My local paper, the Murray Ledger, has a message board on its online site. Murray is a very conservative community and there are always a lot of patriots on there. One such patriot is Joe. Joe likes to post a lot and really sticks it to the liberals. One of his recent post is this:
The biggest reason this country is in bad shape is not the republicans, it's the terrorist around the world. I know there is no way to change a liberal's mind but that's the fact. I agree we are in trouble but how would a democrat handled it any differently. You probably say we shouldn't have went to Iraq, well a lot of young folks don't feel that way. If they did , they wouldn't be joining the military every day knowing that's where they are going. I think they are very patriotic. What would you call them, idiots for joining. The liberals think that way, just let the terrorist come and do anything to us that they want, we will just stand there and say go ahead, fly airplanes into our buildings and bridges, we won't do anything. Well the republicans responded and I back them at all cost for trying to protect the people.
For simply stating the obvious he is attacked by some vulturous liberal:
Joe, just exactly who are these liberals who want to "just let the terrorist come and do anything to us that they want." I don't even think Ted Kennedy, John Kerry, Howard Dean, Micheal Moore, Jesse Jackson, Jane Fonda or George Soros want THAT. They might want to "promote the gay agenda" and "take our guns" but they don't want THAT.
So who are you talking about? People who hold onto the hope that there is always a better solution than the slaughter of our fellow man, whether it be "justified" or not? People who really do think and pray about the issue and are led to question our reasons for going to war with Iraq? People who think that the blood of the patriots defending this nation should not be spent "liberally"? Those who think the responsible duty of a good citizen is to actually question and reasonably debate the merits of the decisions our democratically elected leaders make? Notice that I did not say anything about Afganistan, where the actual mastermind of the 9-11 attacks was actually hiding out, and whom we still have not found and brought to justice.
Has patriotism and loving our country really been reduced to what seems to be "chearleading for the home team", right or wrong? Perhaps your idea of civic responsibility does not match mine. But I sure don't think you hate America and love terrorists because you don't agree with me. I really wish you'd do the same.
America, this is the type of ignorance and arrogance we are up against. We present the facts and liberals distort some abstract concept of freedom as some weak emotional rebuttal to logic. I almost pity them in their ignorance, but refrain from said pity, aware that one day I might be called upon to b!?@#-slap them for their stupid silliness.
And if that time should come, pre-emptively, Your Welcome America,
Your Humble Servant,
