A few choice tweets from our friends on the left celebrating America the only way they know how: by bringing the hate. As an extra added bonus, a few rollicking responses from the right.
From Dan Arel, a self-proclaimed “labor activist.”
OOOOOOHHHH, you're so avant-garde. Delicious. Tres risqué I'm sure. A burning flag. Ta da!

Joy Reid chimes in with this disagreeable tweet. Some of her lefty friends assist.
It's a strange Independence Day with a president who embarrasses us, his supine, shameless Party Men-and the millions who just don't care. https://t.co/M77P4PRTfx

I get ya. I almost feel like it could be one of the last.

Reid’s tweet also elicited this nauseating response:
I just can't with July 4 anymore. The more I look at history, the more I think it should be a day of atonement, not celebration.

Shaun King, the white black man, sends his love, retweeting a most disagreeable comment. WARNING: Crazy, stupid, obscene language.
Fuck the 4th. Fuck the flag. Fuck the national anthem.

This accurately represents how most of my friends feel. https://t.co/NCi5GZRQuJ

A priceless reply:
Finally, I was disappointed to read this from Matt Taibbi, a very sharp political analyst.
How many of the Declaration of Independence signatories would have re-thought things if shown a future tape of President Trump?
— Matt Taibbi (@mtaibbi) July 4, 2017
Sorry, Matt, but you left yourself wide open for this.
Good. Let's hate America on its birthday.

So endeth the lesson.
