Ah yes, I remember those times the ones on the left turned children into living bombs, hung good men from bridges after lighting them on fire, tossed gay men from roof tops, raped and genitally mutilated young children as well as women, targeted civilians with explosives as well as sniper fire… Oh wait that was the right side.
How about when they destroyed cultural landmarks in the name of their religion, beheaded men and women on camera, and were caught on the Flir camera of a drone gang banging a goat… Nope that was right side as well.
Ooof, the whataboutism and nationalism is off the charts in this one.
First off go ahead and downvote me, I know you can’t resist.
US military OEF/OIF veteran here, you’re really going to make me do this.
I’m a patriot who understands the USA has some serious fucking problems but I don’t cower and hide them and pretend we don’t have domestic radical extremists.
It’s why military members are sworn to protect against both foreign AND DOMESTIC threats.
First off, I’m muting replies to this because this isn’t for you, you’re already too lost in the sauce and drank the koolaid too deeply. This is for anyone else who thinks you even remotely have a point, because you absolutely don’t.

As a veteran and a patriot I will gladly talk about all the good and fucking evil America has done. I’m not a fake nationalist who will pretend that shit didn’t happen because I want to hold my countrymen accountable and make this place better.
People like the poster above me is too deep into whataboutism and nationalism to ever see the fucking point.
