A clever bumper sticker from Heh:


Bumper sticker jingoism totally rules because it acts as a clear marker for morons. It's like they are branding themselves. I, for one, am glad for the helpful indicator.

Painted patriotic poodles need no bumper stickers:

The line of thinking that I don't quite understand is the "Proud to be American" bumper stickers. This is all fine and well...but why are they telling us that? We're IN the USA. Obviously, if they were excessively shamed to be American, they would move elsewhere. (On a side note, I think it would be cool to market bumper stickers that say "I'm OK with being American". That would be for those who really don't have a strong opinion on the matter.)
My point is (I think), it's not a stretch to show patriotism in one's own country. How about going over to a country that hates Americans and displaying that pride? Now THAT would be making a point.

Someone on my street has an "I support pointless jingoism" stucker with the little read white & blue ribbon. Makes me giggle every time.

Speaking of those lovely magnetic ribbons, have they taken to turning them sideway and therefore, into a Jesus fish out your way? Yeah, fun.

Love this quote..."The point of public relations slogans like "Support our troops" is that they don't mean anything... That's the whole point of good propaganda. You want to create a slogan that nobody's going to be against, and everybody's going to be for. Nobody knows what it means, because it doesn't mean anything. Its crucial value is that it diverts your attention from a question that does mean something: Do you support our policy? That's the one you're not allowed to talk about." Noam Chomsky
