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.
if youre using #4thofJuly to make some huge historical statement about how blacks are still slaves expect an unfollow…not in the mood 2day

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.
Happy 4th of July America. Thanks for leading the way in war, corruption and brainwashing!!!

yeah. America became "independent" on the 4th of July but Blacks were still enslaved & being sold at auctions. OH but yall have a happy 4th
— Bianca (@BiancaPastel_) July 4, 2012
July 4th, 1776 Black people were slaves. Pieces of property in "America" not even considered fully human. Fuck you.

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.
Aaron Sorkin squeals America sucks http://t.co/G6d24nL2 We're seventh in literacy? Amongst the top 20 that is hair splitting and subjective

Aaron Sorkin squeals America sucks http://t.co/G6d24nL2 We're 178th in infant mortality? Because other countries don't count premies

More from Ace of Spades:
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.
People say America is too proud fora country that sucks. Oops, can't hear ya over the sound of our independence.

America sucks? I wanna see how you like it in a 3 world country, and see how much America sucks then #ungrateful
— Anna Sortzi (@asssortzi) July 4, 2012
Oh, you think it’s lame to be patriotic? I bet the soldiers who’ve given their lives for America appreciate selfish idiots like you. #TCOT

And this Twitter user sums it up in a nutshell.
My friend asked if I was free this weekend. Of course I am, this is America.
— Dom (@eriksdurm) July 4, 2012
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.
Happy white peoples independence day the slaves weren't free but I'm sure they enjoyed fireworks

@chrisrock Good one! I bet your Guatemalan house staff got a good chuckle.
— David Burge (@iowahawkblog) July 4, 2012
Some lessons for Mr. Rock.
The Declaration of Independence led directly to emancipation, @chrisrock. No nation with that as a foundation could long tolerate slavery.
— #NeverTrump (@lheal) July 4, 2012
Oh FFS, grow up. RT @chrisrock: Happy white peoples independence day the slaves weren't free but I'm sure they enjoyed fireworks

Truth is hard.
Update: Actor Don Cheadle finds Rock’s tweet absolutely guffaw-worthy.
"@chrisrock: Happy white peoples independence day the slaves weren't free but I'm sure they enjoyed fireworks" Haha

Update: Actor Zach Braff wants in on the action:
Slaves weren't freed for another 90 years. So maybe just enjoy some of the fireworks…
— Zach Braff (@zachbraff) July 4, 2012
Happy “Independence to Rip Off Other Celebrities’ Tweets” Day, Zach!
