

  • FLguy71

    Liberals gained control of the educational system, then taught only the bad parts of American history and none of the good, and we have generations now like this who hate their own country. Now the liberals can take the next step and say they want to ‘remake’ America (fundamentally change?) to they will have a base to elect and support their efforts to destroy the country most of us grew up loving. We ARE a free country, and just to show this, you’re free to leave it if you don’t like it. We don’t keep you here, unlike other countries where they build walls to keep people in.

  • J Harris

    Thank you Chris I will enjoy my freedom today that allows you the freedom to say something stupid just to self promote yourself and make money You Asshole, while you are out making money for yourself you make life difficult for the millions of blacks trying to make a better life for themselves..

  • Michele Vick

    Purge the left now. These are soulless rats. They hate the country yet use our blood and tressure to command the globe.

  • NCRelite

    These people are too cynical to allow themselves to be happy. People risk life and limb to come to this country! God bless America! She is a beacon of light in the darkness

  • welovetheUSA

    Lets buy Chris Rock a on way ticket to the country of his choice……….

  • zoomwhat

    You morons are able to make these vile, hateful racist comments about the USA because you are free. You are free because brave Americans fought and continue to fight for your right to do so. Personally, I wish you’d just shut the hell up, because it makes me wonder why ignorance and classlessness are worth fighting for. I’d suggest that (old cliche’ but it fits…) if you hate the USA so much, just leave.

  • ErnieErnie

    I must have missed the memo to white people to not attend his concerts, boycott any all TV show he’s on and do not buy tickets or attend any of his movies. We are allowed to enjoy the 4th since a hell of a lot of white people died defending this country and a lot of others Rocky boy.

  • TugboatPhil

    Have a happy Independence Day! That includes patriots, citizens and even the grumbling, miserable lefties that can’t stop hating.

    To the tweeters above still holding a grudge toward a slavery that never
    oppressed them, be thankful the rebels beat the British. They gave us a
    Constitution that included provisions for a slavery that was made legal
    by England, and yet also gave us a form of government and the means to
    abolish it.

    Our country is not working like it was designed, but it’s NOT because
    there isn’t enough government involvement. All we need to do is read
    the Constitution and learn what restrictions were intended to be on that

  • Israel S.Right

    Hey, Chris Rock, and the rest of you hollywood weekend-liberals along with the clueless liberal-catfish, look around you. Everything you have and love was brought to you by our Constitution and free-market capitalism. Our constitution abolished slavery, solidified civil rights and allowed more personal freedom than any other country could want. But don’t fret. Hitler, mao, Stalin, chavez, castro, jong ill, Marx, franco and many others would take your side. You’re in good company, huh?

  • disqus_9o8mzTNnfn

    The left is coming up with their own salute (no more right hand over your heart) and their own commemorative days. The salute is the right arm bent across, but away from, the chest with a closed fist. All of the Christian and white national holidays will be ignored in favor black and socialist holidays. May Day, May 1st will be a big one.

  • Gas_Passer

    Liberalism in a mental disease.

  • alexlamb

    Truly appalling!

  • RonMay

    What if a “white person” said something like that?

  • ErnieErnie

    I’m still waiting for the WET channel. It will never happend because the politically correct sponsors won’t support that.

  • Michele Vick

    The left wants to destroy the nation state. This is part of their idiology. As some point if we are to survive as a country they’re going to have to be dealt with.

  • dww208

    Let’s pull out a world map and have these jackasses point to a country they would prefer to reside over the USA and then send them.

  • Dick Tater

    Too bad that some of the a$$hats who’ve commented here can’t spend a few years as slaves in a 3rd world sh!thole. Maybe that would offer a dose of perspective.

  • Colonel_Bat_Guano

    So if it’s so bad here, leave dipshit!

  • $1311628

    There have been slaves throughout history and it’s not pretty. To act out in a vengeful expression is telling of what kind of character you posess. We all MUST walk out our acts be they good or bad that is up to convictions we live by. Love is the most difficult path to tred while living on this Earthly plane. The world cannot comprehend The Almighty’s love.

  • Crash Froelich

    Thank you Department of Education and the NEA, cranking out heads full of garbage for forty years. You’ve done a great job of degrading the culture by reducing the knowledge and skepticism of the public school-educated citizen to the level of education majors.

  • alexlamb

    Don’t be fooled people like Chris Rock really would like to turn America into a former Rhodesia and kick Whites out. To people like Chris Rock who deeply beleiev in critical race theory the white man is responsible for the ills of the world and their plight and so the white man should be either enslaved after taken his stuff to give it to blacks for restitution for slavery or simply just kill the white man.
    Chris Rock is RACIST!
    It is time to call those race baiters what they are, and to their faces, RACIST!

  • Dave Steele

    Celebrate freedom: deport a leftist to the hell-hole of their choice.

