********<quoted text>OK JAY,
I've seen Americans desecrate our FLAG and so have you!
I don't know your age...But the Reverend Elijha Muhammad and Malcolm X and now Lewis Farrakhan have been preaching that Sh*t in the streets sense I can remember when?What has it got them other than suck money from people to make them rich.
A Islamic movement will never succeed in a Christian based society.
So I'll not spend my time worrying about it.
You seem to think Islam is something new to this country it really goes back a long way...just like every other religion...so now I'm suppose to feel some kinda of threat?I don't think so!
Thanks for your concern though!
I'm old enough to know what went on in our country in the years of "back when." And what I did not live to personally see, I have seen plenty in vintage film footages.
I have read of Malcolm X and watched numbers of films of his philosophy and listened to his verbiage. He was an angry man, and when he disassociated himself from the Muslim's they killed him at a young age. I believe he was only in his thirties.
Here's a story that will never happen today in America:
Back during the hippy era there was a large group of young people protesting the Vietnam War on the steps of a courthouse in a city up North. A group of guys who had heard this was going on there decided to ride their motorcycles up there to see what the ruckus was about. On the steps of this ancient courthouse in the square were monuments and bronze plaques of all the veteran's in that county who had died in the service of our country from all wars. Hippies were shouting and protesting about the war, screaming and shouting obscenities about America - and a few of them threatened to burn the American Flag. As momentum picked up, it was chaos that only took moments to turn into a melee of sorts. When more people began to gather, one of the hippie group tried to light the Flag on fire. One of the five bikers tore the Flag out of his hands, stuffed it in his leather jacket while the rest of them along with a number of citizens who had gathered, proceeded to beat the living crap out of the protesters.
It wasn't long before the police arrived to find people on the ground and people with bloody noses. When those pro Americans told the police what was going on, one of the biker's said, "No one burns my Flag!" Here's what the cops said, "Get on your bikes and move on out. The rest of you, clear out!" And with that they went over and proceeded to handcuff the rabble rousers, grabbing them off the ground and tossing them in the squads.
Picture that happening today. It never will again. We are told to stand back and allow them to curse our country, our way of life, and our National Emblem. All in the name of 'freedom of speech." And even if you are not even an American citizen...especially if you're not an American!
With the advent of political correctness, we have become cowards and defenseless against our courts and our rights as American citizens.
Tell me it's not true.
And no, Islam is not new. But yes, it is growing in our country.
