Loyalty Day? Loyalty Day? Patriot Act? Loyalty Day? WTF?

This was, I suppose, predictable in the 2012 election year, but it is also morally and intellectually indefensible for the US Government to set aside May 1 (the old Soviet "May Day," by chance) as "Loyalty Day."


In order to recognize the American spirit of loyalty and the sacrifices that so many have made for our Nation, the Congress, by Public Law 85-529 as amended, has designated May 1 of each year as "Loyalty Day." On this day, let us reaffirm our allegiance to the United States of America, our Constitution, and our founding values.
NOW, THEREFORE, I, BARACK OBAMA, President of the United States of America, do hereby proclaim May 1, 2012, as Loyalty Day. This Loyalty Day, I call upon all the people of the United States to join in support of this national observance, whether by displaying the flag of the United States or pledging allegiance to the Republic for which it stands.
IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this first day of May, in the year of our Lord two thousand twelve, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and thirty-sixth.

To put this in the language of newspeak:

Big Brother say goodthink must be bellyfeel
