This doesn't mention the teen
who was suspended for 10 days for refusing to remove a flag from his locker. He lost
a relative in the attack (9/11) and was honoring that memory.
Broken Arrow, Oklahoma School
officials removed "God Bless America" signs from schools in fear that someone might
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. Why? 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
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 11, 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,
(NOTE FROM WEBMASTER --- Provided they respect the
laws of our land, the customs of our land, learn the language of our land, love and
defend our land, and enter the country and remain here
legally, NOT ILLEGALLY).
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 and Vietnam (add to
this: Kuwait, Afganistan, Iraq , and the Alamo!) to win and defend our freedom.
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.
God is in our pledge, our
National Anthem, nearly every patriotic song, and in our founding documents. We honor
His birth, death, and resurrection as holidays, and 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
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. 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 to
(immediately?) take full advantage of one other
great American freedom, the right to leave.
