Hey, you know what I think?

…it's UNAMERICAN to lie to the American public about the necessity for war in Iraq, and then to revise the reasons for going to war every time one is proven wrong.

…it's UNAMERICAN to threaten judges with removal from office or even violence if they don't vote the way you want them to vote.

…it's UNAMERICAN to force schools to teach religious creation stories and beliefs as the equivalent of well established biological and physical science.

…it's UNAMERICAN to call someone a traitor merely when they dissent from the policies of the current government.

These are just a few selections from an excellent diary by Steven D. You can see the whole list here and find even more examples in the comments section. I propose we think up our own examples – it won’t be difficult – and start using that word at every opportunity.

Because what they’re doing to our country is UNAMERICAN.
