It's Time to Occupy Our Symbols
By Sarah A. W. Fitts | February 12, 2012
(The Huffington Post) Last week's CPAC speeches made me angry. Somehow, the keynote speakers talk as if they alone know what it means to be a true American. But CPAC attendees do not reflect the American values we should cherish most. I am a patriotic American and I love America. And I think it's time for the rest of us to speak up and stop letting right wing media and media-loving right wing politicians put words in our mouths. It's time to take back our American symbols. It's time to wave our American flag, admire our Constitution, and it's time to protect our purple mountains majesty and our amber waves of grain. This land is our land and we love it.
