HELLO! THIS IS AMERICA!
Broken Arrow, Oklahoma School officials remove "God Bless America" signs from schools
in fear that someone might be offended.
Channel 12 News in Long Island, New York, orders flags removed from the
newsroom and red, white, and blue ribbons removed from the lapels of reporters.
Management did not want to appear biased and felt that our nations flag
might give the appearance that "they lean one way or another".
Berkeley, California bans U.S. Flags from being displayed on city fire
trucks because they didn't want to offend anyone in the community.
In an "act of tolerance" the head of the public library at Florida Gulf
Coast University ordered all "Proud to be an American" signs
removed so as to not offend international students.
I, for one, am quite disturbed by these actions of so-called American
citizens; and I am tired of this nation worrying about whether or not we
are offending some individual or their culture.
Since the terrorist attacks on September 11th, we have experienced
a surge in patriotism by the majority of Americans. However, the dust
from the attacks had barely settled in New York and Washington D.C.
when the "politically correct" crowd began complaining about the
possibility that our patriotism was offending others.
I am not against immigration, nor do I hold a grudge against
anyone who is seeking a better life by coming to America.
In fact, our country's population is almost entirely comprised of
descendants of immigrants; however, there are a few things that those
who have recently come to our country, and apparently some native
Americans, need to understand.
First of all, it is not our responsibility to continually try not to offend you
in any way. This idea of America being a multi-cultural community has served
only to dilute our sovereignty and our national identity.
As Americans, we have our own culture, our own society, our own language,
and our own lifestyle. This culture, called the "American Way"
has been developed over centuries of struggles, trials, and victories
by millions of men and women who have sought freedom.
Our forefathers fought, bled, and died at places such as Bunker Hill,
Antietam, San Juan, Iwo Jima, Normandy, Korea, Vietnam,
We speak English, not Spanish, Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, Russian,
or any other language. Therefore, if you wish to become part of our
society - learn our language!
"In God We Trust" is our national motto.
This is not some off-the-wall, Christian, Right Wing, political slogan;
it is our national motto. It is engraved in stone in the House of Representatives in our Capitol and it is printed on our currency.
We adopted this motto because Christian men and women, on
Christian principles, founded this nation; and this is clearly documented
throughout our history.
If it is appropriate for our motto to be inscribed in the halls of our
highest level of Government, then it is certainly appropriate
to display it on the walls of our schools. We turn to Him in prayer in times of crisis.
If God offends you, then I suggest you consider another part of the world
as your new home, because God is part of our culture and we are proud
to have Him.
We are proud of our heritage and those who have so honorably defended
our freedoms. We celebrate Independence Day, Memorial Day,
Veterans Day, and Flag Day.
We have parades, picnics, and barbecues where we proudly wave our flag.
As an American, I have the right to wave my flag, sing my national
anthem, quote my national motto, and cite my pledge whenever and
wherever I choose.
If the Stars and Stripes offend you, or you don't like Uncle Sam,
then you should seriously consider a move to another part of this planet.
The American culture is our way of life, our heritage, and we are proud of
it. We are happy with our culture and have no desire to change, and we
really don't care how you did things where you came from,
if it was so superior, go home.
We are Americans, like it or not, this is our country, our land,
and our lifestyle.
Our First Amendment gives every citizen the right to express his
opinion about our government, culture, or society, and we will allow you
every opportunity to do so.
But once you are done complaining, whining, and griping about our flag,
our pledge, our national motto, or our way of life,
I highly encourage you take advantage of one other great American freedom,
the right to leave.
If you agree, pass this onto other Americans!!
It is time to take a stand!!
MAY GOD BLESS AMERICA
LAND THAT WE LOVE!!!
