"€œGod willing, with the force of God behind it, we shall soon experience a world
without the United States and Zionism."€ -- Iran President Ahmadi-Nejad

The Democrats almost always seem defensive about their level of patriotism. Almost any criticism of their positions of defense, whether it be about our military, our battle in Iraq, or the security of our borders, are almost guaranteed to be met with cries of "you're questioning my patriotism."

I've always found it curious that their reactions are almost always so.

Then, you have situations such as this described by Jack Kelly:
When Democrats in the 43rd state legislative district in suburban Seattle met April 5 to select delegates to the state convention, they refused to begin their deliberations by saying the Pledge of Allegiance:

"At the mere mention of doing the pledge there were groans and boos," wrote Web logger Eli Sanders, who attended the caucus. "Then, when the district chair put the idea of doing the pledge up to a vote, it was overwhelmingly voted down. One might more accurately say the idea of pledging allegiance to the flag...was shouted down."

Can anyone explain this? If you are afraid of being viewed as unpatriotic and wonder why others might view you as such, actions like this do not help your cause.
