Do rightists understand that "American values" include the values of religious, ethnic & cultural minorities, as well as the LGBT community?

Too often rightists use the term "American values" as a synonym for the values held by white, male, Christian conservatives.

But that definition is too narrow. If you're an American then your values are necessarily "American values." This includes Muslim-Americans, black people, progressives, the LGBT community, and anybody else who legally resides in America.

    All those groups that conservatives hate consider themselves loyal Americans.

      The names are simply accurate descriptions of liberals. Official it is "Idiot- Liberal" as coined by VI Lenin. Only an idiot thinks Obama or Hilery or Bernie is gonna give you everything your heart desires ....for free.

    Dems want to take religion out of everything, NO prayer in schools, NO religious symbols anywhere they can see it.. THE DO WANT TO KILL UNBORN and EVEN BORN BABIES.. THEY SUPPORT MURDERING CHILDREN as long as its not a ILLEGAL ONE..

    "American Values" are not defined by the left. The values that you mention above are not the real values of the left or the DNC as demonstrated by the actions of the people that live in the places where they govern.

    Wrong. We understand "American values" to be the values that have been traditionally shared by all Americans. Those values should be shared by everyone regardless of race, religion, ethnicity etc. This is expressed in the motto of the US: e pluribus unum : out of many, one.

    American values are those values to which most Americans subscribe REGARDLESS of political affiliation.

    Values that appeal to primarily one political party are not American values.

    FTFY.

    The American values we Rightists refer to are love of freedom, patriotism, love of country, hard work and personal responsibility.

    We on the right encourage Muslim-Americans, black people, progressives, the LGBT community, and anybody else who legally resides in America to adopt those American Values we cherish.

    Unfortunately, all too many Americans have different values, like wanting to force other people to do things they do not wish to, limiting freedoms, anti-Americanism, and dependence on government.

    Wrong. If someone moves here and yet keeps their values then those values are still the values of whatever country they came from. You libs really are dumbfvcks.

    As long as I have the right to behead someone for disagreeing with my religion, so be it.

    Yes, as long as they are advocating the following of the Constitution.. The rest is complete buIIshit.

    For instance refusing to denounce al Qaeda would not be an American value. Wanting to implement Sharia Law would be unconstitutional.
