THIS SAYS IT ALL!!!!!

Channel 12 News in Long Island,

Why? Management did not want to

Berkeley, California bans U.S. Flags from being displayed on city fire trucks because

In an "act of tolerance" the head of the public library at Florida Gulf Coast University

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.
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.
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 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. 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!!
