The Boy Who Cried Wolf

Issue

Do you recall a story of the boy who cried wolf? What about the 71-year-old toddler who accuses adversaries of treason?

We have growing cancer when a politician tells his countrymen to set aside differences during an unusually long speech while insisting on unity, but a week later turns on those who did not applaud his empty promises by calling them un-American and maybe even “treasonous” for failing to clap.

He asks the crowd if we can call that treason? Why not? They certainly didn’t seem to love our country very much, thereby making it more difficult to agree on a long list of controversial national issues.

Treason is a crime for the most extreme acts against a nation, like selling out your own country. Can anyone recall any one person attacking everyone and every nation but Putin and Russia?
