In what appeared to be a thinly veiled reference to politics in the Age of Trump, Sen. John McCain on Monday warned Americans against “half-baked, spurious nationalism,” calling the abandonment of U.S. global leadership “unpatriotic.”
Speaking in Philadelphia, where he was being honored with the Liberty Medal by the National Constitution Center, McCain did not mention the president by name, but his words appeared aimed at Trump and his administration.
“To abandon the ideals we have advanced around the globe, to refuse the obligations of international leadership for the sake of some half-baked, spurious nationalism cooked up by people who would rather find scapegoats than solve problems,” he said, “is as unpatriotic as an attachment to any other tired dogma of the past that Americans consigned to the ash heap of history.”
In an apparent reference to white supremacists who sparked violence in Charlottesville, Va., in August, the former prisoner of war said: “We live in a land of ideals, not blood and soil.”
As you’ll see below, the half-baked white nationalists at Breitbart are very upset with McCain. Again.
The only thing soon to be on the “ash heap of history” is the globalist drivel spouted by John McCain. https://t.co/Wye714cpTs
