I am questioning this guy's patriotism!

The liberals are always complaining that conservatives question their patriotism. We don't, mind you, but simply saying or inferring that a liberal is weak on defense issues is, in a liberal's mind, paramount to questioning their patriotism. Now I'm not going to question anyon'e patriotism because they disagree with me about this or that policy. That's all well and good and while I don't think it makes you de facto patriotic to question a certain policy, it neither makes you de facto patriotic to support it.

But I don't mind question ACTUALLY questioning the patriotism of lefties (or righties) who hate on America and/or blame it first for any ill they can find. (I've done it before and will do it again.) Here is a fine example of hating America and NOT BEING PATRIOTIC!

And that guy is a Slate columinst. Here's is their explanation of why they didn't run the cartoon.
