Not too long ago, in Paris France, the Islamic community leaders there approached the city government and asked for some minor allowance for their people, they said it was asked out of respect for “our religion”. The city council, or whatever the governing body is there, said “OK, we can do that”, out of respect for the Islamic religion. They asked for something else, of course out of respect for their religion, it was no major deal, so once again, out of respect for Islam and their standards of religion, they consented. Well, once again the Islamic leaders in Paris approach the city fathers and this time requested shutting down a whole city block so they could have this mass prayer rally in the street. Once again “This out of respect for our religion”, the leaders of the Islamic community said. Well, this time, because the closing of a whole block would be a serious hamper to citizens etc; the city council denied the request.
Whattttt! What do you mean No!…..You have no respect for our religion, no respect for Islam….you discriminate against us….How dare you deny Islam this right.
So, instead of abiding by the city’s ruling, they defied the city, and the city of Paris, not interested in starting some riot or something even worse decided not to confront them, let them do their thing, and more or less moved on. That is how I more or less understood the story.
As they say….Coming to a neighborhood near you. Enter The United States.
Channel 47 Fox News, Sean Hannady and other 47 broadcasters lash out at radical Islam, one commentator goes even further and she says the Radical factions do not negotiate. they do not compromise, they are killing people who disagree with their cause. The only terms they understand is killing, so we gotta kill them. Some others have gone as far to say…Look they behead one American we kill a thousand of them. etc;.
Islamic leaders go nuts, they want an immediate apology, want Hannady and all the rest fired, no better yet, they want….No they demand that Fox 47 is taken off the air. This out of respect for our religion.
In another scenario, an elderly man, a WWII Veteran who has a flag on his front porch is approached by the city and informed that the American flag he flies proudly in front of his home must be taken down. It threatens and intimidates the Islamic community.
Awwwwl……Ain’t that too bad. Wouldn’t want to intimidate anyone now would we.
Do I sound sarcastic? You bet I am.
The first thing I did is run right out and buy a brand new American flag. Ol Glory flies in front of my home as we speak. And furthermore….She is not…Will not and Shall not come down. If they don’t like that they do have several options. One, they can look the other way. Two, How about growing up and realize that this is a nation of freedom. Three, They might consider hoping the first plane back to wherever it is they came from, (a one way ticket of course), and we’ll call it good. No fuss, no muss. they don’t like the American flag, fine they go home, and we fly our flag. they don’t see it ….They’re happy, I’m happy We’re all happy!
This is The United States of America. We have freedom of choice. We have freedom to speak. And we all enjoy the right of flying the American Flag if we as citizens so choose to do. Now, if you really want to see one Hell of a display of Civil disobediance….then you come over to my house and tell me that I can no longer fly The American Flag. I not only tell you where to stick it, but I will not take the flag down. I will then call CBS,NBC, ABC, CNN, FOX News, Our news paper, local stations, and every other media source I can think of, and we will all have a little chat about the Red White and Blue, America, One Nation Under God, and Apple Pie and the American Flag. But…That flag shall not and will not come down. If it’s go to jail time…So be it…but when I get out…Up she goes, Ol Glory shall wave proudly before my home!
Finally, it is past time for Americans to stand up and speak their peace. Enough is enough. We have rights too. We can’t even go to the Airport anymore. We can’t drive down the street without a camera watching us as we go. They trace our phone calls, they question our loyalty, treat us as if are the terrorist’s, and that we as Americans have to give up our rights so these clowns who have declared Jihad can have it easier to do whatever it is they want to do. People need to step up and be counted. They need to exercise their rights. they need to tell their congressman, Senator and even the President that they are the tax payers here, and they have had enough and shall not any longer compromise their freedom, here at home in their own country. raise your flag! Fly it proudly! Tell everyone you are an American and proud of it. Make it clear that you will not stand down.
compromise no more!
God Bless the USA!
