Regarding the article on aledged patriotism:
1) We are all immigrants, even the native Americans
came from somewhere else. We all brought our
culture from foreign lands. America was founded on FREEDOM
not Christianity!!! Christianity came across the
Atlantic just as Native American religion came
across the land bridge from Asia.
2) This idea of America being a multi cultural community has served only to
dilute our sovereignty and our national identity. I defy you or anyone else to produce even one trace
of evidence that this is true. The implication in this
sentence is clear, "White Christians are OK,everyone
else is a burden on society." Why don't we get out
the white sheets, I'm sure the KKK would agree with
this sick and perverse lie!
3) You said, "We speak ENGLISH, not Spanish,
Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, Russian, or
any other language."
YES WE DO! What rock are you living under.
AMERICANS do speak all those languages and more!
You left off Lakota and Navaho, languages which saved
our butts in WWII. I dare to remind you that when your
ancestors came to American they continued to speak
their native language for many years, and only
stopped as a result of WWI and the stigma of anything
German. My wife and I speak Mandarin Chinese, and I am proud
of that. It is a part of her culture, and now mine.
We do speak Chinese in public at times, and if you
really want to know that I am telling her she is
beautiful in the check-out line at Wal-mart, you can
go out and learn Chinese the way other countries
4) You said, "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."
It is precisely because of this kind of close-minded
intolerance that our founding fathers came to this
continent! I'll bet you'd be offended if Muslim
prayers were said at school, or if schools posted
Zen Buddhism stories. Our founding fathers were smart
enough to know that religion and government don't
mix! Give the people the right to practice any religion
they see fit, and keep the government out of it!
THAT IS THE PRINCIPLE OUR COUNTRY WAS FOUNDED UPON!!! If
you want to live in a country that is Christian only
(or English only for that matter) why don't YOU
leave and move to some intolerant theocracy ruled by
radical religious leaders! Besides the writer of this
article is telling you a lie, our national motto is "Our
Freedoms We Prize and Our Rights We Will Maintain",
not "In God We Trust", that is on our money as a
result of abandoning the gold and silver standard.
If I were you I wouldn't trust anyone to give me advice
about civics who obviously knows nothing about US
History! Or is it more sinister? Is it that the
truth is getting in the way of his message of hate,
so he makes things up and twists the truth to convince
you that his/her attack on American fundamentals is
in fact patriotism.
I must say that articles like this offend me so much
I can't even think. The idea that something so UN-
AMERICAN would call itself patriotic is disgusting.
I am proud of my country. I am proud of our freedom
and proud of our diversity. I will defend my country to
the death from those who would take away my freedom
or dilute the protections of the constitution! The
idiot who wrote this article is clearly setting his sights
on anything not white or Christian. This is an
attack on my freedom and the freedom of my countrymen, and
I will rise up to defend her! Religious and ethnic
intolerance needs to be stamped out in America! I
don't care what religion you want to practice, or
language you want to speak, but don't you dare tell
me what I should do!!!
My country is under attack all right, but not from
O'Sama. My country is under attack from both the
elements in power who would like to dilute the
constitution, and from the racist elements who want
to use 9/11 as an excuse to turn America Land of the
Free into America Do it My Way or Get Out! We must all
be vigilant against these subtle attacks. That is how> Nazi Germany started, buy preaching intolerance of
Jews and others who weren't "German" enough, just
like this article!!!! Let the Government use it's
resourses to protect us as best it can against
organized para-military attack, and let us, the
American people fight to protect our freedom and way
of life from those among us who use lies and
emotional appeals to spread their message of hate and
The price of freedom is vigilance!!!!!!!! Don't
fall under the spell of those spreading hate. They will
tell lies and half-truths and appeal to your
emotion, like this profane article. The logic in the writers
arguments would earn a failing grade in any Jr. High
English class! It appeals to emotion of those who> are
unable or unwilling to stop and think what the true
meaning of his/her message is, HATE.
I encourage you to read this artical, and send it to others. This country is struggling with its own foundation. This is not a time to change our ideals and become rasics, or become closed minded to the beliefs of others that we don't understand or even understand. This is a time to learn from our own history and focus on the true enemy amoung us.
If you would care to recieve a copy of the letter that this is in response to, send a request to Team Gold Bond at our e-mail address and I will send you a copy.
