The angry left’s July 4 birthday cards from hell is the big crazy on this week’s Insanity Wrap.

- God bless, you know, the thing
Before we get to today’s big story, here’s a short video to make you lose whatever little faith you might still have in humanity.

#ProTip: Lady, you’re too fragile to enjoy — or even just vaguely comprehend — a country so awesome that people fly the flag from their massive pickup trucks.
Happy Birthday, America: We Hate You
Professional ingrate Jessica Chastain gave America the finger for Independence Day, and other lefties engaged in similar Oscar Wilde-level repartee.
My dear friend and PJ Media colleague Stephen Kruiser wrote on Monday’s Morning Briefing something I’ve been thinking for a long time: “I remember when Democrats used to get angry when right-wing nutjobs like me would accuse them of hating this great country.”
Their outrage at the accusations was faked. Their hate for America is real.
And what better time to tell someone what you really think of them than on their birthday?
Katy Perry had something to say about that, and it was about as deep and introspective as one of her drab pop lyrics.
“Baby you’re a firework” is a 10 but women in the US have fewer rights than an actual sparkler smh

What the hell does that even mean?
The Washington Post’s Paul Waldman chose Independence Day to “declare our independence from the Founding Fathers” because the “American right has found in the framers an extraordinarily effective tool with which they can roll back social progress and undermine our democracy.”
The Founders wrote the Constitution to create a federal government strong enough to survive (unlike under the Articles of Confederation) but weak enough not to become tyrannical. There’s a lesson there that Waldman missed — or did he?
NPR, which is funded in part with our tax dollars, this year decided to skip its annual July 4 reading of the Declaration of Independence.
“This July 4th we break with tradition,” the network explained. “Instead of a reading of the Declaration of Independence @NPRinskeep examines what equality means and has meant in this document.”
Blue Check enviro Aaron Weiss said NPR’s move was “long overdue” and described our founding document as “deeply offensive and racist sentences.”
The Declaration birthed the philosophical revolution — backed on occasion with the armed might of a free people –— that would eventually sweep away slavery, establish universal individual rights, and that began the global process of decolonization.
But never you mind all that. We’re the bad guys and the Declaration is racist because reasons.
Before We Continue, Here’s a Short Video to Restore Your Faith in Everything…
It’s an oldie but a goodie: In 2012 when San Diego accidentally lit off all 7,000 fireworks at once.
The crowd went crazy for it, of course, because America.

Meteorologists predict rain, pee down own legs.
These are the same guys who show up at your party — because they know someone who knows someone who actually got invited — and then complain about your beer.
Quote of the Week
From LGBTQ Nation:
Things may seem pretty bleak in America right now, but the LGBTQ community and our allies have seen bleak times before, and we’ve lived to tell about them—to sing about them, to dance about them. We’ve survived oppression, AIDS, and a whole lot more. So, it’s no wonder that Gloria Gaynor’s 1978 hit is an essential LGBTQ anthem!
I’m so sorry that, just like the rest of us, our LGBTQ friends had to endure the crass commercialization of Pride Month.
Biden’s ’70s Show
That’s gotta hurt:
According to a new CIVIQS rolling job-approval poll, Biden’s job approval has plummeted to 30% – with 57% flatly disapproving of the job he’s doing.
Broken down by age group, just 22% of those aged 18-34 approve of the job Biden is doing, 27% for those 35-49, and 32% of those aged 50-64 thought Biden was doing an ok job. Where’s Biden’s support coming from? Old people – as 39% of those over the age of 65-years-old think Biden’s handling his job well.
I don’t know why the 65-and-up crowd is behind the curve, but they’ll catch up to the rest of us.
But when a Democrat can only garner 39% of the older vote, he’s toast.
Probably because of scenes like this:
