Faced with a typically transnationalist CNN anchor, in the early 1990s, Charleton Heston once asked, “Who do you think you are? Switzerland?”
Flash-forward to today, questioning the patriotism of a town hall organizer, CNN’s Don Lemon (he of the short historical memory), gets, as Al Gore would say, snippy: “Can we lose that ‘real Americans thing? We’re all ‘real Americans.'”
Glad we cleared that up, old sport! Please inform CNN’s D. L. Hughley, who told the chairman of the Republican National Committee that the GOP convention last year “literally look[ed] like Nazi Germany”, and Susan Roesgen, who declared the April 15th Chicago Tea Party “unfit for family viewing” while you’re at it.
