Apparently, Michelle wasn't the only one

Guess what these fine American patriots on the campus of Brown University are referring to:

"It was the first time in our lives we felt proud to be American," Sarah Schoenbrun '09 later recalled. Deanna Saunders '11 noted, "My friend said she'd never sung 'The Star Spangled Banner' before. But that night she sang it like she really meant it."
Yeah, that was election night. And the author of the piece somehow believes that this contradicts "the conventional wisdom that college campuses in general, and Brown's in particular, have become hotbeds of left-leaning, blame-America-first cynics."  Riiiiight.  Because patriotism is all about The One.
One day a few weeks after the election, Kaitlyn Scott '10 sat in the Blue Room eating her lunch. She was wearing a T-shirt with an American flag emblazoned on the front. "I haven't taken this out of the drawer in years," she said, "and finally I feel like I can wear it again."
You know what?  Fuck you, Kaitlyn. And fuck your classmates, too. Frankly, you're what's wrong with this country.  Sadly, I doubt that you'll ever wake up from your Cult of Personality and realize that.
