In addition to being shockingly ignorant, this is pretty much the worst possible sentiment to be throwing out for the #FourthOfJuly in the time of Trump. Nice job!

Patriotism is weaponized by authoritarian communities and regimes. Some of us who grew up in the Christian Right are literally triggered by the God and country routine. And you know how you don’t address real, substantive divides? By saying hey let’s all do nationalism together!

Tweeted this last year. Now the task force for denaturalization (what an appropriate topic for #FourthofJuly2018) is in place. A few takeaways:

1. Thus far, only applies to immigrants who applied for citizenship under a fake name.
2. The concern is whether it will be expanded for other misrepresentations, intentional or not. Also, given this admin's track record: targeting certain communities.

All valid concerns. There are legal defenses available in some cases. Of course, this assumes access to counsel.
3. The legalities will be unfortunately lost on most people, and like so many other initiatives in this admin, there's a "psyop" angle: spread fear, create panic, make every nonwhite person feel insecure. Because the govt can still come after people even with weak cases.

1. It's the #FourthofJuly, and there's perhaps no better time to discuss Christian nationalism. So, let's talk.
2. Though this sinful confluence is particularly pronounced today, the truth is that broad swathes of American Christianity have united worship of God and empire. While extreme patriotism is already idolotrous, many Christians take spiritual allegiance even further.
3. This is quite vivid in churches that proudly display the American flag in their sanctuary, flying high over Bibles and baptismal fonts. Some even recite the pledge of allegiance during worship, swearing fealty to country in a place that ought to be reserved for the divine.

In Congress, July 4, 1776.
The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America.

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of...
... the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

Trolling is fun.
Hussein/Trump interior = identical minus small changes.
(World) news in rear literally placed same prior to each departure.
Placing that mug holder near the lamp was the hook.
Enjoy!

I was just visited by two Secret Service officers regarding my tweets about #tRump. I told them I have no thoughts, plans, or intent to harm tRump and I never have. They advised not to post anything that may be interpreted as a threat. I was impressed with their professionalism.
Many are asking what I tweeted that prompted a Secret Service visit today. I won't restate the long deleted tweets because it might be misinterpreted as a threat. Critiques of #tRump are fine providing they do not cross the line in a way that one may interpret as a threat.
One of the Secret Service officers had a folder with print outs of some of my past tweets and my article, "A Mental Health Counselor’s Views on Speculations About President Trump’s Mental Health" psychcentral.com/blog/a-mental-…. I gladly summarized for them the thesis of my article.