  • Chief544

    I wonder if Chris celebrated Juneteenth Day? I wonder if he knows about Junteetnth Day?

  • Discochip

    Interesting to note that Mr. Lincoln and his cabinet had discussions on how to handle the problem of freed slaves and a suggestion was made that since they were brought here from Africa, then they should be given a chance to return to Africa. Some did return, most stayed, because America was better than the place they lived. They knew that they couldn’t return to their native homeland because there were Africans waiting there, repeat: Africans, who would once again sell them into slavery. So anyone who complains about slavery and events that happened hundreds of years ago doesn’t have a clue.
    Question: If you were taken from America in chains and sold into slavery on another continent, were subsequently freed and offered a free ride back, would you not want to go back to your homeland?

  • John Quinton

    Chris rock aint all that anyway, Cry baby loser. you hate the USA , but you love her Money$$$$ Hypocrites all of ya

  • Eric Overgaard

    If I hated it that much living in America, I would move. I guess they would just rather complain. It must be part of their identity. I challenge anyone to name me a perfect country with people living in it.

  • Gas_Passer

    American haters don’t feel good unless they are hating on something.

  • Lardbrick

    If you don’t like America, please feel free to leave — immediately!! I am sure that you would enjoy living in a third world country or one that limits your rights of free speech to talk bad about America. So keep talking but please do so while you are packing your freaking suitcase. And take the non-working, society drags with you. I’d rather have hard working illegal immigrants than scum like Chris Rock in this country. They know what it is like and would love to be here as citizens. He appreciates and knows nothing about freedom (or slavery for that matter). Chris Rock sucks.

  • John Stark

    These haters don’t deserve to live in this country. If it’s so bad then get the F— out. You are garbage.

  • Obamasucks69

    I hear Mexicao is great for all who hate america just walk over the border. no one will stop you.

  • markaburns

    All of you who hate America can carry your happy arses off to another country. We won’t miss you. But I got a feeling you won’t leave because you know another country wouldn’t put up with your whining and moaning.

  • dww208

    I have an idea, black only Chris Rock comedy shows, don’t allow ticket sales to whites, that will teach them.

    Chris Rock…What did you expect. The man makes good money doing his sniveling race act.

  • Random Person

    Love it or leave it, asses. And chris rock should be ashamed with all the money he’s made.

  • Sean Braisted

    “The Declaration of Independence led directly to emancipation, @chrisrock. No nation with that as a foundation could long tolerate slavery.” A great sentiment, but the country we emancipated ourselves from barred slavery long before we did, and they passed laws fighting the slave trade over a half-century before the civil war. #StillLoveAmerica #WartsandAll

  • DoubIenaughtspy

    Tiresome leftist asses. Only time they are joyful is when our rights are being eroded.

  • AndyNY

    So, how much longer will blacks who were NEVER SLAVES continue to hate on whites WHO COULDN’T OWN SLAVES EVEN IF THEY WANTED TO? Slavery was ended in America, by Americans. Virtually everyone who was a slave, or a slave master is DEAD. Yet blacks that were born free, and have risen to the top of society (like CHRIS ROCK) carry on the hate. WTF.

  • Anna Hall

    I have to resort to the age old question that no one on the left ever wants to answer: If this place is so horrible, WHY DO YOU LIVE HERE? Non-hypocritical people tend to not live in places that they say are evil hell holes, yet these people have no trouble taking advantage of the country that their “enslaved ancestors” helped build. Aren’t they just as guilty, then?

  • Mary

    Never forget the white people that made you free, that did not go along
    with the others that enslaved you. Never forget the white people that
    died in the war, to set you free. Never forget the white people that
    marched with you and were killed by the KKK along side of you. Never
    forget that Blacks actually formed The Texas Republican Party to get rid of the racist Democrats, Never forget that Democrats passed the Fugitive slave law, Never forget that when Lincoln proposed freeing the slaves 100% of the Republicans voted for it and only 23% of Democrats voted for it, Never forget in 1868 when they passed the 14th amendment EVERY Republican voted for the bill EVERY Democrat voted against it. Never forget in 1872 Congressional hearings, the Democrats admitted to starting The KKK so they could stop the spread of the Republican party because at that time all blacks were Republican.
    Never forget between 1870 and 1875 Republicans in congress passed many
    civil rights laws for blacks, the the Democrats took over in 1892 and
    REPEALED ALL the civil rights laws, which enabled the Democrats to pass
    the Jim Crow Laws. It was Roosevelt who turned blacks into Democrats by
    giving money, housing, food, clothing and jobs to them. With government
    handouts he bought their votes. Now obama is trying to do the same
    thing. Why is it, I know more about black history than most blacks? I
    didn’t just look it up and find it, although I did use google to be
    accurate on the exact dates. I learned this when I went to school, They
    do not teach this any more in schools, I wonder why.
