Well Read Red: American Exceptionalism Revisited

program date: 
Mon, 12/13/2010

 Well Read Red, Tom Becker, reads an op-ed piece by Don Monkerud, "American Exceptionalism Revisited." Tom and Don's concern is that:

"Flag-waving politicians like Mike Huckabee, Mitt Romney, Rick Santorum, Mike Pence, and Newt Gingrich use the concept of "exceptionalism" to prove how much they love America. Such hyper-nationalism, usually tied to a Christian God, denies our common humanity with the rest of the world, undercuts international cooperation, and promotes an arrogant disregard for world opinion."
