It is kind of like the Indians saying they got a raw deal when selling Manhattan and bringing it up every time someone gives then ANYTHING close to the subject. Then, claiming to be Americans. It doesn't really matter if their ancestors got a raw deal or not. IF they want to be an American, fine. It they want to be from whatever tribe and not partake in American, fine.
But this half * stuff sucks. You either ARE or you are NOT an American. If you don't like how things turned out, you could decide to be a traitor to the country you were born into OR you can just leave.
I'm not exactly sure what position you're arguing. Are you saying that criticism is tantamount to treason?
Do not mistake precedent for justification.
